Very nice park, sites were clean and roomy, shower and bath house very undated with tile throughout. Only had 3 comodes in men's and womans had 4, showers were very nice but you never knew if you were going to have a warm or cold shower, pressure poor. Had to lput the shower handle to get them to work. Most of our trip the showers were barely warm. The play area and pool were nice and large. The Hot tub just warm at best. But we would stay here again. Got Satellite signal okay. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Bay Shore was a decent campground. The playground is older, but we liked the concrete pads on each site. They charge extra for air conditioning which we never even used but oh well. Some our family members really love Bayshore but we thought it wasn't anything special. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We have been camping here for 5 years. This year we decided to get a seasonal site here. Best decision yet. This gentleman runs a very clean campground. He doesn't put up with shenanigans of any sort. The restrooms are spotless. There are lots of fun activities. They have at least one band a month in the summer months. July had two bands. This weekend is Mardi Gras weekend and there will be two bands playing on Saturday afternoon and evening! We've made some good friends and every weekend is a blast! We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Clean campground with a friendly staff. The sites are narrow and many in our group had trouble getting into our sites. They charged extra for kids and A/C and they have a lot of rules. After charging extra for kids, they have adult swim every night from 8-10. This didn't seem very fair to the kids. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a really nice private park right on Pymatuning Lake in NE Ohio. The campground is well-run with lots of activities that you'd expect at a campground like this. The pool is rather small for a campground of this size and tends to fill up pretty quick. But the mandatory "breaks" that they take every hour helps to move people along. The rest rooms and showers were very nice and clean at all times. All of the RV/trailer sites have a sewer hook-up so that was a nice feature as well. And be careful with the water pressure. It's like a fire hose, so definitely bring a pressure regulator along. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very beautiful. Very clean. We had a lake front lot. Was probably the nicest lot ever. I can say restrooms were the cleanest I have ever seen. I was truly amazed at how clean the entire park was. Everything was paved; very nice for no dust. Definitely a must stop for your camping! We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mostly seasonal but a few short term sites available. Unlike many other campgrounds with lots of seasonals Bay Shore looked more like an RV resort with most seasonals having decorated and landscaped their plot. Of the hundreds or "permanent" RVs we only saw a couple older units. Nice grounds. Well maintained. We stayed on labor Day so rates were higher. They do offer Senior discount so normal rate would be about $32. Very nice pool and hot tub. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We are traveling in a 40' motorhome towing a mid-sized truck. Asked for and got a "pull thru" but the site so narrow and the entrance from road so tight we had to detach anyway and back in. This is not a "big rig friendly" park but otherwise very nice. Mainly seasonal campers: did not see another motorhome here. I am pretty sure I asked for a 50 amp site but all they have is 30amp. The rate of $20 a day reflects a 50% senior discount Monday-Thursday, so not bad at all. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This is absolutely one of the nicest campgrounds I have ever stayed at. They maintain it very well and there are strict rules to abide by. The campground is very quiet in the mornings and at night and pretty much throughout the day. If you are looking to party a lot and make all kinds of commotion, this is NOT the campground for you. However, if you are coming to camp and relax and enjoy Pymatuning Lake, this is an awesome campground to stay at. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is because it lacks a camp store. If they had a store or clubhouse, I would rate it a 10. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Great campground. My wife compares all other campgrounds to this one. Haven't found one yet that comes close to it. The bathrooms were always clean and well supplied. The temperature of the shower water could actually be controlled. We enjoy the sites as they are very level and a nice concrete pad. They stick to the rules very close. When they say kids back to site at a certain time that is when they should be there. They do not put up with any BS. This campground is on the Ohio side of Pynatuning Lake. The fishing from shore is OK. They have a dock for campers boats they is very well maintained. The permanent sites are all keep very neat. Never used the laundry room much so can't comment on that. They have a nice pool and surrounding area, with a small jacuzzi that is for adults only. They do adult night swims also. They also have a beautiful pavilion there. The horse shoe pits are also neat and cleanly kept. I hope this info helps you fellow campers. Have fun and good camping. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We've been coming to this campground for 20 years on and off. Over this time period we have seen no changes in the campground, either positive or negative. General maintenance is kept up but no improvements. During our last visit two years ago they were building a decorative fountain at the entrance. Two years later it still is not done. Owners states that there are plans for a new office, store, snack bar and new pool. At this rate we will be out of camping before we see these improvements. Having a big rig the roads are narrow and few sites can handle a trailer our size. Price represents off season rate. Normal rate is high for 30A and no cable. It will be a few more years before we return. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This was by far the cleanest campsite to which we have been. However, it was also the most expensive. There was a beautiful pool and hot tub area; however, there was nothing to do if it rained. Also, the rules given were not followed. Kids were riding their bikes all night. Several sites had up to four cars parked with only two allowed. Definitely not worth the price. Stay at the state campground just down the road for a lot less money. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This was the most beautiful, gorgeous campground I have camped at. The lot sizes were large and not crowded. The camp sites were not crowded with cars. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The showers were nice and hot and very clean. They keep their grounds in immaculate condition. My best campground ever! We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Tent.

The lake was great for fishing. The small town of Andover has a nice grocery store. We camped at Bay Shore Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.
