Nice primitive camping site. We enjoyed this scenic place. There are some nice walking trails. You are surrounded by trees and right next to the river. Lots of room for the family. The bathrooms were typical for s state park. - TomG

Actually - we left. It was very crowded with lots of vehicles coming and going on poor gravel roads. Not much width or turning areas. Seemed to be lots of seasonals. Friendly bunch, but way too crowded for our tastes. - CacheMann

Entry Road is in awful shape, very rutted and with heavy rains campers get trapped from either entering or leaving. The water smells bad. Would not use for cooking. It was windy and there was a sewer smell through out the campground. It did have a nice playground and some activities for kids. No pool, just a pond. People swam in it but not me. Lots of golf carts driving around and some recklessly driven in the woods. If you like live music and loud music you will be happy because there was a band playing till 11:30 pm at night. Camp sites aren't bad, average size and stone. Some were grass. I would definitely fill my fresh water tank and not hook up to their water. I would use my own clean camper bathroom also. Bath/shower house not very clean. - Old Crash

Pros: 1) Good hook ups on nicely graveled pull-through sites. 2) Very friendly, helpful staff. 3) Good WiFi is available for a small fee. Cons: 1) At least 80% of the sites are for seasonal (full time) campers. 2) There are some steep hills at the entrance to the campground. 3) The pull through sites are not very level. Blocking is requires. We would consider a short stay at this campground again. - Byron Bailey

We stopped here for one night and ended up staying for three. Extremely nice hosts, and a very well kept park. While not near some of the major restaurants there was an Applebes, and Bob Evans fairly near by. A great bakery is in downtown Gibsonburg too. If you want a quiet leisurely place to stay this is it. Water pressure and electric was very good, and the sites reasonably level with a good distance between campers. We would have rated it higher if they would have had a laundromat and Wi-Fi. - buckeye1268

Used as overnight stop only - fairly long drive from I-80. To get into park you have to navigate around low overhanging and decorative boulders on the road edges and corners. Pull through sites only available for overnight stays, $30 for 30 amp, extra $5 for 50 amp. Note: pull through sites are better set up for truck towing 5th wheel or trailer, rather than motorhome towing a vehicle due to the placement of the hookups. Fire pits are positioned mid way on the site, not front or rear, so no air flow between sites. No security on site after hours, or anyone to contact. I would not go back. - annmarieh

This is a great park located across the street from the White Star Park and White Star Quarry. There is swimming, fishing, and SCUBA available at the park and this is a great place to stay if you wish to camp for SCUBA certifications or a weekend of diving. The campground can get rowdy on the weekends, but nothing that is out of control. As of July 2017 there were only 2 pull-through sites with 50 AMP service. There is a water hook-up but it is over 100ft away (about 103 ft to be exact). There is no sewer hook-up but there is a dump station on site. The firewood is very hit or miss in quality and quantity for the $5 honor system. It does seem to be patrolled regularly by a park ranger which is appreciated. Will stay there again. There aren't many trees so summer camping can be rough on 30 Amp service if the pull-throughs are booked. - steined

We stayed 3 nights to see the area as there weren't any other options that were centrally located for us to reach the sites we came to visit.
The park is better suited for long term residents. The park was built on agricultural land and is surrounded by farming operations. Access from US-20 is either three quarters (from CR-175, S Ridge Rd) to a mile (from SR-101) along a paved, single lane farm road. Don't know if the shoulders of the road would support the weight of a Class A diesel pusher if there was opposing traffic that required leaving the paved portion of the road but the slope of the shoulder really didn't invite pulling onto the shoulder to find out.
Check-in included signing a 4 page agreement and providing proof of insurance for the RV (and towed vehicle). There was an escort to the site.
The access gate posed a problem due to the type of gate (pivoted up into the air) and the location of the key pads.
The interior roads and site parking pads were constructed of large crushed repurposed asphalt/stone. The roads/parking pads are still settling. Almost all of the corners are tight 90 degree turns. There is only one pull-through site, which has a 90 degree turn to exit. All of the remaining sites require a 90 degree back in to get on the parking pad. The sites (which included the parking pad & adjacent open space) are very wide. Privacy between the sites is based upon distance. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50 amp), and sewer. The utility connections were spread along the parking pads. The water was generally at the back of the pads. The sewer was generally towards the front of the pads. The electric was about midway down the sites. This layout required a lot of hose/cable (going in different directions) to reach the connections.
They do not accept credit cards. Cash or check only. Ended up paying an additional $5.00 due to calculation error at time of check in.
There were no trees to obstruct satellite reception. Didn't try to receive any broadcast channels. - bsb814

The rate reflects a 2 week rate. This is a fairly new Campground. The owners live on site and make sure the rules are adhered to. Boisterous loud activities are not permitted. Party animals may not be happy here. The roads and spots are gravel and very level. There is a lake for swimming, which is very clean. It looks like the Campground was carved out of a farmers field, so there are no shade trees. Young ones have been planted for future shade. There had been a lot of rain just before we got there so a lot of the grass ares were mud holes. Things dried up after a couple of days. Most of the campers are seasonal and very friendly, quiet folks that watch out for each other. The water is county water and pressure is good. The entrance is gated and we felt very safe. We will go back. - esta34950

A delightful place to stay. We had a pull though site with full hookups. It was very quiet and an easy place to find. We took the ferry to Put-In-Bay and to see the peach memorial. This place has a small golf course, a hotel and a cafeteria. I would recommend this as a good place to stay. - rolling homeless

Sites are level and spacious. Interior roads are paved and easy to maneuver. Park grounds well maintained but pool areas are lacking (sauna not working, outside whirlpool dirty). The park was perfect for us as we did not spend much time in the park due to sightseeing in the area. Park was like a ghost town given the time of year. No planned activities. Pools were open. Check in at security building. Day shift shift security guard not friendly or welcoming, thus low service rating. No other service provided. - Mustcamp

Stayed here 6 yrs ago and doesn't seem to have changed much if any. Security comes on strong, but doesn't seem to enforce much. Conditions for hookups is still poor...water hookups bent, electric boxes in poor deterioration causing concern and not being fixed or cared for as evidenced by more than 20 boxes looked at all needing replacement due to elec flashing. Sewer hookups , many many broken yet serviceable, when security contacted, explanation was lawn mowing caused it. Wifi was so slow, used my smart phone. Reservations were for Coast 2 Coast practically unavailable (only 3 slots) and yet park was less than 20% filled! To be fair, campsites roomy and easy access. Location for local amenities is what drew us back a second time, but have initiated another look for other sites. My Coast 2 Coast got me a $ 30 slot instead of a $10 per my membership. Not much value for a campground in obvious decline with so much to offer. Reservation help does not seem too concerned about customers concerns. - rahangman

Upon check in, I had to ask directions to our campsite, as they didn't feel the need to tell us. The gift shop was closed the whole weekend. We weren't given a list of activities, so when we heard music playing, we walked to find it & seen they were having a dance. People looked at us like we didn't belong, so we walked back to our camper. Terrible weekenders in tents behind us. The woman was pregnant and had several kids already. She cussed at the kids all weekend. I had to go over to the electric box and remove the power cord from her 2 year old, who was playing with it! - dallas 66

This is a very nice, clean mom and pop type campground. The sites are decent size and level. The campground is located well off a state highway, down a country road so it is very peaceful and quiet. There is a swimming lake and a fishing lake. There are lots of seasonal campers but there are several lots available for 'weekenders.' The staff is personable, friendly and helpful. There is a camp store which is well stocked with all of the essentials. We would definitely stay here again. - loribrady
