First and foremost, use website directions or call. Both my GPS's were wrong. Parked on grass so if raining, use discretion. Nice park but no sewer at site. A little tight for a 40 foot MH with a tow vehicle, but you can do it. We just did an overnight here....wifi as fair and direct tv good. - Djb

We stayed 5 nights for our annual anniversary get away, so we could drive to several Lake Erie outings half hour away. This is a very pretty family campground, well run with very friendly owners and staff. While the sites are all grassy, they are very level and many sites give ample shade, as ours did, particularly in the afternoon when it is needed in hot weather. The pool is immaculately clean. The office is large with a nice selection of items for sale and is connected to a very large recreation/game room. There's a catch and release fishing pond away from the campsites but on beautiful open-spaced land surrounded by trees. They provide sewer pump-out 2x a week + have a dump station since no sewer hook-ups. The one and only reason this is not a 10 star review is because of the very limited Wi-fi provided. There are no routers within the park so the hot spot is at the office and rec.center. Only e-mail and news reading are available, no downloading or streaming of any kind. I could not even look up information from a Google search nor be on Facebook, but it was MY choice not to use my phone data since I'm not addicted to phone & computer use, LOL. The camp name suited us perfectly: Gotta Getaway for us to reconnect with solitude. This campground provided it, with the exception of a train whistle each morning around 8 a.m. We would definitely camp here again. - Mumer

We camped here for 5 days over the Labor Day weekend.
The good: All mowed up and no trash lying around. Office/store area new, with large recreational hall, laundry, restrooms (no showers). Large pool with a pavilion adjacent. A catch and release fishing pond. A large pavilion next to a very large grass area. By the pool there are three newer individual shower/toilet/sink rooms with their own doors. One was out of service. A large modern playground. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. One section of the campground is mainly seasonals. This campground changed owners 3 seasons ago. New owners have been working on making improvements. The owners had numerous activities for the campers and their children on each day of the weekend, plus bands Saturday and Sunday.
The not so good: All sites are grass, with shared electric/water pedestals (2 units per) and a picnic table & fire ring for each site. No sewer hookups, Just one dump station. The sites are considered pull-thrus, but you have to driving across the lawn to get onto your site. 28 campers and RV's were stacked together like sardines. Two rows, back to back, with each rig offset by the space for picnic table and fire ring. There was an old shower house near our area. It had 2 shower stalls for men and 2 shower stalls for women, along with toilet stalls. Wifi was basically useless. It couldn't handle email that contained photos or graphics. Forget about checking your Facebook account. It was a hot weekend, upper 90's. On Saturday our main section lost power, and it was not restored for the rest of the weekend. A reported power panel melt down. Because we were booked until Wednesday, the owners moved us to a vacant seasonal site that had power. An "A" for effort to the owners. We will probably not camp here again, since we like full hookup sites, and more space between us and our camping neighbors. And the security of knowing that the campground power will not go out on hot summer days. - BobbyH

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

Aug 2013 - $31.00
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

This was the worst campground that we have ever stayed at. The entrance to the park was difficult to maneuver with a travel trailer. The one lane bridge to the entrance is an accident waiting to happen. The campsites were so small and close together that you could not even park your vehicle on your site. Other campers thought nothing of just walking through the middle of your campsite to get where they were going. Including walking right between the lawn chairs you were sitting in! The quite rules were not enforced. They have many permanent sites and golf carts at this campground. People were driving by at all hours of the day and night. One night at 12:30 a.m. people were driving by in golf carts yelling and honking their horns. For fire pits they had metal tubs with holes in them that looked like they came out of washing machines. Our campsite was so close to our neighbor that we could hear everything they said. Including the cursing fist fight that the man and woman had in the wee hours of the morning (4:00 a.m.) that went on for over an hour. No one from the campground came to break it up or even speak to these people. The bathrooms were so dark and filthy, my children were afraid to go in them. This is not a family campground. - ScrapperJo

Pay the tolls and stop at the Milan Travel Parking Milan Ohio because it had good ratings according to Good Sam. Well, after paying $40 in tolls we were met by a surly woman who never even bothered to tell us that the bath house was closed and that the only restrooms were the ones behind the office. The WiFi is the Worst we have encountered anywhere. I ended up using my phone. The place is filthy and run down. The toilet stall doors are falling off and there was a spider web the size of a trash can in the men's room. The only men's room available in this large park is the one behind the office and it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a month. And even with the Good Sam discount it came to $40. Had I seen how bad it was before I paid, I would have dry camped in a parking lot some place. - Chuckstr89134

We stayed here because all other campgrounds were booked for a last minute visit to Cedar Point. So we went in already thinking this was a place just to park and sleep for the night!
$60/night is expensive for this campground.
Staff is very friendly there and on the phone. They printed my tickets off no questions asked and with a smile.
Pools looked sketchy and green. We didn't use it.
Sites were very very tight!! The charcoal BBQ they provided on each RV site was so close to the adjacent sites that if they used it I was afraid it would burn up my trailer. That's how tight the sites were.
The weekend was insane with people that there was barely any room for cars to park. Even though there were a lot of people the park was generally quiet. Bathrooms and showers are run down and moderately clean.
The bunny farm is more like an uncovered rabbit pen.
Its generally close to Cedar Point. We wouldn't go back. - Gabriela

Park was full of trees which made it difficult to maneuver with a motor home. There is an extra fee for cable. Crop dusters were flying overhead before 7 am. - Meme508

The office staff couldn't have been any nicer. We changed our reservation once and our site twice, and they just kept smiling! Many trees, if you need satellite TV, ask for sites 12-16. Wifi did not work in site 16. May be better closer to the office. Very convenient to Sandusky and Cedar Point theme park. Mekong Vietnamese restaurant is excellent if you're interested. - SusanRon

Nice check in, interior roads are very hard to large units, our site was 30amp with water. We could just fit my jeep in front of our RV.Grass sites, gravel roads, not big rig friendly at all. Nice staff. - KCook3

We were traveling to MI and needed place to spend the night. We saw this campground and decided to try it. The campground was 30 mins off of 80. It's a small, cute campground which has tents, 5th wheels, cabins and large RVs. The owners bought this campground 2 years ago and have made it a cute place for families to stay. We called and emailed the office for a reservation. We had no problems driving through park, level spot, full hook up. We'd definitely come back. - kimme

We stayed two nights here. We were going to Cedar Point which is only 5 minutes away. Camp grounds were nice, lots of activities for the kids. We were there on weekdays so it wasn't too crowded. If you were there during a busy time it would feel crowded for sure. They allow 24 hour check in, which may be typical, however our first night there people checked in at 12:30am and proceeded to noisily set up their camp until after 2am. We have never experienced people setting up camp in the middle of the night right next to us. The campground was probably 25% full so they could have placed these late arrivers somewhere not near people who were trying to sleep. - Walther Fam

This is a relatively big busy park in the summer. Most use this as a base for Cedar Point. There is allot to offer..but you are parked close together. There is a permanent section, that looks to be run down. Unfortunately, because of the size of my 45 foot RV, I had to park facing the permanent section. - sse

Camp sites were very narrow. There were a couple loose dogs on the grounds that were breeds not allowed at KOA campgrounds. Many campers were loud, and did not clean up cans, bottles and other garbage on their sites.
Managment was notified, but was unresponsive. - epoux

This is a huge park that is almost all full timers in house trailers, travel trailers, etc. Many are boaters with docks at the sites. There are a few primitive sites and trailer sites for nightly use. If you are stuck, during the week is acceptable. Small sites, no privacy and little vegetation. The power went out constantly and it was in the 90s; so that caused a lot of concern being gone during the day with a fridge full of food and a pet in the trailer. The staff is exceptional, very friendly, professional and helpful. If it is a weekend, opt for the rest stop on 90 as a more enjoyable one night stay. My last night was a Friday. The site behind me (since they are so small, on my site too) had about 40 people drinking, cussing, and playing corn hole. Also a lot of really bad country rock Karaoke. Folks constantly walked directly through your site to get to where they are going, in addition to unsupervised children . Really about the worst camper etiquette and management oversight situation I have encountered in 45 years of camping. Considering the size of the park, they really need to have some type of night supervision on site to keep things in check. - Robi

It is a seasonal campground. Only 4 pull thru sites. Bath house marginal and right next to very smelly dump station. It was quiet (no one there) but nothing else good to say about it. - Ascolo

We were in town for a lacrosse tournament and this was minutes from the fields and Cedar Point. There is a small store and a clean laundry room at the entrance. When you first drive in there are many permanent sites but most are well maintained and everyone we met was very friendly. The sites are level and have more room than many campgrounds we've been to. Although we didn't use the actual restrooms the showers are separate and could definitely use some updating. There is a nice playground for kids, kayaks and canoes to rent, and activities run by the campground. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - coldwaterconch

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

A 1st class campground that puts you right next to the theme park. Excellent bathrooms and showers. Good Wi-Fi and cable. Shuttle service to park could be a little better based on crowds. Privacy at camp site that are spaced just right. Only downfalls is the customer service could be better and somehow controlling the birds and spiders that seems to be everywhere and sites. Recommend this campground for anyone going to the theme park. - Biggyrat
Jul 2016 - $112.00
Pros: Proximity to Cedar Point. Shuttle Service allowed us to not have to disconnect from the tow vehicle. Level sites with cement pads, full hook up.
Cons: Price. Sites are a bit narrow. Pool was too dirty to swim in, and the BBQ grill was never emptied of coals.
Note: The sewer connection had a screw inside the pipe, which prevented our sewer hose from being able to make a tight connection.
Overall, it is a nice park and we will return. We felt the high cost was worth paying for the convenience of being on site. We were unable to fully extend our awning due to the placement of arborvitae hedge around the patio area, but we were able to get the slide outs extended. - Pioneer24

Very nice site, early entry into park. Park was having water issues (not park's fault). Pull through sites are very long with great shade. - KCook3
