1 Park near Bellevue, Ohio
Sep 2015 - $36.00
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

A very nice CG, lots of grass and well planned except for the entrance. The sites were not cramped, about 20% permanent campers all were maintained and well kept. Paul the owner is very personable and the CG shows owner pride and concern for his customer. Sewer was not available however an easy access dump station located just before you depart the CG was clean and easy to access. The CG has a very large swimming pool and store that was well stocked. ***Warning, Warning*** The driveway leading into the park is very steep causing the spare tire bracket on the rear bumper to bend upward on my new (6 month old) 5th Wheel. IMPORTANT when pulling into the CG, if your rig is 20 ft or longer DO NOT approach driveway head on, YOU MUST, again... YOU MUST (Pay close attention to this part) approach from a 45 degree angle. I spoke with Paul about the damage to the tire bracket and expressed my concern. He was very accommodating offered to remove the bracket, took it to his shop, straightened the bracket, repainted and remounted the spare tire. I was pleasantly surprised and appreciative. He knows the concerns about the driveway, and my only reason for my less then 10 rating for the CG. My compliments and rating for the owner Paul is an 10+. We would highly recommend this CG for cleanliness, organization, value, customer service is +++ and very pleasant atmosphere. - Travel Talk

This campground had the best reviews within 90 minutes of Cleveland Clinic. Very nicely kept grounds, with manicured expanses of lawn, and a pool and playground equipment that looked brand new. Sites were grass with no bare spots or mud. Many seasonals, all very late-model and extremely well-kept. A LOT of kids. No sewer hookups. Shared water/elec hookups. At 10am on a Sunday morning, individual/unisex bath/shower rooms' floors had standing water with grass clippings, etc. floating around. Toilet wasn't filthy, but definitely "hover-worthy". Pitiful WiFi. Sites up near the office get the brunt of US20 noise. Pull-thru sites were very wide, but set up kind in a strange "staggered back-to-back" layout, with the back-end of the neighboring camper partially in our site. The way the sites were configured, those neighbors had to walk through our site to get to the pool, playground, etc. Those same neighbors are of the very few who actually use their outside speakers to listen to the radio all afternoon at high volume. Despite calls from us and others, the campground staff didn't do anything. A couple nights we were sitting outside trying to enjoy the fire, but kept getting a real strong whiff of black tank. A couple of us checked around and didn't see anyone leaking - we suspected that maybe the campground's septic leach field was starting to fail or something, since the one-hole dumpstation was at the top of the hill right behind our row of sites. The single driveway into the campground rises very abruptly/steeply from US20 with a bunch of scratch-marks in it. We scraped the rear-end of our 34-foot fiver on the way out. Generally OK, but $38 and no sewer hookup? The next time we might go the extra 20 miles to one of the better parks in Sandusky. - gomershad
