Clay's resort was the only RV park in the Canton area that we could find a parking site for the full month we planned to stay. All the other parks we checked had no sites over the weekends, which are booked all the way through when they close after Halloween. Clay's Park was the most expensive ($41.66 per night, no discounts)), did not include sewer, WiFi or cable TV. The addition of sewer would have been an additional $1000!! But pump outs twice a week were only $165 a week. We pulled into the park using the OH 93 entrance. When we arrived, we were met at the entrance gate by the staff that rudely told us to pull forward but not to block anyone. With a 61-foot long combination (Trailer and truck) and no place to pull off the road, that was impossible, but the young lady did not understand. When we checked in, the same young lady handed us the package from the mail forwarding service that we had arrange to be sent ahead and told him this one was a special case and that they would not accept any more packages. There is no such restriction explained on the website, nor was anything said during the reservation call. She suggested we should go down the road and get a PO box, any packages received would be sent back. Not a very friendly reception. We received plastic bracelets we were told we had to wear whenever we were in the park! We also found out that any visitors we had, even though they were just coming to visit us and not use any of the parks other attractions, would be charged $17 for a day!!! They did not provide an escort to our site. The park is huge and the sites are not marked very clearly. Once off the main entrance/exit roads, the roads are gravel or broken pavement, lots of potholes, washed out and very narrow with many speed bumps. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park is unique. There are many nice short trails to hike in addition to the 110 mile tow path trail. Corky and Lenny's is a must visit Jewish Deli.

Huge park with high percentage of permanent residents. Local schools, businesses and organizations bus kids for picnics and day use of park's water park, which is very nice but crowded. Escorted to site, which is necessary if you've never been here before. Due to size and use of park by non-campers it is noisy and rules are not consistently enforced. Site had drainage ruts, severe incline made it impossible to get level. We stayed so our grands could enjoy the swimming pools and water park. Snack bar was large and expensive. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Motorhome.

When we reserved we were told that the rate would be $51/night for a primative site (no electricity, no water, no table). Since there was no other camping nearby, we agreed. Upon arrival we were charged $70/night for two nights (two night minimum apparently). After being escorted to our site (which was nice, by the way) we discovered that although we had been told that no electric sites were available, there were a bunch on the other side of the roar. A campground host agreed to let us move to an electric site on the other side of the road. Anyway long story short-- massively overpriced if only camping and not using the waterpark but good customer service. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Truck Camper.

We would have given this campground 9 out of 10 if not for some self inflicted problems they could have avoided. Things that could have been avoided: 1. Price gauging - Paying $7 for 5 split logs. Doubling the price of golf carts to $130 per day just because it was Memorial Day. Uugh! 2. Mud holes in camping lanes could have been avoided with some gravel. 3. Mini golf flood lights weren't working. 4. Did anyone even attempt to get the newer Sunnyside campsites level? Should have been easy but evidently a challenge for the excavator. 5. No paved or graveled place to pull rig over at northern check-in station. Things that were pluses: 1. Amenities - Clay's is large on amenities. 2. Activities - plenty of activities during the weekend. 3. Cleanliness for such a large and busy park. 4. Camper behavior was relatively quiet. This is a large campground (500 acres) and many of the best sites are taken by permanent campers. Very nice adventure park that we would visit again, especially if they work on the self inflicted short comings. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

500 acre campground means some sites nearly a mile from amenities so think about golf cart or vehicle to get around. Sites in the Sunnyside area along the back edge were more roomy and offered clear view of hay field.

Went there for a 3 day concert. They kept up with the influx without missing a beat. Porto's were as clean as can be expected. Very relaxed atmosphere. Had a great time.

Not sure of the actual rate, as the camping was included with the concert tickets. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Tent.

The park is not exactly beautiful natural scenery unless you like travel trailers clustered around a small lake. They have lots of rules too. You are required to wear a wristband....but why?

It is a RV park with lots of permanent trailers with the usual trailer junk surrounding them. It's fine for those who like that sort of thing, but when I go traveling I want peaceful beautiful natural surroundings. You don't get that at Clays! We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed during Country Fest. Park was overwhelmed as we expected. We attended the Fest and that was our reason for staying in the park. It was convenient to be in the park. Would be stay otherwise, probable not. Interior roads and layout not designed for a long RV like ours. Roads were very rough with lots of pot holes. Site driveways were angled the wrong direction. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Motorhome.

We visited this park shortly after it had opened for the season. It did not live up to our expectations at all. We sincerely hope things improve soon for future campers. Among the problems we experienced were: an unlevel site, overflowing dumpsters out of walking distance, no cable TV and poor local TV reception, and there was no Internet at sites unless paid for extra. Our own Verizon service worked, but kept dropping out. We found dirt in the water line when hooking up, and subsequently experienced intermitent changes in water pressure (including one instance while we were doing laundry when the water service was turned completely off with no warning). The entrance road is in poor condition with large potholes. The signature water park section of Clays Park had not opened by the date of our departure (although we were required to wear hot pink armbands at all times), and the children's playground remained closed and roped off for our entire stay. We found a dead racoon near the road during a walk around the park our first night in residence. On the other hand, staff at the park were quite friendly, and a nice "welcome back" dinner was provided free of charge our first night. This park appears to attract a fair amount of seasonal clients. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a place for children, lots for them to do and they can join the other 500 that are there every weekend in their golf carts. Mostly full time sites, some with lots of junk around. Sites are gravel and mostly level, our parking spot was level but the rest was not. Roads are in terrible condition, potholes, huge speed bumps with gaps so the speeding golf carts can go thru. Staff very friendly. This is not the place for an overnight or a peaceful stop. We would not stay here again. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Motorhome.

This is not a Big Rig friendly campground. Some of the sites that are reserved for Big Rigs will not fit any camper larger than 36 feet. Fortunately, we arrived mid-week and were able to say "no" to the site assigned to us. On the weekend we would not have been so lucky. The roads are filled with pot holes and the 'speed bumps' are too high for a Big Rig RV. If you want to fish and go to the beach and you have a smaller camper and you like paying too much for site, then this is the camp for you. Unfortunately, they do not have much competition; however, we will find a different camp ground when we are in the area again. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Motorhome.

Clay's Park is an awesome campground if you have kids. Their is so much to do. You kids will be entertained all day. When we were there some of the lifeguards were going through people's cooler looking for alcohol. They mean business when they say no alcohol in the park. I actually respect that they follow through. The campground is very expensive, but we weren't disappointed. They have a log roll in the water that was fun. On certain weekends they have events. The reason I did not rate a ten, is because it's very expensive. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Motorhome.

We arrived just as they were gearing up for Independence Day. The park was crowded with families enjoying the weekend. There were many full timers there with decks and other additions to their permanent sites. We were there only for a place to park during a family get together to celebrate my parent's 90 and 91st birthdays at their home and had to pay a premium price for the holiday. We were first shown a nice pull through but, on the way back to the office, we noticed an open spot right next to the lake which they hesitated to give us due to our size (45 foot). The office staff were very friendly and did everything they could to accommodate us. The spot was on the small side for our bus and not very level. We ended up listing slightly to starboard but it was our choice given the spectacular view of the lake. Reading some of the other reviews have me wondering if they were talking about the same park we visited. Evidently, things have changed drastically since others have written reviews. Looking around, all the electrical stanchions were new with 50 amp service, the water pressure was great and we remarked on how well kept the grounds were. Yes, there may have been some noise but, you must understand, our stay was during one of the major holiday weekends. People were outside, enjoying each other's company, Lots of kids, dogs and family activities. I grew up in the area and we visited Clay's park when I was a kid. It was not much more than a swimming hole back then. Today, it is one of the nicest RV parks we've ever visited. Sure, there is always room for improvement (easier access to the dumping station) but it seems that the management is working hard to make everyone's stay pleasant. Clay's Park will always be our favored place to stay when visiting family. We're going back in a couple of weeks and we'll take the time to enjoy some of their many activities. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Motorhome.

What was once a great park is no more. I have come to this park for many years, and what I am seeing now is truly sad. Maintenance of the park is terrible. When we stayed the electric went out in the part of the park we were in, and it was several hours for it to come back on. Try staying in your camper when it is sunny and 90 degrees. Maintenance had no reason for this as well as how long it would be off. Very rude to us when we inquired about time frame. Water pressure in the park is terrible as well as sewer smell coming from campers when they dump their holding tanks. Maintenance had no answer for this other than deal with it. People were tent camping by a tree. The tree has a large branch that from the looks of it broke last winter during the ice storm. The branch looks like it has been hanging there a long time. Security in the park: forget it when it comes to enforcing park rules. Went to camp restaurant/store. We knew the girl working behind counter. She was selling beer to under age minors, and she is only 18 years old. Looked around park and a lot of seasonal campers are gone: wonder why? As I said in the beginning, was once a great park. If you have money and want to waste it, come to Clays Park. If you are limited on your funds, go somewhere else. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Family reunion ruined! We reserved sites for 10 travel trailers, 5 months in advance, not one was in same area. We explained that we booked way in advance, they assured us we would be together. We complained, they told us to leave if we did not like it and would not refund our deposits. The site was a death trap, 4 legs coming down the water sprayed electrical hook up. 7 wires per breaker lead. Water? Not enough pressure to brush your teeth, forget about doing dishes. Went swimming and cut my foot. The 16 year old life guard was told by her supervisor not to use too many butterfly wound closures because they were expensive. I got to cut one in half. She closed the wound full of sand. They did not even want to see the jagged concrete where I cut myself. Band aids are cheaper than concrete repair. The pool has a nice array of floating band aids and oil slicks, watch out for pink eye. Overall, nice concept but the owners are not running a resort. They are more interested in filling their pockets with your money. Stay away from Clay's park. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this park over Memorial Day weekend. It was a very nice campground with a lot to do. The waterpark/beach area is very nice and was a huge hit with our whole family. The only small complaint I would have regarding the lake is that the water was quite cold but that is to be expected for this time of year in northeast Ohio! We have a golf cart and were very thankful for that since the sites are pretty far from the beach. The sites are a bit close together in some areas, but we have a 40 foot fifth wheel toy hauler and didn't have much of a problem getting into our site. The restaurant on site is nice for a quick snack and their breakfast buffet was nice and quite inexpensive. Over the holiday weekend, they had a band/DJ both Friday and Saturday night which was quite a hit with the adults and kids. The only downside to this park is the amount of golfcarts and it doesn't seem as though they really care who is driving them. I saw quite a few young kids on them later into the evening going quite fast. Other than that, it is a wonderful campground with so much to do. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Clay's Park Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
