24 Parks near Cortland, Ohio

We stayed at Mosquito Lake State Park over Labor Day weekend. It was our first visit to this park. In general we like State Parks better than private campgrounds as they tend to be a better value. Mosquito Lake did not change that perception for us. We live in the Pittsburgh area and were looking for somewhere nearby to park our 37' motorhome for the long weekend. We had site 161, which had a bit of slope to the rear, but is paved (like all of the sites), and 50a, 30a, and 20a power available. There is no water or sewer at the sites, but both are available within the campground. The campground provides easy access to the beach, dog play area, and the marina. The roads are wide and we had no problem maneuvering our motorhome throughout. There is a basketball court, sand volleyball court, archery range, and amphitheater where movies are played and events are held . The sites are large and spacious with picnic table and fire ring. - lazyjourney

Mosquito Lake Campground is a beautiful park situated around Mosquito Lake near Youngstown, Ohio.
A few notes:
Make sure you are camping in a self contained unit as the bathrooms are latrines and the showers are non existent. But hey for the price it's ok.
Most sites have 30/50 amp service. No sites have water or sewer hookups. - ETCTA

Gorgeous well-maintained campground. Easy access in, out, and throughout the campground. Awesome dog park on the far end of the campground near the beach. Great value for $25.00 a night. Will definitely be back! - Bill from PA

Super friendly staff/owner. The facilities were OK basic showers and restrooms.
This park has a lot of semi permanent residents who don't keep their sites the cleanest. The person who was in my site prior left pieces of lumber, flip flop and bits of trash everywhere.
Given the fact that the owner was super friendly I would stay here again. - ETCTA

We had no problems with tight spaces, our pull through was long and wide. A very nice and friendly campground, will stay here again when in the area. - DRF

We were caught in heavy rain, which slowed us to the point that we could not make it to our planned campground. We called Hubbard and they confirmed they had large, open, level spaces for a 40' motorhome. We arrived after dark and discovered this was a campground we had been to some 10 years earlier in our new 38' MH. We got stuck, the sites were so out of level our jacks would not level us enough to open slides and branches scratched the sides of our new MH. When I recognized the campground we left in a hurry. I wish they had been truthful about the condition of their campground. We spent the night at a nearby Flying J. - we_rv

We stayed one night on our way to NY. The grounds were neat and clean. The eight pull-through sites did not have sewer. There were bees inside the electric box when we hooked up. The 30 amp electric tripped when we ran the microwave and coffee pot in the morning. There were some low hanging branches on one side of the road going out. We would not stay here again. - D&R

Traveling on the I-80 we needed an overnight spot and this was perfect. Beautifully kept large grassy park with a lake and facilities to large gatherings, spots for long-term visitors, and a large grassy field for pull through overnighters like us. Perfect. Lots of elbow room and a friendly staff. The owners are working to improve the park and decided to not sell it to developers and keep it as a park. What a good thing. The WiFi doesn't work on site but our Verizon phone worked good and satellite TV on the roof came through so we were happy. We were charged $25 but asked that if we used our AC to come back to the office and pay another $5. That was fair. We will certainly stay here again for a night or two if traveling though the area. - Bearpaw

They only have 39 sites with full hookups. They were rented to extended stay folks and none of them seemed to be there. This is a park like atmosphere with activities that would be found at a private lake. The poor rating is based upon the decline to use the dump station, and the worthless bath house facilities. I was told to use the dump station at Flying J truck stop back at the interstate because it was free. The bath house was made from old non stained wood and was black from water stain inside. You pulled on a chain and received cold water out of a pipe without a shower head on it. The floor was bare concrete that had not been cleaned in forever. There was an old locker in the entrance that has an animal nest in the bottom, where some kind of creature had spent the winter. It had not been cleaned in years. If you just want to stop and stay the night with water and electric, using your own self contained bathroom, this would be all right. The grass was mowed and the lake was a nice touch. - rod

We picked this park because it had a playground and a place to swim. The playground is excellent with numerous apparatus for different age levels. The lake not so nice, the bottom is slimy and the "beach" is nothing but dirt. The campground is mostly level but the roads are very rough, The sites are gravel and uneven so water tends to sit after it rains. The wires in a few places are low, so much so, that I watched someone coming in get caught up in the wire crossing the road. The "pull thru" sites are front back ones making them a little confusing, especially the connections and which to use. Our neighbors were very noisy into the evening with their motorcycles and music, the park seems to cater to lots of seasonal and day workers. The sites are mostly treed. - HRambler

Arrived late and left early, due to tight travel plans. Lots of tall trees, very level grounds, gated. Didn't have a chance to meet staff, but they were super helpful over the phone. Tons of vintage playground equipment, a bit rough around the edges, but kids didn't mind. Swimming pond looked nice but we didn't have a chance to use. Easy pull thru sites. - GMC_STRIPES

Overall, a nice RV park in a pretty setting. Lots of seasonal campers, some with rigs that are not too pretty. No cable TV, but plenty of channels off the air. Horrible interior roads, so badly rutted and potholed that 5 mph was way too fast. Full hookups, but the overhead power wires were a bit low (we snagged our TV antenna on the line over our site). Friendly and helpful staff. Good place for an overnight stop on the road. - Ray Waugh

Friendly staff, all that one expects from the Army Corp parks! Clean site, facilities. Senior pass rate always a welcome value.
OTA and Verizon both good. Stayed two nights and was so pleased I stayed another two.
Will be sure to return yet again. First come sites are great for travelers! - Wicked Witch

This is an old Army Corps of Engineer campground that is in need of upgrading. Of the 321 sites, only 109 have 30 amp power. There is no 50 amp electric or water at the camp sites, however you may be lucky enough to have a site close to a water hydrant that you could tie into with a "Y" or "T" adapter. There is no sewer at any site although there is a dump station with two access points.
The electric sites are situated very close together. The non-electric sites are more spacious, especially those that back up to the water. Those are lovely sites if you want to/can boondock.
If you camp at an electric site, plan on taking leveling blocks with you as many will require side to side leveling. Also you may need blocks for your rear stabilizers because some of the sites "drop off" in the back.
The restrooms/showers are very old and need major refurbishing. The restrooms were clean and serviced regularly, we didn't use the showers.
The rates vary for the campground: Electric-$24.00; Lakefront non-electric-$21.00; Other not-electric0$19.00; and Multiple Family Site-$34.00. They do accept the "Golden Access" and "America the Beautiful Access" cards which gives you a 50% discount.
All in all, it is an okay campground and we will stay there again. - dmoore1108

Many of the best sites are lakefront, but are non-electric sites. Consequently, many generators in these areas, some noisy. No water at many of the sites, so fill up before you go in. 330 sites and one dump station (2 sides), so plan your exit time carefully. Bathrooms really need to be refurbished, and the showers are horrible both in layout and cleanliness. That said, the layout of the campground layout is pretty good and most sites are well spaced. Flat land so good for bicycles. There is no official beach or swimming area, but the water is accessible behind some sites. Very good 4 lane boat ramp. Security is excellent and park rangers are always very close. Verizon coverage = 2 out of 5 stars. Several local TV stations available. All electric sites have a GFCI breaker on the power pedestal, which has been a problem for some around the campground. Seems like the GFCIs disagree with surge suppressors. - Bama Camper

What a great hidden gem. The friendliest campground we have visited. Lots to do. They had a potluck/soup lunch with a huge screen showing the OSU football game the weekend we were there. This was an inside pavilion. They also have a large outdoor shelter house which is used often. My only complaint is that this is not really big rig ready. We reserved a pull through for our 42 ft couch with a pull vehicle, only to arrive and 2 small campers were already there. The site they finally found for us was very level but a bit of a twist and turn to get the RV into. Very open with trails for golt carts. Now that I know what to expect, I would visit again but see if a better spot could be found first. - LifeIsShort

Roads are tight. Spaces are narrow and small. Electric is 25' away, water is 30' away. We sank about 6" into pad and about 12" in grass. If we didn't have to be in the area for 4 days we wouldn't be here. If you need to stay in area for 1 night use Wal-Mart. - cat3126B

This is a nice park mostly seasonal. Very nice seasonal sites. Weekender sites are grass with some stones. Swim lake is very clean, bathrooms are clean. Owners are very nice. They have a phone on the front of the office that rings to one of their cell phones so they can be reached 24 hours. The kitchen is open on weekends: the cheese steaks are great. They also live on site. We will camp here again. - camper1

We also were charged more then the rate stated on the web site. We asked why and were ignored. Site was not level at our "premium" site. Gravel roads dusty. Restroom facilities are OK in center of park. Lots of traffic all day and night. Good Wi-Fi. Close to am Amish community which had a meat market EXCELLENT meat but priced much like a grocery store. Here for a week; probably NOT stay here again. - Trikki Rikki

Made reservations 1 week ahead of time. Arrived at campground at allowed register time, found no one in office. Had to use phone on front of office to call someone to register us. Register process went very well. Roadway into campground was full of holes from road to gate. Registration papers showed that restroom would be cleaned everyday at a certain time. We arrived on Tuesday and it wasn't cleaned until Friday for the permanents to come in Friday night. The lakes were in very good shape. Some of the permanent campsites were very messy. Won't be going back to that campground again very soon. - garye

This was our first trip in our RV. The owners greeted us upon our arrival and escorted us to our site. Staff stayed with us until we were level and hooked up to the water and electric. There was heavy rain the day we arrived to the point that there was local flooding in some areas. We were still able to walk around the grounds without too much difficulty, athough some sites were waterlogged. Bath houses could use updating. Pool was clean and clear but weather prevented us from using it. Only complaint was a camper came in and reversed parked in the pull through site next to us with their door facing ours. The camp ground could have moved them over a site or two but put them next to us. Prior to departure a honey truck service was provided to empty our tanks. Owners were very friendly and helpful. There were a large amount of seasonal sites at this campground. - dpgllg

This is the worst campground I have ever stayed at. There are only primitive facilities available, and these outhouses are filthy! There are no glass bottles allowed at this park and they will search your car and cooler when you arrive. There is trash all over the sites. The other campers are rude and permitted to do whatever they want. Most did not sleep and partied very loudly all night. Many did not purchase firewood, but chose to tear down branches and knock over saplings in our campsite in the middle of the night. We were not able to sleep at all due to the screaming and loud music. The staff did warn us about the more "wild kids," and we did attempt to camp as far away as possible. It did not matter. Thank goodness they don't allow glass bottles. I would never bring a child to this campground and will never be returning myself. The kind of people that this campground attracts have ruined the nearby and beautiful Nelson Kennedy Ledges State Park. - dneidert

Great place to stay. Staff was helpful. Only thing that would make this place better would be pull through sites for those quick overnight travels on the way to other locations. - krp2nite

Bathrooms are a bit run down, but clean. Grounds are clean and well maintained. Old water works and the indoor pool is removed, but the outdoor pool is renovated and nice. Park staff is excellent. Wifi is poor. - Donulus

Price reflects TRA membership. This is our third year visiting this campground. Three years ago our grandchildren had a ball; indoor & outdoor pool, paddle boats, miniature golf and even a water park. Last year, as reflected in the previous review, everything was gone except the outdoor pool. This year the outdoor pool was closed for repairs there is absolutely nothing for families to do. Needless to say we will not be returning. - TheBounders
