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

Staff is most agreeable and helpful. We got lost and were very late arriving. We called her and she waited for us, led us to our campsite near the restrooms/showers and made sure we were set up before she left. Facilities clean and small lakes inviting. We were very pleased with our stay both nights. We used this as a base for touring the sites in nearby Kirtland. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. The Canadian geese were plentiful and so was their droppings, but by staying in the gravel driveway and walkways we could avoid it. This is really a nice place. - jlp9mm

I stayed here in late April and early May when it was cold and rainy while visiting nearby relatives. I had my choice of campsites, but like a lot of Ohio state parks, this one has a problem with uneven campsite pads. In addition, the asphalt pads are too narrow, especially when it is muddy, with the result that you get wet feet because you have to walk on the grass to get into and out of your RV. (My shoes never dried out.) Another problem is that electric was only 20 amps instead of the 30-50 amps at most other parks, so they really need to upgrade this, as it makes it very hard to use AC. On a positive note, I discovered the upper sites near the water tower. They are a little farther apart and the area up there is more open, making it easier to get satellite, and more importantly, letting the sun dry out the grass a bit. It is also farther from the lake and thus quieter up there. Another benefit of the upper sites is that Verizon data went from 2 to 4 bars, which is important when you work online part-time. The park has added more full-hookup sites, but those are down by the lake and a bit more crowded--still muddy, however. - judy_online

I had a site right on the lake. Cement pad, fire ring, brand new picnic table, full hookup with no issue. Fully shaded. - Givmeabr8k

Very nice small park on fishing Lake; only 5 spaces w/full hookups, all on a pretty good slope down toward the road; many other E sites with different configurations and access to distributed water faucets; good flat hiking trails in park; lots of winter sports opportunities; lovely old mansion serves as a lodge; very nice restaurant; 18 hold golf course. - North Texas DJC

I stayed 3 nights, the gentleman that greeted us was very friendly.
There are so many old dilapidated trailers,campers,machinery and junk at the site it is like sleeping in a junkyard. Our water was one of three hoses off of another hose. There was a dump station, but the road to get to it was so bad I didn't want to drive my 5th wheel on it.
When I was looking for a campground on another app I searched for Thompson Ohio. This one and another came up. They both had four star rating, one was $40 and this one was $25. I got back on the app and showed my wife all the great pictures of the place, she hit the map and it came up Thompson road in Virginia, wrong park. - Lindas Old Man

I spent two and a half months at this park as a seasonal. I set the bar pretty low as to customer satisfaction after talking to the manager. The live on site manager is a good man that works hard trying to keep this park running. He is fighting and unfortunately losing a uphill battle with the owner. Most of the improvements that the manager has attempted to get accomplished working through the owner has failed; most of the roads in the park are only partially gravel covered and are uneven and full of potholes making only higher ground clearance vehicles able to navigate them well. None of the underground waterlines have been repaired, leaving a bunch of garden hoses running over a significant portion of the property. I water hose was one of three, yes a tri-gate. My space was across the road from the single garbage dumpster on the property. It was only emptied after a very stern complaint to the manager. The space that I occupied was level and pretty well graveled, but is was only one of five in the park. When I arrived I was promised that a grey water drain pipe would be installed by the work crew. It never happened. Finally, the WiFi that was provided by a private company that you subscribe to was very good but was shutdown without any notice to the campers because the owner didn't want to pay for a telephone land line any more. He refused to reimburse me for my lost WiFi costs. Lily of the Valley is adequate for overnight camping, but then so is a truck stop. I rated this campground a "3", with the manager earning a "10" and the owner a "1". - DANANDHISBETTERHALFJUDY

This is a small campground, family friendly with a pond where campers can go fishing. Across the street is the Thompson Ledges Park, which is a lovely place that few people know to appreciate. It is not far from Geneva Ohio, there are nearby coffee shops with Wi-Fi access. The campground has a washer and dryer, the owner is friendly and outgoing. We camp there each summer and enjoy the family friendly atmosphere as well as the outgoing staff. It is small, not ritzy or new; but it is a nice, not overpriced campground. Any time I have had issues or concerns the staff there has dealt with them quickly with a smile. - gypsysojourner

We stopped here on an overnight to southern Ohio. It's about a 5 mile drive off I-90. The hosts are very friendly and have a great personality - very fun to chat with. The campground is in excellent shape. Very modern, clean and visually appealing.
Cable TV is going to be installed within the next couple of weeks. Golf cart rentals are available at the office. This is the first park I've seen do this but wished they all did.
The park looks like it has a lot to offer as far as recreation and activities. Very nice fire rings are at every site. Our site was very level and it looks like they all were. There were some nicely shaded sites.
The Wi-Fi we found to be very spotty. We would have to reconnect to a different available network at times and the speed was not all that impressive. Cell service (Verizon) was LTE in some spots and 3G in others. - Cobb_74

We are locals who stayed here during a family crisis. This is the kind of campground I would look for when I travel. The park was clean, the people friendly, the Wi-Fi better than a lot of parks we have stayed in. The park is some distance from I-90 but worth it. If you plan to explore the local Grand River Valley wineries this is a great place to base your exploration. If the park has one drawback it is the gravel road you need to take to reach it. But that isn't the fault of the owners and by using Mosely Rd to get to Ledge Rd you can cut down on the amount of gravel road traveled. - tomboy257

This is a new KOA but the park has been around for several years. It was an easy 4 miles off Hwy 90 although the last mile is a mixed gravel and asphalt but no real big deal - you are in the country!
The park is exceptionally well-maintained with a lovely lake in the center. Everything was spic and span clean and tidy, the on-site owners very nice and helpful. Wifi worked just fine, the site was level - no complaints. Although we just stayed overnight, there seemed to be plenty of amenities for the whole family. Lots of seasonal campers - all who kept their sites is great condition. We'd come back in a heartbeat! - alm

This is a manufactured home park with really nice homes. There are about 8-10 RV sites, all back-ins with water, sewer, and 20/30/50 AMP service. Very clean area!!! Manager was super friendly. For the price, you will not find a nicer, cleaner, more convenient place this close to Cleveland! - dave398rls

We used this park as a stop over from Alabama to Ontario. We stayed two nights. It is off the main interstate highway, but well worth the extra drive. It is convenient to downtown Cleveland. The sites are part of a modular adult community which was well maintained. We were able to walk our dog throughout the community and felt welcomed by the residents. - Debbie2016

Others have described this park perfectly - not a place for campers, but perfect for full timers and travelers looking for a base to stay in while visiting the area. The full hookups worked well, Verizon cell/data were strong, and there were ample over-the-air TV channels. Very difficult to see the satellites due to the trees, but the shade was welcome in the near 90-degree temperatures. The owner and his sister were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Except for the landscaping business next door, the park is quiet, especially during weekends and nights. A great find and even better price, we'll return. - Meanderman

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

Although Kool Lakes Campground wasn't fully operational when we visited at season opening (we'll forgive them for a bad preceding winter), we had a great time. It has some newly renovated restrooms, but also some shabby, in-need-of-repair facilities, as well. The playground and swimming lake were great. Access to Nelson-Kennedy Ledges was awesome, just minutes down the street. Our campsite was spacious and we took advantage of the big ball field across the way. - JPolisena

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

Looked like a beautiful campground. BUT there is no satellite access. No cable TV and you can't get any local TV channels off your antenna.
Also, no Wi-Fi. We would not stay here again. It could be okay for overnight if you don't watch TV or need Wi-Fi.. Could not level even with 6 blocks under our jacks. Even with the blocks our wheels were 4" off the ground. - Micki

We needed an overnight stop. This campground is close to the highway and quiet. We requested a pull through site and were assured they had one 100' long. Our site was long, however, it was definitely NOT level. We were just barely able to get out car into the site without unhooking (which we did not plan on doing just for one night) We were not able to really level our coach, but managed and were very glad to be staying one night. Almost all of this campground is seasonal sites. - Sojourner1986

Beautiful park in quiet location, convenient to I-90 and Lake Erie. Well landscaped and very clean. Mostly seasonal spaces. Short-term spaces are all pull-through but not at all level front to back and some have trees to negotiate. We parked towards the back of our space and did okay. No antenna-tv reception. Must pay for wifi - $3/1 day, $5/2 days, etc. Also must pay to use AC. They do not allow electric heaters at all so beware in cool weather. The very long list of "DO NOTS" plus no tv and extra charges for wifi and AC irritated us so much we will look for another campground if back in the area. - all4pets
