We came in on Thurs and left Sun. Picnic table and fire ring on sites, nice space between sites. The only issue we had was the seasonals walk thru our site literally within in inches of where we were sitting on our site. We asked them to walk around and they got snarky. I talked to the office & they said ok. then the manager came over to us and said we swore at them. We did not. Then we had friends over, not extra fee. With the incident of the seasonals not sure we'll be back. You get a full 2 pg paper with rules they say are enforced, they are not. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

An attractive and quiet campground. Entrance is gated with a keycode needed for entrance. From I-90 exit 218, drive 4.2 miles north on Ohio 534 which will take you through Geneva, OH. Signs on the left. Local roads are typical asphalt/concrete with some bumps and jiggles but nothing bad. Nice staff. CG roads are a mix of packed gravel and crushed asphalt, sufficiently wide with some trees lining the route. Turns are gentle; no overhead obstacles. Sites are long and spacious, crushed asphalt with mowed grass between sites. Good for big rigs. FHU-20/30/50. Level with water and electric at the rear and sewer nearer the middle. Picnic tables but no patios. Transient sites have ample sky for satellite antennas. Fires are permitted in fire rings. Firewood at $8 for a big bundle. Low pressure, municipal water with okay taste. Office store has trinkets, souvenirs, some RV supplies. New, clean, modern restrooms with pay showers; $0.25 for 3 minutes (score "A"). Propane sold by the tank; $23/20#, $28/30#. No laundry. Big, super playground, apparently new with something for all ages. Surface is shredded tires. No pool or spa. No cable. Free Wi-Fi which works well. Verizon coverage at 3-bars. Single stream recycling dumpster takes everything except Styrofoam. Fishing lake with a separate swimming lake. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Giant Eagle grocery on route 534. Drive about 10 miles west on US-20 to Madison for Wal-Mart, fast food, auto parts stores. Mentor RV (service, parts) is off I-90 exit 212. Diesel at interstate is $2.349, in Madison it's $2.229. Banks. No major restaurant chains until you get to Mentor, OH. Lowe's and Home Depot in Mentor. North to Geneva-on-the-Lake for mini-golf, Lake Erie access, street-side eateries but don't look for anything fancy and everything starts shutting down in late August.

Overall the park was very nice. Clean, spacious camping sites. Quiet, wooded nice pond. Restrooms and shower house very clean. Self contained so didn't use showers. There were a few problems we encountered. We could not get Wi-fi at all. I see other reviews where the people could. I called office, they could not tell me why or how to get it. TV channels-not good. Got some weird ones. The worst problem was the $5.00 charge for someone to pick us up at our campsite. We did not tow a car so had to walk across the campground to get picked up for dinner. We are in our 70's so it wasn't like we were trying to smuggle other guests in the campground to stay with us. Overall a nice place, but I think if wi-fi is advertised, it should work and the fee for pick-up should be revisited. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is a bit of the hike from I-90 but not so far as to deter you from going. We drive a 45ft MH with a tow and the road to the campground winds through the little town of Geneva and down main street. This part of the road was a bit narrow but it worked out with some care and a little patience. The campground is quite nice as the overnight sites are level and nicely spaced between with some tall and some new trees. Internal roads are gravel and sites seem like a type of crushed asphalt which seemed like a nice surface particularly if it were raining. Utilities are to the middle of the pad and the sewer hook-ups look relatively new. They sit about six inches off the ground so it requires a lift of the hose but they are clean and this was not a problem for us. There are a few low branches through the campground and they have placed rocks along the sides of some of the lanes. We were however able to navigate in and out of the campground without taking off the car. The grounds were nicely manicured and the campground was clean and quiet. The campground store is bare basics. We did not use the rest room facilities but the building looked new and made of stone - probably makes a great storm shelter as well. Wifi was good for the purpose of email and web-surfing. We would return if we were in the area. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are some sites that might make navigating a big rig a little tricky because of tree placement. I asked at the desk for a site "with as few trees as possible" and we were put into site #7. Great site for satellite and tree placement.

Nice wooded park with large spacious sites. Seasonal sites are separated from short term sites. We moved to this park from another park in the area. Much preferred this park. We would stay there again. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful RV park surrounded by farm land. A large area around the sides is taken by seasonals. Travelers like us are put in sites towards the front in a center area - close to the lovely pond. Sites are long and spacious. With many very tall trees - our site was a mix of sun and shade. Good 50 AMP full hookups. Good local TV and good WiFi. Folks are friendly and helpful. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We will definitely return to Willow Lake Campground again. While it might not be quite as private / spacious as the campground at Geneva State Park, it is a very nice campground (great to have water (and sewer) at site, the shower house is much nicer, and Wi-Fi is a bonus). It is situated on 70 wooded acres with two small lakes (a swimming lake and a fishing lake) with several playground areas, basketball court, open grass areas and more. Overnight campers have 70? pull-through spaces with full hookups, 50 amp electric and Wi-Fi for $35 a night. (Weekly, monthly and seasonal rates are also available). The new shower house was large and very clean (water is 25 cents per 3 minutes). The free Wi-Fi Internet speed was 1.87 Mbps. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

The lady in the office was very nice. The sites are really long & you have a nice space between the sites. Each site has a little yard, a table & a fire pit. There is a catch & release lake on the property, as well as a swimming pond/lake & two playgrounds. We probably would've rated this a 10 if it had a laundromat & if the sites had been level & hard-packed. But our site was very unlevel & the gravel/asphalt was soft, so we had problems with our jack pads & getting leveled off. We did not use the restrooms/showers, but it is a new large building, so I'm sure they're good. They are supposed to be getting a laundromat too. Their wifi was very good. We would consider staying here again if they get the sites leveled & firmed up. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

We spent 3 nights here. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Campsites are generally level and spaced enough apart that you don't feel like you are on top of your neighbor. I like that they left some tall trees here when they built the new campsites. The new shower/bath house is probably one of the nicest (and cleanest) that I've seen in a campground. Showers are pay showers, but you get consistent hot water, a good shower head, and ample space to change. Wifi is also the best I've encountered. Even on Saturday night we were able to connect with no issues. AT&T has LTE coverage here as well. Campground is gated with a passcode, and is close to downtown Geneva and Geneva-on-the-Lake. Will definitely return! We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The non-seasonal section is only one year old and very nice. They are still trying to grow grass. Brand new restrooms with pay showers. 25 cents for 3 minutes. Nothing in their material stated pay showers but they were worth it anyway. Campground had a potluck Saturday night which we were invited to many times. Owners supplied hamburgers and hot dogs. Best pot luck I have been to in a long time. 4 piece band played for 3 hours and they were terrific. They advertised walking trails which were muddy and not passable. We had a great time anyway and will return. Very friendly staff. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

What a great park! Nice and clean and FRIENDLY (Geneva State Park ought to hire some help who understand how to relate to the public). Due to a broken and jammed tow dolly ratchet making it impossible to drop our tow car, we were unable to follow our original plan to stay at Geneva State Park, where the surly girl at the office said if we left we could not have our payment refunded. Since my circumstances dictated that we would need a pull-thru site, we were forced to drive away. Located down the road just a few miles, Willow Lake gave us a very nice campsite not too far from the pretty little lake. Didn't use the Wi-Fi so can't comment on that. There is no cable TV, so the 5 PBS stations is all you can pick up. (Wish we traveled enough to warrant getting sat TV). Our kids are grown, but for those with little ones, there is a nice little playground area. The shower house is brand new and very attractive. We would definitely come back here again. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

What a dump! Roads are dirt and full of potholes. No restrooms or showers. Rates are $20 plus $5 for electric & water. Dump station available at additional charge. Office closes at 5 pm sharp. Save your money and stay at a truck stop. We camped at Willow Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
