Extremely gorgeous campground. Very scenic and love the rustic lodge and cabin buildings. The layout of the park is very picturesque with the trees and lakes. We travel all over and this is the most attractive clean park we have been to. The sites are not paved, but it's a campground and it is well kept. We enjoyed our stay and will return again. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

American Wilderness Campground has wonderful weekend activities for both children and adults. The staff are friendly and courteous and helpful. The facilities are kept clean at all times. They also have a fishing lake and swimming lake. I highly recommend this campground to anyone. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is like being in the woods fairly close to Cleveland with a few hundred other people. The grounds here are nice. We had good 50amp and water. No sewer sites in this park. There is one road with one lane going into and out of this park. Best to hook up your tow before using it. WiFi is terrible. Verizon is terrible. Bring books. Forget getting a sat dish to work unless in some of the sites without trees over you. This park is quite crowded in the summer. We stay here because it is the closest decent RV park to our family. If I had good other choices I would likely take them. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Not big rig friendly for a 40 ft motorhome. Hard to get into spot due to the Railroad ties and the new landscaping. Equally tight upon leaving due to trees. Charged $6. / per dog? We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

This RV camp has both Good Sam and Passport America. It is very pretty to look at, but the sites were not level, there was no sewer at the sites, the power was faulty at our site and kept on going off. We couldn't get any TV nor could we get Dish. We did; however, hear gun shots while we were there. The laundry room was very dirty and there was pet hair in one of the dryers. We couldn't get internet at our site. It was impossibly tight getting out of our site as the corner was very sharp and the roads were narrow. We had to back out and then try to get turned around. We won't be back. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

After reading the other reviews we almost didn't stay here but are now glad we did. I think the price is too high ($42 before discount) for not being a full hook up. The swimming pond and children's activities were very nice and would keep the little ones busy. With all the trees, it was really like being in the wilderness! This also helped with not being in full view of all your neighbors. The trees weren't low hanging to hit the RV. It is quiet and very pretty. I also wish they would expand the front entrance as it is one lane, but that didn't cause us any trouble. We had a generous pull thru for our 42" RV with truck in tow. We will go back.

Anything the shop sells for water play may be used in the pond. May places don't allow you to do that.

Our camp site was small. The Wi-Fi service did not work for us at all (we tried several times throughout the night). We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflexes one night of Passport America, the normal rate is 39 per night. The campground has a very nice appearance but disappointing once in the camping areas. They have a lot of add on charges like for lake sites and extra charge for pull through, I told them we were ok with a back in site and was advised that we would not fit with our 40 Foot coach, but when seeing the back in sites it would not have been a problem so we felt a bit misled. Water and electric was fine but there is no sewer on any of the sites only one dump location at the front of the campground, our site was not anywhere near level and even though dry days before it was very wet and muddy around the site. The restrooms in the campground area were hideous pit toilets with a lot of little bugs everywhere in there. We will avoid this place in the future. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a long, level, gravel, pull through site. It was 50 amp with water. Part of the site was very wet, even though there had been no recent rain. Everything worked fine except the wifi. There are wifi antennas throughout the park but it was very poor most of the time and completely unusable at our site. We had to rely on our Verizon and that was a solid 3G and marginal 4G. We were in the wooded section. The bathrooms and showers at the office looked clean and well maintained, although we did not use them. They were far from our site and would require driving. Our biggest complaint is that it is very over priced. Our $29 rate reflects a Passport America 50% discount for one of our 2 nights. The normal rate for a site with water and electric and without a sewer connection is $39! There are no sewer connections at any site. They have a single dump site on the way out. We had to wait in line. We will not stay again at those extremely high rates. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed two nights. Friday and Saturday, check in was long site was graveled and muddy. We stayed here because of closeness of family. Friday was a nice quite day and night. Saturday when all the permanents are on site not so much. We were given a pavilion site and we were told that there was a poker run that night if we wanted to participate. We choose not to, we were never told and we even inquired if there was anything scheduled for the pavilion as we an older dog and she is only learning to camp. We were told nothing scheduled there. Well about 8:30 people started to arrived by 9:00 we had people and golf carts coming right through our site. (which violates there own published rules.) The permanent campers were not considerate at all to us being there as they tramped through stating well so much for your quite time. The operator of the campground came over to see if we were upset. We advised her she should have forewarned us she said next time they would put us some where else. There will not be a next time. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The campground grounds are well maintained, but the restrooms are pit toilet (out houses). We were told when booking we would be near the restroom area if we wished to use them, due to not having sewage, but they did not explain they were outhouses. The deal breaker was my family who we traveled to see came in to visit us . They charged $6.00 per person to enter campgrounds, and no exceptions. It cost us $30.00 per day for my family to visit us while we stayed at the campground. The excuse was they would use the facility activities. It's was October and everything in the campground was closed except the game room, and not very many 55 plus people usually use those. Just can not recommend this campground, and would not return there. Cannot understand why Good Sam recommends them; they just missed up on this one.

Park is off of main road, but no highway noise and a train goes by once a day. Roads and sites are gravel with grass between. Many trees so it's hard to get satellite. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. Dump station and garbage is far from site. It's high priced for no sewer. We will probably look elsewhere next time. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.
