21 Parks near Huron, Ohio

This is a huge park that is almost all full timers in house trailers, travel trailers, etc. Many are boaters with docks at the sites. There are a few primitive sites and trailer sites for nightly use. If you are stuck, during the week is acceptable. Small sites, no privacy and little vegetation. The power went out constantly and it was in the 90s; so that caused a lot of concern being gone during the day with a fridge full of food and a pet in the trailer. The staff is exceptional, very friendly, professional and helpful. If it is a weekend, opt for the rest stop on 90 as a more enjoyable one night stay. My last night was a Friday. The site behind me (since they are so small, on my site too) had about 40 people drinking, cussing, and playing corn hole. Also a lot of really bad country rock Karaoke. Folks constantly walked directly through your site to get to where they are going, in addition to unsupervised children . Really about the worst camper etiquette and management oversight situation I have encountered in 45 years of camping. Considering the size of the park, they really need to have some type of night supervision on site to keep things in check. - Robi

It is a seasonal campground. Only 4 pull thru sites. Bath house marginal and right next to very smelly dump station. It was quiet (no one there) but nothing else good to say about it. - Ascolo

We were in town for a lacrosse tournament and this was minutes from the fields and Cedar Point. There is a small store and a clean laundry room at the entrance. When you first drive in there are many permanent sites but most are well maintained and everyone we met was very friendly. The sites are level and have more room than many campgrounds we've been to. Although we didn't use the actual restrooms the showers are separate and could definitely use some updating. There is a nice playground for kids, kayaks and canoes to rent, and activities run by the campground. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. - coldwaterconch

Pay the tolls and stop at the Milan Travel Parking Milan Ohio because it had good ratings according to Good Sam. Well, after paying $40 in tolls we were met by a surly woman who never even bothered to tell us that the bath house was closed and that the only restrooms were the ones behind the office. The WiFi is the Worst we have encountered anywhere. I ended up using my phone. The place is filthy and run down. The toilet stall doors are falling off and there was a spider web the size of a trash can in the men's room. The only men's room available in this large park is the one behind the office and it looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a month. And even with the Good Sam discount it came to $40. Had I seen how bad it was before I paid, I would have dry camped in a parking lot some place. - Chuckstr89134

We stayed two nights here. We were going to Cedar Point which is only 5 minutes away. Camp grounds were nice, lots of activities for the kids. We were there on weekdays so it wasn't too crowded. If you were there during a busy time it would feel crowded for sure. They allow 24 hour check in, which may be typical, however our first night there people checked in at 12:30am and proceeded to noisily set up their camp until after 2am. We have never experienced people setting up camp in the middle of the night right next to us. The campground was probably 25% full so they could have placed these late arrivers somewhere not near people who were trying to sleep. - Walther Fam

This is a relatively big busy park in the summer. Most use this as a base for Cedar Point. There is allot to offer..but you are parked close together. There is a permanent section, that looks to be run down. Unfortunately, because of the size of my 45 foot RV, I had to park facing the permanent section. - sse

Camp sites were very narrow. There were a couple loose dogs on the grounds that were breeds not allowed at KOA campgrounds. Many campers were loud, and did not clean up cans, bottles and other garbage on their sites.
Managment was notified, but was unresponsive. - epoux

A 1st class campground that puts you right next to the theme park. Excellent bathrooms and showers. Good Wi-Fi and cable. Shuttle service to park could be a little better based on crowds. Privacy at camp site that are spaced just right. Only downfalls is the customer service could be better and somehow controlling the birds and spiders that seems to be everywhere and sites. Recommend this campground for anyone going to the theme park. - Biggyrat

Pros: Proximity to Cedar Point. Shuttle Service allowed us to not have to disconnect from the tow vehicle. Level sites with cement pads, full hook up.
Cons: Price. Sites are a bit narrow. Pool was too dirty to swim in, and the BBQ grill was never emptied of coals.
Note: The sewer connection had a screw inside the pipe, which prevented our sewer hose from being able to make a tight connection.
Overall, it is a nice park and we will return. We felt the high cost was worth paying for the convenience of being on site. We were unable to fully extend our awning due to the placement of arborvitae hedge around the patio area, but we were able to get the slide outs extended. - Pioneer24

Very nice site, early entry into park. Park was having water issues (not park's fault). Pull through sites are very long with great shade. - KCook3

We stayed here because all other campgrounds were booked for a last minute visit to Cedar Point. So we went in already thinking this was a place just to park and sleep for the night!
$60/night is expensive for this campground.
Staff is very friendly there and on the phone. They printed my tickets off no questions asked and with a smile.
Pools looked sketchy and green. We didn't use it.
Sites were very very tight!! The charcoal BBQ they provided on each RV site was so close to the adjacent sites that if they used it I was afraid it would burn up my trailer. That's how tight the sites were.
The weekend was insane with people that there was barely any room for cars to park. Even though there were a lot of people the park was generally quiet. Bathrooms and showers are run down and moderately clean.
The bunny farm is more like an uncovered rabbit pen.
Its generally close to Cedar Point. We wouldn't go back. - Gabriela

Park was full of trees which made it difficult to maneuver with a motor home. There is an extra fee for cable. Crop dusters were flying overhead before 7 am. - Meme508

The office staff couldn't have been any nicer. We changed our reservation once and our site twice, and they just kept smiling! Many trees, if you need satellite TV, ask for sites 12-16. Wifi did not work in site 16. May be better closer to the office. Very convenient to Sandusky and Cedar Point theme park. Mekong Vietnamese restaurant is excellent if you're interested. - SusanRon

We stayed at this park over labor day weekend. The park was full as most parks are on the last weekend of summer. The restrooms were clean when we arrived, but as the weekend rolled along, they became less satisfactory. The park itself is made up of mostly permanant tenants. The permanant RV's are all well cared for as well as the grounds. It is a quiet, well run park, with alot of river sites. It sits in a great area, only a few miles from Lake Erie beaches and views. Vermillion is a quaint charming town. If Cedar Point is a day trip, it is certainly close enough. I think this parks' previous reviews are not accurate or fair. We plan on returning. - di and chuck

Campground is not suited for motorhomes. Sharp turns. No sewers. Management seemed to think we were a bother. Did not get site promised. - Mr. B

Bath house dirty, smelly and dark. Paper toweling all over the floor. Not clean, period. One shower (pay) out of 3 worked, and the water never even got warm. Drain very slow and had to stand in 2" of standing water throughout shower. Yech! Would not recommend this park, nor return. - hondaaero

We were seasonal for 2 years. Managers were glad to see you when your bill was due, but did little to solve issues with your campsite. The owner might have said 5 sentences to us in two years. If you don't mind dust storms when it is dry or mud puddles when it rains, I guess the roads are bearable until the gravel washes out of the craters. When it is hot and everyone uses their AC, we were lucky to get 95 volts to our trailer, but on a cool day we were doing good at 105 volts. After a while you get used to the smell of raw sewage. The pool was so chlorinated you could smell it 50 ft away from the building and it was enclosed. I met some great people here and when they left, so did I. If the owner cared about this place it has some potential.
Lot spacing is very close with sunny/open exposure. Site surface is gravel, featuring a fire ring. - Harry Donehoo

Large level gravel sites. Friendly staff. Great indoor pool. We stayed three nights and it was quiet. WiFi only at office. The only down side is low water pressure. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this campsite. Verizon Cell and data was excellent. Easy satellite. - roybrody

We have camped in Timber Ridge campground for 5 nights. They have friendly staff, nice indoor pool,breakfast and dinner gatherings. Full hookups are are available with 50 amp service. There is a playground and fishing pond. Our complaint about this campground is the dust. I would describe it as a dust bowl. Roads are gravel and whenever cars, trucks, or golf carts go by our unit clouds of dust are created. I have camped in other gravel road camps where you do get some dust but nothing like this. My red jeep is totally white. Owner needs to use some dust control product or pave main road. Some yahoo unloaded a large tractor from his pickup to cut grass around his trailer. With the blade engaged he ran it on the road and created what I would call an atomics cloud of dust. Fortunately his wife came out waving her arms and I can only surmise she gave him common sense lecture. This could be a really nice park if they fix the roads. - PinkPanther01

The campground is located adjacent to and behind a somewhat run-down looking motel. Most of the RV sites close to the entrance appeared to be seasonals. For our one night stay we were escorted by golf cart around some pretty tight corners and trees for our 35' rig to an area well away from the road behind the motel. This looked to be a recently cleared area of about 8 sites for the shorter stays. The full hook-up utilities appeared new and in good shape. That was until we plugged in our electric cord to the pedestal and our voltage monitor showed that there was no ground connection. I called the front office and they sent someone out to check the wiring. Once the pedestal was opened I could see that the ground wires from the 30-amp outlets were connected to the electrical box but the box was not grounded to anything! I explained that this was a safety issue and did not meet electric code but the employee insisted because nobody else had complained that it was not a problem. I called the front office and spoke to who I believe was the owner. He insisted the electric hook-up met code and that the problem was with our RV. I explained that without a proper ground, if anything in our rig shorted out, or the rig that shared our electric pedestal, that our whole RV would become electrified. After getting nowhere I requested a refund and was told "there are no campground refunds". At that point I told him that we were pulling out rather than risk being electrocuted. I also told him I was going to dispute the charge on my credit card and report the issue to the local building inspector. At this point he began yelling at and threatening me. I did speak to the inspector after they had a chance to investigate the problem. It is my understanding that the electrical hook-ups did not meet code and that the work had been done without the required permits and inspections. He also stated the campground was now working to correct the problem. In the end I came to appreciate my voltage monitor and the other campground personnel I've dealt with that still understand customer service. Unfortunately this is severely lacking at Surf Motel. - MI-Dave

First and foremost, use website directions or call. Both my GPS's were wrong. Parked on grass so if raining, use discretion. Nice park but no sewer at site. A little tight for a 40 foot MH with a tow vehicle, but you can do it. We just did an overnight here....wifi as fair and direct tv good. - Djb

We stayed 5 nights for our annual anniversary get away, so we could drive to several Lake Erie outings half hour away. This is a very pretty family campground, well run with very friendly owners and staff. While the sites are all grassy, they are very level and many sites give ample shade, as ours did, particularly in the afternoon when it is needed in hot weather. The pool is immaculately clean. The office is large with a nice selection of items for sale and is connected to a very large recreation/game room. There's a catch and release fishing pond away from the campsites but on beautiful open-spaced land surrounded by trees. They provide sewer pump-out 2x a week + have a dump station since no sewer hook-ups. The one and only reason this is not a 10 star review is because of the very limited Wi-fi provided. There are no routers within the park so the hot spot is at the office and rec.center. Only e-mail and news reading are available, no downloading or streaming of any kind. I could not even look up information from a Google search nor be on Facebook, but it was MY choice not to use my phone data since I'm not addicted to phone & computer use, LOL. The camp name suited us perfectly: Gotta Getaway for us to reconnect with solitude. This campground provided it, with the exception of a train whistle each morning around 8 a.m. We would definitely camp here again. - Mumer

We camped here for 5 days over the Labor Day weekend.
The good: All mowed up and no trash lying around. Office/store area new, with large recreational hall, laundry, restrooms (no showers). Large pool with a pavilion adjacent. A catch and release fishing pond. A large pavilion next to a very large grass area. By the pool there are three newer individual shower/toilet/sink rooms with their own doors. One was out of service. A large modern playground. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. One section of the campground is mainly seasonals. This campground changed owners 3 seasons ago. New owners have been working on making improvements. The owners had numerous activities for the campers and their children on each day of the weekend, plus bands Saturday and Sunday.
The not so good: All sites are grass, with shared electric/water pedestals (2 units per) and a picnic table & fire ring for each site. No sewer hookups, Just one dump station. The sites are considered pull-thrus, but you have to driving across the lawn to get onto your site. 28 campers and RV's were stacked together like sardines. Two rows, back to back, with each rig offset by the space for picnic table and fire ring. There was an old shower house near our area. It had 2 shower stalls for men and 2 shower stalls for women, along with toilet stalls. Wifi was basically useless. It couldn't handle email that contained photos or graphics. Forget about checking your Facebook account. It was a hot weekend, upper 90's. On Saturday our main section lost power, and it was not restored for the rest of the weekend. A reported power panel melt down. Because we were booked until Wednesday, the owners moved us to a vacant seasonal site that had power. An "A" for effort to the owners. We will probably not camp here again, since we like full hookup sites, and more space between us and our camping neighbors. And the security of knowing that the campground power will not go out on hot summer days. - BobbyH

It is an expensive campground, plus you have to pay a gate pass for yourself and auto if camping during the 10 week Chautauqua season in the summer. But, it is worth it to be in Lakeside which is a truly wonderful place. Sites along the back fence are far away from the sewer so I had to use a coupling device to stretch my sewer hose. To use Wi-Fi I had to go to a picnic table near the center of the campground. 50 sites are for permanent residents, 34 for transient visitors. Sites are rather small and not very level. - rvrose
