We stayed here for a week at a pull-through electric only site, C226. It had an asphalt pad and was long enough, but it was the least level site we have ever stayed in. Funny, considering the state park is the flattest in Ohio. It was also difficult to maneuver in and out. We put some ruts in the grass and the ground was very soft from rain. We like the park, but if you want a pull-through, you need to get your reservation in 6 months ahead for a level site. The dump station and potable water were clean and easily accessible. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots to do on the lake and the beach is nice.

Sites are rather close, narrow pad and have little drainage for rain water. Utilities are located in the proper place and worked fine. Grass needed to be cut at the campsites. This is the first Ohio State Park I've been to that needs some overall fixing up. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful setting on Lake Erie. Largest state park campground in Ohio. Nice trails and gorgeous beach. Friendly camp hosts. Sites are not very private and you need to reserve the full hook-up pull -through sites as soon as you can. Very busy on the weekends. Good camp store with sandwiches and ice cream available. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful and clean was my first impression. Very helpful staff. Small walk or drive to the sandy beach. Lots of nice walking trails. Bikes to rent. Three campgrounds....1) no electric, 2) elec no pets 3) elec with pets. Upon arriving they asked us if we needed to fill our holding tank with water and directed us to the fill area. For the size of the campgrounds it was very quiet. Would definitely return. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park, and is fine for a big rig. We got a long pull-through in the "B" loops - were in site B101 and there was plenty of room for our 44' coach and the Jeep. There was 50 amp electric only (no water or sewer) but OUR SATELLITE WORKED, so we were happy campers indeed! AND, as an added bonus, the Ohio State Parks accept Passport America and discount the rate by 50% on weekdays! Fun park with lots of bike trails and nice scenery. Would stay here again, for sure!

Park is on the lake although we did not see any sites that were on the lake or had lake view. Very spacious park-like setting in all the loops. Lots of sites! Paved pull-ins and back-ins. Large park with lots of biking potential and great beach front to play in. Showers and baths very clean. We primarily selected this CG because it was a Passport America campground which is unusual for a state park but found out that we did not read the fine print and the PA discount was not honored on day we were there. Would come back though. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Motorhome.

The Good: Spotless. Great lake access to both Erie swim beach and inlet (calmer boating / fishing waters). Wonderful programs at Nature Center. The Bad. Spots are tiny. I mean miniscule. Grease your rig before pulling in. Volunteers staff check-in and seem unsure. Upon arrival we were told to go to "B" camp area for potable water. Pulling in and out of super tight, highly populated camp area after dark to find the potable water before winding back out to our own site in "C" area. The next morning we would discover on our own that a huge water station was easily accessible in main dump area. I would expect volunteer at check- in to know this, but it's a minor issue. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent state park. Tent camping sites are a bit small, but always entertaining when you have goofy neighbors! Been camping here since I was 12 years old and it is by far my favorite campground in Ohio! Great place. Now if they would just get Wi-Fi and a pool. I'd never leave! We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park if you use it as a location to leave from. Not a typical state park, with beautiful shaded sites. Few trees, very congested everywhere in park. Restrooms and showers were clean, but if you're looking for seclusion in the Ohio Islands Region, don't camp here. Camp here if you want easy access to everything in the area, and love the beach and sun. IE.. bake-your-brains-out sites a-plenty! We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Motorhome.

The $20 reflects Passport America rate. They had very nice sites. However, if you want a full hook-up, book early. They had a nice beach and were close to everything. We would stay here again. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Motorhome.

This was the last stop on our summer road trip and was by far the worst campground. The sites were small and narrow. We felt like we were crammed in like sardines. The campground is not that large and given that they have over 500 sites should paint a clear picture to everyone. People around us had small fires burning all day which left a smokey haze in the air. The beach was dirty and full of trash. My kids did not even want to swim in Lake Erie. It was not at all what I expected from a state park. I would never stay at this campground again. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for Memorial Day Weekend. We went to Cedar Point, which is a 20 minute drive from the park. There has been a lot of rain this spring so most sites were muddy. The mud carried over into the rest rooms which made for a real mess. I think the rest rooms would have been fine if there were not so much mud. They were cleaned throughout the weekend. We rode bikes down to the beach. This is a nice park for bike riding. There is a lot to do in this area. We will return. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Tent Trailer.

What a great state park! All the RV sites were paved and pull throughs. What a great campground to ride your bicycle in; they had a bike path to Lake Erie. What a great campground. The bathrooms were clean, etc. We'll go back anytime. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The campsites are packed together, which was somewhat expected since it is located in a sightseeing area. The sites were so close together that if my neighbor or I had a campfire in the provided rings, we would have caught each others campers on fire. Otherwise the campground and its facilities were clean and in good operating order. Note: Fill up your water tank at the freshwater fill up at the dump station. The spigots throughout the campground are not hose comparable. The beach is another story however. Visit the website: http://www.beachaid-eastharbor.com/ to see the story of what the state did to cause it to be such a disaster. Add to that, the beach facilities were boarded up and falling down, though a park worker said that new facilities are supposed to be built this fall or next spring. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice for a State Park. The beach is really nice, everything is very clean and well maintained. Be specific as to how big your rig is. Bath houses really clean. Some of the sites are really tight for larger rigs. I had no problem. My 24 footer fit nicely on the paved pad, but if it were a big 5th wheel, there would have been no way it would have fit. We camped at East Harbor State Park in a Motorhome.
