Another very nice OH State Park. Level asphalt sites, but sites are 30Amp electric only. There was a water spigot close to us so we were able to run our hose over to fill up. There are also grey water dumping stations throughout the park. Would've given a 10 had they had water and sewer at the sites. They do have a dump station with hoses provided. They say there is a huge backup on Sunday, even having a sign showing if you are here you have a 30 minute wait. There are 2 lanes for dumping but this is a big park with lots of campers. This is a "resort" park with fishing ponds, swimming lake, also beach right on Lake Erie, lodge with a restaurant, cabins, tennis courts, paved and unpaved hiking and biking trails, even has a golf course. Lots of things to do in the park. We had a weak AT&T and Verizon signal. We were able to get satellite coverage. They do accept Passport America Sun-Wed or offer a 10% veterans discount. They have different rates ($27 for weekdays and $28 for weekends). We'd probably stay again if in the area. - jacknpeg

We love staying here whenever we are in the area. Quiet and very private sites with plenty of grass.
Staff is terrific and always helpful.
Only issue is lack of water and sewer at sites. We just limit our stays to four days and use on board tanks. On holiday weekends the line to dump tanks can be very long, but sraff is there to keep things organized and moving. - Tumblewood

We were here on a Thursday right before Labor Day weekend. Although we were told they were booked solid for the weekend, there was plenty of spaces on Thursday. This is a very nice park and we were glad to find it on our way home from Vermont. It is a little ways off I-90 but worth the trip. The spaces are all very spacious, ours was near a yurt and cabins and they were unoccupied so we had the total area to ourselves. The bike path was nearby and no one else was on it. We biked down to Lake Erie where there is a beach. There is some rugged areas there with rocks and the water looked deep and it was windy. I think children should always be accompanied by adults at this beach. The bike path lines around a few small ponds and some tree-lined areas and is very pleasant. We can't find anything to complain about at this park. - KSum

Friendly staff & nice site. We stayed here on our way from New York to Illinois. Convenient to stay, as it's close to the highway. The dog park is very small and is simply a fenced in yard. Pool is small and somewhat dirty. The grounds were pretty clean and the kamping kabins looked nice. The bathroom, ick. So glad we had our own bathroom in our camper. We had stayed here 4 years ago on our way home from Maine and the same thing. The bathrooms need a deep clean and remodel. They're really gross. - EllenT

We prefer not to stay in KOA, but this one was on our route & convenient to the interstate. They are expensive in most cases & not much to talk about.
Water and electric. Gravel, grass and picnic tables, shaded. Sites were nearby. Pull through. Pool, mini golf (joke), pet run (small), small playground. - jcpjane

Price reflects Value Kard discount with tax. Roads and sites were gravel. We encountered low branches upon entering, and our premium pull thru was not satellite friendly as requested. They permitted us to move to a second site, which was satisfactory. Staff was somewhat cordial, but obviously not going out of their way to be friendly. They were unable to print our receipt due to a lightning strike, but did not manage to get one to us prior to our departure. WiFi was mostly up and down and elusive, so we used our Verizon MiFi. Would stay again in a pinch. - BigRigTravelerUSA

The Wyandot Service Plaza is a very convenient place to spend an overnight when traveling on the Ohio Turnpike. The RV lot is a paved parking lot with pull-through sites and 20/30/50 amp electricity. A dump station and potable water are also available. Cost is $20 in cash at a self pay kiosk. There is some road noise so you may want to run a fan overnight for "white" noise. It is a short walk to the service plaza which has restaurants, a coffee shop, a convenience store and bathrooms. There is also plenty of green space for walking a dog. There are several of these RV travel facilities on the Ohio Turnpike and we have found them to be satisfactory. - JoyceM

Easy overnight place to stop while traveling East on the Turnpike. It's nothing more than a blacktopped parking lot but it does have 50a power which worked fine. The parking lanes are just long enough to handle a 40' rig but you will have to disconnect your tow/towed. There is plenty of room to park a vehicle alongside. There is a dump station if needed. The potable water supply was not useable though - it's a hand pump and I couldn't get suction to start the water flowing. When's the last time you used one of those! Given the amount of traffic that flows in and out of the service plazas and that the camping lot is not secure, we felt a little exposed especially when the door handle on the RV rattled around midnight. Nothing happened and we didn't see anyone around but it did unnerve us a bit. In a pinch, we'd stay at one again. - Born2Roam

This is a parking lot with electric pedestals. It is a nice level lot, well laid out, and has a dump station. The restrooms available are in the main service plaza building. This is a good place for a night of sleep and a good value in our opinion. - Full Timer 2006

Definitely an older park that shows its age in several ways. Most notably, the restrooms, showers and laundry could all use some cleaning and repainting. While they were not dirty when we were there, they were just dingy and old, and were definitely not of the quality we'd expect at the price we were paying. Two dryers were out of order in the laundry. Picnic tables were run down, and the electrical boxes also showed their age, but ours did work fine. The "free wifi" was completely inaccessible at our site that was relatively close to the office; I did not see any repeater antennas in the campground. I could access WiFi if I walked closer to the office. Again, not at all what I would expect for $38 per night. Plus, the charge included $3 extra for a/c, which I probably should not have paid because it ended up being cool that night, and $2 extra for sewer. I would feel more positively about the place if those both were included in the $33 base rate. But at least there is a Good Sam discount. Overall, this place would be fine if the rate were no more than $20 per night. As is, I would definitely try to find more quality for my buck somewhere else. On the positive side, the check-in staff was very friendly. - Edistobob

Oldest campground in the state going back to 1949. Yes, very old, but it fills our needs very well. Lots of shaded sites, superb, clean in ground pool, nice swimming pond with jumbo raft. Not for the rich folks with those mega mansions on wheels. For the poor folks on a limited income like me, it is a perfect place. During the week, pay for 3 nights and get one free. Putt Putt Golf is nice. Old playground, laundry room, game room, mega family use shelter with grill just steps away from pond and good fishing. Many have rated this place as poor; well, this be what I be looking for. Note: where can you spend 4 nights for a hundred bucks. Yes, you get what you pay for, so suck it up since my family of 4 all truly like this place. Oh yeah, good WiFi too. - ALPOE

Password for Wi-Fi given by office did not work. Laundry had 4 washers and 4 dryers. 2 washers and 2 dryers were out of order. Mens shower and restroom was dirty. 2 shower stalls and one was out of order, other stall had no shower head. This campground is by far the worst I have stayed in in the last 42 years of camping. The fact that that they used the picture of the guy standing on the yellow and blue raft says it all about the facility. Look close and you will see the man giving the finger with both hands to photographer. - Matt Hill

We've camped here several times due to proximity to family and friends in Toledo. Note: the campground automatically adds a daily $7.50 "resort fee" on check-in. The fee apparently includes morning pancakes and kid's activities. As a senior, when I questioned the resort fee, I was given the option to opt out. Many sites are satellite-unfriendly, so if that is important to you, be sure to let the host know. WiFi was surprisingly good, but then the campground was mostly empty. I really wish there was a more reasonably priced option close to Toledo. - CO2RV

Right beside the highway so there was road noise. Park mostly empty. Cable and WiFi good. Water pressure good. Abit overpriced, had to pay a $6.00 resort fee on top of the regular rate. Sites close together. - DBSnowbirds

We have stayed at Monroe Co. KOA several times, but only because it is the closest campground to family and friends in Toledo. This KOA, like others we've stayed in is overpriced. The on-line rate was $45, but when we checked in, the clerk said it would be $53. When I inquired about the difference, was told the $8 was a "resort fee." The clerk removed the $8 when I convinced him we were not interested in the "free" pancake breakfast, etc. WiFi was so-so. Also, as with many KOAs most sites are not satellite friendly. We were fortunate to get one that was. We camped here three days, but had to leave Friday as they were solidly booked and we didn't have a reservation. No problem there, but when I inquired if I could just dry-camp over the weekend, the response was "sure -- that will be $41 per night." Needless to say, we packed up and moved our rig to Cabelas, which is quite nice (and free). - CO2RV

The staff owner was great. Had a flat tire he came and inflated and recomended a shop close to fix it. Very quiet campground, will stay there again when in the area. - Holman

30 amp and water only. There is a dump on the way out, but it is on the wrong side of the road. Trees need to be trimmed. We scratched the side of our rig getting into one of their "big rig" sites. 90% of their sites are used for seasonal or long-term people. Most of these rigs are going nowhere, ie: rotted tires, roofs caved in, etc. We will not return. - Joezilla

Very accommodating owners; son & dw-in-law taking over from dad (hopefully). Seasonal, daily or weekly rates: pay for 6, get 7th night free. High water table means you cannot use sewer dump after recent rains: gotta wait a couple days for the septic system to catch up. Very pleasant place, large sites out front, easy access for large rigs. - DonF

My wife and I have going to Harbortown for more than 10 yrs., recommending this park to fellow campers. But we have noticed a change in customer treatment and enforcement of printed rules. We see dogs off leash and site violations which seem to be ignored. On our last visit this month the next site campers returned from a day of fishing and parked their large boat on site and began cleaning fish, even though there is a fish cleaning station available. The office said they would check on this but never did. We went to the office and said we had family coming to visit and felt we shouldn't have to sit next to or smell the boat. The manager said too bad, the boat stays, it's not against the rules. Rule in the printed brochure explicitly said 1 vehicle and 1 camper per site. He was very rude and insulting and boasted that this was "my place" and if we didn't like it we could move on to another place. After we strongly expressed our opinion on the situation, we got a refund, left and went elsewhere. On leaving Harbortown another camper said others also had issues with management. To our surprise the sites at Sterling were larger, cheaper and with very friendly staff. Plus a nice view of Lake Erie. Our family arrived there and a good time was had by all! For a so called business owner (?) he needs to show respect for campers who support his business. We definitely will not return!!! And definitely not worth the $52 we paid per night, plus $4 per visiting guest. We camped in a motorhome. - Br43

The campground is easy enough to get to, but once you're there getting to your site can be unnecessarily complicated. If you're looking to get away from it all and enjoy some quiet family time, this isn't the place for you. Sites are extremely close to one another! We were fortunate to have lovely neighbors, so that part could've been worse. The staff themselves were incredibly rude and unwelcoming. I've seen the reviews that rules were not enforced, but my experience was not the case. The staff ride around in their golf carts barking orders at guests.
The park has a lot of potential under proper management, so it's a shame that it's being run in such a poor way. My family and I will not be returning. For the money you spend here (they charge for EVERY little thing) you could stay in a five star hotel with everything included.
If you're going to stay here, be sure to double and triple confirm your reservation and site. Staff is of the mind that they don't make errors and aren't very accommodating when they do. - JDunlapMH12

We stayed 2 nights at PP America, then full price ($54) the third night. So the average was acceptable, but the $54 price was in my opinion excessive for this park. The sites were a decent size with grass on each side. The pad is extremely narrow and there are trees that a growing up on each side at the entry and exit of the pull through sites. I had to back out as I could not go out forward with the trees in protruding onto the corners of the sites (45' moho).
The wi-fi was horrible. Could get it late at night or very early in the morning. Other than that it was hit and miss whether could connect, as if it did connect it was very slow. Seems like for this kind of money, the wi-fi could be better.
Hookups were good, lots of cable stations to choose from. Was open to receive Dish satellite. Mostly quiet except for an occasional train going by.
The office staff was efficient and very helpful. They recommended a restaurant in Monroe, Public House, which was terrific. - JoeVinnie

Rate reflects weekly. Quiet and clean. Minimal bathrooms (no paper towels) and showers. Sites level but small. Most sites are permanent. Not much to write about. Many trees that will possibly mess up satellite usage. Many residents use golf carts but not excessively. - Bigbyte

Don't be fooled by the beauty of the entrance to the park. Once you are behind the owner's home you will see that this park has not had maintenance in some time. One shower for men and one for women in a park with 200 sites. If you are parked in the electric and water area you have true "outhouses" to use. Majority of campers are here permanently and almost all use gas powered golf carts constantly. It smells like you are parked in a rest stop instead of in the woods. Every weekend night at 9 PM they have a parade with their golf carts, circling the park 2-3 times and blowing their horns all the way! - wilmamc

First impression when entering park is very good. Carryout/deli in office area, driving range and small pond for fishing/swimming. Arriving at our site we were not as impressed. Park is 90% seasonal and the places around us were not cleaned up before they left for season. Beer bottles, and other trash were left beside a tree on our site. Site is a corner lot so was roomy. The park was empty with only a couple seasonal still present. Water pressure is poor, no terrible. They have two pumps but not commercial size. Can't run water in two sinks at once. We used their showers because we couldn't get enough water pressure in ours to get wet. We have stayed in RV resorts with a lot of amenities for the price we paid here. They were told about trash but never came to pick it up. Kept our gray tank closed due to sewer odor. End of season and they haven't had their holding tank cleaned. We will not stay here again. - Pennylee

The campground has mostly seasonal sites. The site we were on was terrible - mostly mud, with a few sprouts of grass here and there, and when it rained, the back of the camper, including the jacks, electrical cord, and water hose, were laying in two inches of water. Good thing I didn't need anything out of the back of the camper around that time. There was another site only a few feet behind our camper, too. It looked like most of the other 'transient' sites were on grass, and I don't think they were full, so I'm not sure how we landed on that lousy site. The only thing I liked about the site was that it was shady.
The roads were in good shape, although navigating to our site was bizarre - we had to drive through the site from the side, then back in. It made sense once we saw it, but when they explained it to us in the office, we were scratching our heads. No major problem with the utilities or their location, other than the rainwater issue I mentioned above. We were in site #51 - on the map it looks parallel to the site behind it, but that's not how we were directed to use it - the front of our camper was facing toward the bathhouse.
The office was also a small grocery store/deli, more than the usual campground store affair. There are two lakes - I think you can swim in one and fish in the other. There was also an auction every Saturday night. We didn't try any of these. The wifi worked fine.
A golf cart hit our camper during our stay, so we talked to a lot more people than usual. Everyone we talked to, including the owners, were as nice and helpful as they could be. The owners got the name, address, and insurance information for us and had it ready when we came back to the campground after a day in Detroit and discovered the damage.
Note, all sites are 50 amp only. If you have a 30 amp camper, you need an adapter. They sell them at the store. - skater

This old campground is way overpriced. Yes, it is clean, but just a money grab. $45 per storage and the only option is to pay from the 1st to the end of the month with no discount for starting in the middle of month. Owner is old, rude, and a money grabber. What a shame she thinks everyone can afford the outrageous fees; sorry that is not for us. Good roads, all utilities work, close spaces, shaded camp sites. Dirt roads, clean restrooms and showers. General store onsite, with beer, wine, liquor and Lotto along with deli and pizza. Dump stations, swimming pool, fishing pond, golf driving range, and shelter for rent. Over priced: charged extra 10 buck's per night for kids and dogs. - ALPOE

Many trees. Office staff are very helpful. Park is gated and completely secure. May be better closer to the office. Rural setting, nothing nearby commercially. No credit cards accepted. No discounts. - SusanRon

I am not really sure where the bad reviews are coming from. We stay here year after year and enjoy each stay. True, the road into the campground and the road in the campground are dirt but are well maintained and potholes are promptly patched with gravel. We saw many places in the campground that had been recently taken care of. The water does have an odor and if you are picky about your water I would bring plenty in. WIFI is said to be available throughout the camp, but we were not able to connect. It definitely needs to be upgraded. That covers any negatives. The staff there is very nice, very helpful and have always been pleasant to us. The beach is sandy and clean. The lake was fine to swim in with a sandy bottom. No evidence of any problems. The kids certainly enjoyed swimming and playing there. The playground was full of kids the whole time we were there, having a wonderful time. The restrooms are kept clean and the showers are some of the best we have experienced. The water pressure could be low if there were a lot of people showering. Cell phone coverage is fine for both AT& T and Verizon. Our site was large, fairly level and well maintained grass. There is a nice mix of shaded and sunny sites. We will definitely stay here again. - Meyer Camping

Awful place. The "crystal clear lake" they mention is horrible. Wouldn't swim in it on a bet. Water supply is contaminated with sulfur, so be sure have bottled water. Dirt/gravel road into campground and throughout. Wi-Fi weak and slow. Convenient overnight stop, but I'd check out other options. - macandphyl
