The park borders Lake Erie, so it is a beautiful setting. The pads are paved and very long but very basic. There is no screening between spots, but they are far enough apart that it still feels private. However, there are a lot of beach day use people in addition to campers. Dogs are allowed on leash on the paved walkway, but not on the beach. There is a park day use fee of $15 in addition to the campground fee, even if you arrive late in the day. - Dapper

The RV park is located on a beautiful Lake Erie island. Many of the sites have a view of the lake and the sandy beach. The sites are large, many pull through and very long. There are not many trees though many have been planted. The island was created with fill provided by a two million dollar grant.
Various types of sites are available; 30 amp, 50 amp, 0 amp, water or not, sewer, or not, and back in and pull through.
The location is convenient to shopping, museums, Detroit and Toledo.
They are family friendly here, watch for children playing.
This park is high on my list of desirable places.
The only caveat is it is run by the government with all that implies including an awkward reservation system. Reservation can not be made on site. You have to call people who are not there and that caused us an inconvenience. Be sure to ask what hookups are available on the site you are reserving. They will put you on a site with no hookups without telling you. - The Penguin

Great place to stay. Very family oriented - lots of kids riding their bikes, at the water, and having a good time. Parents were good about keep kids quiet after curfew. Beautiful access to the beach. Nice folks staff the offices. My gripe is an additional daily fee of $9. This should be incorporated into the advertised fee. Once you add that to the reservation fee - it gets expensive. However, I would return here cause it is so nice. - LFClary

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 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

All campsites back-up to wild areas and most have privacy between sites. Area well maintained with miles of paved rec. trails to gain access to long Lake Erie sandy beach, swimming lake, wildlife center etc. We were here during the annual mayfly hatch in early June. The flies were everywhere in great abundance but were harmless. The redwing blackbirds were well fed by the unavoidable largess. - Appleknocker

Very large park, but broken into many sections, so it doesn't seem like a huge campground. Everything is very well manicured. There aren't a lot of trees, but they have big shrubs planted in between most of the sites, affording a lot of privacy. Nice bike trails, and lots of roads to ride on as well. No water at site, but potable water available at dump station. The campground legend shows water available in the camping areas as well, but you cannot hook up a hose to those. A decent value at the Passport America rate, which is available Sun-Wed. No wifi, but good Verizon signal. Not that easy to get to. - KAP99

This is part of a whopping huge recreation area but loops are well separated so it does not feel confined at all. Sites are nicely separated. We got our 36' plus truck in. No problem & saw plenty other sites that could accommodate us. Water no problem when you have 100gal tank but can see it as an issue for small tanks & many people. Biggest issue for us was signage to find the place. A frequent complaint that we have with CGs. No problem once you know. - Veebyes

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

Family friendly environment with wonderfully helpful staff. There were fun events for the kids and it was just a relaxing vacation in general. Sites are spacious enough too. I highly recommend this campground for a getaway with the family. - JDunlapMH12

We stayed here about 3 years ago, and many improvements have been made. The sites are level and very large. The new dog park was great for our two large Labs. I would highly recommend this park. - epoux

The owner was very accommodating. We arrived after 5:00 and she came to our site to check us in. We stayed one night so the pull-through site was perfect. The people who camp there are so friendly and my kids loved fishing there. I highly recommend this park. The only downside I have to say is that it was not full hookup. Other than that it was a wonderful place to stay. - SoniaR

Great little park that surrounds a lake. Close to I-75 and a nice place with layover for a night or two. We are a big rig and the pull through was adequate with a nice picnic table and fire ring. Unfortunately it was raining the entire day/night we were there so we didn't get to use them. The only downside to this park is that there is no sewers, only water and electric. Being full-timers, we like a full hook up when we can get it. But, the park was quiet, clean, and easy to get in and out of. Lots of nice little places nearby to visit and very close to BGSU. We will definitely put this place on our list of good parks to layover at. So glad we found it. It was a great value with the Passport America discount. - LovinFT

I was pleasantly surprised at Fire Lake. I had read that there are mostly seasonal sites, but they have added a lot of overnite spots with water and electric. The lake was beautiful and there were lots of things going on for the kids. The owners have a nice covered picnic area and a new basketball spot. Everything was neat and we would definitely recommend staying there. - Ginny H

This Park is now Seasonals only. No nightly, weekly, or monthly. - DoggieDaddy

We stopped here for one night and ended up staying for three. Extremely nice hosts, and a very well kept park. While not near some of the major restaurants there was an Applebes, and Bob Evans fairly near by. A great bakery is in downtown Gibsonburg too. If you want a quiet leisurely place to stay this is it. Water pressure and electric was very good, and the sites reasonably level with a good distance between campers. We would have rated it higher if they would have had a laundromat and Wi-Fi. - buckeye1268

Used as overnight stop only - fairly long drive from I-80. To get into park you have to navigate around low overhanging and decorative boulders on the road edges and corners. Pull through sites only available for overnight stays, $30 for 30 amp, extra $5 for 50 amp. Note: pull through sites are better set up for truck towing 5th wheel or trailer, rather than motorhome towing a vehicle due to the placement of the hookups. Fire pits are positioned mid way on the site, not front or rear, so no air flow between sites. No security on site after hours, or anyone to contact. I would not go back. - annmarieh

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

Decent park with a nice sandy beach and pond. Couldn't access Wi-fi despite being only a short distance from the office. They do let outsiders in for swimming and gatherings. Gravel roads, but not much trouble maneuvering. Camp store offers some basic items. We'll probably stay here again. - WoodedOne

Stayed 2 days in a 5th wheel, was a decent park to stay in while visiting friends. Park owners/hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Site was very nice although was just grass....but nice thick grass. We will definitely stay here again.... - steelpony

First of all - this campground has something many campgrounds lack - it has a soul! You feel very welcome from the first minute you check in and until you leave. Owners present (they live at the CG) and are helping all the time. Most of the sites are seasonal and this campground really changed my earlier a bit negative view of the guests who stay long. Seasonal here are exceptionally friendly and comes by to say hi and share some tips of local restaurants, places worth seeing etc. Campground is easy to find, sign easy to see, you get a gate card so you can get inside 24/7. Sewer for grey water and 50AMP electric. We were there during Labour Day and were lucky to get a site since one person cancelled late. In the center there is a lake divided in to a fishing zone and one for swimming. Took a swim almost every night to cool down and it was really clean and very well kept. Laundry worked fine and toilets were simple but clean. We camped in our Fifth Wheel and are full timers so did not use the facilities very often. The wireless internet is the best we have encountered so far. A steady 5-10mb/s and a customer service Best in Class. The even gave us some extra hours at the day we left for free. They do charge a buck or two per day but that is ok since the speed was fantastic. I rather pay a small fee and KNOW it works then to get to a CG with lousy free WiFi that comes and goes. Cosy place and highly recommended, again - hardware is important like electricity etc. but software is actually a factor worth competing with as well. They had a small store with great prices and we filled propane as well. Fireplaces at every site. Lots of trees and shade not perfect for satellite dishes but we did not have time to watch TV, nice to socialize with all the great people instead. At labour Day they had MooseHunt for the kids and some other activities. Very family friendly. Price here was low (hope the owner does not read this review!) even given the fact that electricity and internet was extra. Lots to see in Toledo as well so the two weeks we stayed went VERY fast. We will for sure come back hopefully already in the spring. - BasilFawlty

Positives: There is easy access off turnpike. The office staff is extremely helpful. It is owner operated, and he too was very helpful. Negatives. No sewer hookup in the pull through site we had, but there was a drain that we could run a hose and drain grey water. It was not a big deal, because we only stayed one night here. There was no cable, and it is heavily treed, so satellite wouldn't work. There appeared to be a significant number of seasonal sites. Inner roads fairly tight for my 40' MH, but we did get into one of their four pull-through sites without much problem. Again, owner and staff are friendly and their helpful manner made up for anything lacking in the campground. - teofff
