Small, very well kept park. Sites are very long, paved and very wide. Grass is good with young trees. Water pressure is good. You need to check in at the conference center which is a large building Northeast of the RV park. Be advised that pets are allowed in the RV park only, nowhere else on the post. If your dog needs a long walk you will make a lot of circles in the park. We camped at Camp Perry Lodging & Conference Center in a Fifth Wheel.

RV Park is located on Camp Perry base. Every weekend is like the Fourth of July due to firearm range on the base. Expect military drills. There is a nifty arrangement of tanks, helicopters, etc. near the PX. Public rifle range but air rifles only. Pistol range is minimum 50 yards. Sites are 45 feet long and paved. They are all back in. Grassy, well kept, level sites. Shade trees have been planted but they are still pretty young. Power stayed on even in storms. Water pressure decent. Very near Lake Erie and the pier. You must register at the conference center which sits right on the Lake Erie shore. Dogs are permitted ONLY in the campground. Wifi is available only in the conference center but it is very good and free. Sewer connection a little different as there is manhole type cover and there is no pipe style connector, just poke your sewer line down into the hole. We did not leave our sewer connected. We were volunteering for The Biggest Week in American Birding and were housed here for the month of April. During that time we were generally the only campers. We camped at Camp Perry Lodging & Conference Center in a Travel Trailer.

Park is located on the Camp Perry base, but is open to the public. Sites are concrete, level, and extremely long, and each has a picnic tables and fire ring. Power was reliable and water pressure was good, but water was terrible! Sign on water spigot said to let it run for 30 seconds before hooking up and turning on (we did), but it didn't make any difference. We had to change our water filter after we left, and we had just put a new filter in the week before! The water is a brownish color that tastes terrible! I would HIGHLY suggest using bottled water during your stay!

The park is quiet and sits directly on the shores of Lake Erie, but there is no water view from the park. There is, however, a fishing pier with easy access and a short walk from your site. We camped at Camp Perry Lodging & Conference Center in a Motorhome.

We stayed here early May and this was our first visit to this park. During the week we spent here there was only one other RV in the park, which is just fine with us. No dogs are allowed in all of the Camp Perry facility except just in the RV park, which was just fine with us as we get tired of all the barking dogs and dog doodoo in most parks anymore. The showers and restrooms were immaculate, maybe because no one was using them but very nice anyway. The grounds were kept very nice also. Wi-Fi in the Conference center was very good. We would stay again. We camped at Camp Perry Lodging & Conference Center in a Motorhome.

We stayed here four days our granddaughter was shooting air rifles. Nice park. No shade to speak of but had good electric. I would stay here again only if I had someone shooting. While we was there they was experiencing a May Fly hatch of biblical proportions. There were dead flies everywhere. It was impossible to keep them out of our R. Bad smell but it was over about the time we left. Good paved level site. ADMIN NOTE: WiFi is available at the clubhouse We camped at Camp Perry Lodging & Conference Center in a Motorhome.

This park may have been upgraded since the last review. When we got there, the area had just been mowed and trimmed; it looks very nice. The forty asphalt pads looked brand new to us. They're 45 feet long, but only about 8 or 9 feet wide. The bathhouse looks new, as well. The floor is concrete, but aside from that it's large and very well kept. The Wi-Fi worked well. The $29 rate reflects the discount with a military ID. No matches were going on, so there were only 2 to 4 rigs there the whole four days we were there. They do have a lot of ants; take some yard spray. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Camp Perry Lodging & Conference Center in a Motorhome.

This is a nice clean park but it has gone to the dogs. Until last week there was a no pet policy, now its changed. There is no WiFi or swimming pool but the beach is within walking distance. The wife and daughter went wading and got some kind of redish oil on them. Got to see the ROTC in training. (Looked like a nice bunch of younguns, so I think it was Jr. ROTC.) The price is high for what you get, but the cheapest in the area. I was staying here to get some repairs done on the air conditioner. I would come back if needed to, but not by choice.

Camp Perry is the home of the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), along with Ohio National Guard units. Because it is a dual use facility, non-military has access to the facilities for a variety of uses, and it is a great place to stop. The RV park is located about 1/2 mile inland from Lake Erie and has a large, sandy beach. The RV park is new within the past two years. A brand new shower/rest room facility just opened in June 2008 and it is superb. Access to that building is via your key used to unlock your campsite water & electric. Each site is a back in, but the sites are huge and will accommodate the longest RVs. Each site has full water, sewer, electric. There is a small PX located nearby that is quite well supplied. Camp Perry is used extensively for military and Civilian Marksmanship Program shooters, so if the sound of small arms/machine gun fire is not your cup of tea, this place isn't for you. Military barracks are located across the street from the RV park, but the soldiers keep to themselves. The park is immaculate, well maintained, and easy access both in and out. Check in at the Camp Perry Conference Center to get key for your site. The parking lot for the Conference Center has two sides; park your RV in the LEFT side as you enter, and you'll have plenty of room to turn out for the RV park which is about 1/2 mile away from the conference center. GPS coordinates for the RV campground are N41deg 32min 33.15sec/W083deg 00min 58.86 sec W. Conference Center coordinates are N41-32-46.13/W083-00-47.49, readily visible on Google Earth. RV Park is not shown on the Google Earth picture, because the overhead shot is vintage 2002, but it is located at the coordinates given. We camped at Camp Perry Lodging & Conference Center in a Fifth Wheel.
