2 Parks near Ravenna, Ohio
Oct 2015 - $20.00
We camped here for 5 nights right before they closed for the season. It was so quiet and peaceful. Yes, there are lots of seasonals but that is how they make their money. Yes, the transient (over nighters) sites are close together but it was still one of the most enjoyable stays we have had. There is a beautiful lake on the property. During the season it is obvious that they have lots of activities and things to do for families (pool, jump pillow, paddle boats, horse shoes, movies, etc.). We prefer the no kids, relaxed atmosphere which is exactly what we got. The owners are so nice and treated us as friends from the moment we got there. An important thing for DH is that the park is VERY easy to get around in for a big rig (we are 35 feet). All of the transient spots are pull through. The only negative was there are pecan trees over some of the campsites. They are very loud when they fall but after I realized they caused no damage it almost became comical when they fell. The WiFi was very good. TV antennae reception was great. If we were ever coming back this way we would definitely make a point to stay here. - RunAroundSue

We stayed over night in a pull through with FHU. The roads are gravel, narrow, very muddy and not very well maintained. The buildings looked old and lacked maintenance also. I thought it was a little over priced considering the lack of maintenance . There is a nice pond with a gazebo for catch and release fishing. There is snack bar at the far end of the campground which is a hangout for the young people. They were partying but they did obverse quiet hours so no complaint there. The staff was friendly but since we only stayed over night we didn't have much contact with them except for check in which was quick and efficient. Overall, with a little maintenance on the roads and building this could be great park. - Freelander1

We had the pleasure of being a part of the Country Acres Campground Community from the beginning of May through June. We found the staff and owners to be very accommodating, respectful and presented great customer service. The park is kept very clean and chocked full of activities for families. From the Jumping Pillow, Friday Night Kids' Movies, a playground, the pool, gameroom, fishing at the lake, etc... They have plenty for you to do! The lake is just beautiful with a road encompassing it for walking and a nice fishing dock. We caught several fish, saw turtles, a blue heron, lots of woodpeckers and song birds as well as the pet ducks and swan that live on the lake. The owners always greeted us nicely and treated us like family during our stay. The monthly rates are great and very fair as well as the electricity rates for the monthly campers. Our daughter really fell in love with the playground and "Henry" the swan! Their camp store is very cute with everything you forgot to bring on your trip. The owners are great about enforcing the 11pm quiet time rules, so you're actually able to get sleep. And the overall location, close to Newton Falls, Ravenna and even the downtown area of Kent University. We had a wonderful stay and plan on making a trip back, not just for the amenities but to see the owners which we now consider friends! Great place, great people!! - jlgpipe

We stayed 4 nights to see the area based upon the positive reviews for this location. That was a mistake.
The park is far enough from I-76 (Exit 43, SR-14) so there is no noise from the Interstate but if you follow the signs to the park they take you along Rock Spring Rd (SR-183). Rock Spring Rd is in poor condition - narrow, patches over patches. It is better to use SR-14 to SR-5 to Rock Spring Rd. Using that route, you only have to go over a steep railroad crossing overpass just after you turn off SR-5 onto Rock Spring Rd. Yes, there is train noise in the park from these nearby tracks and low flying military cargo aircraft.
Our rating was influenced by how well the park is cared for and condition of the shower/laundry/bathhouses. Had it not been cared for so well and the shower/laundry/bathhouses in such good condition, the rating would have been lower as this is another park that doesn't understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level parking pad!
The interior roads and site parking pads were paved. Only a handful of sites appeared level. The majority had a single or double pitch some of which were significant. Saw one Class C motorhome with about 12" of blocking under one from tire and about 6" of blocking under the other front tire trying to get level. Saw one travel trailer with the rear stabilizing jacks extended completely with about 6" of blocking under the jacks and the tongue hitch right on the ground trying to get level. There is a lot of privacy between the sites due to vegetation and park layout. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50 amp), and multiple sewer connections. The utility connections were about midway down the sites. There was fluctuating water pressure. There was an outside table and fire pit but the layout for the campsites are strange to say the least. Some have the table and fire pit behind the parking pad and others have the table and fire pit on the side opposite the RV's door(s). - bsb814

This state park is close to Akron. The park itself is well maintained, paved sites, full hook ups are available. The sites aren't always very level, however, ours wasn't too bad. Some of the campsite loop roads are very narrow. It is very quiet and orderly. We found it hard to make a reservation thru Reserve America so we called directly without much satisfaction. We took our chances and just rolled up and had the good fortune to get a full hook up site. - rvwanderer13

The limited number of full hookup sites tend to get booked months in advance - not even the campground hosts get one! But forgoing water and sewer isn't much of a hardship with bath houses like these, and it's only $1.25 to wash a load of clothes. Sites are 50 amp and huge. Most are screened by trees and vegetation on three sides, fairly level side-to-side but pretty sloped front-to-back. Narrow (10') asphalt pads, but the roads are plenty wide for backing in (some pull-through sites). It's incredibly quiet at night, and we had an awesome view of the Perseid meteor shower!
Most of the staff were delightful, but one lady in the office ignored us each time we approached the desk and either helped people behind us (who came in several minutes after we did) or disappeared into the back without a word. - Keeping up with the Joneses
