Park was full of trees which made it difficult to maneuver with a motor home. There is an extra fee for cable. Crop dusters were flying overhead before 7 am. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Motorhome.

We stayed here because all other campgrounds were booked for a last minute visit to Cedar Point. So we went in already thinking this was a place just to park and sleep for the night!

$60/night is expensive for this campground.

Staff is very friendly there and on the phone. They printed my tickets off no questions asked and with a smile.

Pools looked sketchy and green. We didn't use it.

Sites were very very tight!! The charcoal BBQ they provided on each RV site was so close to the adjacent sites that if they used it I was afraid it would burn up my trailer. That's how tight the sites were.

The weekend was insane with people that there was barely any room for cars to park. Even though there were a lot of people the park was generally quiet. Bathrooms and showers are run down and moderately clean.

The bunny farm is more like an uncovered rabbit pen.

Its generally close to Cedar Point. We wouldn't go back. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Travel Trailer.

The office staff couldn't have been any nicer. We changed our reservation once and our site twice, and they just kept smiling! Many trees, if you need satellite TV, ask for sites 12-16. Wifi did not work in site 16. May be better closer to the office. Very convenient to Sandusky and Cedar Point theme park. Mekong Vietnamese restaurant is excellent if you're interested. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Motorhome.

Closest fhu cg I could find to Cedar Point, other than staying at Cedar Point. Lots of road noise if you're outside your coach. Some noise from the Sandusky race track, too. Front desk clerk knowledge/competency depends on who is working the desk. Owner is a very nice guy. This place has a lot of trees. If you have satellite, the trees may cause reception problems and could cause trouble for big rigs. Closest RV parts place seems to be B&B in Milan. Stayed here very early in the season. Tables had not yet been placed at all the sites and the pool was not open. Water pressure was barely adequate at 35 psi. No cable, but it looks like some new sites are being built with cable connections. Lots of antenna stations. Wifi was weak even with so few people in the park. Gravel pads on newly built sites look narrow and very close to adjacent trees. Hot breakfast is offered on wknds. Gas, diesel and McD's right across the street. No fenced dog area. Only saw leashed pets and owners cleaning up after them. Small camp store and some tourist info available. I bet this place is really hopping during the season. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Fifth Wheel.

We needed a campground near Cleveland for a two night stop. We decided on this one as it was right on our way. I felt the campground was expensive for what you get. It was noisy, and had the campground been full with cabin people, it would be a zoo. That bathrooms were block and concrete and not extremely clean.

Water pressure was okay, electric worked fine, we used over the air TV and there were many stations to choose from. Sewer was at the back of the site so we just used the dump station on the way out instead of bothering with 30' of sewer hose.

We were parked on grass but the site was level. They had lots of rain recently so sites and roads were a little torn up. Thye were working to fix that. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Motorhome.

I think the park had just opened for the season when we stayed here in a Class C, because it was nearly deserted. It was clean and the very friendly staff was always around doing some sort of work. The site are gravel and level. We really enjoyed our time here and would come back. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Motorhome.

Very close to Cedar Point Amusement Park. If you have the time, take the ferry over and check out Kelleys Island.

We stayed here 5 nights during the 4th of July holiday. It was crowded but we had no problems with any noisy campers. Even though there were a lot of campers, the restrooms were very clean during our entire stay. Yes, there is some background noise from the highway but for us it served as "white noise" in the background. We also brought our own fan for the cabin. So between the highway noise and the fan we slept soundly at night and could not hear what was going on at any other campsite. Our cabin was spotless also. I did bring bug spray just in case. We also brought an extension cord and 6 prong outlet as there was only one outlet in the cabin. We also brought our own small mini fridge. I recommend bringing all of the above equipment to make your stay enjoyable. The pools were well maintained and while we were there they were installing a new brick walkway and putting in some lovely flower beds. The only negative about the park is that there is an area behind the office, and spilling over into unused sites, of just plan junk! They have old RVs, bits of metal, concrete, etc in a visible area. They could improve the park setting greatly by having a fenced in area of their construction supplies. People do not want to look at that and that is a shame. If they cleaned that area up a bit they would get a higher rating. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Campground Cabin.

We stayed here 4 nights in August. This camp is located within a few miles of the shores of Lake Erie and The Cedar Point amusement park. It is a camp people come to because of what it's near, not for the campground itself. Our $44 back-in lot nightly rate reflects the camp's location, not its amenities. The campground itself is clean, well kept. Spaces are tight together, but I've seen tighter. WiFi reported that it was present with an excellent signal, but connection speed was as always as disappointingly slow as an old dial-up connection. I was able to use my private 4G hotspot without problem. Treed lots made for a pleasant, wooded, atmosphere, but satellite TV was out of the question, and no cable access in the area where we camped. Pull through spots were available at $66 a night, but were no wider than back-in spots, so other than being “pull-through”, and possibly offering cable (?), we could not discern why they were rented at a rate 50% higher than back-ins. A big plus for the campground is it is very socially active, there are gatherings and events for campers to mingle. A big minus is most of those gatherings and events take place in a large central pavilion – but the campground does not have access paths to the pavilion, so campers have no choice but to cut through others' campsites to get to the pavilion. The lots were close together as it was, and it quickly became very annoying to have a constant parade of people walking two feet from my chair on their way through my lot toward the pavilion. Were it not for this, I would have given a higher rating. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrive the morning after it rained most of the night before. It was a muddy mess. Our site had dried out some before we arrived, but still has to use 4 x 4 to keep from spinning the tires on the wet grass. Wi-Fi was so weak at our site it was unusable, cable TV was so-so.

References as the Cabin Capital of Ohio for a reason. Lots of cabins and tent campers, so they really don’t accommodate the big rigs much. They pride themselves on level, grassy, pull-thrus, however, after a very rainy season, their grassy pull-thrus were mud, mud, and more mud. When we encountered about getting some sand or gravel to fill in the major mud puddle we had when setting up, we were basically told it wasn’t going to happen. I understand that now since they were busy turning their grassy sites into gravel. It was very noisy. They have fruit trees between the rigs so very messy and lots of flies. They also are very low if you have a big rig (ours is 37 feet with 3 slides). Just stayed overnight, however, would not stay here again. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second stay at Camp Sandusky; we chose it again because our first stay was adequate for our purposes of going to Cedar Point. I do not think we'll choose it again. The Wi-Fi signal was strong, but the connection was so slow it was absolutely unusable (at various times of the day, not just evenings). Our site was near the shower house which got worse since our last visit. We expected the highway noise, but it was drowned out by drunk tent-campers howling for the Karaoke night in the nearby pavilion. There was a severe storm (probably the same referenced by recent reviews) and the standing water was so bad I had to walk around and take pictures. Travel Trailers had to be removed by a backhoe/front-loader. I understand Mother Nature is beyond their control, but adequate drainage is not. From my observations the camp is run by several older couples, possibly as a retirement investment, and not proactively managed. We actually prefer state parks and are used to bugs and messy shower houses but this was far worse. I'm disappointed because our first stay wasn't great but good enough to come back, but after this last stay I believe we'll look elsewhere. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Travel Trailer.

We arrived after dark and were assigned the first site past the office. The site was next to a falling down Park Model and had an old utility trailer half parked on it. The site was a literal mud hole. Went back to office to tell them and they seemed somewhat surprised, but assigned us to another site. Sites are all grass and swampy due to recent rains, but our new site was solid enough to park on. You could see quite a few sites where campers had buried their trailers in the mud and looked as though they had to be towed out. Sites are very close together and set up at an angle which is not marked, leading to confusion when backing in. Showers were outdated, but clean. There are not walls in the stalls, but a bunch of shower curtains attached to pipes separating stalls. This Campground is definitely not a destination park, but tolerable to stay at to go sightseeing, if weather conditions are dry. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Travel Trailer.

This should be a last resort place to stop. The Wi-Fi was weak to none. The spots are on grass and they are wet when it rains. The office is nice, but that is about all I can say good about the campground. The bathrooms and showers are too far away to be of any use. Think they were placed for the cabin rentals. I would not stay here again. The rate is based on a weeks price. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Travel Trailer.

Overall, very nice campground. All amenities (showers, pools, WiFi, etc.) were in good condition. Shade plentiful. Roads narrow, but manageable. Office staff was fine. Pricing was disconcerting. Highest price on-line: $49. Arrive at CG, it is $66. Humm. So Passport America rate is 1/2 of $66, not $49. "Premium" site did not include cable, so why is it premium? Because it is simply a pull through and can't get satellite? Would still consider returning. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate is a weekly rate. The roads are narrow and in bad condition. The sites are narrow. The laundry is 2 washers and dryers in the pavilion. There seemed to be mostly tents and pop-ups here. Staff was pleasant. They have 2 small pools which are well maintained. Cable is on a limited number of sites. Not satellite friendly. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Fifth Wheel.
