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 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 Showers were outdated, but clean.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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The $30 reflects Camp USA rate. They have dirt roads, angled back ins, but close to Cedar Point. They check-in was not friendly or helpful. Might stay here again. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Motorhome.

I have nothing but good to say about this park. We have camped in many parks around the area and this one is the best. The sites are nice and shady. they have the potential to be a little tight, but when we were there, they made a point of not putting folks on top of each other, and it seemed as if they left some spots vacant just to give everyone more room. The pools and playground were great. The owners were wonderful. We had a camper malfunction that required us to leave our camper on the spot for several days in order to get it repaired. The owners were gracious and worked with us and let us leave it there without charge until the repairs were done. We will definitely return. This campground had everything we needed and is close to Cedar Point, and the Lake Erie Shore activities. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Travel Trailer.

The grounds are clean and very-well shaded, but that also makes maneuvering tricky. The showers were state-park quality (read: bugs) and offered little privacy (only curtain walls) and most dudes don't have wandering eyes so it wasn't a problem, but the girls in my family weren't happy. The sites don't look to be paved or gravel, but I didn't look around too much so I can't speak for the whole place. The highway noise was very noticeable and would be unacceptable for a "destination park" or for tent camping (IMHO). My kids loved the playground and raved about it each time they returned. The sites are very close but not more-so than most commercial parks. The staff was very nice; I got sick and left before our scheduled departure date and was given a refund for our missed days (we did not see the "no refunds" sign until after we asked, but they did so without complaint even though they would have been well within their rights). This would not be a "destination park" but a jumping off point to other destinations so in that function it performs well. We would stay here again. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Travel Trailer.

We stopped here for a couple nights, on our way to MN, and took kids to Cedar Point Amusement Park. We didn't use the showers and bathrooms, so I don't know how they were. It was a nice campground, but sites were very close together. I would stay here for a quick over nighter again, but not a long stay. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Travel Trailer.

We went to Camp Sandusky during the July 4th weekend. Therefore, the rates were a little high. We like the staff and the camp site. They added another pool, but both pools are very small. One benefit of the park is that they have a nice playground for the smaller kids. Also, they offer a pancake breakfast for less than $4.00, we did not get a chance to try the pancakes. The camp ground has two bathrooms/shower buildings. One of the female bathroom/shower buildings had a clogged sink and one backed up toilet. The other bathroom/shower building was more functional, however you had to shower with the natives(spiders & mosquitos). It's possible that because of the holiday weekend, the staff was stretched thin. Overall, i would revisit Camp Sandusky again. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Travel Trailer.

We used this park as an overnight stop. The check in staff was not very well informed. We had requested a cable TV site. We needed to move three times before we had a correct site with cable TV. The site was relatively clean but the grass needed to be cut. The main roads in the park were gravel. The sites are grassy and level and sufficient room between each site. The cable TV was very good but the Wi-Fi was spotty. There are several lovely trees in the park. The pool was closed as it was under repair. The park is very close to the highway so you can hear road noise. We camped at Camp Sandusky in a Motorhome.
