We were traveling to MI and needed place to spend the night. We saw this campground and decided to try it. The campground was 30 mins off of 80. It's a small, cute campground which has tents, 5th wheels, cabins and large RVs. The owners bought this campground 2 years ago and have made it a cute place for families to stay. We called and emailed the office for a reservation. We had no problems driving through park, level spot, full hook up. We'd definitely come back. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Motorhome.

This park was clean & well maintained. Nice game room for the kids. If the park would have been fully booked, the sites would have been too close together and difficult to back into. However, when we were there, it was only about half full, and the owners did a good job of spacing each RV away from being too close to a neighbor. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We were greeted by friendly owners who are also the groundskeepers. It is an older campground that is being revitalized. Lots of shade in the FHU area, but makes the maneuvering a challenge in a 45' coach. Roads and sites are gravel, plenty long and grass everywhere else. The sewer connection is near the front, all other utilities were convenient. Shore power, water, WiFi, cable were up to specs. There is a large grassy area (W/E & tent) for strolling around. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Motorhome.
Nice folks run this place. Roads passable but tight. Makes back-in sites tough to get into with a bigger rig. Bathrooms/showers were older but clean and in good order. Luckily we were not there at a busy time as the sites were very tight for our rig. Water hookups for every other site on the wrong side. Fine for an overnight stay, which is just what we did. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice park. Sites have enough elbow room and lots of shade. Utilities worked well, including WiFi which was better than average. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Travel Trailer.
This is definitely a place we will return to. The owners bought it one year ago and you can tell have made significant improvements. Very shady sites with grass. Extremely friendly owners always driving around checking to make sure we are satisfied. Relatively quiet during the day and evening because most are at Cedar Point Amusement Park. Would give it a "10" if they had a pool. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Motorhome.
We had a pleasant stay at Crystal Rock. We were greeted by a friendly staff, and were placed in the exact site that we were told upon reservation. The campground is easy to access, and convenient to the city of Sandusky as well as Lake Erie's western basin. The facilities are clean and well kept, and the owners are relatively new. Previously, the camp had been allowed to degrade some, and the current owners are doing a good job in bringing it back to life. We would most certainly stay here again. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Motorhome.
We stayed here 3 nights. This park was just bought by a retired couple (well they were retired ;), earlier this Summer and they are working hard to renovate an old campground that needs a lot of work. Give it a year or 2 and this will be a 9 or 10 if they keep working on it like they have been. Already, they have added a nice game room with pool table, ping pong, and games. They have weekly events including a Sunday Breakfast and Saturday Corn Roast - both yummy! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient to Sandusky and the Islands, but is quiet! We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one month. This is an old campground that needs a lot of renovation. The pull-thrus are very close to each other with tight turns on the gravel roadways. The electric service delivered about 108 to 110 volts during heavy air conditioner use. The "game-room" is a couple of machines in the office. The website ad is misleading. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We appreciated receiving packages and mail during our one month stay. The location is very convenient to the Erie Island area attractions, while still being remote enough to be considered camping. Caution - bring LOTS of ant pesticide. Our site was loaded with ants and mounds. We would stay here again but only for a night, not one month. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Crystal Rock is a well run campground in a great location far enough away to get out of the hustle and bustle, but close enough to many attractions to be convenient. Sites are a good size, mostly grassy, and divided between partly sunny to shaded. It rained quite a bit during our stay and the campground seemed to drain well with no sites retaining excess water or runoff. The restroom and shower house on the north side is a short walk from any site. The facilities were clean and completely functional. One of the things I liked is a community camp fire which it seems goes on every night. A few nights that I didn't feel like building a fire I was able to hang out there. The staff there are very friendly, helpful, and seem to be willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay enjoyable. One night one of the staff even went to help someone get their fire started as they seemed to be having trouble. Something I noticed was that when you buy firewood from them you also get some kindling and a firestarter brick. They are making improvements to the campground from my observation from last year to this visit. Some of the utilities have been improved (more 50amp sites), they are adding cable hookups, and wifi is now available in the campground (no extra charge for wifi). It also looks like they're adding a pizza oven for next season which looks like fun! The only thing that detracts is some kind of pump/machinery that runs intermittently on the far north side of the property. If you're looking for total and complete silence it may be bothersome from time to time. It certainly was not enough to keep you awake or drown out conversation or anything.

This is an old KOA; great place if you tent camp. If you need hookups this place is the pits! New owner has a lot of work to bring this place up to standards. He told me that the campground was dropped by Good Sams this season. The few hookup sites (30 amp) are dirt, no grass left. The one and only 50 amp sites does not have sewer. The campground is miles from anywhere and hard to get to on narrow farm roads with no signs to direct you. The only true statement in the ad was the wi-fi did work; the rest of the ad is very misleading. Pass on this one unless you are tent camping and just want to be out in the country. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects Good Sam. This was a accidental stay, as we left our original campground for lack of services, and needed a quick solution nearby to Cedar Point. The sites are a bit unlevel and dirt. There are lots of trees and most sites a shady. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable of the area. They had a good laundry and we had a full hookup. We would stay here again. We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Motorhome.
Camp staff stated that they were new owners of the campground. We noticed that this park had very few campers, but were very surprised at how friendly the staff was. They delivered wood to our site and came back multiple times to see if we needed anything. We camp very often and have never been taken care of so well. Campsites are very big and the rates are very cheap compared to some of the other campgrounds in the area, and they don't nickel and dime you like other campgrounds regarding guests. I would recommend this campground and will stay here in the future! We camped at Crystal Rock Campground in a Tent Trailer.
We camped at this park for Memorial Weekend and wondered why it was so empty compared to other campgrounds - now we know why. The owners seemed nice at first, but they're only in it for the money. We had a couple people come stay with us and didn't pay the extra $4/person, only to be confronted by the owner with a nasty attitude. He seemed to drink beer all day and when he confronted us, he seemed to be drunk. He came back to apoligize, but it was too late because he already left a bad impression. During our stay, we witnessed another camp group get kicked out of the park. I've been camping for years and have never had a bad experience at a campground, until now. I would not recommend this campground to others. Maybe that's why they're selling the park (even though they just bought it), because they don't quite know how to run it?
