The staff owner was great. Had a flat tire he came and inflated and recomended a shop close to fix it. Very quiet campground, will stay there again when in the area. - Holman

30 amp and water only. There is a dump on the way out, but it is on the wrong side of the road. Trees need to be trimmed. We scratched the side of our rig getting into one of their "big rig" sites. 90% of their sites are used for seasonal or long-term people. Most of these rigs are going nowhere, ie: rotted tires, roofs caved in, etc. We will not return. - Joezilla

Very accommodating owners; son & dw-in-law taking over from dad (hopefully). Seasonal, daily or weekly rates: pay for 6, get 7th night free. High water table means you cannot use sewer dump after recent rains: gotta wait a couple days for the septic system to catch up. Very pleasant place, large sites out front, easy access for large rigs. - DonF

Stayed 2 days in a 5th wheel, was a decent park to stay in while visiting friends. Park owners/hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Site was very nice although was just grass....but nice thick grass. We will definitely stay here again.... - steelpony

First of all - this campground has something many campgrounds lack - it has a soul! You feel very welcome from the first minute you check in and until you leave. Owners present (they live at the CG) and are helping all the time. Most of the sites are seasonal and this campground really changed my earlier a bit negative view of the guests who stay long. Seasonal here are exceptionally friendly and comes by to say hi and share some tips of local restaurants, places worth seeing etc. Campground is easy to find, sign easy to see, you get a gate card so you can get inside 24/7. Sewer for grey water and 50AMP electric. We were there during Labour Day and were lucky to get a site since one person cancelled late. In the center there is a lake divided in to a fishing zone and one for swimming. Took a swim almost every night to cool down and it was really clean and very well kept. Laundry worked fine and toilets were simple but clean. We camped in our Fifth Wheel and are full timers so did not use the facilities very often. The wireless internet is the best we have encountered so far. A steady 5-10mb/s and a customer service Best in Class. The even gave us some extra hours at the day we left for free. They do charge a buck or two per day but that is ok since the speed was fantastic. I rather pay a small fee and KNOW it works then to get to a CG with lousy free WiFi that comes and goes. Cosy place and highly recommended, again - hardware is important like electricity etc. but software is actually a factor worth competing with as well. They had a small store with great prices and we filled propane as well. Fireplaces at every site. Lots of trees and shade not perfect for satellite dishes but we did not have time to watch TV, nice to socialize with all the great people instead. At labour Day they had MooseHunt for the kids and some other activities. Very family friendly. Price here was low (hope the owner does not read this review!) even given the fact that electricity and internet was extra. Lots to see in Toledo as well so the two weeks we stayed went VERY fast. We will for sure come back hopefully already in the spring. - BasilFawlty

Positives: There is easy access off turnpike. The office staff is extremely helpful. It is owner operated, and he too was very helpful. Negatives. No sewer hookup in the pull through site we had, but there was a drain that we could run a hose and drain grey water. It was not a big deal, because we only stayed one night here. There was no cable, and it is heavily treed, so satellite wouldn't work. There appeared to be a significant number of seasonal sites. Inner roads fairly tight for my 40' MH, but we did get into one of their four pull-through sites without much problem. Again, owner and staff are friendly and their helpful manner made up for anything lacking in the campground. - teofff

Rate reflects weekly. Quiet and clean. Minimal bathrooms (no paper towels) and showers. Sites level but small. Most sites are permanent. Not much to write about. Many trees that will possibly mess up satellite usage. Many residents use golf carts but not excessively. - Bigbyte

Don't be fooled by the beauty of the entrance to the park. Once you are behind the owner's home you will see that this park has not had maintenance in some time. One shower for men and one for women in a park with 200 sites. If you are parked in the electric and water area you have true "outhouses" to use. Majority of campers are here permanently and almost all use gas powered golf carts constantly. It smells like you are parked in a rest stop instead of in the woods. Every weekend night at 9 PM they have a parade with their golf carts, circling the park 2-3 times and blowing their horns all the way! - wilmamc

This huge park is mostly seasonals, but has a separate area of level grass full-hookup sites for transients. Just OK with the full rate, the park is a bargain at the Passport America rate. Our site was fairly level, hookups worked well, and the for-fee WiFi was adequate. No cable but a few OTA channels, and no obstructions to the satellites. Good Verizon cell/data. We were there on a weekday so it was quiet during our stay. Well worth the stop with the PA rate. - Meanderman

This was the only park around. We expected to be nicked & dimed extra fee for sewer, extra fee to run your air conditioners, extra fee for WiFi. There is no cable. This is a huge park, 800 sites, lots of them permanent residents. It is in the middle of corn fields with nothing else around it. It is not that far from Toledo, though. First problem, no water. Decided to call the office since we were so far away. No cell service. Turns out Verizon works here but that is about it. The reason we had no water was they were working on the lines. It came on within the hour. We had to reset the circuit breaker because the power is not strong here & running both air conditioners was too much for it. We are here for 2 nights but will probably only stay one & move on. - Connie's Co-Owner

Please be aware there is a whole page of additional fees. 30 amp service plus additional $2.50 to use your own AC. Golf carts overrun the place. There is an additional fee for sewer based on the number of people. I will not return--don't nickle dime me to death. - az2wv

Being from Bowling Green and wanting to spend time with Family & Friends, and no other park readily available we have found the Fairgrounds an excellent choice. The parking for us has always been very convenient, open 24 hrs, patrolled by city police and most accommodating. Dump station is available, water hookups and electric is good but only 1 private 50 amp electric hook up available all others are 30. This is home to the National Tractor Pull and Wood County Fair so be aware that camping here during those events is very restrictive but available. You are 4 minutes from downtown and only 20 minutes from Toledo. Easy access from I-75 or US 6 and close to I-80 the Ohio Turnpike. We enjoy the stay. Dogs welcome and the love the walking due to all the Fair Facilities that are used year round. I will not hesitate to stay here. - rahangman

Definitely an older park that shows its age in several ways. Most notably, the restrooms, showers and laundry could all use some cleaning and repainting. While they were not dirty when we were there, they were just dingy and old, and were definitely not of the quality we'd expect at the price we were paying. Two dryers were out of order in the laundry. Picnic tables were run down, and the electrical boxes also showed their age, but ours did work fine. The "free wifi" was completely inaccessible at our site that was relatively close to the office; I did not see any repeater antennas in the campground. I could access WiFi if I walked closer to the office. Again, not at all what I would expect for $38 per night. Plus, the charge included $3 extra for a/c, which I probably should not have paid because it ended up being cool that night, and $2 extra for sewer. I would feel more positively about the place if those both were included in the $33 base rate. But at least there is a Good Sam discount. Overall, this place would be fine if the rate were no more than $20 per night. As is, I would definitely try to find more quality for my buck somewhere else. On the positive side, the check-in staff was very friendly. - Edistobob

Oldest campground in the state going back to 1949. Yes, very old, but it fills our needs very well. Lots of shaded sites, superb, clean in ground pool, nice swimming pond with jumbo raft. Not for the rich folks with those mega mansions on wheels. For the poor folks on a limited income like me, it is a perfect place. During the week, pay for 3 nights and get one free. Putt Putt Golf is nice. Old playground, laundry room, game room, mega family use shelter with grill just steps away from pond and good fishing. Many have rated this place as poor; well, this be what I be looking for. Note: where can you spend 4 nights for a hundred bucks. Yes, you get what you pay for, so suck it up since my family of 4 all truly like this place. Oh yeah, good WiFi too. - ALPOE

Password for Wi-Fi given by office did not work. Laundry had 4 washers and 4 dryers. 2 washers and 2 dryers were out of order. Mens shower and restroom was dirty. 2 shower stalls and one was out of order, other stall had no shower head. This campground is by far the worst I have stayed in in the last 42 years of camping. The fact that that they used the picture of the guy standing on the yellow and blue raft says it all about the facility. Look close and you will see the man giving the finger with both hands to photographer. - Matt Hill

We selected a pull through with electric, no water, no sewer since they said that the back in FHU sites were not long enough. Many of the back in sites look plenty long enough for our 60' length hooked up. The site was gravel and fairly level. Trees are growing and will provide more shade in future, newer sites are in the direct sun. We didn't make use of the pool and hot tub in the hotel, which are available to campers. - 2hams

The campground is right on the Sauder Village property so everything is within walking distance. Clean, level, large full hookup site. Easy in and out. Has a wonderful walking trail which is also great for bikes. We enjoyed our time there and will return. - Let'sGo!

We had two totally different experiences. During the week, CG is nice, quiet, great area and the historic village is a nice treat. BUT the week-end this turned into a bad state park. No apparent rules, multiple vehicles at sites, several tents on one site, kids racing through park on bikes, 6 to 15 people on a single site, drivers doing 25 - 30mph, and of course everyone with a smudge pot. On the plus side, even with all these issues, the park is still relatively quiet. Would only return during the week but never on a week-end. - Novatz

This is a lovely park with a beautiful lake. Lots of well-kept seasonal rvs. Well kept with lots of lawns and gravel roads to walk the dogs. We stayed in one of the few pull-thrus, which are at the back of the park. This is the noisy section: the highway is right next to the campsites. - beckydmc

Fire Lake Camper Park is a mostly seasonal user campground situated around a small lake and close to (in) Bowling Green. They had about 12 RV sites for short term stays.
Everything was clean and well kept. The staff was friendly, and helpful.
They had a restroom with several toilets and sinks. All well built and clean. The showers were separate rooms with a shower, dressing area and two hooks which were well built and clean.
We had a back-in site with water and 50 amp electric.
During our stay the outside temps were hot and the electric service was great. I ran both air conditioners and the electric voltage stayed at about 119VAC.
We would recommend to others. - William3

The owner was very accommodating. We arrived after 5:00 and she came to our site to check us in. We stayed one night so the pull-through site was perfect. The people who camp there are so friendly and my kids loved fishing there. I highly recommend this park. The only downside I have to say is that it was not full hookup. Other than that it was a wonderful place to stay. - SoniaR

First impression when entering park is very good. Carryout/deli in office area, driving range and small pond for fishing/swimming. Arriving at our site we were not as impressed. Park is 90% seasonal and the places around us were not cleaned up before they left for season. Beer bottles, and other trash were left beside a tree on our site. Site is a corner lot so was roomy. The park was empty with only a couple seasonal still present. Water pressure is poor, no terrible. They have two pumps but not commercial size. Can't run water in two sinks at once. We used their showers because we couldn't get enough water pressure in ours to get wet. We have stayed in RV resorts with a lot of amenities for the price we paid here. They were told about trash but never came to pick it up. Kept our gray tank closed due to sewer odor. End of season and they haven't had their holding tank cleaned. We will not stay here again. - Pennylee

The campground has mostly seasonal sites. The site we were on was terrible - mostly mud, with a few sprouts of grass here and there, and when it rained, the back of the camper, including the jacks, electrical cord, and water hose, were laying in two inches of water. Good thing I didn't need anything out of the back of the camper around that time. There was another site only a few feet behind our camper, too. It looked like most of the other 'transient' sites were on grass, and I don't think they were full, so I'm not sure how we landed on that lousy site. The only thing I liked about the site was that it was shady.
The roads were in good shape, although navigating to our site was bizarre - we had to drive through the site from the side, then back in. It made sense once we saw it, but when they explained it to us in the office, we were scratching our heads. No major problem with the utilities or their location, other than the rainwater issue I mentioned above. We were in site #51 - on the map it looks parallel to the site behind it, but that's not how we were directed to use it - the front of our camper was facing toward the bathhouse.
The office was also a small grocery store/deli, more than the usual campground store affair. There are two lakes - I think you can swim in one and fish in the other. There was also an auction every Saturday night. We didn't try any of these. The wifi worked fine.
A golf cart hit our camper during our stay, so we talked to a lot more people than usual. Everyone we talked to, including the owners, were as nice and helpful as they could be. The owners got the name, address, and insurance information for us and had it ready when we came back to the campground after a day in Detroit and discovered the damage.
Note, all sites are 50 amp only. If you have a 30 amp camper, you need an adapter. They sell them at the store. - skater

This old campground is way overpriced. Yes, it is clean, but just a money grab. $45 per storage and the only option is to pay from the 1st to the end of the month with no discount for starting in the middle of month. Owner is old, rude, and a money grabber. What a shame she thinks everyone can afford the outrageous fees; sorry that is not for us. Good roads, all utilities work, close spaces, shaded camp sites. Dirt roads, clean restrooms and showers. General store onsite, with beer, wine, liquor and Lotto along with deli and pizza. Dump stations, swimming pool, fishing pond, golf driving range, and shelter for rent. Over priced: charged extra 10 buck's per night for kids and dogs. - ALPOE

Friendly staff & nice site. We stayed here on our way from New York to Illinois. Convenient to stay, as it's close to the highway. The dog park is very small and is simply a fenced in yard. Pool is small and somewhat dirty. The grounds were pretty clean and the kamping kabins looked nice. The bathroom, ick. So glad we had our own bathroom in our camper. We had stayed here 4 years ago on our way home from Maine and the same thing. The bathrooms need a deep clean and remodel. They're really gross. - EllenT

We prefer not to stay in KOA, but this one was on our route & convenient to the interstate. They are expensive in most cases & not much to talk about.
Water and electric. Gravel, grass and picnic tables, shaded. Sites were nearby. Pull through. Pool, mini golf (joke), pet run (small), small playground. - jcpjane

Price reflects Value Kard discount with tax. Roads and sites were gravel. We encountered low branches upon entering, and our premium pull thru was not satellite friendly as requested. They permitted us to move to a second site, which was satisfactory. Staff was somewhat cordial, but obviously not going out of their way to be friendly. They were unable to print our receipt due to a lightning strike, but did not manage to get one to us prior to our departure. WiFi was mostly up and down and elusive, so we used our Verizon MiFi. Would stay again in a pinch. - BigRigTravelerUSA
