1 Park near Toronto, Ohio
Jul 2015 - $50.00
We are not familiar with the area at all, being from Texas. After some investigating around we chose this park for a few nights on our way to Boston. It appears to be a destination park for lots of folks and does have quite a few residents. We weren't here on a major holiday, but judging by the weekend crowd I imagine this place gets packed. We drove into Pittsburgh two days which was fine. The park is in the middle of nowhere, but the drive is scenic. All facilities worked fine. We stayed in the Red Carpet Row Section. (back-in) Really nice patio and fire ring up against a backdrop of huge trees and creek running behind. Our GPS did not have an optimal route into the park, but the GPS on our phones did. The drive into the park isn't all that treacherous. We have a 37' motorhome pulling a Honda CRV and did fine. As far as kids activities, they have it all. We did rent a boat one day and zip around the lake. There are very few grocery options around or gas stations. Owner/Manager/staff are very nice and helpful. Great place for families and kids or travelers like us. Only downfall to me was, seems everyone started making campfires around 4:00. Some smoke lingers around. - mikel

I have never encountered a greedier campground owner.
Cons: Tiny lots - One side had a camper slide overhanging, the other had a gazebo 2' from our camper bed. No one-way loop for traffic - If your site is near the entrance you get tons of traffic from both directions. Bathhouse - Hot water costs $0.50 for five minutes. Insanity. No sign at wrong turn - GPS/Google maps/etc. send you the wrong way. The owner knows this. There is one wrong turn, which we took. We got stuck on a hill and had to be towed over it. The people that helped us out said that it happens all the time. People are constantly making that wrong turn. Entrance fee - You pay $3.75 to enter the park, THEN pay to do each individual activity. Our family paid for a pavilion for our reunion, but each attendee also had to pay to enter the park. Activities - The tube slide is advertised for age 4 and up, but the children aren't allowed to drag the tube back up the hill, flip it up the hill like a tire flip, or put it on its side and roll it up the hill. They must pick it up and carry it up the hill. What four year old can do this? Heck, what 10 yr old can do this? Also, the concession workers run the tube slide. At one point, my kids were told they were no longer allowed to slide because the worker had to go back to the concession stand. Wifi - Pretty much non-existent. Because there is no cell service at all, you're reliant on this spotty-at-best "wifi" for any sort of communication. Be prepared to walk to another area of the campground to have a strong enough signal to be able to connect.
Pros: The fire ring at the campsite was very nice. The proximity of the creek to our campsite was fun. Lots of things to do to keep kids busy if you're willing to pay extra. Multiple playgrounds (free) that are mostly newer nice ones with a few older, but still serviceable ones, mixed in.
Basically this owner will do anything and everything he can to get more money. - purpleenaj

We stayed in the keyhole full hookups section. The campground folks are great. We were there during trick or treat. There are plenty of activities for the kids. Going back for the Fourth of July this year. If I was a seasonal camper this is where we would be. - psrujak
