Overall, the park, which is on Lake Erie is a nice small park run by Port Erie, so convenient if you like to fish, boat, etc. The park, however, doesn't appear to be managed. There is an office onsite that is not staffed; there is a phone number to call if you need to check in that no one answered and the phone had a full mailbox. No directions on what to do posted, and no site assignment on the confirmation. When we arrived called the number four times to no avail so we had no idea where to park, so we just picked a spot--of course finding out the next day that we needed to move. We arrived at 3:30, so it was not like it was late. One of the other visitors had flagged down someone in a golf cart doing a round to finally open up the office to do check ins (they had been at the campground for three days). Park is convenient to Presque Island and other waterfront activities. Nice bath house, but no other amenities. Good verizon and AT&T and easy to connect DTV satellite. Wide sites. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground run by the city of Erie. Bathhouse and restrooms were new and very nice. Hookups were new. No sewer. They have a laundry. The campground is adjacent to a public marina. The campground is surrounded by a chain link fence and the gate is locked at night. Very close to town. Our site was double booked over the holiday so we had to leave earlier than we expected. But the ranger was incredibly nice and we managed to find another location so it was not a problem for us. Normally, the place is very busy - not surprising. Great spot for fishing. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a nice stay at this urban oasis on the Bayfront in Erie. While you can't really directly see Lake Erie, you are right there. If you are a boater this is ideal. It's a flat oval with all back in sites. Some are longer than others . Great city water and electricity with 3 positions on 2 dump station. Very convenient to shopping and the state park / amusement park on the peninsula. Lowered rating because of lack of full hook up. Directional signage driving in is poor. Very family oriented. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground run by city of Erie. The sites are spacious and several around the bathhouse have lovely views of the bay. I was really surprised at how nice and clean everything was and wish I could have stayed longer. They were totally booked up for the weekend and lots of kids on bikes. The office is closed at 4 and I am not sure if the gates were ever closed at night so be safe when camping there. Our site was paved with 50 amp and water. Jack pads are required and the office will end them out. Two dump stations on the way out were in good shape and very clean. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

The bayfront area has several restaurants and a view tower within easy driving distance. The convention center is also nearby.

The place was very close to the water and you could take your boat to the launch if you liked. More like a park setting. Good large sites, with everything working well. Small but easy to get around. Verizon cell worked well. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Price is average of weekday and weekend rates. No sewer or Wi-Fi but good power, satellite, and phone reception. Large paved pad sites well spaced. Close to many area attractions, including the large and very beautiful Presque Isle State Park. We were here over the local 'Roar On The Shore' Harley-Davidson weekend in town so there were a lot of cycles in the campground but for Harleys they were pretty noise considerate. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

Best campground on our trip from Dayton, OH to Poultney, VT. On Lake Erie, we camped here on a Sunday night on the way home and we wished we could have stayed longer. No sewer at the sites, but the dump sites are very easy access. If you have DirecTV or Dish, they would be easily set up. No Wi-Fi, but had 3G Sprint connectivity. Witnessed a dual mast passenger sailboat come into dock. We researched it and plan on going back up and going for a day cruise. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Travel Trailer.

You might ask - "How can it be a 10 without sewer hookups?" Easy -- sites are spacious, paved, and wide enough to park your car next to your rig. At least 20' separation between sites, and landscaped mounds and to the feeling of privacy. Close to downtown, yet on the water. Good over the air TV. Well maintained, and the lady who checked us in could not have been more helpful. The kind of park where we wished we could have stayed a month. We would go out of our way to stay here again. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

We were very pleased to find this fairly new park right on Lake Erie. Small campground has few amenities, but they aren’t needed with the setting. Paved road and sites, which are easy back-ins and all level. Laundry room, and clean bathroom/showers. No sewer, but three dump sites. No Wi-Fi or cable, but good TV reception. Weekends are $35. We would definitely return. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

The campground is owned and operated by the Erie-Western PA Port Authority, a government agency similar to a municipal government park. It is a very nice park with good 50 amp power at every site. There are actually 3 dump sites, but one faces the wrong direction on the roadway. The showers and restrooms were very clean and well maintained. All the sites were very wide and covered by asphalt. There was chain link fence all the way around. There are no amenities within walking distance, unless you want to fish off the pier walkway along the channel leading to the lake. Appears to be a popular fishing pier for the locals. Good Verizon G3 signal. The trees between the sites are still growing. We camped here in a 36' motorhome diesel pusher and still had lots of room on the site for the toad. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

Site 11 was long, wide, and had view of the lighthouse on Presque Isle State Park. Well laid out county park with 2 dump stations. View of water - not waterfront but close to state park. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice campground run by the City of Erie. Would have given this campground a 10 if it had sewer at each site. There are 2 dump stations. Every site has a wide level asphalt pad with plenty of room between sites, picnic table and fire ring. Roads are asphalt too. Located across the channel from the Coast Guard Station on Presque Isle. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Motorhome.

If you can imagine camping in a supermarket parking lot, then you will love this campground. If you need trees, shade, some level of privacy, then this is not the place for you. The sites are described as "Waterfront" but a chain link fence divides you from the edge of the lake. The campground is in an industrial area and offers no amenities within walking distance. The wind is fierce coming off of the lake and there is no buffer. The $20.00 nightly fee is great, but this was only offered during the 2005-2006 season. The new rate is not posted yet. There is a FREE boat launch and bike trails nearby. This is the first campground I have ever set-up in and then packed up and left. The desk staff was understanding to our need for more a more rustic campground and refunded our money with no problem. We camped at Lampe Marina Campground in a Travel Trailer.
