We stayed here for 2 nights, midweek. We found our site #104 to be everything we need for a short layover. We used the laundry and found it very clean and easily accessible. One thing that impressed us the most was the handicap ramp at the pool. We are full-timers and have rarely found a cg with this accessibility for someone who needs that kind of access. We firmly believe the cg is worth the cost and totally disagree with previous review. Yes, there are many permanent residents, but compared to other campgrounds in the area, our site gave us plenty of pull-through space for our 40' MH with full-size truck. We would definitely return; went into Presque Isle State Park for sunset boat tour and found this cg met all our needs! - Steve & Linda

This place has terrible interior roads, skinny with sharp 90 degree turns into muddy, gravel sites separated by muddy grass. Impossible to get a big rig into sites without driving over mushy, muddy, grass, I almost got my 40' MH stuck, rear wheels spinning and digging big ruts in the mud. Many utility posts appeared to have been hit by rigs and were leaning. Many sites looked way off level too. They offer propane but when I requested it, the staffer said the guy who does that was not available that day. Baths are dated, but were clean. Not much to do in Erie but visit Presque Isle State Park. We will not return. - rvrrat520

This is a mix of long term residents and one nighters. Many of the long term sites also have a boat on a trailer. Based on the number of residents leaving before 6 am, many must have jobs.
The bathrooms are very dated, peeling paint and wet floors. They seemed to be clean. Nice camp store but they were out the door at 6 pm. Five minutes after my arrival.
The overnight area was fairly empty so there was some space between units. Previous reviewers are correct in that during busy times we may have bump out issues. - fudge_brownief

The campground is very easy access from I-90. The campground driveway is paved with the remaining roads and sites gravel. The paved portion is slightly larger than one lane and has three large speedbumps within the space of 100 yards. The back portion of the campground appears to be mostly park models and permanent or semi-permanent trailers. The front portion of the campground is a row of pull-throughs with back-in sites around the perimeter. There had been significant rain prior to our arrival and although the gravel road and site were dry enough, everything else was quite muddy. In speaking with the owner, he indicated they had not been able to add additional gravel due to persistent rain but were planning to do that as soon as possible. We drive a 45 foot MH with a tow and were able to navigate into, through, and out of the CG. Roads are a bit on the narrow side for our rig and getting out of the site took slow and careful navigation but I think they would be adequate for something a bit smaller. The sites are a gravel surface with a small patio with pavers and flowers. They are quite close with a small strip of grass in between. There are many young trees in this area as well. The utilities are placed mid site and worked well. The Wi-Fi did not really work for us, it appears as if we connected but the service was too slow for making connections. Our Verizon hot-spot was adequate for gentle internet surfing. We did not use the rest rooms, laundry, or cable so cannot comment on that. There is no defined park park but there is a nice area in the front where people were walking their dogs. When calling to register you speak personally with the owner. When I first called she was unable to take my call but did call me back later in the day. The owners were friendly and helpful. Although the CG is quite close to the highway, it is very quiet and peaceful. - LvR

Stayed here for several days. This is a privately owned campground that is part of a "seasonal" trailer park. The transient camping area is about 100 yards from Hwy 832. There is some traffic noise, but it isn't bad. I-90 is approximately 3/4 mile away. The park is undergoing some aesthetic improvements like new patios. The sites need some leveling. The utility pedestals by the pond appear to be new. We stayed on a back-in site next to a pond with views of nice sunsets. Sites could use some more gravel as recent rains made things a bit muddy. Strangely, we had to share hookups with someone else who was parked in the field about 8 ft. from us. I would stay here again but would not want to share my hookups. Several large speed bumps as you enter campground. - jl2000

Due to wet weather during our stay, mud everywhere. They are putting in cement block patios, and when all the work is done it will be very nice - and a lot less mud I am sure. Manager was very friendly and helpful. - EnjoyinLife

We stayed at this park after a snafu with a reservation at another campground. It's not listed anywhere. It is located on a cliff overlooking Lake Erie with a long flight of stairs going down to the beach. We couldn't get DirecTV due to the trees, but there were about ten local channels. There is a Wi-Fi hotspot in the office. There is a large heated pool and there are probably a large number of campers and day visitors in season. It is very convenient to Presque Isle State Park. - RVerMJ

Stayed here before, but this time it was over Memorial Day. Very crowded. This is a family oriented park, so lots of activities for kids including bounce mat, pools, movies, huge playground, etc. Pros are the activities for kids and service of staff. Cons are the small, narrow, short sites. Sites are really jumbled so fit around all the cabins and trees. Sites and roads are dirt and gravel and are hard to maneuver a larger rig. Only a couple of sites for a 45' coach. Not much overflow parking so cars everywhere. Every site has a fire ring, and the smoke is heavy most all day and night. Many muddy areas despite no rain. One tiny dog run and one larger one that was soiled & muddy. Limited places to walk dogs on leash. Utilities good, but cable horrid. OTA TV was better. Might skip this place next time. - okdiver

Erie KOA is probably a lovely park to stay in during the summer season if you have young children and an RV smaller than 40 feet, or wanted to make use of their cool-looking teepees or basic cabins for rent. We, however, have a 40 foot motorhome and found the park layout extremely difficult to navigate. We were warned not to attempt exiting past the dump station, as it apparently is quite hard on RV owners who risk it. Our assigned site was angled exactly the wrong way to follow the approved exit path, but with some maneuvering we were able to get our rig pointed the right way and our tow car hooked up. Even though our space was a pull-thru, it would have been impossible to leave the car hooked up. This park does recycle. The dumpster for that purpose is located behind a fence at the back of the property. Cable TV worked fine and we were able to get broadcast channels from nearby Erie. We did not use the park WiFi. Our Verizon service worked well. Sabo's Pizza will deliver to the park, but is not admitted past the entrance, thus requiring campers to meet the delivery vehicle there. - The Borgs

Excellent property! Super clean, well maintained and mowed, good gravel roads and level sites. CG is laid out in a ring around a nice size pond. Lots of folk were "fishing" with kiddie poles. Paddle boat and bike rentals are available, and Pygmy goats are in a pen for your amusement. Three huge teepees are available for rent, along with cabins of various sizes. A small dog run is located behind the far bath house. Heated pool and playground are in the center. Pretty landscaping and flower beds throughout, although not between all the sites so privacy is site dependent. Far enough from the highway so there's no traffic noise, but easy to reach from I-79. We were very pleased with Erie KOA as an overnight stop! - Flying Mantis

At arrival, we felt very unwelcome. It is basically a fishing camp. Very rough road in and steep gravel hill to campsite, which was a pull through in basically a lawn. Grass was very high. Mostly older seasonals. We will not return. - Corninggirl

Stayed here Halloween Weekend; cold, windy and raining but we had the river behind us. We did try steelhead fishing but the weather made it impossible. We would stay here again. Site had picnic table and fire ring. No one on either side of us so that was nice, roomy and the place was quiet. Mostly just fisherman so no kids around that I saw. Not much for them to do here. The road into the place is a bit rough and over all the place could be updated but was OK. We only used the electric, brought our own water and used dump station, which was nicely set up for use. - Ohiojude

Easy access off I-90. The driveway in is a bit steep and a lot rough but doable for our 37' fiver. We had a pull-thru site right next to the pavilion/bath house and there were some guys hanging around there when we got to our campsite which made me a bit uneasy. However, soon found they were there for some Lake Erie fishing trips and were staying in the dorm-like rooms in the bath house section of the pavilion. Bathrooms were clean but small (3 showers/1 toilet on women's side) and could use a little updating. They are locked at night but you get a key when you check in. The creek was low in August; it seems their good fishing season is fall through spring. You can purchase PA fishing licenses and all your fishing gear at the store which is geared more for fishing than camping. There is a small catch-and-release pond on the grounds and Lake Erie fishing is 15 minutes away. Very quiet; beautiful scenery; swings, jungle gym and slide for the kids; volleyball net. I think the pull-thru sites are rather close together but since we were the only "big rig" there (most were seasonals), we had the whole area to ourselves. Would definitely stay here again. - PennyPA

This is basically a 55+ community with each home consisting of a trailer or motorhome, with accessory buildings/decks/porches/garage/etc built around it, and 15 transient sites. Most of the sites are huge and shaded. When we were here, we were the only transient unit. The place is extremely quiet, which was a relief for us after a series of "family" parks. It is not geared toward children. There is an old, worn-out set of play equipment. A paved road goes back to the shore of Lake Erie, where you can peacefully enjoy the lake and watch sunsets. NOTE: They take cash or checks only. The owners/staff were very polite and accommodating. As older adults, we loved this place. I could happily live here. Roads are asphalt in excellent condition. Sites are gravel, with healthy, green grass. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. - pompomgirl

Very neat and clean, pull through sites, easy in and out, just about every site has a shade tree, no sewer but easy access dump station. Great sunsets over looking Lake Erie. Paved roads and level gravel pads. - ragsland

Camp Eriez is a fishing village, but don't let that fool you. There are 15
pull thru sites dedicated to the overnight stays. All the access roads are black topped and the site pads are around 55' long, level, and gravel. The patio is grass. Site width is about 35' with a full grown maple tree planted mid-site for shade. Each site has a campfire ring and all the picnic tables were in great shape. The 50a power was stable, water pressure was around 45psi, there is no sewer at the site however the dump station is conveniently located. Our hotspot got a decent signal for internet purposes. Being the end of summer, some of the grass in the patio area was beaten up. We arrived after a rain storm and the sandy soil had absorbed all standing water. The campground and surrounding seasonal village is well kept and maintained. While some of the seasonal fisherman have their collection of gear, the place had a purposeful, lived in feel but was not junky. The swimming pool had just closed for the season and will undergo renovations for next year. They have a little viewing area overlooking Lake Erie equipped with benches for watching sunsets. We were pleasantly surprised with this campground and would definitely come back again. - Born2Roam

Just stayed overnight so didn't see much of campground. Very crowded but with access to beach. Definitely a place to use as a jumping-off point for visiting beaches and attractions nearby. - GregAndKatie
Oct 2016 - $18.00
We were packed in like sardines with campers, dogs barking, children playing and smoke from campfires filling our Airstream. (I am allergic to smoke.) We did not mind the children playing and all the campers were friendly. Little room to walk our 20 lb. leashed pup! Loved being close to the beach but it was so inconvenient to cross the road for office and laundry (which was in sad shape). The staff acted like we bothered them when we checked in or asked for help. All the attractions and shops were closed, except for a pizza shop. - GailMOH

What can you say...it's Sara's. The only camping before you enter Presque Isle State Park. It's not for everybody, but I love it. Love the location for bike riding. No need for a car, get on your bike and do the 14 mile peninsula. Kayaking in the region although I drove to it, is fabulous. There's Sara's Ice Cream and food, pizza shop, light groceries right there. Waldamere Park just up the hill.
Rest rooms new and clean. The camping is tight though. If you're looking for location, location, location, Sara's is your girl. If you want seclusion and large campsites, go to Hill's Family Campground about 5 miles from Sara's.
Have camped at Sara's many times, and will be back soon! - JeffKruzic

The good thing about this place was we were backed up to Elk Creek and could watch fisherman fishing for steelhead. Then this place goes downhill and fast. The bathrooms both men and woman were not cleaned, smelled and the you had to turn on the lights after you walked in and locked the door. The "street lighting" was on all night and was right behind us. We were spaced on top of each other, too close to put up the awning, no picnic table, no fire ring. Would not recommend this place nor stay here again. Too expensive for what is offered. Clean it up, bring the price down and maybe. - Ohiojude

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Most of the sites are in a open field, with little shade. Our site was sloped front to back but a few blocks took care of it. The sites are big rig friendly and the owner leads you to the site. Our site had 30 amp with full hookups and all services worked good.
Their WiFi is not bad even with a full campground. There was no cell service ATT. We got about 10 over the air channels.
The shower and restroom was up the hill behind our site but it was clean and had plenty of hot water. It is a gated park that you get a access card for a $10 deposit. Overall the park is quiet, a little off the beaten path but manageable, and the trains in the distance are a nice touch but they do run day and night.
The biggest asset here is the views of Lake Erie and the fantastic sunsets. Just sit and enjoy the view during the day and the stars at night with a campfire. We would return if in the area. - smoky40

Great views of Lake Erie! I've been tent camping here for years and will definitely go back. I think it's a little on the pricey side for what you get, but the view alone makes it worth the money.
RV parking is in a large almost entirely open field. There are a decent number of seasonal campers. They have some great fishing off the old dock, as well as kayak rentals on-site. It's a family run business, and they are great people. Very nice to talk to. Very strict on the 5 MPH speed limit. (I learned that my first trip out there many years ago.)
I would definitely recommend. It's worth checking out. - Bill from PA

Absolutely gorgeous!! Waterfront sites in soft green grass. Fire rings! Full hook ups. No cable, but who needs TV with this experience. We stayed one night due to our schedule but if we had known what was waiting here we would have planned longer. You can walk and enjoy the shoreline and nature. Call for directions! They were right on track and we didn't have any problems. The GPS would have messed us up. Staff friendly. There are a lot of full time campers but the pull through sites are all in their own area. I would book a week here next time. - Susan A.

Nice clean campground right on Lake Erie. Good utilities - no sewer but a dump station. Very nice bath/shower facilities. Paved roads and pads and nice grassy areas and plenty of space between sites. No cable but a number of channels on the batwing. Traffic was a little crazy coming in but found out there was a special event going on causing traffic issues. Little traffic leaving in the a.m. It was quiet at night until about 4 a.m. when all the nearby industrial businesses kicked in then there was lots of noise. Main gates close about 7 p.m. But there is another gate through the marina parking lot to your right that is always open if you're late. Not too crowded when we were there but understand it often is and reservations are recommended. - utchaps

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. - TheRestlessYoungs

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. - ArkansasTraveler
