This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at. There are a lot of seasonal campers but everything is so well kept. Everything was well groomed and clean, we loved walking the campground and seeing the landscaping of the seasonal sites. The staff was very helpful and kind. We will definitely stay here again. - PWMC58

This campground is mostly seasonal but all the sites are very nicely maintained. One of the nicest seasonal campgrounds that we have seen. They have about 5 pull thru sites that they use for short term stays. Everything was clean and well groomed. We visited friends in the local area so didn't really use too much the campground had to offer. Owners live on site and were very friendly and helpful. We had plenty of room. - D&K

The lady at check in was wonderful, cheerful, and super helpful. My site was loaded with dog poop, including in my fire pit. I enjoy camping with dogs, and do not understand irresponsible owners my flight was loaded with dog poop not including in my fire pit. The site should have been looked at by staff. Camp host were nowhere to be seen in the 3 days I was here. Bathrooms were OK. Could use some bleach but generally OK. Price kind of high for what it is. - TwoDogsCamping

This is a huge (600 sites?) campground located about 20 miles off I-77 on Pymatuning Reservoir. Camping with pets is allowed in two of the loops (100-150 and 201-252). We were here on a Monday night and it looked as if the weekend had been busy. There had also been a windstorm the previous Thursday that blew down trees and limbs. We chose a site off the lakeside because it was level and we did not have to unhitch. The site had not been swept and I cleaned up paper towels and other trash. The fire-ring was filthy with partially burned food and trash. We walked around the loop before deciding to stay, but other sites were not any cleaner. The restroom and showers appeared to be clean. The camphost did not return our greeting then or the next morning, just looked away when we spoke to him. Despite all this, we would stay here again. It is a pretty place that is under maintained, but this may be due to budgetary problems. The office staff was very helpful and we had a good night's sleep. - canoeperson

Beautiful park with large, level campsites. We had a great view of Pymatuning Lake and enjoyed watching the boaters out cruising and kids splashing in the swimming area. Each area of the campground has a restroom/shower and laundry facilities just a short walk away. We had a satellite friendly site but were also able to pick up quite a few local stations over the air. Our Verizon had a strong signal so using the phone or MiFi wasn't a problem. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone looking for a family friendly place for reunions or other such gatherings. Take note though: The Jamestown Campground is located 2 1/2 miles from the Pymatuning State Park headquarters. If you call the park you can get the exact address for your gps. - windjamming

This was our first trip in our RV. The owners greeted us upon our arrival and escorted us to our site. Staff stayed with us until we were level and hooked up to the water and electric. There was heavy rain the day we arrived to the point that there was local flooding in some areas. We were still able to walk around the grounds without too much difficulty, athough some sites were waterlogged. Bath houses could use updating. Pool was clean and clear but weather prevented us from using it. Only complaint was a camper came in and reversed parked in the pull through site next to us with their door facing ours. The camp ground could have moved them over a site or two but put them next to us. Prior to departure a honey truck service was provided to empty our tanks. Owners were very friendly and helpful. There were a large amount of seasonal sites at this campground. - dpgllg

We are here often and it one of our favorites! Site 340 right on the lake, although you will need some leveling blocks at this site. An eagle nesting site is very close and we saw them soring over the campsite. Electric only at this site. - myriad

Pymatuning State Park is not like the other Ohio State Parks we have visited. Most spots are taken up by seasonal campers. Many sites are 20 amp, some are 30 amp, and a few are 50 amp full hook up. Most sites are not adequate for our 35' motor home. The spots are too short and not level. However, we stayed in the pull thru spots (1-7) and were quite comfortable. There was shade on our spot so we didn't need the 50 amp service to run the two air conditioners. The park is clean, well patrolled, and quiet. I would camp here again. - Tammy7

Stayed in a walk-in RV campsite for a week or so before July 4th weekend and through July 4th weekend and a few days later.
First impressions of a campground start at the office personnel. The staff at Pymatuning State Park, OH side were extremely friendly and accommodating. No matter what time of day, even amidst other customers yelling at them, they were very friendly and patient.
Not only were the staff friendly but so were the seasonals. Just about all of them would make small talk or say hi when walking by.
The campground is huge with a ton of families. Lots of children, which my children enjoyed. Most of the kids seemed to get along just fine no matter where they were from; be it Cleveland or rural areas.
The bathrooms were a little beat up structurally, but clean, with lots of hot and high water pressure. There are many places to find drinkable water to include filling the RV's fresh water tank. Many accessible dump stations. A ton of playgrounds. The beach was a little small but it didn't matter with the kids. Lots of fishing from the lakeshore.
4th of July weekend was a blast with fireworks being launched along lakeshore. They even had an outdoor movie theater playing Disney type movies. Lots of happy energy that weekend. Every weekend had many families with children. Even mid-week was full of families with children.
Wifi was rocking from the camp office if the RV wasn't more than 3 or 4 rows down toward the lake, else you need some kind of range booster to pick-up the wifi.
We really enjoyed the vibe of the campground and general area. Just an easy going laid back feel.
It's the kind of campground that you want to return to.
The only negative I observed was the park ranger/police guy. He seemed to be looking to harass people, but other than that it's a near 10. - mynyel

Bathrooms are a bit run down, but clean. Grounds are clean and well maintained. Old water works and the indoor pool is removed, but the outdoor pool is renovated and nice. Park staff is excellent. Wifi is poor. - Donulus

Price reflects TRA membership. This is our third year visiting this campground. Three years ago our grandchildren had a ball; indoor & outdoor pool, paddle boats, miniature golf and even a water park. Last year, as reflected in the previous review, everything was gone except the outdoor pool. This year the outdoor pool was closed for repairs there is absolutely nothing for families to do. Needless to say we will not be returning. - TheBounders

PRO’S: Nice large sites - very deep and wide. Sites are grass and gravel. Many open, unshaded sites as well as some shaded. Clean restrooms and showers. Nice playground area for the kids. Nice pool. Good water pressure. The grounds staff was friendly and helpful. CON’S: There used to be a nice water park that was part of this campground. We camped next to friends who camped in their TT with their young children. Imagine our surprise when upon our arrival we found that the water park was no longer there! It was bulldozed and removed this past spring. We were never told that the water park was no longer there when we booked our sites! The water park was one of the main reasons that we choose this park for this particular weekend destination. When booking my site, they asked about my rig and I specifically told them that it was a 40 ft MH, 50 amp, two slides, and I preferred an open, unshaded site for satellite reception, if possible. They said that it was no problem, but they didn’t have 50 amp, only 30 amp. Upon arrival, the site that was assigned to me was one of the few sites that contained a large willow tree. So large that I couldn’t fit my rig into the site without hitting several limbs. Upon notifying the office, they simply assigned us to a different (open) site. Upon hooking up, we also discovered that the sites did in fact have 50 amp service as well as 30 and 20 amp. If visiting this campground, be sure to bring a Lot of extra water hose, sewer hose, and power extensions. The hook ups are very far to the rear of the sites. Depending upon where you position your rig in the site, you could be approximately 30 to 40 feet from the hookups! Fortunately for us I carry a lot of extra lengths of hookup extensions for just such an occasion. Management really needs to revisit training of their office personnel. It seems that they have little knowledge of the campground sites and amenities for which they are booking. Now that we know what to expect, we might consider staying there again, mainly due to the extremely large, open sites. However, if there is an alternative nearby, we may look elsewhere. - mtrumpet

Very nice park, sites were clean and roomy, shower and bath house very undated with tile throughout. Only had 3 comodes in men's and womans had 4, showers were very nice but you never knew if you were going to have a warm or cold shower, pressure poor. Had to lput the shower handle to get them to work. Most of our trip the showers were barely warm. The play area and pool were nice and large. The Hot tub just warm at best. But we would stay here again. Got Satellite signal okay. - snoopy216

Bay Shore was a decent campground. The playground is older, but we liked the concrete pads on each site. They charge extra for air conditioning which we never even used but oh well. Some our family members really love Bayshore but we thought it wasn't anything special. - Ilove2camp

We have been camping here for 5 years. This year we decided to get a seasonal site here. Best decision yet. This gentleman runs a very clean campground. He doesn't put up with shenanigans of any sort. The restrooms are spotless. There are lots of fun activities. They have at least one band a month in the summer months. July had two bands. This weekend is Mardi Gras weekend and there will be two bands playing on Saturday afternoon and evening! We've made some good friends and every weekend is a blast! - KellyK

This is a very nice campground that is close to Pymatuning State Park. It is quiet with great owners. They almost always have availability. - RVCamperCowboy

This is a very nice park; family owned for many years. Staff is very friendly and helpful. After they saw the size of our rig, they willingly changed our reserved site to a larger one and escorted us to it. Many full-time residents but all sites were very well maintained. Lots of trees and plenty of shade but no problem getting large rigs around the roads. The sites are gravel but very level. They even have a flush toilet in the outhouse in the tent area. - SandyA

Single lane registration in front of office. Possible bottleneck for incoming traffic.
The office is shared with the most complete and well-stocked campground store we've seen to date. Very friendly lady checked us in. Escorted to site.
The campground is very hilly. You are either going up or down no matter where you are in this park. Surprisingly level site. No side-to-side leveling was needed for us, however, we did notice many of the seasonal units were using multiple blocks on one side. This park has a ton of seasonal units throughout. Some look well cared for. Others...not so much.
Water pressure was 60 psi. Power was good. Cable was poor. Not sure if that's a problem throughout the park or just a bad hookup at our site.
The wifi signal is weak and how they manage it is disappointing. You are given an individual password at check-in that allows you to access wifi on only 1 device. Do not use your phone on their wifi. The system will detect it and lock you out. If multiple members of your party want to use wifi on a tablet or laptop, you're out of luck. The password registers the first device and will not allow other devices to join using the same password. Hugely disappointed with their approach.
Put on your hiking shoes because you'll need them just to get around this park. We were located where they put short-term campers (400 Loop) and, from there, everything is up hill. Literally. On a positive note, you'll get in some aerobics walking up to the Snack Shack.
The Snack Shack offered a variety of food items. The pizza was decent.
Daily rates are on the high side, but that is something we've noticed with campgrounds that are only open part time. There's a need to generate revenue during the short camping season.
Overall, a very nice campground. We've read many positive comments about Shenango Valley and wanted to give it a try. Glad we did. - The Other John Doe

Updated "weekend sites" with larger, level concrete pads, general landscaping upgraded, most seasonal sites in great condition, fully stocked camp store, large wood fired boiler type heating for the near Large pool, adding considerable new section onto park, promises to be very nice next season or so... - mkekflyers

First time visiting Shenango Valley RV Park. It was spacious, level and just super nice. The grounds are well taken care, the pool was heated and the biggest I have seen in a while. The park is about 90% seasonal, but don't let that scare you away. They are all very friendly and the area that is designated for transit campers is excellent. My only disappointment was I couldn't find the path to the river to go fishing. I highly recommend staying here. - Happy Campers - MD

Friendly staff, all that one expects from the Army Corp parks! Clean site, facilities. Senior pass rate always a welcome value.
OTA and Verizon both good. Stayed two nights and was so pleased I stayed another two.
Will be sure to return yet again. First come sites are great for travelers! - Wicked Witch

This is an old Army Corps of Engineer campground that is in need of upgrading. Of the 321 sites, only 109 have 30 amp power. There is no 50 amp electric or water at the camp sites, however you may be lucky enough to have a site close to a water hydrant that you could tie into with a "Y" or "T" adapter. There is no sewer at any site although there is a dump station with two access points.
The electric sites are situated very close together. The non-electric sites are more spacious, especially those that back up to the water. Those are lovely sites if you want to/can boondock.
If you camp at an electric site, plan on taking leveling blocks with you as many will require side to side leveling. Also you may need blocks for your rear stabilizers because some of the sites "drop off" in the back.
The restrooms/showers are very old and need major refurbishing. The restrooms were clean and serviced regularly, we didn't use the showers.
The rates vary for the campground: Electric-$24.00; Lakefront non-electric-$21.00; Other not-electric0$19.00; and Multiple Family Site-$34.00. They do accept the "Golden Access" and "America the Beautiful Access" cards which gives you a 50% discount.
All in all, it is an okay campground and we will stay there again. - dmoore1108

Many of the best sites are lakefront, but are non-electric sites. Consequently, many generators in these areas, some noisy. No water at many of the sites, so fill up before you go in. 330 sites and one dump station (2 sides), so plan your exit time carefully. Bathrooms really need to be refurbished, and the showers are horrible both in layout and cleanliness. That said, the layout of the campground layout is pretty good and most sites are well spaced. Flat land so good for bicycles. There is no official beach or swimming area, but the water is accessible behind some sites. Very good 4 lane boat ramp. Security is excellent and park rangers are always very close. Verizon coverage = 2 out of 5 stars. Several local TV stations available. All electric sites have a GFCI breaker on the power pedestal, which has been a problem for some around the campground. Seems like the GFCIs disagree with surge suppressors. - Bama Camper
