Biggest issue was lack of signage for exit. We went the wrong way and scratched the MH. Site was fine although we couldn't get a DTV connection nor could our friends who were on a nearby site. Not many trees but apparently well placed. - Saltydog44

The roads in the park are gravel and show no signs of being maintained. They are well worn and dusty. The sites are typical KOA, small and tight. it does not appear that the owners are reinvesting and funds to maintain the park. The trees and other plants were taking over, more so than most state parks. Our site had our neighbors septic connection at the bottom of our steps. As an example of how tight they are I could not extend both arms between our RV and the RV adjacent to us. The park did have a host of activities for children, and other social events. Could not connect to WiFi, water pressure was weak, but the power was good. We have a 45 ft 5th wheel, and entering, parking and exiting the park was extremely challenging. We will not return here. - Field Trip

This was a very nice park. We opted for a premiun site which had everything we needed. The campground was very well organized and had plenty to keep you busy. It also had very nice gardening work throughout.
Wifi was very good but the cable did not come in very clear. For the price we would have expected better.
Definitely would stay again. - John Borajkiewicz

We stayed at West Haven while visiting family in Erie. We checked in and were escorted to our site and help setting up was offered, which we appreciated but did not need. The site was a long pull through with plenty of room front and back. Water and electric service was satisfactory, especially during a warm spell, and with no shade at our site made the A/C run a lot. No cable so only local channels over the air. We did hear the highway noise (I-90) at night. The pool was not open yet.
West Haven used to be a trailer park only which the owners are trying to make it known for RV visitors as well. They were building up new sites during our visit, nearly doubling the capacity for RVs. It is a bare bones campground, no frills. Although the staff, Don & Jodie, are very nice and willing to help out in anyway possible. We did extend for another weekend to enjoy the Lake Erie Wine Country Tour! If we stay in the area again we would consider staying again at West Haven. - pfogleboch

The park is nearby the Interstate. We stayed here only one night. The pool was ok. The laundromat was reasonably priced. The staff was very nice. the WiFi signal was good. - Bisan

An older CG with easy access to I-90. Fuel right at exit, but cheaper a couple of exits east. Pulled in for 1 night without a reservation. Staff was friendly and courteous. A decently stocked store in the office building. Pull through with W/E/S. Services worked well. Water had a heavy chlorine smell, but filter dealt with it fine. Site was gravel and pretty level. Plenty long enough. Overnight (and most sites) very close together with just enough room for slideouts. No dedicated pet area. Price reflects off season and seemed a bit high, but very few empty sites attests to the fact that it is not out of line for the area. We would stay here again, but wouldn't drive extra to do it. - BounderPounder

Convenient location, roomy sites, very helpful staff. They were especially helpful after my coach broke down. I would visit here again. Easy access to the State Park. - Buddy Bus

Second year in a row we stayed here in July. Electrical issues again!!! We stayed in the older section of the campground by the cabins. For some reason they have issues with the electric here. Electric shuts off. They first claimed it was Waterford Days. This year there was no excuse as we were here during the week. They said they ordered a transformer but the wrong one. Not really sure what the real story is, other than they have to upgrade in this section. Otherwise it was clean and nice.
Do not stay here during "Roar on the Shore" if you are not into loud motorcycles!!! - HINER

This is a very nice campground approx. 6 miles south of I90 and has direct access to all of the sites in and around Erie. We were there during the Roar on the Shore weekend so it was the holiday rate. Our initial sites on Joe Dr. were in the original section which was very nice and shaded however lacked adequate power measuring 105 volts at the post. The staff was very helpful and relocated our group to another section of the park that did not have power problems. They did their best to keep us as close together as possible. The sites were level and easy to get into. The bath house is nice and clean but incomplete, lacking toilets where there are spaces provided for them. It seemed odd considering how many campers there were around it. Overall very clean and well kept. The staff is friendly and helpful. This campground is continuing to expand and improve. We would stay here again. - Motorman173

Very nice place to stay just outside of Erie. The staff is very friendly and the sites are spaced decently apart from each other. Very to get in and out of. We stayed in site 20 which is 1 of 3 pull through sites they have and it is on a bank so leveling was a challenge but they gave us some blocks to borrow to help us out. - AudiG

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

Sara's has many level paved sites. It is very clean and they had just paved the campground roads prior to our stay. We camped in a 35' RV and there were limited sites that would hold us. - Trinket

Rate was for Passport Amer. Restricted days apply. Wifi is free with coupon (Tengonet). It had low bandwith but it was functional. There seems to be only a few sites for the temporary campers. Maybe 20 or so. Of course the beach is available, but I'm referring to the sites across the street from the beach The main office is across the street a long with the bath house. It's fairly inconvenient but not a deal breaker. Our site (#48) was on a level concrete pad. Electric service was on a shared pedestal. Water & sewer at this site. It's a short walk to the beach and bike path into the State Park. The two restaurants next door are great. I can imagine this place is very busy during the summer with the beach & amusement park in full swing! I doubt I will return but it wasn't because of a bad experience. It was just a bit too crowded even though it was May 1st and cold. - Craig H

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

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

I was very impressed. Friendly attendant, a large pull-through site for our 2 night stay, perfectly level, water at site and a generally friendly, safe, and quiet atmosphere made this a great stop over. One problem-we needed to use our Frank's Autoformer to boost the campground voltage from 99 to 120 to run our A/C safely. Campground abut 15 miles West of Erie. Good Verizon signal in campground for cellphones. - AndersonFamily

OK park. Nice people. Good stopover. Easy to navigate for overnight stay or longer. Things are close. No problems. 50 amps was truly 50 amps, unlike some other recent parks which did not deliver either true 50 or enough actual power (volts) to run the electronics--which can actually kill your appliances if not enough volts! - carnbru

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

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. - Djinfl

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

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.

We camped in a lakefront site for three days and two nights. There was no real distinguishable parking for our RV, except for the ruts in the field from previous campers. All camping sites that I saw were just grass/dirt, which really added to the dirt/etc that we tracked into our rig. The electric was in good condition and looked newer, and the sewer was easy to hook into. The water pressure was very low. The staff were there. I decided to WD40 the swing set, so I could stand to push my daughter on the squeaky thing. The one really outstanding thing about this park is the fact that it is right on Lake Erie. This is stifled by the fact that there are so many weeds on the bank that the lake is unreachable, unless you walk down to the boat ramp. What a shame. My wife informed me that the shower house was a long uphill walk to a total disaster. The bathrooms are just outhouses. Will I go back? Not unless I decide I again want to sit and look at lake Erie from a distance. - Levi Green
