Several lake front sites available; near a large, beautiful public beach. If staying in the Hickory or White Oak sections, beware that the main bathroom facilities are over a mile away. Excellent biking trail to South Sandusky Campground and on down to the beach. Make reservations well ahead of time for weekends, many sites will fill up with campers and boats / boat trailers for the water recreation.
Electric only sites, but most are big and shaded. Big, beautiful lodge on property with a dine-in restaurant and winery. Lots of hiking trails with beautiful bluff views. Campground is flat, great for small kids riding their bikes. If coming from the west, consider riding the ferry over for a fun experience.
Previous reviews are quite accurate. However, it cannot be stressed enough that there is zero shade. Staying here during summer months would be rough. We stayed during a spring soccer tournament at a complex just two miles down the road - it was perfect for that! The bike path around the lake is great for exercising. If you want to face the lake, study the map closely, we paid the extra $5 per night for a premium site that faced the lake and was right next to the path. It was worth it.
We really got taken by the additional fees at this place. Not only do they charge $4/kid/day extra, they charge an additional "resort" fee. When questioned about this, the check-in staff was apathetic. This place is a beehive of activity though and location is great; 5 miles from Mt. Rushmore and between Hill City & Keystone. We will never stay here again because of the deceptive fee practices, but if you can stomach these fees (especially with kids), you'll most likely enjoy this place. Warning, if you go in the late summer, be prepared to be waken up by Harley's at 6:30 am.
Got lucky getting a spot here as most seemed to be filled with permanent residents. Call ahead on availability, that could save you some time. Ez-on, Ez-off I-70; huge, long sites; don't expect much from the "lake". Lots of shade; not much more than a stopover place.
Great campground if you want a clean, Ez-on, Ez-off place to stay off I-70. Watch out though, they sock it to you for kids charging $3 additional per night per kid and there are no kids activities. Pool is very small. One Bradford Pear Tree was planted at each site about 5 years ago, so don't expect much shade.
