Our rate reflects the golden access discount. This is a popular campground with many retirees staying the full 14 days. Some of the sites are waterfront, and reserved well in advance. There are 2 shower houses, the one closest to the fee booth is the one we used, and very modern, clean and immaculate. We checked out the other one and it was rather skanky. We really enjoyed riding the bike trail-- rode down to the South Sandusky Campground, the beach and the marina. The bike trail wound through the woods on nice new, smooth cement. We enjoyed our stay immensely and will return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
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. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park shows signs of wear and not as well kept as we have experienced at other COE grounds. Restroom very dated, no lighting, excessive leaves, limbs, muddy entrance to site. Probably a result of the stormy spring but still on the edge as far as being an attractive place to camp. Won't return. Plenty of shade and nice lakeside view. Full hookup @ $12 with/Golden Age access was hard to beat. Tried to get a site w/SW clearance for satellite. The lady assigning sites said she did not know South from East. Only here two days, so ended up with no satellite. Dinner at Windows restaurant at the State Park Lodge was a very good meal. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rend lake is the first Corps of Engineer campground that we have stayed in. Our site was right on the lake and it was beautiful. This was a very well-maintained campground. It has a very nice bike trail (paved) that was completed in 2005. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
