“Better suited to smaller rigs, odd setup”
Found this campground reviewed on another site, but the reviews missed a few things. I only found one area with small, blue signs with an arrows pointing to 'camping'. The camping area is on the left hand side of the road in a clearing with numerous large trees, past a few private residences. Trees have been trimmed to allow taller rigs, but placement is problematic when towing a car. There is a small defined road leading to site "1" (sign mounted on telephone pole, next to power outlet). I couldn't find any other electric boxes mounted on anything in the immediate area, so only one site has power. There is another sign on pole advising fee for electric hookup is $10 which must be paid in a box at the restrooms???....I didn't see any restrooms on the way in to this point in the park, and wasn't going to unhook toad to hunt for them....I ended up unhooking anyway because I couldnt get enough of a circle thru the trees to get pointed back out the road in (didn't want to run diesel pusher over grassy open area. The 'electric' consists of a household 110volt dual plug, covered inside a weather proof box....no breaker switch, so you would be plugging in 'hot'...not a risk I would take. There is also no way I would string a jumble of plug adapters from my 50 amp coach to a probable 15 amp connection...'hot'. I opted to run genset to keep batteries happy. There are frost-free spigots x 2 in the immediate area, but signage advises water is non-potable....odd? What ELSE would you want a spigot in a campground for? There was no dump station that I could see...but I didn't unhook the car to do a tour of the park. With signs indicating 'camping' and no public restrooms you must assume that anyone setting up in a tent will be depositing human excrement in the bushes....ick. I couldn't find any more information online with the city that administers this park either (map, facilities available, fees).
There are mounds of dog doo EVERYWHERE, in spite of the doggie bag dispenser near a shaded bench. Made me GLAD I'm not in a TENT! The plus features of this site?
near Oberlin (3 miles east, all kinds of services in town, gas, food, auto repair, etc.), signage to find the park off highway is good, but once off highway, confusing about where the park is vis a vis private residences. The trees offer protection from the vicious wind....and, FREE, if you don't use their elec. hookup.
11Blade would stay here again
