“Open, Airy Campground Along Beach”

Reviewed Jul 19, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a really beautiful, decently laid out campground set along a beachy shore of lake Erie.

Choice between either 50A/Sewer/Water or 30A only. Sites are solidly laid asphalt. Some are more level than others, but all can be worked with. Firepits and picnic tables at each site, and most are spaced about 50ft on each side from your neighbor.

Bathrooms/showers are well kempt, but if mayflies are out then you'll be showering/pooping with them.

Speaking of mayflies - they live here. The make love with other mayflies here. Then they die here. Nature.

Beach is un-gaurded but open for swimming. There are miles of paved walking/biking/running trails throughout the park and extending from the park. Playground is nice, but is in the day-use area. There is a paved path from the playground to the campground - it's not far from the lower numbered sites.

Firewood is for sale here, and camphost will lend you lawn games if you desire. Rangers host twice daily kids activities in the summer.

The park is surrounded in the distance by 'cloud makers' (energy plants of varying sorts). It's kind of neat, and is possibly what keeps the beach area of the lake warm? I'm not Neil DeGrasse Tyson, so don't trust me on that - but the lake was a nice, warm temp when we were here in late July.

The fees of this (and most) State Park are a bit obnoxious. There is a daily vehicle rate that you must pay for your rig of $9/day you are here (on top of price of site). If you are towing a vehicle there is a flat rate $7/entire stay. There is an online reservation fee ($8). We easily extended our stay by a day without any additional fees by going to the campground/ranger office - staff was super nice.

Verizon and AT&T both work well here.

Overall Rating

Nice state park. No shade, sits right on the lake. Just do not come during may fly season.
