nice place no problems
Aug 21, 2017
This was our 1st camping trip in our new pop up. We had an Amazing time at KOA! The staff were Awesome! Very friendly n helpful. The kids activities were so cool, my kids loved it. Playground n pools were clean. We stayed in the very back of campground n that was perfect for us, gave us privacy. The only complaint would b that the back bathroom needs to b cleaned/checked more often. Wil come again

It's a nice KOA as far as the pool, playground and children activities, but it is a loud KOA. Train going through blaring horn at all hours, people coming and going until very late, staying up and playing music and talking very loudly until very late, If you don't mind noise, then this KOA is good.

Sorry for the bad experience. Unfortunately we do not have control over the trains off property. We do have quite a few Cedar Point campers who stay with us and the park does not close till midnight and with traffic it can take up to 30min or more to make it out of the parking lot. We also have late arrivals because of Cedar Point as well. Once again sorry for the bad experience. GM

I enjoyed but my sister was upset that you didn't have grills to cook on and we had to supplyit

Sites were small, the pads were worn and unlevel. I must say that I am surprised this place is operating under the KOA. We will not be returning to this campground. Need to do some maintenance and clean this place up.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you feel so strongly about our facilities and campground. We work very hard to keep our campground clean and family friendly. We have bigger sections in our campground that may not have been available during your stay. Once again sorry for the bad experience. GM

The smell of gas or asphalt in the middle of night was so bad we finally packed up and left at 5am. Definitely was not in the plans to leave so early.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A few miles away is a quarry, Sometimes in the early morning you can catch a smell. Sorry that you felt is was so bad you had to leave. We can assure you it was not gas. Once again sorry for the bad experience. GM

There was a list if activities that were suppose to take place for. 5-8 pm. Only 3 of them on the list were done and it ended at 7. Also I was unaware there was a train track within 100yards of the campsite. Who puts a campground by a train track???? The pools were dirty/cloudy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our activities list can change depending on the attendance of campers, Family movie night started early do to the request of other family's attending the activities. We had rockets launching and other great activities going on that weekend. We are a 50 year old campground and we have little control of what goes around us.Unfortunately we have no control over the train that runs off our property.GM

We only stopped overnight. This appears to be a nice campground. The sites are very tight as we were unable to open our living room slide due to a tree.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a space issue, I am sure if not for the one night stay we could of moved you to a better location to better suit your slide out. We do have bigger spots. Sorry for the bad experience. GM

This campground is well kept and very clean. All of the fun features like the pool, rental pedal carts, volleyball court, etc. are well maintained and in working order. Over the past couple years, some of the areas where cabins were added are getting a little crowded and in those areas can ruin the camp feel a bit. The workers are all super nice and accommodating.
Aug 21, 2017
My only complaint is how close you are to other people.
Aug 21, 2017
Nice place to camp. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Our stay was very enjoyable. Will definately return!
Aug 21, 2017
Loud trains all night long, loud campers all night long, everything else was great.

We do apologize for the trains but we do not have any control over them. GM

We had a very nice time at your campground. There were things for the grand kids to do. Employees were very nice..
Aug 20, 2017
I really enjoy coming to the KOA in Sandusky. We have been doing this for about 8 years. The new pool is fabulous. There are a few issue's that come to mind such as the futons that you use for a couch, it would be so much more comfortable to sit down if you could put sofa bed couches in the park model cabins instead plus some fire pits are hard to use because of the closeness to the cabin.
Aug 20, 2017
We had no clue about the train track next to the campground and the horn honking all night long. Not getting enough sleep the first night made the next day hard to do everything we wanted to do since we were so tired. Besides that we thought everything else was awesome and loved the campground. All the employees were very friendly and helpful. Kids loved the crafts the second night and the pools.
Aug 20, 2017
Very clean, the ladies in the office/ front desk area are absolutely amazing, super sweet, and very accommodating. We were there for 4 days (with our small grandson) on a tent site, we made it 1 nite, due to the heat we were miserable!!!! The next day we asked what else they had available with air conditioning on such short notice, they rented us a 2 bedroom park model. It was super nice and clean
Aug 19, 2017
It met all of our expectations. Everybody there was very nice. Would stay there again.
Aug 19, 2017
We all enjoyed our stay and all that was offered for the children. They enjoyed the peddle bikes, the pools, jump pillow and we enjoyed the golf carts ourselves.
Aug 19, 2017
Was a great place as we were on a concrete pad. Needs a few minor repairs. Not all sites would be good if ir rained.
Aug 19, 2017
The TRAIN.... hahaha. Place seemed to have everything. Except hot tub. It was nice stay. Plenty big rv park. Employees were nice.

Location is perfect for cedar point. Only complaint would be the restroom/showers by late afternoon are very wet and dirty because of the pool being right there.
Aug 19, 2017
nice place. Flat sites, Suggest they get CNN on the cable though....MSNBC was of bad color, but present.
Aug 19, 2017
Amazing staff, clean bathrooms, with plenty to do on the campground site. Also best part is your about 3 minutes from cedar point for about half of the cost anywhere else within a 15 minute to cedar point. Will gladly stay again next year on our cedar point trip
Aug 19, 2017
Very disappointing, premium pricing for a very sub par campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a bad stay and missed out on all we have to offer. Activities program, Jump Pillow, Gem Mine, Pedal Cart Rentals, Basket ball, Volley Ball, Ice Cream Social, Family Movie Night. We try to offer a lot of amenities for types of family's. Sorry you missed out on all the fun. GM

The place is just kind of run down. Pool safety gates were broken and open all the time. Desk people not friendly. Loud train runs frequently next to the property- all night long! I was absolutely astonished how much you charged for a bundle of firewood- with no deals for buying multiples. We've stayed at KOA's lots of times and this one just wasn't what we would expect from the KOA brand.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a bad experience with us.The pool gates are being addressed due to the amount of use both pools are getting. Unfortunately we do not have any control over the trains so for that we are sorry. Sorry you feel our wood is over priced but we try and supply a good quality product. Once again we are sorry for the bad experience. GM

it was great that we were so close to Cedar Point. And the bathrooms were bright and clean. However, the noise from the very busy railroad tracks kept us from getting any decent sleep. The streetlights were also too bright, keeping our tent from getting dark while we slept. And quiet hours were not enforced very well. Other campers were noisy.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a bad experience with us. Unfortunately we do not have any control over the train so we are sorry for that. We do have security lights located around the grounds and bath houses for safety reasons so do apologize for that, we have over 450 sites and a very big campground. We always have a few loud campers and security tries hard to address everyone. Sorry for the bad stay. GM

Our family had a great time. Lots of things for the kids to enjoy. Nice and friendly staff. We were near the seasonal campers who were did a great job to make us feel welcome. One thing I would suggest is for someone to lead you to your sights. We did see a few people struggle with getting into some of the sites and a guide would have been a great help.

The park is nice, staff is friendly. The sites are extremely tight, we actually had to be moved because original spot they put us in, there was no way we were fitting in( 40 ft Class A) They were very friendly and moved us without hesitation. It is a nice stop over place, if going to cedar point but wouldn't stay longer than a couple of days. The Wifi is non-exsistent and no dog park.
Aug 18, 2017
This is a large campground with many amenities. Unfortunately, the kids' activities that were scheduled didn't happen on one day because they were short staffed. The site was narrow and a bit tight with our slide out - it was right up against the neighbor's patio. Still, the sites were tidy and nicely prepped for new campers. The bathhouse was clean. It is conveniently located to Cedar Point.

Love the entire stay..staff,grounds. Everything was great my family will return
Aug 18, 2017
Campground was clean and staff was helpful. Pull Through site are long and narrow. We felt like we were in a parking lot. Our visit was scheduled for 5 nights we only stayed four and had 3 different neighbors. They supply a nice plastic picnic tables however, our table was broken on top and hazardous The bay view had nice wooden seats to hang out , view was small due to over growth on lake .

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a bad experience with us.We do have a bigger section with more space but it was not available during the time you stayed with us. We have campers stay 1 or up to 10 day with us so it is not uncommon for campers to come and go on a site throughout the week.We sorry for the table if it was as bad as you were saying we could of switched you out if the front office was notified.

We stayed in one of the cabins, it was very clean and nice and quiet. We enjoyed the pools most everyday, we really enjoyed our stay and plan on coming back again.
Aug 17, 2017
We really liked the staff, ease of parking our trailer, the location that was close to many points of interest. Trailer spot was roomy but we wish we could have been in a location that had some shade. Otherwise, the campground had lots of amenities for families, even though we were a couple of just 2 people. We will recommend your KOA to family & friends.

This is a great place to stay. We didn't have enough time to enjoy all the amenities so we will have to come back!
Aug 16, 2017
Everyone was very friendly, we were there 4 yrs. ago and they have updated since, patio pavers and new swimming pool. On the weekends its very busy and i think they should clean the restrooms twice a day instead of once a day. Over all a great experience, we are looking forward to next year.
