Campground Reviews

Jul 21, 2015
Was very unhappy with sight size. Not really big on a 5 foot wide lot and then another camper right there. Too cramped for what we are use to. It's good for an overnight stop on way through but not for a week stay like we did. The people were great that work there so that's why you got the 2nd star.

Fun weekend. But camper sites are very close together. I will say the bathroom and showers were clean. The water was hot and great water pressure.
Jul 21, 2015
Awesome.

Loved everything about it except that our pull through site was no bigger than a postage stamp. Staff was great. Everyone was friendly.

Too crowded. Electrical outlet did not work on 50 amp and we had to use 30 a.m., which was insufficient for our coach. Kids were left unattended running around in the road. Cars were parked in ways that prevented passage of big rigs. Not the best KOA we have statyed in, and we stay in a lot.

We were told they had cable TV. They did not. They said they were working on it, but we were told by a couple of permanent residents that they saw no sign of working on it. The office staff was probably the least knowledgeable staff we have ever encountered at a KOA. Every answer was, I don't know."

we arrived late and left early so we are not able to provide a honest assessment.

Nice family. We were on new site .. Older camp sites need work , some trees of concern without leaves.
Jul 21, 2015
Our first two sites assigned to us were completely under water. Seemed weird that they wouldn't have had a listing of the sites available. When we finally got one, it was a mud pit. An annoyance, but not really the fault of the KOA. I believe we should have been offered a discount as the entire campground was flooded.

I give a 3 star because they did upgrade. I stay here every year regardless because of the kitchen and such. But last year they were getting bad. I seen this year the one I stayed in was upgraded. It did flood. And for 2 years in a row... we went to make breaky in the mornin and no gas for stove. BUMMER But we will be staying again.

1.)Very noisy, trains & whistles constantly, especially at night. 2.)RV sites very close to each other, canopies almost touch each other. 3.)Quiet hrs start at eleven, which really means midnight till everyone quiets down. Asphalt is very narrow, maybe 7-8 ft.,can get muddy. For the money we paid, will never visit this KOA again.

The sites are too tight. My hook ups were on the site next to me, very disturbing, no privacy. People were not friendly or inviting on check in and were not at all informative about the grounds. I had to find everything on my own without staff help. Permanent sites were loud and obnoxious and inappropriate language towards children. this is not all but enough to say never again
Jul 21, 2015
For the most part it was nice. Friendly staff, clean nice capground, etc. Only bad part was the one maintenance guy who was cleaning the firepits Sunday morning kept harrassing my girlfriend . we ended up checking out and leaving a day early because of it

Quiet. Because its away from the hyway

We had a nice site with patio. I would like to see them add a grill along with the picnic table. Biggest problem we had was that there was NO cable TV service all week. Apparently Sandusky/KOA were attempting to upgrade to digital, but have not had cable TV (analog or digital) since May. Luckily there was good WIFI service at our site. The trains are non-stop 24 hours per day, bring your ear plug

The staff was awesome and accommodating! There was so much for the kids to do that even though it rained everyday for the 8 days we were there, (not all day though), the kids always had something to do :-)
Jul 20, 2015
Very nice cabin and nice campground as well. We stayed here for a weekend with our kids and enjoyed our trip.
Jul 20, 2015
Park model cabins are bit disappointing & need updating inside. Futon almost not usable it is too soft.(we used an air matrs to make usable 16" tube tv.First cabin didnt even have curtains on bdrm windows. Resv 3 bdrm cabin and settled for 2 bdrm in better cond. The grounds are nice & being updated for tow alongs but attn needs to be on park models first. cust srv not as high as at other KOAs

The staff was friendly the grounds were very neat and kept clean showers were clean just an all-around great experience we stayed there for five days will be back next year thank you

The campsites were way to close with little privacy. The camper next to us had a slide out and took a portion of our ground to accommodate the slide out. Way too cramped
Jul 20, 2015
Trop bruyant, pas de respect sur le volume de la musique des voisins : pas de patrouille, et ce, sans parler du train qui passe sans arrêt : jamais je ne retournerai à cet endroit. De plus, terrain totalement boueux....
Jul 20, 2015
Only thing: please enforce your quiet time. Few people needed a reminder of common courtesy.
Jul 20, 2015
Cabins were well priced clean and comfortable. Staff was nice . Prices were great
Jul 20, 2015
Stayed in a 6 person cabin. I thought it was very reasonably priced and right by Cedar Point.
Jul 20, 2015
I understand that the site I was on was new and still under construction, however I did not expect it to have a mud hole on it. I spoke to management and it was fixed. All other amenities were great as expected at a KOA.
Jul 20, 2015
Ok place, but expensive for what it is. Some of the staff needs customer service lessons.
Jul 20, 2015
The stay was comfortable and great. The store was well stocked and had everything we forgot. They seemed to have a problem with the ATM but the staff were very apologetic and reassured us they were in the process of fixing it.
Jul 20, 2015
A great place to go , very clean and family oriented
Jul 19, 2015
Staff was disorganized. We paid for a full hookup but did not have sewer. If you are looking to overnight, this KOA is fine, but I would not recommend for an extended period.
Jul 19, 2015
Staff was unhelpful and full hook up site we had was lowest and underwater the entire week we were there. Moving to an open dry site was not an option. Don't stay here. Sites are extremely close. Just not happy with experience at all. The next time we are in Sandusky we will leave the 5th wheel at home and stay in resort.

More of a trailer park than a campground.
Jul 19, 2015
Great price, great location. Much better staying here than our experience several years back staying at a cheap hotel in the area while visiting Cedar Point.

When your company lists all the amenities a campground has on your website, it is expected those are provided. There was no cable TV. Management gave some BS excuse, but there was none provided or available. Wifi was expected it either did not work at all or was so spotty it was useless. When my wife needed to work she was unable to. Lastly, the sites are WAY too close together.
Jul 19, 2015
Our full hook up site was very narrow and uneven. The only place to put our picnic table so it would be level was up against our neighbor's camper. We could only use the fire pit with our awning in. The bathroom nearest to our site was not very clean and the entrance is shared with a trailer park. It is also near a train track. We have stayed at several KOA's and this was our worst experience
Jul 19, 2015
Cabins w/ three tents!? Too crowded, not enough amenities per camp space.
Jul 19, 2015
It was a very nice place. A lot of things to do for the kids, which gave us adults plenty of quiet time.
Jul 18, 2015
need more organized activities for kids and familie.

Our stay at KOA was great. When we checked in out tent site was flooded and the staff accommodated our needs and let us choose a site that was dry. The bathrooms were nice and clean. We did hear trains through out the night but they didn't really disturb our sleep. We had three small children with us and they had a blast fishing in the catch and release pond and riding their bikes on the trail.
Jul 18, 2015
RV sites are too tight (too close to one another). Restrooms/shower houses were clean and nice but the camp store, buildings and grounds were rundown. Biggest issue was the noise at night with the nearby railroad tracks. Did not get much sleep.....trains ran and sounded their horns about every 20 minutes.
Jul 18, 2015
We've stayed at numerous KOA's. This is by far the largest one. While I appreciate the security, they don't do much about enforcing quiet hours. The drunks fighting from 730pm until 2am was pleasant. When they were not fighting, they were playing music.
Jul 18, 2015
The closeness to çedar point makes this koa extremely convenient. Although not one of the newer koas we have stayed at, it was clean and the staff was friendly. The small 1 room park model cabin served our needs. We had 2 adults and 1 child. I wouldn't recommend any more than that. The only problem with the cabin was the the main breaker popped repeatedly.
Jul 18, 2015
Our family really enjoyed the new deluxe cabins that the Sandusky location had to offer. Some housekeeping items would have made our stay even more enjoyable. The fridge had water in both fruit drawers and the coffee maker had coffee grinds from the previous habitants. Every fire pit should have a grate. With there being no oven, it's nice to have the fire pit as an option to cook on. Thanks.
Jul 17, 2015
Location was very close to Cedar Point. The park is old and is not wearing it's age very well. You can tell that it was once a great place.
Jul 17, 2015
Awesome campground,we really enjoyed our stay.Staff was friendly,and professional.

This camper comment has been removed by KOA due to profanity.
Jul 17, 2015
We realize campground is under construction but area we were in was not and with the rain we had the water was ankle deep making it difficult to get into and out of unit and vehichle,
Jul 17, 2015
Location great. First use toilet backed up. Quickly and appropriately attended to by maintenance. Front desk girl excellent! (young blonde). No table and chairs in 3 bedroom cabin for 4 teens to play games. Brought us a card table and chairs! :) Only thing, blanket smelled strong of cigarette smoke. We were very happy campers!
Jul 17, 2015
The campground was very clean, we moved sites on our 2nd day, because we found a site that was higher & had gravel & grass, so there was less mud.
