We love KOA. My kids love all the fun things they have to do to the point we have to fight with our kids to get thwm to leave camp to go to cedar point.

Way too loud - the constant cacophony of trains and car alarms and other campers partying to all hours - didn't sleep a wink.

Very enjoyable visit. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Enjoyed breakfast at Pete's Treats on our last morning. Food was good and staff was very friendly.

We had a great stay.

We come here all the time. This time i was very upset. The people behind us were loud, drinking all night and their dog was off its leash and was wondering into my site all night and ate my left overs. Had to call the office. Very upset.

This isn't the third or fourth time we have been there we love it always quiet, staff was very friendly this time, I even meet the General Manager Alex he was very kind!! The bathrooms and showers was very clean!!! The only think I was upset about is I was told there was only one camp site available and there was a lot empty the night we stayed!! But other than that we will be returning very soo

Very nice place was very pleased.

Our campsite had a ton of holes spread around the area and made it very uncomfortable for tent sleeping, the spaces were small and very close together. We actually ended up having to switch sites because somebody else was in ours. Apart from that, great stay. The park was quiet and convenient

It's a great place to go for kids. Don't expect a great night of sleep, the Park was crowded and the train is very close. Despite that, it's an awesome location and very close to Cedar Point.

Loved it. Excellent!

facility is nice, not much sleep the 1st night, due to the nearby train line, also not happy at hearing kids playing basketball till close to 11 pm the 1st night and till 10:30 the next night, overall nice experience otherwise, with places to go and see like cedar point and the islands.

The campground is a really nice place to stay we love it there and everyone is so friendly the best place ever
Jun 12, 2017
It's a good campground and very close to cedar point!

The tent sits have a lot of gravel makes it hard to put stakes down for tent.
Jun 11, 2017
Don't move the fire rings!!! I feel a verbal inform of the new rules would have been nice as not everybody Read's the campground map when they've stayed previously. This cost me $20 as I moved the ring because it was located on the edge center of our site next to our neighbors tent, they would not give a refund & insisted that I should have known even though they didn't communicate it efficientl

This KOA was friendly and clean with some nice amenities. BUT, I chose a KOA because in the past when I have stayed at one the rules were strictly enforced. This time I stayed during a motorcycle rally and assumed it would be kept quiet at night. This was farther from the truth. Screaming, yelling and revving engines continued until about 3am. No sleep for 2 days means I was not very happy.


Unfortunately your stay with us was during Ohio Bike Week.We have had on our web page that this specific weekend was going to be crazy and loud. We have over 300+ bikers staying with us that weekend,its very hard to control everyone.We explain during reservation/check its crazy. Apologies GM

There was zero control of "bike week". We had minimal hours of sleep (3 AM to 6 AM) due to the excessive noise which was unaddressed by security and management.


We express how crazy bike week gets each season to all of our campers, we have over 300 bikers stay with us. We have had a warning up on our web page explaining how it is during that time. We also inform our campers at check in. Unfortunately it is Ohio Bike Week. Sorry you had a bad experience GM

Was wonderful will come back
Jun 06, 2017
very nice people, close to cedar point, serves decent food at reasonable prices/hours along with other things needed for camping. clean bathrooms as long as bugs don't take over but that is nature! didnt hessitate to give us another camp site when we requested. all in all will be our spot instead of the outrageous hotels and motels around.

Cut those cotton trees down...besides that it was great.
Jun 05, 2017
Staff were friendly and accommodating, campground was clean and up to par. We will be returning and recommend to others in the area to visit
Jun 05, 2017
stayed here many times. Was not informed that quiet hours would not be enforced during bike week. Little to no sleep Friday night because of the noise until after 3am. not happy at all with this koa


During Memorial Day weekend it kicks off the first week of Bike Week for our town If you have stayed with us before then you know it gets a little loud on both of those weekends. I do apologize if the noise was more then you expected, we do try to inform our campers. GM

Door knob missing on bathroom door. Had moved Fire rings to grassy area in center of camp site not convenient at all quiet time not enforced. front gate was not staffed


Our shower houses do not have doorknobs?? Not sure what you mean?? Fire rings are placed with more then enough room to place your tent.sites are 30x30?? Huge area to set up and have a fire?? The last week of bike week is crazy for us, we have had on our web page since Jan that its loud. GM

First I didn't get my spot. I was given a bigger spot [I guess it was] with no tree. Every time i would go to the little store got no service. There was 5 people working the counter and I still waited 10 minutes. I was the only one in there. The paper towels either didn't work or didn't have any in there. Now let's talk about how the bathrooms never got cleaned.worse it's been.


It was explained during the reservation that we had made our electric sites bigger which changed the area from what we have had in the past.With the amount of campers we host each bikeweek its very difficult to keep up with over 300+ campers.I had day/night bathroom cleaners.Need cleaner campers.

I'm a consistent koa camper. Love it. I will never come back for bike week. I k ow I was told sound ordinances wasn't in effect but I didn't know that meant at 2am they would be revving their was horrible. I expect music and parties but not the loud motors for no reason. Very displeased


We have over 300+ bikers (all on motorcycles) staying with us. Our gate is open 24/7 access so campers can come and go as they please. We try to stop burn outs and what not but bikers will be bikers. Sorry you had a bad stay, we try to inform all our non biker campers its not a good weekend. GM

The camping is good. Clean facilities and nice spacious tent sites. Downsides are the train tracks right behind the campground with trains running all night and sounding their horns very loudly. Also the quiet time is not really enforced. But if you do not mind the noice it is a nice camping with a nice pool and jumping pillow and lots to do for the kids.

I like KOA campgrounds. At this one, staff was friendly, easy going and humorous. It was a good overnight stay.

It was very nice, but very cramped. The people next to us were slightly parked on our lot and you felt like you were on top of the people next to you.

Third time staying here and it was great as usual. Fair prices, helpful staff and clean facilities. The tent sites by the Bay offer a great view in the evening. There were a lot more people going in and out of that area this year and walking through our campsite but nothing KOA can do about that. We always stay here Memorial Day weekends and go to Cedar Point so we will return next year.

Need to do better with the security. They get lazy in the late night hours. They act like they are to scared to do anything.
May 29, 2017
Campground staff was friendly and helpful, bathrooms had some bugs but no more than to be expected camping on the lake. Overall great experience and will definitely be back.
May 29, 2017
The only issue is I got my spots a month or more in advance and when I got there I was moved and not next to my kids! They tried to fix but my kids got stuck as they got there first and took what was given and it was hard to get close with my rig not sure why I couldn't get what I was told and reserved and paid a beposit for ? Maybe next time!
May 23, 2017
Great camp site. Nice facilities
May 22, 2017
We were promised and reserved a site with hammock capabilities on the bay. When we showed up we were informed the bay is closed until after Memorial Day and received a treeless site. We then had to do the work of finding an open site with trees ourselves

This is the only campground we will stay at when in sandusky. We have stayed here for years and will continue to so so.
May 18, 2017
Very good. Nice employees. Right down street from cedar point.
May 15, 2017
It went well except for all the goose poop.
Jan 05, 2017
Excellent staff!!😊 We will definitely be back!

Girls in office were super nice and helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer, but had to get back to work.
Nov 10, 2016
The campgrounds were nice and well kept. We enjoy the fall camping so appreciated the extended season. The kids liked the playground and the pedal cars.
Oct 29, 2016
Very good. I have stayed a few times. Very good price and a great value. Close to many things and quiet at night. I will definitely return and have recommended to many family and friends.

Very nice campground. The door on the men's rest room closed kind of hard which kept it open during cold weather.
Oct 18, 2016
A little noisy because we were near a train track but other than that - super clean campsites and bathrooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. VERY family friendly environment. We will definitely stay again.
Oct 17, 2016
Everything was great, the only thing we didn't like was how close it was to the railroad tracks.
