The reason for the low ratings is for the noise factor. If you're looking for a quiet night's sleep after a long day of traveling, don't stay here. The campground is right across the street from the railroad tracks. We were awakened hourly thru the night by train horns. To top that off, one of the seasonal campers across the street from us started his motorcycle & let it run for 15 minutes.

From check-in to check out the trip was amazing! Everyone we talked to were awesome. The only complaint I had was too much air freshener in the cabin, but other then that we will be coming back again for sure!!!

Only issue was that our key to cabin would not work. They had to put in a new handle and the wait.... Uggg. But clean friendly people

The manager Liz went above and beyond for our family. Cabin was very clean and well maintained. Other staff was friendly and my kids loved the playground. Definetly will be back with them next season.

We only did an overnight en route to Wisconsin. Facility was clean. Looks like a great location for anyone going to Cedar Point Amusement Park. Weekend of Oct 14th was Civil War reenactment and they started before daybreak, in beknownst to a lot of guests. Dog did not like it.

Very pleasant and felt welcomed

We really liked the patio and fire ring. We didn't like the train and the early morning sound of guns going off.

Very nice campground. Good staff

The whole reason for our trip was to go fishing. We chose this site to camp at because when i called to ask about the bay shore area i was told we could get back there to fish. When we got there and walked back the whole area is over grown to where you can not fish at all. We had to drive 10 minutes every day to go fishing. Would greatly suggest cleaning up the bay area. We were disappointed.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for the fishing problem.We sit on a wet lands that is owned by Metro Parks.We have no control over Lake growth.We are working with Metro Parks to better control the Phragmites which are an invasive reed plant that grows everywhere on Lake Erie.Yes you can fish from our bay view area but we are not a advertised fishing destination.We have close by fishing spots around us.

Stayed one night. Level pull through with full hookups. Large park but they parked us next to all the permanent/seasonal campers and there was only 1 bathhouse. Large window on bathhouse door with no curtain so you could see right into the bathroom. Overpriced for what we got. There was a walking path that went nowhere. Camp located next to swampy area rather than lake itself.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

During this time of the year we have little to now one staying with us during the weekday. We have 2 boathouses open in each section of the campground. This first row is the closest to the facilities and we had little to no campers that weekday.Our seasonal section is located in the front area and is not an eye soar, not sure what the problem was since they are only here on the weekends? GM

Great time. Small mix up on my site but all in all a great place
Oct 11, 2017
Such a great campground and friendly staff - we will come back year after year ! The bathroom were so clean and the grounds were kept clean as well! Be proud of this KOA !
Oct 11, 2017
We had good time there. Wish some of the things you didn't have to pay so much extra for. Also wanted a list of prices for our next visit and they would not give it to me. I understand that they can change, but just wanted to know a ball park figure! Do they change that much?? Sites are a little close, but now know which sites to ask for. Nice place though... Close to everything!

Very nice cabins, fit our needs perfectly. Clean and updated.

Nice campground but pull through spots are way too close together.
Oct 11, 2017
Staff was nice, bathrooms were clean, price was affordable, and it was very close to cedar point. However the amenities didn't compare to the other KOA's we have stayed at.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you feel this KOA does not compare.Our season is from Memorial Day to Labor day when we are super busy.During the Oct time we are only active on the weekends and 90% of our campers go to Halloweekends at Cedar Point. We have activities,pumpkin painting,family movie night,ice cream social,pedal cart rentals and more for any campers staying with us. Once again sorry for your bad experience. GM

Loud train ever hour of the night so it was impossible to sleep. Front desk staff was very lackluster and didnât look like that had any desire to be there at all. Would not recommend.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for the bad stay. Unfortunately we do not have any control over the train for that we do apologize. Once again sorry for the bad experience. GM

We were able to get our 82 year old parents to come out for the weekend they had a wonderful time. The 2 gals that ran the train were such a blessing came to our cabin picked up our folks and took them on a tour of the campground. It meant the world to them and to us. Thank you for all your efforts to make their weekend something special. The Cromwell family.

The price was reasonable and the staff were friendly. BUT a number of us got some sort of insect bites in the night which were on parts of our bodies that remained covered with bed clothes. Sever small black bugs were found in R 4 cabin and our son identified them as bed bugs. We did alert the staff of this.... the problem seems to have been located in the bunk bed rooms.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for the bad experience.We do have a company that comes out and investigates when this happened.I have asked my staff about a report of activities that weekend and none was found or reported by guests? Not saying you didn't report it but once I found out it was addressed.We will look into this claim to find out what happened. GM

Reserved cabin for 4, were told it had microwave, we planned and brought homemade food, found there was not a microwave. We let office know we had asked when booking. Office really went out of there way, upgraded to a fantastic cabin. Made the start of our trip, sleeping arrangements sooooo much better. Fantastic people! Thank you so very much!

It was an amazing stay! We had a last minute reservation made for our sons 9th birthday party and it was all amazing! Everyone was very nice they went above and beyond expectations and the park was awesome our son and every other kid in that Campground loved it. We will definitely be coming back next year we cannot wait!

We stayed in one of the full cabins, it was dirty, musty and very uncomfortable. It was backed up to a very loud road. The staff was not the most plesent bunch and overall probably the worat koa i have ever stayed at. I will never go back to this onr again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you had a bad stay with us. Our housekeeping staff works hard and does an amazing job. If you had a problem with your accommodations please notify the front desk so we can help or find a solution to fix the problem or request. Once again sorry for the bad experience. GM

We had a mouse in our cabin and the staff called maintenance and took them over an hour to come take care of it and they didn't offer us anything . I am debating if I want to stay here anymore because the staff didn't seem to care . Very upset with the staff . Glad to know the priority that we were on the bottom and could have gotten sick because of the mouse

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for the bad experience. Sorry it took what seemed like forever but our maintenance had a few other camper complaints he was fixing at the time.During that time gap while maintenance was pre occupied we went out and got traps to address the problem since this was the first time we had a problem like this occur.The little field mouse was caught.Everyone is a priority and we address everyone.GM

Site 227 was decent with paved patio. But not much shade at all. Bathrooms need attention. They were not clean. Also could use updating. The girls in office could be more friendly and informative about activities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry for your bad experience with us. We had a very wet and rainy weekend and its hard to keep up on all the floor and mud being tracked in every time someone walks in. Our bathroom staff works hard to keep up. I understand your concerns and they will be addressed. Sorry for the bad experience. GM
