Our 1st time in an Ohio State Park! Very nice and well kept campground. Be careful to pay attention when making reservations...there are sections of the campground where dogs are allowed and not allowed. Luckily, we did not bring our dog with us on this trip...we unknowingly booked the not allowed section, section B (there were violators though and it... More

Beautifully kept state park. Beach was clean and family friendly. The bathhouse was clean and nicely located to beach. We had a quiet and enjoyable afternoon there even though it was a Saturday.

We camped at an electric tent site. Spent most of the day at the beach, and went back the next morning. Campsite was great and staff was friendly, especially with our toddler. Beach was windy the first day but fun anyway. The next day when we returned we were attacked by swarms of insects, but stayed a few hours anyway.... More

I remember when I was a little boy going to east harbor campgrounds in the mid 1960's there was a lot of things to do back then and someday I would love to go back. I remember hanging out with my wonderful father at east harbor even going to the hot showers in the evening, unfortunately my father passed away... More

We enjoy our stay in a full hook-up site. We took in a reptile show in the nature center and made a few purchase from the camp store. The playgrounds could use some updating. My 10 and 12 year old sons enjoyed the swimming in Lake Erie. If you ask me the beach needs cleaned up a little. Over all... More

We visited this beach in August 2014 and I have been meaning to write a review ever since. We had such a great experience, we plan on revisiting this beach in July this year. It is perfect for families with small children, as there is plenty of shallow, calm water areas to play and splash around in. We also found... More

Just went to this park on a whim while visiting the in-laws for a few days over Easter weekend. I needed to get out and walk around a bit, and this fit the bill. I imagine this place is packed with campers, walkers and other visitors in the summer, but in early April I almost had it to myself. I... More

My wife, 1 year old boy and myself visited this beach this past weekend and we were all amazed by how nice it was! My wife is from the Virginia Beach area so she was quite impressed with the waves on Lake Erie. We spent the evening walking along the beach and finding neat little shells. If you are ever... More

This is one of my favorites of all the Ohio state parks. The campground facilities are very nice, camp sites are spacious, and there are many activities within the park. We enjoy biking through the park to the beach are. The location near Lake Erie generally means nice breezes even on hot days. Plenty to do in the area. From... More
