Typical troubles of an overcrowded campground. Showers were cold, bathrooms were dirty and run down from overuse. Campsites are packed in like cordwood. This state park campground could be one of the best if they cut the number of sites in half. Until they do, I won't be back. Which means I won't be visiting it again because they won't... More

My large family (8 adults and 10 kids) has been camping annually at East Harbor for the last five years. After years of tent camping, this year we rented the two camper cabins. The cabins were clean and perfectly-suited for our family. They are air conditioned, which was absolutely wonderful as the temperatures reached the mid-90s and very humid. The... More

The sites are big enough for a camper and a tent. Our family usually gets 8-10 sites that back up to each other. We have RV's. campers and tents, all... More

I've not been overly impressed with other Lake Erie beaches Ive visited. But This was quite a surprise. Very nice beach and swimming area. We'll be back soon.

We drove here after The Safari Drive Through. The park is free entry. Beach on Lake Erie. Shallow water for long way out from shore. Water pretty warm. Great modern bath house to change and outdoor sprinklers to help get rinse sand off.

We arrived after heavy rain and many sites were wet. You stop at the camp store and they send you to look at sites and come back with your choices. This worked well. You can reserve on line for an $8 fee, but since we could see that there were lots of sites, we did not make advance reservations. There... More

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.
