When we got here we had to park across a busy 4 lane and walk across the street to check in. Per their instructions on the phone. Check in was easy and Bill their employee was helpful finding our lot. Getting out of it is another thing entirely. There's no where to park the tow vehicle and we were told... More

I've been staying at Sara's every summer for the past 10 years. First, with my parents and brother, and now with my own family. While it can be crowded and occasionally, not the quietest place, nothing beats being able to step out of your camper in the morning to the sound of waves and seagulls. The beach is kept in... More

Sara's on the Beach is a one-of-a-kind place, and an incredible place! It can get quite crowded on sunny warm summer weekends, but that almost makes all the better, because the people who camp here are the friendliest campers to be found anywhere! Read through the other reviews to get a feel for the place; they all seem pretty accurate,... More

On the beach. A bit dated but staff is very nice. Great place to start biking at Presque isle state park. Accommodated our 38foot motor home well. Difficult to make a reservation as first come first served. But overall recommend at this time of year.

We camped on the beach in our 22 ft. camper van and had a great time. We were able to hook up to electricity and water, on the beach. We stayed for 2 nights during the week before Labor Day. It was cool and cloudy, so crowds were not an issue. I am sure that the holiday weekend was a... More

Have stayed here a few times both with just some girl friends and another time with my sister, 2 young nieces and another friend and her family. It is family friendly, well maintained beach. You are in close proximity to Waldemeer Park and Presque Isle. We loved that we were right on the beach and when you wake up there... More

We stayed Wed and Thursday nights on the lake side at the beach. Camping sites were not designated, but at mid week we were able to find room for our 3 tents and supplies. A large picnic table and fire ring was available for our use. Though in close proximity to other campers, our experience was delightful. We arrived a... More

My boyfriend and I camp a lot. This was a really unique camping experience. We really enjoyed it. Some of our highlights were the cleanliness of the place, helpfulness of staff, value of the overnight stay. You can set up shop wherever you want on the beach, have a bonfire and have drinks. A couple things to consider: - this... More

Sara's is a nice little campground. Well maintained. Nice restroom facilities. Management and staff friendly. Neighbors were causing problems at about 2:30 in the morning and staff immediately showed up and handled professionally. Only downside is not being able to make weekend reservations. If you ever get the chance to tent on the beach try it, it is fun.

They cram everyone onto the beach. I was kicked in the head while sleeping, people fell into my tent and knocked it over. I also got robbed while here. They didn't want to do anything another camper who was also robbed had to call the police themselves... the police were very helpful but the people who run saras campground told... More
