We were there mid-week, so everyone had enough room for their tents, vehicles, picnic tables, and fire rings in one row-nobody on top of each other. I was worried before arrival, because you can't reserve a spot, and I had read that it gets very crowded. I was very glad that there were extra fire rings/wheel rims around, because we... More

Sara's Campground was a great experience for us. This was our first time there, first time in Erie and first time sleeping right on the beach! The campground was very clean, as well as the bathrooms. They were cleaned regularly. The showers had great water pressure (ladies). I crossed paths with several of the staff and they were all nice... More

We stayed on the beach in a tent. Overall we were very happy with our stay here. The people were friendly, the location was good, and the view was great. Bathrooms were clean or at least cleaned regularly. The noise from the park that sits adjacent dies off well before the quiet hours of the campground itself anyway. The only... More

Sara’s at the foot of Presque Isle State Park in Erie Pennsylvania is a mini-empire. If location means everything for a business this place has it in spades. On the west side of the boulevard is a beach-front campground with a secondary to the east fronted by a series of fast food eateries on the way into the State Park.... More

This campground has very few overnight sites as most are seasonal. Check-in process was strange at best since you need to cross the street to register at another section of the campground. Sites are on the small side and close together but ok for an overnight stay. Friday night fireworks were a treat. What this campground has to offer is... More

We found Sara's Campground on Passport America.  On that site, it stated that the PA discount was available as of Labor Day.  When we arrived, we were informed by the office manager to setup and then come back to pay for our site.  Upon doing this, we were informed that they are not accepting PA until 9/15 because they are...

The beach was packed solid even though the manager told us it was only 40% full. There were campfire rings everywhere but noware to have a fire. When we told him we wanted a campfire, he was very rude and said to go elsewhere he didnt care. Theres a non campfire area and he told us to move the ring... More

We have been coming here for years, usually in April to take advantage of the BOGO deal. It is made up of mostly seasonal sites, but has several overnight sites also. Every overnight site has a nice level concrete pad, picnic table, and fire ring.
