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.

Every year my fellow friends and their kiddos get together and pick out a spot on Sara's beach. Its a first come first serve type of situation, so early weekdays are better. Its nice to go to bed each night and wake to the sound of the waves on the lake! The sunsets are second only to the ones at... More

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.
