“Didn't want to leave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We stopped here on vacation on our way from Missouri up to Niagara Falls and I am certainly glad we did. I had never visited any of the great lakes and this was a treat. The water was blue and beautiful and the beach was clean. We had a great time and I suggest if you are in the area to stop on by.

“Great Facility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Ohio does a fine job of managing and maintaining its state parks. Geneva State Park is one of my favorites. Located on the shores of Lake Erie, it consists of a lodge with an indoor and an outdoor pool, spa and restaurant, a marina, a guarded beach and a campground. The areas are connected by a paved path like the one on Presque Isle State Park in Erie.

The campground is small and has primitive sites, sites with electric and three sites with electric, water and sewer. In order to get the later, I had to make reservations back in February. Our site was large with a paved pad for the RV, picnic table and truck. The roads throughout the campground are paved as well. Most of the campground is pet friendly. There is one small section where pets are not allowed. Also, pets are can swim in the unguarded part of the beach. Restrooms are scattered throughout the campground. There is only one shower house. The ladies' room has sinks with a large mirror above, three toilets and three showers. It gets a bit cruddy on the weekends. Harp said the men's room is similar. A nice laundry room is in this building too. Ice, snacks and the Cleveland paper can be purchased at the reception building at the entrance to the park.

There is a fee to stay at the lodge, in a cabin or at the campground but no fee to enter the park.
