Stopped at this campground to spend a few days visiting friends and relatives in the Cleveland area on our way through on our vacation travel. Very nice clean campground. Able to handle large RV's and motorhomes with ease. Only water and electric hookups. But, that was fine for our stay there. Nice playground for kids and game room. Campground has... More

No WIFI that works. Kids and Adults running around at top speeds kicking up more dust. The bath house doors on showers was broke. One of the two shower didn't work. No Cable TV. No Swerage at sites. Be careful of the exit road as I now have scratches to buff out of my RV due to not trimming the... More

The website looked pretty decent and some friends in the area told us it was close to Cleveland so for a couple of nights we thought how bad can it be ? We pulled in on a Saturday just before 2pm , check in was at 3pm . We travel all around the US and have found that arriving early... More

Although the campground itself is a very nice area, the administration of such is below average. We went camping with our grandsons, Niece, Nephew and their children there because I am a member of The Good Sam's Club and they have given this campground a good review. Was I surprised when I arrived there! They have only one bath house... More

American Wilderness is a nice campground with a lot of potential. The owners appear to be investing in the grounds and it shows with a nice swim pond and separate fishing / boating lake. Other amenities were an above average playground as well as gem mining and paddle boat rentals. The campground is also your best bet for exploring Cleveland.... More

This campground blew me away, from its family friendly nature to the countless activities for the whole family. I would recommend this campground to anybody looking to spend nice quality time with family. My favorite part of the experience was the amazing DJ they had for the 4th of July beach party. Everyone was super friendly and I'm looking on... More

I was aware when I made the five weeks reservation that there was no cable, no site sewer hookups but was assured from their website and staff on telephone that they provided free wi-fi. This was a pure fabrication. I am on my last day of my stay and was only able to connect to the wifi 5 percent of... More

Not unbearable, but advertisement didn't live up to promises. Swimming lake is actually a small pond, toilets through campground are NOT as described (plywood with toilet seat - non flush). Lakefront lots are NOT suitable for larger RVs because of narrow road and low branches. Tree scratched entire length of RV.
