The office worker who checked us in was very rude and unnecessarily sarcastic. Check in was really rushed almost like we were a burden on her. We had to figure out most of the rules and regulations ourselves including where to park and where the bathrooms were. When we tried to ask questions her responses were snippy and short. But,...

Location at mouth of Presque Isle s.p. cannot be beat. Can easily reach the trail that runs around the Peninsula from campground. On site restaurants (pizza place, retro diner, cheap grub stand). The camp is split by the 4 lane road into the park. Beach side is more popular with tenters looking for a party. The other side has a... More

We got into this campground very late and just about missed the office closing! The young guy behind the counter was VERY nice and courteous and advised us towards a tent site next to the RV's rather than the beach because it was windy that night. The bathroom next to the office, near the beach was disastrous and the shower... More

We had 3 adjacent sites for our family vacation. The campground is clean and well maintained. The office staff is very friendly. Hopefully we will return next year! We stayed Monday - Wednesday, so we missed the busy weekend. Loved the sunsets and close proximity to Waldameer and Presque Isle. It was pretty cool to hear the waves crashing on... More

We've stayed at Sara's once before, and it was a quiet time. The beach looks like a party atmosphere, and they allow a limited number of popups on the beach. On the other side of the road is a more typical campground, where it's pretty quiet. The nearby restaurant is fun, and is family-friendly. We're staying there for Roar on... More

I was here in September of 2015 and it was wonderful. I waited all winter to come back. I got here Monday and it was very nice....so was Tuesday. Wednesday a camper pulled next to my tent. The man there blasts his music day and night. He was told by security to turn it off at 11pm last night. It's... More

I loved it. Staying on the beach was great. I met a bunch of really cool people and had an amazing time. Not to mention it was bike week. There was one night that on the side of the beach you could see paper lanterns being lit. They had fireworks. It was relaxing to go to sleep and wake up... More

At this time of year you may expect to wait for someone to show up in the office. Camping is across the 4-lane highway to Presquile Park. Full service site, pick your own for $25/night. Site has paved slab, wi-fi, electrical hook-up and rear sewer access. Next door to Sara's food strip

Went there for one night with my boyfriend. Stayed in a tent right on the beach and it was beautiful. I was a little worried that it would be a little sketchy after driving through Erie, PA, but it couldn't have been further from that. It felt VERY safe and the staff was friendly. Lots of RVs and not many... More
