“Poor experience at Cedarlane RV Park”
Reviewed August 17, 2008

Recent 5 day stay was a bad experience. Dumpsters overflowed onto the ground with bags of garbage. Many flies. My husband complained but we were not offered another site farther from the dumpsters. Explanation given was that garbage hauler was late. Two days of putrid smell were too many.
A maintenance man driving around in a golf cart with an open can of beer rudely questioned us about whether we had seen the rules of the park before we were even set up. I was in tears after my encounter with him. I felt harassed. I had done nothing wrong. I did go see management. He patrolled the roads every 3 or so hours stopping at campsites to explain the rules.
There was noise that woke us after quiet hours, that is, cars driving thru streets and loud talking. Did not see or hear anyone enforcing the quiet time.
At any time of day, people walked about with open alcoholic containers in hand. I believe alcohol consumption should be restricted to the site you are on.
My family and I are good campers. We are environmentalists who pick up litter after others, recycle and protect growing things. I would never go back. Thank you.

Throughout the park there are 7 large dumpsters that are emptied at a minimum of once a week. We are extremely cognizant of the aesthetics and sanitation of all our facilities, trash receptacles included. What this guest probably didn't notice is that we make multiple rounds of the park daily to ensure cleanliness throughout. On seldom occasions when a trash container is found overflowing, we will load excess trash from the container and distribute it to the park's other containers, as well as compact the containers with a tractor. If odor is an issue, we have them emptied early. Perhaps this guest got to one of the containers before we did, but this scenario is certainly not an accurate or typical portrayal of our park. Regarding park rules, it is common practice and a generally appreciated service at our park for us to escort campers to their sites upon check-in. At this time we ask our campers to read the rules and reinforce things like quiet hour, speed limits, etc. For such an atypical scenario, it is odd that we do not remember anybody complaining about this situation. Nonetheless, we do apologize for any misunderstanding, miscommunication, or inconvenience that was incurred as a result of this guest's conversation with the escort. We do patrol the park after quiet hour, but unfortunately cannot regulate the sound of cars driving down the roads. Alcoholic beverages are permitted in the park, but overconsumption is frowned upon and handled accordingly. Our staff tirelessly endeavors to preserve the natural beauty of our park and appreciates that this guest picks up litter and protects growing things - we do the same. The fact that a very small number of guests leave our park disappointed does not negate the fact that we work diligently to maintain a family friendly, clean, and relaxing atmosphere for all our guests.

We recently visited Cedarlane RV park to tent camp with our 5 yr. old grandson. We found the park very clean and well kept...especially the bathrooms. The swimming pools were a hit and the reason we picked Cedarlane...we were not disappointed. During our stay it was unseasonably cool so the "heated" pool was very nice. We also found the camp store to be very reasonably priced. Also, we found Cedarlane to be a very family oriented park. We highly recommend Cedarlane especially if you have children. We felt very secure during our stay which was very important since the last time we camped (in TN) we had some of our equipment stolen. With the locking gate feature and a roaming manager we felt safe. We will be back!

This campground is a very good place to camp at. It is only 2 miles away from Millers Ferry where you can take the ferry to Put In Bay or Kelly's Island. We always take our bikes with us so that we can bike around the islands after taking the ferry to our distination. The campgrounds & restrooms are clean with a swimming pool available for the customers & a kids wading pool for the kids next to the playground area. There is easy access to the internet through their data port at the payphone outside of their office/grocery store. They don't have full hook-ups but they have plenty of dump stations around the grounds.
