We have stayed here a few times. It was fairly new the first couple of times we stayed here, and the low electric service still exists. We were site 27, and we could barely use our microwave without anything else running. Our neighbors on both sides were also having problems keeping their air conditioning, and fridge running. So if you... More

This was our first camping trip to Erie in our 28' trailer and we just loved this campground! Our site was very large & peaceful and the management & everyone that we saw were very cordial and smiling. :) The kids loved the pool and biking on the grounds, plus playing in the gameroom. We'll definitely be going back again... More

We found this campground on the internet and we will return! We were in Erie for a family reunion, and stayed here because it's family owned, and have found those types of campgrounds to be nicer accomodations. The family and staff were excellent, very welcoming, and offered great suggestions for the area. Some sites are closer together than others. They... More

It was a nice place. Although they did not enforce the quiet time and there were people up until past 2am keeping us awake. Pool was closed for maintenance. Only free Wi-Fi at rec hall during open hours, or pay at your site.

This will be a 5 star campground in the future, they're just not there yet. Free WiFi is only at the clubhouse, we paid to receive it at our site (it is fast enough to stream movies). The pool is heated, the playground isn't huge but occupied our toddler for nearly 45 minutes. The sites are large, though most are... More

Not a great campground. Overpriced for an uneven campsite that is partially mowed every three to four weeks. The bathroom in the actual campground (not the pool/rental public bathrooms in the office building) smell constantly, are infrequently cleaned, have cement floors which always have wet spots and a wet stream running from one of the two toilets. The showers are... More

Stayed here. Seems to be a nice place with plenty of offerings. Activities for guests and pool. Was traveling through the area on a holiday weekend, needed only two days but had to pay for three, understandable. Seems to be several nightly and several seasonal or more permanent setups. Will stay again if ever back in the area...

Loved our stay. We had a great site right on the pond. Check in was easy and the staff more than friendly. The sites are a bit on the tight side but that's the norm for private campgrounds. Pools was very clean and well kept This is about 10 min from Peach St exit of the thruway, about 20 min... More

We camped here with a camping group. When we arrived, something was wrong with the electric to our camper. They quickly checked it out and had an electrician fix it.

Love this place. Close to home but yet far enough away. Staff is awesome and always helpful. Grounds are well kept. A wide variety of activities for all, especially on the weekend. We enjoy hanging out at our site and relaxing.

“The rustic cabins were a great deal. For only $10 more per night, you can have a/c at night. The cabins were clean and sturdy which really came in handy when a bad storm with straight line winds blew in unexpectedly.”
