  • This was our first stay here. We live full time in our motor coach and this was our first trip to Geneva. The camp sites are large and easy to reserve on line. The only reason I couldn't give them a '...  more »

  • We just tent camped at the park. I will list the good and the not so good. Good: GREAT Location, easy to bicycle to town & beach, tons of trees, sites were far apart and felt more private than expected, electric at every site, paved pads, fire rings, nice enclosed fish cleaning area, bathrooms & water available near the sites. The office has a store with items you may need like firewood, ice, coffee and the staff were friendly and helpful. The Not So Good: The sites themselves were not cleaned properly. many of the sites had past registration tags that were expired and it made it difficult to know what was truly available unless you knew the system, maybe taking a rake back there and picking up small trash after people check out might spruce it up a little, bathrooms were not clean - (they are better than an outhouse,) they need painted and a good cleaning. The last thing was the staff didn't show up to open the store in the AM. We waited until 30 minutes past the posted open hours and no one showed. Disappointed about that. Unfortunately, that seems to be what happens with summer help. It was a reoccurring theme in town as many places commented that workers were not showing up, those who did seemed stressed and not as pleasant as they should be at first impression. If you can look past these things its a great little town and the price of food is cheap and staying at the park is cheap. We will go back again
  • I'm only giving this 2 stars, because of the current conditions of the camps sites. The sites are low lying so almost 90% of the sites are very wet and muddy. The park staff offers straw bails to help soak up water from the sites, but it is way too wet to be enjoyable for camping. Unless your fortunate to get one of the few dry sites, you'll likely be disappointed, especially if you reserve a site on line without knowing first if its one of the dry ones. The bathrooms and shower stations are clean and pretty good condition. The playground is nothing special, just a swing set and slide, which at this time is unusable because they are so wet. The location otherwise is a great. Close to Geneva on the Lake and several Vineyards. Once this place dries out, I would agree with 4 stars.
  • Pretty park, yes, it was a bit wet, but it rained! :) We're self-contained, but if we needed the restrooms, it would be a hike, shower and laundry facilities were also a hike, we were in site 19. Pretty park for hiking, many were swimming, we didnt. This is our second time camping here.
  • A nice park on the lake. The beach was good for a lake Erie beach. It had paved biking trails too.
  • We enjoyed it there. The beach was clean. We didn't like that there were so many stones at the water's edge. Very hard to walk on.
