Spacious sites with biking and walking trails

We love camping here.  Every site is spacious and most have a full natural barrier that separates sites.  There are some full hookups, but all have electric.   Bring your bikes and walking shoes.  The paved biking and walking trails are well cared for.  There is also a beach at the state park. The only thing we dislike is the wait for the dump station.  Be ready to wait on Sundays if that is your check out day.

Beautiful, woody, peaceful perfection!!!

Maumee Bay State Park. Ohio. Let me state: Awesome park Full hook ups, 50,30,20. Sewer. Water. Handicap sites too!!! Dump station, with rinse down hose if needed. Large sites, private by trees. Gives each on your own yard. All Back of sites are fields. No one behind.
Quiet. Beautiful.
Lodge on site, cabins too Store, pool at lodge, game room at lodge. Bathrooms, showers houses. Clean and kept up. Each area has one.
Roads are set up with a circle at the end. Drive down them loop around then drive out. Angled driveways, easy to get trailer in. Or back in A and C class easy in and out too. Lakes, beach, canoe, kayak, bikes, hiking, boardwalk, wild life preserve, birders Haven, a scenic hill to climb.
More pictures to come.
They also have Hosts that stay here, and get free camping for helping parks out. Quiet times are observed. Perfection!!!! Wish all campgrounds had this layout.

Love everything this park has to offer

Campground was full this weekend with perfect weather. I will say every time we have camped here it’s always a quiet park. They only thing I dislike is the line at the dump station when leaving blocks the whole road and takes forever.

The trails are really nice and the boardwalk trail over by the lodge is my favorite. The beach area is nice and clean… to cold this trip to swim. Lots of wildlife at this park. We saw deer, raccoons, muskrat, lots of bird species and several snakes.

The camp store was closed due to COVID as was the nature center.

Secluded and quiet!

We loved this spot! We wanted to stay longer but we didn’t have the time. This camp only has three sites! We stayed on UR2. It was wooded! We had two tents and one car. The rustic toilet was very clean and was no struggle to use. There is a bridge and really nice trail along the river with waterfalls right at the end of the campground. In the right conditions you could probably fish off of the cross country ski trail which we walked too.

A bit tired

It’s a nice enough campground definitely starting to show its age the laundry rooms and showers looking old Plenty of room for kids to run around

Wonderful campground on Lake Erie

Nice campground on Lake Erie! Very private with trees surrounding most of the sites.Trails, board walk, nice beach, hotel with restaurant and pool.

A Place to Sleep

We recently had a 1 night stay (weeknight) at Camp Sandusky and it seems that the reduced operations at Cedar Point coupled with our friendship Covid have taken a toll. The camp had approx 8 resident, we were the only tent. Neighboring sites had human food remains scattered around (poor maintenance). The campground pretty much sits on top of the highway which is heavily traveled as an alternate to the Turnpike, so a quiet night will not be had. Judging by the review from last year, things have totally changed as there are none of the mentioned activities available. It did serve as a place to sleep but if you are looking for family activities you may want to look elsewhere.

Seriously clean and quiet!

Wow.. what a nice little getaway in Hell, Michigan area! Camp host, “Lightening” is a friendly and helpful guy who NEVER stopped working (except to chat with campers here and there). The big pool and bathrooms were immaculate, with surrounding patio furniture sanitized nightly (I watched from my RV window and was so impressed with Lightening’s genuine dedication). The site we had was very large and pretty level. The price we paid was W/E $30/night. Cannot beat that for a fun getaway on a budget! Neat area to find trails and lakes to enjoy as well. Highly recommended campground!

Kid friendly camping

Brighton recreation has several camping areas within its property.

They offer all types of camping

The lake has water activities you can pay extra for if you would like to do that.

Near by grocery stores

A lot of trails for biking and hiking.

Rustic tent camping

Appleton has a few sites, very rustic and perfect for tents.

Not for RVs and no hook ups.

Appleton lake is perfect for kayaking or very small fishing boats. No real beach area at this lake but Brighton rec is minutes away
