Great campground with fantastic lakefront sites!

Overall this is a pretty nice campground. There are a small handful of electric only sites(30a), but the bulk of them are dry. The campground is located on a peninsula on Shenango River Lake. A large number of them are on the lake providing a nice area to beach your boat or kayaks. There are several playgrounds for the kiddos. There is also a boat launch on site. The lake is not horsepower limited either. Nice paved roads throughout. Most sites are level gravel.

Mosquito Lake Campground

Close to home for us. Sites are close together. Pretty lake and great fishing.

Area H is Beautiful

We stayed in Area H site 898 and could not get over the beautiful landscape. The lake and forest trails surround this area. The restroom and showers are brand new and are spacious and clean! The fellow campers were friendly.

There were sites along lakeside that I highly recommend if you don't need easy access to the facilities.

I have already booked another trip to Atwood Park. Loved it!!

West Branch is a pleasant camground.

We met a group of friends there to kayak on the lake. The lake and the campgrounds are busy places on a weekend in the summer. The campgrounds are clean, quiet and well organized. Spots are large enough that you do not feel crowded even on busy weekends. The lake was busy and a bit choppy with all the motor boasts but there are lots of quiet places to explore around the edge of the lake. 

We have plans to go back soon.

Not free

This campground is not free. It was $28 for a non-electric site and I believe I was told it was almost $40 for a site with an electric hookup. There's a picnic table and fire ring at each site, and mine had a hammock post, but I'm not sure if they all do. There are trails and fishing so plenty to do. Fairly sparse in April but a lot of people still driving and walking by. Alcohol prohibited

Sandusky Bay Camping

Boondock camping “in the field” (there are 3 electric/water reservable sites as well as most sites are seasonal) on the Sandusky Bay on Lake Erie. Mark and Amy Somodi will feel like lifelong friends as well as their daughter and son-in-law. Great people! Transient boat docks with gas available as well, best for 24’ and under with shallow bay waters. Quaint swimming beach. Campfire rings/firewood but bring table/chairs. Vault toilets, no showers, water onsite to fill RV or portable shower bag. No reservations needed for camping in the field. Take a ferry to explore Lake Erie islands: Kelley’s Island, Put-in-Bay (South Bass Island), and Middle Bass Island. 9438 East Bayshore Rd, Lakeside Marblehead, OH 43440

Sioux primitive sites at Raccoon SP

The Sioux sites at Raccoon are open year round. No electricity but there is a water pump and the pit toilets are clean and well (solar) lit 24 hrs. Four sites, each offers some privacy though we had the place to ourselves in early March.

The nearby hiking is great. Try the Wetlands trail for a glimpse of beavers.

From the park office head away from the main lake and campground for about a mile then follow the sign to Sioux up the hill.

Site 5 is a pull-through but closest to the 2 group tent areas and toilets. site 4 a bit damp, 2 and 3 nice.

Not Ohio’s best state park, but not the worst either

Stayed here several times in the summer of 2020 bc it was only an hour and a half from home and usually had sites available on or near the lake.

The algae was kind of thick, which made fishing impossible,so we stopped bringing the kayak.

Great Campground

My family has camped here the last two years and I’ve already made reservations for another trip this summer. The amenities are great with nice, clean showers and large sites. We’ve tent camped on the south side of the campground which seems to have more large and secluded sites. Having walked around it seems that the north side has more open condensed sites, but from what I can tell, generally all areas are pretty good (down side to the south side is being on the open lake and hearing loud boats all day).

For some it might be a pretty standard state park campground but for us it’s quickly becoming an annual family escape.

Everything you need for a great experience

Atwood lake os a true gem . Has everything you need. The H campground loops are full hookups, some right on the water. Electric, and primitive sites too. Pets welcome on a leash, a beach and hikng also. Docks available  50' from out waterfront lot. We could leave our camper, take the boat over to the beach and drop off the grandkids and me the Nana for swimming at the beach dock. Good fishing,  clean clean clean. Staff at rhe marina are very helpful. There is a snack shop and a full restaurant at the marina with great food, an ice cream dariette just down the road.  I highly recommend trying it, you wont regret it!
