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!!
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.
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
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.
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!
We went in July. It was incredibly crowded. Many sites were set up as buddy sites so we had to share our outside space with our neighbors. It was tight and awkward.
There is zero internet and no signal which is fine for camping but made finding the weather or maps very challenging.
The roads are narrow and there are a lot of people. We did not kayak the river bc there were just too many people on the river, the water was low due to lack of rain this summer, and when we could see the grotesque adult behavior from the road, we knew we weren't interested in joining that mess.
The site was clean, it is full hookup, and they drive you to your site, which was nice. There is a fire bowl and picnic table for each site and dogs are allowed. Our pull through site was plenty level and accommodated our 33' camper and truck. There is a trail off the campground which is nice. The Mohican State park is full of great trails.
The campground is easy to find and everyone was very nice and the other campers are mostly respectful. There were a few cars and motorcycles that kept "cruising" around which felt strange but was likely harmless.
Photo was during checkout this the empty look. The two rigs in the photo are facing one another which is what I mentioned above.
West Branch is one of the best-known family campgrounds in NE Ohio. And it's not hard to understand why. Full amenities, clean facilities, and a nice lake round out the picture of a great place to get some family R&R.
Here's what you can expect:
1. It's Busy.
Like, really busy. Be sure to book early as spots fill up often. Sites are fairly close to each other, but most people seem respectful of space and limits.
2. It's Accessible.
West Branch is a quick drive from Akron, Canton, Cleveland, and Youngstown - hence the draw. if you live anywhere close, there's no reason NOT to check this place out!
3. It's Fun (but a bit loud)
If you're looking for quiet, West Branch might not be the place for you. Since the lake has not real HP limits, you'll hear boats motoring quite a bit throughout the day.
4. It's got everything :)
Seriously. There's nothing else you could want. Hiking trails, swimming, a fully stocked office for the essentials you forgot.
Quick tip: Bring swimsuits. There are plenty of places to swim in the well-kept beaches or off a boat. West Branch is a great family getaway for summer swimming!
The park is very nice. Great Lodge. Nice lakes and cabins to rent. The camp grounds for RV's is not the best. Very few full hookups. Rest of the sites only have 15-20 amp service. The lots are not even close the level. You will need a lot of blocks to get close to level. Saw one RV with auto levelers with his tire about foot off the ground. If they leveled the lots and added water and at least 30 amp electric it would help a lot.
We love this park! Lots of hiking! Even saw a bald eagle this trip.
Another Thanksgiving spent in our camper and it was so nice and relaxing. There were more campers than a expected this weekend. I guess everyone likes to social distance in there campers too.
Camping in the off season is our favorite time of year. This particular park has potable water on by the dump station and the dump station is open. The water at the full hook up sites are turned off.
No cell service with Verizon at this park.
Crazy expensive(like $540 FOR 4 NIGHTS) but we figured we'de try it. It was horrible. Had to purchase wifi. Bunch of drunks and kids speeding by on golf carts all hours of the night. Took kids to swim at lake to find out they open the swimming area to the public. There were 2 commercial busses of teenage hoodrats that were beeing super aggressive, trampling young kids, and wouldn't listen to the lifeguards. There was absolutely no control and it was nothing short of chaos. No fish in the fishing pond. This place was way overpriced, nickle and dimed you to death, and was just unmanaged chaos. I don't recommend, especially if you have young kids.
