This campground has a lot of potential. It is situated on 80 acres of gently rolling land. It is far enough from I-85 that traffic noise is not a problem. Electrical hookups and internet access were fine. The water connection was in a pit below ground level, making connecting a bit inconvenient. The biggest complaint that we have with this park is that it has NO SHOWER/BATH HOUSE! NONE! ZIP! No cable TV, although over-the-air stations were plentiful and came in really well.
Wow! What a gorgeous place to camp with your RV! The scenery was terrific, the sites were extremely roomy, and easy to get into and out of. Our site, #61, was level and very comfortable. It's a short drive to "civilization" if you need groceries, firewood, or fuel. This was our first COE camping experience, and we'll be back for more! Verizon cell phone service worked perfectly. Wish we could have had internet access, but "civilization" is not far away! (McDonald's, Walmart, etc.) The price was $12.00 a night with our National Parks Senior Pass.
We really liked this park. All the utilities (water, electric, sewer, internet) worked flawlessly. Lots of shade, and the sites were wide enough that you didn't have that cramped feeling with your neighbor. I would caution those who want a river-side site: These sites are sloped pretty severely toward the river, and they aren't very deep. Best for pop-up sized units. There are three bathhouses, so no matter which site you have, you are never very far from a squeaky clean one.
We stayed here for 8 days, and rate reflects PA discount of 50% for first 2 days, 25% for the remainder of the stay. Very nice park. Restrooms were always immaculate. Extremely friendly owners who run the park single-handed. Park was having Wi-Fi trouble the first couple of days, but they worked hard at sorting things out, and thereafter, it worked perfectly, although slowed down during heavy traffic times. Water pressure was a steady 37psi; electric and sewer hookups worked perfectly. We were on site #29, which I think is the best in the park. Close to caves, but far enough from interstate that noise is not a problem.
The good: Check-in went smoothly, we'd made reservations online. Site (#43) was level with some shade. The bad: Water hookup was a hose laying back in the weeds, connected to a tap somewhere, never did find it! Voltage was low, 114 V., even tho the transformer was right in front of our site. Read the other reviews of this campground, they pretty much tell the story of bureaucratic mismanagement and neglect.
Wow! This is a super park. Very nice restrooms, nice pool. Beautifully landscaped. If you like shady sites with trees, check out the ones down the hill from the pool. We camped in site 28 right behind the pool. Wonderful, the nicest site we've ever been on. The temp was in the 90's and everybody was running their A/C, but the voltage stayed at 120 V. or slightly above. That shows good power distribution planning. Staff was friendly and helpful. Even tho the campground is near an interstate, the noise level was not bad at all. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area.
We stopped here for an overnight stay, very nice park. Staff were friendly and helpful, sites were roomy and level, and the place had the appearance of careful and continuing upkeep. Very nice pool. The only downside was noise from the adjacent interstate highway, which abuts the campground property. The trucks and Harleys were the worst! Also, if you're going to need ice, get it before coming here, they don't sell it!
We signed up for two nights, expecting to move on to another campground. We ended up staying here for two weeks, we liked it so well. HUGE sites, lots of open space for walking our two large dogs, friendly campers and staff. We really liked Wandering Oaks. We'll be back!
Great park, our dogs loved the enclosed dog run. The showers and restrooms were excellent, but the best part was the staff. Super friendly and very helpful. Electric service was good, Wi-Fi reception was good, we didn't try to receive TV.
This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Fantastic view of Lake Superior. Large, level campsites with very easy access, recently upgraded electric and Wi-Fi services, close by stores in town. The restrooms are very clean. The showers are nice, but require 50 cents for 6-8 minutes, so bring some quarters. We've been coming here for almost 10 years, and it's nice to see that the campground has made improvements that keep it up with the times, yet it still maintains the rustic atmosphere that, to us, defines camping. We'll be back!
Despite its glowing reviews, this campground was a disappointment. Muddy sites, very close together, no shade, and not much of a camp store. Our check-in was handled by a staffer who appeared really not to care if we stayed or not. The superb restrooms/showers and the view of the ships going through the locks were about this campground's only saving graces. We had considered staying for several nights, but after seeing our campsite, we moved on to greener pastures.
Very average, or maybe below. Mostly seasonal campers, some quite run down. Very spotty Wi-Fi coverage. We stopped here as an over night stay, but wouldn't want to spend much time here. We've stayed a much better campgrounds on this trip that cost less per night than this one. This appears to be an older campground that hasn't been kept up to date or receive much maintenance.
We stayed here as an overnight stop, and loved the place. Lots of big shade trees and level sites. The owner lives on-site, and was most helpful. I asked him if he sold ice, and he told me, "No, but they do at the Burger King and the gas station at the bottom of the hill. Would you like me to give you a ride down there in my golf cart?" He did, and I got my ice. We used our Passport discount, and found this campground to be a terrific bargain.
Very scenic park, friendly, helpful staff. Wi-Fi coverage was spotty, quite a bit of noise from nearby highway and industry across the street. Other than these two issues, the park was great. We'd stay here again.
