  • We went camping here in July. They have a Nature Center here which was really great for the kids and perfect for if the weather isn't great. They have a reading area with lots of books about animals and lots of other things about animals that was very hands on. The Nature Center staff were super: friendly, knowledgeable and good with kids and adults. The camping was nice and the playgrounds near the beach were beautiful and new. It was not a great beach for swimming-the water was a little rough and it's a shale beach so it was difficult for the younger kids (6 years and 3 years). When the water was calm it was fine. They had lots of activities available, e.g., eagle watching hike, dragon fly catching (and releasing), and a sand castle building contest and more that the kids really enjoyed.
  • This place brings back so many childhood memories it is unreal. The park is clean, wellmaintained and staffed by very friendly people. The beach is very nice and sandy. Unlike most of the Lake Erie beachfront, the rocks and shells are cleared away leaving an almost perfect sand beach. There are also two playgrounds that my son enjoyed immensely!
