“Our Summer Home Away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

We have had a seasonal RV here for years. One of best views on Lake Erie, walk/ride to downtown/Lakeside, lighthouse, short car ride to our Bay Point Beach club & sail boat, Catawba. Port Clinton, Sandusky, Huron and Vermillion- so much to do... We love it.

The seasonal campers are great. Yes there are rules, but this is not a bad thing to keep the place clean & safe for our families. It is very pet-friendly.

We sure wish new owners would put in a outdoor restaurant/bar to be able to enjoy the lake view. From the front of the campground and motel, there are views of Kelly's Island and Put-in-Bay- gorgeous...The views are like a live painting that is ever changing, depending on the weather, the lake and the time of day.

The Surf is a great family environment. We highly recommend this campground.

The new owners (as of approx. Nov. 2013) own other nice area campgrounds ... We are excited for the change of guard, but will miss the old owners.

We camped here over the weekend since it was close to Bay Point where we were taking our class car for a car show. This is the 2nd year we've camped at this campground.

They have made one great improvement, which is the new pool. It is centrally located in the campground now and is the perfect depth for our 6 and 4 year old kids. They loved it! The campsite was fine, athough the sewer was on the back of our camper and the electric and water on the front (with lots of cords to trip over!).

Why I say they don't deserve your business is that they don't appreciate their customers, at least not us. Normal checkout is noon, and we had some friends that lived about an hour away and wanted to see us before we headed home. So, I called the front desk to ask for a 3:00 checkout, and the owner/manager's response was the best he could give me was 1:00, not 1:05, not 1:10, 1:00! Now, I know this campsite was not rented out that night so I don't see why he couldn't give us until 3:00 to check out. We've camped MANY places and the great ones give you a little longer to enjoy the campground, especially if no one has reserved the site you're in for the night. I've never experienced a ruder, grumpier person running a campground. Camping is supposed to be a pleasant, laid back, enjoyable experience. This is NOT what we encountered from the owner/manager of this campground! Take your money elsewhere!
