Disappointed

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Aug 25, 2021via mobile
We were very excited for our anniversary trip to Kelleys Island after booking the reservation 6 months ago. We stayed at Site 32 which was full hookups. Unfortunately, two large garbage dumpsters were right on the grass of our site. You can imagine the odor that emitted from them! Bathrooms were ok. Woman working at the reservation desk was incredibly friendly. We decided to leave 3 days early as there just wasn’t much to do on Kelleys Island. We did it all in one day. I had envisioned so much more from our stay.

We loved the campground. Nearly all the sites are good and the campground was very family friendly. Everyone respected the quiet time rules. The only reason this is only a 4 star is because the bath houses are a mess. They need to be updated. The whole time we were there (5 days), one (of 3) showers and one soap dispenser at one of the 3 sinks was inoperable in the women's shower house. The toilets ran out of toilet paper a couple of times and the floors were full of water from leaking toilets and showers. They were honestly disgusting. We had a great time and enjoyed the island.

We stayed in one of the yurts at the state park. It was a nice trip!

The yurt includes a bathroom, shower, kitchen, table, and space to sleep. Our lot was right next to the lake and overlooking the most popular beach. If you are staying in the yurt, I suggest packing a handful of fitted sheets and actual bedding to go over their mattress covers. Also, some towels!

There are hiking trails within walking distance, but everything on the island is so accessible.

We look forward to coming back to the campground in the future.

The manager at this camp was wonderful. We had run into issues with our camping spot and he did whatever he could and got us into another spot that worked for us. We were very thankful for everything they did. I would however like to advise AGAINST going to the ice cream/ shop across the street from the camp ground, Unk’l Dik’s. I went in with my 6 year old to get ice cream and left speechless at the way we were treated. The guy working there (implied that he was the owner, but not 100% sure) decided it was appropriate to use “F*ck” multiple times towards myself and my 6 year old. It was completely disrespectful, unprofessional, and unnecessary. However as he said to me, “ it is a private business and they can do whatever the f*ck they want”.

The campground itself was nice, the location was gorgeous but the process to reserve a site was the worst experience, Donna in the office was awful, we had to make three trips to the island in person to finally reserve our spot. We were told the section we were in didn’t allow dogs so we made arrangements for ours to stay with family yet several people next to us had dogs, we wished we had brought ours.

The campground itself is located in a beautiful location. If you are a tent camper, unless you get a premium non-electric site, you will have problems. The other non-electric sites offer little to no privacy, and the restrooms are a long walk away. One ranger is present on Friday and Saturday...that's it. Consequently, there are going to be a few campers who don't respect the rules...especially the Quiet Time ones. Too many loud inebriates can interfere with one's ability to sleep.
