If you enjoy camping East Harbor State Park in Lakeside, Ohio is the place to be. My family has been camping there every year for the past 10 years. East Harbor sits right on Lake Erie and offers both electric and non electric sites. There are even sites for those with pets. The park provides a nice size camp site, showers, flush toliets, playgrounds, summer nature programs, summer night time entertainment, and a wonderful beach. My family not only loves the park but the surrounding area.
There is a wonderful farmers market, cheese house, and popcorn company that we always visit. There is also miniture golf, go carts, fishing charters, and the best amusement park - Cedar Point in the area as well. You can also take ferries to the surrounding islands for a day of fun. If you want to do something educational you can always drive a few miles further from the park and visit the Marblehead lighthouse. There is so much to do in the area that you could run out of time.
I would say the only downfall is when you are camping in a tent weather is always an issue and the seagulls are really loud early in the morning but these issues are minor compared to the fun we have. This is a very budget friendly vacation spot. So what are you waiting for? Go grab your tent and let's get camping.
