  1. KOA Streetsboro

http://koa.com/campgrounds/streetsboro/

187 State Route 303

Streetsboro, OH 44241-5245

  • Location: 
    • For us this location was perfect! Only a 20 minute drive from our home. It was close to big box stores, Hudson (which has all kinds of shops, restaurants, and ice cream), Aurora Farms Outlet, and a lot more! Granted, we didn’t visit any of these locations, but it was nice to have the option.
  • Price:
    • $58.05 per night for a pull through site.
  • Accommodations & Amenities:
    • The sites were clean and well maintained. They had Wi-Fi, a cute snack bar with essentials as well as ice cream and candy. The shop sold fire wood that they delivered directly to your site. There was a small lake that allowed fishing (catch and release). They had a small pool that was in nice shape (it wasn’t open yet though)… in prime season this pool could definitely get over crowded. There was a large pavilion for a large group to gather.

Of course Ben spotted a mower!!        Cabins (Or glorified tents)

  • Facilities:
    • Ok… I have really only stayed at state parks, with that being said I may have been spoiled. The bathrooms were clean, but older.
  • Activities:
    • They offered crafts in the afternoon and a hayride in the evening (which was canceled due to rain). There were corn hole boards set up, playground, swings and basketball hoop. Prime season starts after Memorial Day… so I would assume there will be a lot more activities offered.
  • OVERALL: B+

6787 Baker 47

Shelby, OH 44875

  • Location:
    • It is about a 1 hour and 45 minute drive from either Akron or the Cleveland area. We left at nap time and Bennett slept the entire way there and back. Score!! It was a peaceful drive 🙂 There wasn’t much to do outside the campground, but to be honest, this campground offers so much, there is no need to leave the facility.
  • Price:
    • $69.00 per night. This seems to be on the high end for campgrounds, but is worth it.
  • Accommodations & Amenities:
    • The sites were clean and well maintained. They offer WiFi, a ‘Kafe’ that offers food and desserts, a large gift shop with essentials as well as gift items, large pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, large bounce pad, putt-putt, several playgrounds, basketball and tennis courts, paddle boats, multiple fishing lakes, activities’ hall, bike rentals, and multiple pavilions. They really covered all their bases.
    • There were cabins and yurts on site as well.
    • They offer deluxe patio sites.

 

  • Facilties:
    • Clean and in convenient locations.
  • Activities:
    • There were so many different types of activities for all ages. The owners of the campsite are very hands-on. I met Garry (owner) and I think I saw him at almost every activity offered. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.
    • Saturdays they offer a rib dinner in their community hall (additional cost).
    • Wine and Cheese tasting as well (Donations for a charity)
  • OVERALL: A+
