Campgrounds, any recommendations. Looking for a family, fun campground, preferably on Lake Erie, but atleast within 20 minutes of Sandusky.

When I say family fun, something appealing to 13/14 year old woodsy, kids!

I know nothing about campgrounds... and the only thing I know of Ohio is that they have a nice amusement park (but I dont know where).  Best of luck.

My DH grew up in Columbus, but he was a city boy, & that was 30 some years ago, lol. Yes amusement Park, Cedar Point is actually why we are going, & it's in Sandusky. I was hoping there might be some OH moms on here, fingers crossed:)

 There are actually two huge amusement parks in Ohio - Cedar Point in Sandusky and King's Island near Cincinnai.  There used to be a KOA fairy close to Cedar Point, not sure if it is still there or not since I haven't been to Cedar Point in over 25 years now.  If my foggy memory serves, Cecar Point has their own camp ground.

Cedar point does have there campground, but even though it is off season, it is the busiest weekends, Halloweekend opening:(. So we are looking for a somewhat quieter place;). Yes there is a KOA, just from online searching, found a handful, and was wondering which one would be good. Do you by chance know if KOA allow public, I always thought they were only like an association campground. Tells you how much I know about campgrounds, lol. That's what we get for staying at the same one over, & over again;)

KOA is not an association. Anyone can stay there. As far as other campgrounds let me see if my SIL remembers what campground she stayed at. It may be a little bit of a drive to the amusement park though.

That would be great, we are hoping to be within 20-30 minutes, but if it is a good one may be worth a drive:). Would just really be nice to know it is family friendly since we have 4 kids.

It was farther away than that I think. It was on Marble head. It was family friendly. She stayed there with our two kids who were 10 & 12 at the time (I think). DH and I checked in with them at night (we stayed at my dad's about 10 mins away). Whenever we stayed there at Dad's we went to CP by boat so I don't know what the drive is. I'll do some looking online and see if I can figure out where it was.

No you're right Marblehead had a couple campgrounds, it is one of the places I was looking at. Wonder if it was a State Park. It is actually okay because that would put us between Toledo and Sandusky, we want to hit the African Safari in Toledo one day. See I know all the attractions, lol just nothing about the campgrounds. We used to always stay in hotels til we got so many kids, lol.
