Interrogated by owner, almost electrocuted...other than that...a good time. A note about their pool admisson when you camp and use the pool...Anyone who goes to the pool while you are camping needs to be registered when you check in, in order to get the $6.50 pool admission. They must also spend the prior night (not the same night you are going to pool) otherwise you pay $10.50 for admission. This was not made clear to my mother-in-law when they checked in and neither was the policy regarding the pool wristbands they give to those who camp. My MIL told me to use hers since she would not be using the pool. When we got to the gate and were told $10.50 for each child (my son and 2 nieces), so I paid the $10.50 to get my 2 year old in the pool for 2 hours. The wife of the owner, whose name is Charlene, later saw me at the snack bar and started repeatedly questioning me...wanting to know where my wristband came from, all while I was holding $3 of melting ice cream I had just purchased from their snack bar for my son and even though she saw I was trying to supervise a toddler near a pool, felt it was more important to accost a paying customer in front of everyone else about a lousy wrist band, which I was told to use. Believe it or not, though this wasnt the worst part. My FIL was almost electrocuted while plugging into the electric hookup due to a wire which was not properly grounded. Overall a nice park, but they need to address the electrical issues and find someone else to handle policies regarding customer service, owner or not, Charlene and the electric are a danger to business.
Terrible! Within 45 minutes of being at the park, they called a safety break. Ok, I understand that it is necessary so we waited patiently for it to end. Unfortunately, within 15 minutes of the end of the safety break, everyone was ordered out of the pool for 30 minutes because someone had vomited in the pool. Upon hearing this no one in our party wanted to go back in swimming anyhow. My husband asked for a rain check, not a refund and the staff was not very helpful. We decided to leave, this was after spending almost 50 dollars to get in to the park. I was very unhappy at this point. Please keep in mind that we were already tolerant of the lack of chairs around the pool as well as the pool being completely freezing. Oh and the areas around the pool are dirty as well. I tried to speak with two gentleman at the admission gate. Heres where it really goes down hill. I typically dont say anything but this was such a bad experience, I felt justified to say something. As I was speaking to them, not yelling, they literally were laughing in my face. They were complete jerks. Standing in front of a customer, smirking and saying "I cannot help you" is not customer service. They both started arguing with me. Clearly, they have found their niche in the White Trash, picnic, RV market and they are making enough money that they could care less about what happens at their facility. It appears managers are maybe one step above it. Stay away!
We went to the Jellystone Park in Mount Gilead last year and has a good time, so we thought wed try another. If we could combine the best features of both parks weve been to, itd be great. The kids had fun, we made family memories, and thats why I gave it 4 stars. The cabin was quant, about what we expected it to be. Mosquitos were out, but hey, its camping. We also got to see wildlife, including a bunny, chipmunk, and four raccoons. The pool was nice, and unlimited mini golf was a plus. The 100ft slide the website talks about, though... left a lot to be desired. The burlap sacks to ride down were left out in the rain, and the slide itself has seen better days. If you plan on utilizing their "free wi-fi," prepare to be disappointed. Even though devices said they were connected, there was nothing happening. This isnt necessarily a negative since camping is supposed to get you away from technology. We probably wont go to this one again, but will try other ones. Also, only being 20 minutes from the NFL Hall of Fame was nice. Would love to give 3.5 stars because it was fun, but could be better.
We were in Akron for the Small College World Series, looking for a campground, instead of a hotel...So glad we found this place! Short distance from Firestone Stadium. The cabin we rented was clean, and very accomodating! The park itself, is very clean and well kept. The staff was very pleasant. All the amenitites you need are right down the road, with grocery stores, restaurants, etc...all the places you would need while you were there, not to mention very affordable! The camground has a human size foosball game, slides, playground, mini-golf...all the things you want for the kids! Our daughters team came over for a bbq after the game, and they went nuts over the giant slide, and human size foosball...it was nice to see 20+ year olds, acting like they were 10 again !!! Short distance from Canton where the NFL Hall of Fame is...plenty of things to check out in the area. Would recommend this place to anyone looking to relax, and get away!!! Would stay here again!
Stayed here Memorial Day weekend 2014. Had a very good time. A little pricey, but a nice little campground. We stayed in a site on the seasonal side (site 101 was great). Upside was more room, but it was just a little farther away from the pool and putt-putt and other activities. The regular overnight area reminded me of camping at a NASCAR race (in a good way). Sites were close together, but looked like everyone was having a great time. Only complaint was the water. When I filled up a gallon jug to take out for our dog, you could see just how brown it was. Oh, and the sewer hookups in the seasonal area were terrible. Just big plastic containers in the ground, many of which were not even buried properly. Went to dump before leaving and discovered ours was full, which was a little annoying. Showers/pool/putt-putt were extremely clean. $210 was kind of steep for the weekend, but overall it was a very enjoyable trip.
The mini-golf course needs a little TLC. The first time I came here with my son was to play mini-golf 4-5 years ago. That year we visited several mini-golf places that my parents took me to play when I was a kid and it was very disappointing because they have not maintained the places. There is only one course here but it was in great condition and fun to play. Each year that I visit my Mom in Canton my son and I come here to play some mini-golf. The astro turf is now showing some age and it is wrinkled in places, worn in others. It is still a fun course but I hope they invest in new astro turf in the near future. The ice cream at the snack bar is really good and we usually have some before heading home. Each year my son bugged me to take him swimming here so we finally did that a couple years ago. He had a great time.
