Mike Tarach

First time staying here. Despite it being chilly and wet, we enjoyed the stay. Looking forward to a return stay during warmer weather. Great view of Lake Erie and Cedar Point (especially at night). The sites are very level and have a picnic table, grill and firepit. The rest of campground and buildings are very clean. Our dogs liked the dog park. Every member of the staff was friendly and personable. It's evident they want you to have a good stay. Spent a day viewing the local lighthouses.

Pamela Raines

Very nice campground! We rented a back-in spot for two nights. It was so nice to have full hookups and a flat place to park for such a reasonable rate. Obviously the campground is new and in beautiful shape, but you can tell that it is being well cared for. I dealt with both Pam and Barbara over the phone and they were both wonderful to work with. We had to arrive after check-in time and leave a little after check out and they were very accommodating with us. We will be back!

Campground Response

Thank you, Pamela, for the great review! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with Bayfront Resort, and we hope you're able to come back and visit us again. Thank you!

Janice Hochstetler

Beautiful campground on the water! Super clean and super friendly staff.

Campground Response

Thank you, Janice, for the 5-star review. We are happy you had a great experience with us, and we hope you come back and see us again!

Claudio Levin

It’s basically a large parking lot with cement pads. Two of the three nights we were there, there was very loud music, till midnight from whatever house was next to our site. One night it rained and our site pad was under 2-3” of water. The people who run the place are wonderful. It’s only been open 3 months. For us it was a place to stay while we visited the Rock & roll HF. Some sites are on the water, nice but again a large parking lot. Hopefully they will one day have trees etc and talk to whoever lives next door to the campground regarding the noise

Campground Response

Hi Claudio, thank you for your honest review, as we do appreciate the feedback. We apologize that we didn't meet your expectations, and we will be reaching out soon to discuss more details. Thank you.

Thomas Chilelli

Beautiful campground, outstanding view. We had a pull thru site and have already rebooked for next year.

Campground Response

Thomas, thank you for your 5-star review! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and it is the ultimate compliment that you are already booked for next year! Thank you!!

Sarah Mccoy Morgan

Love this place, we have camped here in our RV and we have also rented a cottage, top notch all around. Recommend 10/10.

Campground Response

Sarah, thank you so much for your 5-star review. We are so happy that you've experienced both a cottage and an RV stay with us! That means a lot to us that you recommend our resort - thank you, and we hope to see you again at Bayfront Resort!

William Robinson

We absolutely love this campground. This was our first stay here, right on the bay across from Cedar point. Sites are big and beautiful, we felt incredibly comfortable and safe. Staff super helpful and friendly. Will be back soon.

Campground Response

William, thank you so much for the 5-star review, and we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. It means a lot to us when we have return guests, so we do hope that you are able to come back and visit soon!


Great campground. Sites are clean, level and spaced a nice amount. Gated community adds to the sense of security. Only thing even close to being a negative was the poor wifi quality. Was hit or miss whether it would stay connected or not. Otherwise, a great place! I definitely want to go back.

Campground Response

Thank you, Cherie, for your 4-star review and feedback. We appreciate the information on the WiFi and we will make sure we look into it. Thank you, again, and we are glad everything else went well for your stay with us!

Thank you, Chris, for the 5-star review! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us - and some yummy Tofts ice cream...a staff favorite!
