The training post was very quiet with almost nobody there. It's open to the public with no security. The conference center, lodging, and RV Park are all new. There were only a few RV's. The beaches on Lake Erie are a short walk from the RV Park. WiFi was available at the RV Park, but I couldn't get an Internet connection. Restrooms/showers are new, basic and fairly clean, although work was being done on some showers. Check-in staff was very friendly. We took a day to visit the Henry Ford Museum and the Ford (F-150) Factory tour located 90 miles away. We had a nice visit.

The only negatives are no wifi and no doggie park. Otherwise, this is a great park! Very well kept, plenty of space between sites, and utilities located in accordance to where they are located on an RV. The staff was extremely helpful giving us ideas if where to go and what to see. The roads and sites are asphalt and the rest is nice green lawn. Verizon cell signal was ok, easy to get satellite dish signal. We would definitely stay there again.

Really nice campground. 40 sites with good road network. Sites are blacktop, level and long. Narrow, but usable for our 40 motor home. Water and electric standard park utilities (locked, given key at registration). Dump is somewhat unusual. There is a 6” opening in a 36” iron cap. When you remove the 6” opening, there is the standard piping for your dump hose, 8/10” below. I have a Sani-con system. Little difficult to get the end, into that space and secure it onto the dump pipe. There is a table and fire ring at each site. There is toilet/shower building located at the park. Didn’t use, tho many folks did. OTA TV reception poor and no cable. When here last, (06) the trees were newly planted. Tree near our site is a Callory Pear, now 7-8” caliper. Nice lush lawn throughout. When entering Camp, signs direct you towards RV PARK. You pass the park road and end up at (the office) where you register. (There is a printable map on their web site that is useful) Didn’t know that. Made U-turn there and went to park. Called office, they gave me site #, parked, and went back to office and registered. On their web site, lists a dining hall open to everyone, but when I enquired, told there was none. Their web site need updating. Camp was full (Memorial weekend) of young families. Thought that many were active guardsmen (no near military bases), until I found out park is open to public. There is no gate to the post. There is no security patrolling to insure rules are maintained. Rules ignored this weekend. No quiet hours, no dog rules (must be leashed) not running loose. Kids on skate boards, bikes and a not so new stand-on gizmo late into the nite. There were three large (separate) groups partying. Must have requested specific sites to be together. We have stayed at FamCamp’s throughout 46 (??) states. Cost out of range for what you get. Other campground near-by, with various discounts, offers more. At $40/nite, (with military discount) doubt that we will return.

We Came in on tuesday prior to Labor Day weekend. We were told that the spots are reserved and will be assigned a spot we get our spot and the rules of the canpground and one of the first rules on the page is “ campground sites are first come first serve” so why not be able to pick the spot you want..oh maybe because friends of friends reserved the entire middle section and have connections that we dont. We had a great week until fri when labor day weekend started and pretty much EVERY rule was broken and no body seemed to care. It says no more than 2 dogs on each rv site and must be leashed the lady two sites infront of us had three dogs on her site none of which were on leashes and attaching the lease to the dog but to nothjng else doesnt count they just ran around everywhere. Then they had friends come in that brought two more dogs and they just kept adding up. Then you have tenters on an rv site when it shows tent site on map in the field. The tents were not 15 ft alart like it states they need to be in rules you had people parked on the grass like it states not to do in the rules. Then it states per rv site you are only allowed to have one dinning tent and thats it nope people had rv on their site with sleeping tents and dinning tents. Lets move on to the quiet times wow there is NONE 1130 at night you still had kids running around screaming and carring on on their bikes scooters racing each other up and down the street campers coming in around 10pm just getting there to set up when quiet time is notes from 10pm-8am. It was crazy. Now i understand its a holiday weekend but people can still be respectful and should still have to abide by every rule listed. Esp for the amount you have to pay here per night you would think the rules would be inforced not everyone comes out on holiday weekends to party and cut up we have small kids whos bedtime is 9-10pm and trying to get them to sleep at this place was a nightmare once fri came around. We were really looking forward to our stay here as it is a nice well kept campground and really nice beach but that did not happend once the holiday weekend came and we never saw anyone checking up on campground to make sure the rules wernt being broken and if they did they obveously didnt care that they were breaking them.

We have been traveling on and off for the past 18 months. We try to stay in military campgrounds whenever possible. This campground was the most expensive and least amenities of any military campground we have been to. Firstly, do not follow your GPS, Look for 2 large stone pillars and enter the base at the pillars. Another first, there is no gate, no security, no IDs required, never encountered that before! We were there for 2 nights/3 days. We saw the lady at the conference center check in. We saw exactly one car on the road. That is it.This place is deserted. One other RV in the RV park, but never saw any people with it. The whole experience was just bizarre. A well kept base and not a soul to be seen.The Exchange was never open.The only laundromat was located next to the Exchange (not in the RV Park).No lights in the RV area.There were lights at the hotel close by.Nobody staying at the hotel though.We travel the country with our dog. Saw numerous signs saying dogs not allowed anywhere on base except the RV park.No walking around, no going to the fishing pier.Not sure why, nobody was around to be bothered by a dog. The hookups at your site are locked.They give you a key for them and the bath house when you check in. No cable, no WiFi in the RV area and $40 a night.Very unlike the dozens of military campgrounds we have visited in the past.

The people were great very friendly and helpful. The park itself is clean and well maintained and taken care of. Unfortunately for us every year for 2 or 3 days the mayflies come out and attach themselves to everything and it just so happened it started the day before we got there and ended the day after we left go figure. It really wasn't that bad the first afternoon when we were setting up and we sat out for a little and then went inside for the evening. We came out the next morning and our motorhome was covered with mayflies and we had to cover up to get unhooked and get out of there what a mess. Oh and did I tell you they smell like very smelly algae! Other than that it was a great overnight stay.

No shade at sites but they are clean. Picnic tables were shabby at best but next day team was on hand repairing and servicing them. Good beach nearby for nice walk, along with long Dock. We got lost getting there, just a mile or two, staff was friendly, and yes July & August are for NRA shooters championships, it would be a nice place to go and see if there were sites, which should be reserved only for prior military.

Nice campground, paved pads, full hookups, friendly staff. Clean and up to date bathhouse/restrooms. Walked around base which is open to the public with a small waterfront area for fishing. No ID check. Didn't bother checking out any other amenities since it was a one night stay. Little pricier than most other military facilities but still less than a KOA.

The campground is very nice and well kept. My big complaint is the treatment of military personnel during the national matches. Everybody gets kicked out including military if you're not a part of the matches. We have earned the right to be there. The staff (when I was there) wasn't very pleasant their answers when I asked why because i didn't know. We haven't been back since. The matches take up the best parts of the summer.

We stayed here July 2012. I called ahead to reserve 1 night because we needed to stay 1 night on our trip west. Reservations stated they were fully booked and would not have a site available until August 15 after the national shooting competition was over. We arrived 1 day later, decided to give it a try and there was 10 or more sites available :( The chowhall which is located 2 blocks from the RV site was open to all. They had an awesome Salad Bar for $5. I got 7 local TV channels using the RV antenna. Virgin Mifi 2200 worked well for Internet. Small PX/class 6 & laundromat is a 5 minute walk away.

W.B. left this review using the Directory software: Very nice and helpful staff at the Conference Center check in desk. Campground is very clean with paved pads & driveways. We've a 27' trailer w/full sized pu that fit well. The sewer hookups are a bit different than usual but work. All hookups are spread out and you've got to be a bit careful where you park so everything will hook up at the same time. We walked to the beach and Lake Erie may not be as polluted as years back, but I wouldn't swim in it on a bet. This was confirmed when we strolled through Port Clinton (5 mi. away) and could smell sewage every time we passed a storm sewer grate.

Camp Perry is located near some popular tourist locations such as Cedar Point Park. Perhaps that's why the cost is a little high at $28.82/night? The RV area is open field with few trees; however, very nicely maintained. Did not use the restrooms so no comment. Tennis courts are in need of repair. The park was 80% empty during our stay, just before the 4th of July weekend. It was nice enough, but too expensive and not enough things close by to entice me to a return visit.

Camp Perry has now began letting dogs into the campground. I enjoyed the stay except looking at dogs pooping. Would hate to know I had to follow a dog around the rest of my life cleaning up the poop, sure is something to look forward to.

My wife and I had no problem while staying at the camp. everyone that worked there that we encountered, who extremely friendly. we didn't expect much seeing that it is a guard base. we were very surprised. the exchange for its size was well supplied. the campground was very well maintained. the may flies were a pain but one can't control nature. we operated a concession trailer there and we were very well treated by all. we will be back next year when it warms a little more. the bath house was new and clean. our overall experience was extremely good.

My family camped overnight in a tent. When we checked in, the guy working the desk reminded me of the retarded policeman. He had no clue. He said they rarely use the tent spots, so they put us in a spot for an RV. This is OK, but this was the furthest spot from the bathrooms, and the lights from the adjacent dorms were bright and annoying. I asked to get closer, but the clerk would not do it. The bathrooms are brand new and very nice.

We stayed from 2 July through 10 July. Pros:The campground is very clean as was the bathhouse. It was cleaned and maintained daily. Lots of little plus like the small PX, beach, static displays, quiet and away from the regular RV park crowds. The spots were large, flat and easy to back in. Hook ups were easy to access. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Private access to the bath house via a key. Camp Perry is in a great location to tour all over the area. Cleveland, Toledo and Detroit are within easy driving distance as are all the local sites. The campground was never full while we were there and at one time was down to 5 campers. Cons: Of course, it is new so not much shade and you are surrounded by barracks that are lighted 24/7. The prohibition of bringing pets was a big disappointment and most likely will preclude us from returning. Even though this did not seem to be enforced during our stay, I observed at least three dogs in the campground. The keyed entry into the bathhouse is both a pro and con. It was a hassle if my wife and I needed the bathouse key at the same time. An easy fix would be to install cypher locks on the bathhouse doors and provide registered campers with the code.

Interesting open-gate Ohio National Guard operated facility where most facilities (lodging, Exchange, RV Park) are also open to the public. New "military" rates for RV park which are rank-related (O-6 is $36/night) and about "market price" for area. No pets permitted although several were there while we were there but when you call for reservation they will tell you "no pets". Base and RV park getting ready for July 12 arrival of NRA Shooting matches which fills Camp Perry for about a month or so every summer. During our time, RV park about half full. Sites ok - strange water/electric hookup locations. Lodging staff (Bonnie) very nice. They give you a key to unlock water/electric. Time of year for May Flies when we were there but not too much trouble although pretty much all over your RV. AAFES small exchange open during week - not big but nice inventory and staff. No other place to eat on Camp Perry. Crowd is minimal except during shooting match time partly due to limited effort/interest in advertising (said they are worried about being perceived as competing with local civilian RV parks). Not bad place if on your way - or maybe weekend on Lake Erie short vacation.

This is a National Guard post. Nice campground. We were the ONLY ones on it! Very nice RV/Lodging office worker. Told us to pick the RV site we wanted and then she gave us the key for the hookups. New bathhouse has been built and will be open soon. No cable but several TV stations are available. The gate was closed when we arrived -there was no gate guard present, but it wasn't blocked off so we could still go in. There is good signage at this small base. We drove by the PX, the laundry, the chapel, but they were closed when we arrived. The lodging and conference center where you check in, is open until 10pm. My husband was glad he had some pvc pipe available because the dump pipe is recessed in the ground about 10 inches. At $29, it is the most expensive military installation we have stayed at, but it is still cheaper than area RV parks. It is quiet as it sits way back from the road. It is directly behind the lodge. As we left, we noticed that there is a "Camouflage Cafe" with a sign that said open, however we didn't stop.

When we arrived we were the only campers. Only one other camper arrived in our 3 day weekend stay. The parking pads are long, level and paved. We had good water pressure and 50 amp service. The sewer connections are considerably forward and we had to park somewhat forward to allow our sewer hose to reach the dump. The dump pipe is inside an 8 inch hole and recessed about 10 inches. If you have an L connection on the end of your sewer hose, it won't connect without taking it off or installing some sort of extension. Overall, it was new, quiet and very clean. There are no laundry or bath facilities. I felt it it was overpriced at $29 a night and inquired at the desk. I was told this is due to having no federal funding and it is competitive for the local area. We had average Verizon cell phone coverage and Verizon Broadband Internet connection. This is no Wifi and no Internet connection in the Lodge. A beach is nearby but a sign is posted warning that Lake Erie is contaminated and cautioned pregnant women and children not to swim. We found everyone very courteous.
