Nice park in northeastern Ohio. Many full timers here, well kept sites. RV and tent sites. Park has three main areas on each side of a corps of engineers dam and lake. Free paddle boats and canoes. Short term RV's are in the first section to the right. Sites gravel, level, small wood decks. Most all pull throughs. Satellite friendly. Since the campground is on both sides of a small lake, you will need a golf cart (rent) or car to get around the park. No pool but a nice swimming lake. Very large well kept K-9 off leash area. New upgraded wifi, park wide that works. Park very quiet. Many planned activities. Mostly a weekend park. Interior roads gravel, easy to navigate. Small camp store, basic soda and munchies. Verizon and T-Mobile signals. FHU's to rear of site good. This is generally a local campground, but worth a stop if your in this area. Found staff and residents very friendly. - wtravlr1

Seems like a very nice park, only downside would be the one shower house with flush toilets. Only stayed one night as we were passing through but am tempted to stay here again for a longer stay, it sounds like there are a number of water activities available for rent (kayak, sup, etc).
Spot was good for the night but it may have been different if someone was in the site next to us. Positive of being in open section is we could see the kids at the playground from our site so they could get some energy out while we set up. - TDC

Very pretty, well-maintained campground with most sites in forested area. A handful (mostly in camping area 1) have lakeside views. A few sites at the start of each camping area are in the sun. The only thing preventing a score of 10 was that for more than 230 sites total, they have just one shower house with flush toilets (and a couple of laundry machines). There are vault toilets in the camping loops (which I could smell when walking by some of them). Easy drive or bike ride (or a long walk) to the marina and, a bit beyond that, the dog park/beach (which looks really nice). Good Verizon and OTA TV signals. Two-way road throughout park and camping loops so very easy to navigate. Most sites are roomy enough for larger rigs. - aowcarol

My wife and I really enjoy this park. It does not have a lot of amenities, but it is clean with large semi-secluded camping spots cut into the forest (most of the sites are in the forest) however, there are some sites in an open area. If you want one of the more secluded sites I would avoid 1 - 4, 37 - 47, 93 - 106, and 128 - 131. The campground has 1 rather nice bathroom/showerhouse with laundry machines. The rest of the park has vault toilets which I find to be unpleasant. If you are tent camping here I would recommend a site close to the showerhouse. - GregT44266

Although Kool Lakes Campground wasn't fully operational when we visited at season opening (we'll forgive them for a bad preceding winter), we had a great time. It has some newly renovated restrooms, but also some shabby, in-need-of-repair facilities, as well. The playground and swimming lake were great. Access to Nelson-Kennedy Ledges was awesome, just minutes down the street. Our campsite was spacious and we took advantage of the big ball field across the way. - JPolisena

This is a nice park mostly seasonal. Very nice seasonal sites. Weekender sites are grass with some stones. Swim lake is very clean, bathrooms are clean. Owners are very nice. They have a phone on the front of the office that rings to one of their cell phones so they can be reached 24 hours. The kitchen is open on weekends: the cheese steaks are great. They also live on site. We will camp here again. - camper1

We also were charged more then the rate stated on the web site. We asked why and were ignored. Site was not level at our "premium" site. Gravel roads dusty. Restroom facilities are OK in center of park. Lots of traffic all day and night. Good Wi-Fi. Close to am Amish community which had a meat market EXCELLENT meat but priced much like a grocery store. Here for a week; probably NOT stay here again. - Trikki Rikki

This is the worst campground I have ever stayed at. There are only primitive facilities available, and these outhouses are filthy! There are no glass bottles allowed at this park and they will search your car and cooler when you arrive. There is trash all over the sites. The other campers are rude and permitted to do whatever they want. Most did not sleep and partied very loudly all night. Many did not purchase firewood, but chose to tear down branches and knock over saplings in our campsite in the middle of the night. We were not able to sleep at all due to the screaming and loud music. The staff did warn us about the more "wild kids," and we did attempt to camp as far away as possible. It did not matter. Thank goodness they don't allow glass bottles. I would never bring a child to this campground and will never be returning myself. The kind of people that this campground attracts have ruined the nearby and beautiful Nelson Kennedy Ledges State Park. - dneidert

Be warned the park does not have WIFI or cable TV. Verizon HotSpot did work. Satellite TV did not work but using the Verizon, we could stream Netflix. Park is large, sites large enough, very wooded. We didn't use any other facilities so have no opinion. Park is clean and quiet. Convenient to the highway. - UllaPool

We picked this park because it had a playground and a place to swim. The playground is excellent with numerous apparatus for different age levels. The lake not so nice, the bottom is slimy and the "beach" is nothing but dirt. The campground is mostly level but the roads are very rough, The sites are gravel and uneven so water tends to sit after it rains. The wires in a few places are low, so much so, that I watched someone coming in get caught up in the wire crossing the road. The "pull thru" sites are front back ones making them a little confusing, especially the connections and which to use. Our neighbors were very noisy into the evening with their motorcycles and music, the park seems to cater to lots of seasonal and day workers. The sites are mostly treed. - HRambler

Arrived late and left early, due to tight travel plans. Lots of tall trees, very level grounds, gated. Didn't have a chance to meet staff, but they were super helpful over the phone. Tons of vintage playground equipment, a bit rough around the edges, but kids didn't mind. Swimming pond looked nice but we didn't have a chance to use. Easy pull thru sites. - GMC_STRIPES

The restrooms were older and probably a little harder to keep clean, but they were acceptable. Our site was level with central hook ups. The wif worked ok at the site as did the tv antenna. Reception for AT & T phones was good. Use the directions in the PA book as GPS will take you to a low overhang. - Al and Anne-Marie

This is a beautiful park, lots of trees and a gorgeous, private lake in the middle with a fountain that was lighted at night. You felt like you were way out in the woods, the sites are very generously spaced and partially shaded. There are lots of squirrels running around, one afternoon I just sat out and watched them. The only complaints I have are that one morning the water pressure was really low, and the last day there were intermittent whiffs of a horrible stench from the sewer. I walked to the office and reported it to the girl, who said "the guys are doing something with the sewer, I will talk to them." It was better after that. Also, entering the park, a couple of the turns were a little tight for us (42 footer) and my husband had to stop and back up a couple of times in one turn due to some full timers marking their flower beds with rocks and bricks, but once we got to our site, we were fine. They have a gated entry which is nice so you know everyone driving in the park has an RV there. I would certainly camp here again! - overogal

We used this as a stop over to and from the midwest. Nice campground with a good size fishing pond. It is pretty in the front where we stayed. The back half looks a little rundown as this is where the permanents are located. Trash bins were smelly both times and located at the bathrooms. Owner was very nice and accommodating. We had an issue with our coach when leaving the first time and he was very helpful with advice and directions. We would stay again. - FT Travelers3

Mostly seasonal sites but a few for overnighters. We stayed 4 nites, visiting friends and family in the area. $5.00 per person visitor is a bit much. No sewer but does have a dump station or someone comes and empties tanks for you for $25.00, which we did. Site was large and had a fire ring and picnic table. Quiet, clean park and will stay here again. Its end of season so I am assuming why most residents weren't here. - Ohiojude

This park has been renamed "Hidden Lakes Family Campground". Stayed here for 2 nights while attending the Great Lakes Medieval Faire. A good solid place to stay. Hidden Lakes is geared more for seasonal campers, but does have a large selection of non seasonal sites. "Pull through" site is actually 2 back in sites. Site had 30 amp electrical and water. No sites have sewer, but they have a dump station that is easy to use or a truck that comes around and will empty you tanks (for a fee). Wi-Fi is available for a fee ($4 per day) I did not use the Wi-Fi so I cannot comment on whether is is good or not. We would stay here again. - BounderPounder

Staff is most agreeable and helpful. We got lost and were very late arriving. We called her and she waited for us, led us to our campsite near the restrooms/showers and made sure we were set up before she left. Facilities clean and small lakes inviting. We were very pleased with our stay both nights. We used this as a base for touring the sites in nearby Kirtland. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. The Canadian geese were plentiful and so was their droppings, but by staying in the gravel driveway and walkways we could avoid it. This is really a nice place. - jlp9mm

This park has major water issues. Everywhere you walked (let alone drive) was a marsh. We were told first come first serve, picked a site, got set up, then told we had to move that someone else requested that site. Roads are narrow and sites only have gravel enough for under camper. Tried another site and was so narrow and wet our truck and camper sank and nearly got stuck. They have low power lines at back of sites (which are also not long enough for most 5th wheels). Indoor pool is nice, but no restrooms anywhere. Lake is very nice. Joined as coast to coast, nothing but lies. Sites are very close together. Just upgraded electric so it is actually usable now, but they charge an additional fee per night now. Terrible campground! - Djesky

If I had not read the reviews I would not have known how to get in the gate. The lady who checked us in was nice but seemed to be in a hurry it was 2 pm... she rushed through signing us in. We had to ask where we were to go and if there was anything going on. She never gave us a code to get back in if we left and the office wasn't open the next day. They also close pool on Tuesday's...ridiculous!! You can't get to anything on Tuesday...nothing! Can't get into fitness area to workout. Now the good...electric was new and good, hookups were good. Site was nice. The park itself was very clean. We would come back again. - DebT

Rate reflects Coast to Coast plus friend rate. Check-in was delayed because electric gate was down and no one was in the guard house. Another camper behind me came up to tell me that I had to press a button to get an answer. Once in, the check-in at the office was easy.
We were directed to the camping area that is advertised as pull-through. It is pull-through only if there is not another camper on the other end of your site. It is "first come, first serve" and many campers had taken too much space, so that limited the options on which sites were actually usable. Available sites were back-in, so unhooking the toad was mandatory.
Our neighbors at the site informed us that another motor home had pulled into the site and left after a short time. We soon learned why. Hooking up to the water was an ordeal because the wooden support for the hose bibs had rotted off at ground level so that left the outlet hose as the only support for four outlets. The 30 amp service was not usable. Measured voltage was only 103 volts at the pedestal. Attempting to change the refrigerator from gas to electric reduced the voltage in the motorhome to 85 volts. Clearly, the attempted use for the AC unit would probably damage the unit.
Complaints to management resulted in them reassigning us to a different section of the campground, with the caveat being that they couldn't promise anything. We inspected the newly assigned sites and they were normal household 20 amp receptacles. Before moving the unit, I measured the voltage which was only 104 Volts.
It was clear that staying at this campground was not a viable option, given the temperature and the need to use our normal appliances without risking damage to them.
This campground was well kept for the permanent residents. The section for others was anything but that. The grass needed mowing and the water and electric service was abysmal.
We left and will never visit this campground again. - Lakewood90

We stayed at Brady’s Leap Travel Plaza which is on the south side of the Ohio Turnpike. There are about 6 back-in sites, maximum length of 40 ft, located in a separate RV section. There is electricity at the site and a dump station and water available at the end of the parking area. Payment is cash only in a kiosk in this area. The travel plaza building is just a short walk away and has food, a shop, and restrooms. This a convenient overnight stop when traveling along the Ohio Turnpike. - JoyceM

We were traveling in late November and every RV Park within 30 miles of the Interstate was closed for the winter, so we opted to overnight here. Since it was snowing and freezing, we were glad to have 50-amp electric hookups to keep our heat working and our batteries charged overnight. Our 41-foot motorhome with four slides easily fit in the site, with our tow car parked alongside. Things would have been snug if we had neighbors but we were alone. Our site was completely level, and the 50-amp power worked well, though voltage was a bit low (~112V) when we had multiple appliances running. It's an Interstate Rest Area, so there isn't much to say other than it was convenient, not too noisy, and got the job done. There's a free dump station and fresh water fill as well. We refilled our diesel at the Rest Area before leaving in the morning. The only inconvenience was the need to unhook our car and back into the site. - LifeRebooted

We travel in a 40' MH with a small towed vehicle, so keep in mind my comments are from that perspective. This particular service plaza RV area (eastbound, Brady's Leap) is not a great value. We have stayed at two Ohio plazas with RV accommodations this year, and this one is at the bottom of the two by a large margin. First of all, not every spot has 50 amp. It appears that every other spot is wired for 50 amp, but I won't swear to it. I did not realize this until after I had set up the MH and attempted to plug in. We moved to another spot that did have 50 amp, but discovered that one leg of the 50 amp plug was dead. Our third attempt was the charm. The RV sites here slope severely front to back. Normally, I would not deploy my levelers in an area such as this as a consideration/courtesy to the provider, but I paid $20 and the slope was way more than just noticeable. I could not get level without lifting the rear wheels off the pavement, which we all know is a no-no for a MH. I leveled to the extent I could do so safely, which left a lot of room for improvement. I applaud the Ohio Turnpike commission for having areas set aside for RVs. I think that is a great thing and I have not encountered that before in my interstate travels. I only wish the sites were more level and consistent with the electric. If the rates were $10 or even $15 I might not be so critical, but $20 is a threshold amount and I expect more at that price. I do not think we will stay at this particular plaza again. - USMCRET

Off season stay, so campground office was not open on our arrival. Campground employee came by our site on day 2 to make sure all was in order. Getting level on our site was a challenge, but we were prepared after reading several other reviews. Grounds are well kept, and facilities are older but functional. Numerous restrooms, shower house, and laundries are spread throughout the park. Great park to walk trails or streets. Fishing, boating, golf were available even in off-season. Park was quiet in evenings. We would return, but make sure to carefully select our site. - Movgfwd

This is a very nice park, but the campground is OK at best. The park is very large with lots of activities including golf, archery, fishing, disc golf, hiking, etc. For the campground, be very sure to read the details of the site when reserving a spot! Most of the sites have only 20 amp hookups and no water! There are faucets throughout the campground to get water. The 20 amp circuit breaker is very weak and we had to reset our breaker many times when we used the microwave or hair dryer. They do have a few sites with 30 amp and full hookup. We were in site 154 (top of the hill near the water tower) and this area is mostly unshaded for easy satellite view and has good cell service. Other areas are not. - Chuck Shrader

It really depends on your site on how you feel about this campground. We were in Site 8 and had a level shady private spot. The site next to us was right on top of the people next to them. Lots of the fire rings were on a small level spot that wouldn't even allow a chair to be set next to the ring. We had full hook up and short walk to bathroom. Not all bathrooms have a shower. Spot 25 had a nice view of the lake. Nice paved roads for bike riding, they are a little hilly. Camp store was well stocked. Kayak and Canoe rentals available. Fishing dock by the check in. Large visitor parking lot. They are VERY STRICT about no parking on the grass. Some tent sites were on top of a steep hill with parking at bottom of hill. - Jan Orlando
