Beautiful park, obviously has been here many years, but generally kept up very well. Lots of improvements over time. Some site faucets old and leaked. WiFi spotty in places. Was placed in a very small site, had to park TV away from trailer. Staff friendly and accommodating. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Really enjoyed our stay. Great spot for all the things we wanted to see and do. Staff was always working on the park and it really showed. The weekends get very busy. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a large park with a wide range of sites. Our site had a covered patio with table, fire pit and a gas grill. The site was quite long with a good gravel base and level enough not to need cribbing. The interior roads do need some work to fill in the holes. When approaching this park on Route 528 from I-90 you will see a sign directing you to turn left after a couple of miles. I don't recommend you take this as it becomes a rutted dirt road. Continue on into Thompson, go around the square and onto Thompson Road to Ledge Road which is also a dirt road but you only have to travel a half mile. This is a good park for families. Although it's a long (one hour) trip into Cleveland, there aren't many other choices in the area. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

One of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in. We had a deluxe site with patio, table and chairs, swing, barbeque, nice patio, potted flowers and a fireplace. The grounds are well taken care of and pleasing to the eye. The wifi was good, Verizon worked well, cable was OK, OTA did not work well. Power located at the rear of the site. It may take an extension cord or extra hose for some RVs. Small store with pizza and other items to eat. We would stay here again. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

This a beautiful park. Well maintained and managed. Do NOT trust your GPS coming from the west on 90. It takes you way out of your way if you take exit 200. Take exit 212 and it's only 4 miles. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Great campground with lots to do. Very well maintain, but lots of permanent trailers here too. People are very helpful. Site not very level, but all the services work well. This is a large campground with a very nice pool, club house and fishing lake. The kids love the bounce pillow. Dog area is very nice and secure. We are just passing through but would be nice to stay here for a few days. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Well off the beaten path; no one mentions that the last 1.2 miles is on a gravel road! But it is quiet, even with kids playing. Well manicured grounds with loads of flowers in baskets and planted around the pool/office area. We had a very nice lakeside patio site with nice furniture, grill, flower baskets. We saw 4 mowers working one day while here. WiFi and cable very good. My only negative is the large number of seasonals. But we would likely return if in the area.

We have stayed here before and will return. Short drive off I-90. Owners and staff are pleasant and accommodating. Park is clean, well maintained and offers a wide range of fun activities for all. Several great events took place while we were there, and they had great plans for the rest of the summer. Electric, Water and Sewer were good. Interior roads were easy to navigate. Pull throughs are easy to get in/out. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at Thompson KOA for only 1 night in a pull thru. We pulled in to check in and on the side of the fence was grapes growing! We were escorted to our site and the owner showed us some of the amenities in the area. Great Kamp K9 for the pooches too. Great WiFi. We took a walk to the well stocked camp store and sat and relaxed in a swing right beside the huge lake. We saw tee-pees and many cabins. They have the most amazing restrooms I have ever seen at a campground! They were immaculate and had character! They even have a doggy wash area. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy the trails and the area. A bit off the beaten path but so worth it! This was one of our all time favorite campgrounds.

Nice campground and staff. 20, 30 and 50 amp. Cable TV. Good Wifi. Good water pressure. I was in a new area that had a long pull through and spacious site. 2 sewer connections also for those that need it. Staff kept the campground clean. Nice place for an extended stay.

Tips for other Campers:

Used this campground as a base to go to Pro Football hall of fame in Canton, about 1 1/2 hrs away and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Did both in one day leaving @ 7 AM for Canton and the afternoon in Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Many nice wineries in the area. We enjoyed dinner and wine, (beer available), at the Grand River Winery near the campground. A super Walmart in the small town of Madison not far away.

We actually stayed here twice, on the outbound and return legs of our trip. The first was planned, the second a last-minute change of plans due to weather. Both times the visit was pleasant and serene. On the second visit, a "computer error" put us in a new area of the campground that wasn't supposed to be open yet. The owner honored the online reservation, however, and personally escorted us to the site, and helped us set up. Gravel was still loose, needed final fill around sewer, etc. Leveling was slightly difficult, but I'm sure this would be fixed by the time the site was officially available. The brand-new bathrooms next door were sparkling clean. Yes, I would love to visit again. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

As others have said, follow the GPS and use Mosely road, not the KOA sign. Cuts out almost all of the gravel road.

We stopped here on an overnight to southern Ohio. It's about a 5 mile drive off I-90. The hosts are very friendly and have a great personality - very fun to chat with. The campground is in excellent shape. Very modern, clean and visually appealing.

Cable TV is going to be installed within the next couple of weeks. Golf cart rentals are available at the office. This is the first park I've seen do this but wished they all did.

The park looks like it has a lot to offer as far as recreation and activities. Very nice fire rings are at every site. Our site was very level and it looks like they all were. There were some nicely shaded sites.

The Wi-Fi we found to be very spotty. We would have to reconnect to a different available network at times and the speed was not all that impressive. Cell service (Verizon) was LTE in some spots and 3G in others. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Motorhome.
