Lock 30 Woodlands RV Campground Resort

Added by camprate admin

6 reviews

Imagine camping in the scenic, sandstone hills of northeastern Ohio, just an hour from Pittsburgh and two from Cleveland, yet worlds away from city stress, traffic, and congestion. Enjoy scenic pine forest and secluded campsites big enough to park the largest RV on the road, and wide enough to push out 3 slides without cramping your neighbor. Sit under your awning with a cool lemonade, relaxed enough that you want to stay on that lawn chair, in front of the campfire, year-round! Or sip your morning coffee while walking your dog, a stone’s throw from the mile of river that winds through Lock 30 Woodlands. It’s all yours, whether you camp in a tent, in an RV or in our deluxe, furnished poolside residence. We offer 60 sites with unparalleled views of Little Beaver Creek, one of the few river and wildlife corridors in the United States impressive enough to be distinguished by the United States Department of the Interior as a Nationally Designated Wild and Scenic River. We’re Lock 30, an actual lock on the Historic Sandy & Beaver Canal and one of the few remaining historic locks of the Erie Canal system– canals replaced in the late 1800s by the mighty railroads, but still alive in the hearts of nostalgic history buffs. No one camps in front of you and no one camps behind you. Our site development is indeed unique: just 60 sites on 60 acres! Swim, fish, hike, bird-watch, pick herbs in the landscaped gardens, ride the trails or join your children at the playground or on the Bocce court. Stroll the towpath of the river; take in the fall colors in this prolific 20-acre wildlife conservation area, accessible only to those camping on this private, family-owned property, surrounded by conservation easements. Every RV site has 50 amp electric, water and sewer. Every site has mature trees and a front yard and back yard that is yours to enjoy with your family. Lock 30: the highest rated campground in the tri-state area.

We stayed at Lock 30 so we could go to the flea market at Rogers Ohio on Friday and the Shaker Woods Festival on Saturday. We did stop to check out the restrooms and showers. They were clean. The pool looked great. The weather was rainy the three days we were there so we did not use the pool. We had site #4 that had concrete that our rv was on and also under the picnic table. We used our shower in the rv. We brought our own fire wood that was wooden blocks and not cut trees. Our neighbor bought fire wood from the campground that they thought was kind of pricey. It cost them $20 for a load that was delivered on a golf cart. It was pine that was cut on the property. If you bring you Direct tv satellite system leave it in your vehicle. The campground is so heavily wooded you can't get a signal. We got two channels with the roof mounted antenna.

All the campgrounds we have stayed at, the charge is for 2 people with additional people paying a fee including visitors.

Our stays at Lock 30 have been fantastic. The quiet picturesque setting was just what we are looking for. After check in I had no need for the office staff to give me details on how to camp, so why would it matter if the office staff had ”camping experience”. The young lady was professional, courteous and explained to us that we pay for what we use with our electricity. More then what we could say about other places where the front desk people are rude. Thank you to a campground that doesn’t make those of us who conserve our electricity usage pay for those who need to light the world while camping. I guess I am not a needy camper so irregular office hours didn’t bother me.

We go camping to get away from the world so we could care less if the “Owner and staff are extremely impersonal” , we didn’t go there to be friends with them, we go there for the amenities which are top notch. Why would you care where the owner lives as long as the bathrooms are clean, nice amenities and off the beaten path without the hustle and bustle. The Olympic size pool is clean, the bathrooms are clean, the grounds are clean, and the professional size bocce court and the landscaping is fabulous.

I guess if you are a camper that needs to be entertained by someone else then Lock 30 isn’t the place for you to go. If you want to go someplace where the city lights are NOT blaring down on you and you can get back to nature with top notch facilities, then Lock 30 Woodlands RV Resort is the place to go. We have stayed there every year for the last 8 years and watched this place blossom.

This campground is highly recommended from a seasoned 30+ year camper.

Not a friendly place

Date:

October 13, 2008

Less than 100 site seasonal and weekend campground. Property is beautiful but drives happy campers away because of poor management and high fees. Owner lives out of state and onsite management has no camping experience. Neither are in touch with what camping is all about. Both are impersonal, insulting and rude. With the exception of 2 or 3 holiday weekends, this campground is empty. Any longtime camper knows this is a pretty good indication of it's flaws. Lock 30 comes off as a business investment rather than pleasant place for a happy camping family. Conversations with fellow visitors to Lock 30 indicate the same reasons for weekend campers not returning and majority of seasonal campers pulling out to greener pastures. Beware - websites are deceiving.

Rustic adventure!

Count me in as one of the guys who tried to get in three times before I could get a last-minute reservation. It was worth it. Level, huge sites, biking trails and a great bocce court –maybe a hundred feet long. Only problem for a city person like me—used to bright lights and street noise-- is the woods is so quiet and dark at night that it is scary!

Best Camping in Ohio

Date:

August 21, 2007

My wife and I have camped all over the country, so we’ve seen the best and the worst. Lock 30 was a real surprise. We were there in June. Our plan was to travel through Ohio as quickly as possible, but after our first day at Lock 30, we decided to cancel our reservations in Vermont. The scenery at the campground is worth the stay alone, but the huge pool and clubhouse are more like what you see at nice hotels. We were told they are open year round. We’ll return in the fall to see the colors.
