Lakewood Village Resort

14296 Cemetery Road
Wapakoneta, OH 45895
419-738-5000

We paid $10 per night with our Coast to Coast membership for a water, electric and sewer site. Our DirecTV and Verizon phones and MiFi worked perfectly.

We had made this reservation months ago but for some reason there was a glitch attached that we were not aware of until we checked in. Coast to Coast members are not allowed through the holiday weekends, but since ours was made and confirmed, they honored it, which was a very nice thing to do. But, because of this they sent us to the very back area which was not as manicured as the other areas and we soon found out that it was where all the campers came on the weekend. It was also an area that was not patrolled often and that had many long termers who did not keep their sites up.

The staff worked hard keeping the restrooms, laundry room and other areas clean during a very busy Memorial Weekend, they should be highly commended. Once the holiday was over we opted to move to another site up close to the pool where it was much nicer.

Their pet policy of “Pets must be on a leash no longer than 10 feet at all times.“ was not enforced especially over the weekend but we noticed at other times as well. Many folks allowed their dogs to run free, grant it for the most part we noticed these dogs stayed in their area but since they were loose it made me feel uncomfortable to walk freely around the campground.

Even though with the few concerns about this park, if we are ever in the area again, we would stay here but it is one of those parks that refer itself as a resort and it really is a campground.

We are planning on going there in two weeks for the first time. It does not sound that good, but I guess we will give it a try. We will be going in under AOR.

The sites up front by the pool are good, the staff is wonderful, but in the back on Memorial Weekend was challenging to say the least.

Nice that they let you in at that price, but too bad you had to take a less than desirable site.

You seem to have had a good time despite the lemons you got. It's all about having a good outlook on life (and wheels under your house).
