                                         COUNTRY ACRES CAMPGROUND
                                                            Ravenna, Ohio

This is our first campsite, so I have nothing to compare it to except for personal preference.   

We choice this campsite, because it was close to our apartment. We knew that we would have to drive back and forth to move everything we wanted to take with us. We wanted to take small steps in the transformation of our new lifestyle and not jump into it and find ourselves overwhelmed from day one. 

We got lucky, they had two seasonal site left. We took the bigger site with grass over a smaller one with only gravel rocks. The site has water and electric, but no sewer. With a small fee we have it pumped once a week by the campground. If we need to we can pump into our tote tanks and dump it. The overall fee for single use once a week for five moths was more than the fee to have someone else do it for us, so we went with the lesser cost. 

                   The main office is also a small store, DVD rental and a one-for-one book exchange.

The entrance is secure with a key-card gate. There is a $10.00 fee, but when you checkout you will get refunded. This is done to replace any key-cards that visitors might take with them when they leave. Also, when you first enter the road split in three different ways with lots of one way roads. After entering a few times it pretty easy.

Activities: During the week, there is none scheduled. Friday and Saturday, there is lots to do. Friday nights are movie night. This is a family campground so the movies are rated G-PG and are newer releases. Saturday is full of activities to do. There is arts and craft, kids BINGO followed by Adult BINGO, hayride the goes around the park and tops off the night with entertainment either live band, talent show, karaoke, or special event like Christmas in July or Halloween in September.  

                  The is a gym, basketball court, pool, jump pillow and a water balloon launcher.   

For dog lovers there is a dog park. There is a large lake for fishing. However, there is a catch and release policy and NO night fishing allowed.

If you are young or old, with children or not and like a small town quite campsite this place is for you.
