New at Camping...well kind of !! North East Ohio


My family (wife, and two sons, 6.5yrs and 4yrs) have owned a 2007 Flagstaff 28BH for about 4 years....and have used it about 9 times

We actually feel we started camping just a few years to early...wasn't alot of fun while changing diapers, trying to turn the campsite into a baby friendly zone, etc. !!

This year we have decided to give this another try!! Our boys are a bit older, they both like to explore, find bugs, go fishing, etc. We need to find a good campground that we can get to in under an hour with loads of things to do.

Has anyone been to Shenango Valley RV park ?(

Any real reviews would be great. Website looks good, but that can be misleading.
How are the owners, activities, etc?

Thanks and glad to be back !

We have never been there but have heard good things about it from friends who have gone. We spend a lot of time at Shenango Lake Recreation Area. Our kids are older so we don't need all of the organized activities at campgrounds....more into a quiet kayak ride on the lake!

Welcome to the forum! Glad to hear you are giving camping/RVing a second chance. Lots of good family memories are ahead.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

I use this site for reviews and to review parks we visit... the camp you asked about should be there.

Welcome from another NE Ohio buckeye, we're southeast of cleveland. Mohican State Park off of i71 is one of our local favorites.

We sold our popup after having our daughter. Camping with a baby was miserable. We bought our camper last year when our daughter was 3 and son was 2. It was work but still fun. This summer should be even more diapers!

We bought had a pop-up for a season in 2011 and decided to upgrade to our fifth wheel. We had an 8 year old in the pop-up. On June 1, we had our son. On July 14, we took delivery of our fifth wheel. After that we put 50 nights in the camper before the year was up.

We'll see what 2013 brings, but I doubt it'll be less camping! :-)
