Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
May 5 Been comin here 30 years!! by Jennifer
My parents had taken me to Sterling state park since I was a young child. When I had my daughter in 2000 she was only 6 days old her 1st time coming here (I took her in the water with me and everything, n now she is a great swimmer, always joke that it was because of this) and now we are planning on having her 13th bday party out there!!! There are problems with biting flys but bug spray reapplied fairly often helps alot!! We love coming here. Came out for the fireworks a couple times also...one time there was a huge thunderstorm n we just covered with the blanket n waited it out n watched the fireworks from the water after the storm... good times!!

May 28 Nice park by C in Waterford
I feel that some of the reviews were written in haste. If you do not research the available sites and are just assigned one you may not get the area you want. There is more than one circle to camp in. THe field is just one. They have many sites available that are in full shade. THis is one of my favorite parks, the facilities are great. Of course they mow on Sunday afternoon... most people are not sleeping on Sunday afternoon. It is not their fault you happened to be. I have camped in tent there several times, and have been in a lovely area with trees and paths. It is very nice. Be careful how you belittle a business due to one bad experience and next time do your homework and choose a better spot.
July 13 No what we expected at all by Tent Living
We were very disappointed in the fact that there was no shade to be had on our site (which I believe is advertised as some shade on website). We have a tent and baked all the time we were there. Our only relief was the beach and the water. The lack of trash containers was unbelievable for as many campers that were there. We noticed quite a few rules being broken while we were there and not enforcement, ie. dogs on the beach, alcohol in the park and the people beside us were not considerate of other campers, their dog was barking (approx 10 feet from our tent) while we were trying to sleep and the kids were yelling back and forth. Also, mowing of grounds taking place on a Sunday afternoon (we are trying to nap) We did enjoy the trail around one of the lakes, clean restrooms and showers (also great setup) and the beach was nice, but we were very disappointed in the over all setting (one big open field, not mentioned on website). We are pretty sure we will not be using this park again.

great place if you like to bake in the sun, not a tree on any site,dnr very rude
July 3 Shell seeking place for Children of all
Children of all ages can enjoy both swimming and shell seeking, while enjoying your waters of Lake Erie. A beautiful spot to camp, cook out and let the kids run free...
November 9 TRAILS by Thomas
Awesome trails thru lagoons .Definitely would go back in each season .I would recommend to friends .
June 26 A wonderful park. A Lake Erie Gem. by The Bakkkers of Newport MI.
A very clean park, great rest rooms, and a well thought out campground. Super trails for walking and biking. The staff is couteous and knowledgable.
I highly recommend this park to anyone. The beach does get crowded on the weekends so weekdays are best if you can.
