The tradition of singing around the campfire arose when ancient agriculturists converged each night to rehash the inventory of Old Mac Donald's farm. Start your own camping ritual with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a one-night stay in a four-person cabin at Camp Sandusky (up to a $49.29 value). This deal is not valid for deluxe air-conditioned cabins or cabins with refrigerators.
From its nestling point near Lake Erie’s sandy shores, Camp Sandusky stakes traditional campground fun beside modern amenities. Rustic, Amish-built cabins bunk brigades of four in simple style with included electricity and bring-your-own-bedding sleeping. Guests can barbecue on a private charcoal grill, chow down at their cabin's picnic table, and roast s’mores or expired Cheetos over the fire pit (firewood available for purchase). Satisfy aqueous desires at the on-site pool, or take in the great indoors from the air-conditioned game room. A flock of bunnies bounce around the bunny farm, munching food (available for purchase) and accepting strokes of their lucky feet. Practice dribbling, spiking, and sandbag flopping at the basketball, sand volleyball, and cornhole courts, or best your record slide speed at the newly renovated playground.
Friendly front-desk folks can assist campers with charting off-camp itineraries, from lazing away a day with rod and hook on Lake Erie to loop-de-looping at Cedar Point amusement park, located only 10 minutes away. Rise and shine for an all-you-can-syrup pancake breakfast ($3.95) before a day of on- or off-camp pursuits.
A family wakes up and walks outside, standing just beneath the willow tree that drapes over their cabin, deliberating the day's activities. Just yesterday, the clan rode some of the world's tallest roller coasters at Cedar Point. Today, maybe they'll opt for something more cultured, like a visit to the Thomas Edison Museum, or take a ferry to Kelleys Island. Perhaps they'll go to Monsoon Lagoon Waterpark and challenge each other with bumper boats to get some relief from the sun.
Camp Sandusky puts campers within short drives of these and other area attractions around the Lake Erie shore and the Port Clinton/Marblehead area. The campground's more than 200 sites accommodate outdoorsmen ranging from primitive campers to RV owners seeking full WESC hookups. Additionally, more than 100 Amish-built cabins include pet-friendly and deluxe models equipped with air conditioning. Amenities span bathroom and shower facilities, wireless Internet access throughout the grounds, a heated pool, and a bunny farm where kids can pet and feed rabbits. Camp Sandusky also posts an online FAQ page to anticipate guests' questions such as "Can I bring my own firewood?" and "Is there a blow dryer in case my firewood gets wet?"
