Lakeside Chautauqua – A Most Unique Camping Experience!

Lakeside Chautauqua – A Most Unique Camping Experience!

Come with us to the Lake Erie shoreline in Ohio and experience Chautauqua Lakeside, a 143-year-old gated summer community that began as a campground and still is one today – along with hundreds of charming cottages, recreational, spiritual, educational and entertainment activities.
Our experience was very positive but it got us thinking and wondering what other RVers think of such a place, with lots of organized activities but plenty of space and time for relaxation.
They have a 7 year wait for a seasonal spot there and that got us wondering about how many RVers would like a seasonal spot in an RV park or development. They also have overnight spots available. but reservations are needed.
