Portage is a bit too close the Akron metropolis.  Be sure to check directions!

Before going to Portage, check the danged directions!  It is not obvious from a map how to get there!  You have to get off Exit 120 and hit 619 west.  The park is not "bad".  It is also not "good".  Lots of hillbilly pseudo-families.  Very hot and no electricity.  Mary drove her car and we drove to the beach ... about 15 minutes away.  Without a car ... well ... fish and maybe some on-road biking but not much else.
