Camping at Alive is the way to go. From good old festival car camping to luxury-style glamping, we’ve got you covered with all sorts of awesome options.
If you’re camping, you’ll be staying at Atwood Lake Park, a beautiful, 300+ acre campground located 30 minutes south of Canton, Ohio. The park is surrounded by a stunning 1,500-acre lake with a sandy beach and swimming, boating plus many other fun things to do. The campground has open and wooded campsites plus paved roads and lighted walkways. Rentals for pontoon boats, kayaks, paddleboards, fishing boats and sport boats are also available online.
