Very nice park not too far from Cincinnati. Very quiet at night even on the 4th of July (maybe due to ban on campfires due to fire hazard). Make sure you have at least a 50' water hose, since water hookups are shared between sites. Mixture of very large sites to average size sites. Some sites are not level, although the grade is usually front to back rather than side to side. Be sure to check out the museum and learn about the park's importance in paleontology.

This park seems to be experiencing the results of state budget cuts. The camp office is only staffed for about 8 hours a day. The campsites are situated in loops all branching of a main camp access road. Shower houses in Loops E thru L were closed due to problems with the water & sewer system, however porta potties were in place. Shower houses in Loops A thru D were open. (We stayed in loop B.) The restrooms and showers did not seem to be cleaned some days. We were told by the staff that the miniature golf course should be avoided because bees had taken over some of the holes. The camp swimming beach has just pit toilets and no other facilities. No camp programs other than a movie (Bambi) once a week. The state should consider permanently closing some loops and concentrate on maintaining the others. Good points: Most sites are large and have level parking pads. Campground very empty the 8 days we stayed here. Good place for equestrian camping with miles of bridle trails and one loop exclusively for horsemen. Good park for boaters with 6 launching ramps and sites big enough for a camper and boat trailer.

Stayed here midweek and the campground was very empty. Lots of seasonal campers. Very friendly staff. Be sure to go to nearby farm (pick up brochure at the office) for great ice cream and to see the goats. Our site was in a large clearing with several other sites. Other sites are wooded and shady. Restrooms and showers were clean although you needed quarters for the showers. Cable TV reception had a large number of channels.

We camped at an electric site in hilltop area. Had a nice large shaded site. Many sites in this area in open field. Has good clean restrooms and shower facilities. A little far from Cooperstown, which is why we stayed here.

Date of Stay:

Hills Creek is the only state park campground in the area with showers. Very roomy sites with good privacy. Swimming and boating on the lake. Nice large and clean restrooms and shower facilities.

Date of Stay:

Small campground operated by business catering to canoes and kayak trips. Located along river. Restrooms and shower facilities are fair, but staff does try to keep them clean. Couldn't get Wi-Fi signal. Sites are small. Staff friendly and helpful.

Very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. You can order a lobster dinner delivered to the site from nearby business. We picked up ours. It was delicious. Very friendly staff. Our site was out in open in big field next to other campers, but we didn't feel crowded.

Great State Park. Very clean restrooms & Showers. Nice Playground and camp store. Boat ramp to lake in campground. Shady sites in pine trees. Some sites are difficult to access for larger RVs. Beware of swimmer's itch if swimming in lake.
