Date of Stay: May, 2010
There was no one at the house to check-in: self check in. The commissary was open and very nice. No camp store that I saw. Lots were well laid out and very large. My wife, I and 18-month old son drove through and decided we'd stay here next time instead of Mohican Adventures. Only because we really like large comfortable lots and our 18-month old was not old enough to enjoy all the kids stuff and activities at Adventures. Bathrooms were simple but clean and adequate, had hot water and pressure and there were several of them around. There was sand volleyball, a basketball court, horseshoes, a simple small playground, but that's about it, and they weren't fabulous. Looking a little work down in general. But if you like large comfortable lots over amenities and activities, this is your campground. Lots along the tree line or along the river are roomy and very nice, but not quite as big as the ones toward the interior (which are enormous), but a bit more private.

My wife, 18-month old son, and I stayed here for 1 night. The site has a GREAT indoor pool although we didn't have time to swim. Let me say that I like larger lots as opposed where lots are very close together. This campground has a few nice spots with room, but a most sites are pretty close to together. There are TONS of activities for young kids. It is along a stream and there is a lake with beach, lots of playground equipment, paddle boats for the lake, canoeing across the street run by them. They sold firewood and it burned almost too well. It was $10 a bundle of rough sawn, dimensional wood as opposed to logs, and it burnt very quickly. We went through 3 bags easy in one evening. There are portable potties throughout that are decent and were pretty clean, but there is only one major shower house that is attached to the pool. Shower cubby holes were nice with shelves, room to un/dress, but a little tight. Lots of hot water and water pressure, but out of 10 shower spots I was the only one there. Lots are gravel and gravel roads a little rough with various types and sizes of stone. A little rough and detracting from the look. The check-in sites had everything you could want for your camper or camping experience. The people that work here were very nice. Since there were so many full service lots, it was ok, but there was only one dump station and it was not as nice as others, but it did the job.

As with most state parks in Ohio, the lots are pretty ample. We stayed in our hybrid travel trailer on a full service lot along a tree line but overlooking the lake. The lake has about 18B branches to it, so there are tons of nice lots. We much prefer roomy lots with maturity and character and despise parking lots of side by side campers with tiny trees. KOA's are not our favorite for lots. Shower houses were clean with hot water and pressure. Had privacy to get un/dressed. The dedicated toilet houses were closer but not quite as nice, but convenient. Not really too many activities in the campground per se, but lots to do around (boating, fishing, hiking, etc.) as its located in a nice state park. All roads and spots we saw are paved. Fire ring and nice picnic table in every spot. We'll camp here again for sure.
