Rate reflects Passport America. This is closest decent campground to Wheeling, WV. We were visiting friends and found this convenient. Many OH State Parks accept PPA and campgrounds are usually good. This one has some problems, starting with undermanned entrance gate where you are directed to the camp store to check-in, then have to drive a huge loop to turn around. As noted, only ONE shower house, so plan on driving there, and pit toilets (clean, but still pit) per camp loop. Some sites were level, but it can be a stretch; pick your site carefully. The campground is quiet, spacious, and relaxing. If you are into "real" camping (and we saw a number of tenters), this is a great place. But the negatives were significant: No easy potable water source; you needed a double length of hose to hook to a drinking fountain, and were blocking traffic while filling. No decent toilets and the pit toilets were minimal. No Wi-Fi or cable (though over the air TV was adequate.) If, if Ohio spends a little money (which they don't have) on improvements, it could easily move to an 8. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for a night while passing through, and it served well enough for that purpose. There is nothing particularly special about this campground, but the roads and sites are paved and for the most part quite level. The big negative was the restroom facilities. There is only one shower building for the entire campground, and it is in the non-pet loop, so if you're traveling with your pet you are going to have a long walk to take a shower. There are no modern restrooms at all. The vault toilets scattered about the loops are of a rather odd design, with open space at both the top and bottom which allows the wind to freely blow through the stall. Not fun when it's 40 degrees out. Also note that this is a no-alcohol campground, but if you're discreet and act like an adult that should not be a problem. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed here overnight as a rest stop. As such, it was a nice park with large, well maintained sites that are difficult to back in to. As usual with Ohio State Parks, there was only Electric available. You have to fill your tanks before parking. We've stayed at many and expected this. I didn't use the pit toilet but my (adventurous) wife did and said "for what it is, it's pretty clean". Our pampered kids disagreed. The camp store was well appointed and the staff, including the park ranger, were very personable and engaging. For what we needed, it was good; the park is beautiful, convenient to I70 (with little highway noise) and we will stay here again if they get indoor plumbing. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
