This park has been a regular weekend retreat for us for nearly a decade, and the campground has had some good years and bad years, usually based on funding. Some recent improvements include renovations to most of the restrooms in loops closest to the camp office. A few more loops have been upgraded to 50 amp electric. Roads have been repaved, which was long overdue. Parking pads have also been repaved and many have also been extended to accommodate longer rigs. A paved bike and pedestrian path from nearby Williamsburg has been connected to the campground. Pets are now allowed at all sites. I have heard that there are plans to improve the campground’s beach area in the near future. On the downside, the naturalist program, which was always popular with kids, has been cancelled. Patrols by park rangers are less frequent compared to past years. While a number of water faucet / drinking fountain units in the loops have been replaced, not all of the new units are operational. The camp store is not well stocked, though a convenient store just outside the park entrance has just about anything you would want. All sites are back-in and nearly all of the sites are electric only. There are five full hookup sites grouped together near the playground in ‘C’ loop, and another four grouped together in ‘G’ loop. In my opinion, the best thing this campground has going for it is the size and versatility. With around 400 sites, unless you need full hookups, reservations are rarely needed. If you want to be out in the open so you can put out the satellite dish, or you want a site that is almost fully shaded, you can find it here. Some loops of campsites are wide open with areas that work well for large groups of people camping together. Other loops are smaller, don’t see as much use, and are more private and quiet. Some sites even have large clearings in the woods behind the parking pad and are great for large groups of tents. It’s worth taking your time to explore the campground and find a site that you feel is just right. If you live in southwest Ohio this is a nice place to get away for a weekend. It is also close enough to I-275 that it could make for a convenient overnight stop for travelers. Note that the campground entrance is off of State Route 32. A relative came out to visit once and their GPS unit sent them down State Route 125 to the park office on the opposite side of the lake. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Five spaces in the park have full hook ups. We had one of those spaces. The rate reflects Passport America. We had to contend with a LOT of mud because of Hurricane Isaac. Could have used a little wider pads. We camped here in a Motorhome.

The campground was grassy with scattered trees and spacious sites. A few sites had meaningful shade. Roads and sites were paved but the site pads were extremely narrow. Restrooms could have been cleaner and they needed serious maintenance. They had minimal heat and shower water was lukewarm at best. 50 amp was available at my site, but there are no sites with water or sewer. Entry road was paved but rough and needed to be resurfaced. Rate is for 7 day stay using Passport America. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
