We were very happy with this campground. It had a very park like small feel. Price was great. 15 min ride to The Arc Encounter. Owners were very nice and it was clean. It was near a highway so you cant help but to hear it. But if your looking for a clean reasonable play to stay in this area here it is. Has pool but we did not use.Free wifi. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Motorhome.

No wifi unless we walked two blocks over (we were in a pull thru), hosts were unaccommodating. Not friendly, but not rude. It appeared that we were doing them the favor by staying here. Gave us an uneven site, water/electric wrong side. No sewer at pull throughs. Showers were not working properly, you keep turning it and knob goes around and around. Hot and cold hard to distinguish. One toilet out of order in bathroom. Dump station difficult to get close to. 30 amp breaker blew with just Ac on. We thought it was overpriced for what you get. We got this type of site without a lot of things like wifi, hookups on wrong side, etc., maybe because we were here only one night? We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is our second stay at this park while my husband works in the area. The owner/staff are great and work very hard to keep the campground nice. My husband enjoyed fishing in the pond and the park is very pet friendly. We would definitely recommend/stay here again. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This appears to be a former KOA (typical a-frame office). The gentlemen in the office were very pleasant and welcoming and escorted us to our site. The pool was sparkling clean. A welcome relief on this 95 degree day. Lots of shade and a small lake where you can fish (catch & release) without a license. The noise from the interstate and trains was noticeable but not a problem for us. Internet was ok. The power was borderline but our voltage guard never kicked off. Over all, a pleasant overnight stay. We would stay again while traveling through the area. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Motorhome.

We were disappointed in this park to say the least. Every "green area" is in serious need of trimming. I don't know what has happened as some of the other reviews were pleasant but my family did not experience that on our stay. The layout of the park is bizarre as we couldn't figure out how to navigate it and for some reason the campground office person seemed frightening. We were unfortunate enough to notice him nearly drive his cart into a vehicle that seemed as if it were trying to turn-around in the campground and start yelling at them. Is this hospitality? They have warning and trespassing signs posted everywhere. It certainly gave a sense of concern as we feared what would happen to us in the park. Was there a serious crime problem in the area? The interstate noise is non-stop and loud. Everything seems worn out and in need of repair. We would not stay here again and I hope they do something about the horrible bush and tree limb over-growth problems. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice small park. Nice layout and in the woods. Well maintained.
The sad part is the noise. It is about halfway between I75 and a very busy railroad. Our site was about 300 ft. from the interstate. Makes it hard to sit outdoors and enjoy a pretty little park. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here on our trip to North Carolina and on our way back home during our summer vacation. I have used this campground in the past as it is very close to I-75 and a reasonable driving distance from my home. This is an older campground that used to have very well kept grounds with lots of flower beds/plantings and very nice landscaping. When I arrived this time most of the flower beds and plantings have been badly neglected. In general, the whole campground is in need of some care and attention (painting of buildings, removal of weeds from flower beds, etc.). On the positive side, the owners are very friendly and the sites are long enough to accommodate a 40 ft fifth wheel and truck without unhooking. While I would not want to spend a week here, it is a perfectly adequate campground for an overnight stay while en-route to a destination. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground run down. Our site was really bad - not level, door ends up to a hill, no space on passenger side for anything, picnic table on driver side, had to run water under coach to get to supply, no cable in park, could not access satellite, not all major networks accessible with air antenna. Park is 30 miles from Cincinnati. At least the WiFi was very good for mail and movies. Most of roads are gravel with some grass between sites. Would not stay here again.

We have stopped overnight several times at this park and it is very nice place for an overnight stay. The father and son who own and operate the park do their best to make sure you have a good stay. The father normally will escort you to your site and help you get "lined up" with your hook ups. Some sites are hard to get level on but all in all it is a good place to stay on your way south or back north. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We read all the prior reviews on this campground prior to booking. All the talk about the train was slightly off putting. I'm not a fan of being awakened by a train whistle at night. We stayed 4 nights at this location. All I can say is who cares about the train noise when you are within sight of I-75 that has traffic noise of all kinds Non Stop! The trains at least blow through quickly. We found the interstate to be much more irritating. I ran a white noise generator app on my phone, a box fan on full speed, and had the camper fan running nonstop at night to drown out traffic sounds. All that said, the campground is OK. I'd have liked more gravel to differentiate my site from the adjoining grass. The pool area was neatly maintained. The fishing lake is small, but what I found the most annoying with it was the stupid Canada geese droppings everywhere. We base camped out of here to do activities in Cincinnati. It was utilitarian, but definitely not some place I'd go back to on purpose. I'd use it as an overnight stop, but certainly not as a destination location. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Management was outstanding and helped get car disconnected and allowed us to use empty site next to us for car and dolly. They gave our daughter, who lives in Dry Ridge, a pass to come in to visit! Some noise from highway which is right down the hill and the trains going by across the road but did not wake us up. Stayed a week in site 60 with nice view of the lake since lower camping area by lake was still closed. They could use some electric up grades to bring voltage up a little more.

At first, we thought we had found the perfect campground - the site was easily accessible and quite large. It had everything we look for - large very level site, nice shade, large area for picnic table, firepit was far from the front door of the rig, lots of space for the dogs to stretch out. Sites are gravel, no cement patios. The list of rules includes being forbidden to put rugs or carpets down on the grass, because it "ruins" the grass. We could have lived with that, I suppose, but what you don't see - or hear - until you're parked is that there are train tracks less than 50 feet from the edge of the property. After we were set up, the first train went by... we asked the owner how often they run and received a laconic "I'm not sure... I don't even here them anymore." Which may or may not be true, but I will tell you they run every 20 minutes or so - ALL NIGHT LONG. I don't think this campground gets much business anyway, because a closer look the next day showed that most of the sites had as much grass growing through the gravel as the actual "grass" part of the sites did. I would not camp here again. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pretty park. Owner is very nice and helpful. Too bad he had to park most rigs right next to one another even though there were lots of empty spaces. Laundry room is small and cramped, but adequate. Too bad that this is so close to I-75 and the most active railroad tracks we've ever experienced. Appreciated the Escapee rate. Stayed a week, but probably will only stay here again for a night or two due to the road and train noise. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very big rig friendly. The pull-through lot was huge and we had plenty of space left over even with the tow still hooked up. No auto level needed. The staff was very friendly and nice and gave us driving directions. However, the bad news. I was very surprised that this was a Good Sam Park. I imagine back in it's day, this park was a real beauty. However, all the gardens were grown over. It just looked tired. Also, and this can't be helped, it was the noisiest campground that we have ever stayed in. It is located between a railroad track and a very busy freeway. The train didn't bother us one bit but the noise coming off the freeway prevented us from staying outside very long. This seems to be more of a one night, passing through kind of place and not the place to spend a weekend. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Motorhome.

As stated by others – there is noise from the expressway and trains, but it is not that bad. Some of sites near road leading to campground can hear the trains more than others. Overall it is an older campground, but it has a beautiful lake at the one end. It was a pleasure walking around the lake enjoying nature. It is a catch and release lake. Found the restrooms to be in good shape and clean. Other amenities were not open yet for the season. It was so neat to be sitting in the travel trailer; look out to see a deer strolling through and wild ducks in the lake. The owner was very kind and helpful. Wi-Fi was one of the best we have experienced. We will return more times in the future. We camped at Cincinnati South Campground in a Travel Trailer.
