FMCA members only. Be aware park is now RESERVATION ONLY, no longer first come first served. You must make reservations by accessing FMCA webpage and choosing campground option and then option for reservation page. You check in and out using this method also. No one at campground to explain or help with new confusing process. Completely full and some people turned away. FMCA recently admitted all RV's, not just motorhomes, to membership so more demand. Water pressure low. Progressive Unit detected low voltage several times and shut down electricity. (Hot and high demand however) Full hook up area and electricity only area. No facilities. Restaurants, shopping, golf, biking and walking trails nearby. - cincychic

We stopped here to dump and check out the park. Very very clean, easy to find using the written directions on FMCA page, level sites, lovely landscaping. Excellent overnight stop, or a long weekend. No facilities for children, but if you need a stop in Cincinnati, this is the best of the choices. 4 miles east on US 32, there is a huge shopping complex, Try either Skyline or Gold Star Chili. There is also Holman Buick/RV in that area, excellent RV service area, and Colerain RV is across town as well. Don't miss Jungle Jim's Grocery store in the Eastgate shopping area... it's one of a kind! - DebbieT in Alabama

The rate quoted above is the monthly rate of $550 divided by the 30 days we stayed. We made reservations here to spend time in the area with family. The managers are very nice and accommodating and we communicated with them several times before arrival. The park itself is not very nice at all. It's mostly old mobile homes and some semi-permanent RVs (ranging from 25-year-old trailers with junk around to a half-million dollar tag axle diesel pusher). We were originally assigned to one site, but "... someone moved in to that site" before we arrived. I can only assume that it was preferable to the site where we ended up (anything would be, though). We are full-timers and I'm pretty good at backing our 36' fifth wheel with a crew cab, long bed, dual rear wheel truck into tight spaces - but this is the tightest space I've ever had to deal with. With the trailer on one side of us having a slide extended a two feet over our pad to a work van parked at the very edge of our extremely narrow space on the other, I had to rock back and forth in the narrow roadway and put the truck and trailer at almost a 90 degree able to get in... but we got it done. The tiny spaces and dumpy environment aren't the things we dislike the most, though. Directly across the fence behind us (the back of the rig is 4 - 5 feet from the fence - not counting the bike rack) is a furniture factory. The noise pollution is TERRIBLE! The low frequency droning noises I can handle, but the high frequency constant squeal and a very noisy compressor that cycles about every minute has caused me to get out my earplugs to sleep at night. We didn't see much of the other park residents, but those we did see were very nice. There aren't many RVing options in the Cincinnati area. The county parks are seasonal, have stay limitations and and have poor availability. To get something else, one has to go 45 minutes out of town and pay $40/night. - Second Chance

The rate reflects weekly rate divided by 7. This is a long-term park and not really meant for a weekend outing. That being said, when one wants to visit the area for 3 or more nights, the weekly cost of $135/week becomes equal or better than 3 nights at a normal commercial campground at $45/night. We were greeted by the park host on a golf cart as soon as we pulled in. He escorted us to our site, helped me move the picnic table, and then gave me advice on getting into the site. The sites are state park-ish. Electric and water hookup. Some sites are more spacious and typically have long-term residents on them. Riverside sites are all taken, so don't expect one of those for a weekend. There are some really long term units there, but they are are few. No shady characters. Most campers are full timers up north for the summer. There is a dump station near the exit of the park. There is a picnic table and a fire ring at each site. Downtown Cincinnati is about a 15 minute drive from the park. - WineStream

We rented a space for the month for $410. The driveway is gravel, the camp site is grass/mud, and you are required to mow your own grass. There is no bathhouse or sewer. The sites on the side that we stayed apparently have a known electrical problem, especially when the camp is busy. We were never told this and we could only run the refrigerator. Our son is disabled and we need full electrical services at all times because he is ventilator dependent and you aren't allowed to run a generator during quiet hours. We had leave our RV and come home during the holiday weekend due to insufficient electricity services. The grounds are very wet due to rain and lack of gravel or paved sites. If you are traveling with an elderly or disabled individual I would not recommend this camping experience. The parks employees are not honest about what sites have adequate hookups. Another couple was moved an hour before we were told our electricity would be an issue for the entire weekend despite prepaying for the month. Only rents by the week or month and no chance of being directly on the river. Those sites have been reserved for years. So what small amount of time we actually were there we spent looking at the back of 5th wheels. People also park in your designated campsite and that seems to be allowed. - charliepom

We spent five days on a full hookup 50 amp site with a concrete patio. The site had ample room for our 35' and tow. The utilities were convenient and there was a reasonable amount of space between sites. This section of the park looks newer as there were only small trees at the site. Trees line the back of the sites though permitting evening shade. The center road offers concrete pull thrus. We paid $41 for an hour pontoon boat rental and rode around the lake. It was VERY convenient to all things Cincinnati as it was 3 miles S of I275 inside the loop. For a park inside a huge city, this park felt like you were in the country. One complaint: There is an older 30 amp section too. We moved to this area during the weekend. The sites were closer and we had a rude neighbor that had eight cars spend the weekend. Half of these visitors parked on our site.Next time I will tell the VIP about excessive neighbors who don't respect other peoples space. - Tammy7

Nice clean large lots. Our lot was very near the lake and we had a good view. Walking trails were convenient and clean. - locatjl

This campground offers a full range of campsite choices. The front area consists of pull-through and back in sites, is newer and has full hook=ups and clean, level concrete pads and patio areas. The area has a few trees but is mostly open and sunny. Remainder of the sites are gravel and grass and appear to be mostly spacious and level, some with with views of the water. Most, if not all, have electric only and plenty shade. A single dump station is at the entrance gate. There are great walking / biking trails throughout the park and campsite areas. Overall, a quiet, lovely setting, considering it is within a congested area. Upon arrival, we were in site 14F, a very nice concrete back-in site. We developed a mechanical problem which required us to have to extend our stay for a few days. Although the park was full, the staff worked to find a suitable electric only site (#3). Initial nightly rate was $70 for site 14F, but the fee dropped to $35 when we moved to site #3. Ohio residents, which we are not, get a huge discount. - Revvie

We generally shy away from municipal campgrounds (too tight, inadequate hookups) but this place is a gem. It is part of a very large county park with lots to do and costs $5 a day to come in and out with your car (or $14 for the season). But the campground is excellent, wide, concrete sites, lots of green in between, and full hookups. WIFI is strong, and good satellite reception in our pull through section. Easy to find, well off noisy highways, friendly staff. And close to downtown Cincinnati and all the attractions. We will come back. - alanez

Absolutely beautiful setting for this large recreational park on the lake. It depends on what you are going there for (fishing, riding, camping) but our experience as a CAMPER was not our favorite. Rolling hills make it very difficult to find a spot on level ground; even many tents looked tilted on the slope. A majority of the narrow paved pads are sloped and are placed at challenging-to-access angles. The (only) "bathhouse" is located up on the hill, and was a good 4-5 minute walk from our campsite, and we were at one of the closest "improved" sites. Most people drove their cars to get there. Relatively clean, but only tolerable, as far as facilities are concerned: 3 toilets, 2 sinks, and one large ugly shower with a broken handicapped seat and water that drained poorly on an uneven floor. AJ Jolly is a beautiful place, but for camping itself, it was not much more than adequate. - LooziAnna

Stayed in the equestrian campground due to size of camper (35 ft.) but did not have horse. Large level gravel space with water and electric. Lake was short distance from site so easy access with kayaks. Road bikes around park without any issues. Very peaceful and quiet setting. Fishing, golf course and wonderful environmental education center on site. Local winery very short distance away. - NKyCampers
May 2014 - $20.00
This was our first trip in our RV. This park is very poor. The park is not clean, They have 26 "Improved electric" sites available. The sites are very small - almost too small for a pop-up camper. They are basically small uneven pads on a hill close to the lake. Would be good for a tent but not for any type of camper. The park is gate controlled and if you have visitors they must pay for the vehicle to be on the grounds. There was a boat race on the lake the weekend that we camped. It was very loud and could be dangerous. I made reservations but was not notified of this high speed boat race. The boats started very early and went on into the evening. Park was staffed with what appeared to be high school kids that did not care. - depguy

Miami Whitewater Forest Campground is located in the largest park in the county park system. The campground is clean and the new shower/restroom facility was also clean. The park is great and there are plenty of things to do outside the campground. While there, the campground was completely full. I camped in a tent, but agree that the campground is not the best for large campers and motor homes. The spaces are small and packed close together and many are hilly. My main complaint was what was already stated in a previous review. The campsites were all overloaded. 2-4 campers or tents per site with large groups staying in them in addition to having "visitors" come by in the evening. Both Friday and Saturday night, the campground did not quiet down until after 1 am. Saturday I walked by one site that had at least 30 chairs with adults in them and a hoard of children as well. Bright lights, loud music and loud conversation. Not peaceful, not quiet. - Willajean112

Getting to this park requires good advanced mapping and intuition; there could be more directional signage. This park is not suitable for long 5th wheels and motor homes. The park map does not show the steep grades and very tight curves with large trees close to the narrow one-way road. Very few sites are level. Bring plenty of blocks. It was very difficult to back into my site due to the trees and the location of the electric post. Plan to drive your rig to the water station to tank up before backing in and setting up. Heavily wooded. Only electric hook-up. Camping is a long way from the rest of the park which has no place for swimming. The bath house is new, very clean and free. - Osita5

The campground is in a nice park facility with a great play area for the kids located down by the lake. It is not real close to the campground though.
We also had to purchase an annual county park pass to be able to get in ($10.00).
The reason for the average rating is very few of the sites are level. Many of them are slanting downhill so it is hard to get level.
They could use a little better signage directing those who do not live here to the campground and check in. We drove past it the first time and had to call to find out where to go.
Also, even though they have a maximum camper limit of 6 people and two tents (or one camper unit and one tent) per site there were several that had many more than that, one having at least 18 people in it and one with 4 tents.
Their dump station is also located on a hill making it hard to get completely empty.
It is a very busy park on the weekends with lots of tent campers - 3 to 6 tents per site.
I would recommend this campground in certain areas only and during the week if possible. - prstlkid

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 4 nights in a site for big rigs. If you plan to visit Cincinnati during winter there really isn't any place closer than Indian Springs Campground. If you're looking for the convenience of staying close to the city, then this is your place. The sites here are roomy with a grassy area between each. Our site was right across from the office (in the center). We had a level gravel site that was long enough for our Coach and TOAD. The office gal was super nice and friendly. Almost of the park is filled with long term tenants, they were quiet and clean. There is a highway right next to the park but at night the traffic wasn't an issue. Our satellite worked great here. If you're looking for a quiet and clean park where you can sit outside and relax... go here. We enjoyed our stay, and would go back. - JDC10

I had a lovely site, backed-up to the little lake. There are ducks and fish. Paddleboats and canoes are available. There is a little hiking trail around the lake. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The lever at the water connection to turn the water on broke, and it was fixed within 2 hours. There is an old houseboat and motorhome parked nearby. Maintenance is done daily, trash, landscaping, etc. The park is close to a large grocery store, and about 35-45 minutes from Cincinnati. Sites seem level. Some traffic noise from the nearby freeway. I am coming back next year. - Pazahora

Used address on website and ended up on windy roads to the admin office. After we finally arrived at campground on tiny little roads we discovered it is right off a state highway 32. Close to shopping and restaurants. Large campground with lots of things to do. Paved roads to ride bikes. Adequately Clean bathroom/shower. Lots of trees and shade. Our site was easy to back in and had a level asphalt pad. Not many full hook up sites. Campground map is NOT to scale. - Jan Orlando

The site map is misleading so when you reserve in advance, you will not know how close or distant you are from the next site or other features. We were just above another site, so we suffered from their constant campfire smoke which went straight into our AC. Their firepit was actually closer to us than to them. (Not their fault). We were able to move to another site the next day. - Sue S

Very busy campground on the weekend. There are 416 sites and of that 23 are full hookup. Site was clean and level. All sites are back in. Shower/restrooms are clean however very old with peeling paint. Being a very nice sunny warm weekend the campground was full of families with happy children all out and having a great time. Our loop C was quiet. No wifi but good cell service. We did not get any OTA TV but only have a small antenna. Our site was shady and sites in our loop were a nice distance apart. We believe the sites are only about 35 feet long so many had to park their tow vehicle on the grass beside their site. - Trainspotter

Online reviews of this park were really good, so I was glad she could fit us in for the weekend. When we arrived we had to pull up to the office to register and there is really no parking lot. Our site was behind us on the narrow road so we had to take their turnaround circle which is a little tight for a 42 ft fifth wheel. When we got to the site we found for that price we had no sewer hookups so if we wanted to dump we would have to go through the turnaround again! Music was going late into the night Saturday, til about midnight. Sites were tight, very close together, so close that when someone pulled in next to us it killed our dish TV. No room to swing a big rig when park is full, which it was both nights we were there. We were thinking we were going to have to try to back out, but found out our neighbors on both sides are also pulling out tomorrow. Also the site was just long enough for our RV and we had to park our truck on a lot about 150 feet away. They had cable but only 9 channels, most local so we weren't at all interested. People were very nice and considerate and the great thing is the Ark Encounter is only 19 miles away! Many full timers back in the park but they save the front for those of us who come and go. This place is surrounded by woods and many sites back up to the creek so that's nice. - overogal

This park has a lot of full time RVers. But with that being said, they have a transient section with only 19 sites, of those 15 are W/E/50 amp and 4 are W/E/30 amp, and all 19 do not have sewer. With that few sites, you have to make reservation early. I made reservation on April 7th, for a site on May 30th, and all the 50 amp were reserved by the end of March. I did manage to get a 30 amp site and was really happy. All the sites that they have are all back-in. This park is clean and friendly. It is 17 miles from the Ark Encounter. They are opened all year round. We have a 45' coach and were able to maneuver the campground road and back in our site. We would use this park again, if we pass through this area. Just make reservation EARLY. The showers were clean with 4 stalls. The showers have tile floor and 3/4 the way up the wall. - Honeybear & Sugarbear

Unfriendly service! When you check in they take your money & then give you a map and you are on your own to find your site and manage to get backed in. The sites are mostly short and narrow back ins. The sites are narrow that we had to step out into the mud after a rain. Had to pull the truck & trailer out of the site to even get into it without walking through mud. 50 amp service was good. Poor cable & no WiFi service. Site was not mowed and was unkept. Long term renters are located in the back of park. Short term are crowded together in the front of the park. Thankful it was only for 1 night. - Texan58

Stayed at Big Bone Lick as a base camp to attend the Quaker State 400 in nearby Sparta, KY. The girls stayed back at the park and enjoyed the clean swimming pool. Site 11 was level but did require 75 foot of water hose to reach the spigot. Bathrooms were clean and showers as well. This park is at least 10 miles from any gas, restaurants or shopping so bring what you need. - kbot

Decent state camping park. Sites are not very level. You will need at least two or possibly three water hoses here. Showers dated but acceptable. Small store sells ice and other items. Mini golf is also available as well as a swimming pool. Very nice setting. - sjwake
