Tight road leading into campground. Mostly full-time and seasonals. There was a section with 5 pull-thru for overnighters. Had to do a U-turn which was quite interesting! Got in late and had instructions on door where hose was to put water in our tank - lines frozen at sites. Also envelopes to put payment in. Okay for overnight. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground was an easy overnight spot near the highway. A little bit of truck traffic from the road. A lot of seasonal people but the front area seemed to be for the overnighters. Good WiFi and decent TV stations. We would stay here again. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Small tight campground that is good for an overnight stay. Owners are friendly and helpful. No sewer connections and the transient pull through sites are just barely long enough for a big rig. We would stay here again for an overnight stop only. Rate shown reflects Good Sam discount. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our 2nd stay. Older park with many full time "residents". We were on our way South and it was good enough for a night that we stayed when going North (home). Would stay again. Good Wi-Fi connection (4 of 5 bars). Level lot, friendly office staff. "Store" selection a little sparse. Would not plan for a multi-night stay but fine for a quick overnight. Easy off-on I-75 We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Shady campground except for the transient pull-thru sites which are level and sunny. Pool was closed when we visited in mid-Oct. Roads are mostly paved and the transient sites are grassy with gravel parking area. Campground has mostly long term residents and is open all year. Good spot to stop over night as it is near the Interstate. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Packed in like sardines! Rate reflects a Good Sam discount. This campground is full of older, "unloved" campers and motorhomes. The back-in site we had was not very level. Electric (30-Amp) was adequate. Since we were here just over night, we didn't bother to hook up to water. As per previous reviews, call ahead to reserve a site as there are very few sites available for over nighters. The free Wi-Fi worked well, and cable was 10 channels which was more than adequate for us. While clean, the showers and restrooms need some attention as they just looked a bit dingy. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Oak Creek Campground (OCC) is just a half-mile from the Flying-J truckstop off I-71 and was a good location for day trips into the Cincinnati area. It is family owned/run with a small store that sells RV supplies, groceries, ice, etc. There's a small pool and playground, and was very child and dog friendly. While OCC is a large campground with a lot of RV sites and about 6 different site-loops all around the grounds, the majority are rented to seasonal, long-term residents with wood decks, cement patios, storage sheds, etc. on their sites. Only the front RV loop appeared to have sites for short-term RV travelers like us, with only about a half-dozen pull throughs for big rigs in the center. Also, after you register at their office, the turn-around to get back to the front RV sites was very tight requiring bigger rigs to backup, so you may want to unhook your tow-vehicle while you register. Their sites are fairly close together. Our gravel site #13 was fairly level and backed up to a small creek. There were shade trees behind us and also a local road ran above the campground so you could hear traffic noise during the day. While we didn't need to use it, they advertised on-site sewer pump outs for free, likely due to the large number of permanent/unmovable mobilehomes. OCC's WIFI worked well, and there were about a dozen channels available on antenna TV. There was a laundry. The tiled showers and restrooms, while well-used by the residents, were clean enough (you'd want to wear your flipflops in the shower) with a good supply of hot water We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects military discount. Ok RV park. Not much available off I-71 between Louisville, KY and Cincinnati, OH. It's relatively easy to find, but suggest you call ahead for a reservation. Only has 5 pull through sites that accommodate large rigs, and they were full by 6PM. Once inside park, turns are very tight and roadways are narrow. Many of the RVs appear to have been there a while with "decks and sheds". Although "pet friendly", not a lot of places to walk your pet for potty breaks. Water and electricity were relatively easy to get to, electrical connection was OK. Good if you are just passing through, but wouldn't want to stay a while. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Would not overly recommend this park. Access is a little tricky and negotiating the park requires attention as the drop-off in some places could cause a problem. There are limited pull-through sites and they were reluctant to allocate one to us with a fifth-wheel. They said "we like to save them for people towing a vehicle" - but they did give us one in the end. The pull trough sites are fairly close together, but O.K. for an overnight stop. Wi-Fi was excellent but the cable TV was poor - few channels and most were "snowy". Will try somewhere else next time. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy to find off I-75. Rather tight turn into campground and when you come out of the park the view to your right is very compromised. The manager was very nice and friendly. Cable TV great, Wi-Fi great. Water was turned off for the season, but I was told this when I called a week earlier so was not surprised when I got there. We were visiting an Aquarium in Newport so we stayed for 2 nights. It is a 30 minute drive to Cincinnati. Great park and friendly folks. Rate reflects Good Sam. We will stay here again if in the area. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

This is one of our "old standby" campgrounds on our annual run south. It is an easy-in and easy-out campground that provides well-spaced pull-through sites for motorhomes and fifth-wheels at the front of the park that are separate from the resident and long-term sections. The staff is very accommodating and even gave us the site number ahead of time, thereby allowing us to park before registering. Rate reflects time of year and that water was shut-off at the sites; something we did not need anyway. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Maybe we were just unlucky with our stay here. Dogs everywhere and some of them barked all day! The park is a pretty spot as you drive in - the permanent and seasonal vans did leave something to be desired but are situated away from the short stay area. Lovely play ground for children. Take care with the sharp turn into the park off the Interstate and care needs to be taken in leaving the park with fast traffic coming around a bend on the right.

We have camped here before and swore we'd never come back, but it's February and we needed a campsite. We called and made reservations and there was no mention of the fact that there is NO water in the campground, and NO water at the dump station. We found out when we tried to hook up the water. Water was shut off due to winter. No adjustment on the price, either. Our motorhome is 35' and we tow a small car. The pull through was barely long enough to accommodate us and the site was low enough in the front that we had to put boards under the front wheels of our motorhome. So far, Wi-Fi is working. Cable is bare-bones. Turns are very tight and it would be difficult for longer RVs to maneuver in this campground. We wouldn't camp here again unless we were forced to.

Not 'big-rig' friendly since turns on roads to the campground and in campground are very sharp and winding. Old campground, rather poorly maintained with what appears to be 90% long-term residents. Cable TV did not work and management said the system was being replaced. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

For an overnight stay it is OK. Would not want to stay too long. Be careful getting in the campground as the turn in is pretty sharp. We have a 36' fiver and were able to get in, but you must move cautiously. Sites were pretty level. We camped at Oak Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
