7 Parks near Bethel, Ohio

1st site (b39) terrible but staff was great in changing us to c45 which was full hookup. 1st site electric only. New sites just installed were obviously engineered by a non rv camper, big mistake on what should have been a big plus for the park. Sites length at least 20' too short for average rv and toad or pickup pulling a trailer. This makes everyone park on the grass so when park is full all you see is vehicles and RVs. So much for green space. Another faux Pau was the 4" steel pipe labeled "clean out". This required a doughnut adapter vs the threaded PVC fitting most Campgrounds use. Advised park staff of this botched job.
Nice park and mamas grill is excellent for food and wifi which we could not get at the park with Sprint service. - budwang

this was our first stay at an Ohio state park. this is a huge park. It was early in the season so the place was pretty empty. the sites are well spaced. I bet this place is great in the summer. We were here for a local geocaching event during spring break. Bathrooms and the park were clean. - TeamErnzer

This park has been fully updated in the past 2 years (previously stayed here and things were in major need of repair). The park has newer paved roads and campsite pads, new electric service (including the pole/service at each individual camp site), and showers. They recently (I'm told this past summer) added a few pieces of playground equipment, but this is still on the wish list for the park as their playground is super small for this size park. Trails could use some much needed repair and maintenance. This is a nice state park, but outside of biking and walking, you need to provide your own entertainment. They have a small putt-putt course for an additional fee near the ranger's station and a new bike trail connected to the surrounding community. Friendly and helpful staff, but there could be a little more effort put into cleaning the showers - satisfactory, just not as well cared for as I would like to see in an updated shower house. Overall, a great park now that renovations have been made. - IBpraisingGod

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 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

It's a gravel parking lot with crappy campers, no grass,. And don't be fooled, it really has no connection to the Woodland Mound park at all. Lots of rules. We were given a lecture about partying and when we told the lady that we have a three year old, those days are over, we received a lecture on quiet time. So we said we wanted to just camp and run up to the water park -- cue next lecture, on coming in and out of the park and creating a disturbance. - malik0976

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

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

We stayed here over 4th of July weekend and was a little disappointed on our campsite. It was shaded, but sites in our area were right on top of each other. Sites towards front of campground were spaced apart more as were sites located by tent camping area. However you have to be cautious on sites because a lot were uneven and smaller. We had a 21' and was tight getting into our site. It was packed of course, but was surprised to see how quiet it was. That was nice to have. As for things to do it was good. There was 2 trails to hike, but only 2.25 total. The swimming pool was nice and the smaller but nice lake had boats for rental also. There was plenty of family activities to do i.e. volleyball, miniature golf, basketball, tennis, hiking, paddle boat rental, swimming, and hiking to name some. We liked it overall and would stay again, just in a different site. - kycamper02

Very beautiful and clean pool. However, the sites are very crowded. We camped right beside the playground: MISTAKE!!! It was not too bad mid-week but on Friday night & Saturday everything was packed, bathrooms, etc., kids for days. Does not appear to be restrictions on the number of people camping at a site. We enjoyed our stay, but will not go back. - johnjoseph

If there was sewer, it would be a "10". Otherwise, it was beautiful. Quiet, large sites, priced right. - carderh

15 clean, perfectly level all-concrete sites around a small cul-de-sac. There are another 8 "overflow" sites with 30-amp electric only.
Contrary to previous reviews, there IS wifi. Read the brochure provided with the registration forms.
All utilities worked perfectly. Wifi was excellent. Campground is convenient to shopping and restaurants at Eastgate shopping complex and Mariemont neighborhood.
We stay here every year. - SusanRon

All former comments are true. We've stayed a week for $100 total. Park was full most of the time in very hot weather, thus our site #2 had electrical issues. FMCA couldn't get electrician to site due to weekend. Our power guard system shut off due to low voltage as low as 103. Other times of the year, we've never had a problem. We moved to overflow area (nearer the power source) and all was fine. Will definitely use the park again. Just be sure and check hookups for set up is complete if it's a time of high power usage. - smdrm

The FMCA Campground has 15 full-hookup sites for members to use. All sites are on paved surfaces. Maximum stay is two nights per month at no charge; maximum five additional nights at $20 per night. In addition, there are overflow sites with electric only.
The facility used to be the mail forwarding office for FMCA. The office is now closed and the Wifi is off.
We have stayed a number of times. If you are in the Cincinnati area at least once a year this alone is worth the cost of your membership.

Stayed at Stonelick for the weekend. Nice, quiet park. Sites are level and spacious. Restrooms and showers were clean, although could use some updating. Be sure to show up with you water tank full, as the sites are only electric. - Cousin Eddy

Ok where do I start. We have just started doing campground reviews because of this trip to Stone Lick. Check out was at 2pm, no rules, loud music, people screaming and dogs barking until day light . Restrooms had what looked like black mold on walls and rusty fixtures. You couldn't swim because lake had e-coli in the water from sewage dumping. Campsites were on pretty much a very steep hill; not good for tents and definitely not for campers or RVs, very few flat sites. We will never camp here again. The only reason I am giving this camp ground a 4 is they did keep grounds cut and had showers and water access. - User3172

Beautiful Ohio state park with all that one expects from Ohio. This is an older park so some sites are smaller and not very level; however, they are spaced far apart and all are easy to back into. The bathrooms and shower house are clean and well-maintained. There are some premium waterfront sites. Ohio is one state that sets aside some walk-in sites and we were very grateful. Our Verizon card ran on 3G. The phone had only one bar, but worked fine. This park takes Passport America so our price was $11.50 instead of $23. That was a steal since $23 is quite reasonable. The camp host was very pleasant and helpful even though we arrived after the office closed. Would camp here again. - fulltimervtravel

A great stay when there for a race or open practice. Way cheaper than a hotel and much safer for your riding gear. Nice and quiet when there's no racing and great for a quick getaway. Having sewer and water is a great bonus. Open areas for kids to play and the staff is super nice. Geared more to racers so there's not the normal campground stuff. - ohbuffalo
