9 Parks near Cadiz, Ohio
Jul 2007 - $16.00
This campground is divided into 4 different areas. 3 of the 4 areas are permanent sites, the other area is one large field, and this is for the weekenders. No designated sites, everyone just sets up wherever they wish, muddy sites, and no one runs this place. Also, you have to pay $5 for a key to the bathroom, and they are filthy. Never stay here again!!!! - darjen

This is a very nice park that has 300 level sites and a couple of fishing lakes. Interior roads were gravel. We camped in the 5A section which was a wide open grassy field with very wide sites. This section was on a hill top and the lakes were at the bottom of the hill. If walking to lakes be prepared for a trek up hill back to your campsite. Several permanent sites and most people had golf carts to get around. Only 30 amp service available and no sewage but they do have a dump station. No reservations required. A great place to get away and relax. Very people friendly park. We will return for another visit. - cleo1948

A nice state park, but really needs to remove pit toilets (no running water or flush toilets throughout the campground - not even at the shower house). Shower house was clean, had hot water where you have to continuing press a button to use, but only semi-private due to a common changing area. The sites were mostly level asphalt pads with good spacing between - most had at least one mature tree for shade and some had several. Grounds were well cared for. Playgrounds and shower house need to be updated and modernized as you find with most state and national parks. - IBpraisingGod

Beautifully maintained state park. We had a nice back-in site, very roomy and private. Out little dog loved walking the hilly lanes and checking out the horses in the equestrian area. We loved the quiet solitude found after Labor Day. - Dareme

Was pleasantly surprised at our stay here. There are three camping loops, one is a horse camp, one loop for those with pets and the other loop is for no pets. The park has a lake and beach area, which is a little separate from the campground, but still very accessible. Campground also has an archery range, mini golf, horseshoes, and horse/snow mobile/hiking trails. Our site was fairly level, had some shade and on a summer weekend, there were some open sites. Pads were asphalt. - TheRestlessYoungs

Nice park, quiet and relaxing. Enjoyed to back to basics of camping. Pool was not open for the season, but looked like it would be fun. Many things to do in the surrounding area. Sites were easy to get into. Would recommend park to other campers. - cinnamon

Very out of the way campground. Older campground but the facilities and grounds were clean. Park sites are on grass. Very friendly people and a good site for the money. We would stay here again. - Rick Lechner

Campground is a little shabby but fine. Owner is very nice and involved. There were several seasonal units that looked old and tired. Sites are on grass - need leveling blocks. Voltage seemed low at times despite no need for AC at this time - concern that voltage may be too low to run the AC in the summer. Soft water. Bath/shower facilities are not heated but clean. Down in a valley so no cell phone service whatsoever. Only one TV station comes in strong - NBC station from Steubenville. Pool was not open yet. Small playground area. A little bit off the beaten path. There seem to be many activities in surrounding area. Good for a group as there is a rec building. Would stay here again, wish more commercial campgrounds were as decent as this one. - NancyB

We are not familiar with the area at all, being from Texas. After some investigating around we chose this park for a few nights on our way to Boston. It appears to be a destination park for lots of folks and does have quite a few residents. We weren't here on a major holiday, but judging by the weekend crowd I imagine this place gets packed. We drove into Pittsburgh two days which was fine. The park is in the middle of nowhere, but the drive is scenic. All facilities worked fine. We stayed in the Red Carpet Row Section. (back-in) Really nice patio and fire ring up against a backdrop of huge trees and creek running behind. Our GPS did not have an optimal route into the park, but the GPS on our phones did. The drive into the park isn't all that treacherous. We have a 37' motorhome pulling a Honda CRV and did fine. As far as kids activities, they have it all. We did rent a boat one day and zip around the lake. There are very few grocery options around or gas stations. Owner/Manager/staff are very nice and helpful. Great place for families and kids or travelers like us. Only downfall to me was, seems everyone started making campfires around 4:00. Some smoke lingers around. - mikel

I have never encountered a greedier campground owner.
Cons: Tiny lots - One side had a camper slide overhanging, the other had a gazebo 2' from our camper bed. No one-way loop for traffic - If your site is near the entrance you get tons of traffic from both directions. Bathhouse - Hot water costs $0.50 for five minutes. Insanity. No sign at wrong turn - GPS/Google maps/etc. send you the wrong way. The owner knows this. There is one wrong turn, which we took. We got stuck on a hill and had to be towed over it. The people that helped us out said that it happens all the time. People are constantly making that wrong turn. Entrance fee - You pay $3.75 to enter the park, THEN pay to do each individual activity. Our family paid for a pavilion for our reunion, but each attendee also had to pay to enter the park. Activities - The tube slide is advertised for age 4 and up, but the children aren't allowed to drag the tube back up the hill, flip it up the hill like a tire flip, or put it on its side and roll it up the hill. They must pick it up and carry it up the hill. What four year old can do this? Heck, what 10 yr old can do this? Also, the concession workers run the tube slide. At one point, my kids were told they were no longer allowed to slide because the worker had to go back to the concession stand. Wifi - Pretty much non-existent. Because there is no cell service at all, you're reliant on this spotty-at-best "wifi" for any sort of communication. Be prepared to walk to another area of the campground to have a strong enough signal to be able to connect.
Pros: The fire ring at the campsite was very nice. The proximity of the creek to our campsite was fun. Lots of things to do to keep kids busy if you're willing to pay extra. Multiple playgrounds (free) that are mostly newer nice ones with a few older, but still serviceable ones, mixed in.
Basically this owner will do anything and everything he can to get more money. - purpleenaj

We stayed in the keyhole full hookups section. The campground folks are great. We were there during trick or treat. There are plenty of activities for the kids. Going back for the Fourth of July this year. If I was a seasonal camper this is where we would be. - psrujak

We stayed out on the Peninsula, Section F. It worked well for our group of 6 campers. People were friendly and quiet. You can fish nearby. The beach is not close by, but you can drive or ride a bike there easily. The showers are clean and free. - breakingwind

I have stayed at Atwood several times over the last few years, always with a group in their group sites. The group sites are electric only with a pit toilet, you have to go to the main campground to use the showers and flush toilets. I found the shower houses to be very well appointed and clean, with plenty of hot water.
This is a large park with a very large campground, filled with mostly seasonal campers. Plenty to do, with a nice activities center where the is slow wifi and games, boating, fishing, hiking, a decent camp store, and a restaurant on site. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Most sites are spacious and vary between shady to full sun. - Cyclonic

The important thing to know about Atwwod park is that it is almost entirely seasonal campers. The overnight sites are poorly marked and the website does not give very accurate descriptions. Be sure to reserve online...apparently any other way does not necessarily guarantee a spot. But call to check if your unit will fit in the site you are interested in. The bathrooms NEVER had toilet paper during the weekend we spent there. Not every site has a fire ring either. Our site was nice and large and we enjoyed ourselves, but we will not go back...just to crowded and busy and the bathroom facilities were not nice. Interior roads are paved, but seasonals are parked all over the place making it a challenge to get through at times. Even though the place was packed the weekend we were there, it was fairly quiet and we didn't have any issues with trying to sleep or enjoying our campsite. - Phil from Akron

A long way off the road but a very nice park. Difficult hill going up to the campground. Wonderful heated indoor pool and hot tub. Beautiful club house, library, game rooms, pool tables. Lots and lots of amenities: tennis courts, ATV rentals, horseback riding, miniature golf, lots of things for kids to do. Large spaces, heavily wooded however I was able to get TV satellite find in section C. Dogs have to have vaccination certificates and be on leash, even though I was the only person in the park the week I was here. It rained all week and there was absolutely no one else here. Very quiet and peaceful. - NancyW

Long drive off the freeway to get to anywhere and last few miles are very hilly and narrow but OK for big rigs. Road was just repaved, so that was good. We went here for all the activities but found out that many are only available on the weekend. Nice recreation room with adult lounge and nice pools. Check in staff not knowledgeable about campground. It would seem they had never even seen it. I asked about satellite reception & they looked at the map & pointed to the trees on the perimeter & said we'd be OK. We found the entire campground is forested. OK Verizon cell & Internet connection but not great. We stayed here on our Coast to Coast membership. - Danni

This Campground was formerly known as Campers Paradise which is when I stayed here. New owners have made improvements which include adding a pool. Very friendly seasonals. - Lakewood Camper

BAD experience. We entered the park and our first thought was beautiful place. We went to register and that's when the good thoughts stopped. They informed us we would have to unload our car before going up to our "PULL-THRU" spot because we couldn't fit it around the corners even though our RV was only 34 feet long towing a mini cooper on a dolly. Something that might have been mentioned when we booked our site. They didn't have a spot to pull over and unhook the car so there we were doing it in the main thoroughfare while other cars were trying to come in. Then they escorted us up to our "PULL-THRU" and made us pull up to the far side so that a tent camper could use the back portion of the site the next day. Now the hose wouldn't reach the hook-up. We let their management know this and said that the spigot was to be shared with the tent they sent someone up with an extension hose so it could reach the back of our RV. As he hands it to us, he tells us we should probably be storing water in our tanks because often on the weekends when they have a lot of people, they run out of water (LOVELY). We looked on the internet at reviews of this place and sure enough people had complained about them running out of water. Can you imagine? We then turned on our water and the pressure was almost nonexistent. We took our dogs for a short walk and there was hardly anywhere we could walk them. Not a dog friendly place at all. We started adding up the negatives about this place and decided to leave early especially because a Volley Ball tournament was scheduled on Saturday, our departure date, and the manager said we would be hard pressed to find a spot to hook the car up again because of the traffic jams foreseen. We told them about the problems and they just shrugged their shoulders and said: "Sorry." Totally not concerned we were unhappy in the slightest and wouldn't give us our money back. - HurricanTraveler

As noted in other posts, great for the lake swimming, diving,
jumping and having fun for the kids. This was our second
visit, and we enjoy everything about this place.
I would not suggest going their in a motorhome over 40',
and you better be good at navigating very narrow passages.
For-purchase wifi was very good and reasonably priced.
Although we had a 50 amp site, any draw over 30 amps,
would drop the voltage below 105 and trip our master breaker.
We just managed our loads, and were OK. - macandphyl

The first impression I had when I drove in was wow! When you come in there is a lake full of people. They have a zip line that goes around and through the park.
When you check in someone will take you to your site and make sure your happy.
The park is immaculate. We sent pictures to our daughter, so she can bring her family here. - Lindas Old Man
