Looks like they put in the campground in an old drive in theater. There's nothing pretty or scenic here. All night long all I heard was the sounds of traffic because I was right next to the highway. It's a dump. We camped here overnight when the bathrooms were closed, out-of-order. I won't go back. - spendbigbucks

There is only 1 shower house for this large 80 acre camp layout. The shower house was very dirty and not well kept at all: it smelled like sewage the whole weekend. There is a very angry campground owner. Just check out the rules list, count the number of ! and !! and you will see the attitude you will receive. When we pulled into Hillview Acres Campground late on a Friday night, we were greeted with a smile and quick service to get us to our site. We purchased a gator load of firewood and that was going to be delivered right to our site. What a great start. We were warned to be sure to follow the posted 10 MPH speed limit. We cautiously worked our way to our campsite only to find there was no empty site where we thought ours was to be (few sites were actually marked). We wandered around in the dark trying to figure out where we were to be, a campground host drove up asking if we needed assistance and we shared our confusion. We learned then that a pop-up was situated on our site. We were told to just take the site next to it. As we proceed to do so, a camper at a neighboring site walked over and said oh, that’s our site for tomorrow night so you’ll have to take the next one. Moving down to the next site on a considerably less flat level site makes finding decent location for our tent a challenge, especially in the dark. At this point, the campground owner approaches. He has no idea why these folks are on our site but gives no insight as to how to solve the situation. We told him where we were going to place our tent and the camp owner says, “Oh no, that’s too close. You’re actually in the other site.” So here we are on our lowering elevation in a site that is 7 yards by 15 yards hoping to house a tent, a full size pickup truck, a fire ring and a table. We suggest we just set up for the night and re-evaluate come morning when we can all see what’s going on. Mr. Camp Owner snaps, “You can either take this site or take your money now and leave. If you stay, it’s a three night minimum.” We state: “We can see better in the morning.” He says, “Nope. And I loaded this wood and brought it to you. You need to take it. I have work to do!” (Remember it’s 11:00 at night). Finally, we find a place to pitch our tent (mostly on our own site). We wake up and find that our placement isn’t so bad, sleeping on relative flat, with a great view of the playground and the port-a-john. As long as the wind didn’t kick up, we shouldn’t burn our tent down. The neighbor did comment on what a nice song we sang as we tucked into bed at night. (See the proximity of our next door neighbors?) The closest flushing toilet and hot water availability is a 15 minute walk (by an adult) and the shower house is deplorable. The port-a-john was less than desirable after a long holiday weekend and no attention. At the playground, my children were faced with a ladder to the slide with a broken top rung with very rough edges and a slide that slid into the gravel covered ground. Throughout the weekend we felt like we were observed as real trouble makers. For instance, as we pulled out Saturday morning to go to the state park, we were behind another vehicle and Mr. Camp Owner was smiling and waved at them, obviously pleased to have them at his facility. As we passed, he created his power stance, feet apart, arms crossed, and watched us pull away. He then stepped into the driveway behind us and watched us leave. We watched him walkie-talkie someone and we figure he thought we were leaving. Wasn’t he probably disappointed when his camp host radioed back that we were nested for the weekend. On a positive note, we learned the work he had to do. He sat on his gator at various spots around the park with his radar gun making sure everyone was going under 10 mph so our little ones were safe. He was proud of his mission, letting us know he had purchased 4 of them. We would have suggested he use that money on updating his restroom facilities: but at least our dirty little ones were safe from speeders. - cjtoth

If you review the Camp Information and accept the lack of sewer, Wi-Fi, 50-amp, cable, etc., then you should have a very nice time here. However, it is not big-rig friendly. Several turns are very sharp and the roads have many low-hanging branches that can damage a roof or front of a rig. Otherwise, have a good time here! - hulamarc

I dropped my rating from last year: rest rooms still need work. Peeled paint, etc. Ladies room looked like a different standard of cleanliness applies here. We camped here for an event in the pavilion. As in past years, the A/C broke down. The excuse given was the town failed to pass a levy, evidently, to fund maintenance. Hey, Coshocton: people pay for services and if they breakdown, well, That's Not Fair! Where's the money going? Why isn't staff cleaning and doing simple maintenance? Why is the cover for the electrical hookup falling off of its hinges? NEGLECT. In the meantime, the money is still being collected and the rate is similar to that for other parks where the level of maintenance, etc., is much better. We'll consider a different camp next time. - TravelerRog

This is a community park with a great swim center. Great for families. Nice attraction near by: antique Roscoe Village. Golf across the road. Low rating given due to lack of full hookup and rest rooms which are in need of repair. Shower temps strongly affected by others turning on hot water and toilet flushing. We attended an event in the great dance pavilion and dry camped with A/C. - TravelerRog

Great park for familes - swim center is nice. Many locals get together for family gatherings. We camped here to attend a contra dance weekend, as did many other dancers. The park has a great old ball room which has been rennovated. Those are the "amenities." Rest rooms were tired and needed cleaning. Our electricity went off and there was no on-site host or phone to call. We had our dance coordinator call about it and he only got voice mail. They either fixed it or it magically turned back on. We also got some whiffs of sewage at our site, possibly from the nearby stream. Some sites do offer nice shade but you need to know which ones and reserve in advance. We'll return again because of the park's convenience for our annual dance get together. - TravelerRog

This campground is situated within the heart of the Ohio Amish Country. The owners were extremely helpful and very nice. The roads in are a bit tight and the sites are somewhat close to one another, but because there are only 50 or so sites, you don't notice the crowding. Each site shares a gray water drain with an adjoining site (It is a plastic barrel buried into the ground filled with gravel). These were extremely handy given there are no sewer hook-ups, only water and electric. Most of the sites have some shade or are fully shaded. One issue we had was that someone had pulled their tow vehicle into the campsite we were supposed to be in and the owner could not find them. They accommodated us with another campsite with no issue at all. This campground was very quiet in the evenings which was very nice. The camp store is very limited and not open on Sunday, and there are no organized activities at the camp. Enjoy the Ohio Amish stores! The campground provides free firewood in the form of woodshop castoffs. We wouldn't cook food over it since much of it has wood glue in it, but it is just fine for sitting around. - HP_Happy_Campers

Very nicely kept campground. Some people commented how quiet it is and that you can hear horse buggies pass. Not really correct on that note. You are very close to a State Road, very heavily traveled, however, that is not a reason to stop you from staying here.
Very well maintained. Sights are reasonable spaced, typical for a small private campground. They have nice fire rings at each site and free local wood for burning. Many shaded sites. Bathroom are very, very clean. I would highly recommend. - philman

The only reason I gave this park an overall 8, was because some of the sites were small. We have a 26 ft trailer, and it just fit on our site. However, there were bigger sites, but they were already occupied since we stayed Labor Day weekend. Very close to many Amish towns. Would stay here again. Owners very nice. - Susan Curto

We loved this State Park. Plenty to do : Gem mining for the kids, swimming, hiking, playgrounds, beach, boating, arcade, and a lot more. The RV sites were exactly what you expect out of a nice campground. Everything worked well, and we had NO issues with the park or the other campers. - Wheelingfeeling

One of the campstore staff members needs a lesson in customer service or needs to get a non-public job. Campground loops are all on a hill that sits a couple hundred feet above a large man-made lake. Woods are rugged with lots of briars, vines and poison ivy. Not many pines or hemlocks. Just typical hardwood forest. Well marked diverse trails. Huge beach. Large dog park. A lot of little private nooks. Deer everywhere. Ticks, too.
'A' loop is open at first but narrows into the trees. 'C' loop is in the trees but stays open year round by a bathroom/shower house that is open year round. 'E' loop is nice and open. 'F' and 'G' loops are very open and large. Most loops close by the end of November or early December except for 'C' loop. This park is huge with miles and miles of trails. I can hear the hwy off in a distance, but the sound is a very low din...barely hear it.
No monthly discounts, at least when I asked. - mynyel

Really mediocre park, in a really HUGE state park that requires you to drive everywhere (fishing, marina, pool, etc...) you want to go. The campground is large and the sites are well-spaced, but poorly maintained. We were at one of the few full hook-up sites, and the lid was broken off of the sewer connection, so that's open the whole time we're there. We camped on a Sunday and Monday (so there weren't many other campers), and staff decided to mow on Monday. Without regard to stirring up all the dust (it's been dry...), they keep mowing right on the sites that were occupied! Really?
I think perhaps they should have mowed less and sprayed for bugs more. On Monday night, the clouds of gnats were so pervasive throughout the park that you couldn't walk through the campground without getting absolutely covered with gnats. Huge clouds of 'em. It was awful.
Then, one evening, I ran to the camp store to get a couple little firestarters. I arrived at 4:55 (they close at 5), and met the attendant on the sidewalk who informed me that she'd already locked the door, so... I'm out of luck. She was literally 2 steps from the front door, with the keys still in her hand, and was closing 5mins early. There are only a few folks in the campground this Monday, so I'm sure she'd been busy all day and was ready to retire...
We had reservations for this park on our return trip for two nights (we thought it'd be nicer), and we forfeited the money to stay someplace else. Not really convenient to the interstate, not surrounded by things to see and do, and not a great park. - fastalker64

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

Very expensive for what you get. Our site, number 31, is so un-level as to be unusable. We would not stay here again. - SusanRon

For early spring, the entire park was beautiful. Little early for the flower gardens, but that's no big deal, the sites and yards were in excellent shape. The facilities were spotless as usual and the office/store was well stocked. Just be prepared for the slope of the sites on the 17 to 26 strip, they have a rear to front slope. They are level left to right but don't be shocked by the grade, bring a couple extra blocks and you'll be fine. - mkekflyers

Nice park, friendly staff. Well taken care of campground. Price for campsites a bit high for the lack of things to do in and around area. Sites are close. On plus side, nice 4-season pool and hot tub. - jeff7

This is our go to Amish area campground! Easy in easy out. Sites are very spacious! The rate reflects one night the longer you stay the cheaper it gets. Good Sam, but if you stay longer it's cheaper not using the discount. No kids activities and must be self contained. Sites are large. Very friendly staff. The only drawback is the intersection leaving. A blinking light st. Very busy road. - Ohioan

Stayed here touring the Ohio Amish country. Sites are wide, with well maintained gravel, and well maintained gravel roads. Very clean. Did use the WiFi and found it strong. Power and water strong. Friendly and helpful staff. No pool. We will return. - Field Trip

This is a very nice RV park in the heart of Amish Country. There are 3 sections to this park close together at different levels as this is a hilly area. The first is all gravel the other two sites have a gravel pad and a grassy area for the picnic table and fire pit. All pull-thru and back-in sites have full hookups, a picnic table and a fire pit. They even offer free fire wood, scraps of wood from the wood working factory next door. It is quiet on the weekends but when the wood working factory starts up on Monday at 6:30 AM it is a little noisy if you are in the first all gravel area. Wi-fi is available. They have restrooms and a laundry room. There is no pool or cable TV. - Michael Kibler

This campground is under new management. The office staff was very nice but still finding their way. The new name is Timbercrest Camp and RV park. Phone number is unchanged. New website is www.timbercrestrvpark.com. It would have been nice if the grass had been mowed prior to our arrival since they knew our group had reservations. - D&K
Sep 2015 - $31.00
This is a fairly well maintained campground, with friendly and helpful owners at check in.The interior roads and sites are gravel with weeds. Our pad was long and level but not overly spacious, big rig access was fair. It was very quiet at night, no privacy around our RV, but there was space for our towed. No shade trees, some grass between sites and some sites had a picnic table, ours did not. The bathrooms were old but adequate, but they did need a good clean, the so called laundry had one washer and one dryer, not enough for this size of campground, as some folk just hung their washing outside their RV's. Pet friendly but no dog walk and no doggie bags or disposal station. WiFi was worse than useless but cell was okay. There are small local food stores in Walnut Creek, as well as great restaurants and plenty of unique shops to explore. We would not stay here again, this campground is mediocre at best, it could be a great campground, but the owners need to spend time and money on it. - tobyjug

This park is in a quiet, country setting near Walnut Creek. Long straight gravel drive to park. Interior roads and site driveways are gravel. Layout works well for access with even the largest rig. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The building containing the restrooms, showers, laundry and meeting rooms appears to be very new. - eaglessoc

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

Super friendly staff. We came on a Sunday and the office was closed, but there were instructions at the office as to which spots were open. We filled out our card and went and paid Monday morning. Most are pull-through, but we picked a back-in and it was level with full hookups and a picnic table and a fire ring. Short walking trail through the woods behind the campground and a basketball and volleyball court with balls provided. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. There is no laundry facilities here. The Wi-Fi worked really well. - Tracy and beth

This is a very nice park with well laid out hookups. Most of the sites are pull throughs and close to level, even though built on a hillside. Our biggest disappointment with this campground were the gravel drives and sites, which were very, very, dusty on our visit. There is a playground, a basketball court and a volleyball court on site. - Teacher's Pet

This park doesn't look like much, but it's very nice. The sites are easy to get in to with wide roads, the sites are terraced for a nice view of the countryside. We were from the area and stayed here for a week while finishing details for full-timing. We didn't do any site seeing, but there are many things to see in the area.
No cable, but the wifi was good. Friendly, helpful staff. - schoolsout2
