We love this campground. It's a very family-friendly. Our favorite spots are in the back next to the creek which the kids love to play in. It's only a foot deep max. Our spots are surrounded with mature trees and are huge. You can sit in our spot around the camp fire and watch the kids play in the creek.
The only downside is they are electric and water and cable, no sewer.
This year they added a BMX bike track and laser tag and frisbee golf. There are also adding a new shower house. The current shower house is fine and well kept. It's a nice family run campground. Super great for the kids with lots of activities. It's not as big as some campgrounds but that suits us great. There's a nice place to get snacks and ice cream.
The pool is a little small but the water is always warm and nice, and there's a splash pad right next to it. There's also a zip line and a wire obstacle course.
Very secluded down in a ravine in the trees. Camping the way that it should be. It's family-owned and I think both the daughter and son are involved. Everyone who we've interacted with are good people and the staff is great. - osubuck94

Great place for a family campout. They have a zip line, playground, food window with pizza, ice cream, etc., swimming pool, shallow creek to wade in, very large laser tag area. Camp store. Very nice. Many planned weekend events. Clean laundry room.
We waded in the creek, granddaughter used the zip line, pool, play ground and climbing obstacle course. They also had minature golf but we ran out of time to use it.
We have already returned once this year and have reservations this fall for their Halloween weekend. - Atthecrossroads

We had a creek back-in site with friends camping next to us for a weekend. Grass sites are level, large, and flexible. Many activities available for children. Great camp store with good food and friendly service. Fire ring overlooking the creek along a mature tree line. The only concern during our stay was an abundance of barking dogs that weekend. - SKT

We were out a month on this trip and this was the most over priced and rudest places we stayed. How it received the 2016 Presidents award is beyond us! The lady that took our reservation could have cared less if we stayed there or not and it was like playing 20 questions. The boys on their golf carts who 'escort' you to your site need some training and some manners. Several of the cabins there are COVERED with several inches worth of green moss and the Mosquitos were horrible - the worst we've encountered. We get that it's shady and whatever - however most of this comes down to maintenance; it didn't happen overnight or over the course of a week. There was standing water everywhere - thus the infestation of mosquitos. The sites are close together and the fire rings are dangerously close to vehicles. We were charged $62 instead of the posted $48 with no explanation. We requested a pull thru and didn't plan on unhooking since we were just passing thru. Well of course that didn't happen either - it seems we were charged a premium rate for pull thru (according to the golf cart kid) but the site was backwards. To stay hooked up we would have been over halfway out in the road and would have needed miles of hoses. He then tells us that 'maybe' he can find us a pull thru but we probably wouldn't have sewer. Really!?!? So we had to go thru the extra work of unhooking and hooking up.
Cable was good and wifi didn't work at all.
We would NOT stay here again; period. We would either stay at the truck stop, a Walmart, or just about anywhere else other than here. We spent the most closest to home and was the most disappointed! - Rjjjbrown

Quiet park near Buckeye Lake. Management was great, good cable and wi-fi, level gravel pull thru site. plenty of room between sites. we would stay here again. - DBSnowbirds

Our site was level, and shaded. Fairly easy to get to from the freeway. Stayed here because it was closest to family. Price is too high for just over night stays. - OB4123

I only gave it a 9, because it is way out in the country. That was OK with us. Quiet place. Good Wi-Fi. Friendly place and the manager very helpful. Also a small place. Clear sky for the satellite. Shower has very hot water and lots of it. All grass. You can only enter (the entrance) of the campground if you are going east. Call for directions before coming. Leaving campground and going east, you will need to go out a back gate. No problems there. If coming in from the west, you will need to come in the back gate. Campground entrance is on a sharp curve and making the left hand turn is almost impossible. No traffic as it is in the country. We will camp there again, when in the area. - consmith

The park is a bit difficult to get to but is a very attractive park when you do with many large trees and lots of shade. Sites in the heavy timber have gravel pads with very little grass, due to the lack of sun but are nice on warm days. Overnight sites are pull through with easy access, gravel pads that are close to level. Nice swimming pool, very quiet and friendly. We were happy that we found this out of the way park and will go back if we travel that way again. - RV Camper1

We had reservations and arrived in the evening after the office had closed, but an escort met us at the entry gate and took us to our site. The pull through site was large enough for our 40' rig and tow vehicle, and was fairly level when we pulled in. It was mostly grass though, so we were not level by morning. The park could use an upgrade as there were a lot of sites with tall grass and weeds. Many of the seasonal sites were pretty old and not kept well while others were very nice. There is plenty of shade and mature trees. I think the park owner relies on volunteer campers to help maintain it, but there is potential here to make this an outstanding campground. It was very quiet and peaceful which is what we were looking for. The people were extremely friendly and accommodating. We don't usually come this direction, but I would stay here again if we are back in the area. - RNRVtravler

Nice modest, quiet park with pretty farm surroundings. Park Manager was very accommodating, friendly staff. - PixieStardust

Rustic Knolls is one of the nicest campgrounds that we have ever visited. The bathhouse was clean and modern with awesome water pressure. There's lots of shade, because the campground was established in 1968. It has two lakes, one for swimming, and the other for fishing. We had no trouble at all with electric or water, and our site had a nice concrete pad. The gentleman that runs the campground was very friendly and accommodating. We will definitely stay here again, in our pop-up, if we are in the area. - Nrinick

So clean, everything was in place and kept up very well. Everything from the signs to the showers to the grass was so well kept. Warm friendly staff. There was a great pond with fish and small but nice lake for swimming. A bizillion stores about 4 miles away in Mt Vernon if you forgot something. Small number of lots but highly recommended campground. - Blue Line RVer

Great park and we will definitely stay here again. Preferred access is via Pleasant Valley Rd which is paved almost all the way to Keys Rd. The unpaved section and Keys Rd are no problem. No sewer hookups for transients though some of the seasonal sites - all occupied - have sewer. Big rig sites are new with nice large concrete pads and gravel parking spots. Sites are mostly shaded and you may have trouble getting satellite from a stationary mounted dish. Should be OK with a movable dish however. There is no pool but a very nice swimming pond with dock and floating raft, sandy beach and bottom. There is also a catch and release fishing pond. Showers and bathroom are very clean though I couldn't get really warm water in the shower and they are the kind that requires you to push a button every 5 seconds to keep the water flowing. Sites are available for tenting and there are also a few new log cabins available for rent. There are some organized activities for children, a game room, basketball court and huge grassy areas for play. The park is carefully managed and meticulously maintained by the owners. Open approximately Apr 15 through Oct 15. - Buckeye44

Good entertainment there on weekends. Campsites are REALLY close together even without a slideout. A lot of people who like to party there (not always so good). Would go back but don't expect it to be quiet there. - 4Lancaster

This is a very nice park. Our site was paved and spaced far enough from the next site to give you privacy. It is well maintained, but lacks water and sewer hookups. Luckily we had filled our water tank before leaving on our trip! The person checking us in was not overly helpful. We had to ask for a map of the park so we could find our site. Overall though, we were pleased enough to stay here again on our return trip home. - Gina and Bill

This was our first visit to Dillon State Park. The spots were very nice with good space between sites. Most sites had trees for shade. The campground layout provided for privacy and a feeling that the park was never crowded. The grounds were very well maintained. We found this to be one of Ohio's nicer state parks and will definitely return again. - Tammy7

Campsites were small and close together with sparse tree coverage. The campground itself was small consisting of just several loops, however was clean and quiet. The surroundings were picturesque with plenty of room to walk and explore. We never actually made it over to see the reservoir. There was no potable water at the dump station. - hojo70

I came here for a long term stay until I bought a house. I was charged $650/mo that was suppose to include basic hook up and WiFi. During the 3 weeks here I never got WiFi, went to office and they basically said "oh well" when asked to speak with the owner they said she was not in and she would not want to hear about this she had more important things to worry about instead if I could get WiFi. Campground is run down, extremely noisy with the golf carts running all over the place and the auto traffic. There is no control over the campers there as on weekends they are up all night making noise. You are parked on top of each other and you had better know how to drive to get into your site, they won't help you. Muddy sites, very little gravel and the road coming in is a wash board. I had to turn my tv up very loud to begin to hear it. I left this campground as soon as I found another one and very pleased with this one. Oh yea when I went back to speak with the owner I was told by an elderly lady that she would be in in the morning, I explained I would be at work, the lady stated, "if you want to see her you will come in when she is here, she will not come in to see you on your schedule". I have been a full-time camper for the last 4 years and this is the worst AND I mean WORST campground I have ever stayed. Save your money go somewhere else. I don't think this place would not survive if it were not for the trailer people that live full-time on the hill. Would not recommend going up there from what I heard about what goes on up there. - Wayne Conway

We have been coming to Berkshire for about 5 years now. We just travel to stay on weekends. The kids love it. There is so many things for families to do that its a packed weekend. My parents even come up from Pa to stay. Never complain. The staff in the office are just AWESOME every single time we have been there. Never had any issues with the sites or people at all. - JLee Hdz

We planned to stay a few nights but left after one. Honestly, we would have left shortly after arrival but were too tired to look elsewhere. We were given a "pull through" site that was to accommodate our 40' coach and toad. It was 90 degrees off a narrow road and so we had to disconnect the toad in order to maneuver into it. Once there the leveling jacks punched through the thin layer of gravel and buried themselves into the soil. A small "swamp" lay across the site as well which looked to be the result of leaks in either the sewer or water system. As the site sloped too much we tried one across the road that was more level. No luck. There too the jacks went straight into the soil. Even after placing plywood under them. That folded up and went into the soil along with the jacks. Management finally brought us some 2x lumber and cement blocks which in combination solved the problem. Noise from barking dogs and speeding (yes speeding) cars and golf carts running past us until 11 pm dropped our evaluation of this place even further. At times the noise was so loud it drowned out the television (even with the windows all closed). We walked though nearly all of the park that evening and took in the sights. There were no other pedestrians. Everyone drove around on golf carts. None of the roadways are paved and the little remaining gravel is seriously pock-marked with deep pits and ruts. Made me wonder how folks would feel comfortable speeding on it but I could never answer that one. Bottom line is this park is well past its prime. Whoever owns it has got to be sucking the income and using it for other things. There is just too much "deferred maintenance" showing compared to the high number of guests (nearly all permanent homes) who must provide a positive cash flow. We will stay in a truck stop before we stay in this place again. - User422

We originally reserved for three nights and several weeks ahead of time we had to change to two nights, the refund process wasn't easy because we paid with PayPal, however it did get done. There is a gate with a code to get in and the code they gave us as we got there didn't work the next day - nothing in the paperwork said anything about stopping at the office to get the new code! That said, the site was level, they pick up your trash at your site, and the variety of activities for kids is amazing [although we didn't have kids with us]! - Tony Connie and Rusty

We decided to try this place out and are glad we did. Our site had a cement patio, nice picnic table and a fire ring with a metal grate. From the time we checked in until checkout there was something to do for each of my three kids, who range from age 7-13. I caught a huge bass and the kids caught over 30 fish in one day. The kayaks, canoes, inflatable toys were all no charge and we could use them as much as we wanted. This is by far the best campground we've been to all summer. We saw the staff constantly cleaning and it showed. The bathroom toilets and showers were clean every time we used them. They have some farm animals too. This is our new camping spot! Check out the old truck they have on display too. - Joe K

We called for a site for a 35' bumper pull trailer and were assured that they had a spot for us. When we arrived our spot was a back-in, too small for our trailer. The spaces are very tight and trees are planted near the front of some sites. Other campers' vehicles are parked along the road so you cannot cut your tires to turn. I would recommend that you only make reservations for a pull-through if you are more than 24', otherwise you will be very disappointed. - WindRiver

This place is a dump. Not maintained at all. Full-time campers have trashy sites. No kidding when I say this, FT camper was sitting outside his camper in his underwear, his wife in shorts and just a bra drinking PBR. Tried to get hold of management but they never answered the phone for 3 days. Grass had not been mowed in a couple of weeks, tree limbs everywhere, their so-called pavilion had 4 ft holes in the roof. Hard to tell where sites were because the lots were grown over by grass. When I asked about a picnic table they said go find one. Same with a fire ring. They made their web page look so great, but the place is a DUMP. Was so not worth the drive way out there. Go somewhere else, unless you like Deliverance type of a setting, just listen for the banjo music. Seriously. - Wayne Conway

We were camping with a group of 4 campers and all booked together. When we arrived they had not kept us together. The reservation does say site #s not guaranteed but they could have tried to keep us together. There was no picnic table at our site when we arrived. We were told picnic tables and fire rings are first come first serve we would have to go find one ourselves. Had to go to the rustic side and load a table into the truck to move it to our site. Site had piles of nails around where fire pits had been moved after burning wood with nails. We ended up with a nail in our tire. Nice large pool but most of it is under 3 feet deep with one small corner being 3 ft 8 inches. Nice for little kids but not for our teenagers. Extremely rude people who cut through our site continuously to get to the pool, but the way the pool and playground are situated you almost have to cut through a site to get to them. Bath house is very old. Toilet seats broken, shower that doesn't work but not marked out of order so you don't know it doesn't work until you are in it trying to use it. When mentioned to the staff that the water won't turn on were told they shut the water off to that one its broken. Some kind of party going on at one of the picnic shelters until after midnight playing loud music - quiet time definitely not enforced. The only good thing I can say about this campground is they did let us do a late checkout since we were there for a softball tournament in the area and had a game after normal checkout time. Will not return and would not recommend. - Luv To Camp

My review is exactly the same as the other review for Sept 2012 on this Campground. Another Big Rig and I stayed here for 3 weeks, and we had the best time there. The firewood was a little over priced, but the maintenance man and staff were the best. The older lady staff person, not so much. Virgin Mobil phone service was fair and good enough to tether off of. We we really enjoyed the stay and would not shop for another park in the area. I will return. - startech
