10 RV Parks near Harrison, Ohio

Getting to this park requires good advanced mapping and intuition; there could be more directional signage. This park is not suitable for long 5th wheels and motor homes. The park map does not show the steep grades and very tight curves with large trees close to the narrow one-way road. Very few sites are level. Bring plenty of blocks. It was very difficult to back into my site due to the trees and the location of the electric post. Plan to drive your rig to the water station to tank up before backing in and setting up. Heavily wooded. Only electric hook-up. Camping is a long way from the rest of the park which has no place for swimming. The bath house is new, very clean and free. - Osita5

The campground is in a nice park facility with a great play area for the kids located down by the lake. It is not real close to the campground though.
We also had to purchase an annual county park pass to be able to get in ($10.00).
The reason for the average rating is very few of the sites are level. Many of them are slanting downhill so it is hard to get level.
They could use a little better signage directing those who do not live here to the campground and check in. We drove past it the first time and had to call to find out where to go.
Also, even though they have a maximum camper limit of 6 people and two tents (or one camper unit and one tent) per site there were several that had many more than that, one having at least 18 people in it and one with 4 tents.
Their dump station is also located on a hill making it hard to get completely empty.
It is a very busy park on the weekends with lots of tent campers - 3 to 6 tents per site.
I would recommend this campground in certain areas only and during the week if possible. - prstlkid

This campground is very close to my home, so we camp here pretty regularly. The upper sites are rather hilly, and most of the lower sites are mostly level. There are a few towards the bottom that have a bad slope, though. There is a playground located in the bottom section, as well. The park offers a lot of attractions (a snack bar, water park for little kids, paved bike trails, disc golf, fishing, hiking trails) and the campground features decent sized sites with plenty of shade. The bathrooms and showers have always been clean when we have camped, and the campground is monitored regularly by park rangers who are friendly and not overbearing. We have a pop-up so without a toilet, so we do not have the problem with the dump station that I keep reading about. Overall, if you are looking for a quiet campground with a lot of activities within the park, I would definitely recommend this park. - McLovin Camper

The campground is larger than it appears. We wanted a pull thru, so we didn't stay next to the lake. It was all gravel in our area with no shade trees. There appeared to be some long-term residents. The park is well maintained. There are several odd-looking ducks that roam the campground - they are fearless but friendly, and they don't seem to leave a lot of droppings around. They have limited office hours, and no one is there in the evenings. The office staff were very helpful in person and on the phone. They don't have online reservations, which I found irritating because I prefer to do everything electronically - we sent a deposit check through the US mail to hold the reservation. There are no organized kids activities, though there were paddle boats along the water that you can use. It was close to Cincinnati, which is why we chose it. I wouldn't consider this a destination campground, though if we'd chosen a back-in site along the water I might feel differently. - Morning Star

Our 2nd stay here and not as pleasant as the first. I was quoted a rate on the phone that included a Good Sam discount so I made a reservation for the next day. When we arrived late afternoon the next day, they charged the full rate and didn't give me the discount even after I showed them my GS card! They advertise and tell you on the phone that they give the discount so I'm following up with GS about that. It was too late for us to find another overnight stop so I paid the full rate. I think that's what they're counting on if you get there late. As a self described mom and pop operation, they appear to make the rules on the fly. Some people get the 10% Good Sam discount, and others like us don't, and I don't know what criteria they used to determine that. We won't be stopping here again. - Flippitti

Small campground, sites are long but close together just off interstate. Clean, appeared well kept but mostly gravel and rock. Driveways are narrow. Nice overnight stay. There was a 'glitch' when checking in which double charged me for the stay. Owners took prompt action and refunded money via check with a few days. - FOSJ

Generally very clean, but our fire pit was completely full of ashes when we arrived, and no one ever came to clean it out. The people in the site next to us pulled in front first instead of backing in, so their windshield was facing our drivers side windows. So, no privacy. A porta potty was right across from us. On our third afternoon, our 30 amp electric kept cutting off, even though we weren't using anything except one AC and fridge. It was a very warm day, so this made our last night most uncomfortable. They said there was nothing they could do because they couldn't get an electrician until the next day. Since this is a County owned, very large park, that's really unacceptable. I feel certain the county employs many electricians. Water pressure was not too good either. Took almost 1 hour to fill our freshwater tank. They only have a few sites with full hookups and the rest are 30 amp only, with no water or sewer. Definitely not worth what they charge for 30 amp service and nothing else. It's in a sketchy area, but it is gated. The price includes a $14.00 annual entry fee you are forced to pay. Not sure I would come back. - CEB002

This is our second trip since 2015. There is now a splash area for kids. The sites are clean and level. The utilities work great. There is a concrete patio. There is not much shade on full hookups. The 2 mi walking path is always busy and boat rentals are available. We visited downtown CincIncinnati, Ark Encounter, ikea, the basilica in Covington, and Houdini's Escape from the campground. All was within 45 minutes but the road construction near Cincinnati is horrible. It's a nice place to stay to visit all things southern Ohio/Northern Kentucky and we will be back again. Nice place! - Tammy7

Lots of gravel tent camping areas with electric only. Some gravel with FHU. Some concrete FHU. Generally a very goood quiet camp with spacoius lots. Since we were on electric only, we had to fill fresh water tank often, our site 42 was far from shower house. Water fill stations were very few and hard to access. However, will stay here again. - Sir_Charles395

We stayed on the Thousand Trails side. We had made our reservations about 3 weeks in advance, reserving a full hook-up, 50 amp service pull-thru. When we checked in, we were given a map, and told find a site that we liked. The employee told us that here are the 3 phases, and she circled them on the map. Phase 2 and 4 had pull-thrus, but she didn't know what sites were available, what sites had full hook-ups, what sites had 50 amp, and what sites were just water and electric. She did know that phase three was just water and electric. We drive around, ran into some low hanging branches in phase 3, where another employee directed us to phase 5, which also was a mix of full hook-ups, some with 30 amp, some with 50 amp, and some with just water and electric. After a third employee stopped us and helped us, we were able to find a site. We ended up in phase 2, where our site was mostly grass, and not level. We were able to level the coach by placing pads under the rear wheels. The water and sewer were in the driver side and the electric was on the passenger side, so we had to run the electric under the coach. Then it rained for a couple of days and the fire pit and sewer connection were under water. Our thoughts are, if you are going to take reservations and charge $52 per night, you should at least be able to tell people what site that they reserved, instead of telling them you need to go find your site. - Bbtj

We have stayed in many RV parks, but this is, by far, in the top 5 worst. Yes, it's huge, but only 2 sections really count for Thousand Trails and "phase 2" which is where you're sent, is VERY unlevel gravel sites; the hookups are very confusing, (not sure which hook up goes to which site and many have to be shared part sewer part not (and the maps numbers don't jive with the posts so you don't know) and today they turned our water off for part of the day, with no notice, because they were doing some work elsewhere. The pool was not swimmable (unless you like to swim in 60 degree water) and much of the rest of the park is like broken down single wide mobile homes. There is another couple areas - one huge area for KOA (only one RV in there) and "phase 4" which looked ok, but we're full of what looked like permanent sites. Couldn't believe this is a Thousand Trails park. You had to check in at the store and they give you a paper scan card for the gate...that is car level. You best hope you don't come in your class "a" by yourself because you won't reach. - JoWood

We stayed in the Thousand Trails part of this campground. Grounds seemed nicely maintained as well as the campground buildings. We did not use the pool. The pull throughs in Phase 2 - area P (where we stayed) are in need of maintenance. Our site was mostly grass growing with some gravel and dirt areas. Water lines look to have a temporary fix using washing machine hoses. Good water pressure (60 lbs). Our site was fairly level. Grass had been mowed recently. Sign at entrance telling TT members to go to the main gate to check in. There are two check in areas. Both located in the Campground store. One for TT and one for KOA.
At the main gate there is an intercom you need to use if no one is there. A little difficult to understand. Had to use the intercom and was told to go back to the store/gas station to register. Registration personal were helpful and friendly. We were able to get 50 amp service with FHUs. A nice plus for me is the campground allows washing your RV and vehicle. But you must purchase a $5 'washing permit'. - Rufas

The park itself is nice and so is Brookville reservoir. The campsites is where the park is lacking. Tent sites should be separate from other sites. It just makes sense because of what people are looking for when they rent a site. People were running through all sites with no respect for others. Parents should teach their children better. Dogs were left at sites unattended while owners were visiting elsewhere. Yes they were BARKING. This was a nightmare. I was really disappointed. Never to return. - Joe Mallory

We stayed for two nights. Not one time did we see a DNR staff member drive through our loop. The people in the next site, left their dog tied up outside, by itself, while they visited people in a different loop. The dog barked the whole time they were gone(3 1/2 hours). There were people setting off fireworks, after dark. This is a great park, if you like to party and be loud most of the night! - No return

What a nice state park. We stayed in the C loop which is full hookup. Sites are fairly deep and wide. Paved pad was at an angle to the road so it was very easy to back into. The electric only sites were mostly empty but also have paved parking pads.
Showers and restrooms were clean and abundant. Utilities at the site worked well (the water pressure was a bit low at 25psi).
We had very good AT&T 4G LTE coverage and OTA TV from Dayton and Cincinnati was good.
We stayed here while visiting our son at Miami University which is just a bit over 20 minutes from here. - 4forsmores

This park has two sections; we stayed in the lower section along the Ohio River. This used to be our very favorite RV park, but this most recent stay was a disappointment. The road was a disaster, large potholes full of muddy water. The grass needed to be mowed, and we never did get their wi-fi to work. The final insult was: Since our last stay, the price per night went up over $10 per night. With some road repairs and general sprucing up, the park would be very nice, but I'm still not sure it would be worth $45 per night. - SW Ohio Travelers

Pool can be hit or miss with chemicals and being green. Grounds upkeep has significantly declined over the last 2 years. HUGE potholes everywhere, they have said they are adding gravel for the last 2 years, if it rains, it is a muddy mess on the roads! - AEGR

We stayed there for 2 nights with our GS camping chapter with 7 units and 1 using the very unsatisfactory cabin. The roads leading to the campsites are asphalt, but once you get to the area of the campsites the road turns to gravel and is full of numerous large potholes. On the one road you was supposed to leave out of campgrounds there was a pothole large enough to be a small pond and when I drove through it after a heavy rain with my Jeep Wrangler, I thought I was about to lose it in the pothole, it was so deep. When leaving this morning everyone try to avoid it by goin through an empty site over to the other drive which wasn't much better, but at least you wouldn't fall in. The park was very full as it was a NASCAR Weekend at Kentucky Raceway. The yard needed mowing and actually the whole park is in a state of severe array. Someone needs to get a hold of this park and clean it up or it is doomed to extinction. On a plus note, this park could be a SUPER NICE Campgrounds if someone would just give it a lot of TLC. Last but not least, it is also overpriced for what you get. Almost forgot, the Wi-Fi was atrocious, never was able to get on it. - paulbe

Found this campground just be chance online. It had only been open two weeks and they're a little unsure of the operations. Very neat and clean with concrete pads and paved roads. There are only 6 pull thrus and about 50 backins. The backins are only 40' of concrete but we were able to hang our axle over the concrete to fit (45'). Some big rigs in the wrong site might have a little hassle getting into their site. Small stoned area next to site for parking and sitting area. It would be nice to have had a picnic table. Check in is at the lodge next to the park. Very secure with a fence. Dog park. WES all fine. Wifi slow with very few users. No amenities for children. - Team Asphalt

Nice state park less than 15 minutes from Miami University. RV sites are electric only and pretty level. Nice space between sites. Although we didn't use the restrooms and showers, we did go in to check 'em out. Not super nice, but clean and will do the job. Large rolling grounds with plenty of hiking trails nearby. They accept Passport America for one night. Verizon service 2-3 bars 4G in the campground but very spotty out in the park. TV signal decent from Cincinnati (we received 30+ channels). Other than the occasional ranger on patrol, didn't really see any employees. That could be the late season. - 4forsmores

Park was having a Halloween weekend. We came in on Wednesday, just a few electric sites available & we couldn't fit. Attendant called boss & got a site that was held back released for us. Thank you. It was a squeeze to get our 36 ft class A coach in to the site. But we are here. Site has 30 amp, large stump, some low hanging branches, angles down & no water. So come in with water or fill before you go to your site. Many sites are very unlevel so be sure to check site before paying. Asphalt small pad is for your car. $19 average is for Passport America & regular weekend cost. - Peter K

Typical Ohio State Park. Restrooms & showers dated and need upgrades but it seems to me they have been in this condition for years and years. The staff does a great job with what they have to work with. Many trees have been removed due to the emerald ash borer infestation, so the sites are significantly less shaded but still OK. Great golf course in the park and is a good bargain. Price reflects Passport American/ Golden Buckeye discount. Will return because of the golf course. Walmart nearby in Oxford as well as Miami University. Some sites need lots of leveling but most are within easy fixing. Looks as if all sites get heavy use as grass is sparse at most RV sites. - cecerecreek

This campground was so bad, we did not want to stay. The electrical looked so bad we were afraid to plug into it. The grass was real high and we could see only one other camper and they looked like they lived there. Buildings were very old. This was under ACN and Passport America yet it is not worth any cost unless you really like very primative camping at a premium cost. - oldtiogatraveler

Your decision to stay here has to be purely price point driven. We stayed six nights and had to be near an airport, so we decided to give it a try. We were in the overflow area with electric only, which works fine for us. Verizon coverage was good. The cemetery across the road and the small lake behind the property (with a 1.4 mile walking trail which was nice) might lead you to believe it's fairly quiet. But traffic on the road this sits on starts about 5am, and includes heavy gravel trucks back and forth all day long. Understandably, there was a lot of MH traffic in and out since most were staying just one or two nights. If we were passing through the area again and needed one or two nights, we might stay again - it's hard to beat the price. - Roaming Together

What a nice little campground for FMCA members! It's $0 for the first 2 nights, then $20 for the next 5 nights. Very good for a few days stopover. Concrete, level pads set in cul-de-sac with FHU's. Spacing is good with lush green grass. This is an FMCA members only site, there are 15 sites with another 8 overflow sites with electric only. The closest place to that you can camp Cincinnati too. It's about a 20-40 min. drive to attractions depending on where you are going, so nice and quiet. Sure can't beat the price (free for the first two days, then $20 for any day there after up to a week. You really only need about 3 days or so to see Cincinnati anyway, so it's perfect. Great stopover place. - MarieB

Very good for a few days stopover. Concrete, level (!) pads set in cul-de-sac with FHU's. Spacing is good with lush green grass. This is an FMCA members only site, there are 15 sites with another 8 overflow sites with electric only. No facilities and grass was kinda tall while we were there. The rate is misleading, first 2 nights are free, $20 per night for up to additional 5 nights. - rvrrat520
