2 Parks near Hillsboro, Ohio

This is not a destination campsite. This is somewhere to go if you plan on boating and need a place to stay overnight. There's a decent "backyard" to the sites but to the front and sides, it's sardine city. Big campers are backed up against a tree to the rear and your truck has to go somewhere else, there's no room onsite and less than five "guest parking" spaces.
You need to be darn good at maneuvering your rig to make it into the tiny spaces. If it wasn't for my husband driving tractor trailers for the past 15 years, there's no way we could've gotten in with a 36' camper and dually. Even he had to wiggle and twist for a good 10 minutes before nailing it, and we're really not sure at this point how to ever make it out. The people beside us came in later with a much smaller fifth wheel camper and a regular sized truck. Getting in was nearly impossible for them too. They had to cut the wheel hard, bringing the truck two inches from the shower house, to make it happen. This involved two people guiding the driver and a whole lot of adjustments and corrections.
Unleashed large dogs roam the campsite freely, owners trailing behind at a distance. I haven't noticed any owners trailing behind with cleanup bags either.
There's free wifi but no one offered up a password to access it.
Bring a pallet if you come here. Everyone else has them. If it rains, you'll quickly find out why you needed it. - malik0976

The motorhome and travel trailer sites are level with gravel parking and grass in between sites. Facilities were clean. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to the campers. They walked the grounds every day and talked to the campers to make sure everything was OK. Easy access to Rock Fork Park and lake. We would stay here again. - Wayne Magill

Very nice shady treed sites up in the back part. No phone service for Verizon, but there is minimal broadband for our air card. Roomy sites . We were only there 2 days, but if in area again would like to spend at least a week. - joemama

Beautiful, but small park. Lots of sites fairly close together. We were here during severe storms and had the place to ourselves: so that said, it was wonderful having the lakefront spots to ourselves. In the summer, I can see where this could be a very busy, noisy and high traffic place. The park is easy to access, we had full hook-up's which worked great. Looks like a new shower house on the top of the hill over looking the lake. Most spots on the hill top were made with smaller RV's in mind. The lake front spots are more for big rigs. That said, not much shade, basically a parking lot, but plenty of grass and kept up very nicely. They are constructing a mini golf and the store looked like it was amply supplied. You are about 5 miles from Hillsboro for shopping purposes, there is a Wal-Mart and a Kroger store. We would definitely go back, but probably either early spring or after school starts. - buffy

One of Ohio's best state parks - a variety of sites, both near the water and higher up in the woods. Pricey without the Passport America rate which is good Sunday through Thursday. Paved roads and sites, although our full-hookup site was a bit short for a 40' MH and was not level. The reservation site can tell you if you can use your satellite, sites on the lower level are open, but the upper level is has many trees. Nice facilities, with a well-equipped store. Quiet and dark at night, this is probably a crowded and noisy park on summer weekends. Verizon cell and Aircard worked poorly, there is no broadcast TV or cable. Some of the best sites near the water cannot be reserved, but you can make a reservation and switch on arrival. A great park - we'll stay here again. - Meanderman
