The Lakeside loop has full hookups and is very big-rig friendly. There is decent distance between sites. There are no trees or other vegetation separating sites. The sites are paved and level. The upper campground is more crowded with some sites close together. There is a mixture of full hookups, electric only, and primitive. Many sites are shaded. Some of the sites are big-rig friendly, but many are not. There is a nice playground for the youngsters and disc golf and putt-putt available for the rest of us. There is also a good boat launch. A problem we noted was the camphosts would move the tables onto the middle of the site. When you arrived you had to get out and move the table. this could be a problem in bad weather or if you had physical limitations. There was no logical reason for this when we asked. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice park. The only drawback was that the beach was a few miles away. The spaces were a little close but not right on top of each other. The staff and patrons were friendly and the facilities were clean. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this campground, in the upper section, for two weeks. Different size sites and options. Nice size grassy areas around the sites. Some sections stayed wet for several days after a heavy rain. Polite and helpful staff. Other campers have been respectfully quiet. Glad to have found this campground and would stay here again. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Motorhome.

Full hookup at lake edge, wide lot and asphalt pad, no shade on site 319. Spots fill quickly at lake. New putt-putt course near check-in ($1.99 per player), three bay dump station, roads very maneuverable through park. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Hillsboro has a nice downtown, CowABurger...good food. Lots of boating and fishing at park, some short trails...everything well kept up at park. Will return sometime. Spillage and lake road is a nice drive. Despite hard rains, most sites drained quickly.

We come to Rocky Fork to rest and relax. We like lower level, next to lake. Sites are sort of close, but not so close that your neighbors can hear your conversations. Great value for only $17 a night full hook-up with your Ohio Golden Buckeye card. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Motorhome.

I have stayed here in Winter and Spring. The staff are very accommodating, especially in the Winter. Lots of park rangers as the park headquarters is at this campground on a hill overlooking the lower loop and lake. Campground is nothing special and rather small. Bathrooms at the lower loop by the lake need a major overhaul; just one shower that quickly loses heat after 10mins; and no privacy. Playgrounds needs work. Nice views of the lake. Verizon 4g LTE is strong. Park office and campstore wifi is strong too. Many different types of birds that migrate through-great for bird watching or star gazing. Some of the lower loop floods when it rains hard. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Little town of Hillsboro is just 10mins away. Smaller convenience stores less than 3 to 5miles. Paint Creek State park is down the road to the East about 14miles which has a nice 18hole disc course and a few mtn bike trails. Many national forest preserves with excellent hiking trails as well as Native American historical sites nearby. Military does aerial maneuvers above the area at night which is neat to watch when shooting their flares. Birding and fishing is very popular at this lake.

Enjoyed our stay. Miss the Ash trees though. A lot of them had to be cut down. Some sites need fill dirt and grass replaced. Can get muddy at times. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice place for us to get away. A bit noisy during the day but quiet at night. Swimming is not available there at the park. Great views of the lake are available, however, shade down at the lakeside is limited. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Good visit to the full hookup lake view section of the campground. Mostly all sunny sites, very few trees to provide any shade, and it appears more sites are being prepared for 2008 opening. Beautiful sunrise over the lake. Good fishing, Ohio license required. Paddleboat rental at the camp store, and pontoon rental available at the marina. Rocky Fork SP has several different areas, a pleasant driving tour is suggested. Good State Routes leading into campground, not difficult to get into. Our site was described as "slight slope" but we had no trouble getting level at all. Drove through the other sections of the campground; some shady spots, some not. There are some full hookup in that area also, most sites are electric only; sites not as spacious as down by the lake. Camp store people very pleasant and helpful. Note- Verizon cell service is spotty/ non-existent in this area, pay phone provided near camp store, and park has emergency numbers if someone needs to find you ! Did not use restrooms, but most areas of the campground appeared very clean ! We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
