Aug 2016 - $30.00
On PA-51, about 6 miles from the Ohio border. Turn east/south at the blinking yellow light onto OH-168, Salem Church Road then about .8 mile, turn right on Hodgson Road, then .8 mile and left into the CG.
Weekly rate $170; monthly $380. No credit/debit cards accepted; cash or check only. All electric is metered, even for daily visits ($0.11/kwh). One employee who is very friendly and helpful. Municipal access roads are sufficiently wide, maintained, asphalt but lots of ups-and-downs. Watch for one low-hanging tree on Hodgson Road. Internal roads are gravel, somewhat narrow with no overhead obstacles.
A variety of sites which are grass/gravel with mowed lawns and occasional tall trees. A few sites have patios; most have picnic tables. All sites are FHU-20/30/50, level with pedestal at the road end of the sites. Sufficient clear sky for satellite antennas. No cable TV. Fires permitted in fire rings. Well water has low, but adequate pressure and okay taste. No office store. No propane sales. Restrooms/showers are old but clean with newer fixtures but minimal privacy (score "B-"). No laundry.
Spacious, grass playground. Very nice, unheated, salt water pool. No spa. Free Wi-Fi but internet access is weak and unreliable. Verizon coverage is dismal at "½ bar." CG is in the country and is very quiet. No recycling bins. - StephenK

We stayed for 4 days visiting relatives in the area. The campground was nice and neat. We got a shaded, pull-in site. Many of the RVs seemed as if they were seasonals and were empty. Check in was fine and the campground was easy to find and access. They only accept cash or checks, so happy we remembered the checkbook. There was a nice playground; the kids enjoyed that quite a bit. The owner lady knocked on our RV to remind us that the pool was open, but we were busy with relatives. It was nice she thought about the kids. At checkout (we were trying to leave at 9am), no one was in the office or adjacent trailer so had to call the owner's phone. Wanted someone to come read the electricity meter, but could not get a hold of anyone. Finally, at departure time, as we were pulling out, we ran into one of the attendants and he read the meter. There was no delay afterall, but didn't like that I couldn't find anyone initially. (Only $9 for 4 days for electricity.) Overall, good experience & would stay here again when visiting family in Beaver.
Initially, I was concerned about the other negative reviews and questioned booking here, but turned out fine and it was convenient. There were RULES posted rather excessively (no rugs or anything on grass, etc) around the campground, but we experienced no issues or tongue-lashings; think they just take pride in their campground. - Camping with kiddos

We stayed here with a travel trailer and a tent. They are very unorganized and kept moving us to different sites. They don't want anything on their grass. The owners are not friendly and yelled when our truck went in the grass to make the turn into our spot. They have a swing on the playground that is apparently for handicapped kids although there is nothing indicating that. I was swinging my daughter in it and the owner came over and told me to get her out because he paid too much money for her to ruin it. They charge you extra for your electric usage on top of your nightly fee. There are no activities except bingo and there is one bath house at the front of the park. I would not camp there again. - beaglefamily24

We only stopped over night on the way home from western Ohio, but we will definitely be back to explorer the park and the area. Our route was along the Ohio Scenic Byway and was an pleasant end to an otherwise horrendous drive along Rt 71.
The park is off the beaten path and being a Sunday night, there were plenty of open site, but only a few big rig friendly. The site we were in was 30 A and no water, but there is a water fill and dump station near the park office. I saw the pool but did not go for a swim, but again will plan on taking full advantage of the amenities another trip.
The staff was very friendly and even offered to escort me back to my site. It's heavily shaded so no satellite but over air was acceptable. - htowners

Gorgeous state campground to top of hill. Large wooded sites. Great trails for hiking and ponds for fishing. If your looking for a relaxing camping trip with quiet nature all around you then this is the place. Campground has a well laid out dump and water fill station, small campground store. At the entrance of the campground which is at the bottom of the hill is a large pool with a water slide and jumping board. Also they serve hot food at the pool area. Local sheriff makes routine patrols thru campground. - mdcamping

Yes there is so much to do here. We stayed 3 nights and did not get to do all that we wanted. My GPS had no issues getting us there. There are several signs directing you which way to go. Yes the road to the campground is not ideal. It is paved, but bumpy and windy. This is a public road and no fault of the campground. Leaving, we encountered a big rig coming in. No problem if you both pull over and let the other pass slowly. In the campground itself, the roads are narrow so again, pull over and let the other pass. The owner was super nice and appreciative that we stayed at his campground. Our site sat back off the road and had plenty of grassy area in front. Site was level with gravel where you park the trailer and a stamped concrete patio. Negatives - Bathhouses are spaced out. Each loop has a bathroom, but they are like outhouses. There was air in our water line so the pressure was not the greatest. The other couple with us in the next site had the same issue. Sometimes the cold water would come out hot for a bit. None of this would keep us from returning. - JillaRoo

PROS: Situated in beautiful canyon, with loops of camping sites about a mile into the canyon, with a creek meandering through. Large lake with paddleboats. Numerous playground areas for kids. Good signage. Well maintained. CONS: Restrooms were basically outhouses, although they did have RV toilets. No sinks, just a hand sanitizing station outside of each. The approach to the park is about a mile of a narrow, winding steep one lane road -- scary in an RV. Poor Wi-Fi connection in the park. When we visited, I think we were the only visitors, although the park was about half full of year-round residents. The year-round rigs were well maintained, with landscaping, storage sheds, permanent decks, golf carts. However, we felt like intruders in a mobile home park. - Paul and Jeannette

We are not familiar with the area at all, being from Texas. After some investigating around we chose this park for a few nights on our way to Boston. It appears to be a destination park for lots of folks and does have quite a few residents. We weren't here on a major holiday, but judging by the weekend crowd I imagine this place gets packed. We drove into Pittsburgh two days which was fine. The park is in the middle of nowhere, but the drive is scenic. All facilities worked fine. We stayed in the Red Carpet Row Section. (back-in) Really nice patio and fire ring up against a backdrop of huge trees and creek running behind. Our GPS did not have an optimal route into the park, but the GPS on our phones did. The drive into the park isn't all that treacherous. We have a 37' motorhome pulling a Honda CRV and did fine. As far as kids activities, they have it all. We did rent a boat one day and zip around the lake. There are very few grocery options around or gas stations. Owner/Manager/staff are very nice and helpful. Great place for families and kids or travelers like us. Only downfall to me was, seems everyone started making campfires around 4:00. Some smoke lingers around. - mikel

Nice park, quiet and relaxing. Enjoyed to back to basics of camping. Pool was not open for the season, but looked like it would be fun. Many things to do in the surrounding area. Sites were easy to get into. Would recommend park to other campers. - cinnamon

Very out of the way campground. Older campground but the facilities and grounds were clean. Park sites are on grass. Very friendly people and a good site for the money. We would stay here again. - Rick Lechner

Campground is a little shabby but fine. Owner is very nice and involved. There were several seasonal units that looked old and tired. Sites are on grass - need leveling blocks. Voltage seemed low at times despite no need for AC at this time - concern that voltage may be too low to run the AC in the summer. Soft water. Bath/shower facilities are not heated but clean. Down in a valley so no cell phone service whatsoever. Only one TV station comes in strong - NBC station from Steubenville. Pool was not open yet. Small playground area. A little bit off the beaten path. There seem to be many activities in surrounding area. Good for a group as there is a rec building. Would stay here again, wish more commercial campgrounds were as decent as this one. - NancyB

This campground has been forgotten. Electric will drop to nothing and you will burn out your appliances. There is no working bathrooms, showers, or dump station. They don't even tell you this info upon arrival. Steer clear of this one! - exit to

COE parks are some of our favorites but not this one. We arrived for a two night stay and noticed a large "No Refunds" sign at check in area and should have been a warning for upcoming conditions. We were in the Hickory Loop site 12. Electric box had duct tape over 50 amp outlets and water was nowhere to be found. Walked to restrooms and saw three portable toilets outside restroom building. Inside was a very dirty, buggy and outdated restrooms. Looking for the shower building, we unfortunately found another disgusting restroom, worse than the hickory ones, in the aspen loop. Bugs were harassing us the whole way but finally found the shower building. A clean building but only scalding hot water available for both men's and women's showers. Also water smelled bad and not drinkable. - JESUSisLovefl

My family really enjoyed this campground. We stayed in the Hickory loop and found our site (#41) to be spacious. The grounds were well kept and clean. There was a lot of space between sites, but very little foliage separating them. The bathrooms were not very nice and toward the end of the day pretty dirty, but still usable.
The staff and campground hosts we encountered were very nice and helpful. The camp hosts sold ice cream treats ($1) and well seasoned firewood ($5) for the Friends of the Mill Creek Campground.
We will be returning to Mill Creek campground soon. - GregT44266

Unfortunately, this facility is closed "for the foreseeable future" due to a failure in the wastewater transmission system. The system can't handle the water to provide showers and toilets for campers, and keeping the area open could pose a health risk to campers. Officials are still trying to determine what the best course of action is to remedy the problem. The Corps could decide to either repair the system, or replace and modernize it. A spokesperson says if they deem it necessary to replace the system completely it could cost a minimum of $2 million. There is no estimate on how much it would cost to merely make repairs. Securing funding for either option would mean getting the support of national lawmakers. The Army Corps of Engineers would have to receive funding through a Congressional Budget line item. At this time, it's not known when the campground will be open again. - ShawnK

Beautiful grounds with large lake for water sports. Very popular with local folks. Sites spacious, however, a number of motorhomes had wheels off the ground due to uneven ground. We could not get satellite pick-up due to many trees. Showers and bathrooms are old, and fairly clean. Would stay again, in a different site. Price reflects Senior Pass 50% discount. - RoadWarriors2

They have a boat launch, clubhouse with pool table, foose ball, piano, DJ's and band on the weekends, crafts on Saturday mornings. There is always something to do, or just hang out at your campsite for peace and quiet! We enjoyed so much, that we've become seasonal campers. - Kitchen73-J

Overall good time! We like to have fun and play music late at night and it never seems to be an issue. The restrooms are pretty bad but we have a camper so we don't use them anyways. The lady that runs the place is pretty nice but she will make sure she gets her money from everyone that comes there, even if you just come to visit for an hour or so you have to pay about $5 per person. There is a nice little trail to the lake where you can swim, and do some fishing too. I will go back there for sure! - Bigarbslovers

This RV park is a bit hard to find for someone not from the area. It is remote and very quiet. Has a large pool. Has a number of permanents who use their spot for weekend get-aways. It is a pretty park and quiet while we were there. Level sites. Helpful and friendly staff. - W Davidson

This Campground was formerly known as Campers Paradise which is when I stayed here. New owners have made improvements which include adding a pool. Very friendly seasonals. - Lakewood Camper
