Not a bad campground. Just off I-71 north of Columbus. Site 421 good sat. reception. Good Verizon service. Good campground wifi. Electric and water good. In looking at other sites in this area, not all the FHU's were in a good position for RV's some had long runs for elect. and water ask when calling about position of hookups. Sites level, gravel and enough grass for rover. Before coming to this campground call ahead. It is a place for skeet shooting (very large facility) and they host events, calling ahead to make sure they are not booked. Check in open just til 4 pm. most days. There was a sign that there were not check in's after 11:00 pm. There are a few different areas and types of campsites in this campground. It would be wise to pull up a map of the campground before showing up. Sounds of people shooting skeet were no problem. Some sound from I-71. They have made berms and planted trees to cut the noise. Noise may be a problem only in a few sites near the freeway. And as an odd note: we were here in Oct. and our site had a walnut tree that was dropping large nuts onto our RV and car. Was able to move to the rear of the site, but if you come here the second week of Oct. or so ask about the walnut trees. - wtravlr1

We stayed here many times on our way South and again back North. Hookups are easy access. Very long pull thru, satellite friendly. Wi-FI weak, couldn't use but it was just an overnight stay. - Jane-D100

Excellent campground. Reason for 9 instead of 10, closeness to Interstate. They have tried to reduce the noise by building berms and it does help. This is a park trying to take care of its patrons. I will stay here again. The space between sites is the largest I have ever seen outside a State park. - Jack&Wanda

Nice quiet at night. To many golf carts tho, the constant parade of carts kicks up dust making it unpleasant to sit outside. - GraySeal

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

Park is nice. Love the trails. Our site is a disaster. We are camping here for the Labor Day weekend. Shortly before we arrived, the new bathroom/shower/laundry facility was completed. Great news, except it's about 15-20 feet away from our camper. We're parked on a concrete slab, and the building sits right at the end of it. Naturally, everyone in the park is walking and biking straight through our campsite. DO NOT BOOK SITE 25. This should not be a site, period. - Ohio RV family

This state park just recently added several back-in, full-hookup campsites with brand-new cement pads. I had plenty of room for my 32' motorhome and the hookups worked fine. The problem is that the grass is going to take a little time to recover so mud was a problem. Also, the lake has been temporarily drained to raise the dam 2', so if you want to fish or boat, you need to call to find out if the project is finished and the lake refilled. Overall, it is good to see improvements being made and the park should be very nice by next summer. Verizon service was adequate. - judy_online

This park is setup for small campers. Sites are so close that we could not enjoy our stay. Not much to due here. The 2 lakes are more like lagoons. - jemerson

This place use to be a KOA until 2003. I'm not sure if the owner or KOA decided to take the name off. Right off of U.S. 71. Narrow entrance road. Restrooms need a serious cleaning or two. 3/4 of the campground is seasonal. Sites were narrow or they could have a tree in the way so your awning would not extend. We stayed the weekend. They were not busy at all so you might be able to pick a respectable site. The playground is an insurance agent's nightmare. If you wanted to tent camp and fish the two ponds, this is the place. - coorslight

I drove up with my dog Friday night to set up for the family arriving Saturday. When I checked in one of the staff members escorted me to the site and assisted with me backing in. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. The daily overnight sites are very close to all the amenities of the campground so some might find the "traffic" in that area a bother, but I liked the atmosphere. The showers are very nice and clean and private. The walking path around the pond is a must see. Very relaxing and there are no sites that sit right on the pond so everyone can enjoy its beauty. The upper camping area is for seasonal guests and is very well kept and has gravel roads for travel and great walking. Oh, did I mention we loved it so much we are returning next year for the season! A truly hidden gem in the area! - sadkins6

This is a large RV park that appears to serve a number of seasonal campers. They have a schedule of activities for those staying more than one night. We had arrived after the office closed and they had left a packet taped to the front door with the usual info and a large map of the park with the route to the site clearly highlighted. The wifi worked at our site but like most it, it lost connection no and then. Local TV channels from Columbus were easy to get. While the site spacing was fairy close, most would have little trouble with slides. - Trailbuddy

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 stayed here the third week of September. Because we were staying for 8 days we got 1 night free. The park is fantastic whether you have children or are seniors like us. We had a beautiful sight over looking the lake and the beach. The owners and staff are very attentive, and friendly.
We arrived on a Sunday, and the park was quiet and very few daily spot were full, mostly seasonal trailer, and their owners were gone home for the week. They told us that come the weekend it would fill up, and it sure did. The grounds are well kept as we observed the maintenance crews during the weeks taking care of every thing. Every site has a camp fire ring . The camp store ( called the Ranger Station) not only has everything you need it also has a great porch with tables and chairs and rockers where you can sit and watch big screen TV while you enjoy your ice cream you just purchased. You can sit on the porch and get free Wi-Fi. The owners are very friendly and when we were checking out my husband was having a great conversation with the husband and I was having a conversation with the wife, we left an hour later than we planned. I don't think you will find a better place in the area. We had a full hook-up site which included cable. We had 60 available stations and the picture on out TV was crystal clear.
Make sure you have full direction. If you are coming in during the evening hours like we were, you can miss Township Road 99. This is a small two lane road and the only lights are your headlights. - The Islanders

This park is very well run. The owners are active and they have continuous activities for the kids. There is a clean pool and 2 well run water slides. The bathrooms near our loop were new and always spotless. There were no separate activity fees, kayak and paddle boats are included in your stay, and there is a honey wagon that will come and pump you out. The lake is Beautiful and there is a Sandy swimming beach. this is truly a great place to unwind and we will be back. - Trinket

This is a nice campground but the sites were more dirt than grass and the overnight rate was a little expensive with the extra kids. The water slide was nice but we didn't like the swimming pool set up. They had fun activities for the kids, nice store and swimming pond. We didn't hike but the woods looked nice. - Joe K

We stayed at Rustic Knoll Campground this weekend and it was fantastic! All the restrooms and showers were extremely clean. They had two ponds. The fishing pond was very well stocked. The swimming pond was clear to the point to where we could see the bottom. The owner went out of his way to make every guest feel welcome. We camp a lot and most campgrounds you only see the staff if you go to the office. The owner was always walking around checking on the facilities and talking to the guests. This weekend he hosted (and played) in a golf outing with the guests. I can't wait to see what other activities he has planned at the campground. We will definitely be going their again frequently. - Marcummo

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

This is one of the quietest little parks I have ever camped at! The view from our campsite (right on the water) was amazing! My kids had a blast at their playground area. This is one of the smallest campgrounds I have been to, yet my father-in-law had no trouble maneuvering the 40' 5th wheel around the lot. There were a lot of seasonal campers here and they had a camp wide yard sale while we were there. The lake water was very nice and the 10hp restriction on boats made it nice for those who were kayaking. - Permacamp

We were looking for a place to stay in the general area open in early April to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. This is a very nice campground. The 'pod' layout created generally large campsites, some shaded, others in full sun, some private, others within site of others. Most were level with a paved parking pad. Our pod had electric only sites and a bath house. There's water and a dump station near the park entrance. Rates are $28 per night with 50% off for Passport America. There's no wifi. Verizon and ATT coverage was ok. The park is self service early in the season. - dsvt

This state park is very nice. We stayed here 5 nights and the park is quiet, clean and the facilities are well kept. Our site had a fire ring and picnic table. The roads are paved and the sites are as well. All of the sites are back in only, but they are very spacious in width and length. There is no water at the site, or sewer, but there is electric and a dump station. The only downside to the park is the rude staff that works in the entry booth to the park. She deliberately keeps the lights off to make it appear that the office is closed during working hours. If you need to purchase anything or renew your reservation you will have to stop and go in the booth, even if it looks closed. Despite that, we would definitely stay here again. - Perfection expected

Very nice state park. There are a lot of things that need attention, but we really like this park. There is a lot to do here. Tis a a very large park. Just needs to have some new shower houses and the roads resurfaced. - jemerson

This state park is very pretty and clean. We stayed in one of the full hookup sites and had no problems with them. The site was very level and long enough for our mh and tow car. The park is loaded with poison ivy so we walked our dog on the paved roads to avoid exposure. The showers had nice hot water and great pressure, but frustratingly, there is no place to put shampoo etc. Also the curtain didn't cover the whole opening. We enjoyed the stop and would stop at this park again. - Travelindog

Trees need trimming lots of "roof scrapers" on the way in. Night time campfire smoke was real bad. - GraySeal

1.Online campsite map deceiving. The lake is beautiful but access to it a bit rough.
Carry your fishing gear down narrow path twist and turns along with drop offs.
2. We are in for a 4 day stay. Think I caught the same turtle twice."humor".
Stink bugs,,,,,,lots and lots of stink bugs.
Campsite are pretty level and spacious. Very clean.
Unless you are in good shape and like to fish. Otherwise don't get a site by the lake. Better off to save a few bucks and drive to boat launch area to fish. Other than that. Nice park except for a lot of stink bugs getting all over your rv.
Don't think we'll be back though. - Dan Brown Sr
