Very convenient to 70. The park, staff and residents are wonderful. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the park was very well maintained - except the bathrooms. They were clean, but in desperate need of maintenance and overall repairs. The other issue is the strong iron smell from the water- it's almost overwhelming. The laundry room is also exceptionally small for such a large park. Most of the park is made up of permanents - however there's not a trashy site around. The pool was well maintained, there are plenty of activities and the dog park was pretty nice. - Rjjjbrown

If coming North on I-70, take exit 62 and turn right at top of the ramp. Park is a few hundred yards on the left. Gravel roads and pads. Pads were long enough and level. Some noise from the interstate. There is a sewer smell near the storage area due to holding ponds. Huge pavilion. This is a family oriented park. Lots of kids around. Playground and basketball courts were being used. Two fenced dog parks, plus several acres of mowed fields to walk your dog, fly a kite, etc. Big pool which was very clean. Golf carts are used to get around since its a big park. Most sites are seasonal or permanent, with only a few for overnighters, so reservations needed. Staff was friendly. Although not gated, there is on site security. Roads were dirt and some gravel, but looks like they may be getting ready to asphalt the roads. Most long terms sites are in shade, with overnight sites in sun and partial shade. Long terms sites were all very neat. We would stay here again. - okdiver

Camp is very visible from main road, coming from the east GPS had us pass the camp and make a U-Turn where the turnabout was wider. Road in is good with some bumps. Restroom requires a code they failed to mention its on the receipt. Good OTA TV reception. Looks like a very nice (pool not open yet). They have 2 shuffle board courts, and mini golf, among other activities. Good percentage of long term seasonal sites. Showers have bench, hooks, door and curtain. Shower hot water has strong sulfur smell, and most toilets have heavy mineral stains. ATT pone worked fine. WiFi was acceptable, till blocked by large RV. - KevinIrish

This is an older park but well kept and the volunteer staff are very eager to please. Family, pet and big rig friendly. Great swimming pool, lots of trees and many activities. Only one rest room/shower room/laundry, but is adequate and clean. Near interstate 70, which creates a little noise but not that noticeable. Will stay here again soon. - digger2280

We camped in a pull-through spot with full hookups in a grassy field. The spot was not particularly level. The water connection was located quite far from our rig and we did not bother to hook up. The park is listed as a resort and has many facilities (at least 40 years old) which are in severe disrepair. We used the laundry which was in OK condition. Two of the restrooms located near the laundry were not clean. The one good point was the camp host was very polite and helpful. We would probably not return. - Altoflyfisher

We arrived late and had not checked reviews. Poor access to the overnight site assigned. We asked for power and sewer and got neither in a gravel site. Gravel and dirt narrow road winding to end of the sites is difficult for big rig. Site was right next to the highway. The power box was blown and we could not use, too dangerous. Dogs were loose in the road and the sites. There was no sewer hookup. We left. Would never return there. - Pat and Jerry

Scenic, nice lake, trail, and forest. We watched a doe with her twins. Would have liked staying longer but couldn't. - Sue S

Sites are back in. There was barely enough room for our 31 foot 5th wheel and tow vehicle. The picnic tables at the sites really need to be updated; ours was in very bad shape. Some sites are very spacious and some are nearby. There are many tent sites and there were a lot of tents there when we stayed. There is only one bath house/restroom facility for each side of the campground. We were parked near the back of the first area and it was quite a walk to the restrooms, especially when you need one quickly. They could definitely use additional restroom facilities. There is a playground, but there isn't much there. The camp hosts didn't seem to do anything like some of the other state parks we've used. There is a decent camp store, but kind of expensive. We got 3 ice cream bars and it was $8.50. A camper's beach in the campground is a nice touch. We stayed here during the week when we get a 50% Golden Buckeye (senior) discount weekdays and 10% weekends. They also give military discounts. - Dagma

We stayed at this park 1 night on our way west. The park was easy to find and was away from the highway. We stayed during the week so that it was not busy. There is a lake for boating and swimming. The site was a back in but there was adequate room for parking a tow vehicle. We would stay here again. - Fredinmaryland

Stayed here for a nearby event. As stated levelness of sites is all over with very few not needing compensation one way or another. As also stated sites are not well defined & are rather close. Almost rally style close. There are some obviously very long term people there making the CG look somewhat trashy with the clutter long term people seem to breed. Noticed quite a few beer cans in fire rings. Beer cans don't burn. Too bad park operators do not evict offending litterers. One dump that is not easy to access with a large rig but it is doable. Very pretty location in a town park that is well maintained. - Veebyes

$ 25 for grassy sites with water/electric, picnic table, fire pit, WiFi from some sites Pros Located just outside of Dublin/Columbus OH - city park Within walking distance of the heart of town Friendly staff, Community pool within walking distance ($8/day I think) Clean and nicely designed bathhouses - though not temperature controlled Cons Sites are right on top of each other and not clearly defined - which leads to a lot of "spill over" from other campers Since sites are grass they are wildly unleveled Centrally located dumping station - only one site with FHU Shade was hit or miss - hopalongrving

This is an open field in a very nice town park. The water park there was not open but looked very nice. Sites are close together and fire rings/ picnic tables seem to be placed kind of randomly. - MamaBird

It wasn't a bad view but there was way too many hidden cost that you didn't expect. Example: Even though we were camping there, it cost to swim and if you have more then 4 people in your family it will cost more for the rest. I hate to say it but it did cut down on the fun because you had to keep an eye on your wallet all the time. All the hidden charges made it not so good of a time and will be on the bottom of my list next time I'm looking for a place to stay. - trip2347

The current part owners have owned it for two seasons. They are very nice and helpful and are working hard for improvements. They have a very nice beach and water slide area to a lake. We were there for a sporting event in a nearby town and it was pretty quiet that weekend. The set up would be really great for a group especially in their "Meadow" area. The Meadow did not have sewer and they did charge to use the dump station on the way out. Overall if we were in that area we would stay there again. It was pretty far off the beaten track but as said earlier it would be a great trip for a group. The rest were clean but old. - Novi MI

This campground is way overpriced for what you get, but there are hardly any other choices if you want to tour the Air Force Museum. (It's about 30 minutes away.) We called ahead and asked for two sites. Our friends needed a pull-through since they are having car trouble and couldn't unhook. The campground is located down some long country roads, but they are OK. The main entrance has a narrow gate that's kind of scary for a big coach, but if you go past that entrance, there's another one without a gate. You have to go to the 5th-wheel where the owner lives, and she was pretty disorganized. She had let someone else park on the pull-through site she had planned on letting our friends use, so they had to roam around the grassy area looking for a level place. She had given us a site with a nice concrete pad, but there was no way to get level on it, so we also had to try several grassy sites before we could find a level spot. Fortunately, there were no other campers in this area, so we just kept trying different ones. The large grassy area LOOKS level, but it's not! (My husband was just about to drive away!) And, none of those sites have sewer. We asked if the price was the same without sewer and she said we still had access to it by pulling up to a site with sewer, so the price is the same! (Of course, those are all taken, so there's no place to dump!) There is NO bathroom and no WiFi. I had a good enough Verizon signal to use data. It is a pretty campground with some small lakes surrounded by grass, and the other campers (mostly permanent) were friendly. Then there was the guy who came home from work and let his two big dogs poop in the grass near us without picking it up. I guess if he lives here, he thinks he doesn't have to! - mom2wildlife

We've stayed for both 2014 and 2015 summers as seasonal campers. It is a beautiful park. We loved the grass and the lake access for our Weims to swim. The owners, who also manage, and the help are very friendly and courteous. The problem is there's so much mismanagement and avoidance of uncomfortable situations with rowdy, drunk, weekend or holiday campers, makes this place a real problem for responsible campers.
But in 2016, they changed the deal on fishing in the stocked lakes. It used to be free fishing to all monthly/seasonal campers. No longer. $10 dollars for 12 hours. $300 for seasonal pass. In both cases, per person, not per site.
We absolutely loved this place until the changes in fishing, and the lack of authority by the owners/management. With proper management and more aggressive enforcement of rules, that is, quiet hours and rowdy, noisy, drunk parties, this place is a gold mine.
Nightly rate based on $400 monthly rate, including electricity. Price bumped up to $425 in 2016, with electricity. Very fair deal. - R_R PRanger

This park is like you are camping in someone's back yard. There are many full time residents here. The road to the park is a narrow farm road and is hard for big rigs. - Ba-01_

We stayed here in a brand new Bounder. Staff was very nice. Campers were very friendly. Fantastic fenced double dog run. Lovely setting. Shaded spots. Some traffic noise but we didn't hear it inside our RV. - Cherie in Ohio

An older campground that is small and plain, but is a really pretty setting. Campsites are gravel and/or grass and larger than most campgrounds we've been to. It's nothing fancy but we will go back. People are friendly and camping and fishing are relaxing. - Bippie D

This campground is truly a dump. Interior roads are gravel and full of pot holes making them unsafe for driving. Broken down motorhomes everywhere. The office is on top of a hill very difficult walk. Once there your met by a pit bull. The whole place is very scary looking. We couldn't get out of there fast enough. - derbycatz

Very clean quiet rural park. Grassy and spacious full hookup sites (water, sewer, 30amp & electric) with good mix of shade trees and open sites. Cellular signal was Ok (e.g., Verizon). Staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately no discounts for club memberships. Fairly large number of seasonals. However, all long-term units seem to be well maintained with clean sites and grass nicely trimmed. We would stay again with lack of camping club discounts being the only major negative. - rjohnso3a

The Park is well managed. They are very friendly and always willing to assist in any way possible. Park could use some improvements and site leveling, but is well maintained otherwise. We would stay here again when in the area. Management has plans for improvements. - Mem503

This is an older park with new owners who over and above will to try to serve you. The restrooms were spotless. Lots of seasonal campers with kids but they seemed to be well behaved. Noise was not a problem. This would be a nice campground for a family. - dfriesner

Been a couple years I think since I last posted about this campground. This year they added 10 paved 50 amp Pull throughs. Most of these are 100' long sites with plenty of room for rv and toad or Pull vehicle. These 10 electric sites were added over the 2017 winter and were available for use this year. So in total there are now 20 electric sites. The other 10 electric sites are older and tighter and short. The lake is still plagued by lily pads around the edges but dredging is suppose to be on the schedule. The naturalist does a great job with the kids with all kinds of projects. If you are from out of state, there is no access fees like many states charge. If you are from Ohio and have a golden buckeye card for being 60 you can get 50% off during the week if you reserve on line. - knightab

There are only 10 hookup sites, all pull through. All have 50 amp, no water, no sewer available. They fill up quick in the summer months so you need to reserve as soon as you know you are coming.
Lake is within walking distance at about 150 yards but there are lots of lily pads along the east shore. Limited ranger patrol as this is a small lake and they work out of Springfield. The local Game Warden does patrol as well. Now the Watercraft division is seen pretty regular.
Pit toilets only no showers. Dump station with potable water is available.
Good clean power.
Fishing is popular but can be tough fishing, large strippers have been caught here. Osprey are often seen diving for fish along with lots of deer and Blue Heron.
There are no motors: electric or gas allowed on the lake. It is a nice scenic lake to canoe, kayak or take a row boat out on, along with sail boats. Boats are available for rent at the marina and bait store. Lake is 2.5 miles long. You can leisurely kayak around the shore in about 3 hours. - knightab

Super nice campground, so quiet. Only has ten electric sites. In off season not many of the non electric were full. I really liked that the campground was on the water and that the lake was a no motor boat lake. Helped contribute to the quiet. All bathrooms were pit toilets, no shower facilities. Very nice for a few days visit. - naner
