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

Great park and we will definitely stay here again. Preferred access is via Pleasant Valley Rd which is paved almost all the way to Keys Rd. The unpaved section and Keys Rd are no problem. No sewer hookups for transients though some of the seasonal sites - all occupied - have sewer. Big rig sites are new with nice large concrete pads and gravel parking spots. Sites are mostly shaded and you may have trouble getting satellite from a stationary mounted dish. Should be OK with a movable dish however. There is no pool but a very nice swimming pond with dock and floating raft, sandy beach and bottom. There is also a catch and release fishing pond. Showers and bathroom are very clean though I couldn't get really warm water in the shower and they are the kind that requires you to push a button every 5 seconds to keep the water flowing. Sites are available for tenting and there are also a few new log cabins available for rent. There are some organized activities for children, a game room, basketball court and huge grassy areas for play. The park is carefully managed and meticulously maintained by the owners. Open approximately Apr 15 through Oct 15. - Buckeye44

This campground is in a very quiet area with some scenic driving in both directions from the campground. All of the sites other than the seasonals are on grass but are fairly large. There is a small play area for children as well as a decent pool and putt-putt course. They have an on-site canoe livery which we used and enjoyed. There are a lot of seasonals but still plenty of room for weekenders and overnighters. The water is well water but I didn't think it was any worse than any other campground with well water. The restrooms were in need of a good cleaning and needed updated. - ACGreen

The campground is located on the Kokosing River. All river front sites are taken by seasonal campers. River is easy to get to and can be waded. Second year for new owners. They are adding two big lakes to the front of the campground. Two main problems were the restrooms and the water. The restrooms were below average. The water had an awful smell and feel. I don't know if a water filter would help or not. - coorslight

Camped in a 35 foot fifth wheel on site 112. Led to site. Site long enough for rig & truck. Across lane from woods & non-awning side of site is distant from neighbor, & grassy. Some well trimmed trees provide shade. Required one board to level. Site is large, clean stone with grass, nice picnic table. No AT&T cell coverage (outside park & up road got coverage), slow WiFi, six antenna TV channels. Very quiet & dark at night. Restrooms well maintained. Did not use pool, but looked clean. Nice walking areas in woods & around large campground. Large playground, basketball & volleyball courts, horseshoes, miniature golf, fishing ponds. Ohio route 97 from Interstate 71 is rather narrow & is well marked. Watch for Bunker Hill street sign past Butler village. Campground is on the right if coming from route 97. - Scottsdale RVers

Halloween themed weekend. Several activities planned (pumpkin carving, costume contest, haunted hayride and haunted house). Costume contest was very disorganized and rigged since the winners were all same family. Haunted House and Hayride was fun and pretty scary. Had a backin site in the 90's, which were gravel and it sloped up hill more than one could really level out properly. This area is really nice part of Ohio and the campground is well maintained. Roads to the campground are a little winding and rolling so you have to use caution getting to this one...especially if you arrive at night. - DoubleEE

We were here with 2 other families for Memorial Day weekend. I was a little concerned about camping on the holiday weekend as we have had bad experiences other places. The owners have their home in the campground and must have kept a watch over things. Quiet hours were observed in the loop we were in, and we observed no problem campers the whole weekend. There were many activities for the children, which they greatly enjoyed. The sites we were in were large enough for us to congregate in and the children to play. The owners were very accommodating for the few special requests we had. The upper loops have a rest room facility with 2 family rooms- toilet, sink and shower. They were clean when we used them. Everyone liked it so well that we plan to make this an annual event. The were only a few negatives. The road to the campground is a little narrow and there is an intersection just north of the campground where visibility both direction is a problem. They are far enough out in the country that the internet is slow. Not their fault, but it just is. We have no problem recommending this campground and plan to camp here again. - K_and_I

A very nice campground that we spent 2 nights and very quiet. The only concern was where they had us park, the site was not level at all...our front wheels were a front up in the air to get level...don't really like that. Everything else was fine. - CMcgirr

This park is not convenient for the overnighter, but I suppose could be a nice destination park for families. That said, however, while the grounds seem well taken care of, the shabbiness of the many seasonal trailers was far from welcoming; certainly wouldn't want to be parked next to one of these. Thankfully, we were only here overnight, and will not be returning. The only reason I rated it at a "2" is because it does have water and electricity, but that's the best one could say about this place. - Stella's Mama

This is no longer a Jellystone. Some sites are muddy and many sewer connections are unaccesible. The park needs a lot of work. Probably will not camp here again. - Main Spark

The folks who run the place are super nice and helpful. The campground is beautiful and peaceful. Shower facility has hot water and plenty of pressure. We well definitely frequent this campground for the quick weekend getaways. - Fireball1

This is a no-frills campground, but we loved our stay. Lots were large and level. You are right off a Rails to Trails bicycle path, which is level and well maintained. The Owners were top notch in friendliness. They bent over backwards to make sure we were settled in and happy. They have free river tubes, so you can take a ride down the river you are right next to. How often does that happen that you don't have to pay for the extras? Great fun. This is a keeper on our camping book. - Let'sGo!

Rate reflects PA weekly rate. The best feature of this park for us was easy access to the paved Richland B & O Bike Trail, which runs right behind the campground. Most sites are shaded, which is a problem for roof mounted satellite dishes, but keeps you cooler. - Ken and Lee

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

We called for a site for a 35' bumper pull trailer and were assured that they had a spot for us. When we arrived our spot was a back-in, too small for our trailer. The spaces are very tight and trees are planted near the front of some sites. Other campers' vehicles are parked along the road so you cannot cut your tires to turn. I would recommend that you only make reservations for a pull-through if you are more than 24', otherwise you will be very disappointed. - WindRiver

We camped here and canoed at another location. The staff was friendly and we had a nice secluded tent site. - angles87

We love this campground. It's a very family-friendly. Our favorite spots are in the back next to the creek which the kids love to play in. It's only a foot deep max. Our spots are surrounded with mature trees and are huge. You can sit in our spot around the camp fire and watch the kids play in the creek.
The only downside is they are electric and water and cable, no sewer.
This year they added a BMX bike track and laser tag and frisbee golf. There are also adding a new shower house. The current shower house is fine and well kept. It's a nice family run campground. Super great for the kids with lots of activities. It's not as big as some campgrounds but that suits us great. There's a nice place to get snacks and ice cream.
The pool is a little small but the water is always warm and nice, and there's a splash pad right next to it. There's also a zip line and a wire obstacle course.
Very secluded down in a ravine in the trees. Camping the way that it should be. It's family-owned and I think both the daughter and son are involved. Everyone who we've interacted with are good people and the staff is great. - osubuck94

Great place for a family campout. They have a zip line, playground, food window with pizza, ice cream, etc., swimming pool, shallow creek to wade in, very large laser tag area. Camp store. Very nice. Many planned weekend events. Clean laundry room.
We waded in the creek, granddaughter used the zip line, pool, play ground and climbing obstacle course. They also had minature golf but we ran out of time to use it.
We have already returned once this year and have reservations this fall for their Halloween weekend. - Atthecrossroads

We had a creek back-in site with friends camping next to us for a weekend. Grass sites are level, large, and flexible. Many activities available for children. Great camp store with good food and friendly service. Fire ring overlooking the creek along a mature tree line. The only concern during our stay was an abundance of barking dogs that weekend. - SKT

Beautiful state park. Our favorite place to camp when visiting Mohican/Amish area. Nice store and newly remodeled showerhouses with ceramic tile and fresh paint. Quite a big improvement from our stay last year. Site 90 is spacious and the fire ring is situated right on the river bank for a great view. Plenty of room for a screen house or canopy on this lot. The only bad thing is it tends to be a little muddy in rainy weather but the campground has attempted to fix this by laying straw down on the affected areas. This was a minor inconvenience to us and wouldn't deter us from booking this site again in the future. - loribrady

Pretty park, sites have nice separation but no privacy. Gravel pads with grass surface. We had a full hook up site (#60) which is really nice to have at a state park. It's also a back-in site with plenty of space behind the camper for kids to play. The "pullover" aka drive-through sites are cramped. Lots of tall, mature trees to provide shade. The surrounding hills make for pretty scenery. The park has a great swimming pool with a recently added splash pad and new, extensive playground equipment. The camp store has the basics along with a few extras like gem stone mining and inner tubes for sale to use on the adjacent river. The restrooms are typical state park- cement floors and cobwebs but the fixtures were clean and the soap dispenser was refilled. The shower houses could use some more frequent cleaning especially during heavy use. A couple of the shower houses also had laundry machines. Although the campground was full, we didn't feel overcrowded. There is an IGA in the nearby town along with a few fast food restaurants, Post Office, etc. Just outside the park are places you can rent canoes and an impressive looking high-ropes course. Our At&t phones had NO reception. We also had NO over the air TV stations and NO AM/FM radio stations. Total media blackout! The sites near the front of the park had weak signals. This is a pretty area of Ohio with rolling hills, dense forests, and picturesque farms along with a large Amish population. - Fdwt994

We spent a very rainy weekend at the park, where we have stayed before. We had electric hook ups and the sites varied in depth. Our trailer (20') and pickup just fit on a rather narrow paved pad but there sites were roomy and ours was on the end of a circle next to the creek so it was very pretty. There is a pretty basic camp store in the park but it does serve coffee and some snacks. It is a pretty park but the campground was very full and at times the extra vehicles parked in/on sites made hauling through a bit tricky. There are parking lots for those vehicles but they weren't always observed while we were there. - Nemacarol

Most camp sites have 50 amp, water and many have sewer. I think there are about 500 sites.
They offer trap, skeet and sporting clays shooting, archery and international trap. Besides the shooting, they have a great heated indoor pool with great filtration equipment so it is always clean and filtered. Also GREAT wifi all through most of the park.
Don't try to get a spot here during the three big trapshoot events at the end of May, middle of June and August.
Other then that, it is a lovely place to camp. Playground area, horseshoes and cornhole. We have camped here for 10 years. Love this place. - motordoctor

Large campground, nicely maintained, lots of activities, basic to deluxe sites. The campground is next to and part of a large trap shooting range. A meet was scheduled the week following our visit. Don't know if the noise would be a problem during the day. Shooting is aimed away from the campground. Would stay again. - Bobo Pruns

The campground had spacious sites, some trees, well maintained. Had an indoor pool, stocked fishing lake, basketball court, horseshoes, and corn hole all free of charge. No dog park but plenty of green spaces to walk the dog. We camped overnight in a 40' rig. - 4RollingGs
