BAD experience. We entered the park and our first thought was beautiful place. We went to register and that's when the good thoughts stopped. They informed us we would have to unload our car before going up to our "PULL-THRU" spot because we couldn't fit it around the corners even though our RV was only 34 feet long towing a mini cooper on a dolly. Something that might have been mentioned when we booked our site. They didn't have a spot to pull over and unhook the car so there we were doing it in the main thoroughfare while other cars were trying to come in. Then they escorted us up to our "PULL-THRU" and made us pull up to the far side so that a tent camper could use the back portion of the site the next day. Now the hose wouldn't reach the hook-up. We let their management know this and said that the spigot was to be shared with the tent they sent someone up with an extension hose so it could reach the back of our RV. As he hands it to us, he tells us we should probably be storing water in our tanks because often on the weekends when they have a lot of people, they run out of water (LOVELY). We looked on the internet at reviews of this place and sure enough people had complained about them running out of water. Can you imagine? We then turned on our water and the pressure was almost nonexistent. We took our dogs for a short walk and there was hardly anywhere we could walk them. Not a dog friendly place at all. We started adding up the negatives about this place and decided to leave early especially because a Volley Ball tournament was scheduled on Saturday, our departure date, and the manager said we would be hard pressed to find a spot to hook the car up again because of the traffic jams foreseen. We told them about the problems and they just shrugged their shoulders and said: "Sorry." Totally not concerned we were unhappy in the slightest and wouldn't give us our money back. - HurricanTraveler

As noted in other posts, great for the lake swimming, diving,
jumping and having fun for the kids. This was our second
visit, and we enjoy everything about this place.
I would not suggest going their in a motorhome over 40',
and you better be good at navigating very narrow passages.
For-purchase wifi was very good and reasonably priced.
Although we had a 50 amp site, any draw over 30 amps,
would drop the voltage below 105 and trip our master breaker.
We just managed our loads, and were OK. - macandphyl

The first impression I had when I drove in was wow! When you come in there is a lake full of people. They have a zip line that goes around and through the park.
When you check in someone will take you to your site and make sure your happy.
The park is immaculate. We sent pictures to our daughter, so she can bring her family here. - Lindas Old Man

We stayed out on the Peninsula, Section F. It worked well for our group of 6 campers. People were friendly and quiet. You can fish nearby. The beach is not close by, but you can drive or ride a bike there easily. The showers are clean and free. - breakingwind

I have stayed at Atwood several times over the last few years, always with a group in their group sites. The group sites are electric only with a pit toilet, you have to go to the main campground to use the showers and flush toilets. I found the shower houses to be very well appointed and clean, with plenty of hot water.
This is a large park with a very large campground, filled with mostly seasonal campers. Plenty to do, with a nice activities center where the is slow wifi and games, boating, fishing, hiking, a decent camp store, and a restaurant on site. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Most sites are spacious and vary between shady to full sun. - Cyclonic

The important thing to know about Atwwod park is that it is almost entirely seasonal campers. The overnight sites are poorly marked and the website does not give very accurate descriptions. Be sure to reserve online...apparently any other way does not necessarily guarantee a spot. But call to check if your unit will fit in the site you are interested in. The bathrooms NEVER had toilet paper during the weekend we spent there. Not every site has a fire ring either. Our site was nice and large and we enjoyed ourselves, but we will not go back...just to crowded and busy and the bathroom facilities were not nice. Interior roads are paved, but seasonals are parked all over the place making it a challenge to get through at times. Even though the place was packed the weekend we were there, it was fairly quiet and we didn't have any issues with trying to sleep or enjoying our campsite. - Phil from Akron

I guess when you are the only game in town, you can soak folks. On top of the pricey rate they charge extra for kids. $93.00 a night in the sticks is criminal. And for that you can tote your own rubbish, as they don't pick it up. They don't escort you to your site and the "store" is the most dismal excuse for a camp store. It's even dusty.
On the plus side they have good directional signage off I-77.
We had a lovely site. But as the case, a little too close. These patio sites are nice, but have a grand view of A HUGE regional landfill. The buzzards circled several times. There had to be 50 to 100 buzzards in the air.
Then there is the air. Don't know if it's there septic system or the landfill. It stunk so bad we could not enjoy the outside facilities.
The design separates seasonal and over night guest. It a pretty good design. The mini golf looks (we did not play) among the best.
A nice KOA. But the Keep on Adding on, kills the deal. - wdw

Stayed over a popular weekend, as we traveled across the country. We were told only a premium site was available when we called ahead to make reservations. A "premium" site was a narrow pull through site with roadway on both sides of us. When we pulled out our awning, it was into the roadway at the front of the motorhome so we ended up not using the awning. Restroom had a severe sewer odor the entire weekend, even after office staff was advised. The "pond" is really a water runoff collection site with unusable equipment sitting at the edge. No phone reception or internet access even though we were among the closest sites to the office. To add insult, there was a premium charge for having 2 children with us. This is not a place I would stay at again. We travel for months at a time and have done so for years. This review is not because I am overly picky! - Ms Winnie

Outstanding park with a friendly staff. Spent a month and a few days here after taking a job in Cleveland. Staff ALWAYS answered any and all of my questions. The site was level and of ample length for my 5th wheel. The negative comments of this park from 2008 & 2009 DO NOT reflect the condition of the park or the competence of the staff today. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat! - DANANDHISBETTERHALFJUDY

The people at the front desk were great, ready with any questions you might have. The laundry room was very clean and just one inside door from the office so very handy if you need change. Beautiful views of the fields all around the park. - michelle 17

Stayed here one night as a stop over for our return trip home. Pull through site was horse shoe shaped, but able to accommodate our small trailer (20ft) and F150 without unhooking. Almost level. The front of the trailer was 2 inches higher than the back per my level. Lots of seasonal campers in this campground, but very nice trailers/fifth wheels. Campground grounds are reasonably kept up and gravel drives aren't too bad. Decent water pressure and cable TV was okay in the higher channels, but not so great with the lower numbers for some reason. We had campsite 5. - Mike & Annie

This campground is under new management. The office staff was very nice but still finding their way. The new name is Timbercrest Camp and RV park. Phone number is unchanged. New website is www.timbercrestrvpark.com. It would have been nice if the grass had been mowed prior to our arrival since they knew our group had reservations. - D&K

This is a fairly well maintained campground, with friendly and helpful owners at check in.The interior roads and sites are gravel with weeds. Our pad was long and level but not overly spacious, big rig access was fair. It was very quiet at night, no privacy around our RV, but there was space for our towed. No shade trees, some grass between sites and some sites had a picnic table, ours did not. The bathrooms were old but adequate, but they did need a good clean, the so called laundry had one washer and one dryer, not enough for this size of campground, as some folk just hung their washing outside their RV's. Pet friendly but no dog walk and no doggie bags or disposal station. WiFi was worse than useless but cell was okay. There are small local food stores in Walnut Creek, as well as great restaurants and plenty of unique shops to explore. We would not stay here again, this campground is mediocre at best, it could be a great campground, but the owners need to spend time and money on it. - tobyjug

This park is in a quiet, country setting near Walnut Creek. Long straight gravel drive to park. Interior roads and site driveways are gravel. Layout works well for access with even the largest rig. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The building containing the restrooms, showers, laundry and meeting rooms appears to be very new. - eaglessoc

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

This campground is situated within the heart of the Ohio Amish Country. The owners were extremely helpful and very nice. The roads in are a bit tight and the sites are somewhat close to one another, but because there are only 50 or so sites, you don't notice the crowding. Each site shares a gray water drain with an adjoining site (It is a plastic barrel buried into the ground filled with gravel). These were extremely handy given there are no sewer hook-ups, only water and electric. Most of the sites have some shade or are fully shaded. One issue we had was that someone had pulled their tow vehicle into the campsite we were supposed to be in and the owner could not find them. They accommodated us with another campsite with no issue at all. This campground was very quiet in the evenings which was very nice. The camp store is very limited and not open on Sunday, and there are no organized activities at the camp. Enjoy the Ohio Amish stores! The campground provides free firewood in the form of woodshop castoffs. We wouldn't cook food over it since much of it has wood glue in it, but it is just fine for sitting around. - HP_Happy_Campers

Very nicely kept campground. Some people commented how quiet it is and that you can hear horse buggies pass. Not really correct on that note. You are very close to a State Road, very heavily traveled, however, that is not a reason to stop you from staying here.
Very well maintained. Sights are reasonable spaced, typical for a small private campground. They have nice fire rings at each site and free local wood for burning. Many shaded sites. Bathroom are very, very clean. I would highly recommend. - philman

The only reason I gave this park an overall 8, was because some of the sites were small. We have a 26 ft trailer, and it just fit on our site. However, there were bigger sites, but they were already occupied since we stayed Labor Day weekend. Very close to many Amish towns. Would stay here again. Owners very nice. - Susan Curto

Access to the campground was good via Rt. 241/93 off US 30. Internal park roads are paved and sites are narrow crushed stone with lovely wide areas of grass between sites. We drive a 44'MH with tow and we were able to maneuver into our site (#53) without removing the car. We were also able to exit from this site with the car attached. This section of the campground is mostly full hookup pull-thru's and it might be difficult to exit with a tow attached if one were closer to the road. The sites in this area are level with a picnic table and fire ring included on the site. The older section of the park is among old tall trees and looks lovely, although some sites appear to have a slope from back to front. The campground is peaceful and would be full of activities for families and kids during open season. We were there the last weekend they were open so the water aspects of the park were closed. The back open tent area is a lovely walk with the dog. We used the Wifi successfully without issue and our satellite worked great. We did not try the cable or restroom facilities. We would return the Baylor Beach Park if going back through this area. - LvR

Very nice park and very helpful owners. The place is huge. Lots of fun opportunities for kids to have fun. Lots of grass and plenty of space between sites. If you have a large rig, and in a pull thru, the trees are a bit overgrown at the end of the sites, so it is not possible to get out going forward, so I backed out and got back on the main road to exit. Also the Internet is strong, but keeps logging you off, about every 15 minutes or so. Had to sign back in to continue. I bit of a pain.
We stayed two nights and went into Canton twice, which was about 18 miles away. A pleasant drive through the country roads. Had to watch out for a few horse carriages! - JoeVinnie
