16 Parks near New Philadelphia, Ohio

There is no selection for my camper. It is an A-liner popup.
This park is very uphill. This means a fantastic view of the lake and surrounding hills. The flip side of this is a lot of exercise, some strenuous if you don't have some kind of transportation outside of your TV. There are of course gulf carts available for a fee.
If you don't want to cook you can go to the concession stand. Decent food reasonable prices. Loud music to go with that. Friendly staff too.
You may have noticed the comments about the tight turns. They are true, the camp provides assistance. We were guided by one of the staff who said he was one of the owners and he was very helpful.
One thing don't forget;
Silly me forgot to mention to the check in girl that we were G.S. card holders which would have reduced the cost of the campsite cost 10% This was the only thing that I would wish they might instruct their staff to ask as a small courtesy. - NanCas

This is a well run park with many activities available. The main downfall for larger units are the narrow roads and steep hills. Much of this park is built on the side of a hill and the narrow roads and tight turns make for a harrowing experience. Once at our site we had a lovely, large and paved pull-thru with a beautiful view. We were in a 39ft motorhome and towing. We had just inches to spare on the turns and we would not recommend any thing larger. In fact, we would not try it again. Our other complaint was the wi-fi, which is offered through an outside vendor for a fee. We were never able to get connected and finally received our money back. For those with smaller units, this is a very nice park. Because of the turns and steep hills, we would not stay here again. - atwig

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

Atwood is an older park and the sites were perpendicular to the road. This makes it hard to maneuver with a 35'. Our group was in section B on sites 308-311. All sites were shady. Water is available on site 310. The roads are very narrow. We saw the Rangers frequently during the day.
The sites across from us had more than 10 cars on six sites. This made for a roudy group and there were no rangers in site at night. The noise went on until 1:30 am. Very discouraging! Hopefully this was a fluke and not the norm. - Tammy7

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

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

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

This is a great little park in a Amish country setting. A little off beaten path. Close to Amish Villages. very Quiet. Friendly Stayed here twice this summer. Back in sites have shade. Pull thru sites long enough for large rigs. - go00nascar

Visited friends who were staying there, thinking about moving there, but soon changed our minds. The place was very unkept, up on a hill, dry, desert looking. No shade trees, very plain. They did have restroom facilities which is a plus especially when you have friends stop by. They should plan an improvement every year, pads, patios, trees, etc. which would help a lot. I will add the staff was very friendly. - H Russell

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 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

It may be unfair to review, as we didn't "stay" here, but the place was so small we didn't feel comfortable backing our 31ft travel trailer into a spot. Arrived after hours. Back of trailer scraped ground exiting park due to steep driveway. - The Rascal Range

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

We picked up our new 5th wheel nearby and they gave us a huge pull through site so that we had room for our rig, truck and U-Haul. We stayed for 3 days. Sites on the hill (50 and up) are best for big rigs, but all sites are nice, graveled, level with large area of grass in between. The water park and campground close the last week of August which was perfect for us. We rode our bikes all over the farm, ran our dogs and enjoyed the company of only a few other rigs. All buildings and grounds were clean and well kept. It is on the edge of the Amish country so be careful to share the road with the carriages and people walking. - Traveler Anne

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

We were very impressed with this campground. The owners obviously take pride in their business. The lots are spacious and there is a lot of grassy area at each site. They even offer free firewood to use in the fire ring. After staying in a state park in West Virginia last night that was very much downhill, it was wonderful to have a level site. We were in site 120. It's also very close to all the tourist stuff. They don't have cable, but there are a few "air" channels you can receive. - jconnally

Nice park that is convenient to Berlin and the local Amish farms/activities. Slight hill coming into the park. There are several sections of the park; two of the sections are spots 37 - 67 being a large packed gravel lot (with full hookups) and then spots 1 - 26 being large gravel lots surrounded by grass. We were in spot 3, a back-in site that had plenty of room for both the toad and our 40' class A. Ample space between sites. The owners obviously take a lot of pride in their campground; very clean and well taken care of.
Nice folks at check-in. They also provide free firewood for use in the fire ring. Plenty of room at the checkin office to disconnect the toad if needed before you proceed to your site.
Free wifi that worked well. Verizon coverage was very good. We were also able to get Satellite reception at our lot. Regarding electrical hookups, we shared a common electrical box with the site next to us. It had one 30 amp receptacle and one 50 amp receptacle. Fortunately, the person next to us only needed 30 amps.
Be very careful about departing; there is a blind intersection at the top of the hill on the corner of HWY 39 and 367. - Maddog11

Ample parking for multiple rvs during check-in. Very friendly lady checked us in and suggested some local attractions. Campground is mostly gravel with not much in the way of shade or landscaping. Not very scenic at all. Although there's a clear view of the high school across the street. Wide gravel road made backing into our site a breeze. Electricity was 121 volts and water was 40 psi. Wifi signal surprisingly strong. Unable to get any over-the-air tv channels. Good location for visiting many Amish attractions. Getting back onto Rt 39 can be tricky due to heavy traffic and a blind hill. - The Other John Doe
