We spent one night here and were satisfied with the site. It was plenty long enough for our 40' fifth-wheel and extended cab pickup without unhooking. The site was gravel/grass and fairly level. We arrived after the office was closed so had no interaction with staff. When we called in for reservations, we were told in no uncertain terms that they would charge our card immediately and there was absolutely no refunds. There was no Cable TV but we were able to pull in quite a few channels with the antenna. All hook-ups worked well. There were quite a few permanent sites but they were well-maintained and neat. We would stay here again if back in the area. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, well-maintained campground. The pull-thru site was more than sufficient for our 39' fifth wheel and our long bed crew cab truck. The site was a little unlevel. Some of the sewer connections were too high, about 10" which could make it difficult to dump tanks. The campground has mostly seasonal RV's so there are plenty of amenities for kids. The transient section is fair large. Restrooms were very clean. Although the park is close to the highway, it's surrounded by lots of trees and is quiet. No discounts given for a one night stay. This was our second stay at this park. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:
Neither our GPS nor Google Maps had accurate directions to the campground entrance. It is located on Wilmington Road east of I-71 about 1/2 mile on the right.
Stayed here 15 nights while visiting family. Easy on and off I-71. Very clean, quiet campground. Lots of seasonal sites, but very well-kept. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice playground. Lots of trees and nice area to walk. Big rig friendly. We had a pull-through which was a little unlevel, but not unmanageable. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Travel Trailer.
A nice enough campground with plenty of trees and large playground area for the kids. Most sites are level and spacious. Unfortunately we were placed on site 46, narrow and wet. Staff cannot control the rain but when you check in on a Tuesday and staying 5 nights and the park is almost empty you think they would give you a site you can enjoy. The small grass area was swamp our whole stay; there was no area where we could set out our lawn chairs. The fire pit was under water because rain drained to our site and flooded us. We made our reservations several weeks ago and should have been given a site better than this, campers that came for the weekend only were treated with better accommodations.

We stayed one night. When we got there they put us in the site that we reserved but it was for a 50 amp trailer when I told them that we needed 30 amp when we made the reservation. They gave us a site that we barely fit on with our trailer and truck which was 33 feet. Bathrooms were clean but we needed a code to get into them and they gave the wrong number for the woman's bath. The bath houses are old and need updating with very little room to change your clothes without opening the door to put your clothes on. We were there for one night but would not stay there again.

We "stumbled" upon this park on our way from Cleveland to Cincinnati. What a great place! Yes some of the sites were un-level and we did have one of those but chose it because of the larger yard area it had...isn't that what blocks are for? This is a beautiful well kept park. The trees are so nice and the upkeep of the park is exceptional. Our kids absolutely loved the HUGE playground and we have to say it is probably the best playground we have seen at a campground. It is very convenient to local attractions and very easy to find. If we go back to the area we will be staying at Olive Branch! We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Motorhome.
Park is relatively close to I-71, but no road noise. Approximately 8 miles east of Kings Island amusement park, campground is occupied by many seasonal campers that need to clean up around their sites. There are quite a few pull-through sites occupied by short term campers, however nearly all the pull-through sites are extremely unlevel front to back. We saw several motorhomes with their front wheels off the ground in an attempt to level. The 50 amp service did not work at our assigned site. We reported it to the office and offered to move to another site as there were many vacant, but were told to stay at the current site. The service was fixed when a person arrived that we believe was the owner, and he replaced the circuit breaker. He was quite rude and made us feel as though we were inconveniencing him. Very early the next morning, 5:30 AM, we were abruptly awakened by very loud crashing sounds of the campground dumpsters being emptied. Be aware that if you have made a reservation and need to cancel, the campground will not refund anything regardless of circumstances. There were way to many things wrong with this park to get us to ever consider a return visit. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Motorhome.

Large and quiet RV park with a wide variety of sites. The pull-thrus nearest the entrance are spacious and quite nice, as are some of the older sites overlooking their pond. Because of the Columbus Day three day holiday, we were assigned to a back-in, and next to us was a mildewed old fifth wheel which was sinking into the mud, an old wreck. Very large play area for kids, nice laundry facilities, good Wi-Fi, good 4G Verizon data reception and okay 2G T-Mobile reception. Charming Lebanon is not far away.

We stayed here for one night for a quick get away, since we live only 45 minutes away. The drive into the park was beautiful. Our site was shady and level. The playground was very nice, as was the camp store. The Wi-Fi worked well for us, too. It was a very peaceful stay and we would definitely stay here again. We also ordered dinner (pizza) from a local restaurant that delivers to the campground. It was delicious and convenient. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Motorhome.
Great park. We were only here over night and had reserved a pull through site. Upon arrival we were escorted to our site and there was someone in it. Had a mix up at the ,office. No more pull through sites. Too late to keep traveling so we unhooked and got into a back in. Owner was very apologetic and gave us refund for night. So price reflected is their rate, we paid nothing. Beautiful grounds on the campground and huge area for kids to play. Had we known how nice it was, we would have planned to stay longer. Only reason did not give 10 was that we were not here long enough to use the pool and other facilities. Highly recommend and would certainly go back and stay again.

Reading all the other comments about this camp site makes me wonder what "camping" means to them. First, I will say the positives. The grounds were well kept and the owners where friendly. However, we were told we would have a site that was next to a camp site that the lady was never there and would not be around anyone. Well, apparently camp sites in Ohio must be used to having 100+ campers piled on top of one another because even though that one lady was not there the four other campers crammed all around our camper at a distance of about 7 feet did not count as "close around". That is not camping that is worse than a trailer park. The other thing was the one shower house had massive water temperature issues. It would literally swing from freezing cold to burning hot and back again every few seconds. The only reason I give it a middle of the road rating is because of the grounds, nice owners, and closeness to Kings Island. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice campground, easy to find off I-71. Well kept roads and sites. No TV hookups, but a variety of shaded and open spaces. Makes satellite possible. Very clean and well kept. Gravel, level sites. Another reviewer said neighbors were "7 feet apart", but in my opinion, the sites are no closer together than in most other campgrounds. We had no noise or intrusions issues at all with our neighbors. I will definitely stay here again. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped here for four nights so we could spend time with my brother's family who live nearby. Found that this campground was conveniently located, had good facilities: pool, very clean shower rooms, large playground and large grass play field. Very quiet, since it is a fair distance from the interstate, with a large forest separating the interstate from the campground. Lots of campground roads for walking our dog. The sites are not any closer than other private campgrounds. The reviewer who complained about close quarters needs to camp in state parks with no hookups if he wants large, separated camp sites. Did have problems with the free Wi-Fi. Did not work for 3 of the 4 days. Will stay here in the future when visiting my brother. Only complaint that I have is the posted 5 mph speed limit on the long entrance drive (1/2 mile). 10 mph would be more realistic. 5 mph is good internal to the campground sites, but on the long entrance drive with no camp sites one has to drive in second gear to maintain 5 mph.

This is a well kept RV park in a great wooded area, close to I-71, but with all the forest and the distance that the park is from the highway, you couldn’t hear a thing. The roads and sites are all well graveled, the sites are fairly level and very wide giving you lots of room for sitting out. All sites have a picnic table and fire ring. We have a long 5th wheel, 41+ft and we fit into the site with room to spare for the truck to park behind the rig. A joy not having to fight to squeeze a 20ft truck with a shoe horn. Water pressure was excellent, and a good thing too that I had just bought a replacement pressure regulator. Although the Wi-Fi is free, where we were parked just down the road from the office, even with a signal booster with an antenna on the roof, the signal was too low for a connection. The owners make no apologies for the poor service. The RV park has a little pond that is stocked with fish, but with the low water levels this year, not sure how well the fish were doing. The pond has a nice wooded/grassy area on one side for walking. It is also a nice walk along the entrance way to Wilmington Road and then along the road. On one walk, we got a fleeting glance of a deer jumping across the entrance road (the dogs wanted to take chase). The park is close to a number of interesting sites, Caesar Creek State Park and Pioneer Village, Fort Ancient State Park, Camp Kern Ozone Zipline tree canopy tours. If in the area again, we will definitely stay here again. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
Our entire experience with this campground was less than positive. When I called to get the reservation, the lady answering the phone didn't even know what time zone she was in. She said she was in "daylight savings" time zone. That put up a red flag that maybe these people were less than swift. I told her we were going to be a late arrival and that I felt sure no one would be in the office. She said that was probably right, but that she stayed up late and would come help us find our site. I asked if we would get a confirmation email about our reservation and was told that it wouldn't be necessary. She gave us our site assignment on the phone. We did arrive late. There was very little light to help us find our site. No one came to help us navigate. And to top it off, the site she assigned us was already filled by someone else. Between a stupidly placed wooden pole and a large pickup truck parked in the road, it was very difficult to get backed into the next empty site we could find. In the light of day, it looked like we'd been assigned to the part of the campground where the permanent residents live. The entrance road was the only thing this campground had going for it in my estimation. We were charged more than the price quoted on the phone, and we didn't get the site we were promised. I would only camp here again under duress. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Travel Trailer.
