Second stay here. The RR were great. Always clean. Quiet most of the time. Used the park as a base for biking in the NP north of Akron. Mainly a boating SP. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

check out the A&W root beer stands...... hadn't done that for 50+ years.

Bike & ride in the near by NP was a good value.

Nice park with lots to do. Park was laid out by the US Army Corps of Engineers so lots of space between sites, but as the park has been around for sometime roads can be narrow and backing into some spots with a larger rig can present a challenge. Staff is very helpful. We had a 'beach' area very close to our site and we were able to launch our kayaks in a little cove right behind our site. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you just want to stay in the park, fine, but park is very close to other activities including the Aurora Outlets, lots of shopping.

Great area if you have a boat, kayak or canoe.

The park campground is kept clean and rules are enforced enough to ensure a pleasant experience for everyone. There is no swimming pool, but there is a small beach available at the campground, and a larger beach within the park. The showers and laundry facilities are kept clean and in good condition. We have already made reservations to stay here again. I only wish there were more full hookup sites available, as we had to use an electric-only site. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is geared toward quiet and nature. Fishing and "no HP limit" boating are excellent. The small town of Ravenna is only a few minutes away with a few dining and shopping choices, but if you want more you will have to drive about an hour to Akron, where there are many choices.

Nice state park with good paved sites. Overall this park was manicured to perfection. (Great job, workers.) We had 50 amp only with no water or sewer. There is water and a dump station available if needed. Our RV is 40' long. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

Great state park - clean, level sites, all kinds of room and privacy. Park was 95% full yet felt like you were alone. Great bath house, nice playground. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We spent a lot of time at Westbranch. The sites are nice although they are not very level. There is privacy between most sites. The bathrooms are excellent and are well maintained. The camp store has basic essentials. There are weekend movies and ice cream socials. The utilities work well and are 30/50 amp. My AT&T cell service works well at most sites. Our biggest complaint; however, is that it is very difficult to get a spot. Reservations can be made six months in advance. It is nearly impossible to get a spot for a holiday weekend. This frustration has led us to searching out other Ohio State parks. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

One of Ohio's best state parks. The bathrooms are the cleanest I've seen anywhere in the country. The park is laid out well. All sites are blacktop. There is a small store on site, a nice playground, a boat ramp, and a small beach area. I would give this park a ten, but it's very hard to get in here. If you try to reserve a spot six months in advance, you better be on the phone at the stroke of midnight or you will be out of luck. Weekday stays are much easier to achieve. This isn't a fault of the park. In fact it's a testament to how nice Westbranch truly is. It's just frustrating that the park fills so quickly. Some spots are better than others. My favorite electric-only sites are 1 or 2. If you like the sun, site 15 and 55. If you like a view of the lake while being in the shade, site 87 or 93 and if you want a pull thru FHU sites 105-109. The camper hosts are friendly and approachable. Nice park! We camped at West Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice wooded campground with spacious sites, some of which were on the lake (though no direct access to lake on most because of cliffs). Stayed in a back-in full hook-up site, but would choose a pull-through site next time due to short length of cement pad for both trailer and vehicle. Low water pressure for the 5 days we were there. Peaceful campground but not a lot to do for children. There is a small beach area and 1 playground near office. The restroom/shower buildings were the nicest I have even seen--modern, spacious, had a foyer with washers & dryers, section for books to borrow, individual showers and very spacious bathroom stalls, plus stainless steel sinks and benches outside. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Really nice wooded park on Army Corps of Engineers reservoir. For our motorhome, we found paved sites challengingly narrow and sloped. Utility connections were easy, water pressure was poor. Park management has some personnel issues that put us in a site that was already booked for part of the week we planned to stay. We camped in the full hookup area.

Spent this past weekend here at West Branch, and made reservations to come back in 2 weeks. This place is PERFECT in every way! If you're a freak about clean bathrooms, you will never be disappointed in West Branch State Park! Clean bathrooms, clean showers with 'real' faucets. (Not the push button all the time kind!) Currently the water is WAY, WAY down due to the summer drought, so lake view sites take a bit of navigation to get down to the lake. Just don't want anyone thinking you'll be 'right on the water' when camping on the water front sites. Still, can't beat listening to the boats and jet skis on the weekend in the summer. The staff is friendly, the lawn is mowed often, the campfire pits are cleaned out after every checkout. There isn't a 'bad' site in the park, there are just more desirable ones than others. We camped on #27 which was right on a corner and in the direct sun all day, but you get what you get when you make reservations late. Yet, we were an easy walk to the playground and bath house. This park is about 30 minutes from my house but seems worlds away! It's an excellent park: and this time we camped, Ranger Rick didn't yell at us because our 1 vehicle tire was 1/2 an inch on the grass like last time we were here. Every site is Dog Friendly. I have dogs (just didn't bring them this trip) and love dogs, but people who let their dogs bark non-stop at 7am should be removed from the park. Not everyone gets up at the crack of dawn when they go camping, and if I do, I bring an alarm clock and not rely on someone's dog to wake me up. The park is wonderful, sometimes people are just rude and don't think of others around them. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Tent Trailer.

One of the finest campgrounds around. Impeccably manicured and clean. Restrooms and showers are the best we have seen all year at any campground, let alone a state park. Most sites have a natural barrier providing privacy. Most pads are asphalt and level, although there is some sloping front to back on the sites around the lake. Unfortunately, due to the severe drought conditions this summer, the lake was low and the water was a bit on the slimy side due to increased algae growth. We chose not to swim at the small campground beach due to this. Christmas in July celebration was very fun and the kids in the campground all got a visit from Santa. A wonderful experience. We will most definitely return. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

Terrific state park. Gorgeous lake views from many sites. Sites have plenty of space and vegetation around to feel private. Showerhouse (including laundry) was top notch--better than a lot of commercial campgrounds and certainly head and shoulders above other states' parks. Very friendly staff. Pretty easy to stay in as an overnighter, too. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds and state park facilities in NE Ohio. The rest rooms and shower facilities are very modern, clean and well kept by the VIP people at the park. There is a large playground at the center of the park for the kids and they usually have activities for the kids on Saturday's. My only issue with this park is there are some sites that are not conducive to larger trailers and motor homes so if you are not familiar with the park, I'd suggest you call and ask the desk for details on the site so they can help guide you along. The reservation web site for Ohio state parks is not as reliable as it should be and we've been stuck with some pretty bad sites in the past. But there are plenty of sites that back up to the lake. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Travel Trailer.
