Well it appears our view of this "campground" is much different than the previous posts. First, the entrance of the park is not well marked and leads you to believe that you turn in just past the restaurant on the same side of the road. Well backing out a 40' FW from a small barn area is not fun only to be told the campground is further down the road on the right. Arriving there, we found a very steep slope and sharp right turn to go over to get into the campground. True there are pull throughs, but you had better watch for low hanging trees before pulling out. The sites are gravel? Well somewhat but very rutted, certainly not level. Due to a little rain the ruts were quite deep and after looking for another site, we decided this place was not for us, again having to back out to avoid trees and sharp turn. We have camped all over for 40 years and this was the second worst campground we have ever seen. There is no one on site for the CG. Apparently in order to pay, you have to unhook and go somewhere maybe the restaurant to pay. So much for wanting to stay hooked up for the night. This is a very rustic CG and is certainly not worth more than $15 but if you camp in a tent, pop up, or small trailer, it might be fine although don't think they had bathroom facilities. I really could not believe this was a Bob Evans campground, and kept looking for another one. My impression was there was one for campers when they had farm events, but I don't know, we didn't find it and was not told about it. I would just like to warn anyone with a large FW to avoid this CG like the plague. This campground is not really convenient to interstate and since there are hardly any campgrounds in this area, one is certainly needed. Too bad they don't take advantage of this and make this a destination CG. I would never go back there again and am surprised that Bob Evans' name is even on it. We camped at Bob Evans Farms Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Not fancy, but comfortable. You can even overlook the fact you are next to a State Road highway. No pads or patios. OK for one or two nights. We would stay there again. We camped at Bob Evans Farms Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here overnight in #7, the pull through. The sites are gravel pads with grass and well maintained. It is close to Hwy. 588, but was quiet at night. There are no restrooms or showers, but we didn't need them. There is a dump station across the street. I would suggest that you walk across and locate it before you take your rig over there just so you know where to go. We went through the Bob Evans museum at the farmhouse and it was interesting. They are doing construction at this time, and the restaurant was not open. It didn't say when it would open again so if you are planning on going anytime soon you might want to call and ask. If we were going to be in the area we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Bob Evans Farms Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small RV park next to Bob Evans Farms. The campground is basic with water and electric; and very near the highway so expect traffic noise. We stayed there during the Bob Evans Farm festival and it was wonderful, the staff at the farm were very accommodating to the tourists. They even brought a van around in the evening to take those of us at the campground to the hoe-down. The sites were not level, but fixable. There is 1 pull through. The road is gravel and the back-ins are gravel also. There is a dump station across the highway. Would stay there again. The small campground is beside a beautiful creek and within walking distance to the farm if you are able to do so. We loved it. We camped at Bob Evans Farms Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is a very nice little no amenities RV park. Great for overnighting or staying 2 or 3 days. The restrooms are port-a-johns. The main intent of the campground is to give visitors to the Bob Evens working farm and original restaurant, a place to stay while roaming the Ohio River historic districts and a visit to the restaurant/gift shop, craft barn and free museum. There is also an old historic re-assembled cabin city across the street from the campground. It consists of original to the area (moved) cabins and blacksmith barn. Dump available across the street. No showers are available. We would stay here again. We camped at Bob Evans Farms Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground was very nice for an overnight stop. There is a water & electric for your RV, but the campground has no showers or plumbed restrooms. There is a dump station across the road. The grass sites are very clean and we had no problem leveling our trailer. The county road nearby carries a lot of traffic, but wasn't that bad. The original Bob Evans restaurant is right down the road for great eating! This part of Ohio is beautiful and worth a drive. We camped at Bob Evans Farms Campground in a Travel Trailer.
