Site 268. We enjoyed our site location. Sad the ash trees were cut down. Lots of sun during the day. We did however take issue with the bathrooms. Being a state park we expected better but were sadly disappointed. Very old and rusty shower facilities. Unusable in our option. A beautiful park that has so much to offer should spend some money on upgrading the amenities. Just our opinion. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We originally booked site 164 but when we arrived we found a large mud hole covering the left side of the site (camper door side). It had rined the day before. Moved to site 189. Most of the sites are large enough, but there are very few trees. Sites are lined up like piano keys; none have a view of the lake. Bathrooms really need updating. The showers have metal dividers that have rusted at the bottom. This CG is good for a stopover, but not as a destination campsite. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here during spring break 2016. This is a big beautiful park and the sites are well spaced. The roads were wide and easy to navigate. The grounds were well maintained and the site was perfectly level. There was no potable water at the dump station but that may have been due to the early season. But there was a water hookup near our site but we didn't use it assuming there would be water at the dump station. We were able to check out a few of the well marked hiking trails. We stayed here since it was a reasonable distance from the National Air museum. We would stay here again. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

National Air Museum is about 20-30 minutes away. Definitely worth a visit. Museum is free and covers flight history from the Wright brothers to the present.

Nice spacious sites. Sadly, part of the park has been affected by the ash borer and trees are sparse. The south side of the park looks drastically different because it still has its trees. Bathrooms/showers clean but in need of significant updating. Our stay was very pleasant and this State Park makes our "Worth a 2nd visit" list. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lots to do locally...if you are willing to drive a little bit. We went to Clifton's Mill for lunch, visited the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Springfield, went to the Caesar Creek Flea Market (Sat), and visited Xenia.

We stayed here for 2 nights in an RV. The park has lots of space between sites, which we loved. Hiking trails and paved roads throughout for the kids to ride their bikes on. They do not have much of a store - no firewood is sold there, so make sure to get some before entering the campground. I did not go in the bathhouses but my kids checked them out and wouldn't use them. Very relaxing place to stay overall! We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Being so close to our home, this is our 'go to' place for a quick weekend trip. We don't use the beach/lake area; however, it seems to be quite popular. We love to ride our bicycles and run...this campground is perfect for both with the nicely paved (and wide) roads. Also several well-maintained hiking trails.

There are three full-hookup sites. We've stayed at one of these sites twice and they're certainly ideal for campers with large families requiring unlimited water/sewer usage. Being just the two of us, we actually prefer one of the more private (and wooded) sites toward the back of the campground. Our favorite spring and fall site is 115 - though the lack of shade doesn't make it great for a summer stay. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for two nights and despite the large number of reservations, there were not that many other campers in the park. The facilities were well used and showing their age, but mostly clean. Our electrical hookup had some issue – one half of the 15amp duplex outlet was damaged (not uncommon I suppose) but the other worked just fine. In the past, the park has had issues with power supply, especially during the hotter months of the year, but they recently removed electrical service from a number of sites and improved the wiring – we had no issues at all with it while we were there. The grass around our spot was well maintained (not too tall, etc.) and there was a decent amount of space between us and our neighbors, although there was nothing to block the view between spots (not that big of a deal to us, but some people don’t like that.) There was also plenty of room to setup equipment on either side of the space, play games, etc. The fire pit was in good shape and was not overly filled with trash or ashes from previous campers. The parking space, as well as the park roads, well paved, but were showing a good deal of use (and abuse), although nothing that would cause an issue – no potholes, etc., just a lot of cracks and rough edges. Ours was completely level, which was nice, and from what I could see all the others were like this as well. All of the spots where we were were were pull in – back out, but there could be pull-through spots elsewhere in another loop. We did not have an issue with this since our camper is a van conversion and fairly easy to maneuver. The bathrooms were clean and in reasonably good condition, although the showers looked fairly old and were showing a lot of rust in places. The bathroom nearest us had a fair number of facilities (showers, toilets, sinks, etc.) but I can see people queuing up if the park were full. The park sold wood, but we did not buy any so I’m not certain how much they charged. There were numerous locations to get water (but no hook-ups in our loop), to manually dump waste water (buckets, etc.) and trash. The staff were all friendly and courteous at all times and we never saw any trash or litter of any kind on the ground while we were there, in any part of the park, but we never saw more than two park employees the whole time (and no camp host.) There were some small trails between the loops and a short trail that led to a large lake (the main attraction in this area), but little else to do in the park itself. We did visit a nearby park to do some hiking (Caesar Creek Gorge) and there is a very quaint little town just down the road from the park that is well worth a visit. If you like to bicycle there is a rails-to-trails path just outside the park that is also very, very nice. We enjoyed our stay, but I’m not sure if this is a park that we would go back to unless it was along our path on a longer trip and we just needed to stay overnight.

This was our second weekend trip out, and we wanted to go somewhere close by. We live in Florence, KY and this was an easy drive up 71 to Waynesville, OH. Although the middle of April, the weather was still cold and breezy, so there were not many campers in this HUGE campground. Our site (#89) we thought was perfect, and there was enough space for several more campers between ours site and our friends who stayed at #88. The site was fairly level and had a view of the lake. A short hike down a trail directly behind us brought you to the lake shore. The ground was wet and muddy from lots of recent rain but hard enough that it wasn’t mucky. Nice grass at the sites too. Checking in was fine. There were very few campers this weekend, but we still had to wait for the dumping station at checkout time. I can’t imagine the lines when that place is full (only 2 stations for 289 campsites). No places for trash that we could find anywhere on the grounds, and we drove around looking, so we ended up having to haul our trash home. Bathrooms were clean, but not heated, and the shower house was open on the ladies side, but not the men’s. I did not shower there due to the cold temps, and no heat in the restrooms, so I cannot comment on the water temp. Our friends inquired about a later checkout but the staff declined (several times). We thought this was silly since there were so few campers, and really, although they said they required the “cleanup” time, we found some trash on most of the empty sites. After a short drive, we had an interesting time checking out the Pioneer Village (recommended) which sadly was not yet open, but there were people there getting ready for the season, dressed in historic garb. Once gracious couple invited us into their period home-built in 1814. Another “indentured servant” explained details about her historic home, and how it was used as part of the Underground Railroad. The volunteers can “live” in these historic homes as care takers for up to 1 week and they learn about the home’s history to share with visitors. The Nature Center was very accommodating as well. We hiked to the Horseshoe Falls and Crawdad Falls and found the trails to be very easy. We also stopped by the Visitor’s Center (make sure you do). It was lovely, set up like a small museum, and had very nice staff and very clean restrooms. There are hiking trails everywhere but sadly, when you must pull out by 1:00, there are not a lot of options for parking with a trailer behind you. We really wanted to enjoy the rest of the day there, but were limited. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Pretty spartan for almost $30 per night. Water is shared at a stake, no sewage sites, and electric only. Camp hosts were friendly, sites were large, restrooms were clean as was the rest of the campground. Staying after Labor Day will mean not seeing any staff per se, no amenities here, just a place to park your rig and rough it. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have visited this park in the past but the first time with our 32 ft trailer. All sites are paved but too short for longer trailers and motorhomes. Vehicles have to park across the end of the pad or in the grass. Lots of grass in the park and very few trees. Most sites in the sun. The showers are very small and the maintenance is very disappointing. There was no one in the check-in station for 3 days. We paid upon leaving. Didn't see a ranger or VIP (volunteer in park) during our 2 day stay. This is a good location when visiting the Sauerkraut Festival in Waynesville. When they make some improvement in the showers and extent the site pads (they have the room to do it), we might return. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This campground is very large & could be so much better! The sites are very nice although shade is hard to find in some loops. The bath houses are outdated & were not cleaned while we were there. Only one shower stall in women's worked (by site 145) & it was scalding water only. There are @ 3 water fill up points per loop which makes it easy to fill your tanks. The grounds were well kept, playgrounds left much to be desired. Movies were played at dusk in the amphitheater & were somewhat family oriented (Old Dogs- new release). The beach looked awful, it could've been due to recent rains but doubtful due to other maintenance issues. Sad thing is that there was a lot of things to do in the area & the campground could make a killing if they'd add water to sites & charge more. This would help pay for the updates needed. Will probably not come back. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great park to go and relax, nothing fancy. They have movies on the weekends for the kids. We enjoyed the beach. The restrooms are not that great, but it's a state park. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We stayed here for two nights on site #55. The site was large, little shade which is common in this campground but the sites were level. Our site was nice because there was no other site on one side of us. We found that this was a really quiet campground though all the sites were full the first night. There are several hiking trails that wind in and around the campground itself. You could hear a few boats now and then but we were situated far enough away that this was never an issue. The shower house restroom at our end of the park was older and not very clean. There were two showers per men and women sides but there was never enough hot water. We all tried to time our showers around the crowds however all five of us ended up with a freezing cold shower. The cleanliness of the restroom/shower left a lot to be desired. Someone had been sick in the ladies side and supposedly they cleaned it but the smell afterwards even a day later told me that it wasn't cleaned well and we avoided using that stall. If they would upgrade the shower houses and keep them cleaner, we would stay here again. We camped at Caesar Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Campsites were huge and well spaced apart. We stayed Sun-Tuesday, so it was almost empty. Restrooms and showers were good. Only downsides: (1) The raccoons. They were way to friendly, were under the camper, next to us by the fire, etc. Many, many of them and they were not afraid to climb on and around our stuff. (2) Gate is open all night, and had a couple of trucks full of locals come speeding into the campground one night and hang out in an unoccupied loop. We'll go back to this campground next year!
