This park is a gem. Good Wi-Fi and cell phone service in campground area, beautiful scenery, top notch trout fishing. Facilities are good - clean and plenty of hot water. Laundry available - machines work well, unlike some state parks. The only real cons are no water/sewer hookups. Plenty of electric - mostly 30 amp but all water is community with several spigots throughout campground. Dump station is easily accessible but during busy times there is usually a line. Wildlife is a little too tame here IMHO - especially the smaller critters. Staff is super friendly, camp hosts wonderful. Big bonus - there is a wood lot for basics (wood, ice) right in campground with good hours. Main lodge has decent restaurant but not stellar. Old grain mill tour very interesting. Long-timers tell stories of pretty frequent flooding, so beware in spring. Surrounding area is gorgeous and the drive into closest towns (Salem for Walmart or Licking for other) is breathtaking. All in all though, the whole family loves this park. Can't wait to come back with the big 5th Wheel.

We stayed on the horse campground side so there are community water spigots, vault toilets and 30 amp max only. But it is gorgeous and peaceful and private. Be careful picking a site near campers with horses (our neighbors had smelly ones and didn't compost cover their poop!) but such a cool campground. I'd be hard pressed to recall any more beautiful in late October. Definitely gave that deep woods camping feel. Nature at its best! For those looking for more amenities I hear the main campground is awesome but they are pretty much always booked up so reservations or early arrivals a must.

Very family friendly park. Both weekends we were there they had huge campground activities for Halloween on the Saturday nights. Campground is easily perused from any location for keeping an eye on the kids. Only real downside is the large shedding of black walnuts that time of year - loud and can hit you in the head! But a little free added adventure I suppose! Wifi is horrible. They use the lowest available service and when campground is full - good luck... Restrooms are basic but clean and easily accessible from most spots. Trails are abundant and there's one for all skill levels. Word to the wise, area is very hilly and campground is deep into the park. Wildlife is also abundant but still relatively timid so we didn't have any problems but some great observation opportunities.

We stayed in the recently added addition that is just outside of the casino entrance. Sites have water and all electric services on this side. There was plenty of space. You must have your Q card (free from casino) first before registering at the Q Gas station by entrance for getting your free night. BTW we also got a free buffet for registering. Good security, quiet enough. No restrooms - must use your camper but dump station is free and easy to use at second right in the lot. Truckers can park closer to convenience store for facilities. Wifi is available on the new side but you must get the username and password when registering - it gets generated when they input your info in and can't be retrieved if they forget to give it to you. Only downside is staff at Q store are relatively rude and unhelpful (or maybe just not graced with an abundance of intelligence) but you only deal with them for 5 minutes. Rates are $25 per night thereafter on bronze card, but if you have a silver or gold you get three free nights. Space available they told me a spouse can use their card for a second night but we didn't need it. Great, great alternative to boon-docking with a little entertainment on the side if desired.
