This park has good sites along the water (extra $). Our site was across from the water sites. The whole park is flat, sites are paved and plenty long. Even though off-season, the rangers were available on the weekend and during the week, the VIP's (volunteer in park) were there. This park is one of the better state parks in Ohio. Great place for biking since it is so flat. Lots of places to fish from the shore. The check-in station has minimal supplies but there is a bait store a mile away. Two new dump stations were put in a couple years ago. The restrooms and showers are decent. The showers could use some updating. There is a new shower house on the far end of the campground, but doesn't look very clean. We will definitely visit this park again.
Picked a site on the top tier overlooking the lake. Some sites longer that others and they have extended a few. The showers, as usual, are not maintained very well. Don't think they were cleaned during our 4 day visit. There is Wi-Fi at the very well stocked camp store. This is a good location for visiting the Longaberger Basket Factory and Homestead.
We stayed 2 nights in a full service site between a couple regulars. We arrived after the office closed. The owner left a map and had someone lead us to our site. The cable TV was a nice treat. There was a playground and a fishing pond. The sites (electric only) on the hill had more room between them. This is a convenient location just off I-65. Good for over nigh or maybe longer if with children.
Our site was for electric only. Full service sites were $32. My husband qualified for lifetime "Golden Age Passport" card. The card was $10 and saved us $6 per night. The sites are all gravel, level pads and most have 4x4 edging. Lots of shade. Some sites closer together than others. Don't care for the concrete, non-movable picnic tables. The small shower buildings are old and really need replacing. They look about the same as years ago. The larger shower house is better but farther away. There is no WI-FI available. Have to drive to McDonald's in Dover. There is only one dump station. There is a camp store, but I didn't check it out. Will stay again when in the area.
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.
This is a great place to use as a base camp or overnight. We have stayed here in the past since it has easy access to I-65. All sites are flat and gravel. A few small trees in between some sites. The road noise is not too bad. We were given a senior's discount. The pull-thru sites are long and level enough we didn't have to unhook our truck. The entrance to the park is somewhat hard to find, especially in the dark. I didn't use the showers this time, but have in the past and they are excellent. We will definitely stay here again when traveling I-65.
We wanted a campground on the river and found this one in the TrailerLife Directory. The reviews on this website looked good. This is a Good Sam park with 10% discount for members. The owner led us to our site and allowed us to pull in so our front window faced the river. There was enough room to pull the truck around and park in back. The owner moved the fire pit to a better location and trimmed branches that were touching our camper. These owners have been there 5 years and made many improvements. I didn't use the showers but checked and they were very clean. There is Wi-Fi available near the office. Laundry is available also. There is no store, just ice and firewood. The river view, sunsets, and barge watching was great. There are seasonal campers, but with nice campsites. Yes, the narrow bridge coming in isn't fun, but manageable. Visited the Quilt Museum in Paducah. Worth the trip. I will definitely visit this campground again.
