“Quiet state park - 1/2 site with electric - Mtn. Biking - disc golf”
Reviewed Apr 04, 2015
Been going here for 25 years, mostly in the spring and fall. About 100 sites now have electric service as of about 5 years ago, with plans to add more in the future. The mountain biking trail is an easy 7-8 mile loop, but should be avoided in the wet season. The disc golf had the full 18 holes finished about 2 years ago. Still work in progress, and can be muddy at times. Hiking trails are nice, except in the wet spring. The park has been trying to catch up in long overdue projects. They just finished a new water treatment project, nearly new pavilion. The activities / nature center burned down two years ago. Plans are for fixing that. The beach is nice crescent moon shaped. In season they have a watercraft rental there at the beach. The lake is about 100 acres or less. For the most part the campsites are solid gravel back in type. Most are shade or part shade. It's a mixed of hardwoods and pine forest.Be forewarned, 1000+ Ash trees have been removed because of the Ash tree bug. Most sites will accommodate RV's under 35' with a few for big 40' rigs. There are two shower buildings, usually one will open the first week in April. The RV dump station is fairly new. There are two fresh water fill faucets there, but many times they are out of order. There are other water outlets about every 20 campsites. If arriving in the off season and the main water supply is not turned, go to the east side of the maintenance garage where there is a frost-proof water faucet. The maintenance garage is about 3/4 before the campground. All park roads are paved.
Campground is located about 1 mile south of Wellington which has a few places to eat, two grocery stores, very large hardware store. Findley is about 30 minutes from two freeways, so it doesn't get filled much during the midweek. The park staff do have a number of planned weekend events that keeps the campground filled in the electric section. Seems to be a lot of "regular" campers that know each other there week to week.
Good TV station access with antenna (35+ stations). Many tall trees will hamper getting satellite.
Negatives would be shower buildings kind of outdated. The hiking trails have many drainage issues during the wet spells. Positives: New sewage plant, new water fountains, newer playground, pavilion, disc golf.
