“Great eastern woodlands camping. ”

Reviewed Sep 05, 2018

Overall Rating

Nice wooded camp grounds. It is the very first State Park Campgrounds in Ohio. Quiet and peaceful. Make sure to go visit the Moonville tunnel close to there. Not the best campgrounds for big rigs. They shower houses could use some updates. Pit toilets in the middle camping spots. Flush toilets at both ends near shower house.

“Favorite local camp spot ”

Reviewed Apr 11, 2018

Overall Rating

I did not spend 28 days here in a row but have stayed here between 28-34 nights here in my life as an estimate, starting in 1994 - including spending Christmas Eve camping here several times. Most of the complaints and low ratings are due to people coming in with RV’s and i agree that would be a challenge but tent camping is plentiful ... more

“Tight sites!”

Reviewed Aug 01, 2017

Overall Rating

Extremely narrow roads, rough time backing in 23' camper. Some spots a little easier. Most sites not close to level. Very little room to sit out and enjoy the wooded area.

Camping pads too small, no good place to park tow vehicle. Very unlevel pads. Roads thru campground narrow, and edge drop-off in spots would do serious damage.

“Hilly, tight campground”

Reviewed Dec 25, 2015

Overall Rating

We did not stay here, just a drive-thru. First thing I notice is how tight and narrow the campground roads are. Very hilly, with many sites that would be hard to turn into. I noticed on many of the sites, the asphalt was so thick, old and built-up, there was a 12" drop off on the downhill edge of the narrow pad. If you have a larg... more
