“Nice Hidden Gem”

Reviewed Jul 13, 2018

Overall Rating

We have camped here for the last 4 years, several times a season. The campground is part of Wayne National Forest. There are roughly 18 electric sites and 4-6 tent sites. The campground sits right on the banks of the Ohio river. There is a Camp Host on site during the weekend and some of the week. We have had 3 different Hosts in the 4 years and each has been friendly and helpful. Sites are well taken care of and nice in size. They have 2 pull-through sites that can accommodate big rigs. The shower building is nice and well maintained, although only one shower on each side, with flush toilets. There are also pit toilets on the other side, and flush toilets near the shelters. Nice playground for the kids and a sand volleyball court. A walking path goes around the entire grounds with a section leading back to a small gazebo. Most sites are fairly level, however those near the water have a slope to them. Paved roads that are level, and the walking path make it great for riding bikes.

As mentioned, this campground sits on the banks of the Ohio River. It was flooded several times this Spring and they have closed it for the entire 2018 season. We will miss it, but hope to return next year. Also, because this is a small campground it fills early, so be sure to (try to) book as much in advance as possible.
