“#1 park in Ohio, Need I say more!”

Reviewed Dec 25, 2015

Overall Rating

Have stayed here maybe 15 week long stays over the last 20 years at Mohican. By far the most popular state park in Ohio. What it has going for it is: Large stainless steel swimming pool, which they added a splash zone for 2015. Good variety of campsites which are mostly level. 60% I would classify as above average in size, the other 40% are average or small. About 30-40 sites are right on the river (Clear Creek) which flows into the Mohican about a 1/4 past the campground. Besides the pool the river is where its at. Great for tubing, kayaking or just messing around in. They have a ice cream shop and campstore and a 20+ mile single track mountain bike trail. But be warned :: It's a tough bugger. The campground roads were re-paved in 2015 and a few more electric sites were up-graded to full service. The electric service is updated and offers good power.

The whole Mohican area is known for canoeing. All the private parks charge more, plus extra for each kid. Even with a electric site at $31 which is the highest in the state, it is a deal compared to the private parks. On the down side. If you want to spend a weekend or a whole week here during the summer months, you better reserve 3-4 months before hand. Otherwise your only option are the first 15 sites called walk in (non-reservable). You would have to arrive on a Mon, Tue or Wed. to get a site.

There is a bike lane / trail that leads into the town of Loudenville about a mile away. Because of the level paved camp roads there are a lot of people who bring bikes and such. The 3 showerhouses are your typical Ohio style. This past summer they did have a second cleaning crew that worked the afternoon (2nd shift) to keep them clean. I did notice a difference...Thanx.

On the down side I would say the playground is past it's due. From what I heard is, if they put in a "new" playground, they would have to upgrade their insurance to cover it, which would be very $$$. Otherwise the old one is Grand-fathered in. It's a shame, because there are a lot of kids here.

“Beautiful Piece of Northeastern Ohio”

Overall Rating

We enjoyed 3 days and 2 nights at Mohican in mid September. Arrival is easy as you can expect, staff at the main gate had left for the day but we were clearly directed to the camp store just down the road. If you're not opposed to spending 8 bucks on a bag of dirt seeded with arrowheads or gems, they've constructed a sluice just next door to the camp store where kids (or adults I suppose) can sift out their treasure. Innertubes are available for purchase for floating down the Mohican River which runs the length of the campground.

Having chosen a site in the walk-in section we found our dedicated parking spot roughly 100 yards from our site. During high season I'd imagine even this area could feel a bit crowded but with no one in the sites on either side of ours it was quiet and comfortable. Fire ring and picnic table are what you'll find at the site and although well shaded, most of the tent sites don't have the kind of useful trees you'd look for to stretch a line or hang a lantern. Our site had a private path through the brush a short distance to the river.

The area is beautiful with trails as you'd expect. A short drive out of the park and back in through the nearby South Entrance will take you to the less developed portion of the park. I highly recommend the Lyons Falls trail, which is moderate to occasionally strenuous. It takes a high line through the gorge offering two spurs leading to Big and Little Lyons Falls before crossing the river at the dam and leading back by way of a very mild riverside trail.

Overall we would gladly stay at Mohican again, although would avoid high season. Not a particularly serious complaint but worth mentioning that while restrooms are available near the walk in sites, the centrally located shower facilities are a bit of a walk.
