“Great, Free Camping in Central OH”

Reviewed Aug 11, 2015

Overall Rating

This is reclaimed land from the mining days for central OH. There are several campgrounds nearby, including Hook Lake, Maple Grove, Sand Hollow, Bicentennial, Wood Grove and Loop C. Camping is free but permits are required and may be printed from the web or picked up at local businesses.

I spent 2 nights over the weekend in early August

Pros:

-Tons of sites spread out over numerous campgrounds.
-Free!!
-Quiet. I was told campground "C" was the rowdiest campground and that it is often much busier at most of the campgrounds.
-You could stay for up to 3 months.
-Year-round camping at some campgrounds.
-Friendly campers
-Big sites
-Not many rules, pet friendly
-Water available
-Bathrooms available but I did not use.
-Fairly remote for Ohio
-Gravel roads were in great shape
-Trash cans, picnic tables, fire rings at sites

Cons:

-Bugs: lots of them
-No stores or services close by
-No cell service at Sawmill. Decent 3g close by at the overlook, not far from the campground. I had a pretty decent 3g connection on Verizon with a booster at the overlook.
