We live nearby and fish/boat on this lake often. Lots of timber provide places for bass to thrive. Open water for boaters/ tubes. Nice beach that is used often. We love the two big dams and watched the National Rowing Championship a few weeks ago. Blue-green algae is a problem for swimmers and you need to look for the posted... More

We live within walking distance to the park. We have enjoyed many walks through the woods, and even got lost one time. We have boated there and collected dead wood for my garden. We never camped there, but have had friends who have and they enjoyed it.

My husband and I camped here on a weekend in June for the first time and were somewhat pleased with our stay. We were attending a Saturday night Reds ball game and this campground is conveniently located from downtown Cincy. I am surprised that there are only 9 full service sites out of the 300+ campsites. The bathhouse that was... More

The sites are nice and there are trails for hiking and biking. Most of the shower houses are renovated. Overall a peaceful week and able to relax.

15 years ago, this park was the place to be. Now? The water in the lake is toxic, there is no lodging outside of camping lots, and 0 activities at the beach house. Park is dirty and poorly maintained.

I did 15 mile hiking in the bush at East Fork State Park in the spring. It was an easy hike but it was hard to navigate around as there are not many signs or direction available to guide hikers. There is not much to sell from this place other than it is a big park.

Overall, very nice park with many amenities etc. This place definitely had 5 star potential.... BUT.... We stayed in loop G on Labor Day weekend in the 280's. The park has a 1 vehicle per site rule, yet this is not even remotely enforced and the entire loop looked like a car lot. Not only were folks parking on grass... More
