Great weekend trip with the family, even without swimming

I will admit, I was not excited to come here base on previous reviews and the fact that the lake was filled with algae so we couldn't swim. What else was there to do with 4 kids... read more

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

I will admit, I was not excited to come here base on previous reviews and the fact that the lake was filled with algae so we couldn't swim. What else was there to do with 4 kids under age 10? We had a great time. Our lot was right next to the playground, and was easy to back our trailer... More

We camped here for 3 nights. The campground has a lot of sites but was rather empty while we were there. Every campsite has an asphalt driveway. Our site was nice with some trees along the edges. The bathrooms were typical for a campground - not overly clean but not filthy. Bring your bikes. It is easy to ride the... More

Shame on Ohio. This used to be a awesome beach with nice facilities. No more. Get's worse yearly.. Not keeping it maintained and lack of consistency of snack bar is making this beach a place you prefer not to visit. Tough it used to be beautiful.

Have been fishing in the waters since 2009. Have been tubing in it since 2011. Deep waters, plus 90 feet in some places. Have been tubing and knee boarding many times without problems. A lot of boats in a small area compared to Larger lakes such as Norris or Cumberland. Water is usually unclear, but clean for the most part.... More

Super clean and friendly place. Safe for kids to bicycle . Beach area is run down and neglected. They don't offer boat rental. The only thing you can do is play putt putt but it's in direct sunlight, there is shade nowhere there or at the kid's park.

Very nice lake for boating, fishing or swimming. Pretty large and nice scenery abound. They have a beach there as well for the more laid back or littler ones to enjoy.
