Fishing, swimming, horseback riding, hiking, photography, laying in the sun, relaxing place to drive around. Very pretty lake. Must stay at the Poplar Creek Bed & Breakfast next door to the park!

Went boating with friends. The lake itself is nice and deep. It has many fingers for exploring, The beach area has new bathhouse and Pavilion. It is very nice. I have used the mountain bike trails in the past they are varied by skill level and good for all levels.

I booked a campsite here online about 2 weeks prior to the holiday. I was honestly surprised to find a spot anywhere, so we took off to East Fork Lake with no idea what we would find when we arrived. First and most importantly, use the address 2837 old state route 32 Batavia to find the campground. Do not use... More

Campground is nice however there are not restrooms & showers in each loop. Swimming area in camp ground is just that, no snack house, bare bones.

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
