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.

Clean bathrooms, private sites. I wish we had had more time to explore, but we'll head back that way someday, and will be sure to stop by.

I never could understand why people would complain about going to A state Park campground. I think this place rocks. My friends and I make a pilgrimage to this place at least once a year. We stay up late and drink a few beers and listen to music and all is good. We are college educated and know how to... More

We went camping August 2013 and had a good time. The sites were decent sizes, the bathrooms were very clean for a campground, and the beach was close by. Streets are paced which is nice for riding bikes, and there was some other stuff to do as well.

Enjoyed staying at East Fork State Park on a camping trip with family. The camping spots were fairly close together, but the beautiful spots kept it feeling spacious. Lots of bunnies and a deer which delighted our daughter. Almost every loop of campsites had it's own bathrooms and showers. All cleaned daily during our visit. For the GPS, the address... More

My boys, dog and I regularly hit the mountain biking trails at this Ohio State Park. There are three courses to choose from. The beginner is easy and relatively flat. The intermediate is fun with a few challenging hills. The techincal is kinda dificult and hard to get into a rythem when cycling but is challenging and very fun at... More
