Very nice state park. Camping area is awesome but sites are a little short. Playground for children is top notch.

Customer Service was not the greatest, the room was tiny, and not what was expected for the price. There is really not so much to do here except for hiking.

We drove up from Portsmoth and checked out the golf course and marina. Average course but reasonably priced. The marina is just for docking boats and no rentals but nice view. If you are in to hiking, the trails are just through the woods with no peaks or waterfalls. The restaurant does offer a buffet on Friday was all you... More

Enjoyed the Drive thru the State Park and Forest. We are looking forward to staying at the camp ground later this month. The pinic area was just the thing for a bunch of folks looking to BBQ.

This is my favorite state park in Ohio. You can't beat the beauty of these hills or the rich bio-diversity you will find here. I've visited in the fall as well. It's amazing.

Every year my family books a week long camping trip at a different location. This one was a total flop. To start off the website to book your reservations was sorely lacking in information that would be nice to know. There is zero cell service within 10 miles of the campground, the military discount only applies if you are a... More

Have stopped in many times to eat at this beautiful park and restaurant. As motorcycle riders, there are winding and steep roads to undertake and enjoy. Highly recommend this spot.

Shawnee State Park is a spectacular area to enjoy nature at it's best; lovely, peaceful lake and mountains. The park is kept clean and offers hiking, swimming, fishing and boating. Nice place to relax.

Beautiful, fun and adventurous. Make a day of it, or a weekend escape to be refreshed. Park activities are fun and a learning experience for all. Park Ranger Jenni is super fun and full of knowledge! I'm going back soon to enjoy the large pool.
