Findley has many camp sites from full hook-up to primitive. You have to reserve early for special occasions. There are also cabins to rend if you don't have your own camping equipment. There are full service showers and port-a-potties throughout the camp grounds. There is a very large lake for activities. You can rent a kayak or a row boat... More

The trails for hiking at FSP are great. The beautiful pine woods are so serene and a great place to walk and think. If you like to cross country ski, this is the place. The trails are great. Some are for beginners and some can be a little challenging. In the summer, I love to swim. I would not swim... More

Findley Park is a great place to enjoy the day. You can rent canoes at a great price, which I highly recommend. Canoe rentals are a first come, first serve basis for the summer days that bring everyone out. Also, bring a fishing pole if you want to fish. The beach could use a little TLC, but is still a...

First, the positive...there are some nice trails at Findley, good for families even. The beach is just...icky. Goose poop everywhere, and it's not tended to. It's a shame because it could be so nice.

We were pleasantly surprised by how nice this park was; especially by the fresh pine and variety of activities. We took a chance based upon several reviews and since it was only an hour and 20 minutes away and wanted to be close to Ashland for a sports camp. The park had lots of families, a nice little camp store... More

Driving through this park is such a peaceful and serene experience. The air smells of fresh pine, and almost every time we drive through at dusk, we see many deer. Wonderful place to picnic, camp, and just lie on a blanket and breathe the fresh air!

Camped here years ago. Always well maintained, nice camp spaces, some with electric, some primitive. Good activities for families with kids. Canoes and kayaks available, swimming as well. Picnic areas throughout the park. We drive through here every chance we get now for taking pictures, seeing campers and looking for wildlife (we always manage to see deer).

“On paper”, Findley State Park looks great with shady tent, RV, cabin and group camping in a former state forest, hiking trails, lake beach and swimming, fishing, boat rentals, picnic areas, disk golf and a mountain bike trail. The camping area includes flush toilets, shower house, playground and ball courts, a small store and a nature center. While this all... More

Findley State Park has a lot to offer from swimming in the summer, hiking trails all year round and camping all year round. There are plenty of picnic area through out the park. A great place to take the little ones that want to learn how to fish.
