My husband and I really enjoyed this campground. There was plenty of shade, a short walk to the shower house, and lots of amenities. I appreciated how much I saw the owner, checking on the sites and the campground. The pool is a little bit of a hike but worth it. The campground was quiet and peaceful. The paddleboats and... More

On the plus side, the campground is very quiet and secluded. The lake is clean and beautiful. On the down side, the women's restrooms were not cleaned regularly while we were there. The garbage was consistently overflowing and being dragged all over which made it even dirtier. The pool is behind the owner's house which made me a little uncomfortable,... More

We can not allow our campers to put their own personal kayaks or boats on our lake for 2 reasons, our insurance will not cover it and also we take great pride in our lake and do not want to have to shut it down because of Algae brought into it from another lake in Ohio. I think most people... More

Had a great time. Quit and peaceful. Clean. Plenty to see and do. Pond was nice for fishing. An emu even wandered through the camp grounds. The tall trees and grass made the stay great. Not many seasonal campers at Happy Hills.

I think this is a work in progress. The owner was very nice. Yes, the pool is in the back of the owners house but it was nice, clean and the grandkids loved it. We went kayaking and paddle boating. The bathhouse is large and clean. A lot of work going on to improve this campground. Quiet and nice family... More

Lots of kids and dogs, but surprisingly nice and quiet. The lots are shaded so it was nice and relaxing to sit outside and enjoy a camp fire. It is in a great location, nestled between several state parks, close to a bike path and plenty of hiking opportunities. Also a great area for motorcycle riding. We didn't utilize the... More

Overall was satisfied with the camp ground. There were a few things that could've been better but overall it was a great experience. The overall grounds are nice, appear to be a few upgrades/ maintenance projects going on but that makes for a better experience when finished. The pool... It's located at the owners house across the pond. It looks... More

Hey this is nice place if your in your late years. I'm 47 traveling with two daughters 14 and 16 - the pool is a joke, really not usable and it sits at the owners home back yard. It's old and maybe room for 4 chairs around the whole thing. No boats for any squirt gun type fights like in... More

Once again, I have to laugh at another review. Not family oriented? Are you kidding me? LOL, we are very family oriented. I look around this place and often say, if someone can't have a good time here, it's really not our problem. We have hiking trails, boat rentals, peddle kart rentals, fishing, swimming in both the lake and the... More

The lake for fishing was great. Pool was in a decent walk distance and clean. They placed a slip n slide to go in the lake for all to enjoy for a certain time frame. The low bikes you can rent was a great hit for our 10 and 16 yr old plus a game room (they are trying to... More
