5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Over the years our family has held family reunions here. Nice open area for the kids and play areas to keep them occupied as well.

“Great Campground”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We camped at Winton Woods Campground for one night on our way to Tennessee. This would have been a great destination in itself and wished we could have stayed another night. I was very pleased with the campground. It was very beautiful there with the lake. This campground had everything you needed, including wifi. We were at site #69 and it was a great site close to the bathroom (very clean) and showers. The showers were free. The paved trails were nice.The people working there were very friendly. We enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay there again if we were in that area. You do have to pay $3 for a park sticker for a day or $10 for the year.

“Nice park :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

While not what we were looking for in terms of trails and hiking, Winton Woods is a very nice park. There are nice paved trails, areas to fish, canoe and kayak rentals, and opportunities to take instruction for kayaking. The park is divided by the main road. One side of the park is really great for children with a playground, a snack bar, and centrally located bathrooms. The other side, which does not have direct lake access, is great for picnics and camping. It is a little more like a state forest. We would probably return if not for the less than scenic drive to get there. That alone takes the fun out of feeling like you are escaping to nature for the day. We will continue to look for a park with a forest-like feel. So far, Jolly Park outside of Alexandria is top on our list.

“Another good County park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Winton Woods has a little bit of everything. For those with young kids it has parky's farm to pet animals, ride pony's, a great playground and also an indoor playground. It also has lots of hiking if you want to do that and in the summer a splash yard for younger kids as well. The splash yard is pretty entertaining for those kids under 6-7. Also the parkys farm I would recommned only for children under 6-7 as well.

“This Truly is a Hidden Gem in Cincinnati”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

I have driven by the park many, many times over the years. What you see from the road is only a very small portion of what is there, as it turns out. It does look inviting from the highway as a picnic area but that's all I thought there was. My son and his family invited my wife and I to go camping for the weekend at Winton Woods. My initial thought was - "where in the world do you camp in Winton Woods?" Turns out 3/4 mile to the east of the main entrance to the park is an 80+ spot camping area around the lake. Very nice for tent, small campers and even large motor homes. All the amenities you would expect. Nice playground for kids. Snack bar at the check in building and a small grocery / gift shop. Nicely kept and clean. People will come here to camp that want to spend the weekend exploring Cincy and Kings Island. License plates from all over. Up nearer the main entrance is a kids water park, meant for 12 years old and under, called Parky's Ark. The grandkids spent several hours there. Parents can sit on comfortable benches, some in the sun, some in the shade. Snack bar for sandwiches, ice cream, etc is close by along with changing rooms. A very nice set up. Small paddle boats, kayaks and canoes are also available for rental; so are bikes. We took in the lake boat tour on a large shaded pontoon boat that is available, that shows you some of the local wildlife and how big the lake is - takes about 40 minutes. Very enjoyable and relaxing. Across Winton Rd is a golf course and a riding stable for more recreation. It's a great place to take the kids for an afternoon. You don't have to camp. Lots of walking trails and bike trails. There is a $10 annual park fee to use any of the parks in Hamilton County, but you have unlimited access to any of them once you pay that. Better deal than the $3 per daily use fee if you have an inkling to go back. We plan to do just that and take in the bike paths. I had NO idea this place was as cool as it is. Highly recommended.
