Visited the beach at the Mounds with my 3 yo son, my sister-in-law, and her 8 yo dtr. They had a BLAST! The beach area is roped off from the lake so no worries about them getting too far away. The beach was very clean and we went on a week day so not very crowded. It's just good sense... More

My wife, my 14 month daughter and I went with 4 other adults, two preteens, and a 2 year old to Brookville Lake. We rented a 12 person 24 foot pontoon boat and had a blast. If you head south from marina it is a playground for boats, if you head north there is a large no wake area for... More

We go to Brookville lake a couple times a year and its always a good time. This year we found that they offer stand up paddle boarding at the beach at Mounds SRA. What is Stand up paddle boarding? Well SUP originated in Hawaii as an offshoot of surfing. Unlike traditional surfing where the rider is sitting until a wave... More

While the beach was nice the campground leaves a lot be desired. The bathrooms were dirty and you either froze or got scalded in the showers. There was NO rule enforcement so the grounds were loud all hours of the night, drinking and even a fight while we were staying here. Not interested in returning to this campground again.

Over the last five years have visited the Lake and surrounds many times. We've eaten at restaurants on the Lake shore, driven around parts of the Lake, visited the State Recreation Areas and enjoyed walking around the Overlook Recreation Area, which is just off Rt. 101 at the tip of the Lake closest to Brookville. Have some beautiful pictures of... More

Great fall camping. Hayrides for the kids. Visited Antique Machinery Show at the Franklin County Fairgrounds the last weekend in September. We all had a great time!

Brookville Lake is a hidden gem! We love going to the beach, boating, and exploring all the trails! If you live nearby, definitely invest in the yearly pass!

We camped here the 2nd week of April and found it to be a great place. It was pre-season so there weren't a lot of other campers. The sites are good sized so you are not on top of each other. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. Grounds were well maintained. A store with your basic needs and lots of... More

Beautiful area...can't wait to visit again! So much to do here! Had a great time! Close to Cincinnati. About an hour away. Visited the Zoo for the day. Tubed down the Whitewater River. Went fishing, went to the shooting range and archery range at the nearby Quakertown State Recreation area, enjoyed the beach and camped at Mounds State Recreation area.
