This very impressive large facility provides recreational opportunities for locals, and we drive through on each visit, just to take in the beauty. Nature center is open limited hours, with native Indian history also explained..

We camped in loop B which was very clean and enjoyable. However, the restrooms were too small. There were not enough facilities for the number of people using them. I noticed all loops only had one restroom and some loops were much bigger. We drove...More

I have done everything at this park: camped, boated, hiked, swam, wandered around. It is a great place to get away without having to actually drive away.

We have stayed at Eastfork campground many times. One of the largest campgrounds in Ohio, but only one loop has full hookups. There is a very small camp store, playgrounds, and a shelter for group events. There is a loop for horse trailers and 2...More

Stayed here Memorial Weekend with another family. Our site was teeny tiny, and since we have a motor home, we pulled in rather than backed in so we could share our friends’ site. Had we not done that, we could not have put our awning...More

I don't know about the horse trails. I haven't walked or ridden on them. Google the park phone number and ask a ranger or other personnel. Sorry I can't help.
