“Camping at Harrison Lake”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Very nice, campground. Plenty of shade but not so many trees it's hard to get a camper backed in or find space for setting up chairs, etc. They allow pets and depending on where you camp, there are large open areas adjacent to your lots for animals to run / play in. Nice beach when weather warm enough, small gift shop and ice at entrance to park. No water hookups, but water available if you don't want to bring it from home. Paved street and pads, playground equipment scattered throughout the campgrounds, showerhouse, bathrooms. Nice reservation process online, they do have a rewards program (I think for Ohio State Parks, not just Harrison Lake). They do have one cabin and 2 yurts, all handicap accessible.

“This is a nice place to camp!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We have camped here on two separate occasions. Each time was always the same -- wonderful! The campground is kept clean, the bathrooms/showers are clean, and it is a very comfortable environment -- peaceful and tranquil. At their small store, you can rent these unique bikes that will give you quite a workout. But, once you get the hang of them, they are really a lot of fun.

We already have plans to return in 2013.
