“Really nice campground!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

We actually live local to this park and wanted to try camping for the first time as a family. Since it was labor day weekend and this was last minute all the sites were booked but they have several available walk-in sites. We got a non-electric site and it was really nice. The kids really enjoyed the campground. The bathrooms and shower areas were so nice - I couldn't believe we were in a campground. There are plenty too all in good locations. We weren't able to take advantage of all that was offered because we ended up getting lots of rain but we definitely want to go back here.

“Beach was not that great, trails needed attention”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

It just wasn't that great. It was ok. The trails seemed neglected and the beach wasn't all that attractive. Might be better for those who like to water ski or other small to medium boat activities

“Nice, Nice, Nice Campground!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

West Branch has thecleanest, nices,t newest bathrooms of the 3 state park campgrounds we've been to in the last 2 years. We wish we could have the West Branch campground near a Columbus area location. Not much else nearby, so bring what you need or be prepared to travel into Ravenna. Some construction on the roads have made getting into the campgrond a bit tougher this year, but West Branch still wins for great facility and lake. Seems like water level is lower at West Branch than at Alum Creek this summer of 2012.

“One of the nicest state parks we've visited”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Love this park. Sites are nice and level with a fair amount of shade. Bathrooms/showers are clean and unique in that the showers are their own little "rooms." Very private.

Only issue is that this campground does not have near enough full hookups. They are sold out early in the season so, for those of us who are lazy and don't want to have to visit the dump station on the way out of the park (or fill up the water on the way in), this is a bummer.

“Great State Park!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

This was our second visit to West Branch. We went with our pop-up and took kayaks and bikes. Our camp site was wonderful. Lots of shade and plenty of room. The bath house was very clean with great showers. The beach is OK, lots of geese have been there but that seems to be an issue every where. There were lots of speed boats but we were still able to kayak. Loved having the bikes to get around the campground. The camp office had games that we could borrow. We look forward to returning to this park.

There is a bridge that is under construction that made it a bit difficult to find but it looks like the bridge will be done soon.
