“Very small operation lends itself to friendly people and great time!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2008

Out of all the State parks in Ohio i have been to, which is close to 20, this one was the smallest operation. There is no nature center, no showers or pluming, just pit toliets. I didnt see a park ranger and it appeared there was only one naturalist and one lady who worked at the camp store, which was a small trailer looking building. These attributes lead to an awesome atmosphere where you felt welcomed. We camped in site 49, which is the last one in the non electric section, right next to a creek. Awesome setting to camp. The sites are pretty close together, so on Friday we were somewhat secluded but Saturday there was a family right next to us. Even with it being a small place, there are things to do: basketball court, vball court, canoeing and paddleboats on the lake, picnicing on a little island in the lake, trails and of course good ole campfires and everything that is included in that. Would recommend this location to anyone!
