This place was clean, with pink wallpaper in the bathrooms! Love it! Great owners, staff, and fellow campers, including the seasonals. Could use more shade, but was fine for us. Wi-Fi FREE and worked really well. Decent sized sites and I'd go back anytime. Everything very well kept there. I hear they have great dancing on the weekends if you are into that.

This is a very clean, family oriented campground. Super nice owners, and you can tell that they really enjoy running the campground. Beautiful facilities, spacious sites, nice pool, great place to have clean camping fun. Very quiet during our stay. Clean showers and baths. Everything was nice and in good repair. I wish this one was closer to home because I'd stay there often!

Upon check-in we requested a site that we could renew beyond the three nights requested should we decide to stay longer. We were told no problem, and the camp had many open sites during our entire stay. We went to the office to renew and they refused to renew our site. The staff said that it was rented and if we wished to stay we would have to move to another site. NOW. We decided to just go on to our next destination if we had to pack any way due to the work involved. Nobody on the staff had bothered to warn us that we needed to move or leave, and we found out accidentally by going to the office to renew despite our previous request to potentially stay in that site longer. Instead of heading to the beach we now had one hour to pack and move our unit. We told them after packing that we would like to park the camper in their acres of empty parking lots while we went to the beach since our plans had been disrupted and they said NO! Yeah, I love good customer service. Frankly it wasn't worth renewing any way since our site was pathetic, way too small even for a pop up, and afforded zero privacy. We had to encroach on the neighbors to put out our tiny awning. Further the toilets were overflowing daily and the baths were not clean. The showers cramped my petite body, and my husband could barely fit into them. Quiet hours were not enforced and kids roamed late into the night, smoking, lighting fireworks, and cussing. A woman of mature age walked into the bathroom one night, smacked a beer down on the shelf, used the facilities and walked out. Tacky. I now see why the other campgrounds are booked every night of the summer and this one has tons of vacancies! Steer clear, as we will in the future.

This is a beautiful, wooded park. Baths were modern and clean. Many seasonal sites, but most kept up pretty well. Open sites scattered among seasonals. Neighbors all very friendly. This is part of Muskingum Watershed Conservancy parks. Rangers patrolled often and park was mostly pretty quiet. Good for families, and you make your own entertainment enjoying the lake, trails, and beach.

This huge and beautiful state park was quiet, well patrolled, and was very well kept. Horseback riding, free putt putt, frisbee golf, nice lake, boat rentals, and miles of nature trails, are all free or very reasonably priced. Convenient to Miami University. Basic supplies in camp store. Marina has grill food for sale. We'll return to this park. Only drawback is that many sites are quite hilly or sloped, so be careful if you use the reservation system.

Park has radio free zones, which means total peace and quiet if you camp in those areas. Rangers regularly patrol. All bathrooms/showers were closed due to pump problems during our stay, which meant pit toilets in a far away location were all that was available. This has happened more than once at this park, so one would think that emergency service would be rendered to fix the problem. If that's a regular occurrence I doubt that I would return no matter how beautiful the park. We used this as a base to tour Toronto, and the train station is a few miles away.

Easy access to the Falls from here. We visited during the week and it was fairly empty. Even so, the baths were quite busy, so during a full campground there probably aren't enough facilities. It was very odd, because ALL staff appeared to vacate the premises at 4pm daily. They locked the pool, office, store, and left. The regulars would immediately scale the fence and swim in the pool after hours, and nobody ever addressed them. Obviously that means security is nonexistent. We didn't have any trouble, but it could get bad with a full camp as you'd be on your own. The grounds are very nice and they are redoing the riverfront area. Baths are tiled and clean.

Wonderful state park. Wasn't busy on weekdays. One shower house new, the other old, but decently kept. Very large sites. Convenient to many tourist activities. I'd go back to this one.

Nice state park. Bathrooms, showers immaculate. Very pretty lake, mostly no wake zone so very quiet. Campsites available right on the water. Good access for kayaks/canoes from your site too. Fishing and relaxing are the order of the day here. Nice playground, bike and canoe rentals, hiking paths, lots of things to do. Many shaded and very large sites, all paved. Only drawback was limited water taps around park and an occasional odor in the air. Farm nearby? We couldn't figure it out.

Nicest, cleanest bathrooms I've ever seen. Great hosts. Nice pool, all facilities nice. Wifi worked, but very slow. Heavy rains flooded river sites, but we were up on the hill. Store well stocked. Out in country, away from town.

Great state park, large sites, sand and paved. Drive or bike down to the beach, too far to walk, but wasn't really a problem. Interesting former military base, with lots to explore in park. No camp store, and attendant not in much, but ice and firewood available at gate. Could use more baths, crowded at times. Large beach area, cleaned nightly, lifeguards on duty, concessions and restrooms available. Fishing pier, kayak rentals, lots of good programs/tours in park.

Very nice, basic state park. Restrooms decent and regularly cleaned. Sites not designed for biggest units, but you can fit. Hiking trails among most beautiful in country. Waterfalls are everywhere in this region. Campground very quiet at night. Walk to trails, Cayuga Lake from your site. Great place for families.

Beautiful state park with huge campsites. We went during the week and had our pick of waterfront sites. They said it's very busy on weekends. Baths basic, but clean and decent. Lake is all no wake, and fishing is big here. Only complaint is that pets are not always quiet, and some acted aggressive. Park rangers should address that problem.

We had the place pretty much to ourselves, which was nice. There is some road noise as it sits on a country highway. Grounds very clean, as were the baths, and everything was in good repair and looked great. Pool looked nice, but we didn't use it. Owners keep sharp eye on the place and it shows. It's about an hour train ride into Chicago and makes a good base for sightseeing. We would return.

I've never camped in tighter spaces in my life! Our neighbors literally sat on our picnic table, and the fire ring was against their car, making it impossible to use. The baths are insufficient, and it took me three hours to get a shower. Speakers are in the trees and they make announcements from 8am to 10pm--"Good Morning Campers..." Wifi--NOT--unless you trek to the office and sit on a skinny bench with your laptop while cars roll over your feet. Roads straight up and down and very tough to navigate. Road noise and railroad very loud, but don't worry, they'll wake you with the speakers in the trees if you slept through all that. This was an experience we won't soon forget!
