Great campground. Not too crowded, a lot of options to satisfy most campers, big lots, small lots, some are pull through, most are not. A lot of trees, so you can get anything from full sun to full shade. Everything is easy to find and signage is good. most of the parking pads are slightly off level, but nothing that can't be fixed with the standard leveler jacks.
Nice little place, they have some decent quality and decent price clothing with the park name on it. A very good selection of camping stuff, and all the stuff you forgot to pack. did not try any of the ice cream or good
Overall, relatively clean, Similar to any other Ohio state park, they are Spartan in nature, but functional and well lit. See below for bathroom concerns.
There are several playgrounds, and all seemed in very good condition. There is also an amphitheater, although no activities on the weekend we went.
Parking, boat ramps, and boat slips all good, nothing worth noting.
We came here to kayak. The lake at the campground is generally shallow and is no wake for a good stretch. This is a huge lake and we kayaked the lower 1/3. We made it past the fishermans wharf by a quarter mile or so. The eastern shore has a lot of inlets and is fun for paddling. The fishermen also like this area. The western edge is a little more mundane, but the heavily wooded shoreline was changing colors and was still nice to look at. We saw a lot of turtles, and heron. Schools of fish congregated in the shallow inlets on the eastern shore.
Watch out for . . .
There are two or three "shower houses" that include bathrooms. There are also 7 or 8 "bathroom only" structures around the campgrounds. The shower houses contain soap and electric hand dryers. The other bathroom only bldgs. do not have soap, any type of hand drying or toilet seat covers. Be sure to carry your own soap and paper towel if you use one of these.
Skunks and raccoons are frequent night visitors, do not leave any food or trash outside, not even the sticks you roast marshmallows on, otherwise you will have visitors.
You are very very close to the Hillsboro airport, so don't be surprised if you hear small aircraft revving their motors for take-off. Even late at night or early in the morning.
Not my favorite lake to kayak, but the campground and surrounding make it nice enough to visit again.
