“Nice campground/ unfriendly host”

Rocky Fork Lake State Park
Ranked #1 of 15 things to do in Hillsboro
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a nice campground, with sites on the water. However, to get first row they book in advance... But overall , this is a very nice park. However the campground host appears to be unfriendly and not social. We saw him on several occasions, and he did not speak. The only thing we continually saw him do, was to hurry to a vacated campsite, so he could retrieve their unused wood... My definition of host, means to " make people feel welcome and being hospitable". We rented a boat from marina and had a very nice day on lake. There are a lot of Canadian geese, so the campground has an abundance of geese droppings.

Rocky Fork used to be the place to go for some recreational fun. There are not as many picnic tables as a matter of fact there are none in some areas. There are no garbage cans, you have to take your trash out with you. If you just go there to walk, it is nice for that. The state has cut way back on cleaning, mowing, etc.

Rocky Fork is a somewhat small park but that means you have some elbow room and a chance to enjoy clean facilities, a nice swim beach, nice close in parking to the beach and picnic areas. Except for "Thunder in the Hills" days it is a great family park that provides a chance to enjoy nature and just relax.

Our family has visited a Rocky Fork for many years!
It started out as "ok" but since then they have made it so much nicer!
It has a great beach area to swim. Plenty of room to sit on your towels and have a BBQ under the shade trees!
Nice parking all paved and easy access to the beach area.

The campgrounds are awesome! Plenty of camp sites and again all paved.

There are the typical little "general" stores close by that sell the last minute emergency items you may need.

I recommend this state park to everyone.

Ohio is blessed with a number of excellent man-made lakes.

We don't care for "Thunder in the Hills," and avoid the lake at that time.

Otherwise Rocky Fork is a great family day trip, and we do enjoy sailing.
