The park itself where the camping happens is actually pretty small as in one loop. We never saw a park representative. We were there on a weekday and we also did not interact with a host at the camp ground. It was very low key. It is right in town and by the main road so you will hear road noise.
It is also right next to a golf course. We hung out on the golf porch after hours enjoying the rocking chairs. We also drove by several of the local distilleries. The next morning we had donuts in town before we hit the road to our next campsite. https://www.hadornsbakery.com/
We didn't see any hiking trails but it is interesting to notice that they have a dog/bark park across the street that you can pay for access to for you and your 4 legged friend.

The primitive campsites by the main road do not even show up on the map or on the state's website. I am not sure how one would go about camping in the grassy area by the playground as they were nice spots.
The real reason why we came to the campground is because nearby is https://bernheim.org/ This was a wonderful place to hike and spend the day. We also got to see the forest giants. They recommend a donation of $10.00 per car and it was well worth it.
