The whole family loves this campground - even the teenagers! The lake is a hit so much that we never go to the pool. Having free, unlimited access to pedal boats and other boats is a huge treat.
The recreation activities are fun and include bingo, crafts and archery. Small crafts as part of recreation activities are free. Larger projects such as ceramics or wood burning have a fee.
We normally do State Campgrounds, but my kids were occupied the entire time and gave 5 stars. The 600 series sites were private, the campground is secluded with tons of mature trees. The staff was polite, helpful. Bathrooms were clean and in great shape, and all around non stop fun activities for the family. We’ll be back
If the staff had been friendly it may have made some difference in this review. First, if you have kids and a small camper this may be for you. But if you have an RV, it's very tight fit. Spots are literally right on top of each other. Everything is gravel. Little to no grassy areas in camping areas. Beach and walking trails are nice. Utilities work well, including wifi. But, the narrow roads, very tight spaces are awful. Also, our adult children joined us for a few hours one evening to cook out. Did not stay. But each was charged a $10 entrance fee. When we left I went in the office to check out and nearly couldn't get in/out for office staff standing in ailseways chatting. Then the staff with whom I inquired about check out requirements, looked us up in computer, and said, "You're good." No, thanks for staying. No, hope you had a great stay. No, Come see us again. Then I could barely get out for staff in ailseway chatting. While the other campers were friendly, loved seeing the children playing and having fun, the difficulty in/out, small spots & indifference of staff - we will never return.
This campground is located in Mt Gilead Ohio off route 61. It is very clean and well kept. There are tons of activities for children and a very nice camp store. They have a small swimming pool and a lake with water slides, wibit, and paddle boats. They offer crafts and other daily activities.
