Nice place and hospitality đź‘Ť as soon as we drove up. Escort to our site #55 with Full Hookups. Close sites but very well organized, clean private baths/bathrooms, laundry and pool. Fishing is catch and release and they are bitting.

family fun

We go here at least once a year! Usually with a large group! Lots for kid to do! The bathrooms, showers and camping sites are always well maintained and clean! It is my favorite place to camp

Quaint and friendly

We camped here on a stormy weekend but the weather didn’t stop the exploring. There are amazing areas to hike and explore. The staff was super friendly as well.

Very nice.

They have a very clean shower house, campsites are nestled around woodland. Peaceful, close to most activities, stores etc.

Great Place to enjoy the outdoors

Amazing views of the water and surrounding wooded areas. Good place to fish for bluegill and catfish. Awesome place to swim during daytime hours, just remember to us caution and don’t go out of designated area. Nice trails for hiking or taking a cruise on your bike. Spend the night at the camper cabin or if you have an RV hookup to one of the electric sites and enjoy the sunset. Wonderful place for the kiddos to learn about the great outdoors while enjoying some family time.

Wonderful place to camp!! Clean , lake is majestic!!

Make reservations!! Great place for riding bike , hiking , walks. swimming, fishing. Staff are friendly, campground is clean. We love going there. Double sites have plenty of room.

Good beginner park

Not a bad little park for mountain biking, hiking, etc.

Charming

Cute, charming Ohio State Park. Enjoy 4 lovely hiking trails that showcase the parks features by taking you through the woods and fields. Fish is offered and their is boat dock . Only issue was that campground is walk in only . There are showers nearby and a dump station is provided. Overall this park is great for enjoying some quiet time.

Great day trip from Cincinnati

Excellent location from Cincinnati, around 30 minutes. Hike along the hills, Fish for crappie and bluegill. Enjoy lunch at any of the 4 clean large areas. Stay at an electric only or full hookup spot and hang out by the campfire. This campground is spacious, clean and well kept and not to far from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Nice and Cozy

Very clean and well maintained campground. Some spots are shaded, while others sit in direct sun. A lot of sites are monthly and tight fitting. Nice lake, you are able to fish. Bathhouse is near entry and clean.

Great getaway that is right outside of the city!

Great place to go to get away from the city and routine! But also close enough incase you left something at home!

Outstanding jaw-dropping slice of beauty

Nestled close to the Ohio River and the Shawnee State Forest, you will find rolling hills and valleys that offer serene beauty and picturesque landscapes. Wildflowers run rampant throughout this enchanted state park, and deer, raccoons, and turkey frolic throughout the more than 1,160 acre paradise. Challenge your family members for a round of mini golf or basketball, or set out on a geocaching adventure. Cruise along one of the numerous hiking trails and or set off on a relaxing ride on the two bridle trails. Rest your head at one of the campsites offering a dump station and showers, or stay in a cabin. If neither of those are your thing there is a beautiful lodge that provides swimming pools, a game room, and breathtaking views of either the river or forest.

Great Campground

Privately owned. Majority of the sites are permanent. Right across from the North Beach of Rocky Fork Lake

Nice Getaway

Open areas but still allows for some nice, wooded spots. Has mountain bike trails that can get to other areas, but it’s a car ride to most park amenities.

Peaceful, very pretty!

Campground has recently expanded to add more sites. Lots of planned activities for the kids. Great greenhouse down the road for fun in the Fall.

Outstanding

Upon entering you will notice the excellent upkeep to the state park. The cemetery that sits on the hill is exquisite. Jesse Stuart Lodge has the grounds looking amazing and the building stands out perfectly against the lake. Well marked trails. The campground provides huge sites for plenty of recreational activities and still have space left over. Playgrounds for children. The marina is well marked and the staff in the marina store are outstanding. Very friendly, and helpful. Lake looks great!

Breathtaking and Peaceful

This is a beautiful state park with breathtaking views of creeks along the roadway, wonderful landscape designed by nature, good hiking trails, peaceful campground, and a nice lodge. The campground is a bit tight, especially when lots of cars are in visiting the campers, very peaceful though as the night goes on. The road to the lake could use a little TLC. Trails are marked nicely, as well as how to get to the equestrian site, Day use area, pool, lodge, and restaurant. Restaurant was very good buffet and menu items available. Lodge was clean and well kept. Very relaxing state park.

Simple and Basic

Offers over 800 acres for you to Boat, fish, camp, hike, and swim. Very secluded and spaces are somewhat tight. There are basketball courts, a gift shop, mini-golf, opportunity for tennis (equipment may be rented).

Amazing

This Park & Campground is wonderful. Just the right size for all your camping and outdoor needs. Some spots are tight and a few are directly in front of others so that spectacular water view may not be available if there’s a big RV in front of you. Great fishing opportunity and there’s also a golf course.

Awesome

I've camped here many times with my kiddos and have always had a great time with no trouble

A very peaceful campground!

This is one of the most relaxing campground we have ever been to. It was so nice camping right on the Ohio River,watching barges go by.

Wonderful

It's a a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the Ohio river. Can't wait to go back.

Love this place!

This is a gorgeous campground right on the Ohio River. The new owners are so friendly and helpful. I can't wait to come back and explore more of they area!

Ohio River Campground - Hidden Gem

This is a peaceful and quiet campground located along the Ohio River. All sites have 50 amp and water hook ups. Most have fire rings and picnic tables. It is amazing to watch the river barges go by and they also have fishing available. Shower house is clean and warm!!

Excellent campground

I love just pulling into a site and not leveling the RV. Besides that, the park is well kept with plenty of spaces and the bathhouse is clean. Lots of hiking trails including house trails.

Nice scenery, very strict

The campground in tucked in the middle of the state park and seems pretty secluded (no cell service). The primitive camping sites are pretty packed in and don't have a lot of privacy, and not a lot of flat land to set up a tent. $25 a night is a bit steep for the amenities you receive.

The campground is very strict about the rules - you are NOT allowed to gather firewood (of any size - which seems odd to me) but then they are also very strict about what firewood you can bring in. I guess you should plan on buying it there - although they charge $6 a bundle. Another strange thing is that you must have your dogs on a leash at all times. We were literally the ONLY campers there and they still felt the need to enforce this. Our dogs are very friendly and well-behaved. I could understand this if they had gone up to the ranger car, were barking, or not listening to us, but it just seems odd to me to enforce this.

I don't think this would be a park where we will return as it would not have been enjoyable if there had been a lot of other people.

We were able to enjoy the beautiful lake and the fall views.

One last thing to add - there is a cemetery in the middle of the campground which I find a bit creepy!

Beautiful in the fall

I have camped here in the spring and summer. This was my first trip in fall. The weather was wet and cold, but it couldn’t take away from the experience. The campsite that I was on was a double.(A30). It has electric, no water or sewage on the spot. We had 2 campers on the site with plenty of room. One is 37 ft and the other is 24 ft. There was plenty of downed trees to cut up. You should bring a bow saw. We also brought some wood. We were close to the water and trails. All of the teens that were with us had a ball(hiking, biking, basketball, and fishing). Sites are all clean and level and the bathrooms are clean.

A simple, but extremely friendly park!!!

Most of the sites are gravel, but level site the site that I stayed out had excellent service as far as water, sewer and electric goes. Very clean bath houses. A lake for fishing, or just watching the ducks. And a very large pavilion, For special events and get-togethers. Wonderful, friendly staff, just looking to be of service to you.

Peaceful, beautiful, a must visit!!

This is an amazingly well maintained, beautiful campground. The sites are on the lake and are large and flat. Awesome views and a tranquil lake for kayaking, canoeing or swimming. This is a must visit park!
