A hidden gem

Lots to do here and keep in mind that not all of it is right in the campground. Great place to hike to a cool bridge and waterfall. We also went to a nearby pioneer village. We even got a permit to collect fossils. Great visitor centers too.

Grew up in this campground

Unfortunately they lost most of the trees to disease. It’s a great campground for families looking for lots to do. Not good for someone seeking solitude and quiet. Plenty of activities for kids. Swimming and fishing were my favorites as a kid in the ‘70s there.

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

Such a pretty park!

We stayed two nights. Quiet, neat, clean, friendly. Pull-thru and back in sites, easy in-and-out. Take an early morning walk along the lake.

One of Ohio's best parks

I was blessed to grow up down the road from Hueston Woods, frequently camping, hiking, fishing, etc. Beautiful park, great campgrounds, numerous trails, large nature center, and awesome beach for dogs.

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.

Awesome weekend

Great campground and park. We stayed during Camper Appreciation weekend. Lots of activities. Staff was super friendly. Park was clean. Bison herd was an awesome experience. The only down side was our site was quite unlevel. Aside from minor updating needed (like most KY state park campgrounds), this was a great visit.

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!

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.

Winton woods campground

Nice campground, for a county Park. Full-hookups have little to no shade. Sites are pretty close together and small, but standard for a county Park. The electric sites are nice. Reasonable amount of shade in most. The campground is clean and well maintained. Nice playground for the (younger) kids. Shower houses are always clean and have good water pressure. The biggest downfall to this campground is the location. Just doesn't seem quite right to be able to hear city noises and (major) road traffic while camping. Other than that a decent place.

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).

Nice and Cozy

Great place to learn some history, hike a trail, and view the bison. There are places to have a picnic, and a small campground is available. A visitor center and gift shop is also onsite.

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.

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!

Clean and convenient

Winton Woods is located conveniently off of I 275. The sites are good size offering full hook up and electric only sites. It’s a great place for kids to play and ride bikes. They have a nice fishing lake, frisbee golf, bike and walking loop around the lake! Enjoy!

Big sites, big field

This campground has decent, wide sites, but there are very few trees or privacy. Sites are side by side, one after the other so you have no privacy and sound carries all the way up the loop. All the sites say "partial shade" on the reservation page, but beware, this shade only happens as the sun is going down.

Bathrooms were fine, relatively clean. There is a little store, but note that the firewood is in huge, unburnable pieces, (as most Ohio state park firewood is), so you'll need tons of kindling and several firestarters, or an ax and some way to hack at the logs.

The lake is huge and very pretty; there is a pioneer village that is interesting to walk around, and 3 or 4 canoe liveries nearby. All in all, it's a decent campground, just not too quiet or isolated if you are trying to get away from people.

Very nice campground

If you kayak the Lilly pad are awesome to paddle through.

Great park

This is clean and well maintained campground. The sites are large, and RV parking is easy. It's a long way to town, so be prepared. There were 2 camp hosts and they were responsive to campers.

Golfing in Falmouth Kentucky!

Plenty of primitive camping! Few on the lake. Showers swimming pool. general store inside the park.

Breathtaking scenery

The boating area is nice and has your typical “outdoor “ facilities you would find at a rest area. The scenery of the water and trees are amazing. The campground is good for tent camping but iffy for others. I would definitely bring extra leveling blocks.

Beautiful

This campground is in a quiet area with amazing scenery. The access to hiking trails is wonderful.

Better than expected

Happily surprised at the quality of the facilities and the things that were available to do! Great experience

Lake-side Camping

Private campsites, nice big lake for swimming, fishing and boating, pets allowed. Perfect for all seasons! Horseback riding available as well!
