My Go-to Weekend Getaway

Saltfork is located about 45 minutes from my house, and makes for the perfect overnight trip. 

There are tons of things to do, and lots of space in which to do them. My favorites includes hiking trails, and the lakeside dog park. 

I stay in the primitive camping, it allows for more…

Nice, clean, family oriented

Family oriented campground. Fairly large sites with full hookups. Good mix of seasonal and overnight. Friendly staff. Roads in the campground are very rough with large potholes. Decent WiFi. Easy on and off from the interstate.

Almost heaven....

What a beautiful place, great campsite with plenty of room between neighbors, weather was perfect and the staff friendly.

Clean and well stocked restrooms, a nice playground and clean bath houses.

Kayaking is wonderful since boat over 10hp are not allowed.

Quiet and beautiful

We arrived on a Sunday and no one was there for us to check in with, which we found odd. Our next stop was the dump station to make sure there was running water and to our surprise, there wasn't. The only way to fill up with water was a hose bibb on the Ranger office at the front gate. The…

Stunning Fall Views

We love Wolf Run if you are just planning to chill at the campsite. Choose one of the “premium” sites for beautiful lakeside views! It’s pretty quiet and usually not busy.

If you are in to hiking, look elsewhere. There is a trail, but we have never been able to successfully follow it, as it…

Can't beat free, but caveats abound.

This tiny gem of a campground is actually quite decent. Each site is furnished with a small fire ring and picnic table. The fire rings do not have a grill grate. The pit toilets in the restroom are "fragrant" when you enter the women's side of the building but not so terribly that they can't be…

Convenient

We stayed here for two months (November and December). It is conveniently located near I-70. Only a few sites are open through the off-season months. Owners are polite, but we’re rarely onsite during our time there. The bathrooms are clean, but were closed at times (not sure why), but we were able…

November camping was bad

We stayed here November 21, 2020 (in the midst of Covid).

The campground had no water hookups, about 90% of the sites were not level (and....I mean by A LOT).

We were one of the only people in the campground, so we ended up just moving to one of the more level campgrounds.

It's a cute…

Wonderful Park

This park is very well groomed and most of the trails within the park had been cleared of vegetation so there was no fighting through the weeds. There are a number of good hikes within the park. We were there Columbus weekend and it was hopping but everyone quieted by 10.

Beautiful, peaceful setting

We came to Shadow Lake in October to camp for the month. To get here, you must drive through the rolling hills of Southern Ohio, which is absolutely gorgeous in October! The campground is beautiful and peaceful, especially at this time of year as most of the campers have either gone south, closed…

Peace and quiet, with a view!

The views are amazing! If you love peace and quiet this is the place for you. All sites are amongst the very tall trees. There are several ponds around the campground for fishing and bird watching. Be sure to keep an eye our for deer as you come into the park! We had to stop a few times for them to…

Great Free Camping

We drove thru Sand Hollow, Bicentennial and Maple Grove before choosing Hook Lake. All of these Jesse Owens State Park/AEP campgrounds are free for up to 14 days. While most of the sites at Hook Lake do not have cell coverage we were lucky enough to find that at the "top of the hill" we were able…

Quaint, & Quiet!!

Great smaller park, (1,000+acre) with easy access to the interstate. My Grandsons Love that the water is clearer than most lakes here in Ohio!! The campsites wrap around the lake, so most of them are Very close to the lake!! Since it is a smaller lake, there isn't any high speed water activities…
