Wow!! We happened to stumble across this campground while making an ohio map of campgrounds to visit. For some reason this place is not known to most. Every time I ask people if they've been here, no one ever knows about it. Even my parents didn't know it existed, and we did a lot of camping growing up. Delete state park is in the middle of corn county and has very little around it. Just the drive from the entrance of the park to the sites takes ten minutes. But it is a beautiful drive. The park is huge, gas multiple playgrounds, beach, tornado shelter, etc. The campgrounds have brand new roads and pads that are very level, very long and extremely wide! The absolute best site pads I've seen. The sites are large mostly spread out. Many of the bathrooms are updated to the private seperate bath/shower stalls that were amazing to use. We booked at the last minute and honestly didn't have the highest hopes for the place based on some older reviews. We really lucked out with the ONLY site that was open. Amazing site 197!!! This site was probably the best site in the entire campground. It was huge, backed up to the woods, lake, hiking trails and a huge picnic area in the woods. The fire pit, which was at least 20 feet behind our camper, had a circle of trees around it where we hung our two hammocks and had room for more. All of the fire pits were the newest ODNR model with the swing away and adjustable cooking grate. Sounds like a small feature, but it is actually amazing compared to all the others. This site seemed like it was twice as big as the others. When we plan our trips for the summer, we usually prefer going somewhere new each time. We have a limited number of places we put on our return trip. This one has made it to number 2, behind Kelly's Island and Maumee Bay. We would highly recommend!!!!
This summer my family has went to many campgrounds and by far Delaware has been our favorite. The site we were on was set back in the woods. My daughter had tons of fun exploring the woods connected to our site. We did not swim due to it being in the 60s and rainy during most of our stay but we did go look at the beach it was very clean and appears well cared for. The bathroom on our loop was older def in need of some updating but it wasn’t a big deal.
The campsites were small, very uneven and dirty. We saw seasonal campers with four and five cinder blocks holding up one corner or another. The sites were so small that a “lakefront” site was more accurately called a “lake” site.
The check in staff person was incredibly rude and offered no map, no directions, no help whatsoever. The gate person was somewhat better but with five distinct campgrounds and over 600 sites, no map is unacceptable.
Don’t buy firewood at the marina—you are better off driving around Mohican and stopping along the road where local landowners are offering better quality for less.
It was somewhat quiet for the number of people and campers packed into such a small area, but if not for COVID, it would have been a very loud with parties. As it was, trucks zoomed in and out of the park all night. No one enforced the closing or quiet hours.
In short, it was all of the shortcomings of a crappy private campground, but your tax dollars and local government fees help to support it.
Never again—we’ll stay at Mohican State Park next time.
this is probably our favourite state park we have been to thus far. we went camping early October in tents. it was cold but it was so much fun. The best thing about this campground is the fact that all the sites have privacy. There are nice trails to walk and the bathrooms are the best I’ve seen at a campground.
This is a very nice campground! Definitely nice for a younger crowd! We hated our campsite rite buy the office, it was super busy and dusty from all the traffic! And the site were small! Loved the boat launch area! Not my favorite place, but I’d stay again
We stayed in site 174 on the farthest loop from the entrance. This site provided full shade all day long. The pad was pretty even so not a lot of leveling to do for our a-frame camper. The pad was easy to back in to and we had plenty of room to pull our truck forward. The site has 30 amp and 50 amp and our 30 amp was not working. We notified the park staff and they responded quickly to come out and fix it. The site had a great fire ring and lots of space for chairs, an ez-up, pop-up bathroom tent off to the side and it probably could have held 1-2 tents. There were trees close enough to set up 1-2 hammocks as well. The park staff came out it seemed to be every 3 hours to spray the water fountain in the middle of the turn around. There is a showerhouse in the middle of the loop, not a far walk or you could drive as there were a few parking spots nearby. The showerhouse had plenty of flush toilets and sinks. There were three showers that had doors, but it was just one space and no bench inside your stall. There were plenty of hooks, but you could get your items wet if you weren't careful. There is a bench outside of your stall and there is a curtain that separates you from the toilets and sinks. Not the greatest changing area if you are shy. You could tell it was the weekend as the bathrooms were a little messy, but I've seen way worse. There are also two dumpsters outside the showerhouse for trash. Watch out for the masked bandits (raccoons). They were not shy at all and we had to chase them off from our campsite. Do not leave out any food or trash, they will get into it. There are lots of trails (we found a lot of mushrooms!), a beach, playgrounds and a frisbee golf course. The mosquitoes were really bad this weekend, but we had been there last year and didn't have any issues.
Upon arrival friendly staff greeted us. Bath houses are clean and well maintained. Our site was not clean and ready. Picnic table looked like it was not cleaned since last season and the fire pit was full of rubbish. Had campers behind us who played music so loud we couldn't hear each other talk. I asked the gentleman to please turn it down and they did slightly. Another camper also asked them to turn it down and again it was very slight. Well after midnight music continued. No park ranger made rounds until Saturday morning and throughout the day.
The lake is gorgeous this weekend and we enjoyed riding bikes and walking the park.
May be back to try again.
Open and almost full on 5/30/20. We stopped for one night on our way from VT to CO. Tho they messed up and double booked our site (a really nice one on quieter waterfront side) we were able to get another waterfront one by marina. I would say this is a popular seasonal site for many. Many pontoon boats and kayaks on the lake. Restrooms were fine with free shower. Had electric at our site, not water. Shared water very close.
