Tent only sites

The tent only sites were quite sloped. There are several trails to explore, and you can walk down the hill to the lake. Campground had nice showers and was quiet.

Nice little state park

Most lots are gravel with the exception of the handicapped spots. Tomlinson Run has added a few 50amp spots this year 2021. Sites are electric only 30amp with a few 50amp. Plenty of hiking, fishing, paddle boating, mini golf, and swimming in the public pool.

  • pets are welcome
  • nice spots spaced apart

Nice little campground

Our first visit to this campground and we actually found from using this website! We wanted a secluded site and close to Pittsburgh. 

We arrived around 7pm and there was no check in, we drove around for a while trying to find a spot with a fire ring per some helpful campers. There are two…

  • Beautiful sunset!
  • Be mindful if you plan a hike how long it will take you, these trails are harder!
  • Map in the bathroom, didn’t see until morning! Not all sites were open yet.

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…

Incredible!

The Atwood Lake Campground is a true gem in a beautiful area of eastern Ohio! We’ve visited the Atwood region many times in the past but have never camped - but after this visit we’ll be back for sure. The campground is relatively new, with the campground area being completely revamped beginning in…

Primitive Camping is a MUST DO

We loved our stay! We definitely lucked out with one of the best campsites; we were right next to the creek, it was super spacious and super private. There’s rough terrain so typically these sites are walk in but there wasn’t many people so they allowed us to take our truck which was very…

The Quarry

I think the above description written by Katie was a very authentic and eloquent way to describe the ledges quarry park separated from the actual state park. To me the ledges quarry is heaven on earth, anyone is family and all are welcome.. ✌✌also they hold AA meetings there on tues at 6p. 😊

Amenity and Pet Friendly, but Where are the Kids?

Good location for outdoor and city experiences, along with a relaxing getaway. Workers and permanent campers are very friendly with all the amenities necessary on site, including nice dog park. A small campground that didn’t have many kids for ours to play with during our visit. In addition, hill…

Area H is Beautiful

We stayed in Area H site 898 and could not get over the beautiful landscape. The lake and forest trails surround this area. The restroom and showers are brand new and are spacious and clean! The fellow campers were friendly.

There were sites along lakeside that I highly recommend if you don't…

Not free

This campground is not free. It was $28 for a non-electric site and I believe I was told it was almost $40 for a site with an electric hookup. There's a picnic table and fire ring at each site, and mine had a hammock post, but I'm not sure if they all do. There are trails and fishing so plenty to…

Sioux primitive sites at Raccoon SP

The Sioux sites at Raccoon are open year round. No electricity but there is a water pump and the pit toilets are clean and well (solar) lit 24 hrs. Four sites, each offers some privacy though we had the place to ourselves in early March.

The nearby hiking is great. Try the Wetlands trail for a…
