Can't beat free

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 building but not so terribly that they can't be used. There are designated wastewater areas to dump grey water. There are no electric hookups.

As others have mentioned, there is a gun range nearby and you can hear occasional firing. Helicopter traffic at night was a slight distraction from the otherwise quiet night I spent here.

There is an easy orange-blazed trail behind site 10 but as of this writing, a there are several downed trees blocking the trail a good distance in.

I'd definitely stay again.

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 need easy access to the facilities.

I have already booked another trip to Atwood Park. Loved it!!

Great we took the horses

Great great campground plenty to Joe we took the horses had a blast

Everything you need for a great experience

Atwood lake os a true gem . Has everything you need. The H campground loops are full hookups, some right on the water. Electric, and primitive sites too. Pets welcome on a leash, a beach and hikng also. Docks available  50' from out waterfront lot. We could leave our camper, take the boat over to the beach and drop off the grandkids and me the Nana for swimming at the beach dock. Good fishing,  clean clean clean. Staff at rhe marina are very helpful. There is a snack shop and a full restaurant at the marina with great food, an ice cream dariette just down the road.  I highly recommend trying it, you wont regret it!

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 to use our 5th wheel so it was not a big problem for us. For the most part, this is a quiet campground and there seems to be some upgrades taking place. Two cute little ponds are at the center of the campground and there is a little store onsite, although it is mostly closed during the off-season. Campers are rather close with smaller lots. All in all, it was an ok campground and we would return again if we needed to stay in that area again.

Nice, clean, and updated!

Piedmont lake campground is one of the nicest, most convenient, and cleanest campgrounds ever say that. This is going to a lot of recent updates including: nicely poured pads for all the campsites, clean and updated restrooms, and some additional cabins that are available for rent. All you have to do is write up, and you’re ready to enjoy the lake!

Speaking of the lake, Piedmont lake is obviously the biggest draw for this campground. Home to some of the best fishing in Ohio, the lake is also a great place to cruise around for a while.

Quick tip: plan on spending some time in the marina. Can you place for a quick bite, or have some fun with the kiddos!

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 campground, but a lot of the RV spots are unlevel up a hill, so backing in would be a hassle. Wouldn't stay here again.

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 up or pulled out for the season. There are several ponds located on the property and trails meander along and around the 100 acre property. We see deer almost every evening. There are a couple hiking trails nearby (Piatt Park and Raven’s Rock) which have incredible rock formations in the gorges. The owners, Lynn and his wife, recently purchased the resort and are very friendly and helpful. They are enhancing the amenities. Shadow lake is an excellent place to camp whether in a tent or a big rig!

Gorgeous

Beautiful setting. Campground has many permanent sites. Clean and spacious.
