We stopped here on Thanksgiving on our way South. Self paying, off season was $15. But the restrooms were closed. There were only 3 other sides occupied. Nice little campground in the Appalachian Foothills. Be aware that Google maps doesn't send you to the campground but to a parking lot at the Lake (25 min detour). So make sure you follow the State Park signs.
We went in July. It was incredibly crowded. Many sites were set up as buddy sites so we had to share our outside space with our neighbors. It was tight and awkward.
There is zero internet and no signal which is fine for camping but made finding the weather or maps very challenging.
The roads are narrow and there are a lot of people. We did not kayak the river bc there were just too many people on the river, the water was low due to lack of rain this summer, and when we could see the grotesque adult behavior from the road, we knew we weren't interested in joining that mess.
The site was clean, it is full hookup, and they drive you to your site, which was nice. There is a fire bowl and picnic table for each site and dogs are allowed. Our pull through site was plenty level and accommodated our 33' camper and truck. There is a trail off the campground which is nice. The Mohican State park is full of great trails.
The campground is easy to find and everyone was very nice and the other campers are mostly respectful. There were a few cars and motorcycles that kept "cruising" around which felt strange but was likely harmless.
Photo was during checkout this the empty look. The two rigs in the photo are facing one another which is what I mentioned above.
We love this park! Lots of hiking! Even saw a bald eagle this trip.
Another Thanksgiving spent in our camper and it was so nice and relaxing. There were more campers than a expected this weekend. I guess everyone likes to social distance in there campers too.
Camping in the off season is our favorite time of year. This particular park has potable water on by the dump station and the dump station is open. The water at the full hook up sites are turned off.
No cell service with Verizon at this park.
Our first time camping at Alum Creek this past week (our vacation for 2020) and we were at site G27, at the end of the cul-de-sac. Our pad was very level and the site was a nice size with neighbors blocked by trees (a bonus). We did have a path next to the site, not necessarily for hiking, but a few kids rode their bikes down it. The fire ring was nice and big with a great cooking grate. Only bad thing thing about it was that it was so high off the ground that your wood would burn quickly. We tried to pound it in more, no go, so we added rocks around the outside to help. We had plenty of room for our ez-up/kitchen and our privacy tent to try and stay self contained. We were really happy with the site and would book it again.
We saw a ton of birds, deer, racoon, cat and even a snake in the campground.
The campground had plenty of trails insides itself including a nature trail for the kids (and big kids too). By our site there was beach access for swimming or kayaking (no dogs allowed on this beach). A playground was up by the entrance - a far walk for kiddos from our site. The bathrooms were kept clean and the bathhouse showers were decent as well. They had the bench inside your shower stall which is always a plus.
The campstore was closed during the week, but I understand they have wood and other items (credit card only). But, you can buy wood right down the road from two houses. The one we went to had $5 bags and $10 bags (exact change only). We saw the park staff daily driving around and the Sheriff a couple of days.
You can even order from the local restaurant and they will deliver it straight to your site - the pizza was delicious!
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.
We enjoyed renting a cabin with the family at several different times.
The mountain bike trails are so rugged and fun, difficult for biking. You can hike them too, and they offer nice views of the lake.
The area seems to have a skunk issue at times, and it can get smelly near the cabins.
The cabins have nice fire pits and kitchens have enough space and facilities to make a nice family dinner.
The lake is large enough to boat on and you can do paddling sports there easily.
The park has tennis courts and lots of other recreation: boating, hiking, swimming, biking.
This campground is nice. They are all designated campsites but they are first-come-first serve. They are hike-to only.
It is great for hiking and backpacking camping but if you are looking for car style camping, this is not it.
The trail is challenging terrain, especially when backpacking. It can be very wet and muddy in the spring (or after any rains), so be prepared for that.
The road to it is difficult also (as are most with dispersed camping).
There are no amenities except for an outhouse in the parking lot.
This is pack in/pack out.
Great spot for walk in or hike in camping! There are a couple of campsites at the trailhead and quite a few all along the trail. There is a 5 mile loop or a longer ~15 mile loop that you can hike and there are campsites every couple of miles. The sites themselves are just semi-cleared areas with stone fire rings so it is totally primitive camping. The trails can be a bit muddy after it rains and probably take a long time to dry out down in the valleys. While there is water in the valleys I wouldn’t use it even with a filter. There are signs posted at the trailhead that advise against it plus there is still active oil drilling in one of the hollows (the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars) There is cell service when you’re up in the ridges but there are a lot of dead zones in the valleys and even at the trailhead. Overall, it was a beautiful, quiet place and I only saw 2 other people in the trail while I was hiking out the second day.
Cool little campground. First come first served with no reservations accepted. The sites are clean with picnic tables and fire rings and can accommodate small RVs. There are a couple of vault style outhouses, dump stations and a couple of water stations as well. No electric or water hookups, though. Came on a Thursday and there were only two sites occupied so it was nice and quiet even though there is a bit of road noise from the nearby roads. There’s also an easy 1 mile trail down to Burr Cove proper. The sites are $15 ($10 in the off season when the water is turned off) and you pay at an honor box at the entrance once you pick your spot.
Most of the sites at this state park campground are very small and don’t have much level ground. Even the sites meant for RVs and trailers are right on top of each other. It’s almost like they took what should have been one site and made it two. There’s a handful of sites that offer a little space and level ground for tent campers. You may or may not have a picnic table and fire ring with a grill at your campsite when you arrive. According to staff, people take the fire rings and I guess there’s nothing they can do. Bathrooms were clean. The lake view trail was nice and accessible from the campground.
