Pymatuning State Park invites outdoor lovers of all ages to enjoy a relaxing lakeside vacation experience.
In a setting that highlights the mystery of an old swamp forest and the excitement of a water recreation area, Pymatuning camping is one of the finest walleye and muskellunge lakes in the country, and offers excellent camping, swimming and boating opportunities.
the lake is beautiful and the park is clean but the cabins or the one I was in needed maintenance badly.front porch was soft and spongy .the screened in porch had huge holes in the screens and a huge gap in the floor .the picnic table and fire pit were leaning badly. the bedroom had a hole in the wall which should have been a easy fix if anyone cared. the boat rental was nice
Our first time camping at Pymatuning State Park in Ohio. The facilities are older, but kept clean with workers constantly around checking things.
There are 3 sections to camp. We stayed in section 2, site 82 which had a direct view of the lake and was close to the bathhouse and restroom. If you have younger kids, this site is for you. The playground is right there as is the beach.
We didnt look at section 1, but already decided next time, we will go to section 3 as that seemed more shaded and no playground.
The store there had just about anything you could need for supplies at a reasonable price.
We will definitely return.
To check in at this campground, the parking lot is to the right of the campground entry road and you need to walk over to the left of the road to the camp store. This campground offers private shady campsites right on the lake. It's great for boats and kayaks. There were plenty of trees on our site to hang hammocks. The bathrooms/shower houses were clean. There is a small beach at the campground and also a larger one up the road. This is a great fishing spot. Birders will enjoy the variety of species found here including Bald eagles, Orioles, Osprey, Prothonotary warblers, Yellow warblers, Great blue herons, Kingbirds, Kingfishers and many others. We saw other types of wildlife too including: butterflies, toads and turtles. Nearby attractions include Linesville Spillway (feed the carp) and Linesville fish hatchery. There are not a lot of hiking trails on the Ohio side, but we drove around to the PA side and found some. This remarkable campground has plenty to do for everyone.
This campground has spacious sites and there is primitive and full hook up sites available. Pets are allowed in certain sites. Sites are also available along the lake. Access to lake is a plus for boaters and fishing.
Of all my camping trips so far, this is my favorite.
Great stay! Breeze from the lake made hot days cool. Everything is relatively close with in a few mins walk. Some showers facilities updated and nice. Good fishing spots. It’s nice because there are a few sites that aren’t too close together and you have more privacy.
small beach, size of someones swimming pool… need a boat for best fish experience
We camped on the Ohio side of the lake but spent several hours on the Pennsylvania feeding the HUGE schools of carp at the spillway. Where else can grandparents buy stale bread and feed these "Pig Fish" ? The ducks do actually walk on the backs of the fish to battle for scraps of bread !
Campground is located right on the lake. Great access for boaters. Swimming area and playground.
