Scioto Trail is a nice campground. We camped three times this summer and fall. The set-up is good. There are at least three water spigot, and they are easy to get to. Makes you feel like you're camping in the woods, not at a commercial campground. Recommended.
We chose to camp at Scioto Trail State Park because of it's proximity to Salt Creek Kayak Adventures. While I had hiked at Scioto Trail in the past, this was our first visit to the campground. The primitive section is located far from the electric sites, which is desirable for us. It's also a walk-in campground, which wasn't really made clear when making reservations. That said, they do allow you to drive your car to your site for loading/unloading, which was super helpful since we weren't planning on a walk-in site.
The campground is a little confusing. Sites #64-68 are not at all what we were expecting based on the map on the website. They are all on one strip of land, and you basically walk through other sites to get to your own - which is why they don't allow you to keep your cars here. #68 is all the way in the back - we were on #67. But the sites are just beautiful. They are all decent sizes and well shaded by very tall trees. We loved our site, but I think we'd opt for #68 next time, as it's the last one in the line of sites. There are no showers and pit toilets, which weren't bad at all. The campground is also really, really dark, especially since the electric sites are in a totally different section of the park. Take a walk up to the parking area at night to check out the stars as there are too many trees to really see the sky from your site.
Our family loves Scioto Trail. It is small and beautiful, very rustic. We love the naturalist, Amy and the kids love the stream that runs through the park. The lack of shower houses might turn some off. The lake is beautiful and the fishing is good.
We are staying at Scioto Trail State Park. It has been raining nonstop for 13 hours. We still managed a one mile hike with the kids. The trails we used were fantastic. The campground is clean and not busy. There is a nice size pond for fishing. Our only regret is we didn't realize there was no shower house here.
