Great smaller park, (1,000+acre) with easy access to the interstate. My Grandsons Love that the water is clearer than most lakes here in Ohio!! The campsites wrap around the lake, so most of them are Very close to the lake!! Since it is a smaller lake, there isn't any high speed water activities to interrupt your fishing! Great for kayaking, which you can rent at location. There is a playground and a basketball court. And a nice icecream shop with reasonable prices, right at the entrance.
Wolf Run is a nice-ish camp ground. If you're just looking to chill at your campsite, it'll do. If you camp with the goal of hiking and swimming, I would look elsewhere.
The state park really doesn't have a ton to offer in ways of entertainment. The swimming beach is small and in direct view of a road that runs nearby, it's nothing to write home about. The hiking trails are not well maintained, and there are really only two.
The campground is passable. The initial site we booked for Memorial Day Weekend was super muddy, very small, and did not have a picnic table. I was able to switch to a different site fairly quickly over the phone. The site we moved to was bigger and slightly more secluded. Sadly our fire ring was a safety hazard as it was riddled with holes at the bottom. It also had a very small grate for cooking, meaning we had to build the fire up against the side of the ring in order to cook. The majority of people who camp here are using generators, so it can get a little loud in some of the loops at times.
I will note that it is possible that the campground would have received some updates before opening for the season if COVID had not hit.
Not a lot of sights but very pretty. Some gorgeous trails around the lake. Tiny camp store. The first night someone came in & took our spot we reserved. Thankfully they left early the next morning. The trails were semi-busy until you got back in there. A lot of people were fishing in the dam area for the trout release.
The campground itself is lovely, with some lakeside camping. Family friendly and pretty quiet even during busy weekends.
The downfall is the cleanliness of the facilities. Bathrooms and showerhouses are somewhat neglected.
Most people drive to the swimming area, however there is a walking trail. They dotrave kayaks available to rent, a nice way to kill a couple hours as the lake is beautiful.
Weekend get away with the wife and dog. Pet friendly park. Walking path to the lake which was very close. Would advise to visually check the sites, due to terrain which is rolling.
Wolf Run State Park is in Caldwell, Oh right off Rt 77. No big cities round here. Lots of Ohio farmland countryside though.
There is a nice size lake in the middle of Wolf Run so everything is based around it. Watch the traffic when driving from one area to another.
The campsite takes up a small part of the park and there are plenty of activities in addition to water sports.
The campsite is basic, though about half the sites are with electric. There are latrines located conviently in each area and a showerhouse with laundry facility. The sites are nice size, close together and not a lot of tree cover. Well maintained and run by knowledgeable staff.
Beautiful, peaceful woodsy area with lots of trees and wildlife to watch. There is swimming, fishing, boating, hunting and plenty of trails. About 140 campsites but only half with electric.
