Excellent state park in southern Ohio

We camped here in late spring. It was still pretty cold and even got a little snow one night. We were pretty much alone in the campground. The sites were huge! No water in our site but we did have electric. The rolling hills in this part of Ohio are beautiful. There is a huge lake that you can access from the camp ground. It was still really cold when we went but my understanding is that the fishing here is excellent. The restrooms looked brand new. There was a lot of downed trees, mostly ash trees. So this made for easy gathering for firewood. The campground staff was really nice and welcoming. This is a huge state park with a variety of accommodations. Overall excellent place.

Nice place but crowded area

This was our last camping trip of the year and it was cold. The campground was nearly empty so that was nice but the surrounding area was very crowded. There was nearly no area on the lake that didn’t have houses. The campground was clean and well maintained. There are sites that have access to get out on the water via a small canal. Some sites had good shade, and others had no shade. Overall it was a nice place, but the lake seemed very busy, even in cold weather.

Awesome Place

This is my favorite place in Ohio. The state park has amazing views and a ton of stuff to do. The campground was well maintained and was really quiet considering the amount of people camping. This is one of the most popular places in Ohio. The restrooms and the showers were clean as well maintained. Each site has shade and decent privacy. Most sites had electric but ours didn’t have water. There is so much to do in the area. Tons of hiking and beautiful waterfalls and caves. Highly recommend staying here.

Quiet place to get away

We have been here a few times. Really enjoy the secluded sites and the lake. It’s a small campground but it’s clean and quiet. Most sites don’t have water hookups but they do have electric. There isn’t much to do outside of the campground but there is a nice lake with canoe and kayak rentals. Very pet friendly and even has a dog beach.

Not the best for a quiet getaway

I’ll start by saying the staff did their best to provide a fun visit. This was just a weekend getaway and we didn’t have high expectations. There is a lot to do at this campground, but everything is packed too close together. The restrooms were in really bad shape. They weren’t clean and needed updates and repairs. My shower head was missing and water was just spraying out of the wall. Other campers were loud and the noise policy wasn’t really enforced. I wouldn’t go here again.

Small and Quiet.

Can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed this campground. Yellowstone is an awesome place but the crowds can get very intense. This campground was an excellent place to get away from the crowds and relax after a day in the park. Locate about 6 miles from the west entrance, it’s location was very quiet but conveniently located near a town. The staff was professional and very welcoming. There was some construction at the KOA but thy kept it quiet for the most part. The campground has a nice store and a small pizza restaurant. The bathroom facilities were the nicest I have ever seen. Large private bathrooms with showers. They were extremely clean. The staff works so hard to provide a clean and quiet place to stay. I can’t say enough about this place.

Large Campground with everything you need.

We stayed here on a long road trip this summer and really enjoyed it. It is a large campground with a variety of sites. This is a resort KOA so they have a lot of things to do. They offer ATV rentals, car rentals, and bikes. The location of the KOA is within minutes of Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. The area is one of my favorite places that I have ever stayed. There is a ton of stuff to do in the Black Hills and surrounding area. The campground had plenty of bathroom and shower facilities. They were clean and well maintained. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

Great Campground in a beautiful place

This campground is located just out of town in Mackinaw City, MI. The location of the campground is within 5 minutes of downtown Mackinaw, within 1-2 miles of a beach and about 10-15 minute drive of St. Ignace. The campground pretty small and quiet. We camped in a small back in site with water and electric hook-ups. There is one bathroom and shower facility but it looks like they are building another. The bathroom was clean and constantly maintained. The staff was friendly, and helpful. They offer trash pick up each morning and ice delivery. There is a small campground store with some basic essentials. There is some construction going on, but we haven’t heard any equipment and the area is fenced off with a privacy fence so we haven’t seen the construction either. Overall this campground is very nice.
