Central State Park is a clean, well maintained campground. We arrived late, so we had to self check-in. The spots are well spaced, giving campers a nice amount of privacy. There are full, partial and primitive spots available. All are nicely wooded and have public bathrooms nearby. All-in-all, a nice area.
The campsites were nice. They clouded full hookups, a picnic table and fire ring. The area was clean and surroundings wooded. Neighboring camping spots were adequately spaced. There were lots of areas for kids to play, including a large playground, a baseball/kickball field and hiking/biking trails.
One big problem, however, was the location of trash dumpsters and cans. There were NO TRASH CANS in the camping area, and the few that were somewhat nearby had signs saying to take your trash to the end of the park road, which was a mile away. This was a problem because we had already hooked up our RV and couldn’t jump in and run the trash that far. Needless to say, whoever maintains the park is being a little lazy and doesn’t want to bother handling trash. Other than that, it was a fairly well maintained park.
One of the nicest campgrounds we ever stayed at! It has everything you could imagine and more. Clean, spacious and beautiful!
The park is located down a long, wooded road on the edge of a beautiful lake. Campsites are adequately spaced apart giving a fair amount of privacy. The bathrooms seem to be clean and tidy, although we didn’t actually use them except to drop off some trash. Very quiet and peaceful with the exception of a few passing boats from the nearby boat ramp.
Very clean and organized. Campsites are stacked on each other. Our neighbor’s fire ring was literally five feet from our RV. Thank goodness they didn’t have a fire while we were there. Lots of families with you f kids riding bikes and playing. Also lots of campers that were staying many days with stuff scattered all over their area.
We stayed here passing through on a Thursday night. The campground was about half-full. Our site was next to the public beach, but it hadn’t opened for the season yet. The site was clean and tidy, and the view of the river was gorgeous at sunset. An occasional boat with loud exhaust went by before dark, but no other distractions besides that. The campground was nestled in the trees and made for a relaxing setting. I would definitely stay there again.
