Small Site, Good Hiking

Lake Hope was super crowded and the sites felt like they were literally on top of each other. It also was not super clear on which site was which. Our site was on a hill, but there were 2 sites, one at the bottom and one midway down so we had to ask. Luckily both were not booked and they let us use whichever we wanted, so we picked the bottom of the hill.

There were plenty of hiking trails and at the lake you can rent kayaks for the day!

Small Campsite

We had a good time, but it was insanely crowded and the sites felt like they were on top of each other. Our site was a giant hill, so we had to sent up our tents right by our cars. Our fire ring also didn’t have a cooking grate on it.

We did enjoy getting to rent a boat for a few hours and enjoy the lake.

Stunning Fall Views

We love Wolf Run if you are just planning to chill at the campsite. Choose one of the “premium” sites for beautiful lakeside views! It’s pretty quiet and usually not busy.

If you are in to hiking, look elsewhere. There is a trail, but we have never been able to successfully follow it, as it doesn’t seem super clearly marked.

We got engaged on the lake view site in early fall and also spent Halloween weekend there! It definitely adds a spook factor if you are camping that time of year. We were the only ones tent camping that weekend!

Perfect Ohio Oasis

We camp here at the beginning and end of the season where the bars are less crowded and the campground isn’t as booked.

These lakeside campsites are stunning and even the one tucked further into the park have a lot of options too. From open areas where it would be fun to book a couple sites with friends, and some secluded for more privacy.

We always stay lakeside because you cannot beat the view! We’ve stayed 103 and 114!

One hint: be we are on the cliffs of Lake Erie, some sites you might have to hunt for soft ground to stake your tent.
