This was a good overnight stop on a cold windy night through Ohio. Front desk people were extremely friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were very clean and hot shower. We would stop again as a pass-through Campground. Level sites.
Many level pull through sites. We were just passing through so the ability to not have to unhook was important to us. Showers and bathrooms are very clean and up-to-date. At $40, it was about $5 more than we are used to paying as we travel full time. Particularly since amenities like the pool are unusable due to weather. Very friendly and efficient check in.
We were only able to stay 3 days. We will return!!! Such a nice setting. We could hear the river rapids from our campfire. The visitor center ranger, Al, was exceptional!!! There’s so much to do in the area.
We stayed on two different sites over 5 days. A very busy park, lots of reservations.
The gate house was closed so we managed reservations by phone. Nice bathrooms and showers. All options available FHU, WE, primitive. Beautiful mountains and Lake. We visited the Grand Canyon of PA during our stay.
Thank you to Jay and Kelly for a wonderful 10 day stay at their campground. So much to do in the area, hiking, waterfalls, good eats, Bear Town Rocks, beautiful forests… We loved our campsite right on the small pond that is stocked with Carp and Koi. The seasonal campers made us feel so welcome and included us in trick-or-treat, potluck and a fun dance complete with DJ. Being able to use Passport America for a couple of days helps to make it affordable. Showers were clean and hot. Nice store, laundry. This is not a fancy campground but one we’ll love to come back to!
When we discovered that Shenango Corps of Engineers park had closed early in September, we needed to find a home right away. This met our needs very well. Despite the fact that it’s not our normal kind of camping, in the woods, it was very comfortable. It does not feel crowded, sites were grassy and all utilities worked well. Owners are very nice people and are working to continually improve this property they just acquired a couple years ago. The park is largely seasonal but has several spots for drop-in RVS and tents. Big rig accessible. We reserved for 2 nights, stayed 3 and would return. Bathrooms were clean if a bit unique with a rope and pulley system of water delivery to the shower head. I appreciate that the owners have a desire to keep prices steady but wonder if consideration might be given to some kind of a discount such as a rate for more than two days, passport America, AARP, a weekday discount, a weekly rate ….. $35 is about five dollars more per night more than we typically pay.
This was an overnight stay on our way to Pennsylvania. It would be a bonus for big rigs as the pull Throughs are flat and easy to get into. We tend to prefer a back in because it usually gives us a bit more protection on the backside. Unfortunately, the site we were assigned took three blocks to level up, the the power was on the wrong side and our picnic table was in the back area of another camper. The bathroom was nice and close and handy. Some great effort has been made to make it attractive with two-tone tile but that is all overshadowed by the amount of spiders and bugs. I am a full-time RV year and shower all over the United States and this was one of the buggiest ever. The majority of this campground is for seasonals. There are some very nice seasonal lots with a small pond in their back Yard. The owner was very friendly and helpful on the phone. Serves a variety of needs.
This is a campground of largely seasonal campers. The small but adequate campsite that we were assigned served us well for a two day layover in our travels. Friendly park staff, shower, small lake for fishing. There were people swimming although it looks very inviting with the amount of weeds in the water. Nice general store with hand dipped ice cream. Near town of Coldwater which has everything you would need, including a theater on a rainy day. Electric and water. $30
Nice campground and spacious campsites. Lots of hiking trails. Boating, swimming. Park staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. HOWEVER since when has solicitation been allowed in a state park. Big event tent set up on one site serving as base for an RV dealer/mfg. 20+sites reserved for gathering of that brand of RV some with brand advertising signs. We pulled in on Thursday and were unable to stay through the weekend because the park was full—-full because of buy up of sites for solicitation. 😡
We spent 10 days here and had a great time. This is a very busy park. Popular with the locals and frequently used for family get-togethers. Noticed a number of sites that had multiple units and cars. Difficult to get a site on a weekend. Nice beach. Great boating. Super hosts who bend over backwards to accommodate all, almost to a fault. Witnessed people taking advantage of their kindness--checking out late, parked where they shouldn’t be, using a chair to save a spot for someone,… We will return. Some nice sites on the water.
No power, no water, clean pit toilets, beautiful water view sites, no dump station, LOTS of mosquitos. Hoped to stay a few nights, chased out by mosquitoes after first one.
This is our third time at this campground as we have relatives in the area. Each time we have been very satisfied with the experience. Campsites are adequate, showers are very clean and in good repair, always grateful for a washer and dryer. Front desk staff is efficient. Wood for sale. Small store in office area—ice cream! The only thing I would ask the camp to consider is banning political signs. I was very put off by the trump 2020 full size flag hung by a near neighbor. Escanaba is less than 15 minutes away.
Despite the fact that there are not electric sites, this remains one of our favorite stops. There are water and clean bathrooms. No showers. The lake is beautiful, good for swimming and fishing. The town of Escanaba is nearby with good restaurants and Lake walks. Be sure to take yard guard, some mosquitos and black flies. Nice visitor center at Hiawatha National Forest entry. Hiking trails.
This is a really good family campground in the middle of Michigan. Campsites are spacious and wooded. There is a lake for swimming ability to fish and put in a kayak. Sites have electric with shared water. Campground registration is efficient and friendly. Wood can be purchased at the campground. The small town of Clare is nearby with groceries, ice cream, restaurants and gas.
Out week long stay at Hocking Hills State Park was very good. Showers were hot and the women’s restrooms were very good. My husband frequently found the men’s restroom in need of attention, papers and litter on the floor, limited clothing hooks and need some tile repairs. Very much appreciated the non reservable sites that have been continued in Hocking Hills, while discontinued in many Ohio state parks. The close proximity to a number of interesting small towns and restaurants was enjoyed. Great proximity to many, many amazing hiking trails. We would return!
Nice campsites! Clean, hot showers. So much to do in the area! 23 sites are set aside as walk-ins. If you arrive on a Thursday or early Fri., you are likely to score a site in this very popular park. Pool. Logan nearby with good food and shops.
Spacious site. Well maintained park. Clean, hot shower in north Campground. Lake is good for fishing, marginal for swimming. Great people at registration. Friendly and helpful host. Some good restaurant choices nearby.
