I have done everything at this park: camped, boated, hiked, swam, wandered around. It is a great place to get away without having to actually drive away.

We have stayed at Eastfork campground many times. One of the largest campgrounds in Ohio, but only one loop has full hookups. There is a very small camp store, playgrounds, and a shelter for group events. There is a loop for horse trailers and 2...More

Stayed for a week in our fifth wheel. The park is pretty clean but has limited sewer hook ups. It does have a double dumping station that needs some gravel around the dump area so you can stay out of the ankle deep mud (filth)....More
