  • Almost nobody there in Nov. 2016 on Tues-Wed that I was there. Beautiful leaves falling. Trails here are very wide, so you probably don't need long pants. Adjacent state forest has long trails. Even i...  more »

  • My husband and our 3 kids spent 3 days and 2 nights. This was our first time @ the Park and it was really nice. Aside from being a little crowded with TON of RV's the park was beautiful and well-kept. I think people have lost touch with what REAL camping means, but that has nothing to do with Scioto Trail at all! It was Harvest Weekend and several activities were available, food, and vendors. The trails were KILLER!! The bathrooms were checked and maintained several times/day. I had only one issue that did get under my skin, but my husband keeps telling me it's not worth it to ruin my great time: When we arrived Friday we had no time to canoe and paddle boat so we decided we would do it Saturday. We were told that we had to wait until the canoe races were over at 3pm by the man working in the Camp Store/Office. We returned after the races around 5 pm and the same man refused to rent a canoe or paddle boat to us because he said "we close at 6." I was shocked ad speechless at first!!! THIS WAS THE SAME MAN THAT TOLD US TO COME BACK AFTER THE RACES! I offered to pay full price for 30 mins instead of an hour. He refused. It is not a lot of work either. The lake is maybe 50 feet from the office and is huge circle, you just swim around for a while....it isn't like a long river we have to navigate through. Others were out on the water as we were speaking. My kids were crushed and I was pissed! What poor customer service!!! That same man then refused to sell us any firewood because it was 6 pm and he had turned off his credit card machine and told us he had no change but if we hurry and find change for our $20.00, then he would sell us a bundle (which was $4.50) so we lose .50 !!!! This guy was a joke in my opinion.... we were now asking families if they could break a $20.00.... I said screw it BC @ this point I was beyond angry and we got in the car and drove 20 mins out of the campground and bought wood. Later that evening the Game Warden came by and we had a really nice conversation :) He was a very nice man and wanted to know if we got our firewood because he overheard our issue earlier. We told him both the incidents involving the man working at the Camp Store/Office. The Warden did apologize and said "he's new, if it was me I would've made sure you got your wood." I calmed down a bit after talking with the Warden because I felt like we were being treated pretty poorly from a consumer standpoint. ***Point to my rant: Customer Service is VERY important in ANY scenario-the customer is purchasing not only a product, but a experience....please keep that in mind**** Other than that, EVERYTHING WAS GREAT!
  • Visited the Fire Tower with my family and enjoyed Pokémon Go with strangers. Great sense of community.
  • Great camping place and cabins and extremely good hunting
