  • This review is for the Beach. Although I’ve heard great things for the State Park Itself regarding the campgrounds, I haven’t myself been but I can say it looks nice. What I can talk about is the beach, which me and my young daughter enjoyed on a hot summer day recently. My only gripe is the actual beach, the sand, it seemed more like hard dirt. The beach was also small, but google does say 800 feet. The booeys seemed not too far out, but as for in the water the water was pretty shallow, not too dirty and we enjoyed our stay. Initially it seemed to have a lot of visitors but when actually swimming that wasn’t the case at all. We were for the most part alone. If your looking for a nice beach near the Columbus area that isn’t Alum Creek Beach this is your ticket. My daughter wants to go back tomorrow. It’s free, don’t need a campsite. Check it out, you’ll be glad you did.
  • Camping the weekend was lots of fun. Lots of outdoor activities and some very good camping spots. But beware there are some bad ones as well, the spot next to ours was flooded and they still rented to someone. We saw several so beware if its rained over the past few days. I'm sure we will be back after this weekend the whole family had fun.
  • Enjoyed a nice 4 miler by starting at the Mink Run trail by the marina, and the doing the Briar Run trail and the Lakeview Loop getting hooked back up to the Mink Run trail back to our car. It was a nice walk, not major elevation but not flat either, some mud obstacles to pass around and some signs seemed to be missing but overall a very nice way to spend 2 hours. There are many activities at this park, fishing, kayaking, camping, boating. Well maintained and very clean (free of trash etc).
  • What an amazing park and campground!!! It has a little something for everyone! The trails are amazing! The beach is beautiful and a great place to swim! The marina is awesome!!! This park has a disc golf course and so much more!!! I can't wait to go back in peak season!
  • The entrance staff was supper helpful and friendly! I mean I have not had that awesome of service in a long time! The bathrooms were flush toilets and clean and bright. My spouse even took a shower. It was a safe environment. Drivers were cautious of the kids running around. Most of the pull in spots were taken on this rainy fall weekend. We used tents, but most people had plug in pull behind trailers... Which was great for tent campers because no generators kicking on and off all night long. The camp sights were well mowed and free of debris and previous campers ash fires! You could hear the trains and 23 in the distance.
