  • I can see how this state park appeals to families- there is putt putt, a cute general store, an outdoor movie screen, a small beach and paddle boats. But if you don't have kids, I'd find a better plac...  more »

  • As close as this is to Chillicothe (which really isn't that close), Tar Hollow is truly a hidden gem. I love the solitude of it, especially on the North Ridge campground. It's definitely a place worth checking out.
  • Opportunity for quiet camping. Not crowded in late November, but Friday night hunting crowd can be noisy, especially when drinking (even though the law says no alcohol).
  • One of the nicest areas just to take a drive would be Tar Hollow State Forest, which we visited in the fall—highly recommended. Sweeping vistas. There's a pretty reservoir, Pine Lake, with swimming and paddleboats. In the middle of the forest is a giant fire tower that it is possible to climb, although it seemed somewhat rickety and lacking in railings for our two young boys, so we didn't attempt it. While there we were absolutely swarmed by ladybugs.
  • Very nice place so beautiful
  • Beautiful remote area with lots to do must see.
