  • This state park does not require an entrance fee. The leaves had already fallen quite a bit, yet the trails were still beautiful! I like to trail run or jog. The running surface was soft on my aging k...  more »

  • We visited the lodge on a rainy day just because we wanted to take a short road trip. The lodge has seen better days due to age but when you walk inside it has that wonderful welcoming and warm feeling. Very rustic with modern conveniences. The gift shop is small but has some sweet gifts for sale; some are from local artists. There are several nooks in which you can relax and when the weather is nice there is a pool to enjoy. We would like to return for a weekend stay.
  • By far this has to be one of the nicer state parks in Ohio. They do an amazing job of maintaining the park all year. The lodge could probably use a makeover in the next few years but is still a wonderful building. The food in the restaurant is good and the bar food is too notch. I recommend the pizza for sure. Campgrounds are always clean and have an assortment of spots to choose from, a lot of hills though, so keep that in mind. The beach and nature areas aren't quite in their prime anymore, however, they offer a nice day's adventure and are worth the visit in my opinion, more so the beach which is typically clean and peaceful.
  • I took the three grandchildren to stay one night using the family pack during their spring break in mid March. The weather was wintry so we spent the entire trip indoors. It was actually snowing while we were swimming indoors - fun experience. We were greeted enthusiastically by staff on arrival, was able to check in early and we were offered an upgrade of room to a lakeview room with no extra charge - right next to the pool! We entertained guests for dinner at the restaurant so we delayed our family pack pizza until lunch the next day after we checked out. The kids enjoyed playing the games with the tokens although they didn't win much. The food in the restaurant and the pizza were excellent. The room and the lodge were rustic so it had the "older feel" to it which to me was great. The over the top staff with their friendly and accommodating attitudes made up for any perceived negatives. We used to stay in the cabins with our kids many years ago in much warmer weather when we could hike, swim in the lake and outdoor pool. This visit in the lodge was just as much fun for us. We look forward to returning in the future.
  • This is a great outdoor space for anyone looking to get away from the city for a while. There are plenty of hiking trails that aren't very challenging and a large lake to kayak around. Such a perfect place to spend a Sunday afternoon.
  • Has been my favorite state Park since a child when going with grandparents. Worried about lake. Love the camp store employees, campground, cabins (check-out too early😕) Lodge is gorgeous but will not be back for our Easter family get together due to treatment towards myself about my service dog that has been numerous times (new employee asks for papers in violation ofADA Restaurant serves great food and pizza is amazing. All facilities are top notch. Sugar shack is a must in March! Just saddens me we went home because only 1 night available at cabin, she would not allow us at lodge so missed time with TN family that weekend. Mark's a great park director. Rangers are awesome too. Had a great Easter dinner today at lodge.
