We booked 6 months ahead and were here for Oktoberfest Zinzinnati 2019. We were in a full hookup back in on a wide concrete pad with good wifi. OTA TV was very good. Heard some truck noise, but it was not that bad. Quite on the weekend. Great FMCA benefit. - Bob and Inga

The park is small but adequate. There are no facilities available. It’s conveniently located to the main roads. Our complaint is that somewhere nearby there are trucks backing up and dumping all night long. They beep- beep going back, then dump their load and shake the back so the back flap bangs a couple times. Then the next truck comes in and it starts all over again. Of the 5 nights we spent here Saturday night was the only quiet night. We asked about it at the office. They said that other people had been asking too, but they had no idea what it was. - Meme508

Great place to park when you are exploring Cincinnati. Not close to much of anything but cheap and easy if you are a member of FMCA. - Johnny xxxxx

The rate reflects weekly rate divided by 7. This is a long-term park and not really meant for a weekend outing. That being said, when one wants to visit the area for 3 or more nights, the weekly cost of $135/week becomes equal or better than 3 nights at a normal commercial campground at $45/night. We were greeted by the park host on a golf cart as soon as we pulled in. He escorted us to our site, helped me move the picnic table, and then gave me advice on getting into the site. The sites are state park-ish. Electric and water hookup. Some sites are more spacious and typically have long-term residents on them. Riverside sites are all taken, so don't expect one of those for a weekend. There are some really long term units there, but they are are few. No shady characters. Most campers are full timers up north for the summer. There is a dump station near the exit of the park. There is a picnic table and a fire ring at each site. Downtown Cincinnati is about a 15 minute drive from the park. - WineStream

We rented a space for the month for $410. The driveway is gravel, the camp site is grass/mud, and you are required to mow your own grass. There is no bathhouse or sewer. The sites on the side that we stayed apparently have a known electrical problem, especially when the camp is busy. We were never told this and we could only run the refrigerator. Our son is disabled and we need full electrical services at all times because he is ventilator dependent and you aren't allowed to run a generator during quiet hours. We had leave our RV and come home during the holiday weekend due to insufficient electricity services. The grounds are very wet due to rain and lack of gravel or paved sites. If you are traveling with an elderly or disabled individual I would not recommend this camping experience. The parks employees are not honest about what sites have adequate hookups. Another couple was moved an hour before we were told our electricity would be an issue for the entire weekend despite prepaying for the month. Only rents by the week or month and no chance of being directly on the river. Those sites have been reserved for years. So what small amount of time we actually were there we spent looking at the back of 5th wheels. People also park in your designated campsite and that seems to be allowed. - charliepom

We spent five days on a full hookup 50 amp site with a concrete patio. The site had ample room for our 35' and tow. The utilities were convenient and there was a reasonable amount of space between sites. This section of the park looks newer as there were only small trees at the site. Trees line the back of the sites though permitting evening shade. The center road offers concrete pull thrus. We paid $41 for an hour pontoon boat rental and rode around the lake. It was VERY convenient to all things Cincinnati as it was 3 miles S of I275 inside the loop. For a park inside a huge city, this park felt like you were in the country. One complaint: There is an older 30 amp section too. We moved to this area during the weekend. The sites were closer and we had a rude neighbor that had eight cars spend the weekend. Half of these visitors parked on our site.Next time I will tell the VIP about excessive neighbors who don't respect other peoples space. - Tammy7

The rate quoted above is the monthly rate of $550 divided by the 30 days we stayed. We made reservations here to spend time in the area with family. The managers are very nice and accommodating and we communicated with them several times before arrival. The park itself is not very nice at all. It's mostly old mobile homes and some semi-permanent RVs (ranging from 25-year-old trailers with junk around to a half-million dollar tag axle diesel pusher). We were originally assigned to one site, but "... someone moved in to that site" before we arrived. I can only assume that it was preferable to the site where we ended up (anything would be, though). We are full-timers and I'm pretty good at backing our 36' fifth wheel with a crew cab, long bed, dual rear wheel truck into tight spaces - but this is the tightest space I've ever had to deal with. With the trailer on one side of us having a slide extended a two feet over our pad to a work van parked at the very edge of our extremely narrow space on the other, I had to rock back and forth in the narrow roadway and put the truck and trailer at almost a 90 degree able to get in... but we got it done. The tiny spaces and dumpy environment aren't the things we dislike the most, though. Directly across the fence behind us (the back of the rig is 4 - 5 feet from the fence - not counting the bike rack) is a furniture factory. The noise pollution is TERRIBLE! The low frequency droning noises I can handle, but the high frequency constant squeal and a very noisy compressor that cycles about every minute has caused me to get out my earplugs to sleep at night. We didn't see much of the other park residents, but those we did see were very nice. There aren't many RVing options in the Cincinnati area. The county parks are seasonal, have stay limitations and and have poor availability. To get something else, one has to go 45 minutes out of town and pay $40/night. - Second Chance

Absolutely beautiful setting for this large recreational park on the lake. It depends on what you are going there for (fishing, riding, camping) but our experience as a CAMPER was not our favorite. Rolling hills make it very difficult to find a spot on level ground; even many tents looked tilted on the slope. A majority of the narrow paved pads are sloped and are placed at challenging-to-access angles. The (only) "bathhouse" is located up on the hill, and was a good 4-5 minute walk from our campsite, and we were at one of the closest "improved" sites. Most people drove their cars to get there. Relatively clean, but only tolerable, as far as facilities are concerned: 3 toilets, 2 sinks, and one large ugly shower with a broken handicapped seat and water that drained poorly on an uneven floor. AJ Jolly is a beautiful place, but for camping itself, it was not much more than adequate. - LooziAnna

Stayed in the equestrian campground due to size of camper (35 ft.) but did not have horse. Large level gravel space with water and electric. Lake was short distance from site so easy access with kayaks. Road bikes around park without any issues. Very peaceful and quiet setting. Fishing, golf course and wonderful environmental education center on site. Local winery very short distance away. - NKyCampers

This was our first trip in our RV. This park is very poor. The park is not clean, They have 26 "Improved electric" sites available. The sites are very small - almost too small for a pop-up camper. They are basically small uneven pads on a hill close to the lake. Would be good for a tent but not for any type of camper. The park is gate controlled and if you have visitors they must pay for the vehicle to be on the grounds. There was a boat race on the lake the weekend that we camped. It was very loud and could be dangerous. I made reservations but was not notified of this high speed boat race. The boats started very early and went on into the evening. Park was staffed with what appeared to be high school kids that did not care. - depguy

Beautiful county park with many activities. Wonderful campground - looks brand new. Concrete pads, full hook-ups, LOTS of room for our motorcoach and tow, and easy maneuverability. We were here midweek in September so not crowded. Looks like plenty of room even if it were full. No privacy between sites. Had clear sky for satellite TV. Terrific wifi connection. - Traveling Gnomes

We have stayed at this county park twice. Entry in to the the park requires the purchase of either a day pass or annual pass. There is one loop with full hookup sites including a dozen or so pull-through sites. The sites are level and the pull-through are concrete. The park roads are paved as well. There is a small playground, a lake, and a few other amenities available at an additional costs within the park. - Stranded_In_Ohio

The office staff couldn’t tell us where to fill our propane tank, but fortunately, the camp host was able to answer the question. We stayed next to a couple that had three small barking dogs that started barking as early as 7:00 in the morning, so the morning quiet hours and number of pet rules were ignored at least with regard to that site. Other than the early morning wake up, things were pretty quiet and nice. This is not a commercial campground. The campground is in the middle of a big state park, so any activities would be found at the beach or in the park, but not in the campground. There were no shade trees on our site, and it was really hot. - Morning Star

Thankfully we only stayed here one night on our way home from MI. I don't know how I missed the fact that there was no sewer, so we were a bit surprised when there wasn't any. Without sewer, I felt the price quite pricey. The electric worked ok but some of the wiring looked a little unsafe. We didn't use the cable. The wifi worked quite well The lady who I assume was also the owner was very nice. The road in and out was pretty tight. All in all, it wasn't a bad place to stay for a night, but not a place I would want to stay for any longer than that. - MrsSqrl

Stopped here for 3 nights to see some sites in the area. Completely missed the fact that there are no sewer hookups. My bad. There are many seasonal or long term stayers with that lived in look that detracts from the appearance of the park. The water and electric in our pull through site was solid. The roads inside the park are a bit tight for a big rig. You check-in at the office then drive to a 180 degree circle turn around to go right back from whence you came..... doable but tight, especially if you are towing. Pull through sites are plenty long enough but a bit lacking in width. You will get to know your neighbors. I know they cant control the weather, but the place is near a creek and there is evidence of continued water problems throughout the park. Lots of soft, muddy areas near the sites and roads that make it difficult to avoid even when walking. Not a terrible stop, but for the price, I expected better. - Pjoe

Online reviews of this park were really good, so I was glad she could fit us in for the weekend. When we arrived we had to pull up to the office to register and there is really no parking lot. Our site was behind us on the narrow road so we had to take their turnaround circle which is a little tight for a 42 ft fifth wheel. When we got to the site we found for that price we had no sewer hookups so if we wanted to dump we would have to go through the turnaround again! Music was going late into the night Saturday, til about midnight. Sites were tight, very close together, so close that when someone pulled in next to us it killed our dish TV. No room to swing a big rig when park is full, which it was both nights we were there. We were thinking we were going to have to try to back out, but found out our neighbors on both sides are also pulling out tomorrow. Also the site was just long enough for our RV and we had to park our truck on a lot about 150 feet away. They had cable but only 9 channels, most local so we weren't at all interested. People were very nice and considerate and the great thing is the Ark Encounter is only 19 miles away! Many full timers back in the park but they save the front for those of us who come and go. This place is surrounded by woods and many sites back up to the creek so that's nice. - overogal

A very nice state park with even a swimming pool ! Close and accessible to seeing the ARK and Corvette Museum Staff, was very nice. The only downfall was that the access road to get there was too winding. - Linda3515

A very nice State Park, with a good pool, small herd of Buffalo and a small museum. I'm here for the NASCAR race so the location is excellent. Sites in my section are no level -- two wheels are off the ground and front is considerably higher than the back. 30 amp power with my adapter is a challenge, outlet is loose so the cord wants to fall out. All that said, this is a real gem. Wonderful trails, the park people are all very helpful and I'd stay here again in a heart beat. - BWolfAR

Very pretty and lots of mature trees. We were in space 55. Needed 100' water hose to reach water supply. Poor layout for that. Only 30 amp electric. Restroom floors dirty. Most sites were paved but not very level. - Eric & Michelle Newton

I stayed here over the summer and have to say the staff could not do a better job. My only complaint is the freeway noise and the WI-FI needs improvement. - AZ Jeanne

This is our fourth time staying here over the last several years and with each stay the campground keeps improving. Just recently they resurfaced the main inner roads and they look and ride great. Very friendly staff. Very clean restrooms/showers. A little out of the way off the Interstate but all things considered it's worth it. Will continue to stay here again on our north/south/north trips. - OSUbob

The sites for short term stays are directly in the sun. Not a tree at all. Some attempt at a patch of grass. There are ducks wandering the front campsites away from the lake. Full timers dot the lake. This is really for those people. The rules state they will charge you if they have to clean up after your dog. The ducks droppings are apparently fine. I would give this a miss. Looks unkempt all in all. Certainly not value for high rates. As well you are very close to neighbor. - Georgiajan

Very pretty park on the outskirts of Cincinnati. Judging by the difficulties I had finding dates that had availability, I'd venture to guess that this park is relatively popular in the summer months. The only downside to this park, and it's only going to have an impact on a very few people, is that if your rig is more than 40' long, you're going to have a bad day. We measure just a tad over 40' and when they say the pad is 40' long, they're not joking. If you're clocking in at 45', you may want to look elsewhere. Other than that, there's lots to do in the park itself. We came in on Sunday and it was relatively deserted, so biking was uneventful. There's also a putt-putt course, but at we managed to come into town during a heat wave, we passed. Everything seemed very well maintained from the sites to the picnic tables to the playgrounds. Verizon data service was above average while AT&T's service was somewhat disappointing. The park is relatively shady so satellite service might be somewhat difficult to obtain if your dish is stationary. We were able to pick up a handful of OTA channels from Cincinnati and Dayton. All in all, this is a great park that we'd happily stay at again: if we can get in, that is. - PirateMonkey

This is a gem of a state park. However, that said for a FHU it is not as inexpensive as most state parks that we have stayed in. There are other electric/water sites that are less expensive and from what I observed they are always full. This is not a hard park to get to, however, make sure if you are using a GPS to enter the address of the campground and not the park administrative office. The two are miles apart and there is no direct road between the two. We found out the hard way. The park is neat and well groomed with no trash lying around. Every time a site is vacated someone is around within an hour to police it and tidy it up. The roads leading in and within the park are paved and in good condition. Customer service was so-so. If you didn't ask, no information was offered. Even when you asked it was hard getting more than a really basic, simple answer. Our site was paved, back in and easy to get in, and perfectly level. It was just wide enough for our rig and just long enough to park the car parallel to the rig in the front. All utilities were convenient to the wet bay. Our site was partially shaded. Verizon cell and MiFi worked well. DISH had a clear view of the southern sky. We would stay here again. - William T

Miami Whitewater Forest Campground is located in the largest park in the county park system. The campground is clean and the new shower/restroom facility was also clean. The park is great and there are plenty of things to do outside the campground. While there, the campground was completely full. I camped in a tent, but agree that the campground is not the best for large campers and motor homes. The spaces are small and packed close together and many are hilly. My main complaint was what was already stated in a previous review. The campsites were all overloaded. 2-4 campers or tents per site with large groups staying in them in addition to having "visitors" come by in the evening. Both Friday and Saturday night, the campground did not quiet down until after 1 am. Saturday I walked by one site that had at least 30 chairs with adults in them and a hoard of children as well. Bright lights, loud music and loud conversation. Not peaceful, not quiet. - Willajean112

Getting to this park requires good advanced mapping and intuition; there could be more directional signage. This park is not suitable for long 5th wheels and motor homes. The park map does not show the steep grades and very tight curves with large trees close to the narrow one-way road. Very few sites are level. Bring plenty of blocks. It was very difficult to back into my site due to the trees and the location of the electric post. Plan to drive your rig to the water station to tank up before backing in and setting up. Heavily wooded. Only electric hook-up. Camping is a long way from the rest of the park which has no place for swimming. The bath house is new, very clean and free. - Osita5

The campground is in a nice park facility with a great play area for the kids located down by the lake. It is not real close to the campground though.
We also had to purchase an annual county park pass to be able to get in ($10.00).
The reason for the average rating is very few of the sites are level. Many of them are slanting downhill so it is hard to get level.
They could use a little better signage directing those who do not live here to the campground and check in. We drove past it the first time and had to call to find out where to go.
Also, even though they have a maximum camper limit of 6 people and two tents (or one camper unit and one tent) per site there were several that had many more than that, one having at least 18 people in it and one with 4 tents.
Their dump station is also located on a hill making it hard to get completely empty.
It is a very busy park on the weekends with lots of tent campers - 3 to 6 tents per site.
I would recommend this campground in certain areas only and during the week if possible. - prstlkid
