For a fairground this place is pretty good. They have some full hookups, some with electric and water, and some with only electric that are more in the center of what I would assume is the fair activity, like the midway or near the animal barns. We had water and 50-amp electric, and pulled through to take up two spots with our 45' fifth wheel and HDT. Not a problem the way they're laid out. I spoke with the ladies in the office at the grandstand the next morning and they said that taking up two spots wasn't an issue. There wasn't anyone else around, and with 600 total spots.... it's self-service, pick your spot and leave the money in an envelope. The showers are in the campground/Speed building. They were pretty awful. They looked clean and had really good water flow, but the water didn't drain so even if you shut it off when you weren't rinsing you were still standing in 2-3 inches of water. Fortunately the cement rim kept it from overflowing into the rest of the bathroom, which was fairly clean considering it's near a horse barn. We think there might be another bathhouse with showers, but with the park empty the only one open was the one closest to the horse barns, where people were pretty active with the trotters. It was fun to see them working the horses. The sites would be very close together (and are designed for much smaller trailers) if they were all full, but the only time that happens is during the fair. We had the whole area to ourselves, and it was wonderful with all the green grass and huge shade trees. Plenty of room to pick a site with or without trees, as you choose. There's no non-fair camping during the month of August. No reservations, just come on in. You can ride your bike around the fairgrounds, lots of paved roads, and of course there are the horses. Rustic accomodations, no picnic tables or fire pits, but it rained most of the time we were here anyway. We would stay here again if we're in the area. - Denise and Glenn

Keep in mind this is a Fairground, but large area for walking or riding your bike. Grass Sites, some full hook-up, some with just electric. Close to grocery and fast food. Great Steakhouse across the street "Fairlawn Steakhouse". We stayed for a month. Eldora Speedway is maybe 30 minutes away. Dayton, Ohio is about 30 minutes away also. There is a "Kitchen Aid" store downtown where they sell mixers & small appliances. If ever around the area I would stay here again. - RVman3252

We camp here every year to attend the Southern Ohio Forge & Anvil (SOFA) Blacksmith convention. This is a large county fairground with an active horse training facility and trotter track. It's a historic property and fairly well maintained. Camping with electric-only service is offered in the front and back fields. The front area has some road noise, the back section is quieter. Both areas are big rig accessible. A few paved sites with shared water connections are also adjacent to the grandstand, but those spots are not offered through the SOFA conference. Camping during SOFA is quite crowded. Shared electric service for 4 sites is provided on poles placed throughout open grassy areas, so everybody crams around the poles and you're right on top of each other. Tent campers also take up precious electric sites making the front area a real jumble, even though there's plenty of other fields to set up a tent. If you need electric service, there's more room to spread out in the back section than in the front. For a big gathering like SOFA, we're glad to have camping provided, even if it's a tight squeeze. And plan to come early if you want an electric site at SOFA-most spots are filled by noon on Friday! - Flying Mantis

This is a lovely park on the shore of a small lake. It is well maintained and the camp sites are well maintained. The pads are paved and level, the utilities are placed correctly, and there is decent separation between sites. On the downside, the pads are perpendicular to the access road which makes backing in a challenge. There is no vegetation between sites to provide any visual separation. The sewer connection is just an open hole to put the hose into, so there is a problem with sewer smells. There are a couple of hiking trails, but not much else in the park. There is one loop with full hook-ups. Most sites have only electric. There is Wi-Fi in the park, but it is sometimes pretty slow. They do have laundry facilities at the bathhouse. - winnie1

This a great state park on a lake with lots of shade. They have walk in campsites so you do not need a reservation if you come in at the first part of the week. Check to see if there is a festival near by- that could complicate matters. It is always best to call ahead. Restrooms could use some updating but they were satisfactory. The great feature is the shade on a hot summer day. Fill up with water at the entrance. This is one of our favorite campgrounds in Western Ohio and we try to come back here when we are in the area. - Skip Pratt

Midweek stay. Nice spot near inlet. Surprised that premium electric spot yielded an electric only hook up. Camp hosts nice. Camp was clean with ample resources, trails, scenic water ways, canoe rentals, kids play area, cornhole games, sand volleyball net, etc. Worth a repeat visit. Plenty of small towns, Fort Recovery and other venues to visit. - Jitime40

This campground is literally in the middle of a cornfield, however, there is plenty to see and do both in camp and the surrounding area for the entire family. The Camp is very relaxing and straddles a meandering creek ending in a pond that offers fishing. There is a full service RV dealership and store on site. Most of the campers are long term tenants. - T E Barnhizer

Nice campground. No full hookup sites. Quiet campground. You get to pick what site you want. There is a nice creek running through the campground. Good campground for group camping or family reunion camp out. - onetwin

This park is only a few miles from the highway, but as stated you feel like you are out in the country. There are back-in sites around the edges of the large, grassy well mowed campground with a curved slightly sloping layout. There is a section of pull-through sites that are laid out on slight slope. The sites are well kept, but full hookups are only available on a small number of sites. The positive side was the bathrooms are air conditioned, almost too cold in fact, but they needed the floor painted and spruced up. Hubby said his shower floor was bare concrete, not spic and span but the toilets and sink were clean. This was a nice one night stop on our way home. - Maga04

Management does not think through RV placements. They clump RVs together when there are multiple empty sites with the same amenities. We stayed for 6 nights and saw this consistently. They are full during weekends but they can think through weekday customers more strategically to make them comfortable. Pull through sites are very tight. Don't plan on using the fire ring. They are too close to neighbor's RVs. Electric, water, and sewer are right in the middle of neighbor's site. Significant road noise from I-70 since campground is right next to it. WiFi must be logged in every hour. Signal is generally strong but drops frequently. Many rules but they are not enforced. Our neighbor had two pit bull mixes even though they are not allowed. The dogs were tethered outside a lot. There were at least two dozen poop piles that were never cleaned up even after it was brought to staff's attention twice. They allowed dogs to mess in our area but didn't clean it up. We could not leave windows open due to smell. They had multiple propane tanks stored outside along with fencing, tubs, and trash. They appeared to be the only permanent resident in the park. This place is ideal for children and families who will spend minimal time in their camper. This is the second time we've stayed here and had bad experiences both times. We won't be back. Unfortunately, the Dayton area has limited RV options and most, like this one, will fall below your expectations. - budm108

We arrived the second day of the season. Due to an unlevel site, we requested a move. Staff responded quickly and we we moved. The manager was great in facilitating the move and came to our site to loosen a very tight sewer cap. Thanks! Roads were fine for us but might be tight for larger RVs. Pool was not open but is large and looks very nice. Restrooms very nice and modern. - sp123

The park was very crowded during our visit, but it was a Friday night and they had special activities planned that drew a large number of campers. This park is spacious and clean, with easy access. As with all KOA's, the price is somewhat expensive (even with my KOA membership), but you get what you pay for. The facilities are very nice, with lots of things to do (especially if you have small children). Both the Wifi and TV service were good. Our site was basically level but could have used some more gravel (mud). Unfortunately, we had some loud neighbors that were partying until nearly midnight - it would have been nice if someone from the park's office had monitored this and asked them to tone it down, but no one did. The park's location is near the interstate. - farmboy25

Sites narrow and close. Interior roads narrow! Long way off of I-70 - not really conducive for an overnighter! No wifi. No TV. Very clean. Nicely groomed. Lots of seasonals with well maintained sites. - CSM Carolyn

This out-of-the-way campground is way over-priced compared to most parks in America for what you receive. The price quoted was a weekly rate with discount. For that, we got a gravel site with concrete patio pull thru, picnic table and fire ring. What we did not get was any cable TV, low water pressure, and very poor wifi (owner hot spot) along with gravelly, uneven roads that were very tight for a 42 foot 5th wheel. Most of the people staying here were seasonal with only a handful of overnight sites available. This part of Ohio (near Dayton) has a lack of nice RV parks in convenient areas. - DIXIEDUALLY2013

Arrowhead Campground is exceptionally clean and beautiful. It is well-maintained by the owners who are personally involved in the upkeep and maintenance. I don't think anyone can find a campground as meticulous as Arrowhead. Our only negative as reflected by the rating I gave as being "Satisfactory" is that if you are looking for a one-night, in-and-out type of campground while traveling on I-70, this is not the place. We passed by other campgrounds which were much closer to the highway on our 10 mile journey to find Arrowhead. It's not even in the same county as the others, so don't be fooled by the New Paris designation for it's locale. However, I'm very glad we found it and stayed overnight. It's a superior, but pricey, campground for the casual traveler. - rvrose

Been a couple years I think since I last posted about this campground. This year they added 10 paved 50 amp Pull throughs. Most of these are 100' long sites with plenty of room for rv and toad or Pull vehicle. These 10 electric sites were added over the 2017 winter and were available for use this year. So in total there are now 20 electric sites. The other 10 electric sites are older and tighter and short. The lake is still plagued by lily pads around the edges but dredging is suppose to be on the schedule. The naturalist does a great job with the kids with all kinds of projects. If you are from out of state, there is no access fees like many states charge. If you are from Ohio and have a golden buckeye card for being 60 you can get 50% off during the week if you reserve on line. - knightab

There are only 10 hookup sites, all pull through. All have 50 amp, no water, no sewer available. They fill up quick in the summer months so you need to reserve as soon as you know you are coming.
Lake is within walking distance at about 150 yards but there are lots of lily pads along the east shore. Limited ranger patrol as this is a small lake and they work out of Springfield. The local Game Warden does patrol as well. Now the Watercraft division is seen pretty regular.
Pit toilets only no showers. Dump station with potable water is available.
Good clean power.
Fishing is popular but can be tough fishing, large strippers have been caught here. Osprey are often seen diving for fish along with lots of deer and Blue Heron.
There are no motors: electric or gas allowed on the lake. It is a nice scenic lake to canoe, kayak or take a row boat out on, along with sail boats. Boats are available for rent at the marina and bait store. Lake is 2.5 miles long. You can leisurely kayak around the shore in about 3 hours. - knightab

Super nice campground, so quiet. Only has ten electric sites. In off season not many of the non electric were full. I really liked that the campground was on the water and that the lake was a no motor boat lake. Helped contribute to the quiet. All bathrooms were pit toilets, no shower facilities. Very nice for a few days visit. - naner
