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

Stayed here 1 night while going to a Reds game. Park was easy to find and access. Staff was friendly and the park was very clean and our pull through site had the hook ups well located. As others have said right on the freeway so a little noisy. Only odd item was in reserving and holding a site in advance we had to send a check in, was told they only take credit cards in person. Would definitely stay here again. - A&M RV

We stayed here on our way home from Nashville to NYS. Only going to stay 1 night but added another night because the CG was so nice. The lady in the office was very friendly and informative. Our site was large enough for our 42ft. 5th wheel & truck. Site had pea gravel and level with a picnic table and fire ring. Sites were large and open facing the small lake all roads were paved. I would recommend this CG and we would stay there again. - CaroleRV

This campground offers a full range of campsite choices. The front area consists of pull-through and back in sites, is newer and has full hook=ups and clean, level concrete pads and patio areas. The area has a few trees but is mostly open and sunny. Remainder of the sites are gravel and grass and appear to be mostly spacious and level, some with with views of the water. Most, if not all, have electric only and plenty shade. A single dump station is at the entrance gate. There are great walking / biking trails throughout the park and campsite areas. Overall, a quiet, lovely setting, considering it is within a congested area. Upon arrival, we were in site 14F, a very nice concrete back-in site. We developed a mechanical problem which required us to have to extend our stay for a few days. Although the park was full, the staff worked to find a suitable electric only site (#3). Initial nightly rate was $70 for site 14F, but the fee dropped to $35 when we moved to site #3. Ohio residents, which we are not, get a huge discount. - Revvie

We generally shy away from municipal campgrounds (too tight, inadequate hookups) but this place is a gem. It is part of a very large county park with lots to do and costs $5 a day to come in and out with your car (or $14 for the season). But the campground is excellent, wide, concrete sites, lots of green in between, and full hookups. WIFI is strong, and good satellite reception in our pull through section. Easy to find, well off noisy highways, friendly staff. And close to downtown Cincinnati and all the attractions. We will come back. - alanez

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

Here for a rally nice campground great staff. nice long pull thru site. Campground is 2 sections one in the woods and one down by the river, wide open no shade but lots of room. The directions I had brought me to a 6 ton limit bridge which of course we are WAY over that, had plenty of room to turn around and go a different way, poorly marked bridge until your almost at the bridge, not the campgrounds fault but just warning folks. We tow with a class * tractor with a 21,000lb 5th wheel so we are well over the bridge limit. - DBLR

There are two sections of this campground, one is on the Ohio River and the other is closer to state route 56 (maybe 3/4 of a mile away). The sites near the office are surrounded by apartments. We stayed on the lower level near the river in site 133. It was very quiet and peaceful. There are no trees/shade on lower level but nice sized sites. There were quite a few seasonal campers in the lower level, some nice some I wouldn't want to be around if they were going down the highway. When we arrived we were in a hurry to set up before a huge storm moved in. Got camper level, slides out, Wheels chocked and that's when we realized we had no power at our post. Had enough extension cord to confirm we had power at the site next to ours. Call the office and 40 minutes later two guys arrived in a golf cart with no tools or anything. While we were waiting for them my dog actually sniffed near the post and yelped. Walked over to see what happened and found the clamp on ground rod loose as could be. I'm assuming he got a small shock from touching it. Showed the workers the clamp but they didn't have any to replace it. Their solution was to just leave my camper plugged into the neighbors post and did offer an extension cord. Luckily our neighbors were friends of ours and they didn't mind. I also pointed out the sewer pipe in ground was broken and had no threads to hook onto and picnic table legs were broken. They mentioned they were slowing replacing all of them as most had been hit by the lawn mowers. This campground has so much potential but needs some tlc. On a plus side they're was fresh gravel on the driveway but the lots could use some as most of our site was all grass with patches of gravel. We weren't offered a different site or any type of refund for our troubles. I would return in the future but would be sure to check for power before unhooking from tow vehicle. - Kyle S

Older campground near river. There are 2 sections - one that is original area, second has river frontage. with fewer facilities. Original owners died recently and the daughters are trying to restore the campground to its previous 'glory'. We visited the weekend before the Fourth of July. Many seasonal sites. Mix of pull-thrus and back-ins. Restrooms are minimal but clean and well-stocked. Lots of shade in the older section. Many activities for holiday weekend. Pool is clean and heavily used. Roads are gravel. Sites are dirt and gravel. Staff helpful and friendly. Passport America Mon/Tue/Wed. Would return. - grandma0942

Nice concrete sites. It is a new facility so no mature trees, but it is right in walking distance of the cute little town of Rising Sun. Nice walking trail on the river.
Their ferry from KY side was great, essentially free because they give you a card for the casino for the price of ferry. - LynnDiann

During our stay they offered a buy two, get one free night, which is why the rate was so low. Very nice campground with level concrete sites, picnic table and parking area for your toad or tow vehicle. Cable TV worked great and the utilities were well positioned. They have a very nice fenced dog park which the pups loved. There are a number of pull-through sites but we found the back-in sites to be more private (the pull-through are in the middle of the park). There is a shuttle to the casino if that's your thing, but it's within a short walk. Check-in was confusing, we had to go to the main casino to check-in and you can't get an RV near that, so you'll have to walk or unhook before you park. - sixtires58

Small RV park across the street from the casino. Shuttle to the casino. Bathhouse with individual bathrooms with showers. Laundry (w/d $1.50). Full hookups, level. Spotty cable and weak wifi. No fire unless you bring a covered stand. Parking for a towed vehicle on the site. We spent 5 days here and enjoyed exploring the town and the casino. Clean, well kept newer campground. Very reasonable rates due to October special and Rewards card. - Pankie

Stayed 3 nights in a 43' motorhome. FMCA members only. Great facility. Easy access from I-275- follow web directions. Make reservations online. Check-in, check-out online. Extra day billed directly to CC. Site 11 is level (all sites are level), back-in concrete FHU at rear. Easy to navigate w/BIG Rig. Electric sites are asphalt, side-by-side in front across from dump station. Nice landscaping plenty of room to walk your dog. Walking trail around lake. Close to shopping/restaurants. Good choice when going thru Cincinnati. - RTM

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

Site #61 is a back in and was too steep to level trailer. Host helped us move to site #19 which worked. Sites on top are ok.Sites off Ridge are short and hard to level up. This a very beautiful park . - NE Travelers

Stayed at Big Bone Lick as a base camp to attend the Quaker State 400 in nearby Sparta, KY. The girls stayed back at the park and enjoyed the clean swimming pool. Site 11 was level but did require 75 foot of water hose to reach the spigot. Bathrooms were clean and showers as well. This park is at least 10 miles from any gas, restaurants or shopping so bring what you need. - kbot

The main staff is the only reason this review is as high as it is. The campsite itself was clean, our pull-through site was huge, and the staff was very kind and helpful. My low review, however, is specifically to the pool staff. We were swimming in the late afternoon, and there was a good sized staff of lifeguards of 4 or 5. They must've had friends swimming, because, despite all the guard towers, they all sat in pool chairs on the same side of the pool chatting with each other, their friends in the pool, and taking pictures with their phones. Yes, at least 2 of them had their phones out, taking selfies!
We only stayed there for the night, but the place had a good friendly vibe to it. I'm not sure if we'd stay there again, but I would warn, not necessarily discourage, people from staying there. - JKBuzenby

This is a very confusing place if you are staying only a few nights using KOA. The KOA campground sits in the middle of a Thousand Trails membership campground. The amenities have recently undergone an upgrade with a new pool area and clubhouse. Sections of the TT campground are developed with campers permanently on campsites. The campground is gated requiring a key card to get in after hours.
When we arrived we were met by TT folks who were helpful getting us checked in but wanted to sell TT. The KOA staff forgot to give us a card pass for entry into the park after hours so we were locked out one night until someone could open the gate for us. There is a lot of vehicle traffic with both cars and golf carts.
KOA should consider turning their part over to TT. I don't recommend staying here. - Aldeaux

Very nice Thousand Trails/KOA combination. Well maintained gravel pull thru and back in 330/50 amp level sites. Store, kids activities, pool, fishing lakes (no license needed), lodges. Right off I-70 and HUGE! Many permanents but plenty more sites available. Would definitely stay here again. - teepee51

We stayed in the Thousand Trails Phase 2 section of the joint campground. We had heard that they had made a lot of improvements over the past year and they have...to the new phase 5 section. The KOA and Phase 2 section (which are very close together) the sites were lacking upkeep. A lot of swampy areas and tall grass. Our site had not been cleaned and there was a small amount of garbage we cleaned up. Our fire ring (basically paving stones stacked up) was in disrepair and unusable. We also had a very small concrete patio with a rusty grill (filled with garbage) and no picnic table. We also only could get a water/electric only site due to the number of campers. The electric service wasn't that great but the water pressure was good. Our site was surprisingly level and stable for for our travel trailer and truck. The pool is very nice and large and well kept; the main playground is large and offered a lot of different activities for our two elementary children. There are a few other small playgrounds throughout the campground that seemed to be in good shape as well. The common areas were mowed and the trees looked to be in good shape though most open sites are in direct sun with the seasonal/permanent sites in the shaded areas. The staff were very pleasant at the ranger station and camp store but we didn't see any regularly going throughout the campground. Being a holiday weekend, the place was filled to capacity but there seemed to be enough convenient garbage bins to handle the crowd. - CinciSam

The roads we used had a lot of potholes. The fire ring was a bunch of landscaping rocks in a circle. It seemed that there were a lot of "workcampers" upon seeing all the things around their sites. It's a big park. Our graveled site was fairly level. The way the "ranger" took us to our site, i had to place the water and power cord under my rig. - 1dinky
