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

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

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

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

We stayed through the Thousand Trails membership, park was well maintained. The staff was very helpful, and friendly. Our particular site had others nearby, but not intrusive. Weather was good so we did not need the shade. Many amenities, we will stay here again. - Mommaburk

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

When we checked in for our prepaid FHU site we were told that due to the first come first serve policy all that was available was an electric and water only site in Phase 2. No wifi, no sewer, 30 amp. Site was very unlevel gravel. Utilities are ancient. Pool and bathrooms in a different area. Staff attitude is "too bad, we're busy, and we're full of folks with reservations." Never mind our prepaid reservation. Never again. - Craig47

This is thousand trails/koa?? Stayed in koa section that was kind of swampy but close to a fishing lake. Nice pool and playground. Thousand trail section is large with many permanents and golf carts cruising everywhere. - Bjb1775

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 our go-to park for weekends & holidays. C-loop is full hookup but difficult to get reservations. Most sites are a little difficult to back into with a 40' fifth wheel & full size truck. - Duane Denlinger

Campsites are spacious and pretty level with a fair amount of shade in our loop. We stayed at this campground for two nights, Thursday to Saturday. There were virtually no people camping through the week which seemed strange. More rolled in Friday night, but the lake still didn't seem very busy. Brookville Lake has had a problem with toxic blue green algae (there was an advisory during our stay), so it is worth checking into if you plan to swim while visiting. - KyKampers

One of the largest state park campgrounds in Indiana, this park has it all. Hiking, boating, swimming beach and lots of wildlife. I counted 7 red birds in a tree at out campsite one morning. Our site was nice but a tree had been removed and the stump ground out so that part of the site was uneven and had no grass. Full hook up sites go fast for weekends and Holidays so book early all other sites are electric only. AT&T was 2bars and OTA TV was adequate. Visitor center is managed by the Army Corp of Engineers and has an overlook of the Dam and lake. I was told the fishing is very good. - Psi500

Very fun place. Easy pull thru spots, super long, picnic table and fire ring at each site, large yards, FHU 50amp. We paid $235 for the week. Nice pool, pond full of fish, fun activities for kids on the weekends. - R-Gill513

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

Would have given it 5 starts except the WIFI and showers. This is a great campground, and we'll be back for sure. Pros: Cheap, very nice facilities. Full hookup and the best cable TV I've experienced. 80 High Def Channels, that rocked. Bathrooms were very nice, clean. Lots to do with the Casino right across the street. Very nice sits, concrete pads with some grass. They picked up your trash each day which was nice. Cons: WIFI was extremely slow almost unusable. Showers were luck warm, turn up the water heater. AT&T and Verizon both were poor. We saw Rob Schneider Saturday night at the Casino, great show. We also saw Sugar Ray Sunday night, and that rocked. What a great show. Can't wait to go back, one of our best camping trips ever! - Jeff Hedges

Excellent park in every way except checkin process and wifi. We really enjoyed our stay. We are no gamblers so no comments about that. Check in signs and directions took us a while to figure out but ended up checking in at the main casino. Ignore the signs and do that but if you have a big rig, find an open spot and walk or see if the reservation desk will allow you to park in your spot and get a shuttle. Wifi was sketchy at beat me cell worked better without it. Laundry and bathrooms were excellent $1.50 each appliance. Change machine for $1,5,10,20. Concrete pads but only a few pull throughs; we had to back in. The site map is on the website and helps finding the lots. - DeanaB

Enjoyed our stay for 4 days at this park. Took the free ferry across the river to visit the Ark. A nice drive through the countryside. Free breakfast at the casino was good. The last day breakfast was moved and the really good muffins no longer available. Only negative is that they need to clean up the trash in the parking lot. - ranchhand

Stayed Memorial weekend. It was jam packed. Mostly tents and pop ups. No water on any sites. No sewer on RV sites. If you tent camp and like really roughing it, this place is for you. To be fair, we we not there to use the state park amenities. Lake, creek, etc. staff was helpful, it not friendly. Probably pretty stressed. - Caveman54

Wonderful park! Stayed a couple of days mid-week and the crowds were sparse. Great swimming beach, large shaded dog park, and a rare dedicated dog beach! The lodge was well kept and we enjoyed a great meal at their restaurant. A small nature center also serves as a raptor rehab home. Acton Lake is quite large and the park roads wind around it. You'll need a car to get from the campground to the lodge or beach, as it's too far to walk and would be a heck of a long bike ride. We found the campground to be tidy with good grass margins between sites. Didn't feel cramped at all. The B Loop has mostly pull-thru sites with good length, long enough for a rig and tow. Electric only sites with water spigot stations located throughout. Dump station is large, two-sided, and has new concrete. Really swell state park that offers lots of activities like golf, boat rentals, hike/bike and horse trails. Glad we stayed here and will return again! - Flying Mantis

Very nice park. Beware listings on sites concerning the "LEVEL". In this park, you setup on the grass, and other vehicles park on the asphalt. This is rather confusing, since most parks prohibit parking on other than the gravel or asphalt. The listing for site level is very deceptive, because of this. If you have anything other than a tent, stay with area "A" or "B". Many of the other sites are so unlevel that an RV or Camper will be very difficult or impossible to setup. The showers and restrooms are good and clean. The park and trails are quite good. The reservations site, will have many of the sites listed as "Slightly Unlevel" are VERY UNLEVEL. - Dave RV Travler
