This is not a destination campsite. This is somewhere to go if you plan on boating and need a place to stay overnight. There's a decent "backyard" to the sites but to the front and sides, it's sardine city. Big campers are backed up against a tree to the rear and your truck has to go somewhere else, there's no room onsite and less than five "guest parking" spaces.
You need to be darn good at maneuvering your rig to make it into the tiny spaces. If it wasn't for my husband driving tractor trailers for the past 15 years, there's no way we could've gotten in with a 36' camper and dually. Even he had to wiggle and twist for a good 10 minutes before nailing it, and we're really not sure at this point how to ever make it out. The people beside us came in later with a much smaller fifth wheel camper and a regular sized truck. Getting in was nearly impossible for them too. They had to cut the wheel hard, bringing the truck two inches from the shower house, to make it happen. This involved two people guiding the driver and a whole lot of adjustments and corrections.
Unleashed large dogs roam the campsite freely, owners trailing behind at a distance. I haven't noticed any owners trailing behind with cleanup bags either.
There's free wifi but no one offered up a password to access it.
Bring a pallet if you come here. Everyone else has them. If it rains, you'll quickly find out why you needed it. - malik0976

The motorhome and travel trailer sites are level with gravel parking and grass in between sites. Facilities were clean. The staff were very friendly and accommodating to the campers. They walked the grounds every day and talked to the campers to make sure everything was OK. Easy access to Rock Fork Park and lake. We would stay here again. - Wayne Magill

The Lakeside loop has full hookups and is very big-rig friendly. There is decent distance between sites. There are no trees or other vegetation separating sites. The sites are paved and level. The upper campground is more crowded with some sites close together. There is a mixture of full hookups, electric only, and primitive. Many sites are shaded. Some of the sites are big-rig friendly, but many are not. There is a nice playground for the youngsters and disc golf and putt-putt available for the rest of us. There is also a good boat launch. A problem we noted was the camphosts would move the tables onto the middle of the site. When you arrived you had to get out and move the table. this could be a problem in bad weather or if you had physical limitations. There was no logical reason for this when we asked. - winnie1

This is a nice park. The only drawback was that the beach was a few miles away. The spaces were a little close but not right on top of each other. The staff and patrons were friendly and the facilities were clean. - rcsauce

This is our third Ohio state park and by far the best. We had a site in the second row of the lower level with a nice lake view. Sites were full hookup with nice sized asphalt pads. The sites were quite spacious when compared to commercial RV Park and all of the connections were in a convenient location. It was exceptionally quiet at night. I didn't interact with the park staff at all over the weekend but if its like other states parks they are pleasant and helpful. Getting to the park is relatively easy and there are a number things to do while there. We will definitely be back. - Stranded_In_Ohio

Nice park with decent room and fairly level spots. - dbng

We stayed for 1 week. The sites are level but some sites off the pad can be steep. Many of the heavily treed areas could be reseeded. Lots of mud to deal with. Very clean park and bathroom shower water pressure is excellent. We use this park often, as it is fairly close for our weekend getaways. - Tom De

Stayed here for the first time on Memorial Day weekend. Since they don't take reservations, we drove up the Tuesday before (on a friend's advice) and grabbed two adjacent sites. To hold a site, you must place something there (RV, tent, car) and leave it. Normally you don't have to go up early but big crowds were expected for the holiday weekend. That prediction proved true, as the place was JAMMED. It's a huge, nicely cared for facility with great activities for kids. On busy weekends there is an ENDLESS parade of golf carts, bikes, cars and trucks from dawn into dark. Our two sites were level, wide, and tree shaded with 30/50 and water but no sewer. The full hookup sites are on one side of the park and are close together with hills and no shade. Staff members were friendly and attentive and security patrols through regularly. It's a rural atmosphere and is 15 miles off the main road on hilly winding rural roads. There was no cell signal (Verizon, but I'm told ATT works), wifi, or local TV. Many seasonal campers. Regular visitors told us the crowded conditions were due to the holiday and because the Summer attractions were opening that weekend. Normally, it's supposed to be easy to arrive and find a decent site. Great kid activities including pool and lake swimming with huge water slides, small boat rental, go carts, carousel, mini golf, huge arcade. Very family friendly! - CincyBuckeye

Site was grass and clay and it was raining so lots of mud. Getting there is an adventure, curvy 2 lane roads. No cell reception, tv, wifi. Lots of permanent sites and you can hear people talking and radios playing(or cds). They have lots of stuff for kids but shut down Oct 1st. Doubt we would stay there again. Geared more for full time seasonal folks. - tlrpilot

Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend, lots of people and very busy. They do NOT take reservations, so show up early to get a site on holiday weekends. Overnight sites are grass, some with full hook-up. You cannot pick any TV reception unless you have a satellite. All and all not a bad place to spend the weekend. - Andy7359

Basics, paved roads and sites, both are narrow but no problem getting around if you can see where the road is. We were there in late Oct. and there were leaves all over the road and it blended with the leaves off the road. There were a few pull thru sites that would accommodate a 45' coach but not the toad. All the power was 30/20 amp. There was water available around the park but I saw no sign of a dump station and no sewer. No Verizon or Wifi so it's a digital detox site. The showers are semi outdoor with warm water and good pressure. They are more designed for rinsing off after swimming in the little lake. There are several hiking trails and a camp store. There was only one other camper there but as noted before the place would be tight during peak seasons. We'd probably stay here again if we were in the area. - pumper9x9

Nice state park in central Ohio. We were one of two campers there so hard to judge how Park would be if full. The roads were narrow and my instincts tell me it would see tight if full. No cell service with Verizon and not great satellite service because of all the trees. We had a pull through with electric that made it great for a one nite stay. I bet locals love this little park. I thought I read showers but not sure where they were. - smitty12

Very quiet place to get away. Electric with water nearby to fill up if needed. Very little traffic and no cell service so it really is a getaway. Shower house requires driving to because it is at the farthest point from the camping area. We will definitely go back. - ohbuffalo

Loud, all day, all night. Not relaxing at all which is sad because it's a beautiful setting, full hookups available, not too crowded and packed with things to do. They have activities for the kids, an on-site store, town is close for everything you forgot to bring, playgrounds and a swimming area, lake (troll motor only), canoe rental and, the big problem, miles of ATV trails. The trails close at 11 but that doesn't stop people from zipping around the campsite at all hours of the night. There's a 10 mph speed limit posted for vehicles but the ATVS run full throttle. If they would restrict the ATVs to just the quieter ones and only to run from 10AM to 10PM, I would never leave this site. As it is, I'm never coming back and don't encourage anyone to visit either. Unless you're into ATV riding. If so, you'll be in heaven here. - malik0976

We have camped at Mineral Springs Lake Resort, at Peebles, Ohio, for 26 years. We spend at least 4 days a week at the lake from April to October. We have never had problems with any staff at the park. They have always been helpful and capable of doing a good job. We have noticed more ATV traffic each year. The present manager is working on this problem. He had a specific area for them but they do not stick to those areas. I am sure that the problem will be taken care of. We're looking forward to going back April 2009. - User683

Campground is very run down. Roads are very poor and not maintained. The staff is very unfriendly. The campground allows off road 4 wheelers which run around all day and most of the night and are destroying the place. Ruts in the road are so bad my camper drug the back jacks off of the unit pulling in to the dump station. When I talked to the owner his response was, "Too bad." The water pressure was so low we could not use our shower. I talked to other campers, and they all told me that since the new management has taken over the place has fallen apart. With the high 4 wheeler and golf cart traffic the place is not safe for the kids, and I would not advise anyone to stay at this campground. - davisnoh

May 2017 - $28.00
Electric good, well keep grounds, campground nearly empty, lots of lakefront though sites are not near water. Small beach but pleasant stay. Road to state park is quite twisty and not much to do nearby unless you are a boater or first-person at the lake. - Jitime40

We stayed in a pull through site. The employees/owner were very nice. The park itself was nice. As has been noted, it is tight. We tow a Jayco A-Frame type fold down with an extension on the front to carry things, so it is 22 feet long. There are some spots given my skill level at towing, I would not have wanted to try. The sites are small. Having done a lot of camping at state parks this year we got kind of spoiled with larger sites. The pool was very nice and still open past labor day. What surprised me most was the showers were pay showers. .25 cents for 2.5 minutes. I have never seen that before. While clean both the bathrooms and showers were in need of updating. Very old. Overall a nice place. We would return. - npdchief7

The park was clean and the service was friendly. The office was closed when we showed up on Sunday afternoon but one of owners opened up the store so we could check in and buy firewood. Then pointed out our spot. - Bull205

We stayed on their premium site which is site 80. It has a poured patio, which is nice, a charcoal grill, patio furniture, and fire pit.
This is not a full hook up campground. They have a gray water drain which is only a 1 1/2 inch drain pipe, so you can't use your regular sewer hose to dump your gray water. Owners/operators were friendly, pool was nice, and most of the folks we met around the campground were friendly as well. Smaller campground, so I believe they can only accommodated a few big rigs. Most interior roads are gravel, but in good shape. - jmcmanama
