Please allow me to give you a tour of our place. This is a quiet, peaceful, family campground, away from the noises of the city and roads. Our campground is situated on 65 acres of forest, with only 20 acres being developed into the campground. Being surrounded by a diverse forest of many hardwood trees, there is an abundance of shade in the summer and it seems to keep it cooler here than in the crowded hot city. The canopy is also a home to many different species of birds and wildlife. The sites overlooking the creek and ravine provide opportunities for bird watching.
Here at Lake Hill campground, to provide for a safe and peaceful environment for all our guests, alcohol is not allowed. We also do not allow anyone to bring in their own fire wood, to prevent the spread of pests, especially the Emerald Ash Borer, the Asian longhorn beetle, and others. It may save you a few dollars but it could costs us thousands of dollars in tree removal fees.
The grounds don't have manicured lawns, but in the spring, the profusion of wild flowers, sprinkled liberally in the grass, almost make it a crime to mow. (But we do!) We have large roomy sites that allow more of the feeling of camping in the great outdoors alone. Lake Hill Campground is a quiet place, tucked back in the woods, with an abundance of "why you come outside to play". There are trails in the woods to walk and explore and play games of hide and seek. It would be an awesome place for lazer tag!! It also is a place to slow down and listen to the sounds of the forest. The trails in the woods are the place to take your dog for a walk.
The entrance of the camp is adjacent to the Tri-County Triangle Trail. This is an excellent paved trail for biking or hiking. The trail is an easy flat terrain and suitable for all ages of riders. As you follow along the trail, there are many spots to stop and rest and walk down to the North Fork Paint Creek as it course follows the path for miles. If you go NW into Frankfort, make a stop at the city park for the kids to play at the playground or to further explore the creek. The trail will continue and goes through Austin and continues to Washington Court House. Heading SW on the trail goes all the way into Chillicothe. There are many different species of birds to observe and the fishing is great in North Fork Paint Creek if you have a fishing license.
We have toilet and shower facilities, complete with ADA accessible facilities. The showers are coin operated, $.25 for 4 minutes. We have many people ask why coin operated, and the answer is, so it doesn't become a playhouse! We were previously unmetered water and we had guests leave the hot water running. When we discovered it, the entire shower house was soaking wet from the steam that rolled out the doors when we opened them.
We have firewood for sale at only $5.00 a cubic foot, in maple, locust, and oak. We also have a dump station available to our campers.
For those of you with GPS please note, Hwy 28 to South Musselman will lead to a dead end road. The bridge that connects North Musselman and South Musselman has been out for 30 years but the maps have not been updated to reflect that change. County Road 550 is the only road to cross North Musselman Station Road.
