Here at Lake Hill campground, to provide for a safe and peaceful environment for all our guests, alcohol is not allowed.

 

PLEASE DO NOT BRING IN FIREWOOD TO THE CAMPGROUND!!   If you do bring in firewood, you may be told to burn it immediately, or put all firewood back into your vehicle or asked to leave without a refund   We are trying to prevent the Emerald Ash Borer from invading our wood and campground.  We do not have the bug yet and don't want it.  The money you may save bringing in your own firewood is tiny compared to the cost for us if we were to have to cut down all the Ash trees in the park that could become infested.   We sell firewood at very reasonable prices and allow you to collect down wood in our woods.  NO trees are to be cut down though.  

 

Pets are allowed at Campground, but me be leased at all times while outside and cleaned up after.  Pets are not allowed in any cabin or building or on the beach area for swimming.  We do allow pets to swim on the back side of lake down below our basic cabins unless there are guests fishing there.  

Lake Hill is a 65 acre campground, 57 sites on 20 acres, with many options for accommodations:; a bunkhouse that sleeps 10-26 guests , deluxe cabins 1-4 adults, basic cabins 1-2 adults, rv sites FHU 30/50, rv/tent water/elec 30 amp   free wi-fi for daily campers                     

The pictures below will take you on 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.  The pictures below are in order as if you were driving through campground.  After you drive by the old office and see our round house, you will pass by our spring fed lake, the sites by the lake with water and electric only.  The playground will be on the right side of the road as you pas by the point sites.   The basic cabins are then featured down below and there are three of them in close proximity to each other.  The playground is located next to the shower house/bathrooms.  Next is our deluxe cabins, which are also close to each other.  Then our full hookup sites are featured.  If you hold your mouse over the picture, it will show what site it is.  I have tried to post a picture of each site empty and occupied.  

Lake Hill Campground has a 4 acre spring fed lake, sandy bottom swimming area and beach. Fishing with no license required but it is catch-n-release, one pole per person.  No taking of any of our bull frogs allowed.  We have rowboat/jonboat/ canoe/kayak rental.   We have over a mile of  trails in our woods for hiking or dog walking, that were our old logging trails.  We do allow ATV riding, but it is at your own risk as this is a heavily forrested area and not made for speed.  Only riding from trails to your site is allowed in campground.  Golf carts are allowed just to get around campgound, not for racing.  

Lake Hill Campground is next to the Tri-County TriangleTrail for 37 miles of trails for biking or hiking.   We take for granted having such a nice bike trail next to our entrance.  We purchased recumbent bikes last year to ride on the "Rails to Trails" system and traveled all the way to North Carolina to ride our recumbents and didn't find any trails as nice as the one in our own backyard!!  We are 11 miles from Chillicothe Ohio, 17 miles to Tecumseh Outdoor Drama. 30 miles or less to Deer Creek, Rocky Fork,and Paint Creek Lake, 70 miles or less to Hocking Hills State Park, Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati 

Lake Hill Campground is the place for family and friends or groups to connect with each other, to explore, and discover why its better to be outdoors!

No two sites are alike here, each one has its own charm and attraction for the individual tastes of each camper. All of our sites have water and 30 amp electric, most with Full hook up, some FHU sites upgraded to 50amp. This campground is not for those who prefer the resort quality accommodations, it is a bit more laid back here, more like the owners.

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.

There are two ravines ,with dry creeks during the summer, behind the campground that are also great for exploring and hiking. The scenery changes every year after the spring rains floods the dry creeks and washes things down or out.
Our private 5 acre lake, 25 feet deep and spring-fed, provides many types of recreational activities. Fishing is free, for campers only, no license required. It is catch and release on the catfish and bass, and a limit of 20 bluegill or crappie per day per site. We also offer boat rentals with jon boats, kayaks, and a 14ft row boat.
There is a great place to take your kids fishing, down below the basic cabins. The shale that washes down the creek bed every spring with the heavy rains has created a shale beach with no overhead trees to snag the fish line on as the little ones cast out.
If you walk back into the woods on that creek in the summer you might get lucky and find some crawdads lurking under the rocks or in the little individual pools of water.

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.

The sandy beach provides the opportunity for swimming, sunbathing or just building a sandcastle. We have a play-ground for children, and  outdoor games that can be checked out and played in our grassy tier areas, including badminton, croquet, and bocce ball.  Our game room is currently under renovation including the area in front of it so it is closed until 2018.

As the day comes to a close, and new delight starts, lightning bugs come out to enthrall. Sitting in a kayak, in the middle of the lake, in complete darkness, is mesmerizing. Its a shame to think that they are disappearing. We have an abundance of them!! I wish I knew how to capture their beauty in a picture.

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.
