Please allow me to give you a tour of our place. We are just 10 miles northwest of Chillicothe, in the hills of southern Ohio, surrounded by a diverse forest of hardwood trees. The tree canopy provides an abundance of shade in the summer to our campground and sites, as well as a home to many different species of birds and wildlife. The sites overlooking the creek and ravine provide the best area for bird watching. This is a quiet, peaceful, family campground, away from the noises of the city and roads.
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.
Our campground is situated on 65 acres of forested hills, with only 20 acres being developed into the campground. We offer deluxe cabins and basic cabins, large, shady sites, most with FHU, some sites upgraded to 50amp. This campground is not for those who prefer the resort quality accommodations, we are a bit more laid back. We 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 it.(But we do!) We don't have meticulously maintained grounds that allow for the maximum number of sites per square feet, stacked up like dominoes ready to fall. We have large roomy sites that allow more of the feeling of camping in the great outdoors alone.
We have excellent toilet and shower facilities, complete with ADA accessible facilities. The showers are coin operated, $.25 for 4 minutes.
Our private 5 acre lake, 35 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, paddle boats, kayaks, canoe, and a 14ft row boat.
The sandy beach provides the opportunity for swimming, sunbathing or just building a sandcastle. We have a play-ground for children, and a game room with a pool table, foosball game, and air hockey. We also have outdoor games that can be checked out and played in our grassy tier areas, including badminton, croquet, and bocce ball.
The entrance of the camp is adjacent to the Tri-County Triangle Trail paved bike trail. Heading NE on the trail it travels along side of the North Fork Paint Creek for about two miles in to the Frankfort Area, then goes to Washington Court House. Heading SW on the trail also follows along side of the river and goes all the way into Chillicothe. This is an excellent trail for biking or hiking. There are many different species of birds to observe and the fishing is great in North Fork Paint Creek if you have a license.
Because of the Emerald Ash Borer, we also ask that you not bring in your own firewood. We have firewood for sale at only $5.00 a square foot, in maple, locust, and oak. We also fill propane tanks and have a dump station available to our campers.
