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. 

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 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.
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 square 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.
