Harsha Lake, former known as East Fork Lake, is located in southwestern Ohio, and is noted for Ordovician fossil beds.

    Good spot to camp and hike but beach access for campers is not great. Plus the sand is more like small gravel! OUCH! Overall though I enjoy camping here. Plenty of tent camping spots.

    great camp ground. I've been coming here for years. Facility is very clean and well kept. Great for families. Even with the beetle infestation cleanup, it still rocks!
