    The park is astounding and worth the visit. BUT DON'T visit on a holiday weekend!!! This Memorial Day was nothing short of gridlock along some of the trails. It was VERY crowded and certainly took away from the beauty, quiet and solitude. There were so many cars and RV's trying to park near some of the trail heads they parked along the narrow roads, illegally parked on the grass and just about anywhere they could. Absolutely NOTHING was done about it. Shame on the park for allowing all this mayhem to happen!
    If you're camping, I would strongly suggest staying away from the Hocking Hills State Park Campground! The posted speed in the campground is 10MPH, yet some just can't read and fly around well over 20-30 MPH while small children ride bikes on the narrow roadway within the campground.
    Dogs barking at 6:00am will wake you for sure and if that's not enough, the bathroom filth is DISGUSTING!!! Apparently they don't clean but once a day, when it needs attention numerous times through out the day.
    Oh...BRING YOU OWN WATER!!!! I'm not sure what the number of available campsites are but the water at the fill up station for RV's is posted as undrinkable! REALLY? Who thought that one through? DUAH!

    I stayed in the park on a Memorial Day weekend and will never go back. I think there needs to be a differentiation between the area which is beautiful and access to the trails which is convenient and the amenities of the state park itself. The park was built when people in cars pulled small trailers or camped in tents. The size of the spots are small and close together. If someone tows a 22 ft pull behind trailer with a truck they have to park the truck in a common parking lot away from their site because there is not enough room. The showers have a button you push to get water and it is only hot. When you let go of the button the water stops. There are many Ohio state campgrounds that are nicer than this one. The money spent on the welcome center at the entrance would have been better spent on the camp infrastructure.

    Another great spot to camp in OHIO! Close to many trails and caves. The fishing is great in early spring too! Highly recommend this spot.

    Nice and quiet. Good fishing. Close to all of the trails without all of the business.
