My folks stayed at the Stoney Creek cabin and the place was wonderful! The cottage is beautiful and very affordable. I recommend this over a hotel any day.

This is a beautiful place to take a drive or a hike. South central Ohio is rich with history, from early native American history to events important to Ohio as a state. This natural area has attractive roadways, and bountiful wildlife, to the observant traveler!

This state park is very well maintained and their hiking trails are well marked, easy to moderate hiking. They have a couple small lakes and some picnic facilities. Very pleasant place to explore.
