Description
On the Appalachian Plateau is Paint Creek State Park, a place steeped in both beauty and history. Home to the Shawnee Indians, this region became famous for a wrongful act of violence to an innocent Native American man, where a funeral pyre stood in remembrance for many years. The area served as a place of commerce for some time, as the creeks were used to power mills. In more recent decades, Paint Creek is now a place where the incredible natural surroundings can be enjoyed by visitors from all over the world as it received it's State Park designation back in the 70s.

There are over 200 campsites in the park, along with cabins, a day-use shelter, and a yurt. Most of the sites feature electric hookups, and all come with a picnic table and fire ring. If you happen to be there in the warmer months, you'll also have access to a Marina and a Camp Store to restock at during your stay. Rest assured, there is drinking water on-site, and many of the lots are handicap-friendly meaning all can come and enjoy this beautiful state park. The sites are set in a lovely forest clearing, however, they do not offer much - if any - privacy. 

You'll never run out of fun activities to partake in here, including basketball, putt putt, and a playground. Grab Fido and head to one of the many hiking trails, or hop on your bike for some fast-paced exploring. Boating and swimming are both allowed at Paint Creek Lake, a body of water of almost 1,200 acres with a 1000-foot beach for lounging on (or playing volleyball - whatever you'd rather).

Pups are welcome in Ohio State Parks, but they must be on-leash at all times. It's also important to note that doggos are not permitted in the cabins, yurt, or on the beach. The park asks that you please clean up all of your pooch's bathroom breaks and never leave them unattended during your stay.

To experience the gorgeous views this state park has to offer, be sure to add it to your camping list for next season!
