We enjoyed wandering the pathway adjacent to the cam area. Joe has quite a historical site on and around his property. Ask him about the local significance...

I loved the quiet space, close to nature but not too far from town we could get things we forgot. The train is a little annoying but doesn’t bother me as I grew up with the noise.

Joe, was amazing, helpful and super knowledgeable of the area. I stayed 2 nights just needed a quiet quick getaway and this was the spot. Campsites are clean, safe and easily accessible. Each site has a nice picnic table and fire pit. I will definitely be back. This weekend was everything I had hoped for and more. Thank you Joe..

There were a few good features at this campsite - it was close to the towpath for a nice walk (or bike-ride), the ground was flat enough for 2 tents in one site, the porta-potty was large and pleasant, and there was water available (we didn't use it, but I appreciate it was there), and a nice fire ring. The host was genial and helpful when a light on the shed kept coming on and disrupting our quiet campfire. I didn't realize the site was so close to both the road, and the host's house and the neighbor's house. There was traffic all night, a train passed by which drowned out the cicadas and there were lights on both houses. If you are looking for something secluded - this is not it, and it wasn't clear from the pictures how close everything was. All in all, we enjoyed our stay, and it was reasonably priced, but I prefer more seclusion.

The campsite is extremely convenient to the Towpath and we were bikepacking so it was a perfect location. I appreciated having a picnic and campfire ring onsite. The host was kind and friendly, but a little too chatty, coming to our campsite on both days and spending 30 min rambling is overkill friendliness. The Port-o-Potty was undesirable. The date of the last cleaning was over two weeks prior. We peed in the woods.

Actually, our Porta-Jon has been pumped out every two weeks and cleaned weekly! Sorry that you didn't have a great time!

Probably the best little hidden gem in the entire state of Ohio. Stayed 2 nights and would have liked to stay 2 weeks. The owner Joe is a very remarkable person that has a vast knowledge of the area. He has plenty of interesting stories to tell. He also makes the place very welcoming to all races , genders. What a great weekend. Clean campsites and priced very friendly for any budget. Directly on the Topath and just a few minutes walk to the canoe livery. Tremendous experience. We will be back.

Peace Park is conveniently located next to the towpath. Joe, the land owner is very friendly and helpful! It is a rustic campsite with a porta-potty and a hose for running water. I felt safe staying there.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review! It pleases me that you felt safe here and that my modest investment in solar security lighting by the porta-Jon and the parking lot is paying off. Happy trails!
