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.

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.

Joe was a fantastic host! My husband and I enjoyed the history tour. There were 3 other campers there and there were plenty of sites for us to have our space.
We will definitely be returning!

Joe came out to greet us and was super friendly and explained the history of the property. The place was super well set up with trash cans, a portapotty, drinking water, and an outlet. The sites are perfect for tent camping and the location was easy to find. The nearby road stays pretty busy overnight and there is a train that ran as well. It was a really nice campsite and you can see the work Joe puts in!

Another great experience at Peace Park. There is no better location for bike camping so close to the Towpath. Be sure to check out Lockport Brewery and Sublime Barbecue nearby.

The host was great and well versed in the history of this property. It is right next to a bike trail and has some cool camp spots. I had a great night's sleep ... but must mention the one train. The horn was very loud but brief and I don't mind the sound of trains in the background while camping. Overall it was a great place to stay!
