Should have a museum
Towpath Trail Peace Park Campsites has the union of so much history, I hope it can become a museum, being located at: Greenville Peace Treaty line that was established to give Indians, including the friendly Delaware Indians, rights to the lands to the west in order to end the Native American hostilities after the end of the Revolutionary war; Ohio Erie Canal next to its aqueduct, now with foot bridge over the Tuscarawas River, that brought civilization to the interior of Ohio; The Wheeling and Lake Erie Rail Road, replacing canals as the nucleus for settlement of the interior of North East Territory; Location of an original telegraph line that first brought instant communication across the Nation; and Scenic Byway 212 where it passes under the rail road. The park is wonderfully located to provide pristine aquifer water, camping and intended concession meals for hikers on the combined Ohio & Erie Canalway, Buckeye Trail and Tuscarawas County Trails. I highly recommend visiting this oasis before it becomes a tourist attraction and you can personally hear from Joe his research on the historical property and area that he wishes to share with the greater community. The Amish neighbors drive by in their buggies. The rustic campsites, on the bank of the canal, are also located within 6 miles of: Fort Laurens, the only Revolutionary War fort built in Ohio; Historic Canal village of Bolivar; Separatist community of Zoar; Ohio’s most historic Camp Tuscazoar; and second oldest Lynn Drive in Theater still in use.
I would go there again.
My stay was very pleasant. The grounds were well kept and supplied with picnic table fire ring and porta potty within few yards from the sites. If you like bird watching this is the place for you with many different species a birds and was able to hear owl calls at night. Towpath Trail is is just a short walk away.
This is exactly what we were looking for. Great location, great host, very well kept. Very clean porta potty yards from site, wood available, short walk to river. Perfect!! Even a super nice dog that may co.e say hello.
Joe was a welcoming and hospitable host! The port-a-potty was very clean and a great addition to the site. Another positive is that it was very close to the Towpath. Overall, it was a great stay!
