September 11th, 2019 Wolf Run State park is in great need of maintenance & updating.
Wolf Run St Pk has very shallow open unlevel sites, no privacy. Sites were clean. Cherry Trail was nice. Other trails were overgrown and ended abruptly, encountered ticks in the high grasses on the unmaintained lake trail. The outhouses are the worst I`ve seen in 50+ years of camping. No lids on toilets, no doors to outhouse & there seems to be absolutely no treatment of excrement in pits, therefore flies & bugs are unbearable. The smell extends far into the campground. Horrendous! There is a port-a-potty at the picnic ground that is a highly recommended alternative and well worth the drive.The Ohio State Parks pamphlet & Wolf Creek pamphlet indicate a Nature Center. I asked the woman in the park entrance booth & she said it was a brown building just up the road. When I told her I looked but couldn`t locate it, she then offered up that it is no longer open. I found the broken down building that was a bit larger than an outhouse, a disappointment as I go to parks with nature centers for my grand kids. When reserving a site on Reserve America there were many sites with no pictures or specs on shade & site length. That should have been a red flag. I gave a 2-star rating only because the lake is beautiful & I imagine excellent for boaters. I would not return to this campground.

August 25th, 2019 Double Campsite
This site is a double campsite. It worked well for 2 tents, though we positioned the tents next to each other instead of opposite sides of the site. There is a close water spigot and a path conveniently provides a short walk to restrooms w/showers. The pit toilet is nearby as well due to a path across the road. Only downfall with the site is the lack of grass.

August 25th, 2019 Close to restrooms. Pretty good shade.
There is far less grass than the pictures. Shade was sufficient except for when the sun was high. Restrooms are close but didn`t feel they were noisy. Not much privacy due to a path that runs between A30 and A32.

August 24th, 2019 Older park, but nice
Heavily wooded. Sites are close together with some just feet behind you. We were shocked that there is water hookup at this state park. In heard of I’m MN. Small waterfall, steep trek down. Many sites not level or damp (non-electric). Non-electeic offers more privacy. Bathrooms were nice and clean.

August 9th, 2019 Secluded, Very Nice
Took the kids for a trial backpacking run. IMHO, this state park is great for a starter backpacking trip, trails are well marked, easy hike in and out, they even put in stairs and rebar supported boards, trails are very well maintained. Tent pads are flat and fairly level. It`s backpacking utopia.
Site 14 is 8-15 minutes down the river from site 13, depending on how fast you are and how heavy your pack is. Also, site 14 is a good 1-2 minutes off the trail, very secluded. You could pitch 3 to 4 tent and it`s right on the river. I passed sites 3-13 and thought site 14 was the best of the lot, mainly due to being secluded.
There`s a toilet a little up from the camp (there`s a pole marker for it).
And I do mean just a toilet, not in an outhouse, it`s a pit toilet on a platform in the open. At least it`s a private site.
The site has some log benches and a nice grill pit, very shaded.
Also of note, the Manitou river was brown when we went early August, the water filtered brown (apple juice colored, with some soapy looking bubbles). I was a little concerned, but what are you going to do, we drank it filtered. I didn`t see any signs, "Don`t drink the water!". After we left, I called the state park to ensure it was safe, they said it was safe to drink (Iron, sediment, dead plants...etc). We didn`t get sick. Just calling this out from someone from out west where the water is clear.
Also, I think the quickest way to sites 11-16 is to take Yellow Birch, to Cedar Ridge, to Matt Willis, then hike the river trail. Cedar Ridge is much easier to hike than taking Yellow Birch all the way to the river trail. The river trail has a lot of ups and downs, steam crossings over logs, it`s much slower than the relatively flat Cedar Ridge trail. With this route, it took us roughly 1.5 hours to get to from the parking lot.
Site 14, Highly recommended as a starter trip. Seasoned backpackers may want a little for challenge.

August 9th, 2019 Nice Site, Close to Trail
This site is right on the river, 2 pads. The entrance is south, you walk for 2 minutes south, only to find it`s 25 feet off the trail. So why did they not put the entrance to the closest part of the trail?
It`s a beautiful site though, we did not stay, but passed it going to site 14, which is another 8-15 minutes south.

Site 1 and 3 have been cleared to build new bathroom which is supposed to be ready in 2020. Should be a huge improvement.

August 1st, 2019 Wonderful, private, nice view
We stayed late July for three nights. Reserved it two months in advance; both campgrounds were full every night. The showers were open, to our pleasant surprise. This is the middle site of three cart-in sites. This and 33 are very private, large sites. 31 only gets viewed by the folk in 32 and 33, so it`s pretty private too, and I felt it had slightly better views. 32 mysteriously has gravel for a tent bed; 31 and 33 had fresh wood chips. The campground is meticulously maintained otherwise, and this site offered amazing views and a great experience. Mosquitoes...well...it`s MN. This is a tent only site.

July 8th, 2019 Over crowded for a reason
We have camped here 7 times so far. Love everything about it. From the trails to the sites and the beaches. I do feel like things could be improved. Like more parking near the beach area, more & better quality bathrooms, more grills on the beach, etc. Most of these problems are due to overcrowding on holidays. It is beautiful here though and the rangers are a little more laid back. They have a lot of amenities. One of our favorite places to camp.

July 8th, 2019 Desirable!
We have yet to be able to stay on this site because it is always booked up. I camped next to it twice and I really cannot wait to get the chance. It is very spacious and set in the back a bit. Has a great view of the night sky but also enough coverage for a bit of rain and shade. It is connected to site 32 if I remember correctly. It sets on the edge of a cliff but has a fence and a really nice view. It is close enough to walk to the bathrooms and showers but not so close you can smell them.

July 8th, 2019 Great Site!
We stayed on this one twice. It is my second favorite to site 21. It is spacious and set in the back a bit. Shows just enough of the sky for a great view of the stars but also enough coverage for a bit of rain. It is connected to site 21 as well as 33 if I remember correctly. It sets on the edge of a cliff but has a fence. It is close enough to walk to the bathrooms and showers but not so close you can smell them.

This site offers a little bit of privacy from the road but not from your neighbor. It has a nice flat space for 1 large tent or two small. The tent area is off to the back with fire pit and parking u[p front. There a couple really nice giant boulders on this site. It is directly ext to pit toilets so you will be able to smell it.

July 8th, 2019 Decent site
Decent site with a nice clear space for a tent. The fire pit is set towards the back where there are some boulders and a cliff. Even nicer when paired with 427. It is directly across from the pit toilets. So, you may catch some smell. Not a great view if you want to see the stars.

July 8th, 2019 Kinda small but great if you pair with 428
This site had some nice clear spots for tents but it was very small, if you pair it with 428 you get a really nice set up.
July 8th, 2019 Private is the ONLY perk!
I have camped at Devils Lake for 7 years and never had a site so bad it made me want to go home. The site itself is up a steep hill which makes packing and unpacking quite difficult. To add to that, It rained a lot this time and the steep hill turned into a slippery mud fill hill. I slipped around 15 times and so did my son. The giant boulders and tree roots sticking out of this steep hill made it worry some to climb up and down while slipping in mud. There are two spots for tents both completely filled with boulders and large tree roots as well. There was no way around it we ended up with holes in the bottom of both our tents from our cots rubbing against the boulders and roots. I have never had a complaint about a site before but I was very dissatisfied with this one.
