Great Tent Camping
Even with COVID going on, this camping area was great! No cell signal made it ideal for unplugging from the dramatics on tv,internet. Had great clean port a potties and clean sites. Wish they had firewood but made a trip and got some in Cambridge. Campers were very nice and friendly with a wave being a standard when passing or driving though. Quiet at night for the most part and all sites angled for great drainage during a overnight rain storm. Sun can be brutal but plenty of shade to survive in till night. Overall great experience and looking forward to many more in the future.

Been fishing camping and hunting at AEP since 1979 and still love the place. I go every fall for the bluegill fishing coyote hunting and a Dutch oven cooking one of my favorites.
Now there is a section called Jessie Owens State Park that was acquired by Ohio DNR from AEP. Myself and I’m sure the public is anxiously waiting to see the planed improvements the state has coming. Over 600 lakes and ponds 60,000 plus public hunting acres and yes primitive free camping at several locations. One of the few dark spots in Ohio for astronomers and the Columbus Astronomical Society hosts a star party there every October at the Big Musky Bucket Miners Memorial Park. I would recommend the Equestrian Horse Riding camp site for your portable telescopes, it’s a high point at a camp that’s rarely used.

Campground H, WOOD GROVE
PRO: Nice free place, has water and a pit toilet. Well designed, originally...
CON: Not for larger rigs. I have a 29' TT. Established sites have what once may've been gravel, but, is now a 6' raised strip not sufficient for standard 8' wide trailers, especially in the rain as it quickly becomes mud. Parked on the 8" tall grass & standing water now. Leaving soon.
AEP might want to add some gravel.
