Wolf Run State Park -- Ohio

We recently spent several days at Wolf Run State Park just south of the intersection of I-70 and I-77 in Noble County in eastern Ohio.  Located near the town of Caldwell, the park features numerous views of the 220 acre Wolf Run Lake.  

While we enjoyed our visit there, we wondered about the design and layout of the campground.  In the area with electric sites many of the 50 amp sites are too small for anything but a small van or a car and tent.   However, in the non-electric area are quite a number of sites well suited to fairly large rigs, except there is no electricity.  We had to wonder if the campground had been designed by someone with limited or no camping experience.   We did have a nice site with electricity and a lake view.

During our walk on our last morning there, we saw about three dozen wild turkey enjoying a leisurely breakfast.  The park received its name from the Wolf family, the first to settle in the area.  As always, we far prefer state park campground instead of commercial campgrounds.
