Campground Review–Evergreen Park RV Resort–Mt. Eaton, OH


Dates we stayed here:  October 29 – November 2 (Friday – Tuesday)


The campground was celebrating Halloween this weekend, so it was full for the first two nights of our stay.  We called for a reservation about a month ahead of time, and were put on the waiting list (#1 on the list).  We got the call telling us that we had a site about 2 weeks later!

Location:  Mt. Eaton, OH

Evergreen Park RV Resort is located in the Amish countryside of mid-Ohio, near the quaint towns of Berlin, Sugarcreek and Walnut Creek. 


The RV Park is bordered by Amish farms – this was our neighbor to the north.


Our site:  #55

site 55

There are 87 sites, all big-rig friendly in length, and with decent separation between them, although some have issues with leveling.  It’s not very apparent from this picture, but our site was on an incline, front to back, and lower than the road.  This created an issue for us when it was time to hitch back up at the end of our stay.

empty sites

All of the sites are full hookup (30/50 amp), and both cable TV and wifi are free.  We had good luck with the wifi, and no problem with our Verizon phone signal either.  Each site has a picnic table and a firepit.

We paid $45 per night, which is a little high, but the facilities made it really worthwhile.

Amenities:  The campground has an office/store building, with a LARGE laundromat – and I do mean large!  There must have been 20+ washers and dryers (each!) in there, and a flat-screen TV for your viewing pleasure.  The laundry is open 24 hours with the code provided at check-in.


The park also offers a large recreation building which includes  the bathhouses – with separate, heated & cooled, individual shower rooms, each including a shower, toilet and sink (at least on the women’s side; my boys say they aren’t like that on the men’s side); a gameroom/exercise room with snack bar; and the indoor pool and hot tub.  It was really convenient to bring warm clothes to the pool with us in the evenings, and go straight to the showers when we finished swimming.  The showers were warm & toasty – I think they must have radiant heat, because even the floor was warm!

pool building

The pool and hot tub are both very clean, and the entire pool area is very attractive.  Both are open until 10pm Sun – Thurs; 11pm Fri-Sat.  The pool is only open to campers, accessible with a keypad code that you are given at check-in.

Surrounding the pool building, there is a shuffleboard court,


a playground, basketball court and a large pavilion with built-in grills.  The park also offers rental cabins


and another small pavilion attached to the maintenance shed.  There is also a coin-operated doggy wash, which we did not try out (too cold!).

Our overall impression:  We really enjoyed our stay here.  The facilities are great, and all of the staff that we met were really nice!  The location is perfect for exploring all of the Amish towns nearby – the resort is well outside of the congested area around Berlin, but plenty close enough for visiting!  If we return to this area, we’d definitely stay here again.  We will, however, be more careful in selecting a site and positioning the RV so that it’s level and not so difficult to hitch back up.

  1. I agree with your reviews, especially about the unlevel sites. When I made our reservation and asked for a level site, I was told "Our sites are all level. They are all paved." Why then did we see motorhomes with their front wheels jacked up off the ground?


Thanks for reading! We'd love to hear your comments!
