Lake Alma State Park - I have been going to lake alma my entire life. This weekend I went and I was mad because at the beach there were people with DOGS Zane they were letting them swim in the lake with us One of the dogs decided to POOP in the water They have a dog beach and I feel that should be enforced The park ranger came around one time and I was there about 5 hours , until the dog pooped in the lake This needs to be addressed Its certainly not fair to people who want to bring their children to swim in the lake .

Really Nice Place to Visit - We stopped here on our way to Lake Erie. Malabar Farm was a great place to take a break and have lunch.

Our go to place to camp for a few days - Stonelick lake campground is one of my favorites anywhere around the Cincinnati area. Very well cared for, mowing and weedeating as well as flowers during the summer months. Showerhouse has been completely remodeled. The camphosts do a great job We just camped there this week for two days.

Outdoor Recreation Area Needs Upkeep - Several years ago Maumee Bay State Park added three pickleball courts to their already well thought out outdoor recreation area that consisted of tennis courts and a basketball area. These courts were lighted and well maintained. During the outdoor season there was a portable toilet at the court entrance. I am sad to say that now, when outdoor exercise and social distancing are sought after and some do not want to exercise inside, the area is in severe disrepair. Starting with the cracked and weed filled walkway to the area, no portable toilet, cracked courts, lights that do not work, and improvised fencing supported by ropes, things need to be repaired. The tennis area has had one net down for months and the basketball area is in disrepair. Evenings in September and October once were well attended by players of all ages. Now, as darkness comes earlier it will be impossible to play. I have emailed the park manager and received replies indicating that the problems would be addressed. There has been clean up of weeds inside of the fencing, but no other progress. What was once a showplace for outdoor recreation has declined so much as to be embarrassing. I hope the park can maintain and fix the area before it becomes totally abandoned.

Such a treasure - What a shame this once beautiful park has not been kept up. And has been closed since Covid hit. I have so many memories of Crane Creek from my childhood and adult. Every New Years day I walk the beach. I will miss these times.

Best kept secret. - My wife and I live only 10 minutes away from here and it is our favorite place to go for a quick get away. We just got back this morning for a 2 night stay just to relax. The facility is clean, quiet, the staff are great and the price is fantastic. Jake camp host does a great job taking care of things. He even went out of his way to help me find a golf cart for my wife. Will definitely keep coming back.

Bike Trail Needs Grooming - The west 1.76 miles of the bicycle trail are seriously in need of grooming. Weeds on both sides of the trail have not been cut back all summer. As a result, the trail is one lane only in several areas.

swimming beach - The swimming beach is way too small and crowded. No shade trees in parking lt to park or picnic under. More parks with swimming beaches are needed all over central ohio.
