Park Visitor: Comments, Memories and Reviews
March 8 Loved the outdoor movie and sassafras by cherbear
we spent over a week in one of your 2 bedroom cabins we thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace, the closed in porch and all the other amenities. we had fresh made sassafras tea and watched the outdoor movies. It was just a time we will always remember.
Campground need a good upgrade along with restrooms and showers . One hot shower and the other two are cold .
Staff extremely efficient and friendly!! This is our home away from home in the summer!

August 5 Good times had by all by John from Brunswick, Ohio
We just left a 3-day stay at the Group Lodge. I started coming to Pike Lake when I was in my early teens, and have been coming back ever since. Probably stayed here 15-16 times in the last 35 years. Extended family lives in Waverly. This year MY kids had a blast...no cells, no texts, just fishing, swimming, hiking, boating, and sports, with cards and games at night. 26 of us between the lodge and 3 cabins. A great 3 days!
June 9 peaceful paradise by Carl and Jennifer
My husband and I really enjoy camping here,it is so nice, quiet peacefull, no phone reception, its great
May 19 Quiet
Very quiet and beautiful area, lots of things to do like frisbee golf but not secluded enough, cabins too close for comfort. I like Pine Ridge Retreat though, not far from park and secluded. Close enough to Pike Lake to enjoy all the activites, but far enough to enjoy the seclusion.
April 10 Quiet retreat-Very friendly staff- by JD-Lewis Center,oh
This is a great place to get away and relax and either fish,hike or play frisbee golf.One other thing,cell phone service does not exist so enjoy some old school fun

October 22 My favorite park. by Someone.
Pike Lake is very beautiful, and I definitely recommend it for anyone that likes nature. My favorite part of the park is the grave of the unknown soldier. It isnt really a grave, thats just what its called, but its a little piece of the past. Also the lake is beautiful, not something id like to swim in, but its great for children. The camprgrounds are always clean, and is pretty big. There is also a horse camp just up the road, so anyone that would like to visit pike lake, and camp with their horses, is welcome. The best time of the year for the park is fall, all the leaves begin to turn, and its just so beautiful. This is a park that people of all ages will enjoy.
June 13 Very small lake
The picnic areas are very nice and there are several large shelter houses available. The play ground areas are ok nothing special but plenty for a child. Trails are nice esp after a rain where the creek is full. The lake is fairly clean and the beach and restrooms have always been clean while we were there. The camp grounds are nice but we prefer LB Camping which is just a little bit away.
February 9 Great Fishing!! by Susan from Mt. Gilead
We have stayed at Pike Lake about 6 times over 20 years. Pike Lake is quiet, beautiful and the fishing can be excellent (just depends on what time of year you go!!) I caught my biggest bass there, it was about 6 pounds (we have witnesses and pictures!!) The cabins are basic but they have everything you need. We prefer the deluxe cabins with the enclosed porch and fireplace.
The only thing you need to bring is food, clothes and your fishing pole.
