Hamilton County, Ohio Campground Expansion Complete

An 18-month expansion project of the Winton Woods Campground is complete for the Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial kick-off of summer and camping season. Whether campers want to enjoy a simple overnight camp-out or a weeklong stay, Winton Woods offers an array of amenities with 123 sites.

The hottest commodities are the eight new deluxe cabins with fully-equipped kitchens (linens, cookware, dishes and dishwasher), bathrooms with stand-in showers, heat, air-conditioning and televisions. Each cabin includes a wood deck, picnic table, grill and fire ring; they sleep six people, including a loft for children.

Other new sites include 25 RV back-in sites and 12 RV pull-through sites, all with full hookup (water, 50-amp electric and sewer), concrete patio, picnic table and fire ring. Winton Woods Campground also has 10 basic cabins and 68 sites with 30-amp hookups.

“RV camping continues to be a popular way for Americans to travel and enjoy their vacation and family time,” states Recreation Manager Bill Mowery. “The Winton Woods Campground is a great alternative for families looking for an affordable destination in these tough economic times.”

Site rentals range from $25 per night for 30-amp electric to $115 per night for the deluxe cabins.

Another addition is a campground office and store that sells anything campers may have forgotten to pack – from sunscreen to sweatshirts if the night air gets chilly. The Woods Café features a delicious menu including fresh-brewed coffee, cappuccinos, hand-dipped ice cream, nachos, hot pretzels and pizza that can be delivered to campers’ cabins, RVs and campsites.

Campers can make use of a group activity shelter, playground, larger visitor parking, two new dump stations, a shower building and Wi-Fi access.

The Winton Woods Campground is located within easy walking distance of the park’s Harbor via a paved multi-purpose trail. Visitors can enjoy both wet and dry playgrounds, a snack bar and plenty of water recreation. There are rowboats, kayaks, canoes, pedal boats or mini-pontoon boats for rent on the 188-acre lake with plenty of fishing; bait and tackle can be purchased at the park’s boathouse.

The Winton Woods Campground expansion reflects the Hamilton County Park District’s commitment to providing outdoor recreation and education for area residents. Revenue generated from campground reservations contributes to the Park District’s status as one of the most self-sufficient park systems in the country.
