Dillon State Park’s wooded hills and scenic valleys offer a picturesque setting for outdoor adventure. Whether boating the quiet coves and inlets of the lake or hiking the forest trails, Ohio’s rural hill country provides an outstanding recreational experience at Dillon State Park. There are 29 family cottages nestled in the woods overlooking the north lakeshore. Each cottage has air conditioning, color cable television, gas heat, two bedrooms, bath, living room with sofa bed, all-electric kitchen, dining area, and screened porch. One cottage is fully accessible. Linens, towels, and kitchen utensils are furnished. There are 195 campsites for tents or trailers. The non-electric sites are walk-in only offering excellent primitive camping. The campground is equipped with flush toilets, showers, and a dump station. A commissary with grocery items and the laundromat is located near the check-in station. An excellent 1,360-foot swimming beach is located near the park office. Facilities include a bathhouse, showers, and a wading pool for children. A game area is adjacent to the beach offering volleyball and a playground area as well as lighted courts for tennis and basketball. Three boat ramps are provided for access to the lake.

Visitors who enjoy nature study will find that Dillon’s trails are pathways to discovery with several miles of trails that lead the hiker to varied habitats of the park.
