This message is for who runs Great Parks of Hamilton County. Today all of us at Steamboat Bend Campground received an email that the campground is closing for good November 2019. To give your facebook followers an idea of how Great Parks of Hamilton operates please listen to my story. My husband I have camped here for 12 years. When we came the park was totally full and continued to be for a few years then things started to go down hill. I have never seen the park system try to promote Steamboat Bend to make it any better. Then there was an electrical issue they said. So they fix a small portion of the campground for us seasonal folk. We were thrilled to have just that. NOW THEY ARE CLOSING THE ENTIRE PARK ALONG WITH PICNIC AREA AND BOAT DOCK because they can't afford to clean it up when the river floods, which all they do is clear debris and throw gravel down. To conclude, the main reason for trying to make people aware....this is not only happening here but at a lot of the parks in the Cincinnati area due to MISMANAGEMENT of The Great Parks of top management and now we have to pay the consequences. Rah Rah Bill Mowrey and all of you above him. YOU WIN. Happy? ... See MoreSee Less

Well said. They have been wanting this for a long time and finally got their way. We love this place as does everyone else who stays there. The river does not flood all the time, but still this is one of the reasons why we hear it is closing. The boat dock will remain open, but that too was an effort to have open much. I can only say that we will truly miss our little piece of heaven, even if it was sort of left by the wayside by Great Parks.

I totally agree! We have been camping there for approximately 9 years. All neighbors mowed their lots, planted flowers and took pride in their lots without any help from Great Parks. We have become family. Great Parks has not invested any money into this campground . This campground could show a return on their money as we have seen all 55 sites full over the past years. There has been a waiting list the last couple of years of people wanting in but they would only open 20 sites. This isn’t the 1st park they have closed this year. Miami Whitwater waterpark has been closed-they don’t want to invest money although these people voted for the levy to repair their water park. Where’s the money going? Great Parks, invest in some more walking trails-you will get a big return on your money! I think all the board should leave not just the president. Someone has cloudy vision there!

You could never get in to camp. Adams county has great parks and Pike county 🤠

What a view from our campsite at Steamboat Bend. Sadly we will not have this view after Nov. 2 because the GP board has elected to close this campground. They had a bunch of lame excuses including flooding. In my 9 years here I’ve seen water in the campground 3 times, but only once was it high enough to reach the electric boxes. We have been told for several years that Steamboat would get electrical upgrades. Well, the levy passed and GP decided to close Steamboat and spend the money on something else. If this campground were properly operated it would generate enough income to be nearly self sustaining. It’s a shame that a few people can generate as much animosity among the users as this board of directors.
