While we are here in Zanesville we have been staying at Wolfies Campground. There weren’t a lot of options in the area and we wanted something with full hook-ups after a week at Alum Creek with electric only.
Wolfies Campground is a small but fully equipped private campground on TOP of a hill on the north side of Zanesville. It is close to I-70, but not so close that you hear interstate noise all night. The most challenging part of the campground was getting to it – the roads got narrower and narrower and kept going up. Thankfully, we did not meet any other RVs going up. We are hoping for the same as we go down!
The sites at Wolfies are small and close together, like most private campgrounds. We can see all our neighbors, but they are quiet and respectful of our space, which we appreciate. The seasonal campers are on one side of the common spaces (office, pool, laundry) and the short-term campers are on the other side. There are also camping cabins that you can rent. The biggest ding for us is how uneven the sites were. Our site sloped down a lot at the back and one side. Some of the bigger pull-through sites were better, but they seemed reserved for large motorhomes. The best thing was the great wifi. It was the best of any campground we have ever stayed at – fast and consistent.
Wolfies got good reviews and is deserving of those good reviews. The common spaces are especially clean and well maintained. The saltwater pool is small but has a great view overlooking the valley. The laundry is clean and there was a book exchange – which I like! The playground is new and features a pirate ship. There is horseshoes, cornhole, and a game room. The campstore is particularly well-stocked and even carries Longaberger baskets. There are also benches and swings sitting in places to take advantage of the hilltop views. Tom and I sat on a swing one night and watched the sunset.
As we drove all over the area, we were thankful for the central location of our campground. All the major roads converge a mile from here, and there is a 24 hour grocery store, gas stations, and lots of restaurants within a mile. Funk’s Ice Cream and Deli Sandwiches is at the bottom of the hill! If you are coming to Zanesville and need a place to camp for a night or a week, you should certainly consider Wolfies.
