Post trip report: Did the Air Force museum, Kings Island and the Zoo. Had to plan our week around the rain that was hit and miss all week. Everything turned out fine. The Air Force museum I could have spent 2 days at. I couldn't believe all the planes inside in air conditioning.
Found Kings island to be just great except for the food pricing
. Made a mistake in thinking some indoor roller coaster was going to be a tame one, in fact is was ^%$@!)&
....I should have known when they called it "Flight of Fear". The little girl sitting next to my wife said "this is the roughest ride in the park". I was wondering why they were strapping us in with lap belts and shoulder restraints. Before we knew it we were shot out like a cannon into the darkness in all sorts of directions.
The zoo was more compact than the Cleveland zoo. Most of the pathways were well shaded. There were a lot of people for a Saturday, but the place didn't seem crowded....
The Stonelick State Park was about 30 minutes from Cincinnati. The campgrounds has about 110 sites. about 100 with electric service. About 80% are level and most sites are full or semi shady. About 4-5 sites are lake front. There were maybe 20 or 25 RV's camped during the week, but the weekend was nearly full. A large sign by the office said "It is a rule do not
park your vehicles on the grass". On the weekend there were a average of 2-3 cars on the grass per site. Some sites had 5 cars parked in and around a site. Humm??? The sites on average were nice sized, but some people had 3-4 tents per sites or a trailer and 3 more tents. The showerhouse was so-so, could have been kept cleaner....
