Evergreen RV Park
was chosen for the location of the 2009 iRV2 National Rally for it's amenities, and the surroundings of the beautiful Amish countryside. Often times when we look at websites of campgrounds, it's difficult to get a true feel of the campground, the employees, and the surroundings just from the campground web page, so this past Labor Day weekend, ISLAPP, Warpath and I all took our families to Evergreen Park with the intention of learning more about the park. Saturday morning, we walked through the park and I took nearly a hundred photo's of the park. Below are just a few of those pictures which will give an idea of how clean and new the facility is.
Evergreen RV Park is located just outside the small town of Mount Eaton, Ohio. Just a few hundred yards outside of town, you'll see the welcoming sign of Evergreen.
As you turn into the campground, the newly constructed log buildings used for check-in will be directly in front of you. Drive through the Timber Arch, and the Rally team will be waiting to check you in to the campground.
The main building of the campground houses the office, store and laundry area for the campground. In front of this store area is where we plan to conduct the rig weighing during the check in process for those wishing to have it performed.
Typically, I'm not impressed with Laundry facilities at campgrounds, but this room will welcome all iRV rally attendees with it's numerous brand new machines.
As you are being escorted to your site, you'll be looking through the windows of your camper or car and noticing the beautiful landscaping around the park and buildings. I really wish I could post more of the pictures of how well the facility is decorated. Along with the landscaping, you'll also see the glass atrium with the unique opening glass ceiling panels at the rear of the building that houses the Pool, concession room, and exercise center.
From the rear of the campground, standing at our site, the atrium that house the pool and hot tub is visible.
Of course....what fun is a pool with out testing it out
My daughter gives it her thumbs up
Near the center of the campground is one of the recreation pavilions which will used to host all of our meals, and also be used as our socializing and gathering location. The pavilion has removable sides to protect us from the weather, and also allows the breeze to blow through the facility. What appears to be the wall in the front of the pavilion is actually a stone counter area with built in grills and granite counter top where we'll be preparing and laying out some of our rally meals.
Just a small corner of the inside of the pavilion where we'll be enjoying those meals.
Nearby the pavilion and Pool area is the daughter tested playground
and son tested basketball court
The campground sites themselves are all paved and are a combination of pull through and back in sites. Here's a couple photo of ISLAPP's 35' Adventure and Warpath's 40' Vectra in a couple of the back-in sites.
All sites are set up with a small split rail fence and landscaping between sites. The 50/30/20 amp electric hookup, water, cable and sewer connections are all placed in the landscaping area and protected by the fencing.

More back in sites.......
.......and the back in sites right by the pavilion and pool center. these sites are a little shorter but still can fit most rigs.
The pull though sites are located more in the center of the campground. They were a little more difficult to take photo's of, but here is a photo looking down the first row of pull through sites.

We enjoyed our visit to Evergreen Park, and I hope that some of the pictures give everyone a feel for the park and ammentites. Just before leaving at the end of the weekend, we decided to reserve another weekend this fall at the park since we enjoyed it so much. With all of the things to do in the area, and the indoor/outdoor pool, I know the adults and children will both have fun.
We hope you come join us at the Rally next Summer
