1 Campground Reviews for Leith Run - Newark, OH

Quiet little Campground in quiet place


Love this campground. It's small, quiet, and mostly in the middle of nowhere. Nearest "real" town is Marietta-about 30 minutes away. Not lots to do at the campground, or around the campground, but it's a great place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. BTW - Leith Run is no where near Newark Ohio - it is very near Newport Ohio however.
