There are a lot of great reasons to camp in Ohio. History buffs will appreciate the fact that no fewer than eight U.S. presidents were born in the Buckeye State. For fans of more temperate summers, Ohio is also one of the best states to camp with max summer temps only reaching the 80s F. There are also several fantastic RV campgrounds that make Ohio an ideal place to camp. If you are considering buying a Specialty RV, the following list of campgrounds are well worth a visit.
- Scenic Hills RV Park. Located in the northeast part of the state in Millersburg, Scenic Hills RV Park is perfect if you want to visit Amish country. Schrock’s Amish Farm and Holmes County Amish Flea Markets are among nearby attractions. While the RV park doesn’t offer much beyond basic amenities, it does offer 112 full hookup sites, including six “super sites” and 40 pull-throughs on 30 acres of rolling hills.
- Long’s Retreat Family Resort. For an action-packed family getaway, Long’s Retreat Family Resort in Latham certainly delivers. Not only are full RV hookups available put there is also plenty to do on-site such as taking a dip in the beach swimming area, taking a plunge down waterslides, canoeing and riding the paddle boats. For those who prefer dry land, you can play a round of mini-golf, drive go-karts or play a game of tennis. If that weren’t enough, nearby attractions include Hocking Hills Canopy Tours.
- Buckeye Lake KOA. This campground has the winning combination of being easy to get to right off the interstate while being just far enough away to offer complete peace and relaxation. This Buckeye Lake location has everything you would expect from a KOA campground as well as a swimming pool, game room, shuffleboard court, pedal carts, mini-golf, playground equipment and so much more. There is also a schedule of events with themed weekends such as “KOA Kids Day” and a “Specialty RV/KOA Customer Appreciation Rally.”
- Camp Sandusky. Situated near Lake Erie, Camp Sandusky offers four different types of RV camping spaces in addition to proximity to a variety of attractions. Nearby attractions include Cedar Point amusement park, African Safari Wildlife Park, Kelleys Island (located in the western basin of Lake Erie), Ghostly Manor, Miller Boat Line and Put-in-Bay, just to name a few.
