We are on the Ohio State Park circuit
as some of our favorite places around home. Being in central Ohio the weather can be a bit unpredictable to say the least. So we check the weather and then just figure out do we head North, East, South or West.
There are 4 parks that are our favorites. All within 1 ˝ hr from home as the longest one. Some day “The Camper”, DW and I will make it out west and up into Canada. Traveled there for work and been out camping there in a tent with the Boy Scouts and want to repeat with the “The Camper”. Some of our National Parks are breathtaking and so is the Provincial Parks in Canada.
So you can see a taste of the Ohio Parks system see these 4 favorites and 1 extra.
Close to Home. Central Ohio. We go to Delaware State Park
It’s an older park but big, lots to do and not so crowded on the main lake.
Here is another medium sized park. Western Ohio. We go to Lake Loramie
A really hommy atmosphere about it.
And last year right near there, we visited this Ohio Healing Field. You can see the date, we will never forget.
Also sort of mid north west, a larger park, we go to Indian Lake State Park
. This park is big and lots to do in the area. For us we can get there in less than an hour and we miss all the city traffic.
Heading south we have many State Parks. We often go to this one Cowan Lake State Park
. It is a medium sized park with a large 10 hp only lake with camper beach. Very nice.
Here you can see how the weather changes. This is April
And this is same site in June
More due south we have Hocking Hills State Park
. We generally do this park in the spring.
There is a lot of natural beauty in this area to hike and go see. It can take many days to weeks to see it all. This is a shot of a water fall within Old Man’s Cave park.
And the same water fall from my son in law who has a fancier camera a year ago. If you look hard, the rocks have not changed, but the water and green did
Traveling north east we have West Branch State Park
This one we only get to once in a while as it is 2 ˝ hrs from home. A very pretty area and the camp grounds have just recently been rebuilt.
And a view from that same camp site out my camper rear window.
It’s hard to just pick just one. And as you can see, we are "Tree Campers"
and like lots of them arround along with a lake near by.
Hope you enjoyed a little taste of Ohio State Park camping.
Happy camping this year which ever direction your travels take you.
