Ohio is a treasure trove of activities and finds for RVers. From beautiful rivers to scenery that ranges from grassy hills to flat plains, Ohio has much to offer the outdoor enthusiast. With spring in full swing chances are you’ve already had a chance to pull out the RV and start enjoying it. If you haven’t, however, or if you’re planning an upcoming camping trip, you’ll want to check out these 4 Ohio State Parks.
Aptly named for the state’s nickname inspired by the Ohio state tree, Buckeye Lake State Park is actually the oldest state park in Ohio. If you’re a fan of water sports, this is the place for you! It offers swimming, skiing, boating and fishing. The lake was actually built as a canal feeder in 1826 and attracts many waterfowl, making it a great spot for birdwatching during the spring and fall migrations.

Findley State Park is a 838-acre park nestled in the secluded wilderness of Wellington, Ohio. It is a wonderful space that offers boating with electric motors only, along with kayaking and canoeing. You’ll also enjoy fishing for largemouth bass, crappie, and bluegill. And if you love to swim you’ll enjoy the 435 foot beach that offers a concession stand.
Located in Nashport, Ohio, Dillon State Park is tucked deep in the quiet Ohio hill country. This 2,285-acre park offers fishing for the common largemouth bass and the less common muskie.
