Visiting Ohio on Your Next Road Trip



Heading southeast from the Hoosier State, the Shawnee State Forest welcomes RVers to the southern reaches of Ohio. And what a welcome it is, 5,000 acres of wilderness snuggling up to the Ohio River as it cuts the border between Ohio and Kentucky.

Just a few miles southeast of Columbus is the Hocking Hills State Park, where you’ll find a fantastic display of sandstone formations worn down by the local streams that have been there for thousands of years. Nearby is Wayne National Forest, which puts on a dazzling display during the fall months. This lush forest also contains several covered bridges and rivers, which are no strangers to fishermen and canoeists alike.

The shores of northern Ohio grace the waters of Lake Erie. Here, one will find the Lake Erie Islands, an island cluster that beckons birders, boaters and wine lovers (yes, wineries, too). However, a visit here requires some forethought. Automobiles are allowed on the island, but you have to take a ferry to reach the shores.
Outside of Cleveland is the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area, a 24-mile stretch following the Erie Canal. The area also offers alternative ways to see this scenic region aboard the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.
