Enjoy the winter camping season throughout Ohio

Has old man winter got you dreaming of sitting around a campfire looking up at the stars, making memories, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors?

What are you waiting for? Nothing says you have to wait for warmer weather to go camping.

Grab your tent or an RV, a good sleeping bag, and let’s go winter camping!

Spending time outdoors doesn’t stop just because the temperature takes a dip. The air is crisp, there are no crowds, and many exciting winter adventures await you to come out and play. In fact, many believe it is the best time of the year to head out to the woods.

Many state parks remain open throughout the winter, offering limited sites. However, electricity and water are often not available.

If you are a diehard, winter tent camping is a unique and exciting experience. Whether you visit East Harbor State Park on the shores of Lake Erie, explore the rugged beauty of Hocking Hills, or any getaway spot in Ohio, there are campgrounds to satisfy all your cold weather interests. And for those who want something a bit more comfy and warm, RV sites are also available.

Grab the snowshoes and sleds and head out to one of the parks with a good snowpack. If you enjoy fishing, grab your rods and search for campgrounds with ice fishing. Horseback trails are also open throughout the year.

Make sure and pack plenty of hot cocoa and marshmallows to help warm you up by the fire but don’t forget to look up and see the countless stars shimmering like glitter across the winter night sky.
