If You’re Looking for a Mix of Tranquility and Excitement, Look No Further Than Ohio Campgrounds

Ohio residents will proudly tell you that they’re living in the best state in the country, and they aren’t wrong. Sports and entertainment are very prominent in the Buckeye State, but it is the eclectic mix of relaxation and fun that really separates Ohio from other family camping vacation spots.Camp Jellystone’s Ohio campgrounds perfectly mirror this unique combination, and there are campgrounds in Ohio for every family member. Summer camping trips are fantastic, but everyone in the family usually has different expectations for the trip. Ohio campgrounds are extremely well-balanced, and they’re so close to each other that you can visit all three in just one weekend.

Camping vacations are supposed to be fun for everyone, and Ohio is one of those special places that guarantees each person has the time of their life. Here is a brief overview of what Ohio campgrounds have to offer, from serene tranquility to utter excitement:

    • Tranquility- Amish Country. The World’s Largest Amish Community is located in Shreve, OH, but locals know this area as a fantastic camping destination. About 13% of adult campers want to spend more time with their families, and there is no better place to do this than in the Amish Country. Just sit back and relax on a swinging chair with loved ones while you share stories and listen to the chirps of the birds.
    • Relaxation- Columbus North. If you’re looking for a relaxing camping experience with a bit more action, you need to check out the Columbus North campground. It’s one of the best places for tent camping in all of Ohio, but there are also cozy cabins for your family to stay in. Plus, it’s located just minutes from the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Cardinal Center Shooting Center.
  • Excitement- Akron/Canton. Approximately 87% of all campers participated in multiple outdoor activities, but this number is much closer to 100% at the Akron/Canton campground. A 500,000-gallon pool, 144-foot water slide, 100-foot playground slide, and an 18-hole mini golf course are just a few of the amenities offered at this exciting campground.

Campers travel an average distance of 186.7 miles for camping trips, but all three of these unique Ohio campgrounds are within just 100 miles of each other. Learn more about these amazing campgrounds online and choose a vacation that will satisfy every member of the family.
