COLUMBUS, OH – Pull out the camping gear, grab the makings for s’mores and leave the wallet at home for a night of free camping with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). The night of free camping will be available at 54 campgrounds within Ohio State Parks on Thursday, April 18.

“I want to encourage Ohioans to start their weekend early by camping at one of our Ohio State Parks campgrounds for free,” said ODNR Director James Zehringer. “This is an excellent opportunity for families to explore new parts of Ohio and find out what is available within our state parks system.”

For this promotion, campers can make a free reservation for a stay that includes the Free Camping Day. To make the reservation, people must call the Ohio State Parks Reservation Call Center at866-644-6727. Customers can also reserve online but will pay the standard reservation fee. Walk-ins are also welcome on April 18, but space is limited.

This promotion will not be available at Jackson Lake State Park or Strouds Run State Park, as these are concession-operated campgrounds.

OK Susan.

Work Buddy Susan has been after me to post about Moraine State Park. Especially Since we’ve walked around it with the post on Windsurfing and McConnells Mill.

I Like Moraine. It’s a multi-use park off 19 and 422 on the other side of New Castle. Not too far, and lots of Activities.

Sure we mentioned the Windsurfing. There’s a beach with concessions, nice bay for kayaking, Picnic Areas, frisbee golf, 10 Boat launch areas for motorboats, sailboats and fishing.

For Hikers there’s 28 miles of hiking trails, 7 mile paved bike trail and 7 mile Mountain bike trail. The north Country Trail Passes through the Park, with a camping shelter on site for through hikers. Also, There’s a guided tour for Cars along Washington’s Trail through the area.

But Wait! There’s More. The Lake Arthur Regatta, Rental CAbins, Primitive Camping, Hunting Areas, Winter activities…You get the idea. Get out and take a look. This is a good weekend Because the Balloon Fest is also taking place in Newcastle, so you’re going to be in the area anyway, right?

And Joe, I Think I’m Ahead.

There’s a Camping shelter on the

100 Days of Summer: Day 20-Time to get Medieval

Last cheat and then back to highlighting the fishing, hiking, camping, kayaking, hunting, climbing and other outdoor recreational opportunities in Northeast Ohio.

If you don’t want to get to a lake this spectacular weekend, if the Cycle race and Summer Festival of the Arts ain’t your thing, then maybe a little trip up 534 to Geneva on the Lake is what you’re looking for.  A Little wine, a little ice cream and a huge honkin’ smoked turkey leg to wave at the wenches might just be the ticket at the Great Lakes Medieval Faire.

And if Not?:
