If it's time to take your family away from the hustle and bustle of city life, then the best place to go is the great outdoors. Many campgrounds in Ohio are geared specifically toward young families with all the amenities and family-friendly atmosphere that you could ask for. Here are five great campgrounds for families to enjoy in the state.
Pine Cove Campground is a family-owned and operated campground and RV park, accommodating everything from tents to large RVs. They have a specific focus on providing a family atmosphere with activities for both children and adults like swimming, canoeing, corn hole, basketball and more.
The Dayton KOA Campground has all the amenities available for kids who aren't looking to live too rough during your vacation. With electricity, running water, mini golf, bike rentals, and more, you can get away without having to leave life behind. But you can also enjoy fishing in the lake and nature walks around the grounds.
The Frontier Campground in Waynesville spans 11 acres and is within walking distance of the Spring Valley Wild Life Area and the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail. With a playground, basketball, ping-pong, ski ball, movies, music, and more at the lodge, it's the perfect family getaway.
The Lazy River at Granville is a top 100 rated park located in the beautiful Welsh Hills. It's located far away from freeway and railroad noise, so you truly feel like you're in the isolated wilderness, but the area attractions are perfect for a young family with kids. Zip line, swimming pool, gem mine, mini-golf and more, are just a short drive away!
This KOA campground is over 40 years-old, but they make a point of staying up to date with the standards of fun for kids and adults alike. New amenities are being added all the time, including a jumping pillow, gem mine, and swimming pools.
