RV Camping in Ohio

Boondocking is what we do best! This is our preferred way to to camp and we have found some amazing, epic places we want to share with you! But we are also members of Boondockers WelcomeEscapees and Thousand Trails. So we’re here to share our tips on all the locations we stay in Ohio. We are full time RV travelers, so we will be updating this blog often!

Ohio was one of our favorite states, and we haven’t had a chance to go back yet. We definitely have it on our list to go back very soon!


  • Kinderhook Horse Camp: GPS: 39.405989, -81.224947 Newport, Ohio – We loved this place! We were greeted with open arms from all the horse trail people, and even had a great conversation with the man who runs the area. He was happy to have us there watching over (so to speak) the area. Police drive through the loop every few days, and though some cars came and went during the night, it was super quiet and peaceful. Good cell service! Real close to a neighborhood, so cell service with ATT was good. We did not have our Verizon service yet, so I’m not sure how that is there. I will update this when we go back. 
  • Lane Farm: GPS: 39.435001, -81.359001 This was a nice little 5 or 6 spot area (large rigs can fit in spot #1 or Spot #2. We ended up only staying here 1 night. There was a lot of activity here. We ended up moving up to the above boondocking horse camp from here. But it is right off the main highway. Trash cans available and bathroom available. It’s an ok spot, but just very busy with it being right off the road. No cell service what so ever!
Lane Farm – Spot #2

Thousand Trails

We actually had Kenisee Lake RV Campground booked when the COVID 19 virus started, and because of closures and stay in place orders we had to cancel. Will update our review once we actually are able to get there!

  • Kenisee Lake RV Campground – Jefferson, OH
  • Wilmington RV Resort – Wilmington, OH

Paid Campgrounds

Old Man’s Cave Campground – Logan Ohio. This campground was a great campground for exploring Hocking Hills State Park. Our biggest problem was the sites (at the time) were very thin, and we ended up with a couple tires off the side of the “pad” they have you park on. It’s a very convenient area for exploring Logan, Ohio. Also, (see picture below) the hill you climb from the check in point is pretty intense, and steep. Good to know!

  1. I’ve been dreaming of traveling by RV for a very long time. All these years, my husband and I postponed our trip, but due to COVID-19, now it’s the most optimal way to travel. I think we should take a short route for the first time, just for the experience, and Ohio seems like the best option! Thank you for this post. I can’t wait for our trip!

    1. I hope you enjoy and relax and have a great adventure. We’ve entered into our 5th year of full-time travel and can’t think of another way we’d want to experience this country. Be safe and stay well!
