Wandering Around America One State at a Time – Ohio

State 32:

Welcome to the next post in my series highlighting states we have visited throughout the years. I hope you will enjoy coming along for the ride!

I will be featuring the states alphabetically. The next state in my series is


Ohio became the 17th  state on March 1, 1803. The capital is Columbus.

Before our RV days, we made two trips to Ohio to attend family weddings. The first time was to Dayton in 1980. The next time was a St. Patrick’s Day weekend trip to Cleveland. We left home with the sun shining and azaleas blooming. In Cleveland, we were freezing as we gazed at the ice on Lake Erie.

Our RV travels have taken us through Ohio a few times. We discovered Sun Valley RV Park in Chilicothe on one of those trips. This peaceful RV park is off the beaten path and a perfect overnight stop for weary travelers. We enjoyed it so much we returned a few years later when our route took us that way again.

On one trip our journey took us through the Amish country around Mt. Eaton. We discovered Evergreen RV Park, another gem of a park perfect for an overnight stop. I had read reviews of this park which raved about the cleanest and nicest RV park bath house they had ever seen. How could we pass that up? Even better still, there was an indoor pool onsite so after a swim I tried out the bath house and the reviews were right on the money!

We did a little shopping in an Amish store near the RV park. I stocked up on Amish goodies and I was a happy camper!

  1. Another interesting and helpful post! We may have to drive through Ohio sometime and these would be ideal stops. We’ve visited family in Ohio years ago-they’ve all since moved. So there’s really no place there on our “bucket” list. But we’ve decided we don’t want to just drive through another state without stopping to smell the roses on the way through!

      1. Yes, there is beauty in every state! We’ve definitely decided to change up what we’re doing a bit to see as much as we can now. I’ll read your post as I’m sure there is something there for us, too! Thanks Beth!

  2. It seems as if every time we are in Ohio, whichever way we are going, we are just eager to get through it. You are right that every state has wonderful things to offer and, perhaps, someday, we will linger a little bit in Ohio.
