For many, campgrounds are the best feature of RVing. This is because campgrounds are very welcoming, have amenities like pools and hot tubs, and offer full hookups for your RV. Still, it can help to know which RV campgrounds are best in the state, which is why RVshare provides a campground page for Ohio cities and the state in general. For example, one of the best in the state is Berlin RV Park and Campground; this campground not only has back-in and pull-through sites, but it also provides discounts to Good Sam Club members as well as members of the armed forces.
Ohio is home to one of the 60 United States national parks, and it’s known for its picturesque beauty. This park is Cuyahoga Valley National Park, and for those who love hiking, this park has more than 125 miles of trails to explore. This is also a great park to visit at different times of the year since it’s known for its distinct seasons, which means that the activities and overall experience will change from month to month. This national park is about 7 miles from Akron, and it’s fairly close to Cleveland as well.
From time to time, you may need to store your RV rental during your trip, and Ohio has hundreds of locations across the state to consider when you need a safe and secure place to keep your vehicle. These facilities are usually covered so that the vehicle will be protected from both the elements and thieves. Some great options include Clearcreek Self Storage in Waynesville and Elite Indoor Boat and RV Storage in Pataskala.
Throughout the state, you’ll be pleased to know that there are countless places where you can dump your gray or black water sewage. These include places that aren’t RV campgrounds like the Vermillion Valley Travel Plaza in Amherst or the Bay Shore Resort in Andover. Additionally, many campgrounds also provide this service. A couple of good examples of this would be the Hickory Lake Campground in Ashland or Ryan’s Run RV Park in Felicity. Some dumpstations charge, so it may help to ask ahead of time.
With a whole state to explore, you may be wondering where to visit during the July 4th holiday.

If you are considering a rental from RVshare, then you will need to be 25 years of age to be approved.
Just like any vehicle that you rent, with camper rentals in Ohio, you are going to need to have insurance that will cover the vehicle in the event that there is an accident. If you do not have insurance that you can use for the rental, then take a look at our insurance page for more information about your options.
When you rent an RV, it’s a good practice to bring the RV back with a full tank. At the same time, not all owners require it, so be sure to communicate with the RV owner before you rent so that you understand his or her refueling requirements.
One-way RV rentals in Ohio are available, but it is not always an option with every RV owner. It's important to ask the renter if a one-way rental is an option prior to renting your vehicle.
