Ohio is a wonderful place to visit. The state is home to a number of big cities, meaning there are plenty of museums and other attractions typically found in such places. That said, Ohio also has a lot of rural area. This means you can easily find outdoor recreation and natural areas to explore. 

One of the best ways to see Ohio is with an RV. An RV allows you to hop from spot to spot, always taking your tiny home with you. Not only that, you’ll also have a bed, bathroom, and kitchen with you wherever you roam.

Of course not everyone has an RV, but luckily, RV rentals are an option.

Private RV rentals Ohio are both plentiful and affordable.

  • If you’re looking at a RV or travel trailer rental in Ohio, you can expect to pay around $100–$120 a night.
  • Meanwhile, those looking for a class C and class B motorhome rental in Ohio might pay closer to $200 for each night of their vacation.
  • Finally, there are the class A motorhomes. These rentals can go for as little as $225 a night, but might reach prices of $400 or more.

Discover Ohio in an RV!

Whether you choose a luxury motorhome or a pop-up camper rental in Ohio, you’re going to have an absolute blast during your visit to the Buckeye State. That said, you will want to do a bit of planning before you hit the road. We’re here to help with that. 

US National & State Parks

First, let’s discuss the state parks and national parks sites in the state. There are a number of these gorgeous natural areas, and each and every one is well worth visiting. Not only will you find some amazing hiking and outdoor recreation opportunities, you might just learn a bit of science or history as well.

  • Malabar Farm State Park
  • Kelleys Island State Park

These are our absolute favorites, and they are attractions we think everyone should see at least once.

Those who pick up RV rentals in Ohio will need a place to park those RVs. This is where the state’s numerous RV parks and campgrounds come into play. From luxurious resorts to rustic campground getaways, there is something for everyone in the wonderful state of Ohio. 

Cross Creek Camping Resort

Once you find the perfect RV for rent in Ohio, why not head over to Cross Creek Camping Resort? This Columbus-area resort is in the perfect location for sightseeing, but still offers all the fun of camping. Be sure to take advantage of the many awesome amenities such as frisbee golf, tennis, bike rentals, and pedal carts.

Camper Village - Lighthouse/Cedar Point 

Cedar Point is one of the most popular attractions in Ohio. If you plan to visit this huge amusement park, we highly recommend staying at Camper Village. This RV Park is so close to Cedar Point that you can hear the screams of the roller coaster riders, and the fun is just a short walk away.

Cedar Point

As we mentioned before, Cedar Point is one of the most popular destinations in all of Ohio. This awesome amusement park features lots of incredible coasters, making it the ideal place for thrill seekers young and old. 

Kings Island

Owned by the same people who own Cedar Point, Kings Island is also a good choice. This park has its own set of thrilling rides and coasters and is equally exciting for those adrenaline junkies out there. 

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Are you a fan of rock & roll music? If so, you’re going to love the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Here, all of the most famous and influential rock musicians are given the credit they deserve. 

The Cleveland Museum of Art

Art enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy a day spent at the Cleveland Museum of Art. While there are art museums scattered all around the state, this is one of our favorites. We love the variety of art found here, as well as the many events hosted by the museum.

Cincinnati Art Museum

Cincinnati is home to another fabulous Ohio art museum. This one also features a great variety of art, including traveling exhibits that keep things fresh. Want to make your visit even more fun? Consider visiting during a special event. 

Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden

One of the best zoos in the country can be found in the city of Cincinnati. We love the huge variety of animals found here, as well as the informative and often interactive exhibits. Of course, the gardens found throughout the zoo are also wonderful, making each visit that much better. 

Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

Yet another fabulous zoo can be found in Columbus. We love the many animals found here, and especially appreciate the aquariums that feature some of the ocean's most stunning creatures. 

National Museum of the US Air Force

The US Air Force is a pretty amazing organization, yet most people know very little about it. Visit the National Museum of the US Air Force for an in-depth education on this amazing branch of the US military. 

Coney Island Amusement Park

The Historic Coney Island Amusement Park may not be as big as Cedar Point, but it definitely still deserves a visit. The park has been around for over 130 years and has grown up with Cincinnati, always serving as a place to escape day-to-day life and have a good time. 

National Underground Railroad Freedom Center

The Underground Railroad is a truly fascinating piece of history that absolutely deserves to be learned about. For this reason, we highly recommend a visit to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Here you can learn all kinds of fascinating information on the topic. 

American Sign Museum

Looking for something totally unique to see during your time in Ohio? If so, the American Sign Museum is for you. This museum houses an enormous collection of historic signs and presents information on the design and history of them. 

West Side Market

The oldest indoor/outdoor market in Cleveland, West Side Market is a bustling shopping space that the whole family can enjoy. Shop for fresh meat and produce, baked goods, or locally made gifts.

Cincinnati Museum Center

Those who want to visit a variety of museums in a single visit will appreciate the Cincinnati Museum Center. Here you’ll find the Cincinnati History Museum, Duke Energy Children’s Museum, Museum of Natural History and Science, Robert D. Lindner Family OMNIMAX Theater, Nancy and David Wolf Holocaust and Humanity Center, and Cincinnati History Library and Archives.

Sports and Entertainment

Want even more to see and do? Many sports events, performances, and festivals happen in the state throughout the year. These present even more options for fun things to do during your visit to the Buckeye State. 


Home to many major league teams, Ohio is a wonderful state to visit if you wish to enjoy professional sports games. In fact, the state played a major role in the development of both Major League Baseball and the National Football League. 

Some of the most popular teams found here include the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, the Cleveland Browns football team, the Columbus Blue Jackets hockey team, and the FC Cincinnati soccer team. Minor league teams are also abundant here, meaning there is always a game to watch in the state. 


Looking for great entertainment in Ohio? You won’t have to look far. All of the major cities have wonderful theater, dance, and music groups. Additionally, many concerts are performed in the state throughout the year. Of course, nightlife is always available in the big cities, festivals happen regularly during the warm months, and other forms of entertainment are around every corner. 

Dump Stations

Obviously, you will need to dump the tanks of your Ohio RV rental somewhere. If you’re in a campground with a sewer hookup or a dump station, you can simply get rid of wastewater there. However, those who choose to park their Ohio trailer and motorhome rentals in a place without a sewer dump will need to find another place to take care of this task. 

Here are some of the best dump stations in Ohio:

  • All Seasons RV — This RV dealership in Streetsboro has a dump station open to the public for a small fee. 
  • Rest Area - Middle Ridge Service Plaza Westbound — Located in the town of Amherst, OH, this rest area allows RVs to dump their tanks.
  • Portage Service Plaza — This Mantua service plaza has a dump station available to travelers.

Highways and Airports in Ohio

Clearly, you will need to get to your Ohio RV rental somehow, and this likely means traveling to a new place. Moreover, unless you have it delivered, you will also need to travel around the area after picking up your motorhome or camper trailer in Ohio. For this reason, it’s good to have an idea of how to navigate the state. 


Ohio’s major airports include Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport in Cleveland, John Glenn Columbus International Airport and Rickenbacker International Airport in Columbus, James M. Cox Dayton International Airport in Dayton, Akron-Canton Regional Airport in Akron, and Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Airport in Cincinnati.
