Starting to think about 2017 Ohio HOC Rally sites. Will hold true to the same dates, August 18 - 20, 2017, so that must be available from the park.

Where you wanna go?

Want to go back to Scenic Hills (http://www.scenichillsrvpark.com/) in Amish Country? Cross Creek (http://www.alumcreek.com/cccr/index.html) in Columbus?

Up around Sandusky (http://koa.com/campgrounds/sandusky/)? Shelby/Mansfield (http://koa.com/campgrounds/shelby/) Area? NE Ohio (http://koa.com/campgrounds/streetsboro/) and the Cleveland area? South Central Ohio (http://www.longsretreat.com)? Click on these links to see some ideas I've thought of.

Where am I missing? Know of a park I don't have on here (I'm not going to do a fairgrounds) that could accommodate 20 big rigs? Post the website on your reply.

Would you rather go somewhere where the park is the attraction? Where the attractions around the park are the draw?

Post some thoughts and ideas. Not only where you think would be a good idea, but somewhere you'll support by being there in 2017.

Let me hear ya! A one. A two. A three.......

We missed the rally at Scenic Hills but have stayed there before and it was very nice. If you decide to have the 2017 rally there we would definitely try to make it. Spring Valley campground in Cambridge, Ohio was nice the last time I was there but that was several years ago so I don't know what it is like now. Just heard about Autumn Lake Campground in Sunbury,Ohio that has good reviews. I don't know anything about it so we may have to drive up there to check it out. Cambridge,Ohio is a nice area with plenty of good restaurants, The Wilds Safari park is close by, and there are many antique shops, etc. close by.

Cross Creek in Columbus looks nice and it also looks like it has plenty of shade for a hot August.

Like the thought of Cambridge. I'll check out Spring Valley CG. Thanks for your input!

Thanks for your input. It is a nice place for a Rally. Not sure if we want to use C'bus as a central location every other year, and "venture out" for the off years. That's a consideration I'd like to bounce off of others.

What about those of you in our neighboring states?

What can we do to get you to the Great State of Ohio next August?

Where would you like to visit if you came?

Didn't mean to limit it to just us Buckeyes.:D

You'll never make everyone happy and I understand your thought process. We'd surely like to make it to an Ohio rally sometime but that will only happen if the timing was different.
Rally on Ohio!!!

As I mentioned, I haven't been to Spring Valley since I retired five years ago. Latest reviews of this park say that the interior roads are pretty rough due to heavy rains. A lot of RV parks in central and Eastern Ohio are being heavily used by the workers involved in drilling and Fracking. It's not that far a drive for me so we may check it out as well.

Few thoughts of some areas that have some various activities or attractions close by.

Loudonville OH, There is Mohican Adventures Campground and several others that are along the Mohican River. Various activities such as canoeing, golfing, antiques and Amish nearby.
Port Clinton Tall Timbers seems to be a nice campground. The area has many things to do/see including PUT In Bay.
Hocking Hills area is nice also. There is a KOA that is in the area that could probably support a rally.

The Hocking Hills area is fantastic! However, I wonder if ANY of the campgrounds in the area would "hold" 20 sites for any weekend in the Summer? The Commander and I ride the hills often, and that area is absolutely packed during Summer school break. However if folks were interested, I could ride down to the KOA, and ask about it (well, actually let the Commander do the talking) :)

I'm thinking between Hocking Hills and Port Clinton, we might be dialing up the next TWO years! Thanks so much for all the great input.

From the Hocking Hills KOA:


Hi Bob,

Thanks for your email. Because of our location in the beautiful Hocking Hills our campground terrain is just like it sounds...hilly! As much as we would love to have your folks stay with us, we would be challenged to accommodate that many rigs due to their size. We would recommend that you check with the Hocking Hills Visitors center to see if they could recommend another campground in the area that may fit your needs. We appreciate you considering us and hope you are able to find a place in our area that would work.

Happy camping!

Your Hosts Kurt & Lori Hostetter, CPOs

Cuttys sunset resort www.cuttyssunset.com in Louisville, Ohio is nice. We are going there in August. We go there at least once a season. It is close to the Hartville Flea Market, Hartville Kitchen (very good food) Hartville Hardware (huge store), Football Hall of Fame and close to Camping World. The campground has activities every weekend.

We don't see you and Linda signed up for the Rally yet. Don't make Mike eat ice cream without you. Lol. We are going to Cross Creek this weekend. You guys should have tried the Hartville Kitchen. They have awesome home cooked food. Did you get rid of your squirrels you had in Tennessee?

Here's one I haven't seen mentioned yet - Sauder Village in Archbold OH. They recently expanded the campground and have the pioneer village, Sauder Furniture outlet, a bakery, a restaurant, use of the hotel pool, and several shops on the property.
We have held rallies there before the expansion, they were very nice to work with.

Thanks for your input! We'll definitely check it out. (When we had a house, we LOVED that Sauder wood furniture.)

We stayed at Mohican Adventures Campground about 2 years ago and found it to be really nice. The staff was very accommodating and they had a very nice in-door pool too. It can handle big rigs and the surroundings are very nice.

I was going to say 'Go Michigan' . . .

Until I saw that this was about an Ohio HOC Rally!

Even though we are now located in Colorado (21 years now), we are originally from mid-Michigan (Jackson) . . . so had to jump in here!

May want to remove Longs Retreat from the list at least until they get this figured out. http://www.chillicothegazette.com/story/news/2016/07/14/pike-county-outbreak-longs-retreat/87099992/?hootPostID=7d0b7b1f45fa1977dc7bc48eed01d508

Thanks for letting us know.

We tell people all the time in our business that the Noro virus doesn't just happen on cruise ships, it happens everywhere. It's just that cruise ships are mandated by law to report it. Hotels and other places aren't mandated by the same maritime laws. It's rarely reported by the media unless there's a big outbreak. Case in point.....

East fork state park. We love it. It is a park that will spoil you. Great roads, great pass, all bath house have been updated. All sites have 30/50 amp. They just installed more full hookups. They it has beach and lake access. Amish country is less than a hour away. Cincinnati is about 30 minutes away. Old fire house brewery is less than then minutes. Campground is well groomed with a variety of large sites.
