Wolf's Motorhome Modifications
... and Other Stuff
Camping Around Ohio
This is a work in progress and will be added to as questions come up. It is by no means a complete list of things to do.
There are Zoos in Cleveland (the best of them), Toledo, Columbus and Akron. One membership will get you into all of them for free. In fact, a membership will often get you into nearly ALL zoos you come across for free. We've visited zoos in many cities around the country.
Cedar Point Amusement Park
When my kids were smaller we'd stay at Cedar Point's RV park some ten times a year. It really made the park enjoyable. Since that time they have eliminated it and then flipped and reinstalled the park. I have not been to the new park but hear it's nice. I prefer Cedar Point to Six Flags (next entry) because the motorhome was at the park ... and CP has a nice beach.
Cedar Point's season pass is cheap and good for a few other places. Hitting all the park pass sites can be a good theme for a vacation.
Kings Island has an RV park next to it. It's a short walk or bus ride to the park. The season pass is good for all the Paramount Parks. One summer we hit Canada's Wonderland (just north of Toronto), King's Island (north of Cincinnatti), King's Dominion (Virginia) and Carowinds (on the North Carolina/South Carolina border) on one trip. Visitors from the US will find Canada's Wonderland very interesting.
Six Flags Amusement Park
The TV ads imply their season pass are good elsewhere. Again, a great theme for a vacation would be to hit all the parks the season pass will allow.
Downtown Cleveland is easier to get to than you'd
think. I wouldn't take my motorhome and toad down there but once camped,
the ride in is easy. As with any city, avoid rush hour and have a map
handy. Street Atlas has great maps of the downtown areas.
You have the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Mather Steamship Museum, Great Lakes Science Museum and a number of other museums in Cleveland proper. Another cluster of museums are in University Circle (Nature, Art, etc.) All are easy drives in. There are normally tickets for the Indians games but call first. Watching baseball games in stadiums other than your own can be a lot of fun. Buy a license plate for the stadium and start collecting them.
Information on Ohio State Parks
Don't forget the Zoos in the winter! The animals have very little company and are more likely to interact with winter visitors.
Between Toledo and Cleveland
Milan, Ohio hosts Edison's Birthplace.
African Lion Safari, near Sandusky, is a lot of fun,
especially in a motorhome.
Work in Progress
This is a work in progress. As a question comes up regarding camping and sites in Ohio, my information will be added here.
