Ohio State Parks offer a night of free camping

COLUMBUS — Pull out the camping gear, grab the makings for s’mores and leave the wallet at home for a night of free camping with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

The night of free camping will be available at 54 campgrounds within Ohio State Parks April 18.


For this promotion, campers can make a free reservation for a stay that includes the free camping day. To make the reservation, call the Ohio State Parks Reservation Call Center at 866-644-6727.

Customers can also reserve online but will pay the standard reservation fee. Walk-ins are also welcome April 18, but space is limited.

This promotion will not be available at Jackson Lake State Park or Strouds Run State Park, as these are concession-operated campgrounds.
