Encompassing 52 sq. miles along Cuyahoga River which stretches for 22 miles between Cleveland and Akron, Cuyahoga Valley National Park is great for a getaway. Located between both cities in Ohio, this national park is a refuge for a wide variety of wildlife and plant species, making it a premier destination for nature lovers. Rolling hills, deep forests and open farmlands surround the winding Cuyahoga River.
At the park, campers and visitors get the chance to hike on trails that add up to more than 125 miles, and range in difficulty from easy to strenuous hikes. More than 65 fish species available in the park’s waters also provide exciting angling opportunities for fishing enthusiasts. Horseback riders who bring their horses to the park also enjoy rewarding riding experiences at the park. Canoeing and kayaking in the park is both exciting and dangerous, so it’s an activity that only experienced paddlers engage in. Additionally, bird watching and picnicking are other ways to stay active and enjoy the park.
There are no RV campsites in Cuyahoga Valley National Park as only five primitive campsites are available in the park.
Cuyahoga Valley National Park was established in 2000.
