Discover American Wilderness Campground

On the fringes of the Cleveland metropolitan area of northern Ohio is the American Wilderness Campground. Just south of Lake Erie and the famed “Vacationland” tourism region, you can pick up your Grafton campervan rental and have a fantastic experience in the Buckeye State, traveling around to various cities, parks, lakefront beaches, and other exciting destinations.

“Vacationland” is the title given to the section of northern Ohio on the edges of Lake Erie, thanks to its popularity with people living in the Midwest. Each year, vacationers flock to RV parks like American Wilderness Campground to spend their vacation in the popular area. RV camping, tent camping, primitive camping, and group camping: this incredible campground has it all. Toilets, showers, dumping facilities, and other essential amenities are offered by the park, too, in addition to campsites with electric, water, and sewer hookups.

American Wilderness Campground is much more than a place to stay, with tons of features to help make things exciting. The facility doubles as an event center for large group get-togethers, weddings, family reunions, company retreats, and more. A large swimming lake in the center of the park provides guests with a pleasant place to cool off in the summertime, and it's fully stocked for fishing too. There are boat rentals, playgrounds, an adventure park, a recreation room, a game room, basketball hoops, volleyball courts, and an array of hiking trails circling the park, so be sure to consider staying at American Wilderness Campground when you book an RV in Lorain County.

The Great Outdoors

Vast urban areas are often associated with Ohio, but the state's northern region is also home to some unique landscapes and incredible parks. When you rent an RV near American Wilderness Campground, you can easily find your way to dozens of state parks in the area, like Findley State Park, just a short drive away. This small, heavily-wooded recreation area has lovely hiking paths lined with wildflowers and nearly 300 campsites where you can stay with your Grafton travel trailer rental for a peaceful night’s sleep out in nature. Beaches, boat ramps, and swimming areas contribute to Findley State Park's features.

Portage Lakes State Park is on the other side of Akron to the east and is another worthy park often visited by vacationers. The 2,000-acre park has eight small lakes, several swimming areas, and some great secluded fishing spots.

East Harbor State Park is over on the Marblehead Peninsula; it's a major part of “Vacationland,” and one of the state’s most popular recreation areas thanks to its lavish views of Lake Erie. The park is just north of Sandusky, with a historic lighthouse, a marina, beaches, picnic areas, several miles of hiking trails, and a disc golf course. There is a small campground by the water where guests can camp.

When you're camping at American Wilderness Campground, you might want to consider a visit to the state’s lone national park. Cuyahoga Valley National Park is close to Cleveland, offering an oasis of peace and quiet in the forest to help get away from the noise of the city. This small but heavenly nature park has serene waterfalls, gorgeous geological features, some historic sites, and campgrounds to stay at. A visitor center on-site helps showcase the archaeological sites of Cuyahoga Valley National Park left behind by ancient native peoples.

City Sightseeing

While camping in northern Ohio, you can see a bevy of attractions with the help of your campervan rental. Nearby Elyria contains the Hickories Museum, run by the Lorain County Historical Society. This incredible resource hosts a gallery of artifacts, old letters, photographs, and other remnants of the past in an effort to preserve the history and tell the story of Lorain County.

Akron is not far from the campsites at American Wilderness Campground either, so a quick ride into the city allows you to see places like the Akron Art Museum. Tour the building to see some special glass structures, massive sculptures, and modern artwork decorating the walls of the interesting-looking building in the heart of the city.

While not on the same level as major city zoos, the Akron Zoo has more than enough to appease animal lovers and children. A massive menagerie of animals from all over the globe call the Akron Zoo home, with beautifully landscaped grounds, nice pathways, helpful staff, and a whole lot more.

Between Akron and Cleveland, you’ll have more than enough to keep you busy when you rent an RV near American Wilderness Campground in northern Ohio.
