If you’d rather be on the water, rent a pedal or glass-bottom boat, or kayak, and cast off into the clear waters of the lake. Put a line out for bass, bluegill, and catfish; you won’t be disappointed fishing in the well-stocked lake. A beach and swimming area are set aside for those who prefer to dip their toes in the water. When it’s time to move on, unload your tank at the dump station and refill your propane tank on-site. Stop at any one of the numerous gas stations and dozens of grocery and convenience stores in Lancaster to fill up on provisions and refuel your campervan rental before rolling out of town for an exciting journey down the road.
At Hocking Hills State Park, hikers can trek the park's seven major hiking areas. If you want to see some of the most sought-after destinations in the park, take your Lancaster camper rental to the park and head to the Old Man's Cave area where the six-mile Grandma Gatewood Trail starts. The trail then takes you to the Cedar Falls and the Ash Cave hiking areas that are deservedly popular among visitors. Photographers may want to linger at the Devils Bathtub for a good shot of the swirling and cascading waters of the captivating tiered waterfall.
Those who like to explore the outdoors on two wheels should rent a camper near Lakeview Park Campground and hit the enthralling mountain bike trails of Lake Hope State Park. Beginners may want to pedal along the lakeside scenery of the Hope Furnace Trail Loop (4.5-6.5 miles) as there’s little elevation gain along the route. On the other hand, ridge riding awaits cyclists on the ten-mile Copperhead Loop. Adrenaline-seekers looking for white-knuckle riding may want to try the tight turns, switchbacks, and steep climbs and descents at the five-mile Sidewinder Loop. For a sampling of segments of Copperhead, Sidewinder, and Hope Furnace trails, the 16-mile Big Loop is highly recommended.
