The “Canoe Capital of Ohio” warmly welcomes RV camping in Mohican State Park with an array of activities. This 1,110-acre park is situated between Columbus and Cleveland, next to a state forest four times its size. It’s truly one of the last wild areas left in Ohio, with a variety of flora and fauna, a habitat for white-tailed deer, bald eagles, and red fox. Fishing, hiking, and spectacular views of the surrounding area are all popular at this park. Clearfork Gorge has been designated a National Natural Landmark and is one of the most scenic locations in Ohio. You’ll find no shortage of RV rentals in Ashland County to explore this beautiful area by motorhome.
Mohican State Park has a rich history that started in the last ice age, as glaciers crawled over what is now the park, carving out the gorges, ridges, and valleys that make up the current landscape. The Delaware tribe of Native Americans lived off the land that would eventually be settled by Europeans. Johnny Appleseed spent much of his time here, etching his name in a stone wall next to one of the park’s waterfalls. The name has since eroded, but visitors can find other remnants of history throughout the area. The current park was established in 1949, carved out of existing state forest land.
Despite its small size, Mohican State Park has an expansive network of trails on both water and land. There are over 27 miles of navigable waters at Mohican State Park running through its canyons and forests. Kayaks and canoes are welcome in the many rivers and creeks; if you just want to lazily float the day away, try tubing on the Clear Fork River.
With an Ohio state fishing license, you can cast your line in most of the park's streams. You'll find many species of fish within the park, including largemouth bass, brown trout, bluegill, and white crappie. Struck out fishing? Try your hand mining for gems in designated areas, available by paying a small fee.
As far as hiking trails go at Mohican State Park, you can explore 13 miles of trail ranging from easy half-mile trails to more challenging trails up to three miles in length. Go on your own or participate in the numerous hikes let by rangers and naturalists to learn even more about the area. These short yet excellent trails will take you to viewpoints overlooking the gorge, through the gorge itself, to the park's two waterfalls, and through the park's beautiful and unique hemlock forests. Some of the hiking trails are also shared with mountain biking trails; Mohican State Park contains 25 miles of trails for mountain bikers.

Mohican State Park hosts one of the oldest 100-mile ultramarathons in the U.S. Running 100 miles isn't for everyone, so the calendar also includes a 50-miler and a traditional marathon. Park visitors make great cheerleaders for the runners and even volunteer to help with the runs, typically held in June.
There are many other recreational opportunities immediately surrounding Mohican State Park. Anglers and boaters will find more water and bigger fish at Pleasant Hill Lake, just outside of the park, and Charles Mill Lake a little further to the north. You may access the rest of Mohican-Memorial State Forest from the park where you can enjoy even more hiking trails, hunting zones, and snowmobiling trails in the winter. Other winter activities include skiing at Clear Fork and the Snow Trails family-owned ski resort in nearby Mansfield.
The town of Loudonville is just a few minutes outside the park, where you can fill up your tank and replenish your stores before continuing on your RV camping adventure.

Be sure to visit the historic Wolf Creek Grist Mill and its restored waterwheel before leaving Loudonville.
