 April has been designated as “Go Camping Month” at Ohio state parks, and to celebrate, the state park campgrounds are offering a special 25 percent discount.

The 25 percent discount applies to regular camping fees in any of Ohio State Parks’ 55 family campgrounds or 16 horseman’s camps. The 25 percent discount also applies to getaway rentals, including Rent-a-Camp, Rent-a-RV, yurt, tepee, camper cabin and cedar cabin units offered at 38 state parks, WMFD-TV, Mansfield, reported.

The camping and getaway rental discount, available now through April 30, is offered on overnight stays, and cannot be combined with other discounts.

“April is a good time to get a great campsite at our most popular campgrounds that fill up quickly in the summer,” said Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) Deputy Director Glen Cobb. “The parks are ready to welcome guests, and many are offering guided wildflower hikes and birding programs on the weekends for spring visitors.”

Campsites and getaway rentals can be reserved up to six months in advance by calling 866-OHIOPARKS (866-644-6727), or online at Reservations are encouraged, but not required. Each campground offers a limited number of walk-in only sites, and campers may choose any unoccupied campsite that has not been reserved during their stay.

In addition to the discount, April campers and getaway rental guests can also earn points on their Ohio State Parks rewards card, which can be redeemed later for free overnight stays when enough points are accumulated. The rewards card is available free of charge by calling the state parks’ reservation number, 866-OHIOPARKS (866-644-6727), by signing up on, or in person at Ohio State Park business offices during normal business hours.
