Great Campgrounds and Amenities

Mohican offers great accommodations and clean facilities. It’s not the most secluded spots but if you are looking for something tucked away there a few sites. The ability to tube down the river and walk back to your camp site was so much fun. Trailheads are located right of the grounds and the surrounding area is full of great things to do. If swimming is your thing the pool is clean and well maintained and situated between two ridgelines so you float and stare around at wooded hillsides. Great after a day of hiking or crushing the mountain biking trails. Grab a walk-in site or one by the river. No problems with hammocks in sites we chose but not all sites have enough mature trees.

One of my all-time favorites

Where the glaciers stopped and the hills of Ohio begin. I have always loved visiting and camping here. Rich in history, culture, and nature, it is very easy to spend days here and do it all. Camping, Fishing, hiking, canoeing, activities, programs, the list goes on. Some parts of the park do get crowded at certain times of the year but if you know where to go you feel like you are the only one there.

Beautiful river, trails, running water in the toilets, yay!

I love Mohican State Park. There is so much to do- canoeing, kayaking, tubing, creeking, and great trails also.

This campground is nice but is crowded in the warmer months. Look for a site along the water, that's where the tree cover is. I stayed in a camper cabin which was very nice, with microwave and refrigerator.

There is running water in the toilets, which is nice for a state park in Ohio. The showers were decent, nothing to complain about there.

The primitive tent camping sites looked nice and peaceful- take care to get a shaded spot, though, as some were just exposed in a grassy field. There is a long bumpy walk from the parking area to the primitive sites, so bring a wagon or sled or something.

large campground

there are no water hook ups so fill your tanks on entering..there's a pool and many restrooms and bath houses. sites are close together. nice store and activities

Beautiful mohican state park

This camp ground is a first come first serve. It has several hiking trails.

Tubing, hiking and biking - Oh my!

Located in the Clear Fork Gorge, the Mohican State Park Campground is a 1,110-acre state park offering over 221 campsites, 25 cabins and 3 camper cabins. There are plenty of deep electric sites and several primitive tent sites that offer access to the Clear-Fork Mohican River. They also have a pool, but we haven't used it, since we were there in April.

Our primary reason for staying here was to ride the single track mountain bike trail: "Ohio's longest single track." It's a 25+ mile single track that starts and ends at the campground. We also hiked several of the trails. One runs along the ridge line and another along the river.

We stayed for a week and really enjoyed our stay. Bathrooms are clean, showers were good enough to get off the grime and the camp store employees were friendly and informative. The sites are close together and mostly shaded. If you want to see the stars at night, look for a site 1-64. They have less trees around them. The sites that butt up against the North Rim Trail tend to be a bit muddier. Fun for kids/dogs - but not for keeping your patio rug clean. There's plenty of fun for the kids - bring a tube to float down the river. There are several launching points. The rangers have activities available on the weekend. We did archery and a scavenger hunt.

It can be sort of loud at night, mainly because voices can carry, but it's a great campground. There are also several outfitters close-by that can assist in exploring the area around the campground.

** We stayed in a 32 foot motor home.

Escape to Paradise

My husband and I love to utilize Mohican weather for hiking, backpacking, or or simply camping. we love campground B- the primitive sites as it gives campers a chance to camp by the river. In the last few years Mohican has made great strides and upgraded bathroom facilities, hiking trails with trail maps and markers, and so on.

Mohican is also gorgeous with it's foliage anytime of the year and big Lyons falls typically a hit with families as the water is always flowing.

Car camping

Mohican has a wide array of first come first served car camping sites right on the river. It makes it difficult to grab a spot in the summer. It's very crowded but for good reason… it is a beautiful area with access to water, picnicking, and plenty of hiking trails. A wonderful place to visit and camp.

beautiful state park

lots of hiking trails and waterfalls. free hike-in camping available here too.

Unexpected Treat in Central Ohio

As part of a nearly 200-mile bikepacking ride, this was our last stop! We spent 2 nights in their "Class B" area down in the Mohican River Valley and loved it.

The oddly named “Class A” camping area offers everything from full-hook up camping slots for campers large and small, as well as just electric sites and 10 “walk-in” primitive sites, and cabins -- all of which are reservable. This area has all the bells and whistles of a modern campground with an environmental learning center, a nice outdoor pool, clean showers and bathrooms, an extensive playground and hiking and mountain biking trails right out the front door.

The “Class B” area offers 25 primitive sites on a first-come, first-served basis. It is almost 6 miles by road from the “A” services, but only a 2-mile flatish hike along the river trail. At these sites, there are only pit toilets and a water pump. Each site has a picnic table and a small fire ring. There is also a large group camping area just a few miles away from the primitive “Class B” area.

Tubing and canoeing are available within the park, but there are also several canoe outfitters in the area which provide rental / pick up services. The sheer number of these businesses makes me think that summer time can be crowded!!

Beautiful shaded trails meander all throughout the park and they boast some of the most challenging mountain biking in the mid-west, so read your trail maps. Hiking, equestrian and winter snowmobile trails also offer some great opportunities to get out and stretch your legs throughout the year. There is also a safe and convenient, bike lane / bike path into nearby Loudonville, which has a small grocery story and the usual fast-food restaurants.

Note: The only reason why this park didn't get a 5 star was due to their customer service. It was absolutely lousy, confusing, and the young folks working behind the counter acted as if they didn't want to be there and/or hadn't been trained. We almost left, but since we had cycled 42 miles to get there that day, we chose to stay and enjoyed our time in their Class B sites.
