RV Places to Stay by Lake Erie

Here, we offer more than a dozen destinations to park your home away from home and soak-in Lake Erie's serene atmosphere.

Sure, it’s got spacious and private sites, but there’s also miles of flat paved trails to explore. ohioodnr.gov

Geneva State Park  |  Geneva-on-the-Lake
Bike trails connect the park to the charming resort town, where you’ll find all kinds of carnival-like entertainment and fare, like cotton candy twice the size of your head at Pucker Up Candy Shoppe. ohioodnr.gov
