Tucked away in Southeast Ohio is the AEP Recreation lands, newly-named the Jesse Owens State Park.
At the current time it is free to Camp, here is how you get a free permit https://www.aep.com/environment/conservation/recland/permit.aspx
You can camp here up to 21 days free of charge. Permit that I obtained from a bait shop says that it is a lifetime free permit. Every 21 days you simply have to move to another one of their several campgrounds, therefore you could simply Boondock here for quite a long time. This is a great way to enjoy the RV life.
Free for service-connected and retired veterans. They also have an excellent free PTSD program if you know any veterans whom may benefit from it. If you’re interested in their programs just Google the Wilds in Cumberland Ohio. All contact information is on their website.
I stumbled upon this place while driving to a free boondocking location in Ohio. What a pleasant detour! I love seeing conservation in action. This is an excellent place to visit while enjoying the RV life or van dwelling in the recreation lands nearby.
On Interstate 77 South in West Virginia just passed Parkersburg there is a rest stop with an RV dump station free of charge.
While overnight parking is not available to enjoy the RV life while boondocking, this is the first dump station I’ve seen available at a rest stop. I thought my RV life friends may want to know this as well. Have a great day!
From my boondocking location in Ohio where I stayed last night. What? Not the kind of quickie you were thinking? You know I couldn’t resist since the video is just 2 minutes. Yeah that qualifies as a quickie, right?
This is our favorite swimming hole from my childhood. It is top secret because everyone would not be pleased with me if I gave away the location. However I just had to share its beauty with you.
This is an excellent day-use boondocking RV life location.
Back when I was in college everyone used to ask me about Ohio. Like, what’s in Ohio? Well, this is an example of what is in Ohio. My home state is full of beauty just about everywhere you turn, from the shores of Lake Erie to Old Man’s Cave, Hocking Hills, the Ohio River and countless other Scenic locations.
