This is No. 26 on the Record-Courier's list of 30 Things To Do in Portage County.
Looking to get away for a weekend or two? On the banks of West Branch State Park's 2,650-acre lake sits an almost 200-site campground complete with any and all amenities you could look for. Pull up your camper or pitch a tent, then start a fire in the pit, head to the beach for a swim or take a boat out onto the calm waters.
There’s 5,379 acres of woodlands and meadows to explore inside the park, including a marina, beach, 12 miles of mountain bike trails, two disc golf courses and part of Ohio’s Buckeye Trail. The lake’s many inlets and coves make it a popular for fishing and there’s horseback riding trails nearby. Don’t worry about keeping clean: the campground also features heated showers and laundry facilities.
Address: 5415-5627 Esworthy Road, Ravenna. Reservation can be made online.
