Waterside camping near Cincinnati guide

Overview

The city noise of Cincinnati quickly fades when you're exploring lakes, caverns, and the mighty Ohio River. It doesn't matter whether you're sticking to Ohio or venturing into Kentucky (just a hop across the water). There's a trove of state parks and campgrounds to discover. At Winton Woods Campground, you can curl up in a sleeping bag under pine trees on the shores of Winton Woods Lake. This forested spot is a short drive from Kings Island Amusement Park—a big bonus for you campers with kids. Another local favorite is Steamboat Bend. Nestled on the Ohio River, it offers RV and tent camping with picnic tables and fire rings. If you want to stay active outdoors, camp at East Fork State Park—it's one of Ohio's biggest parks. Boating, riding mountain bike trails, and hiking rugged hills are just a few ways to play. You can also check out Caeser Creek State Park, located just past Lebanon. The big campground gives you easy access to the Little Miami Scenic Trail. If you don't mind ditching the tent, make camp at Indian Springs Campground. The RV-only camping area is perched on a wild lake. Spend the day fishing, canoeing, or cruising around on a paddleboat. Want to camp with the comforts of home? Bring your big rig to one of the RV parks around Cincinnati featuring Wi-Fi, full hookups and other extras. Looking to shake things up? Cabins, farm homes, glamper tents, and horse ranches offer a unique camping experience.
