I am from ohio and I have been to a couple of the state parks around nw ohio. East Harbor 4th of july lots of people and kids all seeming to have a good time. Went there to pick my son up. Really beautiful area. Van buren state park always really nice this time of year went fishing there last weekend did not catch much but it was loads of fun. Indian Lake always a great place to have fun went there about two weeks ago and it was pleasant. Ok guys ohio does have some nice parks and things to do so lets hear your guys opinion.
