Ohio has a lot of natural beauty and sometimes when you grow up someplace you kind of take that for granted. On a recent trip back to Ohio to see family I had the joy of spending some time with my sister, Paula, and her husband, Carl. One of the things that they love to do is visit parks and hike and of course I was excited to do that.
Mohican State Park is located at 116 State Route 3 in Loudonville, Ohio. The Mohican Lodge and Conference Center is located at 1098 County Road 3006 and is a beautiful facility.
We started out with a lovely lunch at the Mohican State Park Lodge which was not busy at all on the Monday that we visited. Paula and Carl have been there for Sunday brunch and report that it is always very crowded then so I suspect our timing for a quiet lunch was perfect at the beginning of the week instead of on a weekend.
After a really nice lunch we did a bit of hiking and got to spend some time in nature just enjoying the sights and sounds of the park.
Mohican State Park covers 1, 110 acres and is adjacent to 4, 525 acres of state forest. That is a lot of wonderfulness.
Some of the activities that visitors to the park can enjoy include boating, fishing, hunting, picnicking, swimming, hiking, bike trails as well equestrian trails, and even winter sports such as snowmobiling. Mohican State Park is the home to one of the oldest ultra marathons in the U.S., The Mohican Trail 100, and also hosted the first ever US Track and Field Ultra Marathon National Championship in 2005.
Visitors can stay in the many types of accommodations that the park provides. Reservations can be made for campsites, cabins, and shelters as well as accommodations in the lodge itself. There is a spot for just about any type of visitor.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day and I hope to visit again soon. I even got my sister to pose in a tree.

I went to Mohican Outdoor School! That experience was wonderful!! It’s a beautiful state park!
Mohican is definitely a gem–one of our favorite places to camp and hike. Thanks for highlighting it!
Looks like a beautiful park. I don’t think people know how beautiful Ohio is. Thanks for sharing!
Our BYF retreats (baptist Youth Fellowship) were held there every sprong- we had a blast. We also splashed our way through an annual canoe trip. My older son still camps with his buddies there. Gorgeous photos-thanks!
Sounds & looks like a lovely day! It’s hard to beat a picnic in the park!
Beautiful. A place I would definitely enjoy. I loved hiking in NC. I’m sure I would in OH too. 🙂
