Camping & Fun at Put-In-Bay

  • Jun 21, 2013 · 5:00 PM





















What: Camping and Fun @ Put-In-Bay
When: June 21-June 23

This event is as much about the fun as it is about the camping. Of course, as always, partying too loudly is not allowed at state parks, but Put-in-Bay is kind of a party Island in general. Be ready to spend a little money on going into town and having fun.

"There is no doubt that Put-in-Bay Ohio is one of the most unique places you will ever visit. The tiny two by four mile island is dotted with historic homes, the nation's third tallest monument, quaint restaurants and local pubs."

This is what I call Do-It-Yourself camping. The organizer will reserve a campsite and individual members can reserve their own sites nearby. Of course, we can go into town as a group, eat together, sit around the campfire together etc... but each individual is responsible for their own travel & campsite or finding someone to share a site with.

Save money by carpooling to the island and sharing campsites with other COA members.  We will have a planning meeting so that people can meet each other and talk about carpooling plans & sharing campsites.  

Reserve your campsite early... They might go fast! It looks like the only available sites currently available are non-electric.

Suggested Itinerary....
Travel on Friday & get to know each other at the campsites
Go out Saturday and have some fun.
Travel back home on Sunday

But honestly, DIY camping means that you can do whatever you want.

Adventure at your own risk.

    Other plans.
    My favorite summer fun place - but probably too late to get a lake-view site. Sorry to miss. Maybe you'll do it again?
