Located on Ohio's northeastern shoreline, Geneva State Park reflects the character and charisma of Lake Erie. The shimmering expanse of the lake lures vacationers who enjoy fishing and boating. Swimmers rejoice in the beautiful sand beach while nature enthusiasts retreat to the park's freshwater marshes and estuaries associated with the lake. COLUMBUS, OH – Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel holidays of the year. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) invites holiday travelers and others to reserve stays and dine at one of Ohio’s relaxing state park resort lodges.
 
Are We There Yet?

With nine luxurious Ohio State Park resort lodges statewide, travelers are never far from an affordable, scenic night’s stay.  Some lodges are offering special holiday discount rates. Do yourself a favor and trade the cramped foldout couch at the relatives’ residence for a private bed and bath with a gorgeous state park outside the door.
 
“Start a new tradition this Thanksgiving by reserving a room at an Ohio state park resort lodge,” said Dan West, chief of the ODNR Ohio State Parks. “The time you and your family spend together in our modern facilities will help increase your enjoyment of the holiday and provide lasting memories.”
