The State of Ohio: 12,000 Years in the Making...

For nearly 12,000 years, certain groups of humans have called one specific place on Earth home.  From the prehistoric age of hunters and gatherers to the dawn of the 21st century, this place has been preserved and impacted by our presence.

This place is in the distant, exotic land of...Ohio.

To experience history and the natural world, you don't have to venture too far outside your own backyard.  Just outside the urban areas of Cleveland and Akron is Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It might just be the perfect spot for your next RV trip.  And it just happens to be a short distance from Dave Arbogast RV Depot.

Cuyahoga Valley has experienced more human impact than most national parks, which is evident when you see the many man-made roads running throughout the park.  Up until around 300 years ago, the Cuyahoga River area was populated by American Indians.

Everett Road Covered Bridge, which is the only remaining covered bridge in Summit County, and the 60 foot tall Brandywine Falls are two popular tourist attractions.

Jaite Mill is the remnants of an industrial town whose paper mill was in operation from 1905 to 1984, and today it is part of the National Register of Historic Places.

There are plenty of campgrounds located near the park, so go experience the rich history of Ohio today!  Check out the National Park Service website for more information, and for more travel tips and a look at our inventory of new and used RVs.
