Ohio state parks offer military discounts

Ohio parks upgrades

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio is offering a 10 percent discount to active or veteran members of the U.S. military for camping, getaway rentals, cottages and lodge rooms at the state’s nine state parks.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources began offering the discount last week.

Department Director James Zehringer also says a 20 percent military discount off camping, getaway rentals, cottages and lodge rooms will be offered this fall in honor of Veterans Day. That discount for active or veteran members of the military will be offered from Oct. 31 through Nov. 16.

Military discounts may only be used for a single campsite, getaway rental unit, cottage or lodge room per visit and must belong to the cardholder using the facility. Military identification must be presented at the time of arrival or check-in.
