COLUMBUS, Ohio — There’s never been a better time to plan your Ohio outdoor getaway than now. According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), all Ohio State Park lodges will reopen on June 5. Additionally, many deluxe state park cabins will open on June 1.

“Ohio’s modern but cozy lodge and conference centers offer visitors a relaxing retreat from daily life, surrounded by woods and lake views,” said ODNR Director Mary Mertz. “After a day of hiking, fishing, boating or swimming, guests can spend their nights in safe, clean and comfortably appointed guest rooms and suites.”

Reservations are now being accepted for overnight stays, meetings and weddings at the lodge and conference centers located at Burr Oak, Deer Creek, Hueston, Maumee Bay, Mohican, Punderson, Salt Fork and Shawnee state parks.

Deluxe cabins, golf courses, and marinas at these locations began welcoming guests earlier this month.

“Our staff has been working diligently to ensure that guests return to a safe and sanitized environment following the CDC safety guidelines,” said Tom Arvan, Director of State Park Lodges for operator US Hotels. “Our goal is for our guests to feel comfortable as they enjoy the fun activities and relax in the natural beauty of the lodges and all the state parks have to offer this summer.”

The lodge and cottages at Geneva State Park will also reopen on June 5. Guests may contact the lodge at www.thelodgeatgeneva.com or call 866-806-8066 to make lodge room or cottage reservations.
