For over five decades, the Ohio State Park Lodges have been “at your service,” providing a place where relaxation is an educational experience. Whether you’re here attending an important corporate meeting or reconnecting with family, each lodge delivers an abundance of group activities that will keep everybody busy. Take a look at some of the opportunities waiting for you and begin planning your meeting or event at one of our Ohio State Park Lodges and Conference Centers.
Many of our lodge properties feature an onsite championship golf course. This is a great opportunity to take a group of business associates or friends out on the green for an afternoon of great golf. Each course is designed to deliver a challenge for the skilled golfer while still providing an enjoyable experience for the novice.
