Cardinal Center Campground, 616 OH-61, Marengo, Ohio is just North of Columbus at Exit 140 off I-71 (175 miles from our previous stop in Conneaut, OH). It’s another easy off/on campground in a country setting. $31/night with Senior discount. Long pull-thrus with large grassy areas between sites. Full-hookups, free WiFi, indoor heated pool, and a small store.

This large complex is also the home of  the Ohio State Trapshooters Association and all is surrounded by large farm fields.

The Farmstead Restaurant is also on the property and we had dinner there our first night.

As it is a small farming community there is not much to explore but we did enjoy the peace and serenity as there are only 3 other RV’s in this section of over 100 sites . The weather was in the 70’s with lots of sunshine.

If you travel this route (I-71) we would highly recommend this campground. There is a Pilot/Flying J Truckstop at the same exit as well as the Farmstead Restaurant,a  laundromat, and a car-wash.

Next stop on our Snowbird route will be just South of Indianapolis where we will be spending a week visiting with family. Then we will continue our trip South by picking up I-75 near Lexington Kentucky, then Tennessee, Georgia and on into Florida. We know that I-75 is a favorite route with many Snowbirds and we want to find some nice, reasonable, and fun stopovers.
