Any open campgrounds between Columbus Ohio and Indianapolis

Hello! I will be picking up my new MH this coming week, I will be coming from Niagara Falls to Phoenix AZ, can anyone recommend an open campground between Columbus Ohio and Indianapolis that may be open? I think this might be a hard task as I know this area is still seeing snow!!! I do not want to stay at a pilot station on my first night if I can help it, any recommendations is welcomed! Thank You!

Most KOAs are open year round, However I don't know if there are any where you are wanting to stop.

There is a KOA in Dayton right off of I70, a few miles west of I75.

I would head further south sooner, taking I-71 south from Columbus, thru Cincinnati, Louisville, Nashville, etc. Better chance of finding good weather sooner. In Cincinnati, FMCA has a nice campground open year round.

If you're going to be in Columbus you could overnight at Cabela's. They have a dump station if you need. I believe Cardinal Center (on I-71, 30 miles N of Cbus) is open.

X2 on FMCA. Good place to stop if you are a member.
Looking at predicted weather this coming week. You may want to choose a route that is below I-40. I-20 would be my choice.

Hi Grandcanyon,
Consider getting south quickly. When you get to Cincinnati go south on I-71/75. At the split stay on I-75. In just a few miles (about 3 miles) past the split is Oak Creek CG. It is at exit 171. There is also a PFJ fueling station at the same exit. They are open year around. Easy in/out with pull through sites. 859-485-9131. This is the CG I stay at when in the area.

Back track a couple of miles and take I-71 South to warmer weather.

Campgrounds That May be Opened

Thanks for the information, as you all know my route may all change depending on the weather, so far it looks like snow on the ground but for Friday and Saturday of next week no snow predicted at this time. Again thanks for the information on KOA and Cabella's.
