The single-most important item is; make reservations NOW - If it isn't already too late. You might have to camp miles from where you wish to visit otherwise. These very popular places become packed with people during fall when the leaves are changing.

If you pass through the Dayton area and enjoy aviation, The free National Museum of the Airforce is a must stop. There is plenty of parking and space for an RV with a toad. There are also Wright Brothers (birthplace of aviation) sites and displays in Dayton.

Agreed...mainly the Halloween Campouts during the October weekends are next to impossible to get in without reservations. Many state parks have walk-ins, but you probably will want to arrive mid-week during the Halloween events if you want a site in October.

We are in Indiana now and getting ready to head back to Florida next week.
We were with a group in Shipshewana -- went to Oliver mansion in Elkhart --excellent, Studebaker museum -- alongside mansion -- OK -- RV museum -- much better than anticipated -- Shipshewana flee market -- waste of time
Menno=Hof center -- history of Amish and Mennonites -- very good,
Auburn/Cord?dusenburg Museum -- great for car guys, not so good for wives.
Shops in Town of Shipshewana -- good
Ate at Essen House -- Amish style food -- excellent

Stayed at Shipshewana South RV Park === busy days of Flee Market -- not busy others -- not kids place -- no pools, swings --etc
Also have a good tour of the INTEGRA RV factory -- was arranged as a group- not sure of individual tours, they did a good job.

Hope yoiu find this helpful -- PM me on any one you might want details about.

Indiana and Ohio in fall

Nashville IN is absolutely great in the fall. We usually stay at "The Last Resort" RV campground which is close to the small town of Nashville. A small family operated campground. Go dine at the "Hobknob" Restaurant.
In Ohio Amish country, a great place to stay and check out all kinds of small towns. Really great campground is "The Evergreen RV Resort". Terrific campground, with an indoor pool and open yearound.Good luck!

To everyone who made recommendations on my original posting, thank you. Just got back. Visited the Hocking Hills area, did some gem-panning, stayed at the state park there. Who knew Ohio had caves, hills and beautiful natural areas? The US Air Force Museum in Dayton was amazing! Definitely would recommend.

Visited Nashville, Indiana, such a cute little town, ate at the Hob-Nob (as recommended), moved on to Elkhart-Shipshawana area, toured the Jayco factory, visited the RV Museum in Elkhart and ate at the Essenhaus and the Blue Gate (prefer the Essenhaus) and got to see some colors changing along the way. We did all this in nine days.

I truly appreciate everyone who took the time to make suggestions on my posting. IRV2 has become my go-to place when planning a trip, even before Trip Advisor or other travel sites. You are all Awesome! Thanks again.

sounds like you had a good trip....glad it all worked out for you. There's so many great places this country has to offer. It would take many lifetimes to even touch on a small portion of them. There are hidden gems everywhere.

We're heading to Florida from Michigan the day after Thanksgiving (after the wife gets back from Black Friday shopping). Hocking Hills was going to be our first stop where I was going to dewinterize. We were only going to spend the night at the state campground but if the weather isn't too cold we may stay a couple nights and wander around.
