Traveling Project Manager looking in Ohio

I am a project manager for a drywall/painting contractor and need to find a place to set up for months at a time and i am currently looking in central Ohio.
I have a 1998 National Class A so some of the campgrounds won't let me in because of vintage age.

I really do not need all the amenities associated with campgrounds just a place to hook up.

Does anyone have suggestions on finding a place?

Just talked to people, construction workers that have.

You really shouldn't have an issue with a 1998 unless you want to stay at a higher price park that can get 'picky'.

Try looking at this site for cities where you want to be:

Give a little more info & we can help out. What type of amenities do you need? What do you mean by "just a place to hook up."? By hook up, do you need full hook ups, w/e only, electric only? Our state parks will take any RV & have varying types of hookups.

thank you for the replies.

I would prefer full hook ups
I need monthly rate since I will be at job for up to a year at a time.
I do not care about puttputt, pool, etc really just a spot for the RV.


thanks

Check on Craigs List or Market Place for a private owned spot. Some farms have RV spots for seasonal harvest workers that might work for you.

Sorry about the state parks mention. I forgot the max stay is 14 days then you have to move.

X2 on Riverbend. $500/mo is quite reasonable for a fhu monthly rate around here. For example Berkshire Lake in Galena wants $850/mo, Hickory Grove in Marion almost the same. There's Tree Haven in Westerville - their mo rates are also low but electric is metered so you'd have to add on for that. You could check on Rustic Knolls in Mt. Vernon: $650/mo + metered electric. There's also Lancaster CG in Lancaster : $560/mo.

Rustic knolls has a 10 year ruling and they quoted about $750 month ??? Ayear ago.
Maybe they have some new sites now.

A very nice park with great owners.
