We are planning an escape from frozen Canada via I 75 out of Detroit area on FEb 14th. Destination New Orleans.

I would like to drive fully into warmer weather but 500 miles the first day is about our limit.

This puts us in the DAyton Cincinnati region...need to know if campsites are open that time of year and/or what about truck stopping.

Second day should put us into Ky - Tn border area where we can search out good spots not too far off #75.

First time winter long haulers' needing help.

Can't speak to you about Ohio campgrounds being open this time of year. I live in the I-75 corridor and know of none in the Dayton area.
In Tennessee, I recommend Fox Inn Campground just off I-75 at exit 122. Good pull throughs, full or partial hook ups and propane available. Restaurants and many fuel stops available. 17 miles North of Knoxville, easy on and off.

Check the Ky, Horse park off I-75 just north of lexington, Ky. I think park is open, but got to fill water tank on way in no water at sites that time of year.

Hello Gordon I to use that route often winter and summer. I know of no campgrounds open in that area at that time of year, at least I've never found any. My first stop is usually the flying J at Walton Ky. There are several CG's in that area that are open year round.

Try googling for "Ohio Truck stops" and/or "WalMart store locator". There's lotsa places around Dayton for a quick overnite snooze.

Snowbirds. "Just too far to drive in one day?" "Along-The-I75" (Surprise!) there IS a campground in Ohio that is open mid-winter for an enroute rest. That campground is Twin Lakes Park".
This campground is just past Bluffton Ohio, right on the side of I-75. This was taken from their web page in Ohio campgrounds listed on Google. Bluffton is some 85 miles north of Dayton.

You may want to try this site listing Ohio campgrounds. The site is searchable by region and the hits indicate when the campgrounds are open.
Have a great trip.

Most Ohio State Park campgrounds are open year round, there are several on your way.
