Celebrate The Holiday Season at Ohio State Park Lodges

They're offering breakfast with Santa, twinkly lights and much more

The Thanksgiving leftovers are gone and it’s time to shift into holiday mode with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).  Beginning Dec. 1, Great Ohio Lodges at Ohio’s state parks will be decked out with holiday cheer to help you celebrate family gatherings, business meetings, or festive getaways.

“There is a special kind of beauty at our Ohio State Park lodges during the holiday season,” said ODNR Director Mary Mertz.  “The lights, the snow, the overall warmth of a fire burning in the hearth, they can all inspire fond holiday memories of years past and encourage families to make new ones that will last a lifetime.”

From Burr Oak to Maumee Bay, the halls of the lodges will be decked with holiday décor, ready to welcome visitors who want to get away this season.  More than 50,000 lights and 44 fully decorated trees will be on display at the Shawnee State Park lodge.  A full-size nativity scene and an all-natural Noah’s Ark will add to the holiday décor at the lodge. Want to see which tree is the finest? Shawnee also features a best in show tree selected by the Ohio Association of Garden Clubs.
