Streetsboro Cleveland KOA Campground and RV Park

Updated: Jan 27

Come walk with us if you’re looking for a great place to stay while exploring Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the greater Cleveland area. We’ll first share all the activities for kids at this campground and later we’ll talk about what you can find at your campsite. Read the whole post as we share all the details about Streetsboro KOA and some things you may not know about the surrounding area. You’ll also get a taste of Cuyahoga National Park and a waterfall view you don’t want to miss. Let’s Get Started! To watch the video version of this blog with more great views of the Streetsboro KOA watch our YouTube video.

Your brood will enjoy all the activities that are setup especially for them. There are two play areas on the property. The back playground has swings, a climbing tower, and tetherball. We noticed this area was quieter and many campers may never know these swings are back here. Up by the ponds is a bigger playground. Here you will find basketball and a huge climbing fortress with multiple slides, sandbox, swings and everything a playground should have. But there’s more. This KOA has horseshoe pits, a big outdoor chess board, gem mining and an indoor arcade. The arcade includes video games, pinball, ping pong, pool, and air hockey. The swimming pool is located in a nice sunny spot across from the campground store and near the upper playground. The pool area has a large concrete patio with comfortable chairs and umbrellas for swimmers and sun worshipers. There are three ponds. Two are designated for fishing and are large enough to have bass. The water really adds to the atmosphere of the park and is great for walks and enjoying the property. Throughout the season this KOA will have events that add to your stay including holidays and Halloween weekends in the Fall.

Now that we know what the little ones will enjoy, let’s talk through the amenities you can expect at the Streetsboro Cleveland KOA. Later we will discuss what the campsites have to offer.

At the Streetsboro/Cleveland KOA you will find all you need to get stuff done. On-site you will find propane, firewood, and ice available for sale. The campground store is supplied with the normal fare of camping supplies, drinks, snacks, gifts, and toiletries. They even sell home made fudge. We were really surprised to see full private bathrooms on site. With separate rooms including a toilet, sink, and shower, we don’t see this very often. But, it may be an Ohio thing because we did see this at Campbell Cove Campground in Hocking Hills. If you are thinking about Hocking Hills here is a great post to get you started: 10 Facts About Hocking Hills State Park. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained. You will also find a coin laundry with good appliances at the campground store. WiFi Internet is also available throughout the park.

Let’s touch on Location real quick and price and later we’ll discuss what the Streetsboro KOA has for dogs.

Where to Camp When Visiting Cuyahoga Valley National Park?

At less than 10 miles from Cuyahoga Valley National Park and about 30 miles from downtown Cleveland this KOA is in a great location for big city fun and some of the best hiking and biking in the Great Lakes Region. But it’s also easy to get to the campground off the Ohio Turnpike because it is only 3 miles from exit 187. This is a KOA Holiday and the pricing is what you would expect. We found rv sites generally run between $60-$90 per night. Tent sites run about $50 per night. We did notice a separate area for tents. . Cottages are also available in the $100-$200 range. Check their site for all the different options they have available.

The campground has a lot of diversity. The front of the park is well landscaped with white fencing bordering the main driveway. In the middle of the park are the fishing ponds store, pool, playground and picnic shelter pavilions. Towards the back of the property you will find wetlands full of birds and just a beautiful habitat. Off the main campground road you can head up to the tent sites or head back into the woods to more remote sites and cabins that are placed around another wetland area that holds enough water sometimes to be a retaining pond. The sites are a little close together but the campground has a lot going for it and the different sections of the park add to its overall value as a campground and place for rest, relaxation, and fun activities.

Every campground review needs a dad joke! Since we’re at Cuyahoga Valley we’ll throw in a biking reference: Why didn’t the bike want to go camping? It was two tired. All right back to the KOA.

So, what can you find at your campsite?

Most of the RV sites are full hookup with water, sewer, and electric with 20 amp, 30 amp, and 50 amp outlets. The sites are generally stone pads with grass. Picnic tables and firepits are located at each site as well. There are a few sites in the back that are water and electric only. But check the campground map on their website to learn more. We also found that the campsites are generally level and there are many large trees to provide great shade and shelter from the wind.

Let’s pause on the campground and share what is close to the Streetsboro/Cleveland KOA and later we’ll get into what there is for dogs.

But Can You Stay Overnight in Cuyahoga Valley National Park?

No, you can’t. There is no camping available or allowed in Cuyahoga Valley. So Streetsboro/Cleveland KOA is your best choice for camping while visiting the national park. Cuyahoga Valley is a great experience. We enjoyed biking the canal trail and hiking the ledges area of Cuyahoga Valley. There are not many national parks that have such great biking. The towpath trail and other biking integrated inside and outside the park make this a cyclist destination. Hikers will enjoy all there is to offer too. We enjoyed hiking the Brandywine Gorge Loop trail that takes about 1-2 hours. The ledges is also a popular hiking spot with many rock formations to explore. You should plan about 1-2 hours to hike this area too.

What are you looking forward to while in the Cuyahoga/Cleveland area? Let us know in the comments.

Streetsboro/Cleveland KOA is Dog Friendly

We’ll come back to other nearby amenities of the area but did you know the Streetsboro KOA has two Kamp K9s on site. One dog park is located by the pool and the other is by the back playground. Both areas provide off leash fun for you and your pets. Dog bags are also available in a few other places around the park. Walks are enjoyable around the campground. We’ve found walking through the campground with dogs provides a lot of scenery for you and your pet to enjoy. You can get away from the campsites by walking around the ponds and going to the park entrance.

Have you checked out what is in nearby Hudson and Streetsboro yet?

Streetsboro Cleveland KOA is conveniently between these two towns. Here you will find all the major retailers including WalMart, Target, Harbor Freight, Lowe’s and Home Depot. All these stores are convenient when you need something while traveling. Throughout the area boutique shops and a number of restaurants with both national brands and local fare. We found a great traditional Italian Restaurant named D’angelo’s for our son’s birthday just north in Twinsburg Ohio.

But, Cleveland has more to discover. Less than 30 miles away there are many top attractions. Most would say the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is at the top of tourist’s lists. But you can also visit the museum of art, Cleveland Zoo, USS Cod Submarine Memorial, and West Side Market. But for people that are into Christmas movies you can also see the house from A Christmas Story and the accompanying official museum for the movie.

Have you wondered like us Why is Cuyahoga Valley a National Park? The Valley was created by an Act of Congress and signed by President Gerald R Ford who buckeye fans would like to know is from Michigan, on December 27 1974. The main purpose was to preserve and maintain the 32,000 acres along the 22 miles of the Cuyahoga River. Here in this location is a wealth of history as well as scenic views and natural habitat for wildlife. The other value is that it provides a place for the local communities to have a large area for recreation and relaxation.

We mentioned Brandywine Gorge Loop Earlier. Here is the reason you want to hike this trail. The Brandywine Waterfall is the largest waterfall in the park with it’s grand width and over 60 feet tall descent.
