Indian Meadow Service Area, OH Tpk

 indmea01

When Ohio remodeled some of the rest areas along the Turnpike, they included small overnight RV parking facilities at 8 locations, 4 east-bound and 4 west-bound. Indian Meadows is the west-bound plaza near the west end of the Turnpike. Across the highway is the Tiffin River Service Plaza which has a similar facility.

This is it - it's a paved parking area with parking spots marked off 5 to each side of the center lane. You'll see signs for RV Parking just as you enter the rest area. It's well removed from the truck parking area and one hears only an occasional braking truck coming by.

Date of visit: Sep 2011

Each of the ten sites has an electric utility post with 15/30/50 amp outlets. Sites have a slight tilt to them; our levelers were able to handle it. It's a short walk over to the visitor center, where can find a food court, convenience store and free hot showers in very clean private bathrooms.

One uses a simple self-pay station: put in the exact amount of your stay ($20) and get a receipt. Place the receipt on the dash of your vehicle where it can be seen.

If needed, potable water is available as is an RV dump station. All in all, it's not particularly scenic, but it sure is convenient for an overnight stop.
