Cash only ($20) at self-pay ticket machine. Located at westbound mile marker 197. Back-in only. Convenient for overnight stay. Each site has room to extend slide outs and to park towed vehicle. Some toll road traffic noise, but located away from truck parking. We slept well, even woke up late the next morning. We would stay here again when traveling the toll road. We camped at Ohio Turnpike Rest Stop-Portage in a Motorhome.

It was raining and there was a HUGE wreck on the Turnpike after the July 4th holiday. We waited in traffic over an hour and only went 1 mile! When this turnpike exit came up, we took it. The trucker showers were free. There were several choices of places to eat, plus a Starbuck's in the morning! It was some of the best camping at a rest stop we've ever done! The sites are set away from the big rigs, so not as noisy as the usual parking lot boondocking. The power terminals made it easy to have lights and not drain battery power. All in all, it was way more comfy to sit back and just watch the traffic jam with a beer in our hands instead of suffering it out. We camped at Ohio Turnpike Rest Stop-Portage in a Travel Trailer.

Designated RV sites are not pull-throughs so we had to unhook our car, but they are wide enough for the slides to be out and the car to be parked along-side. Very handy if you are on the turnpike. Pay cash in a box and get a ticket for the window. Good 50 amp service. Free dump-station at the exit of the RV area. Short walk to the rest area facilities with several restaurant choices, Starbucks, gift shop and restrooms. Traffic noise did not bother us. There were several other rigs there with us. WiFi from the plaza was available for a fee. You may stay in the regular parking lot for free with no hookups. We camped at Ohio Turnpike Rest Stop-Portage in a Motorhome.

Convenience of this facility is unexcelled. We spent the night and drove right over to the diesel truck pumps. This is a service provided by Ohio and has 12-15 sites with 15 amp service and water. We easily backed our 42' motorhome into the spot and parked the car next to it with plenty of room to spare. I cannot speak of the rest stop restaurant or bathrooms. Payment is made into a box upon which a parking pass is given. Close to the highway and trucks entering the fuel and rest area, but we slept well.No other RVs were present.
