Shawnee State Park + Portsmouth Ohio


We met my in laws at Shawnee State Park for the Easter holiday and we went to see the John Rankin House. The view looking over the Ohio River was breathtaking but we didn’t stay too long as it was raining. We also saw the John P. Parker house while there. We drove up to Serpent Mound and had a picnic lunch while there on another day. And then, we spent a day in Portsmouth walking around, checking out the Spartans Stadium, the murals on the flood wall and we had a drink at Portsmouth Brewing Company.

We rented a cabin at the Shawnee State Park resort and it was a very nice place to stay. They say it is a full stocked kitchen but I would recommend bringing knives if you are a serious cook. We cooked in for most meals but we did eat at the lodge one night and it was very good. I’d highly recommend it if you’re staying at the park. We did a little hiking around the park and I have to say, I think it would much prettier in the spring.
