Where are the best places in Ohio for stargazing?
The best places to see stars in Ohio are generally in the national and state parks as they generally have more open areas away from light pollution. There are two Dark Sky Parks in Ohio that are the best locations by far to enjoy the stars. Here are some of the best places in Ohio for stargazing, including the two Dark Sky Parks:
- Observatory Park, Montville, OH: As a designated Dark Sky Park in Ohio this is perhaps the best place in the state for stargazing. With so little artificial light you can really enjoy the full effect of the Ohio night sky.
- Fry Family Park, Magnolia, OH: As the second Dark Sky Park in Ohio, the Fry Family Park is another amazing place to see the stars. This 360-acre park has wide open areas of grassland-covered rolling hills that make it easy to see a big beautiful star-filled sky.
- Cuyahoga Valley National Park: This beautiful area along the Cuyahoga River between Cleveland and Akron is a prime area for stargazing. Can you imagine standing by Brandywine Falls as the stars come to life? It is simply divine.
- Stonelick State Park, Pleasant Plain, OH: A thousand-plus acres of open land and a big bright sky filled with stars await you at Stonelick. They even have a stargazers group you can join that meets at the beach parking lot to enjoy the night sky in Ohio.
