Ash Cave, one of Ohio's most unique and toured geologic sights
Description - As part of the Appalachian Plateau, this area is one of Ohio's most rugged. Featuring beautiful waterfalls, impressive scenery and bordered by the Ohio River, outdoor enthusiasts will be captivated by the array and multitude of recreational opportunities. The Southeast Travel Region is home to more animal and plant species than any other travel region in the state.

Attractions - Home to the majority of Ohio's state parks and forests, Southeast Ohio also comprises Wayne National Forest. The travel region is synonymous with outdoor recreation. Native Americans dwelled here thousands of years ago and today we trample the area in awe. Come and be fascinated at Hocking Hills State Park, perhaps one of the most unique state parks in the Midwest. Lake Logan State Park offers great fishing across a quiet mirrored lake and the Perry State Forest and APV Area is whining with teens challenging their all-terrain vehicles. Salt Fork and Burr Oak state park lodges provide some of the most relaxing and scenic atmosphere in the region while Hopewell Culture National Historic Site enlists history buffs for another lesson in the richness and diversity of Ohio's public lands.

Recreation - Recreation opportunities in Ohio explore state and national lands where facilities provide users the enjoyment of hiking, camping, picnicking, mountain biking, horseback riding, viewing historical sites, rock climbing, scuba diving, wildlife watching, boating of various types, fishing, swimming, and an array of winter sports.

Climate - This state has four distinct seasons and a brilliant fall foliage display in it southern woods during mid October. Winter lasts from December through February with average temperatures near 25 degrees F. Low temperatures dip to single digits, but do not often drop below zero. Northern regions of the state receive average snowfall amounts of 55 inches, while the central and southern regions of the state receive lesser amounts with averages near 30 inches. This difference is caused by lake-affect moisture patterns.

Spring temperatures begin to warm the landscapes of Ohio by mid March and are in full swing by April. Temperatures range from 40 through 70 degrees F through the spring months. This season often brings the most rainfall, before the drying heat of summer. Summer can be extremely hot and humid in the interior of Ohio. Temperatures reach above 90 degrees F frequently through July and August. Cooler fall temperatures don't reach the region until mid to late September. This is a pleasant time to visit as the air is crisp with low humidity levels. Ohio's annual precipitation usually reaches slightly above 50 inches.
