This NP is different from the usual as it covers a long narrow area with towns and villages all within the boundary. We found it difficult to find the best way to see it because of this, however the parts we did visit were really...More

Yes. U need to get a permit form the rangers office. One word of warning- Cuyahoga valley is infested with ticks!!! be very careful where you decide to camp and make sure you talk to the rangers first.
