Wine Touring near Niagara falls in/around "Niagara on the Lake" is great!
The short ride right from the falls along a parkway is beautiful and the town of Niagara on the Lake is very charming, tourist friendly, artsy/fartsy. The large farms/wineries are fun to visit. Be careful driving, tastings are plentiful. Try Ice Wine. Very few wine regions in the world make it and this area is especially known for it. Have fun!

I have heard that the State Park in Hocking Hills is one of the best in the country. I have stayed in other campgrounds in the area but I would not reccomend any of them. Book early, the State Park is very popular.

If you like hiking you can fill 3 days in Hocking Hills easily. Very beutiful area.

If you find yourself in Cleveland, one of the unkonw jems (to me at least) is the USS Cod WW2 submarine. It is located just east of the rock and roll hall of fame and is the only one of its kind still in original condition that can be accessed by the public. (be prepared to go down ladders and such)

Happy camping!

And Niagara on the Lake has two of the finest haberdasheries that I have ever visited!

1. Halley's Haberdashery @ 57 Queen Street, Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, Canada

2. BeauChapeau Hat Shop @ 42 Queen Street, Niagara on the Lake, Ontario, Canada

No offense to those that like Hocking Hills, but seeing that the OP is from KY, as I am, if you've been to Mammoth Cave you will be disappointed. IMHO, Hocking Hils is very touristy and being there on the weekends would be on my short list of things NOT to do as it becomes insanely crowded.

We've been to Mammoth many times. Going again in May! We might even
go in a cave this time! Folks who think Mammoth cave NP is just a big
cave are missing a lot. We love hiking and Mammoth has MILES of trails.
Good place for casual bike riding too.

We will be in Hocking Hills Tue-Fri so we might not be as crowded as
you say but we're going!
We've camped lots of places. Some were crowded and touristy and many
were not. We'll take our chances. We'll be on the road nearly 3 weeks so
it's pretty hard not to be somewhere on a weekend or 2

In a year DW will retire and we can get in some R & R during off peak times.

Holland State Park fills up fast. If you are going there I would make reservations real soon. Dutch Treat Campground is another option is the State Park is full. As long as you are on that side of Michigan I would not miss a trip to Grand Haven. The State Park campground is just like Holland, on the beach. It also fills up fast. Campers Paradise is another choice in Grand Haven. Grand Rapids is a very nice city to visit There are lots and lots of bike trails all along the west side of Michigan and Grand Rapids area has more than their share. Pm me if you want some ideas.

How was your trip in the end??

I am interested on your thoughts on "The Pinery".
I just had an 11 day trip to the Pinery and I was amazed at the amount of Poison Ivy. I think the Provincial ban on herbicides has gone too far.
By-the-way I did get a bit of poison ivy rash on my legs.

Other then that the Pinery is still the Pinery I remember
