RVers traveling on the I80/I90 Ohio Turnpike can enjoy overnight parking with hook-ups at eight of their service plazas. We stayed at the west bound Middle Ridge Service Plaza in Amherst, Ohio. Our “site 4” was wide enough for our Bus with all four slides out and our Jeep Grand Cherokee.There was a large grassy area in the rear for the dogs. This plaza had several re staurants to choose and we chose Panera Bread. This was a great option for us and we would use again when in the area.
