Rallies at Lazy River in Pioneer Ohio

Greetings, I am in the process of purchasing Lazy River Campground in Pioneer, ohio ..

By doing some internet searches, I discovered that your group held several rallies at this campground in the 1970’s.

I am gathering the history of the campground and looking for pictures or anything of interest. This campground was first called Ranger Campground in 1972. The rallies were hosted by Bill and Lou Herdter per your history page. Anything you can help with would be appreciated. Ken Wortkoetter 1530 E High St Bryan , Phone: 419-553-7030 Email:

Here is what I know, and it ain't much.

July 13-15, 1976 National Summer Rally held at Lazy River Campground, Pioneer, Ohio. The Ohio Barth Buckeyes were hosts. About 95 coaches attended. But no official count is available.

At this time, "I believe", your Campground was known as Lazy River.

Unfortunately, The Barth Rangers no longer have a web presence. The full text of their history from that page about your Campground is what I have listed above. I searched, but did not find any pictures from back then.

If you can find a cached page, that information was listed on ""

The Barth Rangers and the Website are 2 different entities. Good luck with your search, if anyone knows anything more, please add to this thread.

Barth Rangers President is
