Club JACK, within an hour of Camp HiYo!, is in the Historic Higbee Building in downtown Cleveland. It’s 96,000 square feet of gaming, thousands of slots, poker and game tables. If you want live horse racing, there’s Club JACK Thistledown, also inside an hour in Randall, Ohio, southeast of Cleveland. Obviously, the dining is sumptuous (lots) at both locations, along with cocktails and a large buffet.
Come watch a horse race at JACK Thistledown Racino just 50 miles away from Camp HiYo! in beautiful Cleveland, OH.

You have to experience it, as long as you’re just a buggy ride in about any direction from Ohio’s Amish Country. See why four million visit it every year. Don’t miss the “Amish Sistine Chapel.” The Amish and the many people with Mennonite heritage are the greatest cooks and carpenters and some of the nicest people in the world.

There are craft shops, quilting, bakeries and 80 hardwood furniture stores.
That’s where you are at Camp HiYo! A stone’s throw from Ohio’s fine golf courses and
magnificent parks. Plenty of boutique shops with handmade crafts, fashion and art. Farmers markets are a regular thing at the center of festivals, live events and a tour of the history of Ohio in architecture. Explore! Let us know what you find.
About 20 minutes east, just south of beautiful Chippewa Lake is the Northern Ohio Railway Museum, a terrific attraction on two miles of track belonging to the historic Cleveland Southwestern Railway. But, on the way, stop at the Lodi Railway Museum in Lodi, Ohio, which was the center of the logging industry, made possible by the powerful and unusual locomotives invented here. See the excitement of the old rail brought to life and get a sense of history only the railroad lover knows.
Take a great family side trip. See nature displays, a nature store, an observatory room where you can watch birds and other animals. Several miles of hiking trails on the property include some that allow dog-walking. There is no admission fee, and several public programs are available monthly.
