About Us

140x140Big Arb's Campground is a beautiful 75-acre camping facility. It is located about five minutes east of Minerva, Ohio one mile north of route 30 just off Rochester Road. Forty acres are wooded with hiking trails. One may see deer, wild turkeys and other wildlife. On the grounds are a heated swimming pool, and two ponds. We also have a 40x120 ft. pavilion that has clean hot showers, a store with a snack bar and a shelter area that has seating for over 180 people. The shelter also has a variety of electronic games, and a pool table. The campground is comprised of many campsites. Water, sewer and electric are available at all campsites. Some campsites have a choice of 20/30/50 amp electric service. A dump station is available for those sites that do not have a sewer hook-up.
