Highest Point in Ohio
Elevation: 1,549 feet
Location: Campbell Hill
Visited: November 2021
In terms of highest points in the United States, Campbell Hill is very underwhelming. If you’re looking for a wow factor, oh wow will you be disappointed. There are no sweeping views of the mountains or panoramic overlooks of the surrounding area. The highest point is located on a relatively small hill, which is tucked away behind a community college.
