Check out the places to ride section at dirtbiking.com. There is a place near Zanesville called Perry county state forest that has camping and riding. I have never been there but I have heard that it is awsome. I plan to go in early August.
Wayne National Forest towards Nelsonville is a great place to ride, I believe they also offer camping. Most of the trail is fairly twisty, up and down hardpack. Nice banked turns but watch out for the quads :scream:
I've heard that Elson St. is a good place to ride, though I havn't been there yet. It is in Waynesburg, Oh. At the intersection of Rts. 43 and 44, take Elson St. 1/2 mile until it dead ends. Contact names: Sam 495-7139 or Kevin 877-2156. I found out about it here on DRN, so you may want to search the threads.
here is a place called Bear Creek which is south of Cleveland. I have never been there but it sounds good and im pretty sure they have camping and fishing too... go to this link and look at the third place down...
I know of a farmer property in or near Canton/Minerva around US 30, he has 230 acres, chrages $10, has camping. its decent place. I'll dig up the direction for it and post it, I have not been there this year. Hillsville ( near PA border off of 224 ) has been shut down so I am down to 3 places to ride Wellsville, Bear Creek and this place. I trying to get into racing since it look s like the only other way to get time on 2 wheels.
