Caesar Creek State Park and the Pioneer Village are popular regional destinations for camping, boating and swimming trips.
The town offers an entertaining summer concert series at Bicentennial Park. For the more adventurous who want to explore, Waynesville has been called the most haunted town in Ohio complete with ghost sightings and ghost stories.
In 1999 Waynesville was named one of the most walkable cities by Walking Magazine with lovely trails through town and the nearby state park. But, it’s perhaps best known as host to the annual Sauerkraut Festival, held the second weekend in October. Christmas in the Village is an annual event when you can step back into time with luminaries, carriage rides, costumed characters and more. The annual fall Ohio Renaissance Festival is held in nearby Harveysburg.
