Maumee Bay State Park Should Be On Your Visit List
Maumee Bay State Park, located minutes from Toledo, Ohio, is the perfect summertime retreat for anyone with an RV. The most exciting part of the park is Lake Erie—Maumee has extensive beaches so that visitors can lounge, read, and cool down in the water. If you’re more interested in going out on the lake rather than staying next to it, you are in luck—Maumee also has a marina! Be sure to make reservations for your boat beforehand, and if you’re less experienced there are canoes and sailboats for rent on a smaller inland lake.
If you are travelling with children, Maumee offers a family package that is perfect for both parents and kids. If you purchase the plan, two children under twelve can eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner for free at the Maumee lodge the whole summer. There are also other benefits to the plan: kids can accumulate Fun Bucks, to redeem for different activities and treats, such as paddle boat rides, a s’mores making kit, snacks for the trail, and geocaching materials.
There are plenty of things for parents, too. If you are done with the lake for the day, there are many trails to explore, and a nature center to provide information about local animals and plants before you set off on your adventure. There are sports facilities, including tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts. There is even an eighteen-hole Scottish Links golf course from which players can see the resort’s meadows and forests. To cool down after playing, there are indoor and outdoor pools. With all these activities, Maumee Bay State Park is the perfect stop on your RV trip!
