Small Recreational Bay at Lake Erie Jul 04, 2011
Yet another interesting place to see around Toledo, OH is Maumee Bay State Park located at Oregon, OH, along the edge of the Lake Erie. This state park is a small and clean recreational area for children and even adults, as it offers many interesting activities for everyone.
The Bay is not very big, but it has a nice panoramic view of the Lake Erie with white sand along the shoreline. Kids can enjoy swimming in the lake, play and collect shells in the sand. There were numerous sharp shells on some parts along the Bay, so it is advisable to wear sandals just so you don't get spiked! The water was not crystal clear on the bay, but it is good enough for swimming and playing. There is a big water slide for kids and children for $10 fee with unlimited slides!
Adults can enjoy water sport activities such as kayak, canoe, Jet Ski, fishing boat, sail boat and banana boat ride. These are rented on hourly basis on a nearby rental place and rates weren't expensive compared to most tourist locations.
Other activities includes hiking, bicycling, fishing, golf and camping. The campground is located in the meadows and woods. The Mouse trail along the woods is little over 2 miles and it is a great way to see many birds and big trees!
There are some lodges and resorts available for rent inside the park for visitors wish to stay or they can bring their own RV and rent a spot. It is important to bring everything needed for the stay, as there are no nearby stores. Gas station, food and convenience stores can be found about 3-4 miles from the Bay area.
There are plenty of free parking on each section of the park where visitors can just park and relax on any of small lake/pond nearby. Many wooden picnic tables are available everywhere and there are sets of tables under big shelters as well.
This is place is definitely worth for day picnic or long stays.
