Maumee Bay State Park RV & Campground Guide

Maumee Bay State Park

is located in northern Ohio in Oregon. It is just 11 miles east of the city of Toledo and covers an area measuring 1,336 acres. Here, you’ll find resort lodges and cottages for visitors, as well as campgrounds, hiking trails, sand beaches, a 57-acre inland lake, and an 18-hole golf course. The state park is a tribute to Lake Erie, one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the world, which it overlooks. The wetlands of the Maumee Bay area are also home to numerous species of wildlife, including the fox snake, northern water snake, painted turtle, chorus frog, green frog, spotted salamander, raccoon, muskrat, dragonfly, caddis fly, and water striders.

The region has a moderate climate, with comfortably warm summers and snowfall in winter. During the warmer months, visitors can expect daytime highs of 83°F, followed by lows of just 33°F during the colder months. The park is open year-round, however, and if you’re planning a trip to this region, you’ll want to keep reading to learn information regarding camping, activities, how to get here, and more.
