Disappointing

Campsites are super close to each other, people arrived late and were extremely loud trying to park their campers and fifth wheels, someone decided to turn their generator on at 4:30am. Possibly just a bad weekend to end up here-didn’t end up staying for our whole reservation.

A Hidden Gem

This is a small campground no question! That being said we had one of our best camping experiences. Our site was right along the Maumee River and our view was just breathtaking. We watching the seagulls play and catch food while great blue herons skimmed that water and fisherman were out fly fishing. It was just a very peaceful setting.

There are lots of bike trails as the towpath trail goes through the park and it even leads into the little town of Grand Rapids. A quaint town with lots of antiques store and boutique with a brewery and pizza shop. ( the ice shop was closed for the season 🙁)

The only odd thing was your potable water and dump station were located at the Marina about a 1/4 mile down the road. Not a huge deal but a little inconvenient.

The Verizon cell service was great as well.

We will definitely go back to this park.

Spacious sites with biking and walking trails

We love camping here.  Every site is spacious and most have a full natural barrier that separates sites.  There are some full hookups, but all have electric.   Bring your bikes and walking shoes.  The paved biking and walking trails are well cared for.  There is also a beach at the state park. The only thing we dislike is the wait for the dump station.  Be ready to wait on Sundays if that is your check out day.

Beautiful, woody, peaceful perfection!!!

Maumee Bay State Park. Ohio. Let me state: Awesome park Full hook ups, 50,30,20. Sewer. Water. Handicap sites too!!! Dump station, with rinse down hose if needed. Large sites, private by trees. Gives each on your own yard. All Back of sites are fields. No one behind.
Quiet. Beautiful.
Lodge on site, cabins too Store, pool at lodge, game room at lodge. Bathrooms, showers houses. Clean and kept up. Each area has one.
Roads are set up with a circle at the end. Drive down them loop around then drive out. Angled driveways, easy to get trailer in. Or back in A and C class easy in and out too. Lakes, beach, canoe, kayak, bikes, hiking, boardwalk, wild life preserve, birders Haven, a scenic hill to climb.
More pictures to come.
They also have Hosts that stay here, and get free camping for helping parks out. Quiet times are observed. Perfection!!!! Wish all campgrounds had this layout.

Love everything this park has to offer

Campground was full this weekend with perfect weather. I will say every time we have camped here it’s always a quiet park. They only thing I dislike is the line at the dump station when leaving blocks the whole road and takes forever.

The trails are really nice and the boardwalk trail over by the lodge is my favorite. The beach area is nice and clean… to cold this trip to swim. Lots of wildlife at this park. We saw deer, raccoons, muskrat, lots of bird species and several snakes.

The camp store was closed due to COVID as was the nature center.

Beautiful but too cramped for our taste

Beautiful area. Very clean. Didn’t need laundry facilities but at least they have them. Very easy to park our dualy truck and 43’ Momentum 5th wheel in spot B-033. B loop was great for pull through spots. Super cute play grounds all around, one even 10 feet from our site. Friendly campers around however the site were a little close to each for our taste. Lots of tree shade around which made it nice to go for walks in the sun. Would return for sure.

Beautiful View

We have a Xtra large 5th wheel and dualy truck. It can be tough to find comfortable campgrounds. My husband parked the 5th wheel fairly easily. Clean and simple campground. Super cute little playground for the kids very close. Right on the water! A little buggy but that’s to be expected on the river!

Love this place

A great campground in Ohio. So clean and so many things to do. Campsites are close together but they do honor quiet hours. Great trail around the lake and a fun and challenging disc golf course.

Wonderful campground on Lake Erie

Nice campground on Lake Erie! Very private with trees surrounding most of the sites.Trails, board walk, nice beach, hotel with restaurant and pool.

Favorite Waterfront Camping in Ohio

We love camping at South Bass. It's the perfect weekend getaway. The campground is about 1.5 miles from the "party" side of the island, which makes staying on PIB a much quieter experience. Stayed at #132 and #135, and we're headed back later this month. Can't beat the view and plenty of space. Slight slant on 135, but we positioned our tent the right way so it wasn't a problem. Occasionally heard some people coming in late at night being at the front of the park, but overall it was a great experience.
