The Great Outdoors

Those looking to immerse themselves in nature while remaining close to the campground can visit the nearby Maumee State Forest in Swanton. With a few trails explore, this relatively undeveloped forest offers visitors a real sense of the natural variety of Ohio. You’ll walk through fields and forests, and you’ll get to see wildflowers and maybe even some wildlife. If you want to cover more ground, you can get your hands on an ATV and head out on the seven miles of ATV trails that cut through the forest.Those looking for something a little unique can head to Missionary Island Wildlife Area in Waterville. In the middle of the Maumee River, the only way to get to the island is by boat, ideally a canoe or kayak. You can then dock your boat along the sandy shores of the island and go exploring. Missionary Island is known for having a very diverse bird population, with raptors and other rare birds spotted among the trees.Gain a deeper understanding of the Great Lakes by spending some time at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area in Oak Harbor. On the banks of Lake Erie, Magee Marsh Wildlife Area not only works to protect and showcase the rich wildlife variety of the region but also functions as controlled hunting and fishing grounds. You can take a stroll on one of the nature trails to learn more about the unique ecosystem that surrounds you, or you can rent a boat and head out onto the waters of Lake Erie. You can test your angler's luck and see what you can catch, or instead join a controlled hunt (provided you have all of the necessary licenses and supplies).

Explore the Area

Experience the outdoors from a different perspective with a visit to the nearby Oak Openings Preserve Metropark. With 50 miles of boardwalks and trails, you will get to see plenty of Ohio’s unique habitats. If you’re traveling with children, the on-site playground is a great place for the kids to burn off some extra energy.If you’re traveling to the area in the warmer months, then plan for a visit to the butterfly attraction in Whitehouse. On the property of a farm, the site contains more than 1,000 species of butterflies from all around the world. You can see caterpillars, chrysalises, and butterflies soaring through the air.History lovers should plan to spend some time at the Fort Meigs Historic Site. Known as “Ohio’s War of 1812 Battlefield,” Fort Meigs is a reconstructed replica of the original. However, a lot of the earthwork of the original fort is still visible. Visitors are encouraged to explore the grounds. You’ll get to learn more about the multiple battles fought here, see historic photographs, and maybe even see a reenactment.When you make plans for your RV camping excursion, you may need to restock and refuel your rig. Luckily enough, there are plenty of options to choose from when you need to replenish your supplies.Ohio is rather notorious for its chili, including in Cincinnati, where it's often put on top of spaghetti. However, Toledo has a slightly more classic approach to the dish. Given Toledo’s rich central European heritage, it isn’t surprising that the area is known for its chili dogs. No matter how you prefer your hot dog garnished, try branching out by adding some local chili on top.

Questions about RVs?


What type of RV should I choose?


Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Do the RVs have bathrooms?


Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


How does check-in work?


Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
