Ohio State Parks

From the time we left Bob and Shelly’s until the time we were due in PA, we had about 10 days travel time.  So we were moving fast (for us!)

Maumee Bay State Park sits on the shores of Lake Erie.  It is a Passport America park during the week (half price camping!) and our friends Jan and Don were going to come visit us for the day.
Nice, large private site

There are miles and miles of paved bike paths that we enjoyed.

Lake Erie

Pretty views
There is also a  nice nature center and boardwalk trail that we took advantage of.

Our next stop was Geneva State Park.  This was a return trip for us.  As a bonus, we were meeting up with our friends Sharon and David.

Beautiful wildflowers on our bike ride 

Perfect place to relax and enjoy the views

Sharon and I acted like kids!

We were treated to some beautiful sunsets by the lake

All too soon it was time for our  “see ya down the road” byes to Sharon and David and headed to the farm.


  1. Maumee Bay SP is remains one of our favorite state parks anywhere:)

  2. Great to see you two have fun and enjoying time with David & Sharon:o)) Geneva On the Lake is a great place. We did the covered bridge ride and loved all the different bridges!!!
