Who needs to go to Alaska when you have Maumee Bay State Park? The wildlife preserves nearby are full of them, so take your binoculars and educate yourself on what the immature eagles look like (scruffy gray/brown with no white head). Their numerous enormous nests are much easier to spot if you go before the leaves are out fully. The Maumee Bay area is one of the largest bird migration sites in North America----thousands of them stop to rest there before flying over Lake Erie on their migration to and from Canada. If you're a fan of warblers, this is as good as it gets. The campground is huge, with large lots and has a real 'prairie' feel to it----wild shrubs border most sites so there's a lot more privacy than in many state park campgrounds. Completely flat so you can bike for miles, and plenty of family activities on the weekends (ice cream socials, etc) The deer are out every night and are pretty brave in coming close. The golf course on the grounds is a beautiful Scottish-type course---challenging and wild. A beautiful beach which is huge and sandy. All in all one of the best state parks in Ohio.
