Maumee Bay State Park

A few years ago, I visited Maumee Bay State park and enjoyed it so I decided to go back.   I was there May 28 – 31.   While there I walked and biked in the park and I went to the Ottawa National Wildlife refuge and the Maggie Marsh Wildlife area.  One of the reasons I like the park is the huge campsites that are paved.  The picture below is the “yard” of the site beside mine and my RV. 

I didn’t spend much time in Ottawa National Wildlife refuge, but enjoyed a morning in Maggie Marsh Wildlife area.  When I first got to the wildlife area I noticed a Bald Eagle nest and an eagle was feeding her little one --

I spent a good bit of time on the boardwalk --

I spotted this bird that may be a Yellow Warbler (I’m not very good at smaller birds)--

I don’t know what type of bird is in the picture below, but he seemed as curious about me as I was about him.

A disadvantage of the area is that it is very close to the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station.

From here, I headed to Shipshewana, In. 


  1. Ho did you like Maumee Bay State Park as a destination place? We intended to stop there but then our solar install took so much more time than it should have that we had to skip it.

  2. I'm enjoying following your travels, and your nice photographs.

  3. Sherry - For a couple of days it might be ok for a destination park. Between the beach, biking /hiking trail and the nature boardwalk there is probably enough to do for a couple of days. But I really enjoy the wildlife areas that aer within 15 miles or so of the park.
