Maumee Bay State Park offers not only the finest of recreational facilities in the Midwest, but also a unique natural environment created by the convergence of the land and Lake Erie. The lodge, cottages and golf course are nestled among meadows, woods and marshes teeming with wildlife. The balance of recreation with the natural world gives visitors a diverse experience in a coastal environment. The Quilter Lodge, Ohio’s eighth state park lodge, opened in May of 1991, overlooks the Maumee Bay of Lake Erie and offers 120 guest rooms. The lodge features racquetball courts, game room, saunas, whirlpools, indoor and outdoor pools, conference and meeting rooms, dining room and lounge and snack bar. The deluxe cottages are equipped with gas fireplace, heat and A/C, equipped kitchen, living area, two bedrooms with a loft, or four bedrooms. The park boasts a modern family campground with 252 sites equipped with showerhouses, flush toilets and electricity. The campsites are open and spacious and border natural meadows and ponds which are open to fishing for campers only. Three Rent-A-Camp units consisting of a tent, dining fly, cooler, cook stove and other equipment can be rented during the summer. Rent-A-Yurt offers a microwave, stove and refrigerator, along with futon beds. Several miles of hiking trails in the park wind through meadows and young woodlands, with some paved combination trails for bicycling and cross-country skiing. A 2-mile boardwalk traversing swamp and marsh wetlands has interpretive signs, an observation blind and tower and wheelchair accessible loop.
