We checked out ODNR’s Natural Resources Park at the Ohio State Fair (ongoing through August 3rd). Among other things, we got to see the staff capture ducks from a pond before dogs could be released to retrieve duck decoys. :-)
Headlands Beach State Park contains the largest natural sand beach in the state of Ohio. The beach located on Lake Erie in Lake County has a mile of beautiful sandy beach. The park is very popular with swimmers and sun bathers in the summer.
Tar Hollow State Park — We’ve been going to Tar Hollow for many years. Its a great place for camping. The camp sites are usually not crowded (don’t tell anybody), the area is very scenic, and there are many miles of hiking trails.
