This was our first visit to Chain O Lakes State Park.
We stayed 4 nights, 5 days. I discovered this park while asking for recommendations on a great place to camp and kayak. We were not disappointed. During our stay we kayaked 5 of the lakes, and enjoyed paddling through the woods on the channels.
The lakes are secluded and beautiful.
Kids enjoyed the playground
The bathrooms were kept clean
Paddle craft and electric motors only on lakes
Room for improvement:
Staff at the store did not know where to purchase kayak permits
Showers could be updated, did not drain well
Beach had many geese and goose droppings
We really enjoyed our stay at Chain O Lakes State Park, and will definitely return. The park is approximately 2 hours from the Toledo, Ohio area, but would still be worth a day trip for kayaking. This is an awesome park for kids, and our 6 and 8 year olds has a blast.
