Northwest Ohio has so much to offer those who love to spend time outdoors.

With over 200 acres of scenic Maumee River waterfront, nearly 50 miles of Lake Erie shoreline and ample public hunting opportunities within a 90-minute drive, Toledo is a sportsman’s paradise.

It is the perfect place to fish, hunt, camp, and boat.

Walleye, yellow perch, smallmouth bass, and white bass are the most popular fish to catch in Lake Erie. Anglers can catch northern pike, steelhead trout, catfish, and panfish in rivers, streams, and reservoirs.

Those interested in hunting have the option for whitetail, waterfowl, turkey, and small game such as dove, squirrel, and rabbit.

Michigan and Canada also provide excellent areas to hunt and fish and are also within a drivable distance of the Glass City.

If you simply want to enjoy the great outdoors, you can visit the Metroparks of the Toledo Area, multiple Ohio State Parks such as Maumee Bay, or camp at one of the local campgrounds.

There are additional opportunities to rent a boat or take a boat ride, ride bikes on several of the bike trails, or simply walk through one of the many city parks.
