Fun at Clay’s Park Resort and Campgrounds!

We love to travel as a family, but I admit – we have not done much travel to the Midwestern region of the U.S., and that has got to change. We lived in Green Bay, Wisconsin for a few years, so I was turned off by the abnormally cold winters and grueling hot summers!

I am a big warm weather-water-tropical-destination lover, so I would not normally look to the inner states to get my fix. I love traveling to the islands, such as Maui, Hawaii, Curacao, the Cook Islands, and even Costa Rica, and various places in Europe. Ohio is a destination to add to your bucket list – it’s closer and home to Clay’s Park Resort!
