Van Buren State Park

12259 Township Road 218

Van Buren State Park is quietly nestled in a small but valued remnant of woodland surrounded by beautiful corn, wheat and soybean fields in northwest Ohio. 251-acre Van Buren offers a calm, peaceful retreat with camping, fishing, hiking and picnicking opportunities that can be enjoyed year round.

Been camping at Van Buren for 12 years. They have made improvements to the camp area over the years which makes camping her e good. Has good trails for hiking and biking. Do not come here if you are looking to fish or boat. The lake has been hit hard by field run off. The water is so dirty that it will only sustained carp or bull catfish, not bass, crappie or blue gill. The lake at it's deepest spot is about 4 feet because of all the sediment.

Van Buren state park is a clean, enjoyable experience. The disc golf course is semi shaded and thus a little challenging with the trees and some water. If you're looking for a place to have a picnic, or enjoy some disc golf or fishing, then stop by and check it out.

We were checking out the campground, which has been improved since we last visited. There are new vault toilets, an outdoor movie theater and two camper cabins. A big drawback for some people would be that there is no shower house or flush toilets, but if your camping vehicle has a fresh water holding tank, there's a spigot to fill up at the entrance to the campground. The sites are not overly long, so some big rigs probably won't fit. Not all of the sites have electric hook ups. The sites on the outside of the circle have trees bordering them, giving a little bit of the woodsy feel. We haven't actually camped there, just drove through to check it out, but hope to camp there soon.

It's March 28, 2018, and we're happily tucked away in our 5th wheel. Water is available by a tank up before you set up. We are in the Family loop. There are 50 amp service sites. The volunteer park host was not in the park yet. Registration is by the honour System

My husband and I visited Van Buren State Park this past week. He was fishing and accidentally caught a painted turtle. We released it. It was the first time he caught a turtle when fishing!!😀
