My grandchildren have to make a special trip to Mill Hollow whenever they visit from the West Coast - now 2 of the 3 are young adults and have made sure their much younger brother loves it too

Many year round activities. Highlights include the car show in august and sledding in winter. It's great for the kids. Is also a great destination for cycling ( motor and peddle). Also great canoeing and fishing.

Great place to experience nature year round. Sled in the winter. Wade in the river in spring and summer. Great trails (our dogs love them) year around! They also have special events: old fashion car shows, herb fair, winter fest, etc.

Mill Hollow is beautiful all of the time! Our children love to dip toes in the river, and play on the playground set. The paths are great to meander through. Lorain County Metroparks is awesome!

I have been visiting this park since I was a young child. It's a great place for children to explore nature. It's also a great place to have family gatherings.

We enjoyed several of the trails at Bacon Woods. They are well maintained and a clear map is at the trailhead. We also enjoyed seeing the shale cliffs on the river. Lots of picnic tables and bathroom facilities.

If you want to skip rocks, this is the best place I have ever seen. The shale cliffs provide lots of small flat rocks along the Vermilion river. The park also has lots of picnic tables and a playground for the kids.
