    Ottawa Metro Park Campground is located on the northeast side of Lima, OH. This is truly a gem of a park, very well managed and maintained. Thirty sites are all paved and level, the bathhouse was spotless with free hot showers. It was such a pleasant spot that we extended our one-night stay to three nights.

    This is one of the nicest bathhouses one will encounter anywhere. It was absolutely spotless and offers free hot showers.

    There is a 1 3/4 mile hike/bike path around the park and campground. It connects to the Rotary Riverwalk, a 13-mile paved walkway down through the city of Lima.
