Oak Openings now offering campsites

SWANTON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A new campground is open to the public now at Oak Openings. The Metropark near Swanton is now offering tent camping sites.

Park officials say they converted a former picnic area into a campground. They added new restrooms, have fire rings, firewood, and a group shelter. Park-goers say they think the new campground is a great idea.

"Any opportunity to give people the chance to be outdoors more is a great idea, particularly because so many people are disconnected from the outdoors," said Randy Huber, a Wood County resident.

Huber says he thinks it will get a lot of use by campers.

"It will give them an alternative that's close to home that's relatively inexpensive," he said.

Individual campsite will rent for $20 per night, and group campsites for $30 per night.
