We have a 200 sq. ft. shed that we will be converting into a cabin... someday:) It has a greenhouse room and loft for additional sleeping space or storage. Parking is right next to the shed. It is immediately connected to parking and a small playground for children to enjoy. When visiting, you'll enjoy a picnic table, 2 person swing, firepits, chickens, and probably our children. 

Our property is about 4 acres, and mostly wooded. Beware of mosquitos and ticks. You may hear flights (commercial and military) from the nearby Toledo Airport, and you WILL hear the trains pass by every few hours or so (tracks are just over 1 mile away). Also, it is a residential area, so there are neighbors and passing car traffic as well. 

If primitive camping outside the city, but close to civilization is your thing... come on by. I'll do what I can to ensure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

I believe I was the first Hip-Camper to stay at this location. According to my host, they are going to fix up their little cabin to be a sweet little doll-house and I have no doubt they will. As of this writing, though, the cabin was newly erected and just a shell of unfinished wood. There is a small table and two chairs inside, but nothing else.

For me, it was more than enough, as I typically just pitch my small tent on a piece of dirt, so this was a nice option for me. I just put my mattress and sleeping bag on the floor and had a clean bug-free place to stay for the night. Early in the morning, it pounded rain for about two hours, so it was nice not to have to pack up a wet tent.

Now I typically wouldn't "camp" in the suburbs of Toledo Ohio, but I was traveling through by motorcycle and that's where I needed to be, so I did not expect this would be a serene setting. However, I soon realized the location was only blocks away from a busy rail line and very long freight trains pass through almost continuously. The trains passed by, one after another, sounding their whistle at each intersection they passed through. For me this meant a sleepless night in anxious anticipation of the next train.

For those of you who can sleep through anything, this is a perfect place to crash for the night after a long day on the road. However, if you're a light sleeper, like I am, I would not recommend this location as your rest stop.

Thanks for the review Michael. I don't even think about the trains anymore. I'll be sure to include that information in the profile.

My five-person band was traveling across the midwest and we had a string of dates in Akron, Detroit, and Fort Wayne; Scott’s place was more or less located in the middle so we stayed two nights. Scott was super friendly and welcoming when we arrived, and continued to be a great host throughout our stay. The shed was a fine place to sleep with a sleeping pad and sleeping bag, and there’s plenty of space in the yard to pitch tents. There was also plenty of firewood provided, as well as trash/recycling/compost disposal, and a spigot for drinking. Overall we had an excellent experience, and I would definitely recommend this campsite!
