**We will not be accepting stays November-March, but if you have a weather, mechanical, or medical emergency and need a place to stay, please contact us directly.** Soaring Eagles is about 4 miles west of Port Clinton, 13 miles north of Ohio Turnpike Exit 110. Our 3.4 acres sit just 1 mile off Lake Erie. If you have questions or want more information, please don't hesitate to ask. While we are accepting just 1 rig at a time for now, please contact us if you are traveling in a group, arriving/departing at the same time. (We have the parking space, but passing/parking multiple units may be tight if you’re not together) Important to know - our property is directly adjacent to a highway but traffic does die off for the most part in the evenings. We are also within a half mile of a very active railroad crossing - there will be trains and train horns. Additionally, if you are sensitive to gunfire or loud noises, be advised - Camp Perry is 1.5 miles away; this facility hosts shooting events, military training, and weapons/ballistics testing - you may hear this, mainly during the daytime, on and off at any time of year. So, while our property is in the country, it is not as quiet as some would hope to enjoy while camping. Also remember, this location is in a wetland/coastal area - along with the wildlife, there will be mosquitos/flies during warm months. (Sorry, we suffer through them too!) We can provide local information if you wish or give you privacy/space to explore the area on your own. If we are out enjoying our patio, dock, or a campfire, please feel free to join us if you are so inclined. Suggested Local Attractions: Port Clinton, Camp Perry, Sandusky, Cedar Point, the Lake Erie Islands, Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, Marblehead Lighthouse, Catawba Island.

Please do not leave pets in your unit unattended if you leave the property for more than a few hours. Pets may be off leash if you are exercising them, but otherwise please keep them tied up. If they are small pets, you will want to be with them outdoors at all times - Bald Eagles are overhead daily, and actively hunt the area. There are also the occasional owl or coyote looking for meals at night. *** Feel free to walk around the property and pond, however some local wildlife burrows - the ground may be uneven especially near the pond - please watch your step! *** No swimming or fishing in the pond. The floading dock is off limits unless we are present. *** Children must be accompanied by an adult if near the pond (As a parent you should appreciate the risks of open water as much as we do) There is plenty of yard otherwise for them to enjoy; please set boundaries for them.
Please park anywhere on the stone/gravel of the driveway circle. Remember, the further away from the garage, the more cords/hose you will need if wanting electric or water. Both are near the entrance door to the garage. If you need to fill water, you may do so at any time you wish. Travel to the property is easily accessible to any size rig, just a few hundred feet off OH2. We have a large, level, circular driveway with only a slight grade where it enters the roadway. There are no obstructions or low hanging trees. The driveway is more easily accessible when entering from OH2 to the west. The drive has a westerly angle to it which may make it more difficult for rigs to enter from OH163 to the east. We use the driveway from both directions with a 32’ Class-C (223” wheelbase) w/towed vehicle. Tow/Towed Vehicle parking anywhere on gravel near your unit.

This is a bit delayed, sorry🙃. We had a wonderful stay. The directions were good, but we missed the obvious sign on the right. It was a simple turn around and we came back and we parked by the pond. We were lucky that we were the only ones there and had the while place to ourselves. We had trouble with our refrigerator and the hosts helped us very much to get it working again. They did not have to do that but they’re very friendly and it was not a big problem as far as the refrigerator went. Also, you can fish in the pond and I got some very nice bass that I released. Overall, it was an excellent st￼ay, and the hosts are wonderful! We would DEFINITLY stay there again!

Very easy to find and access. We picked our spot next to the fire ring near the pond and set up and prepped dinner. Hosts came out to meet us just before we were planning to head up to their house to thank them for the accomodations. Dennis and Trish were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and provided a detail sheet of 'might need to know' info about safety and their contact/wifi information. The site is very close to level and charming. There is the nearby road, but it quieted in the evening. We have found trains at almost every HH/BW that we have visited and find it funny. Almost like white noise. Hope to see a Bald Eagle in the morning. Great spot to exploring the area - two lighthouses on the list!

Great location by the lake, easy on-off, level circular driveway with plenty of space, WiFi, and very friendly host! Highly recommend eating fish and chips from Jolly Roger by the Port Clinton lighthouse, but go early as they will be packed.

HH is a great option for us as we cannot plan far ahead because of health issues. Dennis and Trisha provide a great welcome package and set us up with power and water. Enjoyed the knowledge and experience they offered of boondocking. And the regional options were great. Thanks again!!
