Metroparks is pleased to once again partner with Toledo Jeep Fest to open a pop-up Jeep Overlanding site at Middlegrounds Metropark called Toledo Jeep Fest Base Camp.
Middlegrounds will once again host Jeep Overlanders during Toledo Jeep Fest Weekend offering an overnight opportunity at the park, conveniently located less than a mile from the Toledo Jeep Fest event footprint and more than 50 downtown restaurants and attractions.
Toledo Jeep Fest Base Camp is a nod toward the future when Metroparks makes camping a permanent part of downtown with the completion of Glass City Metropark campground.
$80 for two nights ($40 per night) [Friday & Saturday]
The goal of overlanding is to become reliant on your vehicle for transportation and shelter in order to enjoy the nature around you. Base Camp will offer a unique urban overlanding experience with limited overlanding sites located beneath the Anthony Wayne Bridge at Middlegrounds Metropark.
Each overlanding site is 15x30 and can accommodate groups of up to 8 guests. Each site offers the following: space for one Jeep overlanding vehicle and room for one additional tent (up to 10x10). Guest may bring a portable grill 18 to 20 inches in diameter.
**No RV’s will be permitted at Toledo Jeep Fest Base Camp. There are no electrical or waste connection available for Jeep overlanding sites.
