Mill Hollow is beautiful all of the time! Our children love to dip toes in the river, and play on the playground set. The paths are great to meander through. Lorain County Metroparks is awesome!

I have been visiting this park since I was a young child. It's a great place for children to explore nature. It's also a great place to have family gatherings.

This is one of the prettiest parks I've ever seen. It's actually two parks - Bacon Woods and Mill Hollow. The grounds are well taken care of, the staff is friendly, and it's a beautiful place to picnic or walk. There are several trails - you can get a map in the office. Lots of Canada geese, beautiful trees, cliffs... More

We enjoyed several of the trails at Bacon Woods. They are well maintained and a clear map is at the trailhead. We also enjoyed seeing the shale cliffs on the river. Lots of picnic tables and bathroom facilities.

If you want to skip rocks, this is the best place I have ever seen. The shale cliffs provide lots of small flat rocks along the Vermilion river. The park also has lots of picnic tables and a playground for the kids.

Great trails! Beautiful views of the river. Picnic areas, Frisbee gold, and amphitheater with music on Sundays. DO NOT speed in the park, as they are frequently pulling people over!

I am fortunate to say we live but a hop, skip and a jump away. It is a beautiful park. The park service works hard to provide events throughout the year. Summertime is always exciting. They hold concerts every summer. The entertainers are top notch and very talented. The rangers are friendly and always available to help you or answer... More
