Thanksgiving Buffets at Ohio State Lodges for 2014

The Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources now publishes information on all the Thanksgiving buffets that are held at its lodges; see Celebrate Thanksgiving at an Ohio State Park for up-to-date information.

Last updated: October 23, 2014.

If you’d rather make reservations than dinner for Thanksgiving, lodges at Ohio State Parks are serving Thanksgiving buffets. Several lodges have information available on their Thanksgiving Day dinners at their website or on Facebook. We’ve summarized these and linked to the relevant page. For other lodges, we’ve obtained information by calling the lodge. The Malabar Farm Restaurant is not offering a buffet, but instead it is offering a fixed-price meal of three courses for Thanksgiving. Most of the restaurants require reservations.

  1. Hi Ohio, We had the good fortune quite a few years ago of attending your Thanksgiving Dinner event, which was great. My wife and I retired to Northern Michigan in 2004, but most of the brood remain in the Detroit Metro Area. I thought perhaps we could do the Maumee State Park Thanksgiving again in 2015. I noticed your 2014 Menu and article for Thanksgiving on the Web, but when looking at the upcoming event Calender for Maumee State Park I dont see anything scheduled for Thanksgiving. Question-Will there be the buffet for 2015 and how can I get reservation info, etc. Thank you in advance for any info you can supply. [Personal info redacted]

    1. is not affiliated with the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources, or the various lodges at the state parks. We put together a summary of Thanksgiving buffet announcements and published it at our site, but it was difficult to get the information. There is a list of events at the Facebook page for Maumee Bay State Park Lodge, but sadly the Thanksgiving event that’s listed is a past event from last year. Out of frustration at some point last year my husband just started calling the lodges that hadn’t posted anything about Thanksgiving, and we ended up collecting the information to post at our blog. We aren’t sure that we are going to repeat doing that this year. However, if you’d like to call yourself, here’s the number for the Maumee Bay Lodge: 419.836.1466 ext. 2
