The exact location is on Woodin Road in Chardon Township. Woodin is off Old 44
(North) which branches off of Route 44. Im not sure exactly what the
dimensions of the park is but it is large because at least a mile before you
turn onto Woodin you see other signs for the park and parking. If you look on
something like map quest its gives you an idea and it is large. Also like I
said directly across the street, under the bridge is my girlfriends families
house and if I just mentioned to them some people might be trudging up the
creek they wouldn't mind a bit. I remeber you also mentioned you were looking
to do some collecting in the Upper Cuyahoga and I found several places of
access. There is a nice park off 87 (north of 422), Russel park I believe, as
well as a park in Mantua, you could just take 44 north about 30 minutes from
Chardon actually. Hope this helps.

Also saw a large Bald Eagle while collecting...
