A microcosm of the botanically significant Oak Openings region in northwest Ohio, Lou Campbell State Nature Preserve is home to more than 30 state-listed species. High-quality habitats include wet sedge meadows, swamp forest, sand dunes, sand barrens prairie and oak openings.

Rare wildflowers seen here include wild lupine, grass-pink orchid, spathulate-leaved sundew, soapwort gentian, plains puccoon and Missouri ironweed. The varieties of habitat provide a number of landscapes for endangered wildlife including the frosted elfin and harvester butterflies.

The preserve honors Louis W. (Lou) Campbell, a well-known Toledo naturalist and outdoor writer.

Located east of the Toledo Express Airport along Crissey Road, south of OH-2.
