South Bass Island State Park is a 33-acre state-owned park on South Bass Island in Lake Erie. It is a scenic landmark offering visitors incredible views of the Lake and surrounding islands and access to Lake Erie for swimming, fishing, and boating. The large wooded campground and family lakeside picnic area offer a quieter atmosphere than the raucous entertainment of downtown Put-In-Bay.
A boat launch ramp near the picnic area provides boat access to Lake Erie. If you don’t have your own boat, watercraft rentals are available next to the ramp including power boats, fishing boats, kayaks, and jet skis.
