The South Bass Island State Park is the place to camp on Put-in-Bay. With over 100 plots, some with full electric hookups, you’ll be able to enjoy the great outdoors of Put-in-Bay. These plots go quickly though, so don’t delay.


Alex W: “Beautiful and secluded park, good quality facilities and quiet grounds. The roads are narrow, but kept in good condition. Driving large campers or trailers through certain parts of the park may prove to be a bit of a challenge. I’d love to come back!”

Baubi H: “Had the best week with my husband and a couple friends. Spent a lot of time wandering around the island just taking it all in. There’s so much to do. Lots of shops and restaurants. Great views of the lake. The campsite was in a decent location and I slept like a rock all weekend. Best weekend ever.” read more
