South Bass Island State Park

The entrance to the South Bass Island State Park, with official signage.

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.”

Rob H: “This is a clean and beautiful park with a nice playground and plenty of open green space for families to picnic or just lay out and enjoy the sun. Right next to the water with jet ski and kayak rentals. Cabins are available with a small shop for some of the things you may need when staying.”

Ravi D: “Awesome place for camping. Words can not explain the beauty of this place. Our tent was right near the cliff with a beautiful view of lake Erie. Full hook up sites, electrical and water hook up sites and RV sites available, but away from the cliff. A quite place with lot of green foliage, clean restrooms/shower area, hot water, fish cleaning area and  great park rangers make this place one of the best. Surprisingly there were no mosquitoes except for harmless fish flies/mayflies. The only way to access this park is through ferry.”
