East Harbor State Park Campground: Ohio's Largest Campground

Karen and I especially enjoyed our stay at the East Harbor Campground. Seven miles of wonderful hiking trails lead directly from the camping area along backwaters and wetlands of Lake Erie, ideal habitat for shorebirds, waterfowl and other wildlife. We also enjoyed the nearby sandy beach with 1,500-feet fronting on Lake Erie, and an immense shallow area where the water was quite warm in late August by Great Lakes standards.

This is the largest campground in the Ohio State Parks system with 365 electric sites and 205 non-electric. It was Labor Day weekend when we were here and the campground was filled to capacity. Those planning a trip to East Harbor in summer or on a holiday week-end are advised to make a reservation, which can be done through the website link below.

There is a well-stocked camp store and numerous recreational opportunities are available with equipment rentals at the camp office.
