Kelleys Island State Park
The 677-acre Kelleys Island State Park is packed with everything you need to enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, camping, and more. The State Park Campground has 129 campsites, including several premium yurts equipped with kitchens, baths, and living areas. The campground also features a playground, volleyball court, fish-cleaning hut, and plenty of restrooms with showers and flush toilets. The sandy State Park Beach connects directly to the campground, and kayak rentals are available during the summer season. Just to the north, a free public boat launch with plenty of trailer parking provides access to Lake Erie. The adjacent stone pier offers fantastic fishing and beautiful views of Lake Erie and Pelee Island.
The park is also home to a collection of beautiful hiking and biking trails. The North Shore Alvar State Nature Preserve, North Pond State Nature Preserve, East Quarry Trails, and Horseshoe Lake are all part of the State Park. These trails and preserves will take you through a variety of landscapes that provide insight into the geological and industrial history of Kelleys Island. The Glacial Grooves, while not officially a part of the State Park, are located right across Division Street from the State Park beach. The small picnic area across the street from the Kelleys Island School is the perfect stop for a midday meal. The state also allows limited hunting in certain areas of the park.
