Lake Erie Bluffs is nationally significant: The 600-acre Lake Erie Bluffs property will permanently protect a significant amount of wetland, meadow and mostly undeveloped lakefront habitat used by rare and common plant and animal species.

Amazingly, the property remains largely unspoiled by previous development. The mix of 40-foot high beach bluffs and open sandy and cobble beach across 9,000 feet of shoreline are the site’s dominant features. The beach area hosts trees, shrubs and small plants including the majority of the park’s rare plants.

Visitors can enjoy low-impact recreational activities such as hiking and fishing at this new park. Improvements made to enhance public use include parking lots, restrooms, and installation of gravel trails with a scenic overlooks and two grand access point to a natural beach along Lake Erie.

  • This place was a very pleasant surprise. It was my first time here and what prettyittle jewel of a park it is. The trails are well maintained and winding. They blue through wooded areas and to the shoreline. For any camping people out there, they would be surprised to learn there are a few secluded camping spots right close to the shore. I will definitely go back again
  • Beautiful beach for finding beach glass! Not too crowded. I wish I would have walked up the overlook, I'm sure it's a beautiful sight from there. I will next trip! There was ample parking.
