East Harbor State Park

Lake Erie
Yesterday Laura and I finished up our mini-vacation at East Harbor State Park. East Harbor has hiking trails, camp grounds, and beaches. The beach is cool for a couple of reasons - it is very natural with the trees going right up to the beach and you can walk at least 100 yards out into the water and still only be about waste deep. The beach is on a narrow peninsula with Lake Erie on one side and the harbor on the other. The park also has marshes that are some of the last remnants of the Great Black Swamp. There was a decent amount of people around but it didn't feel crowded - but I have read that it is a very popular park in the Summer with lots of families camping and swimming.

You can walk all the way to the end of the break wall - there is a bench there - and I must have said something funny about it.

Sight Seeing
We kept popping quarters in this - looking out at Kelleys and South Bass Islands.
