Took our six and five year old grandsons to PIB Friday. We had great weather and a smooth ride to and from via the Jet Express. My husband and I have spent many weekends in past years enjoying the lively bar action, good food and lots of people watching sights. This trip was a very different experience. We start the... More

Each of the main Lake Erie Islands (South Bass, Middle, Kellys) has wineries, shopping, camping, state parks, and beaches although each has its own distinct destinations and personality. South Bass also has a National Park Service site, Perry's Victory national monument. If you have your passport or travel card you can also visit Pelee Island which is in Ontario, Canada.... More

Been going to the Islands on our boat for years and it doesn't matter which one you want to visit they all have something to offer. No boat, then you can take one of the ferries over. South Bass has Put-in-Bay a more entertaining, fun island. Middle Bass has a newer marina with a shuttle over to South Bass so... More

What a pleasant surprise! From the ferry boat ride to the island to the renting of a golf cart to ride around the island on. Fun ! Fun ! Fun! Nice restaurants , bars, wineries and beaches. Pleasant breezes along with a long relaxing day at this little northern paradise will brighten your day . Kelley's island is definitely worth... More

Have visited Lake Erie since back in the 60's as my mom and dad loved fishing there. Kelly's Island was very interesting with the glashiers that mother nature made. Camping,hotels,restaurants are there as well. Lots of private homes. Golf carts are available to rent and you have to get to Kelly's by Ferry. Very interesting Island.

Went for a family gathering for my daughter's birthday. We traveled by ferry at Catawba. The process for buying, boarding and traveling to the island was really fast and pleasant, although we traveled on Saturday before Labor Day. Island was full at its extension, however, it is a tiny island and all what you need to explore is a golf... More

We boarded the Kelly's Island Ferry in Marblehead, Ohio- bikes in tow- and treated ourselves to one of the nicest biking day trips we've enjoyed. The 4-mile square island has mostly level, safe roads and striking scenery as you travel around the western side. We explored Monument Point, a large rock with native American carvings, glacial grooves, a beach, hiked... More

I'm from Ohio and had no idea these islands even existed! I did a half day trip to Kelly's Island and Put in Bay and was in utter amazement, there was so much to see and do. I took the Jet Express Ferry from Sandusky, OH and went Island hopping. There was a lot of partying going on Kelly's Island,... More

Went for a long weekend at Cedarlane RV Park on Catawba Island, Lake Erie. What a great location! Large lots for the big campers, adult and childrens swimming pools, friendly owners and neighbors. The dogs have a great running park and only a couple miles from Lake Erie. We went to Catawba Island park and enjoyed fishing, wading and rock... More
