About Lake Erie Bluffs

Lake Erie Bluffs features the natural wonder of Lake Erie in Lake County's front yard. Nationally significant, the property permanently protects a significant amount of wetland, meadow and mostly undeveloped lakefront habitat used by rare and common plant and animal species. 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 park. Amenities include a reservable three-season shelter, restroom, trails with scenic overlooks and access to a natural beach along Lake Erie.A 50-foot coastal observation tower at Lake Erie Bluffs is situated overlooking the lakeshore with multiple viewing platforms along a staircase that culminates in a deck featuring 360-degree-views. The height and location of the tower provide visitors with a unique view of the lake and the surrounding woods, fields and wetlands, along with a variety of wildlife—particularly a large number of bald eagles that are regularly seen at the park.Clark Road entrance: 2901 Clark Rd.; Perry Twp., Ohio 44081
