Welcome to South Bass Island State Park
Perched atop the white cliffs of South Bass Island, this unique 33-acre park is a scenic landmark when viewed from the water, and in turn affords visitors great views and access to Lake Erie. The wooded campground and serene lakeside picnic area offer a quiet retreat from the bustle of Put-In-Bay. South Bass Island's companion park, Oak Point, offers facilities for boaters and picnickers close to the heart of town.
