Trip Report Kelley's Island, Ohio

Jump to last reply

Our family recently spent a long weekend on Kelley's Island and I wanted to share with all of you this wonderful spot! For many years I have heard of Put In Bay and after some research realized this was not the type of get away we had in mind. We were looking for something more layed back and not a party atmosphere since our children were with us.

Kelley's Island is located on Lake Erie and makes a great get away destination. We drove about 3 hours and arrived in Marblehead, Ohio which is where we took a ferry to Kelley's Island. It cost us 96.00 round trip for the four of us, our vehicle, and 4 bikes. We camped (tent) on Kelley's Island State Park which also had access to a beach. I was surprised when I was making our reservations that there was not much availability. The campground was FULL.

After setting up our camp on Friday evening, we biked to a park where the town was sponsoring a Film Festival which featured two movies on Friday and Saturday.

Saturday we enjoyed the beach, kayaked, and drove the entire island. After driving around the island and admiring the lake, boats and house, we found another wonderful beach that was great for taking in the evening sunset.

It was wonderful sleeping right on Lake Erie an experience like no other!
