Details for Tent Camping Lake Erie Bluffs Site A

This secluded, wooded campsite featuring cool lake breezes is located on the edge of the bluff. You will hear waves lap at the shore below and enjoy a private panoramic view of Lake Erie, complete with a dramatic and beautiful sunset (weather permitting).

Explore a nearly two-mile long stretch of natural freshwater beach, the sand scattered with lake-smoothed stones, driftwood and rare beach plants. As you look west along the shoreline, you may catch a glimpse of the Fairport Harbor lighthouse. Lake Erie Bluffs park falls within an important migratory flyway and features world class birding.

In 2013, the park district's biologist observed 90 bird species in two hours. Nine bald eagles were seen at one time! The campsite is a .25-mile westerly walk off the Shoreline Trail, accessed from the Lane Road parking lot (restroom available at east end of parking lot).

A picnic table, a grill and a fire ring are provided. Please note that water and electricity are NOT provided. Lake Metroparks recommends campers bring potable water for use during their stay.
