I started out at the marina (as suggested in the Ohio Lake Erie Birding Trail Guidebook) and saw a number of ducks and geese swimming in the water off of a beach.

I lived here from 2000 to 2008. It is calm and relaxing with beautiful scenery. I will be back to visit this summer.

Bring the kids and you can fish off of the landing. Watch the wild life and the boaters on the lake. Peaceful and beautiful.

View migratory birds, as well as local, some people even come from Cleveland for this and Lake Erie, and Conneaut Township Park and our wonderful huge sandy beach on Lake Erie. We of course go there all the time. It's all connected. Huge D-Day Landing in Sept.
