Camping on the cliff—a great get-away

I recently camped here at South Bass Island State Park. Because of current Covid-19 restrictions, the campground was pretty empty (which I hear is very unusual for summertime). I camped in a tent-only site on the edge of the 25 foot cliff. Great for adults, but no safety barrier for young children.  Campsite #97 and#99 have fire rings right on the cliff. (I camped at #99.)

The facilities at the campground are clean and well maintained and the people who work at the camp store are friendly.

The campground is well shaded with mature trees throughout and it over looks Lake Erie to the West making for great views of the sunset. Some sites are right on top of each other and others are well spread out.

  • Night view from site 99
  • Night view of fire ring at site 99
  • Beach view overlooking the cliffs.
  • Fire ring at site 99
  • View out my tent.
  • This is the setup at site 100
  • The waves of crashing on the rocks is really peaceful. The rocks are large and you definitely will want to wear shoes. The views are amazing!
