About East Harbor State Park
Situated on a peninsula of land stretching into the waters of Lake Erie, the park encompasses 1152 acres. Beach Ridge habitat, similar to that at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, is an attractive magnet for migrating songbirds, in the spring and fall. Wetlands, wooded areas, and ¾ miles of beach front provide habitat for many other bird species.
Open daylight hours.
