Exploring Kelleys Island: a glorious state park, plus improvements to the glacial grooves
The largest U.S. island in Lake Erie, Kelleys Island offers the perfect combination of nature-based attractions and human-made amenities.
Its small state park is one of Ohio’s loveliest and the island’s well-appointed downtown has choices for every palate.
At about 4.5 square miles, Kelleys is nearly twice the size of nearby South Bass, with a fraction of the visitors. About a quarter of the island is parkland.
