Bay Point Marina & Resort is an exclusive 730 slip marina with access to Lake Erie & Sandusky Bay. Boats ranging from 20 to 50 feet are nicely accommodated. Some of the amenities Available here are: modern showers & restrooms, Marina Service, launch ramp, Guest dockage, 24-Hour guard gated entrance and Yacht Club membership (ILYA affiliated). The facility has 3 cute cottages that rent out and they are awesome for a week’s stay during the summer.  



No pets! With their 184-Lot Campground, camping directly on the shores of Lake Erie is a must! This is seasonal (April 1st to October 31st). Bay Pointe truly is a unique, all in one resort, campground and marina with large family beaches, and sports activities galore (even a 9-hole, Par-3 Golf Course).



Writer’s note: Along with all the available family-style ‘fun in the sun’ I mentioned above, merely 10 minutes away is the famous Cedar Point Amusement Park! Voted #1 Amusement Park for 11 years in a row, this place of fun has the most roller coasters in one park and has the most rides of any other amusement park in the U.S.! Plan at least a day to hit all that is available here. There is even a mile-long white sandy beach, an indoor/outdoor water park and a “Challenge” park with attractions such as towering RipCord Skycoaster, two super-challenging 18 hole miniature golf courses and two high-speed go-kart tracks. My absolute favorite ride here is The Witch’s Wheel!


Brockway Northcoast Marina & Campgrounds is a brief 20 minute cruise from Lake Erie on the scenic Ashtabula River, this marina & campground has it all for boaters. They have room for 250 boats and feature camp sites for 32 RVs. All the amenities you would expect, such as modern and clean restrooms and showers. They are the only facility on the river with both a pool and 2 spas! Sun tanning here is heaven with beautiful beaches just minutes away. 


Writer’s note: If you are coming by car, Brockway is located across the street (north side) from the Ashtabula Hospital. While Ashtabula County is amazing and home to sixteen covered bridges, nineteen museums, fifteen award-winning wineries and two wild and scenic rivers, my favorite sun tanning spot is close by in Geneva on the Lake, Ohio’s very first “summer resort”. Geneva State Park is within the village and offers camping, great cabins for rent, fishing and swimming with an excellent 300-foot sandy beach!


Huron Lagoons Marina is located on the Huron River about 1 mile from Lake Erie, this full service marina is family owned and operated for over 45 years. They have slip docks available from 20' to 40'. A swimming pool, game room, a basket ball court and a sandpit volley ball court are available for anyone docking with them. The Viking's Den Restaurant is onsite to serve hungry boaters and you can choose to sit inside the "den" or out on the deck, catching some lovely sun rays. The ship's store is well equipped and ready to handle any repair work or accessory need that one may have. Their able and experienced marina technicians are certified to work on Mercruiser, Mercury Marine, Volvo, Yamaha, Larson Boats and Century Boats. They are a Larson & Century Boats dealer. For winterizing needs they offer indoor and outdoor boat storage with shrink-wrap.


Writer's note: The owner of Marconi's Restaurant which has some of the best pasta and pizzas in the area just opened up a new Drive-Thru Breakfast Shop (European Style) that I've been dying to check out. Can't decide which of the delectable breakfast goodies to try? I’ve heard you can order the sample platter with a bit of everything in small bites. Interesting to mention, supposedly, nothing at Café Piccolo is fried, that it is all baked in non-stick pans from The Pampered Chef, which means less fat and less calories than an average fast food breakfast sandwich!
