Cleveland’s Best Bodies of Water

Bay Point Sandbar

The Bay Point Sandbar is a great place to congregate with other boaters. You'll find the 68-acre area at the narrow peninsula off Marblehead in Sandusky Bay. It is owned and preserved by the Western Reserve Land Conservancy, so there are plenty of beaches and dunes that constantly change because of wind and waves.

Cuyahoga River

Although there's no dock space near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, there are a few places where you can legally tie your boat up in Cleveland's most popular summer spot. Enjoy the live music at Shooter's or try some of the restaurants at the Flats East Bank, like the huge Margaritaville or Lindy's Lakehouse.

Put-in Bay

The marina in downtown Put-in-Bay is a place to park and have a shower. It is close to DeRivera Park, which offers numerous amenities for visitors.It is also easy to walk to many shops, restaurants, and Perry's Monument. Put-in-Bay may have the only public mooring balls in Lake Erie, so be sure to take advantage of those while you are visiting.
