Middle Bass Island is part of the Lake Erie Islands system. It is located in the center of Lake Erie, a couple of miles north of South Bass Island.

Get in[edit]

Ferries from the mainland originate from Catawba Island. Ferries run several times/day during the prime tourist season, scheduled sailings during spring/fall as weather allows. There is a small airport on the island (2085 x 67 ft.), as well. Middle Bass can be reached by pleasure boats, but lacks the fine natural harbor found at South Bass. A new 300+ slip marina is planned to open soon, and 50 slips are available at the State Park.

A small ferry, the Sonny S, takes passengers to/from nearby Put-in-Bay, which has a grocery and other services.

Get around[edit]

Given the small size of the island, Golf carts are popular as transportation. Cars are permitted on island roads, though speed limits are low. Bikes are a common means of transportation and the island can easily be walked as well.

Drink[edit][add listing]

Middle Bass Island is much less "touristy" than South Bass/Put-in-Bay, and has far fewer drinking establishments.

  • St. Hazard's Resort has a well-stocked bar & microbrewery.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

  • St. Hazard's Resort, on the east side of the island has condo-type accommodations and camping.
