Have you been dreaming of an unforgettable island getaway? A blissful retreat from everyday life in a remote but sociable location? A holiday that brings as much fun and excitement as it does relaxation? Then what are you waiting for? Kelleys Island State Park is the unmissable spot for you! You'll find this precious park on Kelleys Island, nestled inside a unique ecosystem and surrounded by breathtaking natural features.
This wooded wonderland sits on a dazzling lake with a sandy beach that could rival the Caribbean, and on the off chance you're not swimming, you can take your boat out from the launch ramp or rent a few kayaks for some family fun on the water! Your darling dog can't join you for a dip on the designated swimming beach, but don't fret -- you can still walk them on other parts of the surrounding beach. There are plenty of puptastic activities furever friends can enjoy together!
Have you got a hike-loving hound at the end of that leash? Then you're gonna love the trails on Kelleys Island! This island has not one, but two nature preserves -- North Shore Alvar State Natural Area, which has a two-mile mountain trail, and North Pond Nature Preserve which has a one-mile paved path featuring an observation deck! There's also the East Quarry Trail for bikers that prefer wheels over walkies! While trying out these tracks, you'll see rare limestone plains and glacial grooves, and you'll have plenty of opportunities to spot some wildlife!
When you're not out on the water or exploring the 676-acre park, you can enjoy a family feast in one of the pretty picnic areas. There's also a playground for little ones to enjoy, and a volleyball court too! The best thing about this captivating campground? You can choose how you want to spend your time here. You can bring your own trendy tent and camper to their full-hookup sites or to a non-electric spot, or you can even rent a yurt. Canine campers are more than welcome to join you, but note that only designated sites are pet-friendly, so be sure to request one when booking. You'd have to be barking mad not to stay here!
