Middle Bass Marina Fully Underway
The State of Ohio Marina project on Middle Bass Island is probably the largest single project in the past 50 years on the U.S. Erie Islands.
After spending about $10 million to acquire the land for the new state park, more than $12 million is being spent on the first part of the marina project. Eventually there will be more than 300 boat slips and a free boat launching ramp for visitors.
The first phase of the marina, which is directly next to St. Hazards, is planned to open next year.
These photos show the excavation that will result in about 10 feet of water to accommodate all kinds of power and sail boats.
For now, anchoring in front of the St. Hazards condos and beach is permitted. It's a short walk to Hazards from the beach.
