Located on West Shoreline Drive at Jackson Street, the nearly 4-acre Jackson Street Pier is locally popular for fishing while catching scenic views across Sandusky Bay of Johnson’s Island, the Marblehead Peninsula and Cedar Point Amusement Park.
This site is a large impervious surface parking lot with a paved walkway around much of the pier’s perimeter. The pier’s rectangular shape affords 825 feet of waterline access. The pier is also the docking/boarding site for the Goodtime I, Jet Express and Pelee Islander ferry boats which seasonally transport passengers to the islands.
Jackson Street Pier is located in downtown Sandusky and is adjacent to the west of the G.A. Boeckling Building, which once served as Cedar Point’s winter headquarters. The building now houses the ODNR Office of Coastal Management.
The shipping channel is just north of the pier. During the shipping season, Great Lakes freighters pass just yards north of the pier. The pier and surrounding waters are also used for training by the city’s safety services.
The Sandusky Bay Pathway runs along the pier’s south end. An Erie County Historical Marker noting historical significance of Johnson’s Island as a Civil War Prison camp (see Ottawa County) is located here. During summer months, the city charges a fee for overnight parking at the pier.
