About Port Clinton Lakefront Preserve
The Port Clinton Lakefront Preserve is located in Port Clinton between Waterworks Park (west) and Port Clinton City Beach (east), totaling nearly one mile of publicly accessible Lake Erie shore. The preserve was purchased in 2009 with funding from the Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP) administered by the ODNR Office of Coastal Management, and a Clean Ohio Green Space Conservation Fund grant. The city of Port Clinton, the Trust for Public Land and the Black Swamp Conservancy were integral partners in the land acquisition. The city owns the property and Black Swamp Conservancy holds a conservation easement over the preserve, requiring that the land be permanently maintained as a nature preserve.
The preserve includes wetlands, marsh and a one-third mile sand beach. A crushed-stone walking trail through the preserve was completed in 2014. The trail connects to both adjacent access sites.
