If the conditions are right later in the year, then you might be one of the lucky ones visiting Headlands Beach State Park. Cross-country skiing and sledding are possible when the snowfall arrives.
This state park has one big attraction in the summer months; the largest natural sand beach in the state. Ohio's Headlands offers a lifeguard patrolled beach, concession stand, and marked swimming areas for all to enjoy.
Why not introduce your friends or family to fishing in a state park. Obtain an Ohio fishing licence and see if you can hook catfish, rock bass, coho salmon, or one of the other species recorded as a 'common catch' in this fishing area.
A place to play, take photographs, relax, and enjoy your natural surroundings. Tables and grills are available for use, and a shelter house is open for advanced bookings.
If you're visiting from the local area, or staying in off-site Headlands Beach State Park cabins, extending your hikes will offer a great opportunity to see local wildlife. Explore the two trails in the state park, then head next door to Headlands Dunes State Nature Preserve. Walking Paths run over the area, which is a happy home to migrating birds and monarch butterflies.
