Geneva State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The obvious draw here is the park’s location on the shores of Lake Erie. It fronts the lake for about 2 miles. Campers have access—via a marina with a six-lane boat ramp to the lake and its central basin, an area that fishermen from far and wide target to catch walleyes above all else, but also yellow perch, catfish, and steelhead. You need not bring your own boat, though. There are numerous charters based here. If it’s not fishing you’re into, the park has a natural sand beach for swimming, several areas of freshwater marsh, and some mature woods. You can explore that using 8 miles of trails, 2 of them paved for non-motorized bikes. That varied habitat means you can find some plants that are more commonly found on the Atlantic coast than in Ohio, species such as sea rocket, seaside spurge, beach pea, swamp smartweed, and leafy sedge. Bird life is varied and abundant, too, so bring your binoculars and camera."
