Things To Do

South Bass Island has so many famous activities to check out, so we made a list of the most popular to make it easier for you! The most popular and famous attraction is Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial. This statue was originally built to honor the victory that Com. Oliver Hazard Perry was able to achieve in “The Battle of Lake Erie” during the War of 1812.

You can also check out the South Bass Island State Park and the famous South Bass Island Lighthouse. The location of the lighthouse is near the Miller Ferry Line dock on Put-in-Bay which has ferries come from Catawba. The State Park has picnic areas, restrooms, and anything else you could need.
