Travel From Cleveland To Catawba Island To Check Out The Area’s Youngest Marsh Preserve

Looking for a nature preserve near Cleveland that’s worth escaping to? The Greater Cleveland area has its own gems, but they can get crowded. Every so often, searching for a hidden gem of a park is a treat like no other. Today, we’re going to take a virtual visit to Great Egret Marsh over on the western stretches of Lake Erie’s coast. It is tucked across the street from the 1,831-acre East Harbor State Park, so you could start at the marsh and retreat into the forest across the street for a camping trip afterward. Immerse yourself in the wonders of nature… just don’t forget a bit of bug spray!
