Lake Erie’s shore hosts a great diversity of wildlife, especially after the sun descends below the horizon. Imagine curling up beside the fire in a lakefront campsite that’s bathed in moonlight, your soundtrack the sound of owls softly cooing somewhere in the distance. Fireflies cast short shadows as they shed illumination over the campsite, and nearby the shores of Lake Erie crackle as waves gently lap the shore. While it sounds like a dream, this experience has become a reality for a multitude of adventurous locals.
