4th of July Weekend?

Thinking of coming up from Cincy to camp in Put in Bay for the 4th of July weekend (Fri-Sun). Whats going on that weekend? Is the island packed for the holiday?

Every weekend over the summer packed - but the 4th and Christmas in July are the 2 busiest of the year. Lodging is most likely almost, if not already completely sold out (and there is a 3 night minimum pretty much anywhere on the island for the 4th).

As for camping, the state park's website is showing sold out. There are usually a few sites that can't be reserved, and are "1st come, 1st serve" - but from past experience, these go VERY quickly, most likely by Thursday for a holiday weekend.

If you decide to go, I'd call the campground immediately to see if you can get a space.

Good Luck!

As said before the weekends for the summer months are always busy, but summer holidays are the most popular.

With that said it may be hard to find a place on PIB, you might try Sandusky area if you can not find on the Island.

Th Island will have fireworks starting at 10pm that is put on by the area Business's. The best seating is around the Monument, but get there early,early!!!

Have a good time!!
