Middle Bass Island

Middle Bass is a family friendly island located 1.8 miles north from Catawba Island Ohio, where the Miller Ferry transports passengers and vehicles to Middle Bass & South Bass (Put in Bay) Islands. If bringing a vehicle to Middle Bass, you MUST make an appointment 2 weeks prior to your arrival date, with Miller Ferry at 800-500-2421.  If you choose to visit us without a vehicle, no appointment is needed. Keep in mind there is no public transportation on the island.

Middle Bass is a great get away from the noise and tensions of everyday life. Ride your bicycle, take a run or walk, visit our restaurants. Go jump in the lake! Enjoy the nature trails we have on the island, bird watch to your hearts content. Look for our Eagles nest at the airport! Our Townhall is a great place to play.  A softball field, playground equipment, paved basketball area (one hoop) for the kiddies and adults alike. There are bicycle and golf cart rentals on our island if you aren’t the walking kind! Take a tour.

For more touristy experiences, take the Sonny-S Ferry to Put in Bay and take in the museums, Butterfly House, Perry’s Monument, the Carousel at The Candy Bar, shop to your hearts content. MANY restaurants and bars, and first class wines at the wineries! Rent a golf cart and explore the island!

We have a well stocked general store for any food or supplies you may have forgotten. The store is pretty well stocked if you need anything, including bait for the fisherman! There is a fantastic pizza/sandwich/salad/ and bar attached to the store also … most trips to the store take longer than usual, as you may want to quench your thirst while there, and maybe an ice cream cone?
