A beautiful beach for swimming while lifeguards are on duty, picnic tables, a playground and a shelter available for rent.
"Most Romantic Beach"
Wendt Beach Park is a 170-acre lake front estate and was used as the Henry W. Wendt, Jr. family's summer residence, which they later renamed the "The Ridgewood."
The grounds present a panorama of cropped lawns, picnic tables and a playground. Structures reflect an earlier era of affluence: a log cabin, once a playhouse and a guest house- now a lifeguard shack and stables- now public restrooms.
Songbirds, Waterfowl, and Shorebirds are some of the migratory birds that can be watched and photographed.

Pan Fish, Catfish, Walleyes, Northern Pike, Bass, Perch and Muskies are always there to challenge all anglers in Lake Erie.
Camping and open fires are prohibited on Wendt Beach. Alcohol is by permit only. Department of Parks, Recreation and Forestry regulations apply.
