DESCRIPTION


Toledo Beach is an excellent, man-made harbor. It has good, deep water and is a favorite stop-over for large vessels - power and sail. It sits at the edge of what used to be the hude Black Swamp that enclosed the entire west end of Lake Erie.

Throughout the 1800's, it was progressively drained until all that remains are the marshes along the western shoreline.
