Are you looking for a great place to have a beautiful, beach-front picnic? You can never go wrong when the weather's nice at Headland's Beach! There are lots of trails and this is an awesome place to collect sea-glass. The park has a couple pavilions you can rent really inexpensively. The pavilions have nice, large, steel grills for you to... More

I lived within a few miles of Lake Erie all my life and always headed to Mentor Headlands each weekend as a child, then with my friends as a teenager, now with my husband watching beautiful sunsets.

My wife and I spent a day on the beach. We are only an hour drive away. The beach is pure white sand. This make the sand feel very hot. My wife went searching for beach glass.

We enjoyed our visit to this beach. It was our first trip here and we were not disappointed. It really was hard to believe this was Lake Erie and we were only 2 hours from home! The gravel in the sand is a little hard on the feet, but that is to be expected for a lake beach. It makes... More

Headlands is set in great proximity to wonderfully quaint, small towns, so if the itch of venturing off the beach for food or other leisure activities itches, you are in luck! The beach rather large and alive with wildlife-scattered with dunes and other preserved areas. The park is wonderful for either a day's adventure into the unknown of their multiple... More
