The new 50-foot coastal observation tower at Lake Erie Bluffs overlooks the lakeshore with multiple viewing platforms along a staircase that culminates in a deck featuring 360-degree views. The height and location of the tower provide visitors with a unique view of the lake and the surrounding woods, fields and wetlands, along with a variety of wildlife – particularly a large number of bald eagles that are regularly seen at the park.
The tower is located nearest the Clark Road entrance (2901 Clark Road). If the parking lot is full, the Lane Road entrance (3301 Lane Road) is just around the corner where visitors can park and access the tower by way of a beautiful short trail.
The tower is open, weather and conditions permitting, during regular park hours (6 am to 11 pm). It will be lit at night. The tower will be closed during the winter.
