Glacial Grooves State Memorial sign
The glacial grooves are the largest glacial grooves in existence. Viewing these grooves scoured into the native limestone bedrock by the advancement of the Wisconsin glacier 30,000 years ago is a sight to remember!

Glacial Grooves are the finest example of glacial scouring/scoring in North America and probably the world. This glacial grooves is about 430 foot in length, 15 foot deep, 35 foot wide and is only a small sample of the grooves that at one time extended into the lake. The remainder of the grooves was quarried, burned to make lime, and sold for limestone. Since 1923 the site has been protected and maintained by various state protective agencies and groups, and is currently under management by the Ohio Historical Society.

sign about the tributary
The deep grooves and markings were caused as the heavy glacial wall, which had rocks and boulders embedded in its base, moved south carving out the relatively soft island limestone. Embedded and very visible throughout the limestone is a multitude of fossils.

Kelleys Island State Park
Kelleys Island State Park Beach is not a large beach, and the water was pretty shallow. The deepest it got was maybe 5 feet deep – at least in the part of the beach where swimming is allowed. This is actually a bay off of Lake Erie, one of the five Great Lakes
