Knecht's Beach has never been, nor will be, a publicly accessible beach or marina. 

It is strictly limited to the residents of Knecht's Beach and their families. If you are not 

Knecht's Beach resident and are found to be using the beach, you will be asked to leave and the Ottawa Co. Sheriff will be contacted if you refuse to do so.


Knecht's Beach and Marina has been building Lake Erie memories for more than half a century. As a marina, campground & beach conveniently located just minutes from downtown Port Clinton and Catawba State Park, we provide the family-friendly, casual atmosphere that keeps people coming back for more.


Visit for a day, stay for a week, or settle in for the season - whether by boat or by camper, we'd love to accommodate your stay. More than 60 slips and 80 lots are available for docking and camping, and all who stay will enjoy full access to the only thing that separates you from the inviting waters of Lake Erie: our beautiful sandy beach!

Easy access to Lake Erie, a friendly community, and free WiFi are just a few of the amenities our guests enjoy. Pay us a visit and learn about the rest!
