Erie Bluffs State Park is the name of the proposed state park, bordered on one side by Elk Creek, abutting the Fish Commission property with the Elk Creek access. I found a map on the internet but haven't a clue how to attach. It shows a fisherman's path going to the lake, restrooms, and an area to access and launch on Elk; all part of the park. There was even discussion about combing the fish commision property with the state park. I haven't heard anything about it for a while, but it looks like a great plan.

Saaaaay that sounds interesting. Maybe a plan in the works, PFBC trade this property for other property. Hmmmmm, WCW maybe light at the end of the tunnel.???

But why won't they tell us 'bout it??

First of all what I type is just my understanding of things I could be wrong please correct me if I am...JUST MY 2 CENTS
Erie Bluffs is State Game Lands or was there is boat ramp bathrooms parking picnic pavilion and trails which did get updated with gravel and signs last couple years.
It's a great property I enjoy it and alot along with alot of others nothing fancy...a small mountain separates the lake/mouth from parking which makes it necessary to WALK.
I think a floating dock at ramp would be helpful but it's not a bad spot to launch smaller boats when mouth is open...WCW

Heres a pic of property at mouth that PFBC owns...the boat ramp symbol is where ramp is now covered in debris mouth is just upstream currently- this old sat pic.
I think where I have 2 markers with A you could set up another small boat ramp.
Just my pipe dream and keep mouth open enough for boats under 20 ft...JUS SAYING...WCW

LOL, there is nothing "proposed" about it....
 
The 587-acre Erie Bluffs State Park lies along the Lake Erie shoreline in western Erie County, twelve miles west of the city of Erie. The park has:
  • One mile of shoreline
  • 90-foot bluffs overlooking Lake Erie
  • Elk Creek -- a shallow stream steelhead fishery
  • Several plant species of conservation concern
  • Uncommon black oak woodland/savannah
  • Great Lakes region sand barren ecosystems
  • Forested wetlands
The only developed areas in the park are the Elk Creek Access area and the Main Entrance parking lot.
Erie Bluffs State Park is designated as a day-use park, with the exception of fishing and boating. Swimming is prohibited at the park.

And all that was done is some trail work and an additional parking lot I believe- ramp and bathrooms are not "NEW".
Again its a nice place to get out but the other property at mouth could use some improvements.
How much did they spend renaming property and putting gravel on trails I wonder???
Ok going back outdoors daily rant done...WCW

Sadly, DCNR is not very much into fishing, so do not expect them to do any upgrades..

I’m late to the party here. Making my typical “it’s almost stillhedz time, Sumer hiatus from here is over” so I hopped on the boards. WCW, that is pretty awesome dude. I’m sure it ain’t easy to catch those while YAKKIN like that, and it’s probably a work out too! But that’s sweet.

Stopped by the Elk Creek launch yesterday, if you are wanting to launch a smaller boat, there is big ol tree limb right in front of the dock . Also props to whoever zipped tied a small ladder to the pipe bollard.

I like Elk the way it is, my vote is no or minimal improvements.  Waters gonna do what waters gonna do.  Keep it natural.  If you make it another Walnut, it just becomes another nuthouse.  I go to Elk to avoid the nuthouse.  If you like nuthouses feel free to go to Walnut.  Also Conneaut isn't bad at all, for whatever reason makes it different than the nuthouse is lost on me.
 
Last time I was up in Early August the mouth of Elk was about 2' wider than the beam of my 16' boat but plenty deep to get through.  If it closed up to impassable since then it will eventually reopen when some water goes where it wants to go.  Back when I started fishing there the mouth was about 150 yards West of where it presently is.  I like the wild nature of it.
