Ballast Island

Ballast Island

Ballast Island is a small, private island in Lake Erie, about one-quarter mile (400 m) northeast of the northeast tip of South Bass Island. It is known primarily as a navigation point for boats going to or from Put-in-Bay from the east. There are shoals between Ballast and South Bass, but there is a passage between known locally as "the wagon tracks". Ballast Island is partially owned by Mr. and Mrs. Americo Nerone and their five kids (Richard Nerone, Tom Nerone, Marianne DeLauro, Linda Reinert and Carl Nerone), there are currently 7 houses built on Ballast Island.

Lost Ballast Island was once a part of Ballast Island, but has since sunk into Lake Erie to become a reef.
