State Route 358 (SR 358, OH 358) is a 0.92-mile (1.48 km) long north–south state highway in the northern portion of the U.S. state of Ohio. The southern terminus of SR 358 is at a T-intersection with SR 163 nearly 5.75 miles (9.25 km) east of Oak Harbor, just north of the Portage River. Its northern terminus is at SR 2 at an intersection just outside of Camp Perry about 3.50 miles (5.63 km) west of Port Clinton.

This two-lane state highway was created in the middle of the 1930s. Throughout its history, the primary purpose of SR 358 has been to provide state highway access to Camp Perry. Today, it also provides access from SR 2 eastbound to SR 163, as well as from SR 163 to SR 2 westbound, as an interchange between the two routes approximately 1 mile (1.6 km) to the east does not allow for those connections. The entire length is SR 163 is a part of the Lake Erie Circle Tour.
