Sugar Island (Ohio)
Sugar Island is one of the Bass Islands of Ottawa County, Ohio, USA in southwestern Lake Erie. It is a private island and one of the smaller of the island group at 0.123 km² (30.39 acres). It lies just off the northwest shore of Middle Bass Island. It is located in Put-in-Bay Township, Ottawa County, Ohio.
Sugar Island was once part of Middle Bass Island, connected by way of a short isthmus. As trees were lumbered from this strip of connecting land, Lake Erie began to reclaim the newly exposed, loose soil. Thus, the connecting isthmus sank into the lake, leaving Sugar Island separate from Middle Bass Island.
