Lost Peninsula Marina, near Toledo Ohio, has been improved with a $2,500,000 upgrade. A new 6,500 square foot club house, 2,000 square foot heated pool, hot tub, paved roads and landscaping are being finished at this time. Water and electricity to all docks are part of the update. Prices for the summer docks start at $1,375.

“We are very happy to provide a marina value like this at a time when boaters need it most. We have nearby islands with beaches and the Walleye capital of the world here. With picnic areas, (2) restaurants next door and a (5) minute drive from I-75, this is a destination marina, well worth the drive to the Toledo area, “ said Chris Connolly, one of the owners.

“Our marina is directly on Lake Erie, you can take your boat to Put-In Bay, Cedar Point, or go by the water to several golf courses. Here, your boat becomes your summer home”, Connolly added.

Lost Peninsula Marina is a 550-dock marina where you can drive your car up to every dock. A fuel dock is located on the property. The two-story clubhouse has six private restrooms and showers, and a second floor for social groups and boat clubs. The upstairs balcony overlooks the heated pool, the marina and Lake Erie.

History of the Lost Peninsula

October 16, 2006

Lost Peninsula is a small part of Michigan that became separated because of the 1835 Toledo War, changing the Michigan/Ohio Boundary. It was also the staging area for rum runners, bringing illegal spirits into the United States from Canada.

The Toledo War
The Toledo War (1835–1836; also known as the Ohio-Michigan War) was the largely bloodless outcome of a boundary dispute between the U.S. state of Ohio and the adjoining territory of Michigan. The dispute originated from conflicting state and federal legislation, passed between 1787 and 1805, which left Ohio’s northern border uncertain. The governments of Ohio and Michigan both claimed sovereignty over a 468 square mile (1,210 sq km) region along the border, now known as the Toledo Strip. When Michigan pressed for statehood in the early 1830s, it sought to include the disputed territory within its boundaries, but Ohio’s Congressional delegation was able to halt Michigan’s admission to the Union.

Beginning in 1835, both sides passed legislation meant to force the other side’s capitulation. Ohio’s governor Robert Lucas and Michigan’s then 24-year-old “boy governor” Stevens T. Mason were both unwilling to cede jurisdiction of the Strip, so they raised militias and helped institute criminal penalties for citizens submitting to the other state’s authority. Both militias were mobilized and sent to positions on opposite sides of the Maumee River near Toledo, but there was little interaction between the two sides besides mutual taunting. The single military confrontation of the “war” ended with a report of shots being fired into the air, incurring no casualties. There was only one serious injury in the entire conflict: the stabbing of a Michigan deputy sheriff involved in the arrest of a partisan Ohio family.

In December 1836, the Michigan territorial government, facing a dire financial crisis, surrendered the land under pressure from Congress and President Andrew Jackson, and accepted a proposed resolution adopted in the U.S. Congress. Under the compromise, Michigan gave up its claim to the strip in exchange for its statehood and approximately three-quarters of the Upper Peninsula. Considered a poor outcome for Michigan at the time, the later discovery of copper and the plentiful timber in the Upper Peninsula more than compensated for the loss of the strip
