Old Oakland Beach Hotel
Years ago, Conneaut Lake was surrounded by lake-front hotels that all overflowed with visitors and entertainers all summer long. Just north of the Midway was the Oakland. The identifying feature of this hotel was the large ship that jutted out over the lake and housed the dance floor. Only one of the old hotels remains today, the hotel at Conneaut Lake Park. The Oakland, like the Midway, was torn down in the late 1960s.

New houses sit on the old Oakland Beach Hotel property. We often walk through this area.
