    Unlike its name implies, Catawba Island is actually a part of the Ottawa County Peninsula which has rapidly become a preferred tourist destination for pleasure boaters and campers. The earliest inhabitants were members of the Erie Indian tribe who were routed by the Iroquois. Over the years the peninsula found itself home to the Ottawa Indians. General Harrison stationed men on Catawba Island during the War of 1812 to prevent a possible English invasion and it is thought that some of these men may have settled as permanent residents. However, most of the residents were from Connecticut who relocated to the Firelands. In the early years, grape growing became an important part of Catawba’s economy beginning in 1860. In 1871 there were 345 acres of vineyards. The Catawba Wine Company had a cellar with a capacity of 13,000 gallons. Catawba Island was an agricultural area of vineyards, orchards and truck farms. Development today is converting some of this land to promote tourist activities but much of the agricultural heritage remains. Road side fruit and vegetable stands abound. There are plentiful marinas and summer homes and condos with boat docks available. East Harbor State Park offers RV sites, Rent-A-RV sites, deluxe camper cabins, dock rentals, restraint, marina, fishing, hunting, a 7-mile trail, as well as playground and activity equipment. Lake Erie Islands Park at Catawba Island offers island retreats both festive and casual with fishing, boating, swimming and camping available.
