Cedar Point

An eerie howl echoes across the midway. Strange shadows skitter over the cabins along the Frontier Trail. Is that a fog rolling in from Lake Erie, or is it a presence from beyond preparing to materialize before your terrified eyes? Beware. The spooky chills of Halloween combine with the thrills of the world's biggest collection of rides and roller coasters during Cedar Point’s HalloWeekends®!

Mull Covered Bridge

Open from 8:00 a.m.  until dusk daily. Free admission

The Mull Covered Bridge was built in 1851 by the Henry Mull family to allow safe access for trade to the Mull mill. The bridge was open to traffic until 1962, when the road was diverted and a new bridge was constructed. In 1974 the Mull Covered Bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is currently managed in a cooperative effort by the Sandusky County Commissioners, Sandusky County Engineer, and Sandusky County Park District. It is open to the public everyday from 8:00 a.m. until dark, has a limited parking area, a bench, and descriptive historical marker.

 Eshleman Fruit Farm

New plantings are high density, dwarf trees that grow better quality fruit. The main orchard has trickle irrigation and many of the new varieties. The farm has a 20,000 bushel cold storage and a 25,000 bushel controlled atmosphere storage. This means we have top quality apples into the spring of each year. We produce about 18,000 bushel of peaches and 40,000 bushel of apples each year.

We have always allowed our customers to "Pick-Their-Own" fruit. "Pick-Their-Own" has been very popular, and we keep our "Pick-Their-Own" areas for the customers; we do not pick over this area first.

Open 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Cooper’s Mill Apple Butter & Jelly Factory

David and Miriam Cooper began in 1969 as a fresh fruit and vegetable stand in front of their home, but soon became known for miles around for their delicious homemade apple butter, jams, and jellies. David learned how to make jelly from his Grandmother when he was just 12 years old and David still uses these original recipes today. Our dark and rich apple butter is cooked in 50 gallon copper kettles over a wood fire.
