Elys Ferry Landing is located at the end of Elys Ferry Road in Lyme, Connecticut. It abuts the Connecticut River and offers a single car parking area. The landing features steps leading to a sandy beach and provides beautiful views of homes, a dock, and the Essex River Museum across the river. It’s situated near the Ely Meadow, a long, narrow strip of land south of Ely’s Ferry that is elevated enough for wild grasses to grow between the river bank and the Lord Cove marshes. This area was historically managed as commons land by its proprietors. Today, Elys Ferry Landing serves as a tranquil spot for visitors to connect with nature and enjoy the scenic beauty of the Connecticut River.

This site is part of the Connecticut River Paddlers Trail, which includes campsites, access points, and portage trails along the river.
