Course

The Sandusky River begins at the spring-fed Walton Lake, west of Ontario in western Richland County, and initially flows westwardly through the towns of Crestline and Bucyrus in Crawford County. In Wyandot County the river turns northward for the remainder of its course, flowing through Seneca and Sandusky Counties and passing the towns of Upper Sandusky, Tiffin and Fremont before entering Sandusky Bay.

In 1970, the river's course between Upper Sandusky and Fremont was designated a State Scenic River by the government of Ohio.

The Little Sandusky River is a minor tributary of the Sandusky. It flows northward from northern Marion County and joins the Sandusky in southern Wyandot County.
