Caesar Creek State Park

January 13, 2011

Camping at Caesar’s Creek offers a lot of variety to campers. The lake is a great spot for fishing and boating. The campsites closest to the lake are premier sites and fill up quickly. The views from the lake sites offer the best scenery in the park. The lake offers great views for photographers to take lovely sunset shots and also great for fall color shots.

In addition to the camp sites there are camper cabins and cedar cabins available to visitors that can be reserved from April 1 to October 31.

We hiked 2 trails within the state park Flat Fork Ridge and the Gorge Trail. Both trails are listed as moderate and can be easily hiked. The water levels in Ohio were down for the spring and summer so unfortunately the “Horseshoe Falls” on the Flat Fork Ridge were dry. The trails in the park offer some variety, but I think that the Lake was the jewel of the park and the hiking was pretty tame.

I would definitely recommend the park based on the lake and the quality of the campground. Caesar Creek is a great close spot for campers and provides a variety of activities for park visitors. I wouldn’t give the trails as high of recommendation as other hiking areas in the state of Ohio, but I think that the park offers enough variety for campers and hikers to make it worth a visit.

The Caesar Creek Lake US Army Corps of Engineers Website addresses the creation of the lake and the park facilities.

According to the US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS website:

Congress authorized Caesar Creek Lake under the Flood Control Act of 1938. The Louisville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers designed, built, and operates Caesar Creek Lake.

Caesar Creek exists as a cooperative management effort among the Corps of Engineers and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources – Divisions of Parks and Recreation, Wildlife, and Natural Areas and Preserves.
