Enjoy fishing at this popular 3,500-acre Muskingum Watershed Conservancy lake, or relax while sailing, waterskiing or sun bathing on the sandy swimming beach. The Seneca Lake Park area also offers a more secluded retreat for camping or swimming in this scenic wonderland.
Planned activities are available for campers and day-users. The rake, largest of MWCD, is stocked with a variety of game fish and a full-service marina provides boat and motor sales, service, rental, boating supplies, bait, tackle and licenses. Hunters enjoy acres of land open during the season. The scenic, peaceful picnic areas include tables, grills and shelters. For a quiet vacation at the lake, there are two-bedroom cabins. Those looking for a more rugged stay will be pleased with more than 550 campsites, many wooded. And a visit to Seneca Lake would not be complete without stopping at the National Fish Hatchery for an amazing and educational behind-the-scenes look at fish breeding.
The lake is located off State Route 313, 12 miles southeast of Cambridge, Exit 37 from Interstate 77. For more information, call or write MWCD, 1319 Third Street, N.W., P.O.
