Everything you could ask for in a lakeside escape, minus the long drive.
Everything you could ask for in a lakeside escape, minus the long drive. Whether you’re a boater looking for the best view of the Fourth of July fireworks, a craft beer connoisseur hankering for the latest offerings at Buckeye Lake Brewery or seeking out the perfect date night (watching the sun set over the water as you toast to the good life, of course), this southern Licking County haven is the getaway you’ve been searching for.
Recent revitalization efforts have transformed the former “Playground of Ohio” back into a hotspot: One where families can enjoy a picnic lunch on a warm summer day, nature lovers can marvel at the one-of-a-kind Cranberry Bog and foodies can sample the best cuisine the lake has to offer. No boat? No problem. The four-mile Buckeye Lake Dam offers a perfect opportunity for a scenic stroll, jog or bike ride--no life jacket required.
