Ohio State Parks originated from the canal system and reservoirs developed in the 19th Century by the Ohio Canal Commission for commercial traffic. With construction beginning in 1825, these areas soon became popular for fishing, boating, and family outings. Presently Ohio has 73 state parks located in 60 counties, with land totaling 127,277 acres and water totaling 79,751 acres. The parks offer an endless variety of recreational opportunities. From resort facilities to secluded day-use areas, the state parks provide the perfect setting for an afternoon outing or extended vacation.
