Main entrance to Mosquito Lake State Park re-opened

Posted: Updated:

Just in time for the Memorial Day weekend, the main entrance road to Mosquito Lake State Park has re-opened.

Recent heavy storms collapsed a large culvert on the access road. A new, larger culvert has been installed and the road re-paved ready for the weekend's holiday visitors.

Mosquito Lake attracts close to 1.5 million visitors annually. Its 235 campsites are sold-out for this holiday weekend. It is Ohio's second largest inland lake and offers a variety of activities.

“We have a marina that rents boats. They've got motor boats, fishing boats, kayaks. They serve breakfast for this weekend, Saturday, Sunday, Monday morning,” said Josie McKenna, Mosquito Lake State Park.

The 3,200 acre park also has a swimming beach, hiking and biking trails.
