Overview

Overview

Both picnic shelters at Dam Site Recreation Area make for a pleasant getaway at Delaware Lake.

Shady Ridge Shelter is nestled under elms atop a grassy ridge, providing privacy from surrounding areas, while Elm Grove Shelter is cradled between rows of trees just 50 ft. from the parking area.

Natural Features:

Both reservable shelters are near the dam on Delaware Lake in central Ohio. The lake is hugged by forests, which provide a habitat for groundhogs, pheasants and white-tailed deer.

Recreation:

Pack a picnic or fire up the grill with friends and family. Anglers might want to bring their rods and take advantage of excellent fishing opportunities on the river below the dam.

In addition, the Division of Wildlife stocks fishing ponds in the 4,670-acre wildlife area adjacent to Delaware State Park.

Facilities:

Both picnic shelters provide water and electric hookups, playgrounds, a volleyball court and easy access to restrooms. An open grassy space is ideal for field sports like soccer.

Shady Ridge provides more privacy, while Elm Grove boasts a textured patio with pedestal tables and a group grill.

Nearby Attractions:

Delaware State Park is just over a mile from the picnic shelters and offers lots of activities, from jet skiing to disc golf.

A series of low-intensity hiking trails, ranging from .25 miles to 1.6 miles, traverse the area and connect with the lakeshore.
