There’s nothing quite like a nice big lake on a hot summer’s day. Think of all the activities you can enjoy—fishing and boating, paddling, swimming, perhaps even a sailing race. It’s a great way to beat that summer heat!
If you’re looking for a fantastic place to cool off this summer in Central Ohio, you won’t want to stay away from the Hoover Reservoir.
What’s the Hoover Reservoir?
Located just east of Westerville and about 10 miles north of Columbus, the Hoover Reservoir is a 2,800-acre lake created by the Hoover Dam in Westerville. It’s surrounded by hundreds of acres of peaceful parkland and natural wildlife preserve.
What Activities Can Be Enjoyed at the Hoover Reservoir?
This beautiful lake and its surrounding parkland are quite popular amongst locals and visitors alike. The lake itself is a popular fishing spot thanks to its 10 horsepower outboard motor limit. This also makes it popular for paddlers and sailboats.
The Hoover Reservoir Park
There are even more activities to be enjoyed on the land around the lake. The Park includes a 27-hole disc golf course, miles of nature trails through scenic preserve, and a newly updated boardwalk. There are also several boat clubs around the park, including the Hoover Sailing Club, the Buckeye Boat Club, and the Columbus Sailing Club.
The Park is also a popular exercise spot—stairs leading down the dam provide a true cardio challenge. Determined runners can be spotted stair-climbing all year round.
Hoover Reservoir Homes
The only thing better than spending a day at the lake is spending every day at the lake! And the best way to do that is, of course, with a waterfront home. Waterfront homes on the Hoover Reservoir come in a variety of sizes, styles, and prices, but they do tend to be a bit more luxurious and high-end. If that’s not quite in your budget, you might consider buying a home in a neighborhood on the Reservoir instead.
