PICKAWAY COUNTY, Ohio (Dimple Times) – With the full reopening of Deer Creek State Park and their lodge, there are a lot of great activities that families and individuals can partake in to help kick-off summer.
The lodge was shut down these last few months due to the COVID-19 crisis but with the phases of reopening, Deer Creek and other state parks across the state of Ohio were able to open their doors to the public on June 5th.
With people looking for something to do, Deer Creek has a lot of great things to offer that are perfect for any age, ranging from hanging out on the beach, taking a boat on the lake, or even partaking in a staycation at the lodge or in one of their cabins.
While visiting the marina, you can now reserve time out on the lake in one of the new boats that Deer Creek has to offer. The marina was recently bought and is now owned by Deer Creek State Park and exciting updates were made to the type of boats that guests can take out. You can reserve anything from one of their 10 or 16 passenger pontoons or a jet boat.
The marina currently has two jet boats, three 10 passenger pontoons, and one 16 passenger pontoon. The pontoons include awesome features such as comfortable seating, radio with Bluetooth capabilities, and even USB ports to charge devices.
If you’re looking to spend more time on land, a staycation or a vacation at the lodge is a great way to getaway. Inside the lodge, guests are able to stay and book rooms, enjoy delicious food for breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Rafter’s Restaurant.
Guests staying at the lodge are able to enjoy the outdoor pool, visit the gift shop or Rafter’s and know that social distancing guidelines are being implemented in for guest’s safety.
If you’re looking to plan your next trip, Deer Creek State Park and Lodge is the perfect place to unplug for a little while and enjoy some time in nature and with family.
