The Apple Valley Lake is a premier lake resort that is located in a small community in Knox County Ohio.  Apple Valley is comprised of 3700 picturesque acres that surround a sparkling 511 acre lake.  Apple Valley is well known throughout our state as one of the cleanest swimming and boating lakes in Central Ohio and features 3 gorgeous sand beaches. The lake has numerous natural springs that feed the lake with a constant flow of fresh water which explains why the lake water is so clear and the beaches are so clean.  The Apple Valley Lake is the perfect place for those looking for just a weekend get-a-way, a lake house, a vacation home / cabin or for those who desire the ultimate waterfront home.

Be sure  to bring your digital camera or video recorder because you are certain to capture some amazing photos and video footage at the lake.  Don't forget your fishing gear because Apple Valley is a fully stocked lake with some seriously big fish.  If you have small children or grandkids be sure to check out the fishing pond at Bennett Park which is the perfect spot for young kids who want to catch blue gills one right after another.
