More Than 400 Acres Of Fishing, Swimming, and Boating

Located Northeast of Fredericktown, Ohio about 1.5 miles, lays Knox Lake, spread across 469 acres of land. This lake was constructed in 1954 by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife. Boat ramps are located off of County Road 5 on the upper section of the reservoir and the marina and main boat ramp access are on Armentrout Road on the reservoir's lower section. The picnic areas, docks and rental boat slips, boat ramps, and parking lots are maintained and kept safe and clean for visitors by The Division of Wildlife.
