About the Lake

Thomas O. Marsh Park Fishing Lake is a natural spring fed lake with over 4,000 feet of accessible shoreline. Regularly stocked throughout the season, the lake is home to carp, catfish, crappie, bass, bluegill, northern pike, perch, trout and walleye. The Bait House carries fresh live bait and your basic tackle needs. Beverages, snacks, and hot sandwiches are also available for purchase. Throughout the fishing season, Thomas O. Marsh Park Fishing Lake hosts special events including overnight fishing.

BOATING ON MARSH LAKE – STARTING JULY 1!

Hand-powered boats are required to have a current and valid Ohio registration sticker (OH numbers) OR the alternative registration decal from the State of Ohio, and pay the current daily pass fees ($10 per vessel).

This includes: kayaks, canoes, rowing shells, rowboats, and jon boats.

Swimming in Marsh Lake is prohibited, therefore, the use of paddleboards or windsurfers is NOT permitted due to the likelihood of a patron being exposed to a swimming situation during the use of these items.

Boating is only permitted during Bait House operating hours until dusk, and after daily pass fees have been paid.
