Where in Ohio is the Hoover Reservoir?
Located just a few miles northeast of the junction of OH-161 and I-270, the Hoover Reservoir begins at the Hoover Dam in Westerville, which created the Reservoir by damming the Big Walnut Creek. With an area of roughly 5 square miles, the Reservoir extends north to the town of Galena and offers parks and attractions such as the Hoover Dam Park, Hoover Reservoir Park, the Apple Orchard Recreation Area, and Mud Hen Marsh.
What Can I Do at the Hoover Reservoir?
The possibilities for outdoor enjoyment, exercise, relaxation, and even education are nearly endless! The Hoover Reservoir Park offers acres of lush fields, miles of trails, scenic sandy beaches, and even disc golf. Boat ramps offer access to the reservoir, and a scenic boardwalk offers the perfect opportunity for bird-watching or fishing. It’s also a popular exercise spot—stairs leading down the dam provide a true cardio challenge, while multi use trails offer plenty of room for walkers and joggers.

Join a club—or enjoy an event! Whether you’re an avid sailor or have never set foot in a boat, the Hoover Sailing Club and the Columbus Sailing Club have plenty of programs, classes, and events to offer.
