Buckeye-Lake is a village located on the shores of a lake by the same name in central Ohio. The population of the village is approximately 3,000. Buckeye Lake is Ohio's oldest state park and has long been a popular tourist destination for the state. The lake was constructed in 1826 as part of a canal system built to provide interconnecting waterways for the state. With the arrival of the railroads, the canal system became outdated and many miles of canals were abandoned. The feeder lakes that were created to provide water for the canals were turned into public parks. By 1900, Buckeye Lake was a popular tourist spot with several amusement parks and lots of cottages surrounding the lake. In 1949, it became an official state park. The 3,100-acre lake is a very popular boating lake, allowing unlimited horsepower, along with sailboats, canoes, pontoons and rowboats. There are 3 public swimming beaches and four picnic areas located at Buckeye Lake. Anglers fish the lake for perch, bluegill, crappie, muskellunge, largemouth bass and catfish. In the winter, the lake is used for ice skating, ice fishing and cross country skiing (weather permitting.) Nearby attractions include the Hebron Fish Hatchery, Buckeye Lake Historical Society Museum, and Dawes Arboretum.
