Swimming near by

First timer to hocking hills. We are coming the first week in August. Are there any places to swim? Lakes or pools?


Hi @Ysupt99, I hope you are looking forward to your trip! There are a couple of options to choose from! We have Lake Logan located in the city of logan that is about 20 minutes from the state parks! There is also lake hope located in the Zaleski State forest which is about 35 minutes from old man’s cave or about 25 minutes from logan! They have a nice dining lodge at lake hope as well, that I highly recommend!



If you go to athens, ohio (30 minutes from logan) they have a park called strouds run you can swim at as well!

As for swimming pools there is a new swimming pool in logan! located at

470 North Market Street, Logan, OH, United States, Ohio

Here is some more information on the pool! Swimming Pool Information | City of Logan

There is also a swimming pool in nelsonville which is about 15 minute from logan. Here is some more information! Aquatic Center – City of Nelsonville, Ohio Information Blog

hope this helps! :slight_smile:
