This lake has been public fishing since it opened, long before I was born. Apparently now the surrounding landowner has taken over the only road to the lake. I'm not sure exactly how this happened, as it's illegal to landlock a property that's already had a right of way granted, and also illegal to raise livestock on government property. I'll find out what the local government has to say about it, and write back. Josh Says Josh Guisinger

Park is both pleasant and picturesque, and it's in the vicinity of Crooksville Reservoir, and a fine close by hotel is Super 8 Zanesville.
