Status Alert: Boat Launch and Parking Lot Construction

A project to construct a new boat launch and parking lot at the main lot of Deer Creek Reservoir was originally scheduled for fall 2018. Due to heavy precipitation in November, the desired water levels for the boat ramp installation were not achieved and only a portion of the work could be completed. The boat ramp remains in the same condition as it was before the project began. We expect the park to be closed in the spring when the project is rescheduled.

Immerse yourself in nature as you explore this 334-acre reservoir nestled among nearly 1,000 acres of forest. Tucked into the northeast corner of Stark County, Deer Creek Reservoir is a rustic oasis for fishing, boating, bird watching, and picnicking. Impressive trees create a canopy over popular fishing nooks and a spacious picnic area right on the water.

Bring your bike or hiking boots because this park also serves as a trailhead for the 4.46 mile Mahoning Valley Trail.

You may catch sight of bald eagles, osprey, and migrating waterfowl along the shore, or white-tailed deer and coyote in the forested areas surrounding the reservoir.

This man-made reservoir was dedicated in 1954 and also serves as the primary water source for the City of Alliance.

Canoes and kayaks welcome! Other boats must use electric motors only at Deer Creek Reservoir.
