Lake Milton offers the best in water recreation. Boating, fishing and swimming are popular at Lake Milton State Park with a 600-ft. beach. Stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, canoes and pontoon boats are offered for rental in season at the Meshel Park area on the east side of the lake, just north of Mahoning Ave.
The scenic shoreline provides a habitat for waterfowls and shorebirds for visitors to enjoy. Three launch ramps and seasonal dock rentals are available. Anglers enjoy nice catches of different fish species that includes largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie and channel catfish, as well as walleye and muskellunge (both of which are stocked by the Division of Wildlife). A standard public archery range is located on the east side of the dam. Hunting is permitted in designated areas. A valid Ohio hunting license is required.
