On-Property and In-Park Activities

Roosevelt and Turkey Creek Lakes offer public beaches for swimming and boating. Rowboats and canoes are available for rental at Turkey Creek Lake. Boaters may spend a day on the Ohio River with access from the park's marina facility.

The park and surrounding state forest invite hikers to discover the plant and animal life of Shawnee's forested hills. The 60-mile Shawnee backpack trail in the state forest takes hikers to some of the best wilderness areas in Ohio. The forest also offers 75 miles of bridle trails. There are several nature trails in the park, from one to two miles in length.

The lodge also offers Geocashing on property.  Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices.  Participants nagivate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocashe hidden at that location.  Shawnee has hidden a few cashes throughout the forest and you are able to rent the equipment at the Front Desk of the lodge.

Picturesque views of the Ohio River provide a scenic and challenging round of golf at our 18-hole championship golf course
