Thursday Evening Lake Paddle - Caesar Creek

Caesar Creek is a multi-purpose reservoir serving the functions of flood control, water quality, and recreation, including fish and wildlife. The lake was built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and leased to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. At normal summer pool the lake covers 2,607 acres, fed by a drainage area of 237 square miles, and has 40 miles of shoreline. The dam site is located three miles above the mouth of Caesar Creek, a tributary of the Little Miami River.

Caesar Creek is the deepest lake in Ohio, with a normal water depth of 115 feet near the dam. Steep shorelines falling off rapidly into deep water are characteristic of the lake, especially in the lower end below S.R. 73. Numerous bays and inlets are present around the lake, ranging in size from less than one acre to more than 70 acres.

Enjoy leisurely after work paddle on Caesar Creek. The paddle will be approximately 1-2 hours and distance will be decided by the group.


We will meet promptly at 6:15 PM and unload boats at the ramp. We will head north up the Caesar Creek or the Anderson Fork.

If you are running late, please call. I will provide my cell number once RSVP's close.

• Start

We will push off from the shoreline no later than 6:30 PM.

• Finish

We should be out of the water 8:15 PM + or -.

• Duration

Expect to spend about 1.5-2 hours on the water.

• Difficulty

This paddle is suitable for paddlers with flat water experience.  You must be 18 years of age or older and sign the liability waiver.  Its not a hard paddle, however there are obstacles to maneuver.

• What You See

Birds, wildflowers, wildlife.

• Restrooms

There are no restrooms available

• Food

Bring water and snacks.  We could have dinner and beverages after the paddle at Stone House Tavern in Waynesville.

A boat that tracks well would be ideal, but not necessary.  This is a flat water paddle and a recreational boat will do well.
