From the Start

Land acquisition for Stonelick State Park began in 1948. A dam across Stonelick Creek was completed in 1950. This beautiful park was originally created to provide a wildlife area for Ohio’s sportsmen. Now the area is operated by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources – Division of Parks and Recreation and offers a variety of outdoor recreational activities.

Friends of Stonelick State Park formed in 2001 to help preserve and protect the parks educational and recreational offerings beyond what can be supported by tax dollars alone.

Friends of Stonelick State Park is a group of volunteers working hand in hand with park staff to benefit Stonelick State Park by enhancing its beauty and perserving its natural resources while offering activities and projects that improve park guests visits.

Many individuals have generously donated precious time to preserve and enhance this unique park. Their contributions of time, energy and commitment is greatly valued and much appreciated.
