Harrison County is home to three of the ten lakes operated by the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (“MWCD”). MWCD is the largest conservancy district in the state of Ohio, serving 18 counties and more than 20 percent of the surface area of the state. The lakes operated by MWCD are the impoundments contained behind dams built for flood control purposes in the 1930s and currently operated by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Tappan Lake, Clendening Lake, and a portion of Piedmont Lake are located in Harrison County. Collectively these lakes provide more than 4,200 acres of public recreational water in the county.
Commercial grape production and the development of wineries are fairly new to Harrison County.
The Vineyard 22 Winery, which is located just outside Cadiz is a short and scenic drive from our cabin.
The Wellstone Winery is located at 28945 Riley Rd. Freeport, Ohio 43973. You can check out their Facebook page by clicking here.
The “Boss Bison Ranch” is also a fun experience for the entire family near Possum Lodge.
