Atwood Lake Park launches park website


July 24, 2014

Information about Atwood Lake Park has never been easier to find than today.

The park has launched its own website at with plenty of features designed to provide updates and more to visitors, guests, campers, cabin guests and everyone who is interested in the park and its events and amenities.

“This web page is the best way to stay updated on everything that the park offers and is planning,” said Aaron Stump, Atwood Lake Park manager. “Our guests have asked us for years to give them a place for details about the park, and this web page delivers it.”

Improvements have also been made to the park’s online reservation system available at, where interested visitors can reserve campsites, cabins and picnic pavilions in a matter of minutes. Updates to the reservation system include the ability for users to create a profile which will streamline the reservation process for future visits.  Favorite campsites or cabins can also be tagged and remembered in the profile so they can be reserved again when a preferred location has been identified.  In addition, when scheduling a trip for a specific date range, inventory across the entire MWCD is searched and available locations can be displayed. If one location cannot accommodate the requested dates, the user can easily find another location to meet their needs.

Activities are planned throughout the camping season at Atwood Lake Park and all of the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) lake parks, and camping is available all year long. A complete schedule of events is available on the park’s website, too.

The full park season at Atwood Lake Park runs from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. Admission for a day at the park, including use of the swimming beaches and park amenities, is only $5 per vehicle during the park season.

Atwood Lake Park is located in Carroll and Tuscarawas counties, only a few miles from the Bolivar exit of I-77.

The MWCD, a political subdivision of the state, was organized in 1933 to develop and implement a plan to reduce flooding and conserve water for beneficial public uses in the Muskingum River Watershed, the largest wholly contained watershed in Ohio. Since their construction, the 16 reservoirs and dams in the MWCD region have been credited for saving an estimated $11.1 billion worth of potential property damage from flooding, according to the federal government, as well as providing popular recreational opportunities that bolster the region’s economy. A significant portion of the reservoirs are managed by the MWCD and the dams are managed for flood-risk management by the federal U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
