This Little Known Lake Near Cleveland Will Be Your New Favorite Summer Destination

Northern Ohio is characterized by the presence of Lake Erie, which has speckled the Cleveland area with beautiful beaches and coastal parks. However, Erie is not the only lovely lake in Northeast Ohio, and it’s certainly not the only location for summertime swimming or casual days at the beach. This 87-acre lake located in the Northeastern corner of Medina County is part of the Rocky River Watershed, and its cool waters and stunning surroundings make for the perfect summer escape.
