BERLIN LAKE, Deerfield, Ohio – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District is informing campers, fishermen and boaters that the Mill Creek Recreational Area campground and boat ramp will be delayed in opening until June 29. The campground and boat ramp area is opening later than normal due to an on-going construction project that will have all roads to the campground closed at the normal start of the season. The construction project, which broke ground March 14, is part of a multi-year effort to make repairs to critical infrastructure that services the campground, failure of which caused a shutdown and partial opening of the campground during the 2017 camping season.

The district recognizes the inconvenience this delay may cause to the public; however, we look forward to providing the best camping experience for our visitors. The day-use area adjacent to the Mill Creek campground area will remain open.

For more information about Berlin Lake, contact the Project Office at (330) 547-3801.
