Overview
Lake Snowden Education & Research Park
Lake Snowden is a 675 acre education and recreation park, featuring the largest of four lakes which form the Margaret Creek Conservancy District.

The lake covers approximately 136 acres offering camping, boating, fishing, picnicking and swimming. The serene setting reveals natural beauty while maintaining the convenience of being just 5 miles from Athens, Ohio. The shelter houses, restroom facilities, beach, shoreline fishing holes, and fish hatchery make Lake Snowden a full-featured recreation park.

Lake Snowden was built for the Margaret Creek Conservancy District in 1968 with federal funds through the Farmer’s Home Administration and the Soil Conservation Service in an effort to control flooding. It opened to the public in 1972 and in 1998, Hocking College purchased Lake Snowden from Le-Ax Water District.
