I launched at the boat ramp that is just North of the marina at Deer Creek State Park. After I launched I proceeded North. Deer Creek Lake is an unlimited horse power lake, however immediately north of the boat ramp it is a no wake zone. I proceeded up the inlet of the lake and was actually able to make it quite far before the water was to shallow.

It was a nice peaceful paddle as it was a weekday and early in the morning. If you are a bird watcher you won't be disappointed. They have some nesting sites set up on the lake that are home to some Ospreys and I spotted quite a few Kingfishers and herons. While the scenery isn't as nice as Paint Creek Lake this is still a nice paddle.




Kayak's must be registered in the state of Ohio


Take RTE 207 North from Chillicothe and follow signs for Deer Creek State Park Marina and boat ramp (Approx 20 miles out of Chillicothe).
