Carroll County's Beautiful Lakes

Carroll County is home to two Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District Lakes; Atwood and Leesville Lakes. The lakes were built in the late 1930’s for flood control. Both lakes are owned and operated by the District which is also responsible for managing conservation and recreational activities.

With easy access from major highways, the lake has two marinas that offer boat sales and service, public boat launches, boat rentals, bait and licenses and food service. The west end of the lake is home to the Atwood Lake Park where vacationers will find swimming, camping, hiking, cabin rentals and a host of outdoor activities.
