During our road trip to Sugarcreek Ohio, we stopped by at the rest stop by Tappan Lake, the place is called the Seven Ranges. It's a beautiful park to stop by, rest a little , and enjoy the beautiful view. When we stopped by on this place last year, it was clean but this time, there was geese poop everywhere.
We went to the Tappan Lake Resort sometime in Novemeber last year. The resort was on the other side of the lake and it was a beautiful place3 with lots of things for kids to do.
It would be fun to have a boat because you can tour the whole lake in no time. We've seen a lot of people enjoying their boat ride.
Our kids are just happy to see the lake. We have lakes nearby Weirton but not as big as the Tappan Lake. My husband told us that when he was a kid, his late brother used to have a boat and he would take him every summer time and ride along the Ohio rive and it was a lot of fun!
I think if my kids have their swim suit with them, they might have tempted to swim.
The main Tappan Lake Park is located between Cadiz and Uhrichsville, Ohio. Tappan Lake is great for camping, swimming, boating, fishing and hiking. There are over 500 campsites with swimming beach, concession stand, vacation cabins, camper cabins. There is a free Wi-Fi internet access at the Activity Center and Vacation Cabins. There is also a trail that connects the park with the Tappan Wetlands, which has been designated as a watchable wildlife area
I love that the fee is only $5 per vehicle which is pretty cheap. Granted that it should be free since it is a state park but they do provide life guards and other services so five bucks is nothing.
These two did not want to leave. They enjoyed skipping rocks on the water and watched the wave hit the rocks.
We stayed there for about ten to fifteen minutes, it wasn't really enough for the kids to get their full fix on the lake but we still have a long ways to drive back so we kind of forced them to leave lol.
Just so the kids will remember our trips and family bonding, pictures are always a great way to preserve memories so having photos every time we got to do something is a must for us.
Maybe next time when we come back to this place, it is a bit cleaner so we won't be grossed out walking around. Those geese really leave a lot of ,mess in parks.
You should send a picture of the seven ranges sign to Sewah Studios! I visited them in Marietta and they love getting pictures of their signs. You can tell it was made by them by the leather like background! Post it on their FB :) They'll love it. https://www.facebook.com/sewahstudios/ReplyDelete
What a beautiful park to stop for a break! It's so pretty and the kids look like they are having fun skipping rocks. Too bad about the geese poop! Maybe next time it won't be so bad.ReplyDelete
This looks like a lot of fun! I don't live too far from Ohio but haven't done a lot of sightseeing there - I'll have to change that!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a place for my whole family. I think my husband would spend all of his time at the lake, the kids swimming and me on the hiking trails! This is a perfect trip idea!ReplyDelete
Looks like the perfect place to take a break. The kids look like they are having a blast. And the view is pretty gorgeous!ReplyDelete

what a great and relaxing visit! I would love to check this place out some day because anywhere near a lake is an awesome experience (there's nothing quite like the waterfront view : )ReplyDelete
This is indeed a gorgeous place to stop and visit if you are in the area. I love the plaque that explains the history of the area too. Family photos are so important and should always be taken at new places. Thanks for sharing your amazing family time even if it was short.ReplyDelete
