Caesar Creek Lake

Caesar Creek's 2,830-acre lake provides flood protection as well as lots of recreational opportunities for fishing, boating, swimming, camping, horse-back riding, hiking, fossil-finding, hunting and more. The lake was created with an earth and rock fill dam in the 1970s and is co-managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and two non-profit organizations. Caesar Creek Lake is situated about 30 miles northeast of Cincinnati and 15 miles southeast of Dayton. It is located four miles east of Waynesville and two miles west of I-71 along State Route 73 in southwestern Ohio.


Caesar Creek Lake has an abundance of Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Bluegill, Black and White Crappie, Carp and Catfish throughout the lake. The Ohio Division of Wildlife monitors fish populations and water quality management. Extensive habitat work ensures the fishery will continue to be sustained by the natural expansion of the fish populations in streams and flooded ponds. In addition, Saugeye and Muskellunge are stocked annually.
