A little-fished, hard-to-find, high-quality bass lake. One of a number of lakes impounded as a watershed project on the upper Hocking River watershed, Oakthorpe Lake covers 41 acres and has a primitive boat ramp. Thick lily pads cover the shallow northern end, but there are open pockets and an open deep channel that runs through the center of the growth. Key species: Largemouth bass, redear, sunfish, crappie.

Park on the south side of the lake. Be ready to walk up a steep dam on a skinny trail through tall weeds. There is very thin lily pad cover to the west of the cement overflow. The crappie and bluegill fishing was fast and heavy with very good size fish. This little lake is a little known gem. P.S. Along with a good amount of fish, there is also a healthy tick population waiting for you as you walk in and out.
