Rose Lake — Hocking Hills State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The 2 million visitors a year at Hocking Hills State Park do not come to fish 17-acre Rose Lake; they come to view the magnificent sandstone cliffs, scenic waterfalls, and caves that make this place one of Ohio’s crown jewels. Rose Lake was originally intended as and serves as the park’s water source. But like so may other beautiful things around here, so too is Rose Lake.

A deep, cool, and clear lake, it is as inviting to fish as it is to view. Looking as close to a wilderness lake as we have in Ohio, Rose Lake sits among the forest with not a residence or building in sight. Fallen trees provide shoreline cover; pine, beech, and hemlock provide the shade."

This is a really lovely park with a big lake for fishing. It's a chance to see a lot of wildlife such as waterfowl. There are waterfalls, forests, bridges, and a lot of interesting rock formations. There's also a lot of stone steps that are fairly easy to go up. There's also a few caves to explore. It can be a bit crowded on weekends with nice weather, especially the caves, but it's still one of my favorite parks in Ohio and in the U.S.
