Lake Alma State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"There was a time when coal was king in Vinton County. That’s no longer true, at least not to the degree it once was. But its legacy will live on as long as Lake Alma State Park exists because coal—and coal profits—brought it into existence. Built in 1903 by the late C.K. Davis, a wealthy coal operator, Lake Alma was originally constructed as an amusement park. It boasted a large dance pavilion, outdoor theater, merry-go- round, and several other rides. It closed in 1910, at which time the City of Wellston bought the lake for a water supply. It’s now leased to the state and run as a park. Visitors today won’t find any carnival rides, but there’s still plenty to do."
