COLUMBUS, OH – The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) and the City of Columbus are teaming up to improve boating and fishing access at Hoover Reservoir. Improvements will be made to the existing Oxbow Road access area in Delaware County, the only boater access on the northern portion of Hoover Reservoir.

The access area currently consists of a primitive gravel launch ramp and parking lot. The scheduled improvements include: widening the access road; installing a sidewalk; paving the road and parking lot; creating car-only and car-trailer parking lots; installing a concrete boat ramp with a floating dock; and providing new LED lighting street lamps.
