Portage Lakes State Park-West Reservoir
Beginning Monday, April 27, Ohio State Parks will conduct a controlled burn on a small island located in the West Reservoir of Portage Lakes State Park. The island, less than an acre in size, is located at 600 State Mill Rd.
Last year, ODNR began the process of removing dead and decaying trees. The burn, which may last several days, will be conducted by certified ODNR fire management staff and will remove the woody debris that remains on the island.
It is the goal of ODNR to reclaim the West Reservoir Island as a natural habitat. Please direct any questions or concerns through the Wingfoot Lake Park Office located at 993 Goodyear Park Blvd. Mogadore, OH. 44260
ODNR ensures a balance between wise use and protection of our natural resources for the benefit of all. Visit the ODNR website at ohiodnr.gov.
