Oil and Gas Association touts collaboration with Muskingum Watershed


As fall sets in across Ohio, many Ohioans might be thinking about squeezing in one final getaway before the weather turns for good.

The good news is there are plenty of great vacation gems right here in Ohio, including the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District. The district features a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities, such as camping, cabin rentals, boating, boat rentals, fishing, hiking and hunting on more than 57,000 acres of land across eastern and southeastern Ohio.

Nearly 5 million visitors enjoy the benefits of the district’s lakes on an annual basis.

Robert Brundrett is president of the Ohio Oil & Gas Association.

Over the past decade, the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District has been executing a significant renovation plan to its campgrounds and marinas, which had no major redevelopments or upgrades since their construction over 50 years ago.

The first phases of improvements, to the tune of $130 million, helped construct six new campgrounds and renovate 13 existing camp areas. They are now wrapping up additional phases that include additional infrastructure improvements and amenities that will raise their investment to almost $200 million.
