Although our cabin is not located on the water, there is plenty within a short ATV or car ride. One of the first bodies of water that we found after taking possession of the cabin was in the spring of 2009 when we came across Lamping Homestead, a small park within the Wayne National Forest. We really enjoyed this park and returned there more than once to fish and hike. Anytime I can go fishing or out on a boat, that is relaxing to me. The Lamping Homestead Lake is not very big, but is beautiful, and the thing I remember most every time I think of this lake, is the reflection of the shoreline onto the lake.
A short ATV ride from the cabin is the second body of water that we came across, The Little Muskingum River. There is a covered bridge at the crossing of the road we use and the river.
There are numerous different species of fish that can be caught in the river and some are pretty impressive. One of the first fish I saw from the base of the covered bridge was a Gar, there are Bass, both Large and Smallmouth, and the biggest of all the species is the "Muskie". We have not caught any Muskie, but my boys did see a fisherman pull one out of the river just a few weeks back while on our last visit while on their ATVs.
Some of the best pictures that we have from our trips to the cabin have come from this covered bridge area. The bridge sits in a valley and the views are beautiful from this area. We were once down at the bridge and it was very foggy and we caught a very cool picture.
