Boating, Canoeing, Kayaking and Tubing

The Mohican-Loudonville area is known as the “Canoe Capital of Ohio” due to the concentration of paddling activities. The entire scenic river consists of 27 miles of flowing waters that provide a view of the forested valleys that comprise the Clear Fork Gorge State Nature Preserve, Mohican State Park and Mohican Memorial State Forest.

Nearby Pleasant Hill Lake, which is managed by Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, offers boating with no horsepower limits.


Anglers will enjoy good catches of largemouth bass, bluegill and white crappie in Mohican’s streams and at Pleasant Hill Lake. Wolf Creek offers excellent stream fishing for smallmouth bass. Mohican’s Clear Fork River is one of only three Ohio streams stocked with brown trout, another great fishing opportunity for visitors. A valid Ohio fishing license is required.
