Factoid: Surrounded by the lush, green farmland of northern Ohio, the Michael J. Kirwan Dam provides miles of clean waters and scenic countryside for your enjoyment. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites you to visit the reservoir and experience the outdoor recreational opportunities that await you. The Kirwan Reservoir is an impoundment of the West Branch of the Mahoning River and is an ideal site to boat, camp, fish and enjoy year round outdoor activities. The reservoir and much of its surrounding lands are leased by the Corps of Engineers to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources as West Branch State Park. Visitors to the park will find numerous, well maintained facilities available for their enjoyment.

NOTICE: Many states are discouraging or banning movement of firewood to control spread of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Not bringing wood from home to your campsite and not taking unused wood you procure while camping home with you is recommended -- required in some states. Check the following website to learn more:
