Welcome to the website for Caesar Creek State Park

Sponsored by the Nature Center Association of Caesar Creek

The mission of The Nature Center Association of Caesar Creek is to help people of all ages connect with wildlife and the natural environment through educational and recreational activities at Caesar Creek State Park.

Caesar Creek State Park is highlighted by clear blue waters, scattered woodlands, meadows, and steep ravines. The 3,741-acre park offers some of the finest outdoor recreation in southwest Ohio including camping, fishing, boating, hunting, swimming, trails for hiking, biking, and horses -- plus a nature center. ​There is always something to do, so check out the activities, special events, and volunteer pages.
