 First I want to thank everyone that attended the Berlin Lake Association meeting last night. At that meeting you heard from Colonel Lloyd of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,state that the first step in attaining a slower water drawdown was to gain approval for a temporary deviation from the Water Control Plan. This is a first step, but a very important step in gaining approval for a higher water level in Berlin Lake throughout the summer recreational season. At the request of the BLA, the Pittsburgh District has worked very hard to provide us with this opportunity. It is now up to us to provide the positive feedback needed to gain approval for this Deviation Request. Please respond to the email or postal address provided below stating that you are in favor of this deviation and that you would like to see this put in place on a permanent  basis. We also ask for your assistance in gaining support for this proposal from your Federal, State and
Local elected officials.  Their positive feedback could provide the extra leverage needed to get this proposal approved. At this time, we need to generate as much positive support as possible for this request to show our commitment to a more
logical system of Berlin Lake Water Management.  
Thank you for your support,
Berlin Lake Association Officers and Directors

 Berlin Lake, Mill Creek Campground and Boat Ramp 2018 Season
BERLIN LAKE, Deerfield, Ohio – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District is informing campers, fishermen and boaters that the Mill Creek Recreational Area campground and boat ramp will be delayed in opening until June 29. The campground and boat ramp area is opening later than normal due to an on-going construction project that will have all roads to the campground closed at the normal start of the season. The construction project, which broke ground March 14, is part of a multi-year effort to make repairs to critical infrastructure that services the campground, failure of which caused a shutdown and partial opening of the campground during the 2017 camping season. The district recognizes the inconvenience this delay may cause to the public; however, we look forward to providing the best camping experience for our visitors. The day-use area adjacent to the Mill Creek campground area  will remain open. For more information about Berlin Lake, contact the Project Office at (330) 547-3801.
