State Rep. Jack Cera (D-Bellaire) today announced the release of $783,893 in state funds for renovations at three public restrooms at Jefferson Lake State Park in Jefferson County.

“Jefferson Lake State Park is a treasured camping getaway utilized by many residents in my district,” stated Cera.  “It’s important that its’ facilities receive regular maintenance so that it can be enjoyed for many years to come.”

The total cost of the project is $783,893, with $200,000 being funded by the Division of Parks & Watercraft, for upgrades to six total public park restrooms across the state. The three restrooms being replaced at Jefferson Lake State Park were built in 1950 and 1978 and are in constant need of repairs. The project will demolish the old restrooms and will replace them with more efficient two-user vault restrooms.

Jefferson Lake State Park is a quiet, out-of-way camping park secluded in South East Ohio. Families come to experience the relaxing atmosphere by boating, hunting, fishing, swimming and picnicking. The park also includes hiking trails for biking, horseback riding, and walking as well as multiple ballfields used by a variety of local teams, including Edison Local Schools. 

The project is scheduled for completion by July 31, 2017.
