Lake Milton Ski Club
The Lake Milton Ski Club provides the opportunity to meet and associate with other people in Lake Milton interested in water skiing and wakeboarding. The club is family oriented and promotes safe water skiing. Skiers of all skill levels are welcomed. Many of the members have young children who are just learning the sport with the emphasis on having fun.
Ski Course - In 2005, the club was able to locate a slalom ski course in the south section of the lake, just south of the Ellsworth Road Bridge . Club members worked for many years with the Lake Milton State Park to select the location and make the dream come true. The Lake Milton Ski Club paid all costs to install the course and continues to maintain the course.
Since the ski course is located on an Ohio State Park lake, the course is open to the public. However, to provide calm water and protection, the ski course was located in a small bay with a "No Wake Zone" status. In order to ski in the area, a special events permit from the Ohio State Parks is required to lift the no wake zone for the slalom skiers. The Lake Milton Ski Club has a permit which covers all club members. People not wishing to join the club and utilize the course must obtain their own permit from the Lake Milton Park office where there will be a nominal handling fee and proof of $1 million liability insurance. Skiers will be required to have a copy of their permit and proof of insurance on the boat when using the ski course.
Membership - New members are always welcome.
The Lake Milton Ski Club is affiliated with USA Water Ski. Each ski club member must also join USA Water Ski
In 2001, the Lake Milton Association began developing a walking/bike path around Lake Milton. The Village of Craig Beach installed sidewalks in 2001 and the Association, in conjunction with the Lake Milton State Park, developed a walking/biking path in the park area on the northeast side of the Lake. The Association received a grant from the Recycling Division of Mahoning County. In addition, money was raised through golf outings at Olde Dutch Mill Golf Course and many smaller fundraisers. A dedication for the section of the path was held during the summer of 2007 and immediately following the dedication of the Mahoning Avenue Area, a dedication of the Milton Avenue park was named in honor of former State Senator Harry Meschel. Lake Milton State park also received a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources along with numerous contributions towards the construction of the walkways.
Many hours have been donated by Association members towards the accomplishment of this project. Dedication of this walkway was held in May, 2003.
The second phase of the walkway is along Mahoning Avenue. It includes a boardwalk, walkway, and fishing/docking pier with a gazebo. This phase was also made possible by grants from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Recycling Division of Mahoning County. In addition, money has been raised through a golf outing at Olde Dutch Mill Golf Course and many smaller fundraisers.
