Guided Tours
The Zaleski State Forest Sawmill is Ohio's only publicly owned and operated sawmill. It began operation in 1967. Most new commercial mills are using the latest technologies such as computer operation and laser calibration. For this reason, the "low-tech" approach taken at Zaleski gives the mill an almost historical significance. By no means however is the Zaleski Sawmill a museum-piece. It is an efficient functioning mill that turns out specialty orders for many public works projects. Additionally, demonstrations and training activities (for example, grading workshops) are held every year at Zaleski.

Lake Hope is where my two aunts, my sister, and I camp every year for atleast once a week during the summer. Its so peaceful, we love the nature center. No matter how many times weve been there it never fails to be awesome. Every Saturday night they have movie night at the ampitheather we always go and its not just for the popcorn and kool-aid! The wild life is also great Zaleski state park is a beautiful one. If you ever think about going dont hesitate to! Its a wonderful experience!!! <3
