Welcome to Clendening Marina

As the Marina Manager, I personally would like to invite you to experience the pristine shoreline, excellent fishing and quiet evenings that Clendening Lake has to offer. As the largest undeveloped lake in Ohio, Clendening offers a true back-to-nature experience, far from the crowds, yet close to home. It’s a great place for boating, fishing, paddlesports hiking, and many more outdoor activities.

Clendening Lake Marina and Campground offers boat rentals, daily and seasonal docking, bait and tackle, ethanol-free fuel sales, repair services, snacks and supplies, and overnight accommodations including a campground, beautiful log cabins, and a clean, comfortable motel.
