Plan a Trip to Wingfoot Lake State Park

Check out the hidden gem I have for you…Wingfoot Lake State Park!

Wingfoot Lake is a HUGE park (over 700 acres) located just a short drive from Akron in Suffield Ohio, and it has about everything you could ask for in a park.

Wingfoot Lake State Park Playground

A HUGE playground with two play structures that have various slides, ladders, rope chains, monkey bars, rock walls, multiple climbing structures, bridges, tunnels, telephone tubes (that really work) and a small sandbox.

My children spent a long time running and playing on the equipment.  I joined in on the fun for a while and then sat on a nearby bench and enjoyed watching them play.

Wingfoot Lake Overlooking the Goodyear Blimp Hanger

The park also has lots of green space, picnic tables, benches, swings and shade.  One of our favorite spots was the swing that overlooks the lake.  It’s a picturesque and view and extremely relaxing.  If you time your trip right and you can even watch the Goodyear Blimp leaving from the hanger on the other side of the lake.

Paved Walking Path with Covered Bridge

After swinging for a while, we took a stroll on the paved walking trail over covered bridges, past boat docks, picnic shelters and throughout the entire park.

Remember to bring along your sports equipment because the park has ball fields, basketball and volleyball courts, badminton, horseshoe pits, bocce ball, frisbee/disc golf and even a miniature golf course!

Putt Putt Golf Course at Wingfoot Lake Park

There is a small charge to play putt putt golf, but the prices were very reasonable ($5 Ages 11 and Older, $3 Ages 3 – 10, FREE Ages 2 and under).  We didn’t have time to play while we there, but we plan to during our next visit.

As you can tell there is just about every amenity available at Wingfoot Lake Park.

    My husband and I go here about 3 times a week. They even have bikes to rent for 5.00 per hour. They also have Kayaks for rent at 10.00 an hour. The smaller pavilions are 50.00 and are perfect for small gatherings of about 60 people.

    Interested in having a wedding reception at one of the pavilions. Do we have to out by 9:00 pm or is it later for wedding receptions? Thank you

    Would like to rent the big covered pavilion for Sept. 21 (sat.) About 60-70 people. Would this be available on that date, and what is the cost?
    Thank you

    Just this past Sunday in June we were there to attend a wedding reception. The bride said to rent the pavilion, which is REALLY nice with doors you can open or close on the side of the building – $250. They had the place for all day I think. The park is really well kept and the bathrooms are nice indoor facilities.

      It would be beautiful to have a wedding reception there. What a great price to rent the pavilion for the entire day. Especially with so much to do at the park. It was be a great options for family reunions and graduation parties too!

      Donna,

      Your best bet is to contact Wingfoot Lake directly. Based on my experience there is no fee to go to the park. They do have picnic shelters, I believe you can rent. It’s really a beautiful area, I’m sure everyone would enjoy it.
