Deer Creek Reservoir was built in 1954 as Alliance's primary drinking water supply. This 300-acre lake surrounded by forest features an accessible fishing pier, a boat ramp for electric motors only, picnic tables and grills, and a trailhead for the 4.46-mile Mahoning Valley Trail. View the boating and fishing guide here for a complete list of regulations. Formally dedicated in 1954, the man-made Deer Creek Reservoir serves as the primary water source for the nearby City of Alliance. Created by an earthen dam and 200-foot long spillway at the intersection of Deer Creek and Berlin Reservoir, the reservoir is part of a 37-mile watershed containing over one million gallons of water. Surrounded by nearly 1,000 acres of forested land, the 300-acre Deer Creek Reservoir serves as a recreational resource for northeastern Stark County. Bald eagles, osprey, and migrating waterfowl are commonly observed at the reservoir. White-tailed deer and coyote can be spotted in forested areas surrounding the reservoir. Picnic areas, an accessible fishing pier, and gravel boat launch are available for public use.
