Deer Creek Lake was designed and built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Deer Creek Lake project was first authorized by the Flood Control Act of 1938, for the purpose of flood control, recreation, and fish and wildlife enhancement. Dam construction was begun in 1965 and completed in 1968. Deer Creek Lake Dam is a part of the larger comprehensive flood control plan for the Ohio River Basin, a system of dams that reduces flooding on the Scioto and Ohio Rivers by holding back flood water. The estimated monetary savings in flood damages that been prevented downstream of the dam has surpassed the construction cost of the dam. In addition to flood reduction, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers works in cooperation with Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Parks and Division of Wildlife to provide lakeside recreation and fish and wildlife management. Restrooms are located at the Project Office, Dam, ODNR Deer Creek State Park Campground, Harding Cabin Area, Marina, Beach, Picnic Areas, Lodge and Cabins, and the Golf course.
