Mohawk Dam

About this Location

Mohawk Dam is approximately 15 miles west of Coshocton, Ohio and 25 miles east of Mount Vernon, Ohio. Access to the dam is via US-36 (which connects Mount Vernon and Coshocton), then OH-715 which travels directly across the crest of the dam. This is a dry dam — which means there is no permanent pool; however, water is present when impounded during flood control operations. The Walhonding River is popular for canoeing and fishing. Picnicking and camping facilities are available along the river. Roscoe Village, a restored and historical canal town, is located near Coshocton.
