The site was developed as an estate in the early 1800s by land agent Lemuel Punderson, one of the area's first settlers. After summer cottages, a hotel and Tudor-style lodge were constructed, the Ohio Division of Wildlife purchased the land and lakein 1948, then transferred control to the Division of Parks and Recreation for development as a state park in 1951.
