Our History - Clay's Park

Celebrating Over 60 Years of Family Entertainment

Clay's Park Resort was the vision and dedicated work of our grandfather, Mr. Otis D. Clay. The property for the park was secured in 1945 through the purchase of several tracts of land just southwest of Canal Fulton, Ohio.

Plans were developed around Otis's vision, and work began in 1947. A complete "Family Fun Center" was the goal. The first task after clearing the land was to tap into the natural spring that fed another lake on the property.

Countless man hours were spent on crafting this wondrous vision, and on Memorial Day, 1948, Clay's Park officially opened its gates to hordes of eager and curious visitors. People came from miles around to take in the natural beauty and excitement generated by this new man-made wonder.

Our growth has allowed us not only to develop one of the finest RV Resorts in America, but also to utilize our outdoor stage and natural amphitheater for music lovers.


Our grandfather's vision has evolved into a variety of national festivals at Clay's Park. For many years Clay's Park has hosted thousands of people attending our many festivals and events.

Noteworthy festivals include The Yankee Peddler Festival, The Country Fest, Warrior Dash, The Ville Festival, and The Midwest Reggae Fest.
