Factoid: Situated within the suburban Shenango Valley, Shenango River Lake provides an attractive setting for your enjoyment. Visitors choose to spend their day picnicking, camping, or enjoying nature’s beauty. History buffs will enjoy exploring the remnants of the Erie Extension Canal, sections of which are located on project property. The Erie Extension Canal played a key role in the economic development of Northwestern Pennsylvania. The well-preserved remains of Lock Number 10 are found in Sharpsville, approximately one-half mile down stream of the Shenango Dam. Other historic features include the Kidd’s Mill Covered Bridge.
