Lake Loramie owns a distinct history. Originally constructed as a reservoir for the Miami and Erie Canal, a feeder canal connected the lake to the main canal. This helped keep the canal available for those using it for transportation from the Ohio River to Lake Erie. Originally constructed in 1824, Lake Loramie became a state park in 1949.

In addition to these three season activities, several winter activities invite visitors. Snowmobiling and sledding are cold weather activities that are open to patrons. This state park appeals to nature lovers throughout the year!

Boating remains the most popular water activity at Lake Loramie. The lake allows for boats with unlimited horsepower and offers a designated speed zone. In addition, water skiing is not allowed on the lake. Fishing and swimming also invite visitors to the water. A 600-foot beach allows for easy access for swimmers. For fishermen, the lake provides a good stock of walleye, crappie, catfish, and bass.
