About Griggs Reservoir
Griggs Reservoir is located in Franklin County, in central Ohio, just west of Columbus. US-33 parallels the lake on the east side and there is a public boat launch just south of the Fishinger Road intersection.
Griggs Reservoir is maintained and operated by the city of Columbus Division of Watershed Management as a source for municipal water supply. The dam was constructed on the Scioto River in 1904 creating a long narrow lake that runs north to south for approximately six miles, creating 387 surface acres of fishing water. The lake is generally clear, but is influenced heavily by rain events and can become very turbid. Depths can exceed 20 feet near the dam, but most of the reservoir is between 10- and 15- feet deep.
