Located 1.5 miles northwest of the intersection of OH-44 and I-76 on the south side of Sandy Lake Road.

One of the best examples of a kettle lake bog in Ohio containing carnivorous plants, tamarack, and a floating sphagnum mat. Triangle Lake Bog is one of the finest and least disturbed sphagnum kettle-hole bogs in Ohio. The vegetational zone surrounding this glacial kettle lake follows the classic pattern of boreal bogs. A floating sphagnum mat with swamp loosestrife, leatherleaf, and tamaracks surrounds the dark acidic waters of the bog lake.

Significant species found here include northern pitcher-plant, round-leaved sundew, leatherleaf, highbush blueberry, large cranberry, poison sumac, and catberry.
