The Union City Dam provides visitors with the chance to enjoy a number of outdoor recreational opportunities. The different types of habitat and ecosystems that can be found at the reservoir provide hikers, bird watchers and the novice naturalist with a variety of flora and fauna to discover and enjoy.

Union City Dam is the perfect site for a picnic with family and friends. Visitors can relax in the quiet rural surroundings and enjoy the scenery and view of the dam. Picnic tables, grills, and restroom facilities are available for day use.

Hunting and Fishing
French Creek entices many fishermen to the project to test their skills against game such as northern pike, walleye and muskie. There is also an abundance of smallmouth bass and panfish in the creek and trout in many of the creek’s feeder streams. Hunting activities are open in non-developed areas of the Union City Dam unless posted otherwise.
