Apple Valley Lake is 511 acres and averages 30 feet deep. It is amazingly crystal clear. Most lakes in central and northeast Ohio average only 5-10ft. We have a full-service marina with gas docks, three beaches, two clubhouses, a gorgeous 18 hole public golf course (adjacent - Apple Valley golf course not owned by Apple valley), basketball, fitness center, indoor pool, outdoor pool, and more! The community amenities are private (restricted to property owners only). The common grounds are kept pristine! You will never be disappointed.
Apple Valley Lake is 95% speed zone with no hp limit on inboard boats and a 300hp on outboard with a 25hp on a trolling motor. The fishing is wonderful! There are two bass tournaments every year as well as catch and release tournaments on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Apple Valley Lake vacant lots start at $3,500 and have sold for over $400,000. It all depends on your view! Homes start at as low as $85,000 and have sold over $1,000,000. Again, depends on your view/location. The community is private, so you must own property in Apple Valley Lake in order to use any of the amenities.
This is an awesome retirement location, too-- including a fish club, singers, cooking club, red hatters, dance clubs, and more! There is something for everyone! If you didn't think it could get any better than this, the annual association dues are super low – Under$ 250 annually!
