Candlewood Lake

The historic village of Mt. Gilead dates back to 1832. Once the hunting grounds of the Shawnee tribe, it is a thriving community today with many businesses and an active tourism industry. Mt. Gilead State Park and the World War I Victory Memorial Shaft draw in many visitors each year along with the nearby Amish farms and shops. Residents of Mt. Gilead can enjoy the rural setting of Morrow County while being only a short drive from Columbus.

 Those looking to call Mt. Gilead home have some wonderful locations to choose from. Candlewood Lake is a gated community that sits on 1,500 scenic acres. Located on the North side of Mt. Gilead, it resembles a private state park. It’s easy to find just off of State Route 19.

 Candlewood Lake Real Estate

 Candlewood Lake has both full time real estate and vacation spots available with sites dedicated to single family homes as well as mobile homes. All lots are wooded and surround the 250 acre lake. The waters are stream fed and serve as the heart of this charming community.

 Over 140 acres are reserved as parks and green spaces. The tree lined streets provide the perfect back drop for walking and biking. The lake offers fishing, boating, water skiing, and swimming. One can even take a pontoon ride along the shoreline with its scenic views.

 Started in the 1970’s, Candlewood Lake is now one of Ohio’s top gated communities. It is great for both relaxing and active lifestyles. The park areas provide beautiful settings in which one can picnic, observe nature, or simply relax. Those who are more active can enjoy all of the above mentioned recreational activities along with tennis, basketball and volleyball.


 Residents will find a large main pool along with a pool house and nearby kiddie pool. The children’s playground is found next to the volleyball court and beach. It includes a park style setting where parents can sit and watch them play. The lake is accessible from both the North and South boat launches. Rental docks are available for those who don’t have lakefront sites.

 Those who are searching for the small town feel of a rural community will enjoy Mt. Gilead and Candlewood Lake. With nearby attractions, plenty of activities, and a beautiful rural setting, this is ideal for families of all ages and sizes.
