Portage Lakes Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 17 photos

Go Jump in a Lake!

Spent the weekend with some friends on the Portage Lakes in Akron, Ohio. It's a beautiful spot and a great way to spend a summer. Wish I could live on a lake but for now I'll live vicariously through my friends....

Lovely Homes

There are some lovely homes on this lake. Is this one yours? I enjoyed looking at it every day from across the pond!

A Strange Tradition

Airfare to Akron: $49. Pedicure: $25. Our traditional four-corner foot shot complete with Toilet Paper: PRICELESS!

    Thanks for posting VT's first and only Portage Lakes page. We used to go to lakes in Wisconsin every summer, but I didn't know there were such nice ones in Ohio.
