Additional Information: One of AEP's best-known reclamation projects, ReCreation Land is a 34,500-acre area in Southeast Ohio that offers a wide assortment of recreational activities to the public, including camping, fishing, hunting, bike trails, and horseback riding.

AEP reclaimed this land, once strip-mined for its rich coal deposits, and turned it into a vibrant recreation area. Vigorous reclamation efforts involved planting 63 million trees, establishing over 350 lakes and ponds, and creating nearly 380 campsites.

The use of the land requires obtaining a free ReCreation Land permit. You can visit the AEP OHIO Website.
