The city of columbus does not run it. Loup power offers this as a free recreational area and you can't expect them to maintain something that they are providing us for free. We just need better quality people that use the area. I too have found broken beer bottles in the water at the swimming area but i feel that's to be expected. What more do you want from somewhere that provides free electrical camping and a place to play in the water.
The water quality is extremely poor. The swimming area is extremely small and not taken care of at that. The excuse for a beach had beer bottles all over and dead animals here and there. The City of Columbus really needs to invest some time into cleaning this place up....On the upside the camping area wasn't too terrible.
