Towpath Trail Peace Park Rules and Regulations

second campers at the peace park

I'm in the front house by the 12' 6" RR bridge with a food service trailer with Towpath Trail Snack Shack in the front yard. Go to the lower driveway easement closest to the canal and you may park by the handicapped accessible Porta-Jon. In the event that you arrive and no one is available to meet & greet you, please feel free to set up camp in the field between the Ohio & Erie Canal and the lower driveway easement.

The Towpath Trail Peace Park is located where the Greenville Treaty Line intersects with the Ohio-Erie canal towpath trail just west of the village of Bolivar, Ohio. The Greenville Peace Treaty specifically refers to Fort Laurens and runs from Greenville, Ohio on the west side of the state to about a mile and a half to where the Sandy creek enters the Tuscarawas River and from there north to Cleveland, Ohio. Fort Laurens is located only 1.5 miles east of the Peace Park on the towpath trail and we encourage everyone to hike there to visit. The Canal Lands section of the towpath trail has been adopted by the Bolivar-Zoar Rotary club who does a great job of helping the Tuscarawas Parks and Recreation to maintain the trail from Fort Laurens to Route 800.


Here's a very well-produced video by the Ohio Historical Connection of the story of Fort Laurens that's only 20 minutes long. It is also the story of how Ohio became settled shortly after the American Revolution and became the 17th state admitted to the Union on March 1st, 1803

1st bicyclist Hipcampers

Ohio-Erie Canalway Towpath Trail bicyclists HipcampersRiding the Ohio-Erie Canalway Towpath Trail our first group of bicyclists decided on staying Sunday, June 29th, 2020 at the Towpath Trail Peace Park to rest up for their trip back to Akron, Ohio. Of course, our photobombing mascot Airbud had to get in the photo too. We enjoyed hosting our first group of cyclists and look forward to sharing our property with many more yet to arrive at our historic Tuscarawas county destination.

Peace Park Pet Flash
Black Squirrel

We love the abundant wildlife on our property and have sighted four species of squirrel including the black, grey, fox, and flying squirrels! We've decided to name our resident black squirrel "Flash" to honor  Kent State University, it's Alumni, and of course Superintendent Larry Wooddell and retired Davey Tree employee who introduced the black squirrel to Kent State in 1961. Kent State University has a Tuscarawas County Campus so it seems fitting that we adopt the black squirrel that lives in our front yard and name her Flash! We've even bought Flash a friendly-looking squirrel feeder who shares unsalted peanuts, sunflower seeds, and corn.
