Williamstown Lake


Williamstown Lake is a public 330 acre recreational lake and water reservoir in Grant County, Kentucky. It was created in 1955 by impounding the south fork of Grassy Creek. The lake officially opened for boating, fishing and swimming in 1957. Over 400 summer cottages and year-round homes line the close to 20 miles of shoreline. Residents and vacationers enjoy yearly events such as the Labor Day Boat Parade and Paddle Williamstown, among other festivities. At under 10 minutes from the Williamstown exit--which is about an hour south of Cincinnati and 50 minutes north of Lexington on I-75, Williamstown Lake is the best place in northern Kentucky to boat, ski, fish and show off your skill with personal water craft. There are two public self-service boat ramps on the lake. One on Summer Drive and one on Draper Drive. There is no charge and anyone can launch at these ramps. The two man docks on the lake are the Williamstown Marina and Ruby's Boat Dock. Both of these offer fuel and small convenience stores along with slip rentals and boat storage. At Ruby's Boat Dock you can rent pontoon boats and at the Williamstown Marina you can have pizza and subs delivered to your boat at their dock.
