The company-owned reservoir northeast of Toledo was created to provide water for production purposes at the containerboard mill. GP allows the public to use the reservoir for daytime recreation. Visitors use the site at their own risk and must comply with posted rules, including no hunting, littering, tobacco or alcohol usage or gas-powered boat motors. Pets are allowed on leashes and owners must clean up after them.
