Overview
Hocking Hills Reservoir locally nicknamed Rose Lake (sometimes called Fisherman's Lake) is located just outside of Old Man's Cave, in the Hocking Hills region of Hocking County, Ohio, United States. It is a part of the Hocking Hills State Park.

It is accessed via the crossing of the Old Man's Cave gorge and following the signs - about a 3 miles (4.8 km) hike. There is no direct road access, though a shortcut may be found via a trail from a primitive campground which borders the lake.

Hocking Hills reservoir is the approximate mid-point of a trail between Old Man's Cave and Cedar Falls. Specifically, it is found on the Upper Gorge Trail.
