The cabin was built around 1930 for Scippo Creek Camp. The Cliff and Golda "Goldie" Miller' purchased the property in 1935 and announced that it would be called Gold Cliff Park. The Chateau was said to have 9 rooms for guest, a tavern and a restaurant. Within the next year they had built the first concrete swimming pool in Pickaway County. Soon came the skating rink and other games and attractions. It was common to have bands playing into the late evening as guest enjoyed the leisure so close to home. Many were already familiar with the history of the park and Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts often had events near the primitive camping sites.
In 1935 it was announced that the new owners planned to install a new concrete swimming pool. It was the first one in Pickaway County and became a very popular meeting place in the midcentury.
One of the original experiences in motorcycling, Gypsy Tours are gatherings of riders from all over the country converging on a single destination. The tour brought together like-minded rider to enjoy the camaraderie of motorcycling. It was held in locations of particular beauty, historic significance or significance to the sport. Gold Cliff was the site from the 1930's to the 1950's and many pictures are in the D.A. Farrow Harley Davidson Museum in Sunbury, Ohio.
The skating rink was very popular for decades. Many people have great memories of it. Unfortunately it burned down in 1978.
