I like the idea of this.
Ohio State Rep. Mike Loychik(R) proposed House Bill 261 which aims to change the name of Ohio’s Mosquito Lake State Park to Donald J. Trump State Park.
The name change is much needed!
Who would want to visit a park named after Mosquitos?
I wouldn’t, the name makes me want to avoid the place but Donald J. Trump Stae Park sounds like a place I would definitely visit.
The park is located in Trumbull County and according to Rep. Loychik, 55% of the county voted for Trump.

Mosquito Lake in northeast Ohio would be renamed to honor Trump, who carried the state in 2020 with more votes than any candidate there in history. https://t.co/rnGyzWzj2k

Check out what The Hill had to share about the park’s potential name change:
An Ohio state lawmaker this week introduced legislation to rename a local park after former President Trump.
State Rep. Mike Loychik (R) introduced House Bill 261 on Monday with the support of his party, noting that the legislation if passed will serve to “honor the commitment and dedication that our 45th President, Donald J. Trump, bestowed upon the great people of Trumbull County,” according to a statement.
Under the bill, Ohio’s Mosquito Lake State Park will be renamed Donald J. Trump State Park, in an effort to celebrate the former president who led in the state in both the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections. It would also allocate $150,000 toward changing the signs in the park, the bill noted.
“I witnessed the unprecedented and astounding support that President Trump received from my constituents across the 63rd District and Mosquito Lake State Park,” Loychik said of his proposal.
He also noted that Trump received a record number of votes in the state for any presidential candidate.

Dems were definitely triggered about the name change, take a look:
The next time I'm in Ohio, I know exactly where to go take a dump. 😉

Ohio Republicans want to rename Mosquito Lake State Park to Donald J Trump State Park. I can say right now that’s a state park I will never visit.

I’m sure if Democrats named the park it would be named after Karl Marx.
The Washington Examiner had more to add to the story:
Some Ohio Republicans who think former President Donald Trump hit it out of the park want to honor him by renaming a state park after him.
State Rep. Mike Loychik, the primary sponsor of House Bill 261, also known as Rename Mosquito Lake State Park to Donald J. Trump State Park, said the bill would celebrate the historic support Trump accrued among residents in the neighborhood surrounding the Cortland, Ohio, park.
“I witnessed the unprecedented and astounding support that President Trump received from my constituents across the 63rd District and Mosquito Lake State Park,” Loychik said of the proposal. “My legislation to Rename Mosquito Lake State Park is meant to honor the commitment and dedication that our 45th president, Donald J. Trump, bestowed upon the great people of Trumbull County.”
Loychik originally announced his intent to propose the legislation, co-sponsored by six additional members of the Ohio House, in March, and was met with criticism from Democratic counterparts.
This wouldn’t be the first state park named after Trump.
In the 1990s President Trump donated land to the state of New York and the park was named after him.
The park has since been neglected and not taken care of by the state and now their looking to even change it’s name.
