Brush Creek Wildlife Area

This rugged, 4,131-acre wildlife area lies six miles southeast of Salineville in northern Jefferson County. Access to the area is provided from County Road 55, which is reached from State Route 164 at Monroeville. Several township roads provide direct access to the area from County Road 55.

Hunting is the major recreational use of the area. Two tracts of land totaling 783 acres were purchased in partnership with the National Wild Turkey Federation to provide Ohio’s sportsmen and women with quality habitat for additional turkey hunting opportunities.

Bluegills, suckers, bullheads, and a few bass are found in the lower portions of Brush Creek. Small ponds contain largemouth bass and bluegills.

Cottontail rabbit, ruffed grouse, gray squirrel, and fox squirrel are the principal game species. White-tailed deer, groundhog, and all furbearers common to the region, including beaver, are found on the area. Live-trapped wild turkeys from southern Ohio were released on this area in 1970.


County and township roads provide good access to most of the wildlife area. Several parking lots are situated throughout the area.
