Camp Belden Wildlife Area

This 609-acre wildlife area in northeastern Ohio is in Lorain and Medina counties. The area lies on the west side of State Route 83, between the towns of Litchfield and Belden. Neff Road provides the north and west boundary.

The Camp Belden Wildlife Area is the first wildlife area in Ohio open only to youths (17 years old and younger) for hunting, trapping, and fishing. The young sportsmen and women must be accompanied by a licensed, non-hunting adult. Although the area is open to youths only for hunting, fishing, and trapping, it is open for everyone for other activities including hiking, bird watching, and nature photography.

Hunting of rabbits, doves, squirrels, deer, turkeys, and groundhogs is popular. Trapping furbearers and fishing the ponds are also favorite activities.

Parking lots have been constructed on State Route 83 and Neff Road for public use. A 3 1/2 -mile long hiking trail was developed by the Boy Scouts.
