Egypt Valley Wildlife Area

Egypt Valley Wildlife Area is situated in the southeastern part of Ohio, in Belmont and Guernsey counties. The primary access to the area is Interstate 70 and State Route 800.

Over the last 70 years, approximately 80 percent of the acreage that comprises Egypt Valley Wildlife Area has been subject to surface mining. The last active mine was completed in 1998. Today all of the forests consist of second and third growth timber. Much of the land that was cleared is now in grassland or brushland and dotted with many small ponds and wetlands.

Egypt Valley Wildlife Area is popular for hunting, fishing, and other forms of wildlife recreation.  Many of the small ponds offer good fishing opportunities. Hiking, bird watching, photography, and sightseeing are also popular on the wildlife area.
