Funk Bottoms Wildlife Area

This 1,498-acre wildlife area in northeastern Ohio is in portions of Wayne and Ashland counties. State Route 95, running east-west, goes through the middle of the area, from Blachleyville (east), through Funk and Lake Fork (west). 

A great variety of nesting and migrant birds occur on the area.  Of particular interest is the spring migration of waterfowl (23 species) and shorebirds (28 species). 

Waterfowl hunting is popular on the wildlife area, especially when flooding occurs from the Mohicanville Dam. Small game species are pursued in the uplands and in the bottomland during dry seasons.  Furbearer hunting and trapping provide many hours of recreational opportunity.  Fishing, frog hunting, and turtle hunting occur primarily in the deeper creeks and ditches.

The observation deck provides good opportunities to view wildlife, especially during flood events and bird migrations.
