Highlandtown Wildlife Area

This scenic 2,265-acre wildlife area lies in southern Columbiana County. It can be reached by State Route 164 from Lisbon and by State Route 39 from Salineville and Wellsville.

There are many good squirrel, rabbit, woodcock hunting opportunies on the area. There are also some good grouse, wild turkey, and deer hunting. Raccoon hunting and trapping are good throughout the area. Waterfowl hunting is productive on the lake and on the man-made and beaver ponds.

Public hunting is also available on 404 acres of Yellow Creek State Forest, situated in two tracts on the west and north sides of the wildlife area.

Fishing at Highlandtown Lake is excellent for bluegills and for bass less than 15 inches (15-inch minimum length limit). Fishing for crappies and yellow perch is also good. Several ponds supplement the largemouth bass and bluegill fishing opportunity available in the lake.

Parking sites are well distributed. Boat launching ramps and latrines (seasonal) are situated at two locations on the north side of Highlandtown Lake.
