Mackey Ford Wildlife Area

The 200-acre wildlife area is located within Pickaway County. The area can be reached from the north and south by U.S. Route 23, from the west via State Route 762 and from the east by Duvall/Harrisburg-Fairfield Roads. A parking lot is located to the south of State Route 762 and just east of the Scioto River.

The purpose of the Mackey Ford Wildlife Area is to provide excellent opportunities for hunters, fishermen, and wildlife enthusiasts, along with quality habitat for migratory waterfowl. 

The wetlands north of State Route 762 provide good opportunities for waterfowl hunting. Day-use-only waterfowl blinds are permitted throughout the wildlife area, except along the border with the Scioto River. There are also squirrel, dove, and deer hunting opportunities on the area. The Scioto River offers fishing opportunities. Trapping opportunities for furbearers such as mink and muskrat exist within the wetlands north of State Route 762.
