Simco Wildlife Area

Simco Wildlife Area lies in the southeastern corner of Coshocton County, approximately 3 miles south of the town of Coshocton.  Access to the area may be gained from State Route 83 and Township Road 276, which runs east-west through the area.

Deer and turkey hunting may be productive throughout the area. Grouse and rabbit hunting may be productive in the brush land areas. Good squirrel hunting may be encountered on most of the area. Simco Wildlife Area also presents good opportunities for trapping furbearers. The water impoundments have been stocked with bass, bluegill, and channel catfish.

Hunters, especially entering the area in the dark, should be aware of the numerous high walls on the area. Many types of rough terrain exist here and caution should be exercised.
