Zepernick Wildlife Area

This 518-acre wildlife area lies four miles northwest of Hanoverton in western Columbiana County. Access is provided from State Route 172, which bisects the area. Three parking lots are situated on the area, along State Route 172. A boat launching ramp is located at the large parking lot near the lake. Four earthen fishing piers have been constructed along the lake’s south and west shorelines to increase shore fishing opportunities.

Hunting and fishing are the major recreational uses of the area. Sightseeing, hiking, nature study, and bird watching are other popular activities. Rabbit, pheasant, woodchuck, and raccoon hunting are productive in the area. The lake, two ponds, and marsh provide limited waterfowl hunting and many opportunities for trapping. Zepernick Lake is one of the better water areas for eastern chain pickerel and provides fair to good fishing for largemouth bass and most panfish species. The two ponds on the wildlife area provide angling for bluegill and largemouth bass.
