WOLF CREEK WILDLIFE AREA
Wolf Creek Wildlife Area is a 3,978-acre state wildlife area located 9 miles southwest of McConnelsville. The property is in Morgan county and a 10 minute drive from our campground.
HUNTING, TRAPPING, AND FISHING The best rabbit hunting may be found in reverting open fields adjacent to croplands or adjacent to woodlands with a shrubby understory. Oak-hickory stands and beech groves scattered throughout the area provide good squirrel hunting. Reverting old fields comprised of species such as hawthorn and wild crabapple with scattered pines, in combination with second growth hardwoods, provide excellent ruffed grouse and deer habitat. Waterfowl hunting is limited, but productive early in the season. Good populations of woodchuck and raccoon occur throughout the area. Muskrat and mink trapping is best along the main channel of Wolf Creek and in the larger ponds.
Fishing is a popular activity on the area. Wolf Creek and its tributaries produce smallmouth bass, rock bass, and suckers. Many small ponds ranging in size from one-half acre to over seven acres yield good catches of largemouth bass, bluegill, and channel catfish.

AEP RECREATIONAL AREA

The area is located five miles Northeast of McConnelsville, Ohio in Morgan, Muskingum and Noble counties.

There is an Equine Trail, and the Buckeye Trail within this multi-use area. Recreational User's permit required.
