About this Location

Swine Creek Reservation is a 412-acre park located in the southeast corner of Middlefield Township. Situated in the countryside among Amish farms, the park’s cultural and natural setting make it a very popular destination.

Swine Creek Reservation was once part of a 1,200-acre hunting preserve belonging to Windsor Ford of Mesopotamia. In 1977 he sold Geauga Park District 268 acres that contained a sugar bush, a pond, and a lodge. Additional acres were added along Swine Creek and the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad corridor.
