About this Location

Beach City Wildlife Area, 1,912 acres, is in northeastern Ohio in Tuscarawas County. OH-93, running north-south, forms the east boundary, and US-250 is at the north end of the area. The area lies on the edge of the unglaciated Appalachian Plateau region of Ohio. Elevations vary from 948 feet to 1,200 feet above sea level. Much of the wildlife area is permanently or seasonally flooded.

The purchase of 1,537 acres of land was completed in the late 1930s by the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District; the completion of the dam created a permanent reservoir of approximately 420 acres. The Division of Wildlife purchased an additional 375 acres on the southwest end of the area in the late 1960s. The entire area is open to public outdoor recreation. The primary purpose of the area is flood control, with fishing, hunting, and trapping as recreational benefits.
