Last fall, we stopped briefly at the Shreve Lake Wildlife Area on our way to Killbuck Marsh. The wildlife area is a 228 acre site in Wayne County that’s named after its 63 acre lake.
The wildlife area features a parking area at the lake with a fishing pier and boat launch area (boats with electric motors only). A latrine is available in warm weather.
The lake is popular with fishermen and features largemouth bass, bluegills, and crappies. The lake is also a stopover point for migrating waterfowl in the spring and fall.
The wildlife area is located near the town of Shreve, OH. Take State Route 226 to S. Elyria Rd (T-149). Proceed north to Brown Rd. (T-316). Turn right (east) onto Brown Rd. and drive till you see the lake and parking area on your left.
