AEP ReCreation Land: Hunting & Fishing

The Adventure…

The AEP ReCreation Land, Ohio's largest privately owned recreation area, is over 30,000 acres of reclaimed surface mined land, available for use by the public for hunting, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, birding, horse back riding and a variety of other outdoor recreational pursuits. There are over 300 ponds on the property and miles of trails.
Hunting and fishing is available in designated "Public Hunting and Fishing Areas".

Hunting is very popular at the AEP ReCreation Land. While deer hunting is the most common type of hunting, the park is also a great place to hunt squirrel and turkey. Hunters need only an Ohio Hunting License and their ReCreation Land Visitor's Permit.

With more than 1,500 acres of water, ReCreation Land is a tremendously popular place for those who love to fish. There are over 350 ponds and lakes in the area. They are stocked periodically by the Ohio Division of Wildlife with many species of game fish. There is excellent bass and bluegill fishing, especially in lakes and ponds off the beaten path. The fishing is free; anglers need only an Ohio fishing license and their ReCreation Land Visitor's Permit.
