About Hambden Orchard Wildlife Area
This 842-acre wildlife area is in northeast Ohio, 2 miles south of Hambden on the east side of OH-608. Sisson Road provides access to the south boundary of the area.

Second growth hardwoods cover most of the area, interspersed with brushy coverts and former apple orchards. The topography is flat to gently rolling. There are two ponds, one less than 1/4 acre, the other nearly 2 acres.

Land for this wildlife area was purchased in 1956. It was named for the 225 acres of old apple orchards in the area. After purchase, Hambden Orchard Wildlife Area was managed primarily for cottontail rabbits and ring-necked pheasants. However, as the natural succession of vegetation has progressed, the habitat has become more suitable for white-tailed deer, woodcock, squirrel, and turkey.
