Ashland County is in Northwest Ohio. When you look at a map of Northwest Ohio, it appears that all roads lead to Ashland County. Ashland County is a beautiful part of Ohio, somewhat rural in nature, with many recreational amenities. The area surrounding the Mohican Forest, Pleasant Hill Lake, Mifflin and Loudenville is popular with those who enjoy the outdoors, camping, boating and recreation. It is a more than pleasant area, with rolling hills, farms and small towns. Located approx. 35 miles from Vermillion, Ohio on Lake Erie, it is close enough to the lake that many travel there on weekends. Ashland County also enjoys a Amish Community, that adds to the flavor of the county.
