Shelby, Ohio

Welcome to Shelby, Ohio

What to do in Shelby

When you’re ready to work off all those calories, you can walk, jog, or bike on the .9-mile asphalt path at Reservoir 2, just off Mickey Rd. This is a great place for bird watching. Canadian geese and ducks love the reservoir, and you’ll find even more feathered friends near the shoreline or singing in the surrounding trees. Feel like doing a little angling? Bring your fishing license – this reservoir is stocked with a large variety of fish from largemouth and smallmouth bass to catfish and crappie.
