Approximately 4000 acres of natural beauty, this recreation area is known for its fishing. Originally, the facility was the private estate of former Cincinnati Reds owner and appliance manufacturer Powel Crosley. Still in use is a single lane steel bridge that Crosley built for his small Crosley cars.
Crosley Fish and Wildlife Area gets its name from Powell Crosley, the man who originally owned the property. Powell Crosley, maker of the Crosley automobile, purchased the land in 1931 and maintained it as a private hunting and fishing area. The DFW purchased the land in 1958.
