Briarwood Sporting Club
Welcome to Briarwood, where we offer the discriminating outdoorsmen a relaxing natural environment to get away from it all. If you enjoy fishing, hunting, or simply enjoy surrounding yourself in a stunning natural setting than you have come to the right place.
Let Briarwood play host to leisurely and memorable days with friends, associates, and family. For over 40 years Briarwood has been a slice of wilderness in central Ohio, embracing a relaxed and casual atmosphere of soothing fresh water amid breathtaking vistas.
Ohio Fishing Opportunities
With a majestic landmass covered with numerous lakes and trout streams, Briarwood is considered to be the largest fishing resort east of the Mississippi. Our largest artesian springs forms the headwaters for Ohio’s only natural trout stream the Mad River. We offer some of the finest fishing in the country for Brook, Brown, Golden, and Rainbow varieties of world class trout.
With a 125 acres of lakes and streams our waters abound with 12 species of sport’s fish. Small and large mouth bass, bluegill, walleye, perch, tiger Muskie, and striper bass have all been meticulously stocked and managed to provide world class fishing opportunities.
Membership privileges include full access to our loafing lodge on the lower streams. This clubhouse offers a restop during a lively day of fishing. It has a kitchenette, half bath, and a wood burning buck stove. Create the perfect lure in our fly tying station or enjoy a refreshing breeze on our wrap around veranda.
If you want to experience Mother Nature at her best then come take a boat ride on one of Briarwood’s spectacular wilderness lakes.
Ohio Hunting Opportunities
Incredible fishing and magnificent scenery is just the beginning as Briarwood Sporting Club offers world class trophy whitetail hunts in the autumn. Some of the largest whitetails in the world can be seen here traversing the grounds. Hunts are available to both fishing club members and non-members so be sure to book early for the upcoming season.
Open range whitetail hunts and turkey hunts are also now available! Whitetail hunts are semi-guided, with a Briarwood staff member taking you to the stand and picking you up on your schedule. Our hunting areas will be pre-scouted with stand locations selected based on providing the hunter the best opportunity to be successful. Turkey hunts are 3 days (guided or semi-guided based on clients request). Hunters arrive on Sunday, hunt Monday through Wednesday and depart Thursday morning. Lodging (at Briarwood), meals, beverages and field prep of your animal are included.
Overnight accommodations include 4 rustic lodges, each overlooking their own lake and furnished with modern kitchens, stone fireplaces, wireless internet, satellite television, and large wooden decks complete with large outdoor grilling stations. Each distinct lodge has its own character and supplemental features.
Come see for yourself how serene wilderness combined with excellent fishing will make your visit to Briarwood the truly memorable experience of a lifetime. To become a member, make lodging reservations, or book a whitetail hunt please visit our website.
