About the Monroe County Chamber of Commerce
Monroe County, Ohio is located in southeastern Ohio, south of interstate 70 and east of interstate 77. Located centrally between Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio, Monroe County provides an environment where your business can flourish with an outstanding quality of life. The eastern boundary of the county is the Ohio River that provides an unsurpassed, low-cost avenue for transportation of bulk commodities. This location puts the county within a 12- hour drive of most of the US, east of the Mississippi and the eastern provinces of Canada.
The 18,000 acres of Wayne National Forest provide excellent hunting, fishing and camping opportunities. Monroe Lake and the adjacent 1,300-acre Monroe Wildlife Area are just right for the outdoorsman. Boaters enjoy a 40-mile stretch of the Ohio River. The Little Muskingum River and Sunfish Creek are an anglers’ delight. Beautiful parks and picnic areas dot the countryside. Public and private golf courses, tennis courts and swimming pools are also available throughout the County.
