St. Clair Township has two beautiful 18 hole golf courses; Beaver Meadows Golf Course and Turkana Golf Club. Turkana Golf Club also offers condominium living.

Beaver Creek State Park is located in St. Clair Township in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains; it is one of Ohio’s most scenic parks. The park includes Little Beaver Creek, a state and national wild and scenic river, and acres of forest wilderness. The rich history of the area invites visitors to explore Gaston’s Mill, pioneer village and abandoned canal locks. There are approximately sixteen miles of hiking trails which take visitors to historic canal locks and through a steep walled gorge, 23 miles of bridle trails provided for horseback riding and two mountain biking technical trails. There are 50 non-electric sites for camping. Little Beaver Creek offers one of the most enjoyable canoe trips in the state of Ohio. While you are there you can visit the Wildlife Education Center where live animals and over 300 animal mounts are on display. The park is open to the public May through September and is host to over 7,000 visitors annually.

Nearby is the Ohio River, which is ten minutes from St. Clair Township for those who enjoy water sports.

Included in our growth is the creation of the Calcutta Community Park. The park became a reality due to the township obtaining a Clean Ohio Conservation Fund grant. The township in conjunction with the local Rotary Club has finalized the construction to preserve and restore natural features that contribute to quality of life and the state’s heritage. The park also includes a memoriam to all branches of the military.
