The Teter Creek Hunting and Fishing Area is situated along Route 92, south of Nestorville and North of Belington in Barbour County. The hunting area spreads across an expanse of 137 acres. The terrain has an average elevation of 1,800 feet and features gently sloping oak and hickory forests (making the area attractive to squirrels). Its abandoned farmlands and mixed conifer plantations offer hunters abundant choices of environment. Native animals include raccoon, deer, squirrels, and turkeys.

Families can also fish in the 35-acre lake that was built in 1958 and has an average depth of 11 feet. The lake is surrounded by a gravel access road and has a boat ramp to accommodate electric crafts (the only kinds of boats allowed on the lake). A footpath around most of the body of water makes fishing from the bank available as well.

The area offers great trout fishing opportunities. From March through May, the lake is stocked with trout twice a week. Fish are also added twice in October and once in February. Adult channel catfish are introduced every June.

Twenty tent/trailer sites with pit toilets are available by securing a permit from the area manager. Picnic tables make visits more enjoyable and convenient, and there is a handicapped-accessible fishing trail for physically-challenged guests.
