Welcome to The Village of Malta, Ohio


Malta, and the area surrounding this village, may be among the better kept secrets in Ohio. Although small in population, this area features a number of exciting attractions that provide wonderful opportunities for individuals and families to enjoy the great outdoors.

Malta is only about 15 miles away from one of the premier state parks in Ohio. As one of Ohio's resort parks, Burr Oak State Park offers a wide array of overnight accommodations with its lodge, cabins and campground. Burr Oak Lodge, overlooking the lake from the east, offers sixty guest rooms, five meeting rooms, a dining room, full-service lounge and a gift shop as well.


In addition, the park features thirty family cabins designed to sleep six individuals comfortably with kitchen and shower facilities. Facilities for lodge and cabin guests include a swimming beach, tennis courts, playground equipment, boat launch ramp and an indoor swimming pool.

Just a short drive from Malta and Morgan County, individuals can experience the largest wildlife conservation facility in North America. This facility is a place where African, Asian, and North American wildlife can roam freely. The Wilds exists in order to promote conservation through education and research programs to protect and manage wildlife resources. From May to October, visitors can take a bus on a guided tour through part of the facility.

We invite you to visit Malta and see for yourself!

Greg Hill,
Mayor of Malta
