Fairfield County sits just on the edge of Ohio's Appalachian region While the once-glaciated northern portion of the county is fairly flat, as one travels south along US 33 one can easily recognize the foothills of a mountainous region beginning around the village of Carroll Although not officially part of the state or federal definition of Appalachia, certain areas of Fairfield County—particularly south of US 22—bear a distinctly Appalachian feel in both physical geography and demographics

The scenic Hocking Hills region lies immediately to the south, mostly in neighboring Hocking County A large portion of Buckeye Lake is located in northeastern Fairfield County

Mudhouse Mansion, an alleged haunted house, was located in the county
