According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 419 square miles (1,085 km²).416 square miles (1,078 km²) of it is land and 3 square miles (7 km²) of it is water. The total area is 0.63% water.[1]

The center of the county is 723 feet above sea level[2] and the rest of the county does not vary much from that. The land is the most level of any county in the state, and plats look like a checkerboard, with roads every mile. This level terrain resulted in Paulding County being entirely within the Great Black Swamp, unlike any other.

The county contains U.S. Routes 127, 24, and 30 (the Lincoln Highway). There are two major rivers, the Auglaize and the Maumee, as well as numerous small creeks. The largest bodies of water are manmade ponds.
