State Route 604 (SR 604) is an east–west state highway in north central Ohio. The western terminus of SR 604 is at a T-intersection with US 42 in Jackson Township approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) southwest of West Salem. Its eastern terminus is at the intersection that doubles as the southern split of the concurrency of SR 94 and SR 585 in Chippewa Township nearly 1.5 miles (2.4 km) southeast of Rittman.

Created in the late 1930s, this primarily rural route traverses the northeastern corner of Ashland County and the northern tier of Wayne County. State Route 604 passes through one incorporated community along its path, Congress, where it meets SR 539.
