As a result of its 2006 merger with the town of Kamiishizu (from Yoro District), and the town of Sunomata (from Anpachi District), the city consists of three disconnected regions, with Sunomata in the east, the original Ogaki in the center, and Kamiishizu in the southwest.

The main river flowing through the city is the Ibi River; however, the Nagara River forms the border between Ogaki and the neighboring cities of Gifu and Hashima.
