Have been coming here for years. One of the largest and prettiest of Ohio ' s state parks. Beautiful lake, beautiful campground and trails. If your an outdoor person you can't go wrong. Good job guys and gals.

Nice and clean with "modern restrooms" which seems to be a luxury in Ohio. They also have putt putt, concession, and showers.

Many miles of trails for all ages to enjoy. My favorite is the white trail it's approximately 12 miles long and passes the lake and gorgeous hollows. Usually see deer every time we go out too.

Salt Fork sits in an area named the "Sasquatch Triangle" as it has been a hotbed of activity. The park itself has a primitive campground area named "Bigfoot Ridge" and the park hosts a few cryptid conventions yearly.
