We camped with a group from our church for the weekend. This was our first time here. The campground was very nice and well maintained. Bath house was quite clean for a campground bathroom. The trails close to the campground, however, were poorly maintained. The...More

we enjoy our time on Salt Fork lake. We have been going to Salt Fork for 45 years! Beautiful water, scenery too. A great place for families with kids, or couples looking for a romantic drive through the park!

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.

Our family of 11 people used the pool July 2, 2017. The water was sparkling clean. Enjoyed the towels. Plenty of comfortable places to sit in the sun or shade. Staff very nice and helpful.

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.
