10 Reviews of Salt Fork State Park
Beautiful Park! Swimming pond is large and clean. One of the best I have be

Huge place. Close to several places to eat and entertainment.

Great Campground

Lots of great sites to pick from, lots of loops, shady sites , secluded sites, handicap sites and more. We go at least once a year for the Ohio Bigfoot Conference which draws people from all over the country. The bathrooms are good, the shower houses are good and the campground store has anything you may have forgotten. Friendly staff, hiking trails, boating and more. They have horse camping and trails further down the road and a primitive loop on Bigfoot Ridge. So much to see and do a weekend isn't long enough.

A Great Place for Some Family Camping

I took our popup camper here with the family for a weekend and had a great experience. The camp has lots of RV type spots with electric hookups. There are also several "primitive" spots available for tent camping. Reserving a spot is super easy with the park's online reservations.

The park has lots of activities including several nice hiking trails, a playground, late night movies for the kids on Saturdays in the summer, and a really great beach on the lake (with shower houses!) There is water available all throughout the campsite area at several faucets as well as bathrooms and a shower house, both of which were clean and in good working order.

I highly recommend this park for any kind of RV camping and will likely return in the future.

Campground give feelings of closeness to nature and rejuvenation of spirit

Salt Fork State Park of Ohio is for individual, couples or group camping. Salt Fork lake is natural spring fed water supply that fills this lake. Bring containers to put natural pure water in for home or camping supply. Trails that lead along shore line to old stone house built in early days of Ohio. Caves to be explored that are easy to access. Boating, fishing,hunting,swimming and a well appointed Salt Fork Lodge. Short drive to Cambridge, Ohio to enjoy local downtown.

clean park from what we could tell

we stayded here in jun of 2017 and it rained allmost the entire time but from what we could tell it was a very clean place we did get yo walk a few trails for abour 1 hr and see some wildlife and go yedi hunting haha but other than that we played games in the camper make the best of it we will be going back

Stopover

We drove to Salt Fork from North Carolina on our way to Maumee Bay State Park and the birding festival at Magee March. It was just a quick overnighter, but we did take a little time to walk and bird. The campground was 80% empty, very quiet except for some late-night traffic on the county road nearby, loud pickup trucks. The park is well cared for but is showing its age. I noticed online that Ohio had set aside $88M for upgrades in 2016. It looks like they have not started yet. We stayed here again on the way home. It is a very good birding hotspot in the spring!

Something for everyone

We camp here several times a year. Nice trails, good fishing, clean pool, boat rental - always fun no matter the season

The right side of the fork

Dog park!! and right on the lake!! Found this by mistake on our way out, and the dogs loved it. Access to lake, a beach, well fenced. I would give Salt Fork SP extra stars for this one, especially if there were campsites co-located.

Camp ground is easily accessible being just 6 miles from I70, leaving the convenience of Cambridge and city amenities close by while allowing for great trails and solitude. Stayed in campground A, and the front end has little shade, but being here in autumn was perfect for lots of sunshine on site. Sites with trees for tree tents is minimal. Drinking fountains are dispersed fairly frequently throughout campground, but RV hookups with water were limited during my stay. Shower houses and comfort houses all have flushers and sinks.

TICK WARNING!!!! After a morning hike down wooded Trail, we spent A LONG TIME pulling ticks from dogs…even though the temps were in the 30's overnight and everyone was treated with flea & tick protection.

Fall colors

Salt Fork State Park is worth coming back to :) The weather is a bit chillier then last time and the campground very quiet. Seems to be mostly hunters set up in the C campsite area and a few in the A campsite near us.

The change of season brings a very different atmosphere to the park and the people staying in it. The facilities are still well maintained and the washer and dryer I’m pretty sure are older then me but they do the job. The park staff are very holiday minded and a cheerful group.

The Trailhead’s located throughout the area give you a good workout on the hilly terrain and offer some awesome fall scenery.

Deerasic across the road has a schedule of events and the water recreation though limited is still available.

First to Review
A little bit of everything!

Just driving in saw turkeys and "turkets":) and two 6 point bucks. You can hike, swim, boat, bike and horseback ride. Primitive tent camping all the way to upscale lodge stays. Electric camper hookups and shower house. In August there is "Deerassic Expo" event, right outside the front drive! Plus!! A lot of other smaller park "gems" nearby.
