It rained a lot during the weekend we were here so our outdoor experiences were limited. The boat dock lost power so we could not rent a boat. There are plenty of places to fish. We appreciated that the kids could fish without worry of needing a license. There is a golf course which appeared hilly but pretty views. The... More

I came out to Salt Fork State Park with my son to check it out for future family vacations. We booked a room at the lodge but I also checked the campgrounds and cabin area. There is a place for every kind of person wanting an escape from RV camping, a resort lodge, cabins on the lake and a primitive... More

We stayed here the majority of last summer. The restaurant is amazing. Their loaded baked potato soup so so good not to mention they have the best fried pickles i've ever tried, we had every burger on the menu here which were all way above average. We stayed in both the cabins and the lodge. My preference was the lodge... More

A four seasons park with something for everyone. Fishing holes are everywhere, lots of boating possibilities, golf, beaches, hunting, snowmobile, bridle trails. During week days the crowds are thin and a forest experience with isolation and quietness is very possible. Historical stone house is open on most weekends. Also, Check out the auto tour for the heritage sites. A map... More

The cabins were clean and spacious. Great for a family of 4+. We went in the Spring and there were only a few cabins occupied, so it felt very secluded/isolated. Loved our stay!

This was not a good time of the year for visiting a park. The weather was cold and dreary--but I'm sure it would be very nice in the springtime with warm weather and some sunshine,

The lodge is absolutely beautiful overlooking a lake and swimming pool. Many things to do. The cabins are very nice and clean. Lots of things for a family or a couple to do right on the property of the park.

I live 5 minutes from Salt Fork State Park. Beautiful area, close to Cambridge, we will go to The Lodge for dinner and sometimes sunday lunch. They have a great outdoor pool and we will order a pizza (they have great pizza). Love to walk the trails and of course they have Bald Eagles in the area as well. Horse... More

Ohio's largest state park, to say there's something for everyone is no stretch. Salt Fork is one of the few state parks with an onsite lodge, and it's a great one, with excellent guest rooms, banquet facilities and dining options. As for the park, itself, the large lake is conducive to boating and fishing, and there's plenty of great hiking... More
