“Camping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We camped out here earlier in the summer and there was hardly anyone there. That wasn't a negative though because it gave us more privacy which is never a bad thing. The camp grounds were nice I only wish there was a little more shade available. The best thing about Beech Fork is there pool. The pool is surprisingly big and really cheap its 3 bucks per person and its not far from where you camp. They also have a little store on site in case you forget something.

“Camping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We camped a couple of years ago, before they did all the upgrades and it is a fantastic place to stay with your family. We tent camped and had a nice site right on the lake with a bath house and laundry 50' away and a small store right on the grounds with most anything you may have forgotten. Great swimming pool and playgrounds. Was just an awesome place and a great adventure.

“Peaceful, beautiful lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

This quiet lake (restricted to fishing boat motors) is perfect for a more leisurely exploration of a beautiful area. The lake is deep and perfect for fishing and swimming, there is also a nice beach area. The park rents pontoon/house boats, fishing boats, and canoes.

“Kids love camping here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We camp here several times a year and this makes the kids feel like they are on vacation the whole summer. Most sites are big and open so you don't feel like youn are on top or your neighbor. They have daily activities and sometimes bring in groups to teach everyone, such as birds of prey or folk stories tellers. They a swimming pool on site, fishing dock or at your campsite and swim beach near the marina.
