Forked Run (pronounced "fork-ed") is in another time. It's away from cell phones and urban sprawl. The park offers few creature comforts. Basic electricity, latrines, old and perpetually wet shower houses. Yet where can you watch a huge barge drift down the Ohio River? Or catch sight of bald eagles? The park is lovingly maintained. I have never come across a more caring and dedicated staff. On a holiday, they drove to each site and made sure campers knew a big storm was approaching. Forget the game boys, kids here splash and swim at an idyllic beach, play frisbee golf, cornhole and rent boats for the lake. We bought delicious local tomatoes. It's unlikely there is anyplace to eat out, or even get groceries nearby. We needed gasoline, and found a BP about 30 minutes of semi-windy road with an ice cream stand that sold excellent cones, malts and food. The big warning is for big rigs. I don't know. Maybe there's a way to come in from the west or southwest, but OH 124 has hills and tight turns with narrow sections. Patience and sound equipment recommended. We pulled a popup (which we saw plenty of at camp area 2) and I held my breath on one occasion while sensing the Ohio River was "right there" and no guard rail. This is only a few miles, but care is needed along OH 124 from US 50. Drive it in the day. On the other hand, a very nice boat launch to the Ohio River is nearby, so skilled people do this all the time. Be wary of your GPS from Parkersburg. Take US 50 all the way to 124. We stayed only one day but will definitely return to hike and explore. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
