This is one of the better state campgrounds we have stayed in. I just wish is was closer to us, cause we would be camping a lot more. There is all different kind of sites there to pick from. The size of sites are nice, you don't feel packed in. It would be a beautiful place to be at in the fall for the leaves changing. Can't wait to go back.

Camping fee posted is for the Golden Buckeye Card (Seniors), 1/2 price. Unlike some other states there is no additional daily use fee at Ohio State Parks. Salt Fork is an "outdoor" park, meaning trails, lake, outdoor stuff. Sites are large and diverse. Camp area "C," has shade and is close to a bath house. It has no playground equipment but other areas do. There are a few full hookups but reservations for those are probably a necessity. The facilities are dated but are clean. The park is 6 miles from I-77 (exit 47), and it is a couple of more miles from the entrance to the campground. Roads are very good and most sites are level or might require a block. Watch for wildlife. There is a lodge with restaurant. There are convenience stores nearby and Cambridge is about 10 miles and has Walmart, supermarkets, chain restaurants, and other.

Interior roads and site pads paved. Nice green spacing between sites with a fire ring and picnic table. Some sites especially in A, C, and G loops have at least partial shade. Some three way hookup sites are located in loops F and G. Some walk-in sites are located in loops E, F, and G. Sites that are not three way hookup do not have water. There is a central water station near the campground entrance and a central dump station. There is much wildlife in the park, which is huge. Horse and hiking trails are available. Numerous beaches and marinas are available including one each for campground residents. A nice lodge and golf course are in the park. Grounds are kept up well. Nearby Cambridge has shopping and attractions. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

10++ campground as our families have been camping here since 1972 from tents to motorhomes. All have been great with unforgettable and amazing memories. The campground workers are great with frequent visits from the state park police making rounds. Great hiking trails, clean lake with good swimming. All around a hidden treasure.

The park is a LONG distance North of Rt. 22. The sites are very large and still provide privacy. The lawns were mowed and very attractive. The staff was EXCELLENT in processing the registration. Is it the best state park in Ohio? No. It is however, the best in the SE Ohio area. We would use this park again and had a great time. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

It is a long drive through the park to get to the camp sites. You don't want to have to run into town very often. Very clean and well cared for. We found a nice site with lots of shade that was close to several trails. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Very nice clean park. Has roomy sites. Not a whole lot of shade except in the G loop. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is a big park with lake access. Campsites were, for the most part, in the open, and unshaded. There are some at the edge of the woods which are a lot nicer (G25). Lots of people, many of which had no campground etiquette: i.e. washing dishes at the water station and leaving the garbage from the dishes on the ground. Also walking right through your camp to the point I ran into a guy while walking out the door of our camper. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We found this park to be a first class facility. The grass was mowed throughout the park, sites are level for the most part and it is the only Ohio State Park we have ever camped in where you could step out the door of your camper onto grass, not mud! I don't know how the park people manage to preserve the grass at the sides of the paved parking pads, but they do it at this park. Our only negative is that the park has only 20 sites which cannot be reserved. We arrived after the office closed, so we had to choose a non-reservable site. Not a problem since the park was only perhaps 5% occupied. We will definitely camp here again. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Good stop over or weekend park. Plenty of activities (hiking, biking, golf, horses, boating) to keep active. No TV reception or Wi-Fi, and come well stocked because the nearest ‘anything’ is at least 15 miles. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Sites were large and level, camp was kept clean. Very few sites (10%) with full hoookups, most all were electric only. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

As with most state parks in Ohio, the lots are pretty ample. We stayed in our hybrid travel trailer on a full service lot along a tree line but overlooking the lake. The lake has about 18B branches to it, so there are tons of nice lots. We much prefer roomy lots with maturity and character and despise parking lots of side by side campers with tiny trees. KOA's are not our favorite for lots. Shower houses were clean with hot water and pressure. Had privacy to get un/dressed. The dedicated toilet houses were closer but not quite as nice, but convenient. Not really too many activities in the campground per se, but lots to do around (boating, fishing, hiking, etc.) as its located in a nice state park. All roads and spots we saw are paved. Fire ring and nice picnic table in every spot. We'll camp here again for sure. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This is the largest Ohio State Park. The recreational opportunities are vast and varied. The campground is large and the sites are very nice. However, the restroom and show house facilities are showing their age. No amount of scrubbing will make them look clean. This park needs to model West Branch and upgrade their campground facilities.

Sites are very spacious and level. Campground was clean. Playground equipment is dated, but the kids had fun (7,5 and 3). Beach was quiet (fair amount of bird droppings). Campground is off the beaten path, no road noise. Staff was friendly. Store stocked all the necessities. Nice activities for the kids. Lots of trails. All in all another fabulous Ohio State Park.

Fishing but not a lot else to do. Nearest town of any size is 25+ miles. Very pretty with lots of wildlife and birds. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

The third Ohio state park we have stayed at and the third we have been very pleased with. We stayed here with a group and will definitely go back on our own. Excellent facilities, wonderful trails. Clean and well kept. Sites are paved although not perfectly level. There are approximately 20 full hookup sites in the park, the rest are electric only. Shower houses are immaculate and have plenty of capacity, although there is not one in every loop. Rate paid does not reflect the Golden Buckeye discount (50% weekdays and 10% weekends). Watch the campground speed limit of 20 mph - it's vigorously enforced We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Motorhome.Undo
