Back in September of 2016, my son had a school picnic at Salt Fork State Park, in Southeastern Ohio. It was a gorgeous drive and a memorable trip. Southern Ohio is stunning! Rolling hills, vast meadows, and misty valleys are pictures straight out of a calendar. I was pretty excited when we drove by a bobcat. The sun had just started to rise, and I caught a glimpse of him just standing on the side of the road. It was pretty cool, especially since I had never seen one in the wild. (I wasn’t quick enough to snap a picture of it, though.)
Salt Fork State Park is one of the largest state parks in Ohio, spanning over 20,000 acres of land and water. They have a golf course, miles of hiking and bridle trails, a beautiful beach, the Stone House Museum, and so much more! To read my Visitor’s Guide, click here.
My favorite part of Salt Fork was the Stone House Museum. Stone House is the ancestral home of the original owner of the land that now encompasses Salt Fork State Park. For more information about it and to see more pictures, click here.
This sign was hanging up in the museum and I thought it was interesting.
After leaving the park, we drove into Cambridge and ate at Cracker Barrel. It was one of the best Cracker Barrel’s I’ve ever visited! The staff was friendly, our waitress was top notch, and the food was amazing! 🙂
It was a really great day! 🙂
