Salt Fork State Park Ohio As Ohio's largest state park, Salt Fork State Park is sure to keep every attendee enter- tained with 17,229 acres of recreational facili- ties. The Salt Fork Lodge offers 148 guest rooms with private balconies or patios, and 53 cabins, with an adjacent 7,000-square-foot conference center. One of the advantages of the park is that groups can enjoy great views and team- building fun from the comfort and modern amenities of the lodge, which trails the shore of the state's biggest inland beach. Between sessions, attendees can take advantage of the heated pool, the hot tub, the tennis court, the golf course, volleyball courts, shuffleboard, boating and more. For those eager to delve into nature, the surrounding terrain encompasses 14 miles of leisurely hiking trails through meadows and woodland, as well as historic structures like the Kennedy Stone House, an 1800s home overlooking Sugar Tree Fork that is listed on the National Register of Historic Sites. The area is also the source of many Bigfoot sightings, drawing the attention of national broadcasts like "Finding Bigfoot" and the "The Today Show." Every year, the park hosts events like the Annual Bigfoot Conference and Creature Weekend, as well as monthly Bigfoot night hikes led by paranormal inves- tigators Alan and Jesse from "Fathom Frontiers." "We have a map of marked sightings that we give to guests," said Bobbi Taylor, sales man- ager at the park. "Even the local newspaper photographer and his wife had an encounter." For a bite to eat, groups can stop by Timber's Restaurant for a plate of grilled salmon or forest mushroom risotto. Visitors would be remiss not to try the signature local dessert: the Salt Fork Pretzel. To make this rich treat, a pastry chef stuffs a pretzel with cream cheese, deep-fries it with caramel and chocolate, and then tops it off with candied nuts, powdered sugar, cinnamon and vanilla ice cream. www.parks.ohiodnr.gov Courtesy Salt Fork State Park The Wildlife Lounge is open year-round at Salt Fork State Park.
