Forked Run State Park features forested hills, a picturesque lake, and the lazy Ohio River. Located in the heart of Appalachia, colorful history, riverboats, scenic vistas, and abundant wildlife give the park its rural charm. The main campground is situated on the ridges overlooking the scenic valley of Forked Run Lake. This nicely shaded campground offers 80 campsites with 50-amp electric sites along with 71 non-electric sites. Two Rent-A-Camp units consisting of a tent, dining fly, cooler, cookstove, and other equipment can be rented during the summer months by reservation. Three camper cabins are available for nightly rental. The park features a disc golf course as well as a miniature golf course. Volleyball, horseshoes, and tetherball can be enjoyed in day-use areas of the park.
