Interesting factoid: Salt Fork has often been referred to as the crown jewel of state parks. Initially proposed as a water source for Cambridge, the focus for Salt Fork Lake and the land around it shifted when state officials began to realize the potential for a recreation area on the site that is now Salt
Fork State Park. Starting in 1956, land was procured to build a reservoir to serve as an alternate source of water for Cambridge. But four years later, state officials were instead acquiring land to built Salt Fork State Park the largest of Ohios state parks with 17,229 acres of recreational facilities. Located in the unglaciated portion of Ohio, Salt Fork is said to have derived its name from a salt well used by Native Americans which is located in the southeast corner of the park.
