Fall Paddle Salt Fork Lake/campout

 Laurel Lake is still shut down, so here's an option to go to beautiful Salt Fork Lake!

Salt Fork State Park, encompassing the woodlands and fields flanking Salt Fork Reservoir. As Ohio's largest state park, Salt Fork boasts recreational facilities to suit nearly every taste.  Hiking trails!  Salt Fork contains a blend of rich woodlands and rolling meadows.  Should be prime fall foliage viewing!

General Land, acres17229       Water, acres2952

We will "officially" kayak on Saturday, but there will people going up on Friday as well.  Same schedule for outings on lake as would be for Laurel Lake outing, and keeping the shortened daylight in mind.

Campsites at State Park are $26.00 a night, 6 persons per site. Showers, toilets, electric. Price per is dependent on how many go.

What to bring:  All camping, kayaking equipment for day and evening, safety gear, waterproof gear, extra changes of clothes, (it's going to be getting colder!  Plan accordingly).  Hopefully, we won't have rain, but plan for it.  Better over prepared than not enough. 

Saturday night is share meal.

Some of us will leave Friday at 10 a.m.  Meet first rest area past King's Island (71 north).

    Thanks Ivy for putting this trip together ! I loved the fall colors, the hikes and paddling, even learned how to geo cache & use a round loom. Awesome campfires. Awesome company.
