Located in eastern Ohio, Barkcamp State Park's picturesque hills and lake is the perfect place to try an array of outdoor activities. The 1,005-acre park offers visitors the chance to camp surrounded by mature woodlands and rolling hills or spend the day exploring the rugged Appalachian region. Hand-powered and electric motors only on the lake. A bit of American history is preserved in the camp area. The Antique Barn was built in the 1800s by Solomon Bentley, an orchardman of renown. The barn is now home to summer naturalist activities and historical displays.A resurrected log cabin and other pioneer structures near the barn take visitors back to an even earlier era. A paved trail winds through the pioneer village, enters the adjoining mature woodlands and provides access to the Antique Barn. Interpretive signs are placed along the route explaining the cultural and natural history of the park.
