Rocky Fork State Park is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts in southwest Ohio. Unlimited horsepower boating allows for excellent skiing on the 2,080-acre lake which also provides catches of bass, muskellunge and walleye for skilled fishermen. Nearby, a scenic gorge, dolomite caves and natural wetlands add to the popularity of this recreation area.Nestled in Highland County, Rocky Fork State Park derives its name from the stream flowing through the park. Present-day Rocky Fork Creek flows through an ancient valley which was blocked by glacial ice more than 12,000 years ago. The stream reversed direction and rapidly cut a 75-foot gorge, as seen nearby today. The native wildflower, Sullivantia, which is extremely rare in Ohio, blooms in the gorge.
