Updates planned for Salt Fork State Park
Ohio Department of Natural Resources -- Director James Zehringer this week announced capital improvements at Salt Fork State Park, where campsites will be upgraded and the Sugartree Marina will be renovated. "Salt Fork is the largest of Ohio's state parks and offers so many different opportunities for anyone that enjoys the outdoors," said Director Zehringer. "The feedback we are receiving has been exceptional, and I was eager to get to Salt Fork this morning to share the great news with some of our most enthusiastic visitors." The projects will be funded from the $88.5 million in capital funds that was recently awarded to Ohio's state parks in the most recent capital budget, the agency said. The department will re-deck the marina's dock and renovate the concession building, ODNR said. In addition, 20 of the park's campsites were recently upgraded with full service water and sewer. ODNR said the capital improvement funding will be used to improve state park facilities and lodges across the state. Bathrooms and campsites will be updated or replaced through much of the system.
