I recently went here for the first time in years. The park is just as nice as it was in the last, and their staff should be commended for the wonderful upkeep.

I had been to Beech Fork once before for trail hiking, which I must say, are pretty nice for themselves and I recommend checking those out, but this time I went for fishing. While it's pretty easy to get snagged up from the bank, those...More

Wife and I stopped here on our way back to Texas for 2 nights. The park is about 8 miles off the interstate down a narrow crooked smooth paved road. Trailering or a big rig is slow. You'll only drive 25-30mph at most. Once here...More

Beach is at the Marina but you cant camp there. Pool is on the outside of the campground. There is a walking path to it or you can ride bikes to it. There are no camp sites near the pool.

Yes there is beautiful scenery. Biking and hiking is awesome. Hiking trails along the lake is awesome. Also can rent kayaks which you can take up little streams for even more great views.

The Cabins are on top of a hill. They offer really great views of the area and are secluded from the rest of the park. If you want to go fishing, you have to drive to the bottom of the hill and go fishing at the boat launch.
