Rocky Fork Lake in Ohio is open to boating, making it a fun location for water skiing, tubing and fishing for the bass and walleye that call the lake home. The area is also home to Rocky Fork State Park, where you can hike, camp, enjoy a picnic or a treat from the concession area before retreating to your campsite for the evening, or better yet, one of the local cabins available for rent.
