About Rocky Fork State Park

See all hotspots at Rocky Fork State Park

Rocky Fork State Park nestled in 1,384 acres in Highland County derives its name from the stream flowing through the park. This stream, winding over dolomite limestone, has eroded spectacular gorges and caves which we can enjoy today.

Present-day Rocky Fork Creek flows through an ancient valley. Blocked by glacial ice more than 12,000 years ago, the stream reversed direction and rapidly cut the 75-foot gorge seen today. Caves in the region formed as rainwater, trickling through the limestone, dissolved the bedrock. Dolomite limestone is particularly vulnerable to this type of weathering. Sullivantia, extremely rare in Ohio, blooms in the gorge. The small white flowers can be seen from the moist cliff face in mid-summer. Other wildflowers include wild geranium, jewelweed, yarrow, and Queen Anne’s lace.

Rocky Fork provides habitats for numerous waterfowl, songbirds, raccoons, skunks, red foxes, and white-tailed deer. The wetlands in the park are home to the green frog, bullfrog, opossum, and muskrat.
