Swimming

Go for a dip at the Mountain Fork Beach Area. The river winds throughout the park, meaning there are plenty of places to cool down. Many visitors also float the Mountain Fork river.

Amazing park with so many activities

Hiking in beautiful trails, kayaking in the mountain fork river, fishing and they even have a beach. They also have many cabins that are super comfortable. One of the most beautiful parks I have been to. It is also 10min drive from the Marina, where you can rent a boat or jet ski to enjoy the reservoir. Definitely worth the trip!!!
