Rocky Fork Lake
Let The Dickey Group Realtors take you on a video tour of the Rocky Fork Lake Area.
We offer a wonderful way to visit and experience the feel of the neighborhood you may call your home.
Rocky Fork State Park nestled 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.
Rocky Fork became a state park in 1950 and the first water spilled over the dam in April 1953. Since that summer the lake has become a favorite of fishermen and water sport enthusiasts.
Motors of unlimited horsepower are permitted. There are six boat launch ramps around the lake and over 600 rental docks. Professional boat racing is enjoyed every September as boats from all over the country gather for Thunder in the Hills.
Anglers will enjoy excellent catches of bass, bluegill, crappie, saugeye, channel catfish, and flathead catfish up to 40 pounds.
Beach lovers of all ages enjoy two large public beaches located on the north and south sides of the lake.
Picnic areas are located on the north and east shores in wooded areas overlooking some of the most beautiful spots on the lake.
The family-friendly campground offers 230 campsites welcoming both trailers and tents. Campers can enjoy volleyball courts, playgrounds, miniature golf, tetherball, a basketball court, horseshoe pits, a nature center and disc golf course. A launch ramp and tie-ups are provided for campers with boats.
A 1.5 mile hiking trail takes visitors through cool woodlands, scenic gorges and moist wetlands. A short trail near the campground features an observation station for excellent bird watching. Rocky Fork provides habitat for numerous waterfowl, songbirds, red fox, white-tailed deer, and the majestic bald eagle.
Nearby Paint Creek and Pike Lake state parks offer excellent camping, fishing and hiking opportunities within a short drive.
