Sasquatch enjoying Salt Fork!


  • Salt Fork State Park is the largest park in Ohio, and it is the home of Ohio’s largest creature.
  • Sasquatch – aka Bigfoot, Yeti, Ohio Grassman – is 6-8 feet tall, with footprints 13-17 inches long, and is rumored to have lived in Ohio since the mid-1700’s.
  • With over 36 sightings reported since the mid-1980’s, Salt Fork is known as the Bigfoot Capital of Ohio. There’s even a park map that shows the areas of the sightings.
  • Since 2005, Salt Fork has annually hosted the world’s longest running Bigfoot conference, as well as Bigfoot Night Hikes and Bigfoot Adventure Weekends.
  • The park’s annual Creature Weekend is dedicated to Cryptozoology, the study of hidden animals like Bigfoot that have yet to be identified by science or are thought to be extinct.
  • Several TV specials about Sasquatch have been filmed at Salt Fork.
  • It is no surprise that in 2012 Salt Fork State Park was named one of USA Today’s Top Ten “Squatchiest” Places!
