Beech Fork State Park was officially opened in the winter of 1979 and offers 3,144 acres of some of the best recreation experience in the southwestern section of West Virginia. Beech Fork is located 12 miles south of Huntington and Barboursville and is just a short drive from Charleston, Cincinnati and Lexington. Developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the mid 1970's, Beech Fork Lake has owned up to its popularity for recreation boating, fishing and wildlife watching experiences.

The 275 site, deluxe campground features four distinctly different areas. Approximately 80 sites are lake front campsites. Old Orchard, a 49-site full hookup campground is equipped with water, sewer and 20-, 30-, or 50-amp electric service. It is open year-round. Moxley Branch, Four Coves, and Lakeview camping areas each are equipped with newly upgraded 20- or 30-amp electric service.

All campgrounds have full service bathhouses and restroom facilities-complete with coin operated laundry. Each campsite contains a grill and picnic table. Reservations may be made in sections of Old Orchard and Moxley Branch. There is limited playground equipment in the campgrounds as well as mooring posts along the lake sites. Closing of sites for winter season begins from October and November until there are 49-sites that remain open in the Old Orchard campground by November 15th. The forty-nine Old Orchard campsites are available with electric only in late November or earlier when the threat of hard freeze is forecast and continues through early March or later when the threat of hard freeze is over.
