Beech Fork State Park offers some of the best recreational opportunities in West Virginia’s southwestern region. Visitors to this 3,144-acre park can hike in the hills, watch birds, fish or take a boat out on Beech Fork Lake.
3:00pm- Fishing with the Naturalist! Meet the Naturalist at the boat launch area before the fishing contest to practice before the contest starts. You can also ask questions and advice if you’d like, and the Naturalist will show you one of the easiest and best fishing knots you can tie! YPP

6:30pm Tie Dye! Pick up a t-shirt at the camp store (or bring your own) and meet the Naturalist behind the headquarters building to tie dye your shirt. You can also bring bandanas, shoes, towels, hats, etc.! Beech Fork shirts are in the store for $8 plus tax. If you bring your own items the activity costs $3 dollars to cover the cost of materials.
