North Bend State Park
Found among the Mid-Ohio Valley’s rolling hills, lakes and streams, North Bend State Park offers a multitude of recreational facilities in a beautiful pastoral setting. Named for the horseshoe curve of the North Fork of the Hughes River, this year-round park is lush with fishing streams, hiking trails and abundant wildlife. Located near Cairo and Harrisville, North Bend State Park is best known for the 72-mile North Bend Rail Trail, which follows an abandoned B&O Railroad corridor with several tunnels along the way. North Bend also offers special packages throughout the year. To see what is currently offered, click below on "Special Packages."
North Bend State Park’s Lodge sits atop a breezy ridge and overlooks the woodland river valley below. It has 29 guest rooms, a full-service restaurant, meeting space and conference rooms, and a gift shop stocked with souvenirs.
The park offers year-round rentals for its nine deluxe vacation cabins, some of which are pet-friendly. Constructed of solid cedar, the cabins have fireplaces, central heat and air, and are available in two, three and four bedrooms. The cabins are completely equipped for housekeeping with cooking utensils, dishes, linens, blankets, kitchens with modern appliances, and baths with built-in shower/tub units. Cabins must be rented for a minimum of one week during the summer season.
