Winding through upland meadows and farm fields and bottomland forests, Floyds Fork empties into the Salt River, which flows another 25 miles until it drains into the Ohio River. The waterway serves as the uniting thread within The Parklands — each major park is named after one of its tributaries.
Floyds Fork provides paddling access at seven locations throughout The Parklands. These are great spots to launch a canoe or a kayak, or you can fish from the banks of the creek. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife stocks Floyds Fork with trout in the cooler months. Stockings occur in the Beckley Creek Park section of Floyds Fork.
