About 25 miles east of Cincinnati, OH is a park called East Fork Lake State Park.
In the park is a clearcut field in the shape of a rectangle that seems very out of place:
Toward the NE end of the field, there is an old paved access road that spans the field from east to west. The access road isn't strange in and of itself, but at either end, there are concrete pads that extend uphill for no particular reason.
Notice that the west end also has that strange runway/taxiway-like area. It looks like it has taxiway markings and hold-short lines.
Does anyone have any idea why this rectangular field was originally cleared? Or what that access road with the seemingly useless uphill pads is for? Or what the (apparently newer) runway/taxiway area is for?
