Paint Creek State Park is a 5,652-acre state park located in the Highland and Ross counties of the U.S. state of Ohio. The park contains several campgrounds and a lake, created by the damming of Paint Creek. Paint Creek State Park was created in 1974.

The Highlands Sanctuary, a private nature preserve, is contiguous with the park.

The underlying geology of the park is limestone, and significant limestone bluffs may be seen -- and hiked to -- just below the dam. The bluffs feature an outstanding colony of the smooth cliffbrake, Pellaea glabella.
