Lake Hope was super crowded and the sites felt like they were literally on top of each other. It also was not super clear on which site was which. Our site was on a hill, but there were 2 sites, one at the bottom and one midway down so we had to ask. Luckily both were not booked and they let us use whichever we wanted, so we picked the bottom of the hill.
There were plenty of hiking trails and at the lake you can rent kayaks for the day!
We had a good time, but it was insanely crowded and the sites felt like they were on top of each other. Our site was a giant hill, so we had to sent up our tents right by our cars. Our fire ring also didn’t have a cooking grate on it.
We did enjoy getting to rent a boat for a few hours and enjoy the lake.
We love Wolf Run if you are just planning to chill at the campsite. Choose one of the “premium” sites for beautiful lakeside views! It’s pretty quiet and usually not busy.
If you are in to hiking, look elsewhere. There is a trail, but we have never been able to successfully follow it, as it doesn’t seem super clearly marked.
We got engaged on the lake view site in early fall and also spent Halloween weekend there! It definitely adds a spook factor if you are camping that time of year. We were the only ones tent camping that weekend!
The grounds were clean and fairly well maintained. There are shower facilities, potable water and vault toilets. Not certain about laundry facilities. Pine Lake is nice, but the beach is a bit small. Overall, this has been a lovely place to relax and decompress! Would certainly return again for another trip.
This campground offers awesome views for the sunsets/sunrises, trails on the property that leads to beautiful scenery in the heart of hocking hills. A pool to swim in if you want. They offer primitive camping as well for the more secluded camper. The staff are friendly and helpful. Mark, who lives on the campgrounds goes above and beyond expectations! Plenty of wildlife to see. This place brings you back to your roots of nature.
We have stayed here a couple of times in a tent and a class a motor home.
The campground is pretty secluded but beautiful rolling hills. While the site we stayed in with the motorhome was fairly level, sites are mostly small and tight on hilly terrain. That said, I would still recommend this as a nice weekend getaway
One of our visits was during hunting season and both the campground and the cabins were mostly being used by hunting parties.
This is also close enough in proximately to serve as an alternative camping area for visiting Hocking Hills
Stayed there 2 nights the last week of February. A beautiful area, and suggest camping there any season. Winter camping had the only water source in the men's bathroom. Dump station open for dumping but needed to use the fresh water tank to rinse using the outside shower hose.
There is so much to see there, but a lot of ice. The trails were good in most areas, but as you descend in the gorge areas it becomes ice covered. I would not go without ice cleats for the hiking boots.
There were only a few other campers there. Would try for a site further from the water treatment plant (adjacent to the pool) due to the sound of the motors running.
Free reserve ahead weekend backpacking campsites. All sites have 2 tent pads, a fire ring and firewood provided. Some have log seating and some do not. 2020 season was closed due to covid-19, still waiting to see if they will open for 2021.
