Beautiful but questionable design.

We stayed down at the "lake" spots which are not on the lake but quite above it. Our first site was #19, we were even hesitant to park our 23ft camper in it, but we did and then realized that as soon as we try to get in or out of the camper, it was a steep drop down 5ft. All the sites around this…

Great place to camp

A friend and I were just traveling through Ohio and needed a place to stay. This is an awesome choice for anyone who likes seclusion or needs a quick place to stay, only 15$ a night and three other campsites occupied, we had a great time. Very peaceful and clean, you can tell they take good care of…

Nice but a bit cramped

The park is nice and well maintained. The loop we were in was super cramped. There is not much space between you and the next site. Very little cell reception which was just fine for us! Pit toilets and a few flushing ones next to the showers.

Camping!

Creek adjacent, hiking trail nearby, small lake... the only down side was the sound of the water treatment thingy across the creek. (Stayed at the non-electric sites down below the lake. Nice and spacious.)

Good Camp

Tent camped on a non-electric site in early May.  Great campground.  Clean, relatively quiet, and great bathrooms.  The camp sites are right off one of the main trails in the park, so very easy to get out for a hike.

Rustic and simple

I LOVE camping here, unlike a lot of camp grounds they're actually within the woods so you feel like you're actually part of the forest and the nature. It's a simple place, they have showers and restrooms. The hiking trails are scenic and pretty and the lake while not overly big, is clean and great…

Small Site, Good Hiking

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…

Small Campsite

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…

A Great Place to Getaway

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…

Love this place!

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…

Such a blast!

Our very first time camping and we couldn’t had picked a better place! Lots of scenery! Walked 8 miles with our dog and still have so much left to see. Will definitely be going back! Very quiet and clean campgrounds.

Nice park off the beaten path

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…

Hocking Hills, OH, winter camping

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…
