    Zaleski, Ohio

    Welcome to Zaleski State Forest, a gem tucked away in Ohio. This spot is perfect for those who love a good hike and a night under the stars. The campground is known for its scenic trails and natural beauty, making it a favorite among backpackers and nature lovers.

    One of the standout features here is the abundance of well-maintained trails. Whether you're a seasoned hiker or just starting out, you'll find something to enjoy. The South Loop, a 10.9-mile trek, is particularly popular. It offers a mix of challenging ups and downs, beautiful rock outcroppings, and even a pond. The trails are marked with orange blazes for the main path and white for the side trails, so navigation is straightforward.

    Camping here is a bit rustic but rewarding. There are three main camping areas, each equipped with latrines and access to well-water. Camp 2 is a favorite since it's roughly halfway along the South Loop, making it a convenient stop. Just remember to bring your own toilet paper and be prepared to share the space, as it can fill up quickly.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Fires are allowed, but you'll need to bring your own firewood. And while there are no electric hookups or showers, the natural setting more than makes up for it. Plus, the lack of modern amenities adds to the charm and adventure.

    For those interested in local history, the area has some cool spots like the Moonville Tunnel. And if you're looking for a post-hike treat, the Lake Hope Dining Lodge offers a fantastic Sunday brunch.

    So pack your gear, grab a map, and get ready to explore Zaleski State Forest. It's a place where you can truly disconnect and immerse yourself in nature.
