Access the Hune Bridge Campground along the National Forest Covered Bridge Scenic Byway (S.R. 26) in Washington County. The campground is located across the historic Hune Covered Bridge. The campground has three camping sites just below the covered bridge on the Little Muskingum River. This campground is also a canoe access point and trailhead for a 5-mile hiking trail to the Rinard Covered Bridge. In 2016-2017, the campground was closed for a short period of time to make some much needed improvements: • Stream crossing into campground replaced • Camp site added • Vault toilet replaced • Road and camping spurs restored
This is a great drive in campsite perfect for family and friends to get into the woods for a bit.
Adorable little campground, with a historic covered bridge and lovely creek in the backyard. There are 4 campsites and a vault toilet that is relatively clean and well-stocked. This campground is just off Hwy 26, but far enough away from town that there isn’t much traffic.
Each site has a picnic table, fire ring, and lantern pole. No drinking water is available, but there are creeks all around, so come prepared with a water filter! The creeks are also great for fishing and float trips. No much privacy between sites but a good deal of shade, especially site #4 in the afternoon. Just down the road from the campground are a couple more dispersed sites, too. It is completely FREE, and you can stay for up to 14 days. There are a couple other small campgrounds in the area similar to this one, such as Lane Farm and Lamping Homestead, just off Hwy 26.
Within the national forest, you will find some historic covered bridges, churches, homes, general stores and quite a few hiking and horse trails and some nicely graded gravel back roads for cycling. This campground also serves as the local “take out” for the river. While the canoe launch was destroyed in a flood, it is possible to get kayaks, small boats, and canoes up the down the embankment. The town of Marietta is just 15 miles away, and has all the things you need.
First come, first served. No reservations available or even possible.
