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.

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…

  • Bath house and water source, dump station just beyond the building.

About This Campground

On a quiet back road and across an old fieldstone bridge lies West Hill Park, where the West River widens to form a large, natural pool. The park and its many services and activities, including a swimming beach, accessible playground, nature trails and calm, clean water, attract visitors of all ages. Three group shelters, one near the dam, are ideal facilities for hosting graduation parties, family reunions and church or other organization events. The recreation area can be reserved during summer, though guests are invited to walk or cross-country ski during daylight hours at other times of year. Natural Features: The West River winds through some 567 acres of white pine and red oak forest, broken up by rolling meadows. Red maple swamps and several bogs fill the lowlands while three small brooks feed the river. Woods, fields, wetlands and streams provide habitat for both resident and migratory wildlife. Red fox, raccoon, deer and an occasional coyote find protection in the woods. Open fields attract rabbits, mice, butterflies, hawks and owls. Streams and wetlands are home to fish, spring peepers, box turtles and great blue herons, among others. The diverse habitat makes the one of the finest birding areas with 200 species sited annually. Spring and fall migrations bring the greatest diversity of species. Spring and summer also yields excellent wildflower viewing. Recreation: Visitors can attend nature programs given by park rangers. Families of all ages can enjoy swimming in a small natural pool, as well as picnic, hike, bike and play. About 2 miles of hiking trails meander through the woodlands and provide secluded views of the river. Seasonal hunting and fishing are popular at the lake. Anglers find trout in the main river channel and bass, pickerel and horned pout in the pools. Hunting for deer, small game and upland birds is permitted in accordance with state laws. The park hosts several special events annually, including the Family Fishing Fair in June and the volunteer-based National Public Lands Day in September. Facilities: The park is an attractive facility that offers two sandy swimming beaches, nearly 5 miles of nature, mountain biking and hiking trails, a sand volleyball court, an accessible playground, a change house by the beach, bathrooms with flush toilets, grills and picnic areas. Three picnic shelters are available for groups of up to 30 or 100 people. Two shelters are in the park and the other is near the dam.
