This park has 1,110 acres of beauty and offer limitless chances for visitors to explore what was once the hunting grounds of the Delaware Indians. One of the most unique natural regions in Ohio, the park and the adjacent Mohican River—which just so happens to be one of the best rivers to kayak and canoe in the state—are wonderlands for outdoor lovers. Trout, small bass, and other sportfish can be hooked at the accessible in-park reservoir and Pleasant Hill Kae. Mountain biking and moderate hiking exist along the Lyons Fall Trail. And, as the name might suggest, waterfall chasers will be happy to see Big and Little Lyons Falls up close and personal. For those interested in historical structures, take a short detour to nearby Wolf Creek Grist Mill, a fully restored 1830s working foundry that now doubles as a heritage museum.
A view from atop Clear Fork Gorge delights with expansive views of the Gorge Hemlock Forest below. In October, it’s especially gorgeous, courtesy of the area’s well-known fall foliage. During the spring take the Mohican Hog Hollow Trail (Covered Bridge to Fire Tower) to see wildlife and wildflowers.The 4.6 mile out and back trail is accessible year-round, and even (leashed) dogs are allowed on the trail.
Single campsites and group camps can be reserved on the park’s grounds. RVers will have the option to pick from over 35 full hookup sites, while campers can choose between over 100 electrical campsites and 35 primitive ones can be either reserved or snagged on a first-come, first served basis. Regardless of how you choose to camp, you’ll have access to full working showers, flush toilets, drinking water, and other amenities.
If your gung ho on having a more posh and plush stay, consider staying at camper cabin or the park’s luxurious lodge. Both cabin and lodge guests may use the on-site swimming pool and splash pad. But if you can’t live without WiFi or full dining services, you’ll want to opt for a room at the lodge.
No matter how you choose to spend your stay, just make sure you take full advantage one of Ohio’s most unique natural areas.
