You'll be camping at the Off Grid Venue and Camping. We are primarily a music and events venue available for rent 1/2 days, 24 hrs or all weekend events. We only rent to Hipcampers when no events are happening therefore camping dates are limited. Situated in beautiful south-eastern Ohio, we have 69 acres of hardwood forest to explore with over 5 miles of hiking trails. We're located close to several state parks, two Vineyard/Wineries and a short hop to Athens/Ohio University Learn more about this land: We currently have 3 tent sites within a couple hundred feet of the pavilion, which offers not only one of the best camp bathrooms you've ever experienced but also a 24' X 32' sheltered area for those unexpected downpours. We are located 1 mile from route 33 and 4 miles from routes 50 & 32. There are two Vineyard/Wineries within a 3 mile radius and we're only 7 miles from Athens and Ohio University's Convocation Center and football stadium. We offer over 5 miles of hiking trails with beautiful second growth hardwoods and a lake view.

Love the peace & dark starry skies
We loved John’s camp site! It’s more than just a camp site. It’s a huge camping area, w 3 camp sites that are far from each other and private. There are woods all around and a bonus solar powered pavilion with clean flush toilets and hot showers! It’s a short easy drive to Athens and a very pleasant camp site. We will definitely be back

Lovely
This spot is a gem! A few lovely spots surrounded by fall foliage that glistened in the rising and setting sun. Clean bathrooms nearby. Lovely hosts.

Off the Grid is a beautiful camp site! The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. John and Julie greeted us and showed us around. The site has everything we needed. We had a great time camping there!

Dreamy fall camping spot
Wow, what a gem of a camping site! This venue is gorgeous and private, even with three camping spots, they're spread out so if there were other folks around, you would still have your own space. Having access to bathrooms and showers with hot water was a treat, especially with the cooler fall weather.

We had an amazing weekend! Great, well kept grounds. Plenty of space and privacy. The solar powered pavilion with showers was such a treat. John was such a great host. Can’t wait to stay here again next year.

John was a friendly host. Awesome site that was very private. Clean vacuities with nice trails through the woods. Dog friendly too! Close proximity to OU. We will be back.

Star gazing on a beautiful property
With all the hotels booked up for OU parents weekend, my wife and I decided to tent camp instead. We are so glad we did! What a beautiful and private campground with wonderful solar powered facilities. Plenty of space at each camp site, and it would be a wonderful venue for a family gathering or multiple family camping trip. We will definitely be back.

Staying on John’s land was a wonderful experience! Very clean and quiet. The bathrooms were lovely as well! John a pleasure to talk to and was very generous in helping us collect firewood for the weekend. We would definitely stay here again.

Camping off the grid!
We loved tent camping @ John’s “Off The Grid” venue…only 10 minutes from Lake Snowden where we attended the Ohio Pawpaw festival. Directions were clear to get there. Property is a hidden gem on top of a hill with 3 spacious campsites… we stayed on site #1 - complete with firewood. We appreciated the eco friendly amenities- recycling & solar powered pavilion with 2 full baths. John was available and responded to any questions or issues before and during our weekend stay… we will definitely be back!

Such a great spot
Another sweet, mellow, relaxing stay at John and Julie’s. Love this place. The amenities are great, and the space between campsites is so ideal. Will return here again and again.

A sweet oasis, with great amenities
What a lovely place, owned and operated by nice people. I was looking for a quiet spot to camp and I found it here. No RVs, no all-night drive by yahoos like you get at public places. In fact, Off Grid Venue is at the end of a no-outlet driveway, so there's no drive-by traffic at all. And it's not far at all from 33. Best part? It's quiet up here. And by up here, I mean at the top of the driveway, you enter this former hay field now planted with mowed grass. The three campsites are very well spaced with solid fire pits. The outbuilding has solar power, flushing toilets, modern sinks and showers. It's clean. There's a roofed patio at the building. I'm used to roughing it, but this was a sweet oasis on all levels, and exactly what I needed. Will definitely return!

We had a great time tent camping on John's land. He and his wife were very welcoming and friendly. The pavilion with showers and bathrooms were a great amenity. The location feels very private but is close to Athens, Hocking Hills, and several other state parks.

Tent camping while at Hocking Hills
This place is awesome. We have already booked another date here. I almost don't want to leave a review because I don't want to share this place with anyone else. This place is super quiet at night, it is dark enough at night that we saw the MilkyWay. The bathrooms were great, hot water and a flush toilet. The pavilion is also great for rain or super sunny days.

Very nice hidden spot with only a few campsites. Lots of space to stretch out and the pavilion with bathrooms was a nice amenity. Quick 15 drive to Athens and nature all around!

Camping with kids and Pug.
Great place to camp. Off the grid. First night we were the only people there. Second night another couple checked in but sites are so spread out you wouldn’t of known there was another couple there. Shower and bathrooms were clean and well kept. Would definitely camp there again. Camped there with kids and a pug. John and his wife were great and attentive with any needs. John’s wife even brought a football for my son to play with and bubbles and jump ropes for the girls to enjoy. Had a shelter with picnic tables to enjoy if raining and unable to enjoy at camp site. Even had picnic table for children. We even forgot one of our folding chairs and they allowed us to use one of theirs which was very nice and helpful.

John is an excellent host, and his camp property is fantastic. It was very peaceful. He takes excellent care of the entire property, and his communication was top notch. The restrooms were extremely clean and the shelter was great. We highly recommend John’s campsite! Oh, and the location is excellent.

Southern Ohio Gem - Best Bathroom!
Great primitive site with excellent firepit, picnic table and bonus flush toilet and hot shower! There is plenty of space, the ground is pretty flat, and the bathroom is wonderful. We didn't need to use the shelter with the tables and chairs as the weather was nice, but we appreciate the offer to use them. The attached swivel grill on the large firepit was very cool. The only word of caution is that the driveway is a steep uphill with a few curves. We had a large van and no problems getting up. I would hesitate with motorcycles, but would still do it in the daylight. The hosts, Julie and John were gracious and welcoming, and very quick to respond to texts.

Wonderful host and amenities
OffGrid Venue is a fantastic camping spot. The restroom and shelter were immaculate. The hosts were perfectly accommodating - we arrived after dark in the rain and they greeted us and had made a fire for us! It was quiet and there were nicely cleared walking trails around the property. We can’t wait to visit again!

Enjoyed our stay at the OffGrid campsite! John and his wife were great hosts who met us upon arrival and showed us around the property. We loved having the bathroom facilities so close to the campsites. We would definitely stay again in the future!

It was a very beatuful camp spot. The accomindations were way above grade and the hoste john was more then willing to please us. Since all wood was wet do to rain the shelter was way great and he helped us try to get a fire going but it was nice wx enough to be comfortable. Would highly recomed the place if on a trip or alumni event or solo. Great experiance. FISH.
