The Viking longhall has been 9 years in the making by a group of semi serious Viking enthusiasts: the result is a 60 foot long building that has 18, 8,x4' sleeping berths. Set apart from the main open area it also boasts 2 meeting rooms and a kitchen. The campsite is a very peaceful place. Some go as far as to say a healing place! We are proud of what we have achieved and now want people to come out and enjoy it also. The field is close enough to the Appalachian highway (state route 32) for convenience, but far enough not to be bothered by it. The area is steeped in Native American culture. In fact, the world famous Serpent Mound is but 8 miles away, with many other Adena culture sites within easy driving distance. It's also in the heart of the Amish community. The area is known for its natural beauty with many hiking trails and canoeing opportunities. The area is awash in beauty and history from the ancient mound culture to the amish culture. The area has many hiking trails some of which are part of the buckeye trail and range in length from an easy 1 mile loop to rugged hikes of many miles. Come out and share the land that we have loved for the last 30 years

The Tri-State Vikings were amazed by the land and the owners hospitality. We are very thankful to have such a wonderful authentic place to have our events. We greatly appreciate how welcomed we felt. This place has a history and true touch.

Creekside Cottage
Viking inspired outdoor experience
I found David’s property to be beautiful and David to be a wonderful host. The Creekside cottage is uniquely warm and cozy, the bed very comfortable. David prepared a fire in the pit just outside the cottage door with plenty of logs for the evening. I traveled alone but felt safe. The other buildings on the property accommodate larger groups and are equally unique and inviting. This property is one of a kind, super special. David is an exceptional host.

Staying in the creekside cottage hosted by David was absolutely a dream. I stayed here for a little getaway before I give birth to my fourth baby boy. David had everything so well prepared and laid out for me to be able to kick back and just relax and enjoy the peace and beauty of the gorgeous scenery. He also shared some great recommendations with me on nearby hiking and House of Phacops rock shop nearby - very glad I got to experience both! It was so nice to just have to light the fire and enjoy. The hot coffee in the morning was a lovely bonus too. I hope to be able to return again soon in the future.

Birthday in the yurt.
Our family enjoyed this unique location with a rich history. We would certainly go back to explore more local attractions like hiking trails and historical landmarks. The yurt was cozy and warm and we loved the intimate campfire/dining area. The hosts were beyond gracious and kind, helping us celebrate our daughters 10th birthday in the woods. Thank you!

Birthday weekend getaway
My husband and I had a wonderful experience her at the cottage. You can definitely tell that David and Ivea put a lot of time into their place. If you're looking for a relaxing, romantic, not so much camping atmosphere, this is the prefect spot. Loved all the beautiful fall colors and being with nature. Definitely going back.

Wonderful, Returning soon!
A great camping adventure for us. We've tented all over the country and never enjoyed something like this! Unique, beautiful property, fun, comfortable, charming! I was relieved after a 7 hour drive: campfire already set up, kind, friendly, welcoming hosts, coffee in the morning! Spacious sites. Nice clean facilities. We are returning again on the way home. Easy access from highway. Highly recommend.

Best Camping Experience Yet
David is SO hospitable! Everything was essentially provided upon arrival so if you forgot to pack something they had you covered. The cabin/cottage itself was very quaint and cozy. This stay was, in our opinion, the optimal way to camp with the necessities to make you more comfortable! We will definitely be returning.

Another birthday spent at the Longhall over a long weekend. I haven't found a better place to celebrate with my loved ones, dress in costume, dance around the fire, and enjoy life. I hope to continue this annual tradition!

Welcoming camping experience
We loved our experience at David’s space. We enjoyed the tent camping space that included a tiki structure for cooking and were able to light it up with tea lights to feel homey. The creek on the property was a plus for the kids. They were able to explore the area and be close to the campsite. David was a great host and checked in on us to ensure we had everything we needed.

Rainy but Worth It
This was our second time staying at the campground, first time renting the longhall. David is a gracious host and our group of 25+ had a great time. While the rain put a damper on some of the outdoor activities, we managed to have fun during the dry spells with axe throwing, archery, and battling with prop weapons. One of the highlights was our feast at the outdoor long table complete with turkey legs. Even with the rain, we had no issues with leaks or flooding, the outdoor table also kept us dry during our dinner, and David was able to setup a bonfire every evening. We are looking forward to planning this trip again in the future!

Incredible Experience!
The entire site is beautiful and David is an incredible host! We stayed in the Creekside Cottage and it was furnished with everything you could need for a perfect stay. The fire was ready for us when we got there and David met with us to show the entire campground. The entire campsite is breathtaking and accommodating, with plenty to do and plenty to see. We will definitely be returning in the future and highly recommend The Viking Longhall to anyone looking for a magical getaway! Thank you David for the wonderful experience!

Our Return
This was our 2nd stay at the Creekside Cottage. David is a wonderful host. He is knowledgeable about the area, is lovely to talk to, and is one of the most thoughtful people we have encountered. We were looking forward to our return to the grounds and had fun exploring the hiking trails, House of Phacops, and town nearby. There is a lot of love at the Viking Longhall and it is evident in every detail. Thank you again, we look forward to returning once more.

Family Camping at the Viking Yurt
Our family had a great time at David's Viking Yurt! While our weekend started out rainy, we stayed nice and dry inside the yurt and had a great time creeking at the camp and enjoying the amenities. We spent Saturday exploring historic sites nearby (like Serpent Mound) and after the rain let up, really enjoyed the campsite. David was so nice and checked on us to see if we needed anything. Hot coffee in the morning, plenty of candles in the evening to create a fun atmosphere. We really enjoyed our fun camping trip!

What can I say? David & his Viking-inspired Campgrounds continue to be one of the most magical locations in Southern Ohio to spend an evening or long weekend relaxing and escaping the daily hustle. This was now our third visit tent camping at the Viking Longhalll, and we are more & more impressed each & every time. 10/10 would recommend. Will definitely be back for more!

Escape from the world!
Super cool, totally remote (no signal, no electricity!), little spot of land. The camps/cabins are so cool! We jumped in the creek, threw axes, played boardgames, cooked dinner on the fire, drank wine from the viking horn glasses, and woke up to fresh coffee in the morning! If you need to escape and feel like a viking, come here!

Camping at the Long Hall
A wonderful campground built with tons of care. The Long Hall structure is beautifully built and inspiring. David goes above and beyond as a host, offering extra water, firewood, extra time of generator power, etc. Plus he’s great to chat with! The gas heated camp shower is very nice and the activities and games available to all guests are great.
