Located only 8 miles from Hocking Hills State Park, Altenbrauch Farm's 62-acre property features a mix of open fields, small streams, wooded hills and a lonely country road. Easily pitch your tent in an open field or trek through the hills and hollows to find the perfect primitive campsite.

As part of Ohio's famous Hocking Hills Region, Vinton County is home to the second largest state forest, in addition to multiple state parks and wildlife areas. You’ll encounter abandoned historical sites and relics dating back to the early 1800s, hidden away among the wooded hills of Ohio’s least populated county. If you're a lover of outdoor recreation, this is the place to be. Within about a half-hour drive, there are many opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking, hunting and fishing, and birding.  Nearby parks and forests include Hocking Hills State Park, Hocking Hills State Forest, Lake Hope State Park, Zaleski State Forest, the Moonville Rail Trail, Lake Alma State Park, Tar Hollow State Forest, and more!

Set up camp wherever you like!  There are 12 acres of open field space, surrounded by 50 acres of wooded hills and hollows with hiking trails and level spots to pitch tents. Vehicles can be driven to the field sites; we are still working on a road to access the hill sites by vehicle.  The fields have about a dozen "permanent" sites with stone or metal fire rings and log seating.  Portable fire rings are also available that can be moved anywhere.  Dead wood for campfires is free to gather, or split firewood is available to purchase for $5/bundle. A toilet and solar shower are located at the center of the property. An outdoor water spigot is also available. Guests are expected to follow the "Leave No Trace" principles. Any trash packed onto the property must be bagged and taken with you.

I LOVE THIS FARM! It’s more like a massive property with several places to camp. All spots had fire rings or fire pits built in, lots of fallen branches to burn! The solar fairy lights around the trees was a delightful and unexpected touch, also kept us from going off the side of the hill.
There is very little to no light pollution here. We were able to lay in the field and stare at the most stars we’ve ever seen. It was so clear we could see space dust and several shooting stars.
If you’re looking for an absolutely beautiful property to relax, take a hike or stargaze, this is it!

We will definitely be coming here again! There were great views, the place was kept nice, and the campsites are spaced farther apart than your typical campground so you weren’t disturbed by other campers.

We had a great couple nights here with a clear view of the moon. Caleb greeted us on arrival with a map and places to visit in the area. Lots of sites to set up camp along the field or in the trees, amenities in the wood shed for a camp fire, and a short drive to the state park for hiking in the hills!

Excellent location to enjoy the great outdoors! Hosts were very nice and we didn't have any issue with any other campers (sound, etc.). If you are interested in star gazing I highly recommend this spot. It's secluded enough that you can get an amazing view of the sky on a clear night and the Astronomy Park is nearby. (We didn't make it there this time but plan to make a visit when their telescope nights are back). We didn't make it to the hiking trails on the property but it looked like a lot of the other campers took advantage of the proximity. It was very nice of the hosts to include firewood purchases nearby and the fire pits are great! We did a lot of campfire cooking. Will definitely be back!
