Pitch your tent next to a field of wildflowers in the rolling hills of Southeast Ohio. There's also space to pull or back in a small camper trailer or van. Watch the sunset, enjoy a campfire, stargaze, and enjoy the peace and quiet that rural Appalachia offers.

We are about a 20 min. drive to Athens, OH and a 25 min. drive to Parkersburg, WV. Plenty of other small towns and activities like Pomeroy, Chesterhill, Baileys Trail System, Strouds Run State Park, and more are within driving distance too, and we are happy to make recommendations! Lyft is accesible.

There is a composting toilet within a small structure tucked into the trees. There is a water line that runs out to the camping area with drinkable water. We have a solar shower bag we are happy to set up for campers as well.

There is no wifi or electric hookups at this site; however, our main house is just down the drive should you absolutely need anything.

We stayed two nights at the Peaceful Appalachian Retreat. It is a beautiful site next to a wildflower meadow. The property is tidy with considerate touches of water and hand sanitizer. The composting toilet is a convenient distance tucked into the woods and very clean. The hose was very convenient to top off our water supply.
The site was not especially level for tent camping; it is right across the driveway from the little trailer which is also a Hipcamp rental.

Alexandria was SO NICE! She even helped us with directions when we got lost. Her site was very quiet and peaceful. We loved staying there!

- no running water, not even a creek or small pond
- could hear the highway
- no fire pit. The fire “pit” was just a spot in the grass where someone threw a bunch of nailed boards and half burned them and some beer bottles too
- the woods looked to be timbered out a while ago so the understory was full of briers and Unwalkable and the “fields” were just unmanaged patches of invasive weeds and brush so there was nothing to do but sit in the tent or drive somewhere else

Hi there! Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. You could have reached out with any questions or concerns; however, most of the things you noted were not listed as being available at this site. The field gets cut once a year to actually discourage invasives. Hiking locations were noted in the listing. Hopefully you still enjoyed Athens and will find a more suitable location for your next visit!
