Enjoy the unique experience of communal camping in a Viking Longhall. Situated on 5 acres surrounded on three sides by a picturesque creek this 60'x30' building contains 18 sleeping berths on 2 levels. This is probably one of the more unique listings you will find on Hipcamp. The Viking Longhall offers a one of a kind venue for a variety of group gatherings be it a wedding, a birthday celebration, a family re-union, a larping adventure, a gaming arena, an educational or crafting retreat, symphomium.....in fact anytime a group want a large communal gathering place. The hall features 18 8'x4' sleeping Berths , 9 berths on ground level each with a full mattress and 9 on the upper floor each with a twin mattress (4 reachable by stairs and 5 by ladder only). The upper floor has an 15'x8' meeting room with large table and bench seating for 12. Also on the upper floor a second communal area/ extra sleeping area again 15'x8'. The ground floor has a kitchen/ meal preparation area with all the kitchen utensils and supplies you may need. Cooking is done on a 4 ring burner, or outside grill, or fire pit. A large open communal area some 40'x15' with 10 tables and bench type seating for up to 40. There is also a breezeway area approximately 16'x10' leading to the large double doors. There is a wrap around porch attached to the building.The campsite itself is 5 acres surrounded on 3 sides by wood covered cliffs. It is in one of the many hollows and has a very private secluded feel. The grounds contains number of other features......a large communal fire ring with ample bench seating, ideal for dancing and drumming. A small tiki bar (screened) next to the creek. There is also a large canopied dining area 30'x 8' with seating for about 40 and a small screen house for morning coffee etc. A shower house with on demand hot water, and an outhouse. The surrounding area is seeped in Native American culture with the world famous Serpent Mound being only 7 miles away and fort hill within short driving distance.Adams county contains 22 hiking trails, maps and guides for which we can supply. The area is also close to a 6 mile wide meteor impact crater so it is of interest to geologists.The night sky can be quite amazing with little light pollution.There are quite a few varieties of birds and plants and deer can quite often be seen grazing from the viewing platform that looks out across nearby fields. Although there is no electricity supply to the campground a 2000 watt quite generator is available which is enough to power lights and small electronics. Speaking of which there is almost no cell phone reception and no wi-fi, some find this a blessing and some an inconvenience, although a short walk will get your phone connected.Further images of the campground and its amenities can be seen from our other listings, yurt at Viking longhall, creek side cottage and tent camp at Viking Longhall. We also have a Facebook page, Viking Longhall Campground, although we would prefer to contact us with any questions directly through hipcamp.com. A variety of decorations and lighting are available at an extra charge.

Once again, a flawless weekend at the Viking Longhall! Loved the little improvements to the site, and the bonfires were perfect. Can't wait to return!

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!

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!

We had such a fun time this weekend. The Longhall was well set up for fixing meals, firewood 🪵 plentiful for communal fires, drums and instruments available to play with, axe throwing and larping equipment kept the kids entertained and the creek was gorgeous. David, the host, brought us coffee each morning and was very responsive. Basically, we had a ball.

The Longhall was incredible. It is so much more amazing than the photos and descriptions indicate. The kitchen set up was fantastic. There is not a need for much of anything except a cooler and ice to keep perishables. Great fire circle which David builds a wonderful fire each night, and there is a terrific assortment of drums to keep the music going.
