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, an outhouse and a large tree house viewing platform.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.

Please be informed that you will have to supply your own bedding.

Wow. Just… incredible. David and Iveagh were such kind, gracious hosts and the Viking Long Hall (and entire property!) was straight from a dream! They had everything you could need for a comfortable, fun-filled visit. We will be returning as soon as possible!

Absolutely perfect. This is the best spot for a party ever. If you're reading this, just book it already. David and Iveagh are incredibly thoughtful hosts and go the extra mile to make sure you have everything you need for anything you want. The decoration, roaring fires, drumming, things to explore, stars above... It's easy to see and feel the love and care they invest into this magical place. Our party of 22 humans and 7 dogs has nothing but good things to say. Thank you thank you thank you David and Iveagh. See you soon!

David and his crew were amazing, provided so much and were great people to talk to. They would check on us multiple times a day to see if we needed anything and if we were enjoying our stay. The Longhall and property surrounding was more than we had expected. We definitely plan on making this a yearly adventure!

I am a wedding officiant who wanted to create a Viking themed wedding experience for myself and my partner in life. On our 14th anniversary, on a sacred and special day, we were handfasted in the company of our family and friends - Covid safety was observed - and the whole experience was imperfectly perfect... like many weddings. I'm an event organizer and I learned so much from hosting here. The atmosphere was wonderful. The fires stayed hot and the heaters kept us mostly warm. We will continue to return to this land and host future events both personally and professionally. Highly recommended.
