Perfect camping experience
This was the loveliest camping experience I’ve had. I blew through overnight, but even so, in that time, the hosts offered local takeout recommendations, saw that I was well equipped with firewood, laid out utensils for me to use at dinner, took the time to chat and were incredibly kind, friendly and generous throughout. I’ve never met hosts like these two! The site itself is ideal, situated adjacent to a network of hiking and cycling trails, is well lit with lights strung up to guide you to the campsite (with the option of turning them off to see the stars at night), gorgeous view and - as a solo camper, I appreciated this - felt very safe and peaceful. Lots of wildlife, heard a couple owls in the night, woke up to deer on site in the morning. Really a perfect stay and I’ll come back to Akron specifically just to stay here again!
Great spot, secluded in the woods next to Sand Run. The site is well maintained, access to bathroom, hosts are very nice and helpful. I hiked there via Sand Run, that requires some off-trail and a climb up a ravine with a rope, but very doable for those that want the adventure. Otherwise easy access to parking from the front of house.
Bike touring the ohio to erie trail
Very nice secluded and spacious spot in the woods. Gary & Audrey were super nice and accommodating hosts. They shared a wrench with us so that we could make a small repair to our bicycle and told us about a shortcut through the woods to the local brewery. I highly recommend Thornhill Bluff!!
A fall experience close to home
This is a favorite, plan to attend as often as possible! Love that the firewood is stocked and dry, as this was a colder weekend. The walks through the woods are soul lifting, even witnessed a buck in all it's majesty.
The property and hosts were very accommodating in providing everything we needed for an extended stay. It was easy access to trails in CVNP as well as groceries and restaurants in town. The string lights made getting to and from the house at night a breeze and gave a nice ambience to the site. We got peppered with falling acorns but didn’t have any trouble with mosquitoes this late in the year. There was ample firewood available and the woodpiles helped block the wind and enhance privacy. The walk from the parking area is a considerable distance so bringing a wagon/cart would be helpful. Upon asking for restaurant suggestions the hosts were very helpful and considerate. Overall, great semi-primitive camping experience.
