The Lake at the Flying J Farm

8 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents250 acres · Johnstown, OH
The Flying J Farm is 250 beautiful rolling acres including 100 acres of forest, 6-acre lake small pond, three streams, and numerous fields for crops and pastures with cows, horses and chickens. The owner bought the farm in 1998 for his retirement from a faculty position at the Ohio State university. Two buildings, the farm house and old barn, are original dating back to 1831. These have been restored for current use. The mission of the farm is to restore health both in people though the products produced and in the land by farming in a sustainable way with no conventional chemicals, antibiotics, and use of GMO. We host many visitors including tours and events. An on farm market is available to visitors for purchase of our products including grass-fed beef, maple syrup, and fruits and vegetables. The cabin was built using wood from the farm. It has off-grid electricity meaning it is powered by batteries charged by solar panels. There is not sufficient power for devices with a heating element such as coffee makers and hair dryers. You may charge cell phones. For any other use, please check with the owner.

McKee Farm - Treehouses and Camping

16 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents230 acres · Frazeysburg, OH
McKee Farm is rich in memories and rich in history. It has been in the family for over 150 years and we were told that it was one of stopping points for the underground railroad. The 240 acre farm boasts a hidden cave, wide open fields, breathtaking forest land, and historic and rustic barns. Nestled at the edge of a wooded creek, Tullihas in the Trees treehouse boasts a beautiful sunset view with rolling hills. Tullihas combines comfort with the thrill of being immersed in nature. Built using recycled electric poles, Tullihas in the Trees has a deck perfect for hammocking, an interior dressed with windows so that guests can feel as if they are living amongst the trees, and two small lofts ideal for a restful night's sleep. Oxley in the Woods is our newest treehouse cabin. Nestled in the woods with a view of the sunset, the lovely A Frame is filled with lovely woodwork, vintage parquet flooring, and private wooded views. The deck is huge! We've had guests set up a tent on the deck beside the treehouse for fun! Swings, and a slide make the Oxley a fun adventure. The double bed in the loft and the two stacked single beds are comfortable and cozy. The McKee Farmhouse was built in the 1800s and is rich in memories. It's a rustic old house, with wood trim, hardwood floors, and plenty of imperfections that make it unique. You can sit on the porch and drink your coffee with a view of the barn and pastures, or cozy up in one of the house's four bedrooms and sleep in. The house is fully air conditioned and heated, has all the amenities of home, but takes you back to a simpler time. Our campsites are all set apart from one another in various locations on the 240 acre farm. Secluded and unique, each campsite has its own charm. We provide guests with a fire ring and a shovel, and some sites have a picnic table. Hiking trails are marked throughout the land. Guests can hike with views of horses, cows, wildlife, corn fields, large boulders, and rustic barns. The dirt roads provide great places to drive ATVs and four-wheelers. An Amish farm borders McKee Farm. Guests should know there is minimal cell service, however, this can offer a great opportunity to unplug. Tullihas in the Trees provides a perfect remote and rustic getaway for anyone. In October and November, access to hiking is limited.

Riverside Drive Retreat.

1 site · Tent11 acres · Powell, OH
This is a beautiful 11 acre completely wooded lot with amazing topography and geologic diversity. It has been sought after by housing developers for years, but remains untouched due to legal battles related to driveway access. It currently provides an authentic secluded retreat in Powell, Ohio; a northwest suburb of Columbus, Oh. We are hoping to keep this land in it’s natural state (all of the site prep has been done by hand (and chain saw))- so come on out, enjoy a primitive retreat and contribute to furthering this land’s interesting story. 😀Learn more about this land:This is a neat “primitive” campsite that is tucked into a natural wooded lot on 11 acres. It is located in Powell, Ohio- a northwest suburb of Columbus, Ohio.  It would be ideal for campers seeking a close get away from Columbus or the suburbs, who would like to disconnect a bit and immerse themselves in nature. We've also had some people traveling through Columbus enjoy a quick stay here.  This is the only site on the 11 acres, so you won't have any other campers to contend with.  The site is quite secluded from about June through early October.  In the fall, it should be noted that the trees will lose their leaves.  The result is that you can hear some traffic on occasion.  Also, you may notice the neighbor's houses when you first arrive.  Most people are able to get past this quite easily- as once you settle in you tend to forget about those things and enjoy the surrounding 11 acres of nature.  The site is mostly Ohio woodlands. Part of it is elevated and part of it is in floodplain adjacent to the Scioto River- providing some interesting topography. There is a small waterfall and two small creeks; which are most often active in the spring and fall.  The O'Shaughnessy Reservoir/Scioto River is in walking distance.  There you can boat, canoe, kayak and fish, but just plain swimming is not allowed.  Note that the reservoir also has a formal boat “dock” just 2 miles down the road.  For those who may wish to “base camp”- there are numerous amenities offered in Powell and nearby Dublin and Delaware and there are several interesting parks and hiking trails which would be just a short drive away.  We understand the pricing on this site may be a bit higher than most- but this is primarily related to the fact that we offer free fire wood; so you do not have to worry about bringing your own or paying for bundles as you go.
