Grins & Pickin's CampFarm
40 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents20 acres · Marengo, OHGrins & Pickin's CampFarm was created to share the outdoors with others. Growing food & flowers, camping & hiking is what we like to do. And we like sharing these activities with others. Our family oriented outdoor recreation facility is open on weekends only and offers primitive camping, PYO produce during the growing season, homesteading activities & nature-based programs. The peaceful 20-acre country farm has food gardens, a frog habitat pool, a barnyard for the chickens & ducks, a bluegill fishin' pond, a pollinator maze, a prairie garden, and an outdoor stage. After crossing a winding creek into 10 acres of woods, you may see deer, turkey, fox, coyote, mink, eagles & barred owls. In early spring, the peepers are peeping, wildflowers are abundant & the vernal pools welcome the wood frogs, salamanders and fairy shrimp. Summer brings on the bullfrogs, butterflies & dragonflies. Fall is a great time to pull grapevine to make wreaths & to build stick forts in the woods. We cater to the tent camper so that we can hear frogs & owls instead of generators. But, there is an RV section up front for those with quiet generators with several feet of gravel under the grass to hold the weight of your camper. We charge by the carload & there are different rates for driving back toward the woods for camping depending on the number of wheels & the weight of your vehicle (a factor on the wear & tear on the land). We believe in going outside to play, growing & eating fresh food, strengthening family bonds and promoting the awareness of our natural resources. PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING: 1) The speed limit is 5 mph as soon as you enter the property (kids & dogs are quick to dart in front of you). 2) As a state registered campground, it is mandatory that you check in at the house to fill out a Registration Form before heading to your campsite. 3) No glass allowed anywhere on the property (we don't want our feet or paws cut open and can do without flat tires). 4) Children under 18 must be attended to at all times for their safety (the frog pool is 10' deep, the pond is 8-10' deep depending on rains, and the creek can turn into a churning river). Thank you!

The Viking Longhall
10 sites · Lodging, Tents5 acres · Peebles, OHThe Viking longhall has been 9 years in the making by a group of semi serious Viking enthusiasts: the result is a 60 foot long building that has 18, 8,x4' sleeping berths. Set apart from the main open area it also boasts 2 meeting rooms and a kitchen.The campsite is a very peaceful place. Some go as far as to say a healing place! We are proud of what we have achieved and now want people to come out and enjoy it also.The field is close enough to the Appalachian highway (state route 32) for convenience, but far enough not to be bothered by it. The area is steeped in Native American culture. In fact, the world famous Serpent Mound is but 8 miles away, with many other Adena culture sites within easy driving distance. It's also in the heart of the Amish community. The area is known for its natural beauty with many hiking trails and canoeing opportunities.The area is awash in beauty and history from the ancient mound culture to the amish culture. The area has many hiking trails some of which are part of the buckeye trail and range in length from an easy 1 mile loop to rugged hikes of many miles.Come out and share the land that we have loved for the last 30 years

Zanesville is just an hour from Columbus, but it feels a world away. Everywhere you turn, there’s a state forest, state park, or protected wildlife area. That means one thing: beautiful, convenient camping. Whether you feel like swimming close to camp or sleeping at a forest RV park, this part of Ohio has you covered.

At Dillon State Park, fish for bass and play disc golf just steps from camp. Kids love the basketball court, and hikers can get active on seven trails. If you need to get online, the camp store has free Wi-Fi. You won’t find full hookups here, but most sites have electric; there’s also a dump station.

For some of the best hiking in Ohio, head south to Blue Rock State Park. The campground welcomes big rigs and horses; you can also opt for cabins or tent camping. Rent a boat in the park store and explore the small lake, or swim from the beach. When the lake freezes, come for ice fishing and ice skating.

A little further afield, Ohio offers some surprises. Kayak through hand-operated locks at Muskingum River State Park. At Wolf Run State Park, you can try freshwater scuba diving. To the south, Wayne National Forest is a haven for ATV riders, mountain bikers, and rock climbers.
