Cincinnati/Northern KY - Private, end-of-the gravel road ridgetop just beyond the suburbs and next door to rural.  This quiet getaway spot for families and friends is surrounded by steep, forested hillsides home to wildlife, birdlife, and some human life(!). 

A great mini-getaway being only 25 min from Cinci & NKy river towns.  Welcoming to all looking for a little respite from the paved world. This is an easy, simple, beautiful spot to stay for a day or a few.

The 3 campsites are isolated from each other (see descriptions below). Each campsite outfitted with picnic table, fire ring, oil lantern, and a Welcome Kit (includes fire starting material, 3-4 pieces of split wood, and candle.) Additional firewood available onsite for purchase. 

Common areas include walking trails, a single-track forested hike, and historic log home (if not rented - see our Away at Green Hill Private Shelter listing!). Shared outhouse is uniquely nice and centrally situated.  

Our property is relatively quiet but not pristine. Human activities can be heard at various times and from various activities. 

Nearby sites and activities include Rabbit Hash General Store, Big Bone Lick State Park, the Ohio River, nature preserves, disc golf, hiking, biking, boating, kayaking, fishing and historic sites. Also 15 minutes from grocery, gas, restaurants, and other civilized amenities. 

Each registered guest will receive additional details via email upon booking.

Customer service is really amazing here and the owner is an amazing women. Our stay was a little different as it rained during our stay and we forgot to take her advice that it would rain and put the top of the tent on!
The only thing I would say that I wasn't expecting was all of the bugs and spiders that were around! Expect to cover yourself in bug spray 😊 Beautiful spot!

The bathroom was very nice and the historic cabin was cool! The host where very accommodating and pleasant. My only criticism would be that for a longer stay the lack of shower was a negative. We took a solar shower but we didn't have a place to hang it. So just keep that in mind. We also brought our own grate to cook over the fire. It worked perfectly but if you plan to cook you will want to bring one. We purchased the wood add on and it made things super easy! It was a great location for us between Cincinnati and the ark but there was alot of plane activity as we were near the airport. It wasn't overly loud tho and didn't bother us. It was very private and the kids enjoyed the trampoline alot!

This was our second camping experience here, and it was just as good as the first. The hosts are lovely and good with communication, and the property is pretty and well-tended. Well seasoned and stocked firewood, very nice composting toilet, and great spots for tents.

2nd time at this location - loved it. Mike and Terri take great care of the details (communication, fire kit, picnic tables, lanterns, maps, signage, and super clean) you show up and enjoy the space. Very peaceful and quiet. Will certainly come back again.

Excellent hosts! Very nice property. The sites have plenty of space between them so you don’t even know anyone else is there. Love the oil lanterns!
