Located only 8 miles from Hocking Hills State Park, Altenbrauch Farm features 62 acres of open fields, small streams and wooded hills intersected by a lonely country road.  Aside from our house, there are no neighbors in sight.  Easily pitch your tent in an open field or trek through the hills and hollows to find your perfect campsite. As part of Ohio's famous Hocking Hills Region, Vinton County is home to the second largest state forest, in addition to multiple state parks and wildlife areas. You’ll encounter abandoned historical sites and relics dating back to the early 1800s, hidden away among the wooded hills of Ohio’s least populated county. If you're a lover of outdoor recreation, this is the place to be. Within about a half-hour drive, there are many opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking, hunting and fishing, and birding.  Nearby parks and forests include Hocking Hills State Park, Hocking Hills State Forest, Lake Hope State Park, Zaleski State Forest, the Moonville Rail Trail, Lake Alma State Park, Tar Hollow State Forest, and more! Set up camp wherever you like!  There are 12 acres of open field space, surrounded by 50 acres of wooded hills and hollows with hiking trails and level spots to pitch tents. Vehicles can be driven to the field sites; we are still working on a road to access the hill sites by vehicle.  The fields have about a dozen "permanent" sites with stone or metal fire rings and log seating.  Portable fire rings are also available that can be moved anywhere.  Dead wood for campfires is free to gather, or split firewood is available to purchase for $5/bundle. A toilet and solar shower are located at the center of the property. An outdoor water spigot is also available. Guests are expected to follow the "Leave No Trace" principles. Any trash packed onto the property must be bagged and taken with you.

We had a great experience camping here! There were plenty of cozy campsites along the edges of fields. Very beautiful land, close to the Hocking Hills hikes, and clear instructions.

Perfect trip
Great space, huge! Plenty of room to spread out. Check in was easy, nice little camp store with basic fire needs, tents available to rent, extra tent stakes if you're short. There was so much room I didn't even notice when someone else setup camp down field from me until I left. Very peaceful and relaxing space, within about 15 minutes of popular Hocking Hills trails. These trails are very busy so I recommend getting up early. I got there before 9 and had everything to myself, by the time I left there were hundreds there.

Extremely Peaceful
Extremely Peaceful! Being close to the State Park was a plus as we spent a day there. For the most part though, we were happy staying right on the property. The Port-a-Potty and having water available were a bonus.
