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.

Caleb’s land is great. It’sflat and has a few trails around to hike. His “store” for firewood and other camping gear is very convenient if anybody lost or forgot a piece of gear, I’d enjoy camping here again.

Great campsites!
My wife and I loved this property. There are plenty of campsites that are spaced out giving you plenty of privacy!

Caleb has a great well-kept property close to the state park. The property is truly massive. You shouldn’t have any problem finding a space for yourself. The “information kiosk” you see when you drive in is extremely helpful. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to camp in the area. Only one hiccup: the potable water spigot is in Caleb’s backyard, and they have a dog that likes to bark if you come close. Certainly dissuaded me from getting water. Consider bringing your own or get ready to call Caleb if the pup is out.

We had a fun time at the upper field. Temps were a little on the cold side, but it was a good time. The site was private and peaceful.

Happy campers
Me and my fiancé decided to go tent camping here for a last minute get away weekend trip. We choose the campsite at the first field tucked away in corner and we loved it. The check in station was put together very nice and provided all the information you would need. It was peaceful and all went well. Close to hocking hills and would recommend to a friend. Peace and love

Great camp site
It was a nice stay ! Only thing I would suggest is to try and stock more firewood in the little store at the check in. It was nice land and would stay again! Just make sure u screenshot directions to the camp because there is no service at all in or near the camp site. Thank you Caleb for my stay!

Jeep Camping
My wife and I tent camped with our jeep on this property. It was just what we were looking for. The camp sites were far enough apart we didn’t even hear anyone else. The trails in the woods were great for off roading with the jeep. They had a small camp shop that you could buy wood and a few supplies from. Close to Hocking Hills so we were able to get some hiking in also. We will be back!

Caleb’s property was lovely for primitive tent camping. Due to the rain, we didn’t venture too far into the woods, so we were on the edge of the main field. You could see other campers but they weren’t too close. The accommodations (porta potty, firewood, check in) were great and easy to use.

Annual Camping Trip!
This was our second year camping there, we love it so much we decided to make it an annual event. Very spacious and spread apart sites. There’s even a camp store, firewood and other items you may need.

Host was amazing! Very friendly and welcoming. Their land was gorgeous! Only 15 or so minutes from multiple hiking trails. 10/10. Would stay here again. They had plenty of wood logs available for purchase as well as rental tents and other items if needed.

Caleb's land was great! Secluded but pretty easy to find, gorgeous drive on the way in. (I don't know if this is true year-round, but in mid-August our spot had NO mosquitoes even though we were close to a nearby stream-- we were amazed!)

Scenic and peaceful
The campground was really beautiful. There was a lot of space between us and the other campers so it was quiet and felt more like we were in nature compared with the big public campgrounds where people are crammed in together. The campground had a small creek running along behind it and pretty fields. There were places you could make a fire. The toilet was just a portapotty but that was still better than nothing! The shower was a portable-bag-type shower with a wood privacy stall built around it. My only wish was that there was a water source in the campground itself--currently it's somewhere at the host's house but I believe I read somewhere they are working on building one by the shower and portapotty. Those are very minor gripes and overall this was a wonderful place to stay. We had no trouble finding the place either.

Nice stay
I really enjoyed seeing the pup roaming around freely with the kiddos. I couldn’t tell who enjoyed it more; the kids or my 1yr old lab! We chose our spot in the first section of the farm and went all the way back in an area surrounded by trees. There weren’t any other campers in the section we stayed in, so it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Although we did find D4 batteries in the fire pit, which we had to remove and throw in our own trash bag, the campsite was generally very clean. The next comments are just observations: Just so everyone knows, they’re working on a new water spigot. You’ll have to use one that’s in the owner’s backyard. We found the firewood bundles to be on the smaller side, but you can gather your own wood. Also, the shower is an enclosed area with a hanging refillable solar bag. So, if you plan to use the shower, make sure to fill up the bag with water (you might find it empty like we did), let the bag hang in directly sunlight, and give it time to warm up the water. If you do not do this, you might find yourself taking a cold shower. Another thing, there is absolutely no connection in this area!! I didn’t mind it too much because I liked that the kids weren’t on their phones!! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The nearby creek made it extra fun for the kids and the pup. The kids got to see small fish and frogs, and the pup got to cool off. We truly recommend this place, and we hope to be back in the autumn!

A beautiful wooded getaway!
Caleb's land made for the perfect weekend camping trip to Hocking Hills! His directions were clear and the self check-in process was easy. It was so fun to explore the land and find the perfect spot to set up our tent. We loved how spread out the sites were and the privacy that the land offered. The woods and creek made for a perfect setting to camp in.

We enjoyed camping here in our small travel trailer. It was very quiet and we did not see a car on the road near our site during the first night. Very peaceful and relaxing area.
