In 1955 when my family bought our 180-acre farm, there were Shagbark Hickory trees lining both shores of a rock-filled stream. Years later a 550-acre lake was created from damming our stream and Hickory shores became the wildlife- filled headwaters. Bald Eagles, fox, river otters, ospreys, beaver, and deer are frequent visitors to our farm along with other water birds and wildlife. Recreational opportunities are plentiful including fishing, paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking. The 50 mile Western Reserve Greenway paved bike trail is 1 1/2 miles away on country roads and other adjoining roads create unlimited quiet country rides and walks. In 2023 we have added a 3/4 mile wooded trail along the shores of Rock Creek with lookouts and 27 numbered stops. These stops are described in our Hickory Shores interpretive guide available at the trailhead. Additional hiking trails continue upstream and connect two seasonal waterfalls on the property. Benches along the way provide quiet spots to rest or picnic. Spectacular sunsets, a quiet country paved road and Amish buggies await your visit. We are in Ashtabula County, home to 32 wineries and 19 covered bridges including the shortest and longest in the U.S. The second weekend in October brings the Covered Bridge Festival in nearby Jefferson, Ohio. We are conveniently located south of Lake Erie and 16 miles east of Pymatuning Reservoir for additional recreational opportunities. We currently offer 2 campsites, and both are conveniently located near a cottage style bathroom which features a flush toilet and shower. The electric site provides a 30 amps connection and a hook-up to water if desired. Each site has a campfire ring with outdoor chairs. A redwood picnic table is located at each site. An outdoor utility sink is also provided for dishwashing and can be found outside the bathhouse. Abundant firewood is available for $5.00 a wheelbarrow. (Honor system). If you are bringing dogs, please be aware that Sunny the inside/outside cat may greet you (he loves to say hello). For his safety and the safety of your pet, please keep dogs leashed. Please NO SMOKING allowed on farm or in bathroom.

My family loved camping on Marcia and Jack’s land! We were greeted right away when we arrived Marcia and jack showed us around and helped us get settled making sure we knew where everything was. The trails were so fun to hike and very clearly marked. The bathroom was such a treat especially after a long hot day at the beach with a dirty kid lol. There’s a very convenient outdoor sink that was great for washing dishes. My son didn’t want to go home! At night it was so peaceful and quite definitely 10 out of 10!

We loved staying at Marcia & Jack’s Hipcamp. The place was easy to access for first time pop-up trailer campers. Jack offered his expertise and patient guidance in helping to navigate parking the camper. All utilities were available, along with a wonderful bathhouse and fire pit lovely hosts lovely place. Would definitely stay there again.

Amazing set up and the hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. It was very well kept and relaxing! The bath house was very nice and we appreciated the outdoor sink to do dishes. The hosts mentioned a few hiking trails that sounded amazing and the property itself is very quiet and full of nature. We only stayed one night on our way passing through but would definently stay again if we are ever in the area.
