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.

Lovely Labor Day
We loved staying at Marcia and Jack's over Labor Day weekend. The site was large and beautiful. We followed the nature trail using the guide provided by our hosts. It was so fun to learn about the different plants and animals and to hear their family stories. Marcia and Jack checked in with us daily, even bringing us some tomatoes from their garden. We can't wait to return to Hickory Shores!

Great host. Super friendly. Trails and pond to explore. Restroom is by far the best I have seen for outdoor amenities. Quiet and peaceful. Great fire pit to look at the stars, which can be seen.

Great camping, even better hosts!
We loved our trip to Marcia’s land, it was extremely peaceful and relaxing! We spent the weekend touring around the area and wine tasting in Geneva. We loved walking on their trails on the land, and picking berries and apples from their garden. Jack gave us a wonderful tour of their place and made some great recommendations for places to go. The bathroom was really clean and the shower felt excellent after a long day. Definitely the nicest camp bathroom we have ever had! The spot we camped in was right next to their garden and we got to hear lots of the wildlife throughout the weekend. We are looking forward to a trip back in the near future!

Beautiful campsite
We had an amazing time at Hickory Shores! Marcia and Jack are such kind hosts and take really good care of their property. The gardens are beautiful, the bathroom is amazing, and the walking trails were just what we needed to get some short walks in with our senior dog. Be sure to read the handy trail guide to get the history of the land and learn about the trees. We hope we can return again!

Hickory Shores was one of the best highlights to my trip to Ohio. Wonderful experience and Marcia and Jack were awesome hosts. Definitely will try to visit there, the next time I am in town. Besides I didn't get to try their Local Mexican cuisine.
