This property was first established in 1976, and the original owner named the property “Pleasant Acres”. He and his wife lived here for over 30 years and still have grandchildren living a few houses down from us. Upon meeting his granddaughter and hearing the story, we decided to honor him and his family by keeping the name. My wife and I have lived here since March 2020, and we are excited to share this little slice of heaven with our friends, family, and future guests. Learn more about this land: Welcome to Pleasant Acres where you will have access to over 7 acres located on the national scenic river, Big Darby Creek. We are centrally located and Less than 10 minutes from Plain City, Dublin, and Hilliard, and only 30 mins from downtown Columbus! A short drive or bike ride to any of these lovely Ohio towns will find you a plethora of bars, restaurants, and shopping. We are on a very quiet and serene piece of land 1 mile upstream from Prairie Oaks metro park. Prairie Oaks is home to miles of hiking trails and Darby Bend lakes which has four lakes, bathrooms, shelter houses, and one the best dog parks in central Ohio. Available activities include kayaking, canoeing, fishing, swimming, axe throwing, volleyball, wildlife watching(there is a bald eagle nest just down stream), and more! Boat and axe rental, shuttle service (availability based on our availability to do so. please ask when booking.), and firewood bundles are available.

Extremely Needy 4 Space
Yup we were 26 foot toy hauler and needed the space, turn around and scenic all the way suitable for long vehicles. The cat enjoyed even on leash being able to get around in the grassy areas and paw a few trees. Fishing with ODNR license on the bank of scenic Darby rewarded foo.

Retreat by the creek
Retreat at the Creek This creekside Hipcamp was ideal for my weekend getaway. I enjoyed campfires by the scenic Big Darby Creek and I hiked in the Prairie Oaks Metro Park a short drive away. Lou was a great host, checked in daily and was available for questions. I hope to visit again.

Great stay
What a great experience camping on Lou's land. It's got lots of good spots near the water. The host was super nice to us. I would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful camping retreat. I will certainly be back with my family.

Scenic River Site 4
Excellent Stop
A wonderful spot to say with littles. The site is clean, tidy and feels very safe. I would absolutely stay there again. The host is kind and attentive. He came to check on us, and ask if we needed anything. Only downside is having to pee in the woods. But our kids were such champions about it. I would highly recommend this camping spot if you're looking for a great place to stay at night.

Scenic River Site 5
This site was easy to reach from I80, and had a lovely view of the river. We had a little trouble finding the correct house as their street number is only visible from one of the two possible directions from which you can arrive.
