This is a beautiful 11 acre completely wooded lot with amazing topography and geologic diversity. It has been sought after by housing developers for years, but remains untouched due to legal battles related to driveway access. It currently provides an authentic secluded retreat in Powell, Ohio; a northwest suburb of Columbus, Oh. We are hoping to keep this land in it’s natural state (all of the site prep has been done by hand (and chain saw))- so come on out, enjoy a primitive retreat and contribute to furthering this land’s interesting story. 😀

This is a neat “primitive” campsite that is tucked into a natural wooded lot on 11 acres. It is located in Powell, Ohio- a northwest suburb of Columbus, Ohio. It would be ideal for campers seeking a close get away from Columbus or the suburbs, who would like to disconnect a bit and immerse themselves in nature. We've also had some people traveling through Columbus enjoy a quick stay here.
This is the only site on the 11 acres, so you won't have any other campers to contend with. The site is quite secluded from about June through early October. In the fall, it should be noted that the trees will lose their leaves. The result is that you can hear some traffic on occasion. Also, you may notice the neighbor's houses when you first arrive. Most people are able to get past this quite easily- as once you settle in you tend to forget about those things and enjoy the surrounding 11 acres of nature.
The site is mostly Ohio woodlands. Part of it is elevated and part of it is in floodplain adjacent to the Scioto River- providing some interesting topography. There is a small waterfall and two small creeks; which are most often active in the spring and fall.
The O'Shaughnessy Reservoir/Scioto River is in walking distance. There you can boat, canoe, kayak and fish, but just plain swimming is not allowed. Note that the reservoir also has a formal boat “dock” just 2 miles down the road.
For those who may wish to “base camp”- there are numerous amenities offered in Powell and nearby Dublin and Delaware and there are several interesting parks and hiking trails which would be just a short drive away.
We understand the pricing on this site may be a bit higher than most- but this is primarily related to the fact that we offer free fire wood; so you do not have to worry about bringing your own or paying for bundles as you go.
