Enjoy this private, level campsite as if it were your own backyard. Wayne National Forest surrounds the property with easy access to Bailey's Mountain Bike Trail System and thousands of acres of Wayne National Forest.

This site offers a tent pad, picnic table, fire pit, and can accommodate a couple of hammocks. The first bundle of firewood is included, with additional wood available.

A shared pit toilet is only a few feet away.

This site is very convenient to Nelsonville, fast food, grocery store, gas station, and laundromat.

If mountain biking is your thing, Baileys Trail System has 25 miles completed, with over 60 more miles in the works.  And, don't forget about the great MTB trails just a short drive away at Strouds Run State Park and Lake Hope State Park.

For the adventure motorcyclists, use camp as your base to spend the weekend exploring the backroads around Wayne National Forest and the scenic gravel roads this area offers.  We have plenty of room to unpack your panniers and lighten your load for a couple days, and just a short ride into town for supplies or fast food.

We LOVED camping at West Maple! The site was very clean. The Vault toilets were very clean. The nature noises and near by farm noises were a nice reprieve from town noises. The movie theater was so close. We enjoyed Hiking at Hocking Hills which was only a 30 min drive by Highway (I would suggest heading up the visitor center for maps for the trails and roads in the area). We did have cell service at the campsite it was just very slow but thankfully we had some (Straight all wireless\Visable). There was firewood on site for donation. Surprisingly the bugs we're not bad at all even though it had just rained. We pulled the table underneath the big maple for cover when it started to sprinkle and it did great. It was a perfect shaded spot when weather turned hot too.
Jim and Michelle work quick to respond to any of our needs.

Great launching point for exploring the trails Baileys! I stayed 2 nights and got in 3 days of mountain biking. The location was convenient to the trails - 2 days I drove to the Chauncey-Dover trailhead and it was probably 10 minutes. The last day I drove up the road to park at the Utah Ridge Pond which was also maybe a 10 minute drive. You can ride the road up to the trails, but I wanted to save my climbing legs for the singletrack. Camp is primitive - so no running water - but the outhouse was clean and stocked with all you need. Plenty of trees for shade and hanging hammocks. I'll be back!

Thanks, Chris, come back any time! Maybe next time they will have the proposed trail complete that begins just a few hundred feet from camp.

This property is so convenient and peaceful. There’s on site trash, bathroom, and firewood. Super quiet, lockable, and Jim is super cool. It’s a very, very pleasant place to stay

Location couldn't be better!

This location was perfect for my husband and I in our van. The 2 sites were clean and very large (we only used one, but no one was at the other). The pit toilets were the nicest I've ever used. The grass was soft (thanks to the wet weather). The pea gravel around the picnic table & fire pit was great for soggy days. For a mtn & gravel bike trip the location couldn't have been better! Sure, it's a steep climb, but GREAT to be able to just leave camp & hit the trails or gravel road route.

Plenty of gravel parking for our vanDinner @ West MapleEntrance with chain/lockBikes taking a rest

Thanks, Melissa. You're welcome back any time. Not sure if it will be this year, but a proposed trail is supposed to cross a few hundred feet from camp. Unfortunately, you will still have to do some climbing, but next time it should be on single-track!
