We ended up with campsite 2, which was cute and very private at the edge of a forest of mature pines. The issues, however, are:
1) the large field where you have to park for site2 is unmowed. Guess what hides in high grass: ticks and chiggers?. In 2 days I got a bad case of chigger bites despite long pants and high socks the whole time.
2) There is no water source, no bathroom anywhere nearby and no picnic table. The table issue is not a big deal, but having no water pump for the whole place is not great. You have to be able to poop somewhere.
3) The nicest tent sites at the top of the hill are really not accessible unless you have a truck or at least 4-wheel drive, but the website never acknowledges this. I hope Jerry improves the road eventually so more travelers can get up the hill. It’s a beautiful piece of land with great potential.
It was ok
We stayed at Site 1:
The camp site was available and easy to get too.
It had a hiking trail attached.
It was very easy to navigate the farm
The store wasn’t open but we did utilize the self serve firewood
They set off fireworks close enough to the camp we could here them and people screaming
the road to get to the back campsites are gravel and can be hard to navigate unless you have a 4x4 vehicle.
It had potential the creek was cute, but the trail leading to the site was over grown and unable to access the site that way. We had to park in the Field and walk though the woods across a little creek. The grass was uncut and sort of high, we didn’t end up staying the night because the bugs were too much!
Rv site #1. great view and locatio
Unobstructed view of rolling hills and the stars popped at night. Hiking trail nearby, very clean portopotty down the hill, and great for us first time boondocking hipcampers! Our family had a great time and easy location to Hocking Hills/ ash cave (15-20min). Host was very quick to respond to any items. Cheers!
We stayed at site 4 and it was great! Privacy was perfect. We ran into the other campers on the hiking trail, but other than that we had a whole pine grove to ourselves. The port-a-potty was very clean, and the creek was nearby so we got our water from there (we brought a filter). Only issue we ran into were the ticks, so definitely do nightly tick checks and bring your high socks and shoes! Jerry was great - offered a lot of information and it was convenient to have the little store down the hill. Will camp here again next time!
Great location for hocking hiking
Overall, we had a great time camping for 3 nights here. The location of the property was perfect... 10-20 minutes to all the Hocking Hills trails.
Unfortunately, there were some issues. The host wasn't as clear or communicative with us as I would have liked... we were unsure if we were camping in the right location on the property, I had asked a few questions before arrival which went unanswered. The listing said that water was available at the Store on-site, and it was closed the entire time. The drive up the hill to the campsites needs to be graded and graveled... there was light rain one night/morning which caused a lot of mud on the hill. I spoke w 3+ people over the course of that day who either got stuck or couldn't get up the hill when they were arriving for their cabin/camp stay. I don't remember anything on the site saying you needed 4wd for this HipCamp. Luckily, we have AWD but others struggled. It seems as if the listing needs to be updated with current maps/photos/info.
Positives: The portapot was very clean! The host provided nice camp chairs at the site.
The property is beautiful. The road is a little rough, but they do tell you that in the description. They also had trash cans and porta-potties on site, which was a bonus. Nice and quiet.
They did have little cabins on their property, too. Would love to know how to rent one of those out!
