 ⛺️Located 3 miles east of Ohio's largest state park, Salt Fork, sits the beautiful property of Vista Venue's and Salt Fork Riding Stables in Winterset. 

🌳 This location has been a primitive campsite for over 30 years and we are so excited to host you! Bigfoot AKA "The Ohio Grassman" has allegedly been spotted, heard, and captured on film at this very spot! 

💫 When you're not encountering Bigfoot, enjoy pure peace as you are surrounded by 400 acres of beautiful woods, roughly 40 miles of trails, and the perfect spot to star gaze in total privacy.

NOTE:  You will have to go down a trail off of the main driveway to access the campsite. 2 wheel drive vehicles should take extra caution, especially if it has been raining for several days the trail could be slick and soft in spots so please travel at your own risk and caution.  The trail is highly maintained to ensure safe travels, but just know it is not an actual road.  The trail is more than wide enough to drive a full size truck and camper down.  If you do not have a camper and do not mind a 5 - 10 minute walk, you may park at the trails entrance or contact me ahead of time before you arrive I would be more than happy to take you with a vintage tractor and beautiful wagon.

Very peaceful and relaxing camp site. Lots of space and not a lot going on. My crossover SUV made the drive down the trail easily. Very helpful hosts that responded quickly and were able to provide extra firewood for me. Looking forward to staying here again with friends!

I enjoyed my secluded campsite and the trail back to the site. Perfect for my Jeep Overlanding camp location.

A secluded, private, peaceful, and beautiful campsite. It has plenty of space, a fire pit, charcoal grill, folding chairs, and an outhouse. Plus there are scenic trails, horses, and a few ponds. The campsite also has nice shade. We elected to park at the trailhead rather than drive-in. Our Toyota Highlander would have made it, but we were concerned about getting a flat tire from thorns/Multiflora Rose that grows along tree lines and paths in Ohio. It's about a 1/4 mile walk to the campsite from the main gravel drive. We didn't get a chance to meet the hosts, but found everything we needed during our time there. If you get a chance to eat burgers at 360 Burgers in nearby Cambridge we recommend it!

This is absolute gem to find for an awesome private, primitive camping site. It is very private, tucked away, with miles and miles of hiking trail(s) in the woods. The area we picked to camp was under an umbrella of trees that provide excellent shade to keep the site nice and cool, but another opening a 20-30 yards away for awesome views of the sky if it is a clear evening. My family and I like to camp in private locations and be able to roam around far with our dogs without seeing anyone during our camp. This is a place we can do that! The road into the site is a little tough, may be difficult for a 2WD, but should be doable; but that is just how we like it. This is a top pick for me and for my family. It fit exactly what we were looking for. Got lucky with this find! High-highly recommend!
