McKee Farm - Treehouses and Camping

14 sites 路 Lodging, RVs, Tents230 acres 路 Frazeysburg, OH
McKee Farm is rich in memories and rich in history. It has been in the family for over 150 years and we were told that it was one of stopping points for the underground railroad. The 240 acre farm boasts a hidden cave, wide open fields, breathtaking forest land, and historic and rustic barns. Nestled at the edge of a wooded creek, Tullihas in the Trees treehouse boasts a beautiful sunset view with rolling hills. Tullihas combines comfort with the thrill of being immersed in nature. Built using recycled electric poles, Tullihas in the Trees has a deck perfect for hammocking, an interior dressed with windows so that guests can feel as if they are living amongst the trees, and two small lofts ideal for a restful night's sleep. Oxley in the Woods is our newest treehouse cabin. Nestled in the woods with a view of the sunset, the lovely A Frame is filled with lovely woodwork, vintage parquet flooring, and private wooded views. The deck is huge! We've had guests set up a tent on the deck beside the treehouse for fun! Swings, and a slide make the Oxley a fun adventure. The double bed in the loft and the two stacked single beds are comfortable and cozy. The McKee Farmhouse was built in the 1800s and is rich in memories. It's a rustic old house, with wood trim, hardwood floors, and plenty of imperfections that make it unique. You can sit on the porch and drink your coffee with a view of the barn and pastures, or cozy up in one of the house's four bedrooms and sleep in. The house is fully air conditioned and heated, has all the amenities of home, but takes you back to a simpler time. Our campsites are all set apart from one another in various locations on the 240 acre farm. Secluded and unique, each campsite has its own charm. We provide guests with a fire ring and a shovel, and some sites have a picnic table. Hiking trails are marked throughout the land. Guests can hike with views of horses, cows, wildlife, corn fields, large boulders, and rustic barns. The dirt roads provide great places to drive ATVs and four-wheelers. An Amish farm borders McKee Farm. Guests should know there is minimal cell service, however, this can offer a great opportunity to unplug. Tullihas in the Trees provides a perfect remote and rustic getaway for anyone. In October and November, access to hiking is limited.

The best camping near Wayne National Forest guide

Overview

About

Explore The Wayne, located in southeastern Ohio and the only national forest in the state. A huge trail system in the forest offers hikers, horseback riders, and ATV enthusiasts room to roam. ATV trails make this a unique wilderness experience. Ride your ATV or horse exclusively from mid-December to mid-April without needing to worry about hikers on foot.

Head to Shawnee lookout tower for dynamic views of the surrounding countryside. This is the only original tower left in the forest from the 1930s. You can't go up in the tower, but its location is a fantastic place to see rolling hills and forests.

Walk across or under Irish Run Natural Bridge. This stone edifice measures 51 feet long, 19 feet wide, 16 feet thick, and 39 feet high. Stand with you and a group of people, because the bridge can support an entire group at once.

Stay at developed campgrounds near Iron Ridge or Oak Hill. Camp with your horse at Stone Church Horse Camp. Pack for the backcountry at Burr Oak Cove.
