Camping at Hidden in the Hocking Hills was very peaceful. Caleb greeted us right when we arrived, had a map of the property and provided us with information on local activities. We were able to drive right up to where we pitched our tent. A fire ring had been left from the campers before, which came in handy for cooking hot dogs and s'mores later in the night. I would highly recommend camping at Hidden in the Hocking Hills.

This wasn't what we expected. The camp sites were wide open fields , with the road running in front, but we found a corner in the last field, with the river running behind us and it was wonderful!
The options for camping here are endless. Stay in the fields or hike up into the forest and look over the entire area. Hiked the logging trails, washed in the stream and built a fire circle. Thank you Caleb!!

Host was awesome, navigating and finding the best spot was a little tricky. Markers would have been very helpful!

This is a great place for the right person/group, but wasn't quite what we were hoping for.

PROS:
--Hosts were wonderfully responsive and laid back.
--Location is great for exploring the Hocking Hills region.
--LOTS of space for camping. NOT a noisy, cramped campground.
--Could accommodate a very large group indeed.
--Tons of flexibility on use of the space.
--Free tap water at the hosts' nearby house.
--Free wood if you're willing to cut/use old branches, downed trees, etc.

Things to be aware of (could be CONS for you):
--Not sure what the "bathe in stream" part of the listing is referring to. There's a small stream, but it is very shallow, full of silt, and we suspected had a lot of agricultural runoff.
--Although parts are forested, they can be very difficult to access during the summer because of the very dense undergrowth.
--The mowed strip around the field is fine for a high-profile SUV, but not a good fit for a standard-profile car. In wet weather, I would worry about getting out of there without a higher-profile 4WD vehicle.

The reason this didn't quite work for us is that we were looking for a bit of a "unicorn," camping-wise, in which my sons could build a crude shelter while I set up a tent nearby for my use and backup for them. We thought this place would work well -- and indeed the hosts would have been totally fine with that -- but forest areas near the fields were impassibly dense.

It's very quiet out there and almost no people when we went. Small stream worked perfect to keep my daughter occupied while I set up camp. Fire wood is free if you are okay with hiking around to find it. I would definitely camp here again.

Our stay at the Altenbrauch Farm was more than pleasing! With not really knowing what to expect exactly, upon our arrival we were set at ease with the host and the beautiful land surrounding. The area was very open, taken care of, and inviting. Plus, Caleb had a packet of activities close to the site which were more than handy at the time! Would definitely check it out if you're looking for a quiet and freeing campsite.
