We are located almost in the very center of Ohio, 4 miles from Interstate 71 in the country. Your getaway is on a 68-acre working farm that offers PYO food (during the growing season) & fresh eggs, primitive camping, hiking, fishing, with nature & homesteading activities. The large campsites are along the pond, alongside & in the woods, some open, some secluded. We like to play outside & have horseshoes, volleyball, & other games. There are no hookups for electricity or water, & no showers. We charge $12 per carload per night for tent camping, $18 for popups, $28 for small rvs. There is no addl. fees for extra people nor for dogs, holidays or peak season. Check in is at daybreak, check out is dusk. There is peace, quiet & nature here with dark starry nights & sounds of frogs & owls. You'll want a good supply of food & water as there are no stores, gas stations or fast food (ugh) places for 4 miles. We do have a small camp store with essentials and supplies. Nearby is the Heart of Ohio trail (hiking/biking), the Kokosing water trail (canoeing/kayaking), and 2 state parks with swimming beaches. For more information, we are on the web & feel free to like us on Facebook! We regularly post music festivals and Listening Room Concerts from traveling musicians. On holiday weekends, we plan scavenger hunts, contests for fishing, horseshoes & cornhole, game days and enjoy potluck dinners. In the event of severe storms & lightening, we always open the big pole barn up for immediate cover where you can enjoy board games or play with musical instruments such as a washtub bass, washboards, cowbells, small drums & glockenspiel. There's been construction & rebuilding of a local bridge in the area, and you can find exact directions on our website. Thanks for looking! Hope to see you in the great outdoors!

The vibe at Grins & Pickin's CampFarm - tents

Perfect quick get away spot. Easy checkin, plenty of space and very clean portable potties. We went on an impulse hoping to get to see the Perseid meteor shower and it worked out great.
My 5-year-old son and I visited last weekend. We were both quite impressed. Spacious well-maintained campsites and hassle-free check-in / check-out. We arrived around 5:30 on Saturday and didn't leave until 4:00 pm Sunday. My son got to visit the chickens and ducks and we got to spend a little time pulling some pan fish out of the pond.
Things to do:
Return with adult friends to check out a festival!
Return with my family for a few days of R&R!
We felt more than welcome and enjoyed the peaceful serenity that is synonymous with Grins & Pickens!
This is a fantastic place to camp! Super quiet, pretty well secluded, and a really nice view. The homeowner was super hospitable and checked in with us. They also knew we wanted privacy, so they left us alone for the most part. I would highly recommend this place. I can't wait to go back.
Excellent Service! The lady managing the location went to an extra effort to contact me to let me know about an event occurring at the time of my booking. She had an eye out for our arrival and flagged us down when she saw we seemed a bit lost and confused. The property was clean. Each tent spot had it own fire pit. Very happy and will return here again soon!
Easy to follow directions. Arrived just in time to catch one of the most beautiful sunsets we have ever seen! Port-a-potty toilet was very clean and the hosts were very nice. We were able to see stars all night and even the Milky Way which was amazing!! Sad we only had a few hours to enjoy this place since we had to leave very early.
We cannot say enough wonderful things about this lovely place with such an awesome host, Christy was the best!!! We extended our stay and would have liked to have stayed even longer! My husband and I were moving out of our apartment to then camp for the summer before finding a new place to live and the first stop for us was here to also celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. However our apartment move out didn’t go smoothly and our arrival times/dates were delayed but hipcamp, and Christy especially, were so accommodating and incredible! During a stressful time in our lives Christy was so awesome, and this wonderful place gave us some peace and time for reflection before moving on. I would recommend this place to everyone, it rocks! And to boot you get to feel away from it all and see the stars but a nice little town with everything else you may need is just 4 or so miles down the road!
