Our campsite is 5 acres nestled in a small hollow of the Appalachian foothills in beautiful southwestern Ohio.Surrounded on 3 sides by a small creek is a small Viking/ fantasy village. The campsites are in secluded clearings each with space for a 4 person tent and its own fire ring.they are situated around the main field which contains our 60 foot longhall and large communal fire pit.within the longhall is a kitchen containing a 4 ring burner there is also a 5 burner gas grill if barbaqueing is your thing.
Also on the site are other Viking/fantasy buildings,an 18 foot diameter yurt,a 16 foot Viking wedge tent,2 small lodges,a screened in bar and even a medieval war wagon.
The recently completed shower house is a beautiful thing to behold,hot water and cedar lined
The main area of the camp is ideal for just kicking back and watching the wildlife during the day and on clear nights the amazing star laden sky.there is plenty of space for lawn games including kube,cornhole and horseshoes.
The field is close enough to the Appalachian highway ( state route 32) for convenience but far enough not to be bothered by it.The area is steeped in Native American culture in fact the world famous Serpent Mound is but 8 miles away,with many other Adena culture sites within easy driving distance.Its also in the heart of the Amish community
The area is known for its natural beauty with many hiking trails and canoeing opportunities.

The vibe at Tent Camp at Viking Longhall
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was my first Hipcamp experience so I didn't know what to expect, but I was blown away by the beauty of the property and the graciousness of the host, David and his partner Iveagh. It was pretty easy finding the place with help from David's directions. Upon arrival he gave my wife and I a tour of their property. The Viking Longhall is impressive along with the yurts and other facilities they've built. We camped for a couple nights right next to a running stream which surrounds the property. David provided coffee in the morning, plenty of drinking water and wood for a campfire. We got the peace and quiet we love about camping without all the noisy neighbors you get at a big campground. It was a great experience and hope to go back soon.
The stay was better than expected. The hosts are so friendly and make sure you are comfortable with anything you need. We planned on camping and being self sufficient so we didn’t need too much, but if we forgot anything, there was ample resources provided. - Bug spray, dishes, paper towels, dish towels, trash cans, etc. David brought coffee in the morning which was really nice.
The creek was just steps away and provided such a soothing sound. It was a really neat place and we will be back!
