Enjoy the unique experience of communal camping in a Viking Longhall. Situated on 5 acres surrounded on three sides by a picturesque creek this 60'x30' building contains 18 sleeping berths on 2 levels. This is probably one of the more unique listings you will find on Hipcamp. The Viking Longhall offers a one of a kind venue for a variety of group gatherings be it a wedding, a birthday celebration, a family re-union, a larping adventure, a gaming arena, an educational or crafting retreat, symphomium.....in fact anytime a group want a large communal gathering place.The hall features 18 8'x4' sleeping Berths each containing a twin mattress, 9 berths on ground level and 9 on the upper floor (4 reachable by stairs and 5 by ladder only). The upper floor has an 15'x8' meeting room with large table and bench seating for 12. Also on the upper floor a second communal area/ extra sleeping area again 15'x8'.The ground floor has a kitchen/ meal preparation area with all the kitchen utensils and supplies you may need.cooking is done on a 4 ring burner, or outside grill, or fire pit.A large open communal area some 40'x15' with 10 tables and bench type seating for up to 40. There is also a breezeway area approximately 16'x10' leading to the large double doors. There is a wrap around porch attached to the building.The campsite itself is 5 acres surrounded on 3 sides by wood covered cliffs. It is in one of the many hollows and has a very private secluded feel. The grounds contains number of other features......a large communal fire ring with ample bench seating, ideal for dancing and drumming. A small tiki bar (screened) next to the creek. There is also a large canopied dining area 30'x 8' with seating for about 40 and a small screen house for morning coffee etc. A shower house with on demand hot water, an outhouse and a large tree house viewing platform.The surrounding area is seeped in Native American culture with the world famous Serpent Mound being only 7 miles away and fort hill within short driving distance.Adams county contains 22 hiking trails, maps and guides for which we can supply. The area is also close to a 6 mile wide meteor impact crater so it is of interest to geologists.The night sky can be quite amazing with little light pollution.There are quite a few varieties of birds and plants and deer can quite often be seen grazing from the viewing platform that looks out across nearby fields.Although there is no electricity supply to the campground a 2000 watt quite generator is available which is enough to power lights and small electronics. Speaking of which there is almost no cell phone reception and no wi-fi, some find this a blessing and some an inconvenience, although a short walk will get your phone connected.Further images of the campground and its amenities can be seen from our other listings, yurt at Viking longhall, creek side cottage and tent camp at Viking Longhall. We also have a Facebook page, Viking Longhall Campground, although we would prefer to contact us with any questions directly through hipcamp.com.A variety of decorations and lighting are available at an extra charge.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Longhall! It’s the coolest place nestled in the woods surrounded by a peaceful creek. David brought us coffee each morning and made sure we had everything we needed. They are the sweetest couple with a unique outdoor experience. Highly recommend.
