The Hocking Hills KOA is conveniently located near many of the popular sites in the Hocking Hills region. The campground offers primitive to full hook-up sites.  All full hook-up sites are pull thru, as are many water/electric sites. There are also four camping cabins and three deluxe cabins with kitchen/bath/air. The campground has laundry, WiFi, grocery and propane sales. The campstore has a reasonable amount of camping supplies, basic food items, and souvenirs (a nice selection of OSU Buckeye gear).  Firewood is available at the campstore.  We opted for the three bundle pack which included kindling and a firestarter.  The firewood is reasonably priced but difficult to get started. We heard a good amount of sizzle indicating it was newer wood. Once you get it going, though, it burns long.  The campground is open April 1 to November 1.

Appearance: The campground is well maintained and has appealing landscaping with flower planters and well-groomed grassy areas.  The interior roads are all gravel and in good condition.  The sites are also gravel and have level gravel areas for the picnic table.  Many of the sites have significant sloping areas, particularly around the firepits.  We were able to find a pretty level site (#52).  The sites are fairly spacious and we did not feel cramped.  The campground is nicely wooded with many of the sites having significant shade. Word to the wise – the road into the campground is narrow, steep, and extremely bumpy.  It is passable but tends to be annoying as you come and go for sightseeing.

Area Attractions:

Hocking Hills is a wonderful location for avid hikers and outdoorsmen.  Whether you enjoy fishing, ziplining, horseback riding, ATVs, or having a picnic lunch in the woods – Hocking Hills offers them all.  We enjoyed hiking the upper rim trail at Ash Cave.  If you have dogs we recommend staying on the lower rim trail which has less of the  rocky cliff overhangs and steep climbs found on the upper rim trail.  The Old Man’s Cave location in the Hocking Hills State park is just minutes away from the KOA campground and has a lengthy and challenging hike. Be sure to take the trail to see Cedar Falls.  What a beautiful area!  Visitors will also want to check out the Christmas Treasures Shop which offers hundreds of those “one of a kind” ornaments year round.

Family/Pet Friendly:

There is a nice playground,  a basic putt-putt course, basketball court,horseshoes,and very nice heated pool (no hot tub). There are several activities for families to enjoy including themed weekends.  On our stay there was a haunted walk where guests were treated to some local ghost stories and a walk around Collision cemetery.  Kids will enjoy the gem mine, large game room, and smore time held up by the campstore.Breakfast is offered in the game room on weekends and proceeds benefit KOA Care Camp that helps send children fighting cancer to camps.

There is a fenced in dog park that is moderately sized. There is room for them to expand if they ever decide to dedicate the money to do so. There is a nice one mile birding trail that we enjoyed walking with the dogs.

Restrooms/Showers:

 

The bathhouse located near the front of the campground is very nice, updated and clean.  The showers were decent sized (the dressing area was ample but the shower felt tight)  The showers had good water pressure and the water was good and hot. One downside to this campground is that there is only one shower house.  Campers near the back of the park do have access to porta-potties which is good considering it is a good trek to the bath house at the front.  It would be worthwhile for this campground to add another shower house in the future.
