The Blue Heron Rustic Cabin is perfect for campers who want the outdoor adventure experience without pitching a tent. Amenities include refrigerator, microwave, grill, picnic table, and fire ring.
If you’re looking for a penthouse suite with 24/7 room service, well, you won’t find it here. But then again, we’re a company for outdoor adventurers — that kind of pampering just isn’t our style. We don’t want our chocolate laid out on our pillows; we want it sandwiched between two graham crackers with a roasted marshmallow! We offer cozy cabins built by Amish craftsmen as well as a variety of campsite options. Electric hook ups are available at the Family Fun Center. The Riverside and Canoe Livery Campgrounds are ideal for those who prefer to camp in a pristine natural setting. Browse our lodging options below and book your rental online today!
Reservations require 100% prepayment. Reservations require a two-night minimum on weekends and three nights on holiday weekends.
Although reservations make the check-in process easier for camping, walk-ins are still accepted if campsites are available. We understand that sometimes unexpected circumstances come up and cancellations become necessary. It is our policy to grant refunds minus a $10 processing fee if notified 7 days prior to arrival date. If cancelled within 7 days of arrival date, you will be offered the opportunity to reschedule. The chance to reschedule expires after one year.
Campground sites are first come, first served unless the feature “site guarantee” is selected on the online reservation. The site guarantee allows the guest to select a site, and if available, Hocking Hills Adventures will reserve the site. If a customers makes a reservation less than three days prior to their arrival date, the site guarantee is not available and they will abide by the first come, first served policy.
Making a reservation guarantees a spot at your chosen campground. You will be able to pick your site upon arrival.
Cancellations made after your reservation will receive a full refund less $10 if made 14 days prior to reservation. Dates can be rebooked at no additional charge. Cancellations made within the 14 days of your reservation will receive a gift certificate good for future use.
