Full hook up, but sets are close in a very popular campground. East side sets had pads that sloped to back....hard to level with my blocks plus some borrowed. Pool looked nice, office/store was ok, bathrooms were a mess. Park served as a base for all the great trails, though. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

All the trails...O l d Man`s Cave, Ash Cave, Cedar Falls, Rose Lake, etc. All are incredible-and in the heart of Ohio! Weather was in the 90`s, but trails thru woodlands pleasant. Looked at the burnt remains of the Lodge...very sad. There are 40 cabins that look well maintained.

This is a large campground with a percentage of walk in sites. This state park is popular even throughout the week but there were still a number of sites to choose from. Our site (#11) was able to get satellite signal and the asphalt was level enough to not put pads down. The restrooms are really lacking in capacity for this park...our walk in loop just had pit toilets (which badly needed emptying) and it was a very long walk to the nearest shower facility, which was by the state park's public pool. They weren't very clean. Laundry room is also in this shower facility. Verizon signal weak but usable. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park is great for hiking and biking. We found a paved trail to Lodge Road, which takes you to the trailhead for the new Hemlock Bridge/WhisperingCave trail. Lots of strenuous hiking with breathtaking gorges and scenery, well worth the visit.

Very busy and lots of people. Great place for family fun but if you are looking for a quiet campground this is not quiet. Excellent service at camp store/registration. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Here's our take of the park itself: the people at the park HQ were super friendly and very helpful with all my questions about hikes in the area. The showers by the pool were nice , but sometimes had a lengthy wait to get into one of the 3 shower stalls. , laundry right next to the showers were very nice as well and we didn't have any trouble using the machines. The pool was nicely maintained and the kids really enjoyed spending their afternoons here after hiking. Cons: this park isn't really equipped to handle some of the modern RV's. The sites are tough to maneuver with the large rigs, and just wasn't a good fit. The roads just getting here are curvy, hilly grades with switchbacks and twists along the way. One you turn into the park , and check in at the office, you must again travel up more curvy and twisty road to get to the sites. One lesson we learned once we got there, I had booked an rv site with electric only. My mistake for not paying closer attn that we didn't have water hookups, so when we inquired about it, they said the water was at the bottom of the park back where the office was, so my husband had to the make the trip again to fill our tank. Sites are almost all uneven, some more than others. Which I'm surprised that some spots they even allowed Rvs into knowing just how sloped the pavement was. The ATT signal was non existent so no wifi all week, which really was not a deal breaker for us. But I did hear that some people got Verizon in certain areas. The bathhouse near the electric sites were much to be desired , so that's why we ended up using the ones at the pool area. The park does well with tents and smaller rv' s and trailers. But the fit is just hard with the larger ones and feels a little sandwiched in once you finally get in there. The hiking in the area was top notch and was the high light of our trip. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart was 12 miles through twisty roads, but still we felt it was an ok drive with the convinence of it nearby, just not at night. The hiking trail heads were also centralized around the park, about a 10 minute drive (give or take) to almost all of them.

We are a 45 ft MH with toad. The drive on 664 was slow, windy, sharp turns, no shoulder, no room for errors! The drive up the hill to the campsites in the park was not much better. HUGE SHOULDER SIDE POTHOLE on the exit side. Disconnected our toad at the office area. Only potable water is at the office area. We called for reservations to be certain we'd fit. We were approved for site 116 in the Electric only (FHU had no availability). We needed a shoe horn to get into it, fellow campers helped guide us in. It was a horribly unlevel site. Tow was parked on grass area. To get in the sites you have to drive past your site and turn around at the playground and come back. The next day we moved to a slightly more level site in the FHU area for the next 4 nights. To back in FHU sites, you have to drive down around the water tower and come back to your site. We just fit, tow was on mud/gravel/grass (?) next to us. We used boards and jacks to get within 3" of level. MH felt like the 'slanting house' fun spot. We have been camping for over 30 years and never seen water hook ups like they have here. Learned something new! The FHU area has newer W/S/E and picnic table patios. 99% of the sites need a complete overhaul to make them level. The main road coming in needs repair and a shoulder. We suggest they add speed bumps or something to slow people down-some child or pet is going to get killed! We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Great Caves and hiking trails.Late spring storms filled the streams and fueled the waterfalls! Walk lower gorge trail in the Conkle's Hollow State Nature Preserve. Great 4 mile mtn bike area in the SP.Ride the Hockhocking Adena Linear trail in Athens.Brewery 33 in Logan has great craft beer.Good Verizon cell and our own Mifi signal.We would consider coming back but would look for a campsite closer to town and drive out to the parks.

We made our first trip to Hocking Hills and the adjoining state park over Easter weekend. While the area and the natural features are indeed very impressive the campground is significantly less so. We have stayed at quite a number of the Ohio state parks and Hocking Hills ranks among our least favorite. With that said we would stay again only because we loved the park. The hiking and natural beauty is unmatched in Ohio and rivals some of what you will find in more well known parts of the country. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Begin looking for the roadside firewood vendors as soon as you exit the interstate. There are a few but none right near the campground entrance. Visit Grandma Fae's for supplies and little knick knacks - its a fun little spot.

We camped in a full hookup site for 3 nights. Having used our own bathroom facilities I cannot rate those, but I was told they were clean and well kept. Wonderful walking trails for the adventurous with beautiful views. Our site was paved and level, but got muddy off the pavement when it rained. Fortunately the picnic table was on a concrete pad, so the mud was easy to avoid. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed 2 nites in an electric only site as that was all that was left. Site was fairly level but still needed a few blocks under the rear wheels. Electric was satisfactory. Water stations were plentiful throughout the park on the back of water fountains. Dump station got a little crowded at times. Park was clean and restrooms were the typical outdoor brick houses with pit toilets. Thte bath house by the pool was very clean and well appointed. The Lodge restaurant was FANTASTIC! Great food and decent prices. I would come back just to eat. Pools at the campground and the lodge looked great but we didn't get a chance to use them. Great hiking and scenery abounds. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

A nice state park, but you have to be selective with site choice because the park wasn't originally designed for today's modern units. The parking pads can accommodate most rigs, but not a toad or tow vehicle. Our camper fit, but we parked our tow vehicle in grass next to camper. There is a nice pool in the campground and the showers by the pool were updated and nice. The hiking trails here were spectacular at this state park (most hiking attractions / points of interest require you to drive to other areas within the park unless you are an extreme hiker and want to hike miles to get to the highlights). We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We had Site 117, it was not level in any direction, very sloped. The area for table and fire ring was very sloped so not that usable. Sites were very close, electric only. Our site kept tripping off the 30 amp breaker so had to use an adapter and use the 50 amp outlet. There was only one water fill station that leaked more than it pumped to your rig. We usually like state park campgrounds but we left here after the first night. They charged $10 to process a refund for the remaining nights. We could have moved but no other sites available. Not impressed with Ohio State Park Campgrounds. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed 4 days in mid Oct. and had a wonderful time. The people working the camp office were friendly and very helpful. Our site was large compared to most of the other sites in this park. It was somewhat unlevel with a slope to the pad from front to rear but leveling the trailer is easily doable. Also the site itself -but not the pad- was quite sloped down to the fire ring picnic table area where it became fairly level. On the south side of the site -the awning side- was a stand of woods offering some seclusion from the next campsite and to the north the next site is quite close. Behind our site was a heavily wooded forest the we enjoyed exploring and hiking. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Tent Trailer.

If you stay at this park you must hike the Old Man's Cave trails. It is one of the most visited and photographed areas of Ohio and for good reason -it is BEAUTIFUL. Ash Cave, Cantwell Cliffs, Conkles Hollow, and Rock House are nearby and also worth seeing, but the Old Man's Cave Trail is right next to the campground. Our site was about 200 yards from the Gorge Overlook Trail.

Our site was on the loop by the water tower. It was big enough for a 34 foot 5th wheel and truck. We had a paved site that was nearly level and easy to back in to. They have only one bath house, and the site I picked was a long distance away (there are pit toilets nearer). Some of us drove to it; other hiked to it. The bath house was clean, but the design could have been better. It did not channel the water well and it got all over the place. It is a big campground with many kids who didn't always keep things as tidy as they might have. All in all it was nice enough and we had a pleasant time. Hocking Hills is a series of 6 different small parks; you generally drive from venue to another. You can walk from one to the other, but they are miles apart. The brochures brag so highly that I was let down a bit. It is a very nice attraction, but I expected so much that it couldn't live up to my expectations. I would go back again with more reasonable expectations. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location for visiting the Hocking Hills scenic trails; in fact, Old Man's Cave Trail & parking lot is right next door. Good-sized campsites throughout the park. There are no water hook-ups, however some of the sites are next to the water tap and you can do a quick fill-up of your tank with a hose. Lots of trees behind most sites to provide some privacy. Some sites pads were on a slope due to the terrain. Visitors are allowed in for free which is a nice feature. Pools weren't yet open when we were there but looked inviting and clean. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wanted to update this park since the latest update is rather old. We spent 4 days at Hocking Hills. It was a return outing after a 35 year absence. The rate reflects a 50% Ohio senior discount (Sunday-Thurs) The park has seen some improvements in the last 30 years, however, the sites are still close together, there are large drop-off spaces from the pads to the ground. That is an accident waiting to happen! The pads are OK for a popup and car, but unit larger would be a challenge to accommodate both. Most had a slight slope to the pads. The restrooms were typical SP issue with a quantity of bugs sharing all spaces. The restrooms were cleaned daily, but some of the faucets did not work correctly, and there were no HOOKS to hang your clothes, towel, etc. Hiking trails are the high point, however, staying on the trails is a must. Massive drop in height if you don't. There was a swimming pool at the campground, but not open while we were there (guards were in school) and was scheduled to close on Labor Day. Staff was helpful and polite. We were allowed to pick our site prior to registration. We camped at Hocking Hills State Park in a Tent Trailer.
