 Summer is upon us, and it’s time to plan for your next action-packed, fun-filled getaway. Hocking Hills Adventures in Hocking Hills, Ohio, has everything you need to satisfy everyone in your family. Grab your tent or book a cabin and let the memories begin on this charming 200-acre property.

The cabins, built by Amish craftsmen, offer exquisite accommodations. There is a cabin sure to satisfy even the pickiest, whether you want all the comforts of home or a more rustic feel with basic amenities.

 

Primitive campsites are at the Riverside Campground and are the most popular. Many sites have a captivating view of the Hocking River and are spacious. Each site includes a picnic table and a fire ring allowing for many conversations and memories to begin by sitting around an open flame. Electric campsites are available ‌on a pastoral hillside and also include a picnic table and campfire.

 

The beautiful Hocking River is best enjoyed by canoe or kayak. The river is a winding tributary of the Ohio River with breathtaking views. You can expect to see great rock formations, foliage, and wildlife along your excursion. Excursions last between two to five hours.

 

On the Natural Rockbridge Trip, you will paddle across the river from the launch site, park your boat on shore and take a very short hike to the Natural Rock Bridge, which is a naturally created rock formation resembling a bridge. It is more than 100 feet long, 10 to 20 feet wide and arches 50 feet across a ravine.

 

The Crockett’s Run River Trip is a gentler course for parents with young children, beginners, or those who may be anxious about canoeing for the first time. This trip is a 5-mile stretch, and the river runs slower at this point. As you paddle down the river you may want to stop at one of the sandbars or islands and explore a little of nature or enjoy your lunch surrounded by trees and fields.

Looking for a little more adventure? Stop along the river for the night and gaze up to see the magnificent twinkling stars. See it you can spot the milky way, the north star or the little and big dipper. Allow the moon to be your light throughout the night.

Grab a tube and float with ease downstream on the Hocking Hills Tubing Trip. Take a moment and close your eyes and allow the worries of the World to flow downstream and your senses to take over. Listen to the variety of birds chirping, smell the fresh outdoors, feel the sun shining down on your soul and enjoy the scenic views. This adventure is about 5 miles and takes around 2 to 3 hours.

Once you have finished your voyage down the river be sure to stop by the family fun center. Take on each other as you zip around the figure eight go-kart track. It is sure to bring many laughs as you try to race for the finish line.

Grab a putter and try your luck at some miniature golf with their 18-hole course. Watch out for any tunnels or obstacles as it makes it a little more challenging to get the ball in. See who can get a hole in one or have the lowest score to win.

If you are a gamer, then you will want to stop by the classic 80s game room, featuring pinballs, video games, a 16-foot bowler, and pool tables. Check out the splash pad as it is a great way for the kiddos to cool off, or maybe they need to release some extra energy on the bouncy jump pad.

The family fun center is the perfect location to host group outings, family get-togethers, company picnics, birthday parties and more. There is also a large grassy area for your party games, picnic table pavilions and a sand volleyball court. It is a place where laughter and fun will be remembered for years.

Hocking Hills Adventures is the original tourist recreational destination business to be established in Hocking County and has been providing fun for everyone since 1976. They have been operating under the same owners for 40 years. For more planning and pricing, check out their website https://hockinghillscanoeing.com/.
