Hocking Hills State Park is located in Hocking County in Southeastern Ohio. Frequently noted as one of the most beautiful and majestic areas in the state, the park is home to numerous caves, lakes, and natural landmarks. Hocking Hills State Park offers acres of forest, miles of hiking, and hundreds of campsites in six main hiking areas: Old Man's Cave, Rock House, Ash Cave, Cedar Falls, Cantwell Cliffs, and Conkles Hollow. Hiking, however, is only part of the fun.
The park offers year-round programs for nature lovers of all ages and experience levels. Guided winter hikes, lantern tours, guided and unguided bird watching events, Ornithology courses, and a photo competition which awards over $7,000 in prizes are just some of the additional activities offered.
Furthermore, beautiful hotels and fully furnished cabins are available for those who seek a bit of home away from home while enjoying their stay. Hocking Hills Dining Lodge also provides a comfortable gathering place and meals for all budgets in a rustically adorned setting complete with fireplaces and large windows from which to enjoy the wildlife.
For these reasons and many more, Hocking Hills State Park is a perfect destination for anyone who seeks to enjoy nature in a safe and family friendly setting.
