The scenic, picturesque landscape of Hocking Hills, Ohio provides more than just a relaxing, romantic, private getaway for couples. Located in the rolling landscape of southeast Ohio, the area offers its visitors plenty of outdoor adventures. The Blackhand sandstone that populates the area has created a stunning mix of topographical wonders such as cliffs, gorges, rock shelters and waterfalls.
With so much to explore, you won’t know where to start. Visitors to the area return again and again—never experiencing the same scenic adventure more than once. Each of the ten Hocking Hills State Parks offer its own style of adventure and beauty. Witness how nature and time worked together to delicately carve Old Man’s Cave, Ash Cave, Cantwell Cliffs, Cedar Falls, Conkle’s Hollow and the Rock House out of solid layers of rock.
Visit the Hocking State Forest and wander through some of the lush, green forestry that covers nearly 10,000 acres. And, if you consider that impressive, come see us during autumn, when the trees are illuminated in brilliant shades of reds, ambers, golds and fiery oranges—some of nature’s finest works of art, found right here in southeast Ohio.
Take a relaxing canoe trip down the Hocking River. Let the horse do the walking with a horseback ride. Or, if you really want to ride in style, go for an historic train ride—there are small towns to visit along the way.
If shopping is your cup of tea, Hocking Hills doesn’t disappoint. In town and scattered throughout the area are dozens of treasure-filled antique stores, craft shops and galleries exhibiting works from local artists. There are activities to match everyone’s particular style.
With so much to keep you busy while visiting us, you’ll need to re-energize at one of the many area restaurants. You have many options to choose from: a family-style meal, fine dining at one of the area inns, a chef-prepared dinner cooked right in your cabin or, if you only want light fare, you can grab a gourmet coffee at one of the local quaint coffee shops. There truly is something for everyone here in the hills.
Plan your visit to Hocking Hills, and we will help you make it memorable. When all is said and done, we bet you’ll agree that you can “Leave the Hocking Hills, but the Hocking Hills can never leave you.”
