This is only a review for the campgrounds and fun center. The riverside campground is where we stayed and the campsites were clean and generous in size with beautiful views of the river. We were able to choose our own site, which was nice - we stayed at site 10. The staff at the fun center was friendly, knowledgeable and... More

We rent from Hocking Hills Adventures almost every time we visit Hocking Hills! The canoes and kayaks are comfortable, and the staff is fun. There are several trips to choose from. Trip 2 is a good length/time for us! On this latest trip, our driver, George, told us to keep an eye out for otters as they were storing up... More

Great guides and beautiful space. What's not to love? Definitely will revisit for the night tour which by all accounts may be a little creepy!

I spent the yesterday canoeing and putt putt golfing through Hocking Hills Adventures. We did canoe trip 1 which was five miles on the Hocking River. The trip took us about two hours. It was my first time canoeing so I was a little scared at first but the river was mostly shallow and I wore a life vest that... More

The people at the company assured me that a reservation wasn't required and sure enough, we were in the bus on our way to the drop off within about twenty minutes of arriving. Canoes and kayaks were in good repair and the information provided by the staff was pitched at the right level - not teaching to suck eggs, but... More

We had a group of 6 from 20 to 50 and we did the x-tour . This was the first time for all of us and we had a blast. We felt extremely safe and our guides Paige and ally were awesome!!!! We would recommend this x-tour to teens on up not difficult at all.just lots of fun!

We took canoe trip 1 and we had 7 adults and 2 kids (1 five year old and 1 two year old). First off that's one great thing about this place is that they're one of the only places that don't have an age requirement. Most other places we looked at wouldn't allow kids below 5 years and such.

On July 19th, my boyfriend and I went on the inner tubes down the river. The employees let us know that the normal hour and a half trip would take about 3 hours because of the low water levels. So, we ate a sandwich before we left to tide us over. The first half of the trip was great. It... More
