They've been open for 35 years and you can tell no improvements have been made. We stayed at the canoe livery. The bathrooms were a mess and very far from our campground. There's barely any roads. When we checked in they said go find a site and that was it. There's a back end of the sites that say 4x4... More

Our family of 18 took a canoe trip (trip 2) at Hocking Hills Adventures on Saturday July 19th. All of the employees were friendly and the process of checking in went very smoothly. We all had a great time and felt that this activity was a great value. We would recommend this company to anyone wanting to canoe in the... More

This was our third time camping at the riverside campground. This is by far the best spot to camp in the Hocking Hills region. The staff patrol the are and pick up trash and the sites are very nice. I would recommend booking more than a week out and reserve a spot you like. The staff listened to my needs... More

A group of four of us, almost senior citizens, took trip 2 on a very busy Saturday. I was amazed at how busy they were and yet were so friendly and accommodating to us. It was definitely a throwback to a simpler time, enjoying the beautiful scenery, and no pressure to rush through the trip. Although we had no 'guide'... More

This place seems really busy. All the staff was wonderful and helpful even though I was asking about other places in Hocking Hills. There prices were even cheaper than the competition. They were knowledgeable of the tourism items. When I asked about what attractions were around, they not only told me about them, they also directed me to them.

Remember to that this is an outdoor trip with water dry bags are a necessity as are shoes that can get wet and muddy.... More

My family & I choose the 5 mile canoe trip. After we paid, they loaded us up in an old van to take us to the starting point of our trip. The side door didn't work so we all had to climb over the front seat. There weren't enough seat belts or even seats for that matter & my 9... More

First and foremost let me say I am sorry you had a bad experience with us. We strive to provide a safe fun and memorable experience to everyone. When that does not happen we are always disappointed. We do keep staff on the landing and it is unfortunate you lost your valuables on the river. I'm not why the staff... More

If your looking for a perfectly clean and super kept up campgrounds go to the KOA. If you want a nice primitive camping experience right on the Hocking River with huge campsites opt for the riverside camping with Hocking Hills Adventures. Yes the showers are a half mile walk but all you have to do is jump in the car... More

Even on an incredibly crowded and hectic Memorial Day weekend, the staff helped us have a wonderful canoe trip. We did trip 2, but with the high river, we should have done trip 3 since we got done so quickly. The staff really kept it together in the chaos.

Thank you so much for your kind words. It is very much appreciated. Starting in the winter we work hard to prepare for Memorial Day Weekend. A-lot of goes into making sure the buses run properly, the trailer lights work, the drop landings are clear. It is great to know we did our job! Thank you and come again More
