We have been coming here for at least 5 or 6 years. Always welcoming and lots of fun things to do. Thank you for being so friendly and visiting all of our campers, we truly appreciate the hospitality. See you again next year!!

The lake for fishing was great. Pool was in a decent walk distance and clean. They placed a slip n slide to go in the lake for all to enjoy for a certain time frame. The low bikes you can rent was a great hit for our 10 and 16 yr old plus a game room (they are trying to... More

On a return trip from Goshen, IN to North Carolina, we traveled on Hwy. 33 - road is OK and 4-lanes at some points. Finding an RV park is NOT OK! We struggled throughout the day attempting to locate an over night stay. There were not even any Walmarts along the rural route! As afternoon began to fade into evening... More

It's too bad you didn't enjoy your stay and wouldn't return unless out of desperation, because we do have a nice campground. To put things into perspective, you did call on a Friday of one of our Halloween themed weekends looking for a pull thru site for that same evening for one night. We had 2 30 amp pull thru... More

We stayed at Happy Hills just this last weekend (October 10-12th) to celebrate our anniversary. We wanted to explore the Hocking Hills, and chose one of the cabins for our stay. When we first arrived, the check-in went very smooth and the people at the front desk were very friendly and made us feel very welcomed. The cabin and site... More

We stayed at Happy Hills in late September, technically after the official camping season had ended. The GOOD: -The campground was super quiet, people wise anyway. For those city folk that want to get away, all you hear in the evenings and night is the wild. I loved it. My kids, they wondered about what was making the buzzing sounds,... More

We stay at this campground every Labor Day and always enjoy our stay. The owners are super friendly and do anything for you. The grounds are clean and well kept, the area has lots of trees and rolling hills, and you are a short drive from the Hocking Hills attractions. Great frisbie golf course onsite and lake for paddle boats/fishing.... More

We liked this place however it does have it's flaws. The owner and his family are super friendly and if you learn the campgrounds history, when he bought it, it was in severe disrepair and he has busted his hump to make it better. There are kids movies, small and not so nice pool, lake looks clean but my kids... More

Where to start..... If you are expecting a campground to be wooded and a long curvy road back away from the main road this campground is not for you. We stayed in the redbud cabin and let's just say they twisted the truth so much online, I almost sucked up the $150 I spent for two nights and went to... More

I love it when people don't bring anything to our attention, but go out to a review site and twist the truth! If you truly felt the cabin was dirty, it should have brought it to our attention immediately and it would have been addressed. We would never want someone to have to sweep & Clorox our cabins after we... More

Took us about 40 min to get there; website showed good pictures of various activities. The pool needs cleaning, however We felt adventurous to try it. Beautiful view of the lake. Would not come again though. Will try to find another pool in logan area. By the way, pool was very cold.

My 3-year-old had such a wonderful time, he didn't want to leave. Even after checking out today, he wanted to run back into the store to tell Mr. Carlson that he had fun at his campground! We arrived just after a storm to a brilliant rainbow literally leading us to Happy Hills. What an omen. As we brought our toddler... More
