I honestly don't know if that forest is any good for hiking or camping, we only go there as rally spectators, and all I can say is Zaleski State Forest has the best rally roads in Ohio!

We went backpacking at Zaleski based on some reviews we read. (unfortunately we only found the positive ones before we went there and then found the negative ones afterward.) We wondered why all of the YouTube videos didn't show much and they were either in the fall or winter. This place is a jungle in the summer. It's so dense, there is a canopy holding in all of the humidity. The trails were a mess. Down trees everywhere. I didn't know Ohio had swamps and this area is surrounded by them. The mosquitoes were insane. The only two positives were they did have awesome water available and the camping areas were very nice. Maybe this place is better in the fall.

We use Zalenski for hiking and you have a couple trails to choose from. The lake trail is about 3 miles each was (put and back) and offers nice views of the lake. There is also an 11 mile trail for those who have 4-5 hours to kill. These trails are easy exception for the distance which some may say is moderate.

Great area! I’ve been to Hocking Hills (cascade, ash, old mans, rock bridge etc) several times but new to Zalesaki. Checked out the Hope Lake campground and did a short day hike into site 1 on the backpack loop. Pretty easy trip in and back but not for the faint of heart. Right mixture of elevation changes and plateaus. Beautiful scenery and very peaceful!
