Cleveland Magazine recommended The EcoCamp experience. As tent campers, we were looking for something fun and adventurous close to home. Staying in a Yurt was something we've wanted to try out. Due to the Coronavirus, each of the 4 Yurt sites was transformed into an independent, self-contained campsite. Even so, Alex did a wonderful job of serving each site with ice, breakfast treats, filtered water, and many other camping necessities. We learned a lot about solar energy and how far the supplied Power Stations would go to charge phones, tablets, and in our case, even the CPAP machine. We were SO grateful to Alex for working with us to accommodate the CPAP. He is open to suggestions in order to create the most viable, eco-friendly campsite. We HIGHLY recommend The EcoCamp for a family-friendly adventure that is a step up from tent camping.

Hubby and I were going stir crazy at home. I was looking for a "glamping" spot in Ohio and found Eco Camp! The booking process was easy and Alex was great at communication. We checked in for 2 days and found out we would have the whole place to ourselves on the second day! Our tent was spacious and the bed was super comfortable. It did not feel like a queen, it felt tons bigger (we are both tall folks!) The wood burning grill and charcoal barbecue each site had worked well, with firewood, firestarters and charcoal provided by EcoCamp. Alex offers top notch customer service and awesome amenities. We had a great time on our quick getaway!

My pup and I recently stayed at The Eco Camp for 2 nights and had the most relaxing experience. We had the range of weather from mild to rain to snow and stayed cozy and comfortable the entire trip. The camp has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay and has quick access to hiking trails and activities. Grand Rapids is a quick drive away and has very cute antique shopping and a lovely local brewery if that's your thing. Alex is a pleasure to get to know and he's available if you need anything during your stay. I'll absolutely be back!

Hands down one of the best and most unique getaway experiences I've had. This is the best way to go camping but still having a sort of luxury experience. The tents were so cute with how they were decorated and the bed was very comfortable. For a one man operation, The Eco Camp is very cleverly crafted and it seems like everything was thought of. This getaway was a surprise to me from my boyfriend, and I had some initial concerns about staying here - especially considering it was going to be about 20° overnight. However, Alex (the owner) quickly dispelled all of my concerns by showing us how to use the heating stove that is in every tent and explaining to us everything we needed to know so we would have a good experience. He was also very good about giving us space while also being available any time we needed him with a quick text. And if you want, he'll even bring you waffles, coffee, and tea in the morning. The waffles are phenomenal. An absolute bargain at its price considering what a unique destination it is, how close to oak openings we were, and how wonderful the host is. We will 100% be back and will recommend this to anyone that is looking to get away from life for a little bit.
