From gorges to waterfalls, and rock shelters to cliffs, natural beauty abounds in Hocking Hills State Park. The massive park is split into five sections, named for their top features: Old Man’s Cave, Cedar Falls, Ash Cave, Cantwell Cliffs, and Rock House. The most popular, Old Man’s Cave, is a deep gorge named for one of its early inhabitants, recluse Richard Rowe who made the cave his home in the late 1700s. Many companies offer organized activities such as canoeing, horseback riding, and ziplining. You can also choose to make use of the many hiking trails, fishing spots, or fully equipped campgrounds.

  • A very well known destination for central Ohio residents. About an hour to the SE of the city. The park was wonderful trails to hike for all skill levels. Unfortunately during my last visit the trails...  read more »
  • We took our 8 year old granddaughter here for a hike. Beautiful scenery. It was very crowded today on Saturday October 15. Almost too many people to enjoy ourselves. Also the water falls were very low...  read more »
  • We visited the park a couple of times during our weekend stay in the area. The park itself is beautiful to walk & drive threw. We were able to actually see trees as they are changing colors. Something...  read more »
  • Amazing place! We had to drive pretty far but it was definitely worth the trip. The park is beautiful with cool caves and waterfalls. A great place to take the family or your friends... or just to get cool pictures! The great landscape in the woods with the sunlight streaming through the tops of the trees can make some pretty awesome pictures.
  • The park was awesome. The campsites were good and the bathroom facilities were some of the best I've seen at a camp. The trails were well maintained with easy access. No cell service once you get off the highway, so plan accordingly. It's nice to get off the grid sometimes, though.
  • Old Man's Cave was the best part of the park on our visit, and it was nice. But the park looks like it needs some love. Lots of bare roots in the paths, which is dangerous to visitors and will kill the tree. Water was low, so not many water falls. Very crowded. Maps were confusing. After hiking beautiful West Virginia, I was a little disappointed, especially after waiting about 15 years to see it.
  • We were here is week this park I had just started hearing about what a wonderful place. Signs help you find the spots you want to get to. The camp ground is very clean and well taken care of we had a great 4 nights hiked all of the spots even in the rain. What a wonderful surprise this beautiful park really is.
  • This is a wonderful place to visit in Ohio. Used to come out here nearly every summer week in my late teens when I lived in Columbus and hadn't been back for some years. Did a Father's day weekend campout with my daughter's family at the nearby KOA and had a wonderful time. Hiked the trails a couple of days. Trails were much busier than I remember in my youth but everyone was nice and it was great to see the caves, falls, and formations. The nearby General Store serves 30-some flavors of soft serve too, so you can cool off after your hike!
