(4.7/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful cliffs, hikes, scenery, and caves. If you are considering it at all...just do it. If you're going to stay a night or two, getting a cabin with an included hot tub is a highly recommended part of the experience. If a cabin is found a half-hour away from the "Hills" that suits your's worth it. If you'd like, don't be afraid to bring kids, dogs, strollers, Aunt's, Uncle's, Grandparents. It's a good time for all! Don't forget to take many pics!
  • This place is one of peace for me. So much so that I'm moving there in a few short years. Astonishing landscape, especially when you learn that 500 million years ago it was covered in an ocean. No wonder it is near and dear, it was kept away and hidden while slowly being carved by a constant force in water. The striking outcrops explode from the landscape out of nowhere on the trails in throughout. The smoothness of the stone cliffs peppered in make it seem as though God carved them in one fine stroke of his chisel. Spiritual to say the least for myself and my family whom love nature.
  • This place is a real gem that stands out for this region of the country. The gorges offer a whole different world of vegetation, climate, and wildlife. It's amazingly beautiful. I liked it so much I've been back several times. The caves, the rock house, the land bridges, and the water features are among my favorites.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful area for hiking and sightseeing. The park has picnic areas as well as a pavilion but it's usually reserved for events. Right now the water level is extremely low due to the low rational this summer but typically there are waterfalls that you can walk through and take pictures of. It's pretty busy on weekends so is recommend visiting early or on weekdays.
