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.

Incredible place to visit in Ohio. If you can plan it at all, go during the week, and the earlier the better! Weekends are insane and can completely ruin the experience. We have a family of four (all.... more

Beautiful park! It’s a scenic drive to get back to some of the main trails/parking and you may or may not have signal throughout the drive so keep that in mind. I found it best to go early to avoid...

This is an amazing place to visit if you get the chance! We stayed for 3 days but would have loved more time to explore. Bring your serious walking shoes and be ready to walk and climb. We took our two children, ages 9 1/2 and 7, and they were able to fully participate and enjoy! The beauty is incredible. Don't forget the camera!!
Absolutely beautiful! We stayed in the getaway cabins. Paws #43 and has a great stay for my birthday. The property managers had a special note and bottle of wine for us to celebrate! All their main attractions are beautiful to explore but there are so many other areas off of the beaten path as well. Recommend exploring the nature preserve. You can explore inside the gorge which is so pretty it doesn't even seem real and then it is a must to conquer the enormous amount of stairs and hike the top of the gorge!
