Eureka! The Perfect Family Reunion Place!

Ash Cave Complex
A little blogging break. Washington County, Ohio is on my mind but it’s not ready yet. While looking into Washington County I stumbled upon what might seriously be the best areas ever for a family reunion. It is a complex of parks – some sites say nine, I saw a list of 12 – with every outdoor activity you can imagine.  Plus it is incredibly beautiful. Plus there are great little villages with bed and breakfast inns and other great places to stay, and restaurants with great food.

Honestly it doesn’t really matter that none of us live in Ohio – we can go there as a family to commune with nature and each other.  The area is called Hocking Hills and is mostly located in Hocking County – which way back was probably part of Washington County. So kids and grandkids and great grandkids – please follow the links and let me know what you think.  I think you’re gonna love it!

“Hocking Hills provides a variety of recreational opportunities in a splendid natural setting. The 2,356-acre park has towering cliffs, waterfalls and deep hemlock-shaded gorges to lure the hiker and naturalist and serve as a backdrop to popular facilities and accommodations.”  ODNR Division of Ohio State Parks
The above is an understatement.  I was impressed with the ziplines in other counties -- this one has 50 miles of zips.  Whoa!   And, they not only have horse trails they have stables that provide horses.
Seriously, let me know what you think.  This might be the place in 2014!

  1. That is a beautiful place!

  2. I will take an afternoon at the spa, the morning on horseback and the next day canoeing. Thanks!

  3. . . . and [ I ] agree that Hocking Hills as well as many other areas of Ohio are beautiful. No wonder the Indians lived and traveled the Ohio area in their time as well as the pilgrims settling here in the Midwest. What beauty and adventures they had! And we are trying to save some for the future generations to see/know. Thank you for your interest in Ohio State Parks! JaneJ
