    About this property

    Camping in the Hocking Hills at Altenbrauch Farm

    Located only 8 miles from Hocking Hills State Park, Altenbrauch Farm's 62-acre property features a mix of open fields, small streams, wooded hills and a lonely country road. Aside from our house, there are no neighbors in sight. Easily pitch your tent in an open field or trek through the hills and hollows to find the perfect primitive campsite. Campers and RVs are also welcome, although no utility hookups are available at this time. As part of Ohio's famous Hocking Hills Region, Vinton County is home to the second largest state forest, in addition to multiple state parks and wildlife areas. You’ll encounter abandoned historical sites and relics dating back to the early 1800s, hidden away among the wooded hills of Ohio’s least populated county. If you're a lover of outdoor recreation, this is the place to be. Within about a half-hour drive, there are many opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking, hunting and fishing, and birding. Nearby parks and forests include Hocking Hills State Park, Hocking Hills State Forest, Lake Hope State Park, Zaleski State Forest, the Moonville Rail Trail, Lake Alma State Park, Tar Hollow State Forest, and more!

      Minimalist heaven!

      Perfect place for our group of guys looking to stay under the stars for a night. Caleb greeted us right away. He provided great details of the property and even helped us out with a can opener because we forgot ours! Beautiful open fields. Plenty of open space. Stone fire rings. And, my personal fav, the COMPOST TOILET! Love this place. Our group of four had a bit trouble finding it due to all of our cell providers having no signal there. But once we found it we were grateful to be ‘off grid’. Thank you Caleb!!

        Would recommend!

        This was a VERY nice place to stay, very secluded, very little traffic, and no other campers around our site which was perfect for us. The owner was super friendly and extremely easy going. It was a beautiful stay with a short drive to do anything. We plan to definitely stay again.

          Very remote and very private.
