Reservations Camping Cabin River Go-Kart


Camping Reservations

Reservations require 100% prepayment. A two night minimum is required on holiday weekends. Although reservations make the check-in process easier for camping, walk-ins are still accepted if campsites are available. We understand that sometimes unexpected circumstances come up and cancellations become necessary. It is our policy to grant refunds if notified 7 days prior to arrival date minus a $10 processing fee. If cancelled within 7 days of arrival date you will be offered the opportunity to reschedule. The chance to reschedule expires after one year.

Campground sites are first come first served unless the feature "site guarantee" is selected on the online reservation. The site guarantee allows the guest to select a site and if available Hocking Hills Adventures will reserve the site. If a customers makes a reservation less than three days prior to their arrival date the site guarantee is not available and they will abide by the first come first served policy.

Mesh Litter Bags: Canoes and kayaks can tip causing trash from boat to spill into the river. A mesh litter bag is a good idea to keep contents secure in the canoe or kayak. Bags are sold for only $1 in the gift shop

Use a Koozie for Beverages: All beverage containers not securely contained in a sealed cooler or mesh litter bag must be held in a floating holder that is designed to prevent it from sinking beneath the surface of the water. Kozi’s are sold in our shop.

Coolers: The use of Styrofoam coolers is prohibited while floating the Hocking River. Styrofoam is easily susceptible to breaking in the event your canoe or kayak capsized. Much debris is caused by foam coolers inability to contain contents. Please plan accordingly and bring a hard or soft cooler in a canoe or kayak and soft coolers only in rafts.
