Author's note: I was happy to share this information because Hocking Hills, Ohio was one of our very favorite camping trips. We went there in 2007 (the above video is ours), and we have recommended Hocking Hills to all of our RVing friends.
One of the premier websites for camping and hiking, Tripleblaze.com, has just released its list of Best Campgrounds in America, and Hocking Hills State Park is now ranked No. 1!
Located in the heart of Ohio’s stunning Hocking Hills region, the campground beat out hundreds of camping sites across America, including the famed Yosemite National Park, which came in second, and Mt. Rainier National Park, which is ranked #14. Tripleblaze.com uses a specially designed algorithm to rank campsites and determine the popularity of each one. The system accounts for the average ratings, number of reviews and the number of people who have camped or wish they could stay at the campground.
Along with being home to the best campground in the U.S., Hocking Hills is also considered the “canopy tour capital of the Midwest.” Throughout the lush forests of Hocking Hills exists miles of ziplines, giving campers and other visitors a chance to view the area from above. However, Ziplines are just one of the many attractions to the Hocking Hills area. Campers can hike among rugged cliffs, soaring rock faces and roaring waterfalls of Old Man's Cave, Ash Cave or Cedar Falls. Travelers seeking a break from hiking they can go horseback riding, kayaking or rent ATVs to ride through the immense forests. Visitors can also tour the last washboard factory in America, or even learn how to blow glass jewelry from a local artist. No matter what visitors come to do, they will not be disappointed by the thousands of acres of natural scenic beauty of Ohio’s Hocking Hills.
Tripleblaze.com is the foremost destination for people to learn about U.S. campgrounds, hiking trails and outdoor recreation gear. The site posts reviews of campgrounds around the country and gives members the ability to post their own reviews of campgrounds they have visited. The top feature of the site is the camp ground and hiking trial ranking system, implemented to give users insight into the parks in the country. It also ranks outdoor gear and hiking trails.
