Glamping at Crockett's Run

Rikki Teeters

Nestled in 55 acres of wooded terrain, Crockett’s Run enchants travelers with its secluded lodges and cabins, cozy canvas bell tents, and stunning wedding, business and event center. Its landscape features huge rock formations, two waterfalls, and a serene pond.

Tent-Hocking-Hills

Crockett’s Run is only minutes away from popular Hocking Hills attractions, such as canoeing, golfing, zip lines, horseback riding, craft and antique shopping, and popular state and metro parks. However, there are many on-site activities right outside your cabin's door. Enjoy hiking on Crockett's Run state-level hiking trail and observe a towering thirty-foot waterfall, views of their beautiful gorge, mossy logs and rocks, and lush native plants. Go on a picnic on one of their ten picnic tables each embracing a stunning view of the hills. Fish or go pedal boating on their stocked pond. Each cabin and lodge has its own outdoor fire pit and hot tub. If you have a large group, you can enjoy a bonfire by our 8-foot-wide fire pit in the gorge. If you have kids, they will enjoy playing on the adorable wooden playground. It includes a swing, teeter totter, slide, treehouse, rings, and a bench swing. Finally, if your friends and family have the competitive spirit, play a round of volleyball on our volleyball court in the gorge.

Take the hassle out of camping, and experience “glamping”— or as they like to call it, “boutique camping”— in Crockett Run's brand-new canvas bell tents. Each tent sits on our shared campground beneath towering trees and is bordered by a spectacular rock face. Walk along the crystal clear winding stream, take a swim in the small swimming hole, or listen to the water babbling right from your bed. Mingle with friends around the bonfire in our 9-foot-wide fire pit under a canopy of 60-foot-tall evergreens and the warm glow of string lights. Each tent features a queen size bed with luxurious bedding, vintage rugs, and handpicked furniture.

Crockett's Run

Whether you are seeking a venue for a wedding, corporate event, family reunion, yoga or church retreat, Crockett’s Run will make your vision come true. The spectacular natural surroundings create the ideal backdrop for a wedding ceremony or engagement photos. Their state of the art event center is walking distance from all of the cabins, and offers many amenities for your guests. The event space can accommodate up to 150 people and has bathrooms, a kitchen space, charcoal grills, a deep freezer, AC/Heating and a backup generator. Two indoor fireplaces and an outdoor fireplace on the private patio create an inviting and warm ambiance. Go for a morning nature walk on our private hiking trail, enjoy lunch on our outdoor deck overlooking the rolling hills, or savor the views with a private bonfire in the gorge in the evening. Keep checking their social media because starting in 2019, Crockett’s Run is offering biannual yoga retreats on their beautiful property!
