We are thinking about renting a cabin in the Hocking Hills area in the first week of June due to other vacation plans getting canceled, but I’m not familiar with the area. I realize that many trails are currently closed, but wondering if there are enough open trails to make the stay worthwhile? Also, are there lakes nearby for kids to swim in (not picky about the quality necessarily!) and are these open now? Any other ideas of available activities? We are not as fussy as we used to be about what is fun, and may just be happy to be away from home :).
Hi @emarie. There are many trails and activities open now. No word yet on when the mail trails will open, but you can find the remaining ones that are open here: List of trails that remain OPEN during COVID-19
Lake Logan would be a great spot for you and your family to swim. It’s conveniently located right off the highway and close to most activities. https://www.hockinghills.com/lake_logan.html
Other fun activities are canoeing, ziplining, putt putt which is 5 min drive from lake logan. (https://www.hockinghills.com/members/Adventure_Golf_at_Rempels_Grove.html)

Thank you so much for the quick response! Do you know if the swimming area at Lake Logan is open currently?
I believe it is. Lake Logan is actually a state park in and of itself which remains fully open. I forgot to mention this before, but it also has a beach which opens up to the swimming area. The last time I was there, there was a volleyball net too. Also, picnic areas and a 1 mile hiking trail (viewable at the lake logan link above). There’s also a marina where you can rent boats and paddle boats. They even a paddle boat in the shape of a duck, it’s pretty cute. I bet the kids would love it! https://lakeloganmarina.com/
Great, thanks. I decided to go ahead and book a cabin, so looking forward to checking it out and creating some new adventures!
Awesome, hope you have a great time!
