Press Staff Writer

        Imagine a weekend getaway in the Hocking Hills with some of Ohio’s most popular trails just a few feet away from your room.
        Reservations are now being accepted for lodge rooms at the new Hocking Hills State Park Lodge, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
        The new lodge, expected to open in early autumn, has 81 rooms available for reservations beginning Nov. 1. Hocking Hills State Park enthusiasts are encouraged to visit or call 1-800-AT-A-PARK (1-800-282-7275) as demand for overnight accommodations is expected to be high. Reservations may be made up to one year in advance. As the anticipated fall opening date nears, earlier reservation dates will become available.
        “With the opening of new lodge reservations, Hocking Hills State Park enthusiasts have an opportunity to be some of the first guests at the new Hocking Hills Lodge,” said ODNR Director Mary Mertz. “We are looking forward to providing Ohioans with another opportunity to spend time outside with family and friends, surrounded by the wonders of the Hocking Hills region.”
        Room designs include king, double queen, king bunk, and queen bunk rooms; many of the rooms have patios or balconies. Each room offers a full bath with a shower, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, high-definition TV, and other traditional hotel amenities.
        Additionally, four two-room suites will be available and offer a separate living area with a pull-out sofa and kitchenette. The lodge also offers several accessible king and double queen rooms.
        Lodge operations will be managed by U.S. Hotel and Resort Management, which will also manage the state park’s cabins beginning Aug. 1. Cabin guests will have access to all of the lodge’s amenities. They also operate Burr Oak, Deer Creek, Hueston Woods, Maumee Bay, Mohican, Punderson, Salt Fork, and Shawnee State Park lodges. The Lodge at Geneva is operated by Delaware North.
        Like other Ohio State Park lodges, the Hocking Hills Lodge will offer a large public lobby with oversized fireplaces, event space for over 200, a dining room and lounge, grab-and-go café, fitness center, gift shop, and indoor and outdoor pool complexes, both featuring all-season hot tubs.
        The lodge has been under construction since 2020. Nearly complete, the architecture incorporates the surrounding woods and natural landscape into its rustic design.
        Open every day and always free, Ohio’s state parks and waterways provide a refuge from the pace of modern life. To learn more about planning a vacation at Hocking Hills State Park, visit:
