New Hocking Hills State Park Lodge to Include Overnight Guestrooms

This is a new offering that allows for guests to stay longer in the park

Nearly two years after a fire destroyed the dining lodge at Hocking Hills State Park, plans are finally in the works to replace it – this time, with rooms for overnight guests.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) on Wednesday announced plans to rebuild the lodge at the state’s flagship park in Southeast Ohio. In addition to a restaurant and day-use facilities, the new lodge will include a conference center and a yet-to-be-determined number of overnight guest rooms. The previous lodge, which caught fire while its roof was being repaired in December 2016, was for day-use only.

“This is a new opportunity for more visitors to have the option to stay overnight at Hocking Hills State Park, and we are excited to help create a place that will provide more joy and relaxation to millions of visitors in the future,” said ODNR Director Jim Zehringer.
