Owner’s Favorites

Owners Favorites: Below is a list of our personal favorite list of places to eat and things to do in Hocking Hills. We are NOT affiliated with any of these companies, but would like to share what we and our guests have enjoyed.


🌲 🚤😋Lake Hope Lodge

Located at the Lake Hope State Park
Address: 27331 OH-278, McArthur, OH 45651
Phone: (740) 596-0601


Our Notes: Great food, awesome view! May want to call ahead to make sure they are open, hours might change seasonally. You can easily make a day out of a trip to Lake Hope! Beautiful scenery, boat rentals, and secluded hiking trails!!!

Please see Places to Eat for more info on this location and other restaurant options.

🍕Pizza Crossing

Address: 58 N Mulberry St, Logan, OH 43138
(740) 385-8558

Our Notes: Pizza Crossing is only a minute out of the way, when taking exit 93 off of 33 (just turn north towards Logan instead of south towards the cabins). We normally order ahead and get it to go. While everything at Pizza Crossing is awesome, we recommend the BBQ chicken pizza and the chef’s salad.

🍖Millstone BBQ

Address: 12790 Grey St, Logan, OH 43138
(740) 385-5341

Our Notes: Not far out of the way from many area attractions and close to Walmart. Great place to dine in and also offer order ahead take-out. The meals come with cornbread that is SO GOOD!

🏌️🍽️🍷 The Urban Grille – Public Clubhouse At The Hocking Hills Golf Club


Our Notes: Good food, and closest restaurant / bar to Aspen Ridge.

Things to Do:

Besides the popular state park hiking trails, please see below for our favorite activities.

🐎Horseback Riding at Equestrian Ridge Farm

Address: 26711 Pumpkin Ridge Rd, New Plymouth, OH 45654

Our notes: Fun for all ages and ANY riding level from 1st time horseback riding to expert. They are located about 15 mins south of the cabins on a beautiful property. Owners are super nice, very accommodating, and obviously passionate about caring for their horses. P.S. bring apples and / or carrots to feed the horses!
