My husband and I have 5 kids! We all LOVE Happy Hills!

The owners are wonderful people and went out of their way to help us and others. A couple that camped near us this weekend was having trouble with their camper lights and their A/C unit. The husband (owner) did everything he could to help fix the problem they were having and called a repair company for them, which came to the campground to service the camper! (The camper didn't belong to the campground owners, but they tried their best to help at no charge)

There was a Karaoke contest on Saturday night! The winner got a t-shirt from the Karaoke host(s). They were very pleasant and friendly people as well.

They also have a crafts hour for the kids and a hayride!

The owners are putting a swimming area in their lake and it looks like that will be a great area for my kids to have fun. They have a pool too!

We will CERTAINLY be going back!

We've been there a few times over the last 2 years and every time we're there we don't want to leave. We wish we had a camper, cause we'd get a seasonal site.

They're rules aren't hard to follow and they're ALWAYS willing to go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable.

They have a nice pool, a great fishing pond that you can ACTUALLY catch fish at and they always have entertainment on the weekends. (Karaoke, Pinewood Derby, Ice Cream Socials, etc.)

October is A LOT of fun, cause they have Halloween activities EVERY weekend and allow you to set up decorations.

They ALWAYS have an ample amount of ice, soda, firewood, etc. at reasonable prices.

We will definitely go back.

Not close to Hocking Hills attractions, Pool closed by Health Dept. Pool not close to campground, (500 yards) had it's own parking area!! Camp sights very unlevel, (bring lots of blocking!) and close together. Restrooms very poor conditions, Store closed more than open. Only 30 amp sites no extra recepticles , very poor wiring in boxes, not safe for kids. Worst campground we have stayed at for the price.The week we were there 7 other camping units were unhappy also, said web site very deceiving!!! Won't go there again!!

happycampesr2011, Owner at Happy Hills Campground and Cabins, responded to this review, 17 April 2013
Our website accurately reflects our campground. Our pool was closed for the first and last time since we have owned the campground (8 years). We provided all campers with passes to a water park located in Nelsonville, free of charge.

We are also known for having the most level sites in the Hocking Hills, however, our name and our location clearly indicates "hills". During the summer months our camp store is open every day at 9:00 - 6pm Mon - Wed, and 9:00 - 9:00 Thurs, Fri, & Sat. Sunday we close at 2, but we have our phone number posted and we live on the property.

Since this review was written (2011), We have a new shelter house, new camp store, new game room, a beach at our lake and are in the process of upgrading some of our sites to 50AMP this year.

we loved there! great activities, magician show and karaoke were great . rules are strictly enforced ( quiet time and firering rule). great for families. small pool ,bathrooms are normal for a campground. alittle faraway from hocking hills caves (maybe 15 miles) they will deliver fire wood to your site!

For starters the house they rented us was infested with mice. There was mouse poop in all the drawers and cabinets, closets and bathrooms, even on the window sills in the bedrooms. When we brought this to there attention they were very rude, did nothing about the problem and then told us it was part of nature. There was also a 5-6 foot snake in our bathroom...probably looking to dine on the mice. This too we were assured was just part of nature. They were shocked that we complained, even acted like they were offended. I would never ever stay any where on thier property again. Not only was it a filthy environment but the owners were not even willing to admit there was a problem or even try to fix it. They just kept insisting that this was "PART OF NATURE". We would have been better off sleeping in the woods.
