Family Bonding at Its Best in the Hocking Hills – Unplugged!

Whether you’re in the mood to play hooky or have earned some time away, the Hocking Hills has just what you need – the best UNPLUGGED activities around where you can connect with your loved ones without technological distractions. Though we boast year-round activities for the whole family (plugged and unplugged), this time of year lends itself to some good, old-fashioned family fun. And with this week’s expected weather forecast, there is no time like the present to get outside and enjoy some abundant sunshine.

Did you know spending quality time with your family, such as playing board games, increases bonding, motor skills, and problem-solving skills. Plus, 96% of families who game together say they feel closer, according to Check out Family Game night in Hocking Hills! Game with other families or on your own by BYOG for your own family fun or simply borrow one during your stay from our Guest Services building. We’ve recently added Giant Jenga to our selection and include some classics like puzzles, Monopoly, and Risk. Games, books, movies, amenities, and more are available to you 24/7 when you stay with us.

Stargazing is another great way for your family to engage in a fun, educational activity. Check out the Total Lunar Eclipse we’re expecting Sunday, May 15th overnight into Monday. Watch from your cabin or travel just a ½ mile to the John Glenn Astronomy Park to mingle with other space fans. Check out their weekly programming to keep up with all celestial happenings visible from Hocking Hills. Did you know stargazing has health benefits, too?!

Geocaching is super fun for the family, together determined to find the hidden ‘treasure.’ There are hundreds of caches in Hocking County. You can download any popular app to guide your exploration. Or you can also sign up on for a free account and search the area via their map view to begin planning this epic adventure.

Whatever your family’s favorite warm-weather activities may be, let Cedar Grove welcome you home away from home and make the best of your time together!
