You'll be staying on a small organic fruit, vegetable and flower farm. Depending on the season, you can purchase any of these. Additionally, we produce wood products included turned bowls and fine furniture made from wood harvested on the farm and in the area. If time allows, farm tours can be arranged. There is also a one mile loop trail for hiking. You are near the college town of Athens with all the amenities it offers. We do require that all guests be fully vaccinated for Covid-19. Pets are welcome and can be let off leash, but they need to stay near your site as there is a road nearby and farm pets as well. We want to stress this is really boondocking--no water, electric or sewer hookup and in our beautiful location we are undisturbed by cell phones or wifi. We do offer firewood for sale and will provide a fire pit. Suggested Local Attractions:For mountain bikers there is the Bailey's bicycle trail in the Wayne National Forest just 15 miles away. Also, Athens has a great bike trial that goes by three local breweries.

A trout bum with a Scamp Details: Married with two great sons, one who farms near to us. I like to take off in my Scamp and find places to chase trout with my fly rod. I was in public education for nearly 40 years, and loved all of it! Retired I am a writer, farmer's helper (for my son), and hunt and fish. Home Town: Amesville, Ohio Skills or Expertise to Share: I can tie you some of my favorite trout flies, read you a funny story, or opine on the state of public education.

Although we did not meet with our hosts personally we were given excellent directions and enjoyed a quiet nights rest in a pleasant little meadow. Thank you so much!

Kindness. Beauty. Comfort. Generosity. Our stay with @docgwood was magical. We arrived late and were gamely met in Amesville at 9pm and escorted to the camp site. Because of bad weather we were unable to go food shopping beforehand and DocGWood generously provided us with some provisions for us and our two children for the morning. We woke up to a beautiful day in a quiet, flat patch of cleared brush. We were given a farm tour complete with fresh fruit and vegetables we picked ourselves. We didn’t want to leave but we left anyway for our next adventure, hoping to return soon.

Property is stunning and hosts were extremely responsive and accommodating. Wish we were able to stay for more than one night. I'd love to experience more of the farm and the tasty fruits and vegetables. The asparagus was delicious! If you are visiting on the weekend, don't miss the farmers market!

DocGWood is a congenial host who shared his land, time, and knowledge on a variety of subjects. The site is on a working farm that has a surprising diversity of fruits, vegetables, flowers and trees. During our tour of the farm we met working people who took time away from their tasks to talk with us. Very interesting indeed. Initially I was a little worried about being able to get go up a small hill and into the spot we parked in. Our host showed us where we could back into a field to turn around. Plenty of space to do so. We would love to stay there again. PS: You can even buy maple syrup made from the trees on their property!

We stayed two nights while visiting state parks and Wayne National Forest in the surrounding area. DocGWood helped us with directions and made us feel very welcome. He answered all our questions and gave us useful tips about the area
