It’s not just a song title from the beloved musical “Camelot”. The lusty month of May is a great description of how we feel about spring. It’s a little easier to find yourself lost in a daydream while the first hummingbird of the season hovers out your window. Mother Nature’s pallet contains endless varieties of green. Wildflowers carpet the forest floor. Dogwood, redbud and flowering crabapple trees burst with colorful blooms. The air is sweet and the evening’s song is provided by a chorus of peepers.
Waterfalls erupt in thunderous motion as spring rains feed their fury. Clifftops offer up miles and miles of the season’s awakening. Inviting warm days make it impossible to resist going outside to play. What better place to succumb to the lusty month of May than the Hocking Hills, Ohio’s natural crown jewels.
This May give in to those urges. You know the ones, taking a road trip, taking a mental health day or two, playing outside like you did when you were a kid. The Hocking Hills has a plethora of playgrounds. From hiking among wildflowers and waterfalls to playing in an adult sandbox with really big toys it’s all here in the Hills.
Get a bird’s eye view of spring’s splendor on a zipline canopy tour. With more than sixty ziplines the Hocking Hills is the Canopy Tour Capital of the Midwest. The Hocking River is moving, making canoe and kayak tours effortless. See a side of spring which can only be seen by horseback. Drop a line and catch dinner. There’s nothing like a fresh fish dinner cooked over an open fire on a cool spring evening.
Don’t miss the Hills’ newest attraction; Hocking Hills Sandbox. This adult sandbox features real earth moving equipment. Play with a bulldozer, track loader, excavator and high lift. All the construction equipment you craved as a kid is waiting for you in a grown-up sandbox.
After a day of being a kid, kick back on the deck of your private cabin in the woods. Gaze at the star filled night sky while you toast the marshmallows soon to be melting over chocolate and graham crackers for the ultimate ooey gooey sweet dream inducing treat. Your every sense will be satisfied when you spend a little bit of “The Lusty Month of May” in Mother Nature’s Camelot.
