Hipcamp at Bending Oak

Come ‘Hipcamp’ With Us!

Voted #3 best Hipcamp in Ohio 2018

What is Hipcamp? Some describe Hipcamp as the Airbnb for campers.

For those who just want to get away and camp for an overnight, a weekend, or more (but are not thrilled about staying in a state park campground or other commercial operation) …
…Hipcamp connects you with people who own their own property and are happy to have folks come and camp on their land.

Hipcamp at Bending Oak – and yes, you can bring your puppy.

Now that our permaculture site, Bending Oak, is in its 4th year of development we are ready to share our progress. One way we’ve chosen to do this is by joining the Hipcamp family.

Consider booking a stay with us and come see/learn more about what we are up to… or… just come and chill.

Book on Hipcamp
Jim Penrod is our site project manager and will be there to welcome campers. He is a graduate of our trainings and has already worked with us for over two years so he’s wonderfully qualified to show campers around and talk permaculture if you’re interested. He can also just leave you alone.

A few of the features you will find at Bending Oak:

The half-acre pond we designed and the barn we constructed from used shipping containers.

Several tent platforms to choose from or just set your tent up on the ground.

Three separate camping areas waiting for you to choose from.

An outdoor shower stall…

…with hot water provided from a wood-fired rocket-mass heater.

Composting Toilets Tucked into the Woods

Hand and Dish Washing Stand in the Common Area

This is the common area next to the barn for gathering with other campers if desired.

The barn has a 1.6KW solar electric system and rainwater harvesting cisterns for clean-filtered water and all of the electricity one needs to keep their computer, batteries and phone charged.

A young fruit orchard with vegetables growing within a diverse cover crop.
