Urban dwellers are finding it more difficult to see the beautiful night sky as light pollution drowns out their view. Here in the Hocking Hills, we have a beautiful, wide-open view of the stars and encourage visitors to spend some time gazing heavenward to see those beautiful stars. The campsites and cabin spots of Hocking have a clearer view of the night sky than almost anywhere else in Ohio.
STARGAZING IN HOCKING HILLS
Bring your telescope and a guidebook or Stargazing App to identify stars, planets, constellations, and if your camera is really good you can get a photo of the Milky Way! If you want to see it from a unique spot, the new John Glenn Astronomy Center is an interesting place to visit.
