Blue Rock Boondock lies just across the Muskingum River from Ohio state route 60. The spot is adjacent to our pole barn lean to which is situated on a dead end lane less than 100 yards from the river. Enjoy a fire in the designated area and use the lean to for shelter and relaxing. Electrical power is available at the site but outdoor lighting is controlled from inside the barn which likely will not be open. We are in a rural area shared by both full and part time residents and have neighbors who, like us, appreciate the quiet setting.
No smoking on property.
Pets on leash is recommended due to close proximity to the lane and other neighborhood pets.
As you head down the gravel lane, find our pole barn on the right and take the second gravel turn in allowing you to swing around and back into the boondock spot adjacent to the barn lean to. Turning into the first one would be very tight and is guarded by a utility pole.
Should you pass by Blue Rock Boondock heading down the lane there are a few driveways that could be used as a turnaround before the lane ends at the woods along the river.
Blue Rock Boondock is situated about half way down a dead end gravel lane. Our road surface is dusty gravel and shared by other full and part time residents so please keep speed to under 15 MPH.
There is ample space to park in front of the pole barn lean to or in the gravel turn around area. Please try not to block the overhead doors.
We do a fair amount of travelling but feel free to reach out and see if we can accommodate you.
We are located along the historical Muskingum River Parkway featuring manually operated locks up and down the river. The Muskingum River Parkway and its 160-year-old navigation system were designated a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers in July 2001. The Muskingum River's 10 hand-operated locks are now recognized as one of America's great engineering accomplishments.
Blue Rock State Park and Forest is just a few miles up the river. The state park encompasses 322 acres that are surrounded by the 4,573 acres of Blue Rock State Forest.
