The Differences between the State Parks and Nature Preserves

The difference is mostly up to the state government’s goal for that area. In general, State Nature Preserves focus more on the preservation of the area, and thus have more restrictions and less human development, while state parks typically have more amenities such as bathrooms with plumbing, and camp pavilions, developed campgrounds and cabins, and may have a lodge.

Pet-Friendly Options 

We love your pets here at the Hocking Hills! The state parks are pet-friendly trails while the nature preserves are not. Some pet-friendly dining and brewery/winery options include: 

  • Maya Burrito Patio
  • Hungry Buffalo Patio
  • Millstone Patio
  • Coffee Emporium Patio
  • Hocking Hills Winery Patio
  • Brewery 33 Outdoor space
