Hidden Hollow 2012
Q: What about the cabins? What are they like?
As you can see, the free cabins we offer with your registration are primative. They aren't heated, but they are very picturesque and can hold as many as 6-8 visitors in the smaller ones, while the larger dorm style cabins can hold around 50. They aren't fancy, but they are clean and they are sheltered.
Q: What should I bring if I plan on staying inside a cabin?
All bunks are provided with a clean mattress for you to sleep on, but we do not provide bedding or towels. Because they are unheated, you may wish to plan on bringing seasonal clothing and bedding. There is electric light on the inside and some do have outlets.
Q:What are the bunkhouses?
Our bunkhouses are just what the name implies - a large area filled with clean beds with flushing restrooms and hot showers in the basement area. For single guests, this is a preferred area since cabins suit large groups or families. There are two bunkhouses, each capable of holding 50 or more individuals. The bunkhouses to the west and nearest the drive are traditionally male, while the bunkhouses to the east and in the woods are reserved for females.
Q: What about camping?
As you can see, there are plenty of areas to set up a camper or a tent. You are also welcome to sleep in your van or car if you like. Please keep in mind that Hidden Hollow is not a true campground and there are no electric, water or sewer hook-ups. For heavier vehicles, there is plenty of level solid ground and self contained units are always welcome.
Q: What is Sky View Lodge?
Sky View Lodge is a beautiful facility overlooking the mountain tops. It is equipped with restrooms and heat. This is the area in which are vendors set up, offering inside facilities for comfort and safety. Sky View Lodge is also the scene of our Workshops and some of our Contests. The area is very large and pleasant. If you take the stairway down you'll find where our speakers will make their presentations and we show videos during the evening should the weather not cooperate.
Q: What about hot showers and restrooms?
Not to worry! Both large bunkhouses are home to huge, clean, hot shower facilities and modern restrooms. Shower curtains are provided, but remember - this is summer camp-style. You will find modern restroom located all over the grounds, including at the Dome and in both lodges. You are welcome to use all the facilities regardless of whether you choose to stay in a cabin or to choose to camp.
Q: Can I bring my pet?
Even if I don't have time to change what's on our registration, you are welcome to bring your pets - but remember - YOU are responsible for cleaning up after them and their safety. This is a wooded area and home to Ohio wildlife, including skunks and coyotes. No one wants to step in poo in the dark... and we don't want you to lose a beloved friend in the woods, either!
Q: What about personal beverages and smoking?
Hidden Hollow is private property and what you do as a person is your own business as long as it doesn't interfere with the health and safety of others. If you are a smoker, ask others around you before lighting up and be responsible for your butts. If you enjoy your own personal beverages, be responsible for your containers and do not be offensive to others. It's all about respect.
Q: What about food?
Each year we're happy to welcome North Star Concessions and their wonderful food service! As long as there is customers, these great folks stay open round the clock to provide us with hot sandwiches, soup, donuts, coffee, soda and all kinds of goodies. Of course, you are more than welcome to bring your own eats and grilling and camp stoves are permitted. If you choose, there is also a wonderful selection of restaurants about 6-8 miles away when you exit 71.
Q: What if I only want to attend on one day?
We realize there may be circumstances when you aren't able to attend the full weekend, and in these economic times it only makes sense to ask for a discounted rate. If you are only able to attend for one day - then you will only be charged for one day. But, please be honest. Our Star Party makes very little (if any) profit and we want to be able to at least cover our expenses of opening the camp for you for the weekend. Please contact me directly via the email link on the left for single day options.
More details will be coming soon....
