Camp Oty’Okwa is located at 24799 Purcell Road off St. Rt. 374 just north of St. Rt. 664. It is approximately 2 miles north of South Bloomingville, 2 miles west of Old Man’s Cave and south of Conkle’s Hollow. We strongly urge you not to follow the directions given on internet map systems such as “Map Quest”.

From the South and Southeast:

South: Take St. Rt. 23 north to St. Rt. 180 east. At Laurelville, turn right onto St. Rt. 56 and go to S. Bloomingville. At the three way intersection, go straight ahead which becomes St. Rt. 664. Continue on to the top of the hill where you will turn left onto St. Rt. 374. Turn left again onto Purcell Rd. (100 yards).

Southeast: Take St. Rt. 33 north from Athens through Nelsonville to the Logan area. Exit at St. Rt. 664 (Old Man’s Cave and Hocking Hills State Park) and turn left. Take St. Rt. 664 past Old Man’s Cave and Grandma Faye’s (approximately 12 miles). Turn right (north) onto St. Rt. 374 and then left onto Purcell Rd. (100 yards).

Purcell Rd. and the entrance to Camp Oty’Okwa are only 100 yards to the left once you have turned onto St. Rt. 374. If you proceed down the hill, you have gone too far and missed the entrance.

Stay on Purcell Rd. for about ¼ mile to the camp. Once you have reached the camp…

  • Coultrap Lodge is the second drive on the left.
  • Cardinal Lodge is the first building on the right.
  • The Main Campus area is the third drive on the left between the pool and the Activity Center (the large barn with green roof).
  • The Visitor Center is the second building on the right.
  • Venard Cabin is the first drive on the right past the Visitor Center.
