How to book your favorite site online today!

With us entering our off-season and having shortened hours of availability to make reservations over the phone, I wanted to refresh our guests on how to book online. Our #1 question or concern from guests about online booking is whether you have the ability to pick your favorite site online and the great answer is that YOU DO! I’ve taken a screen shot of the booking process to help guests out. 

The first step is to put in your important reservation information such as your date of arrival, number of nights staying, unit type, and length (if applicable). Select “Rental Unit” if looking for a cabin booking. Once you click “Show Availability,” our campground map will gray out sites that do not match your unit type or are already booked. 

To book a specific site, use the map feature at the top of the page. You can zoom in and out and move the site map around to view different areas. You’ll see that I clicked on site 213. On the right hand side, an information box popped up giving a description of this site. If I want to reserve site 213 specifically, I would click on the blue “Reserve” button that is attached to that site’s details. 

If you do not care where you are placed in the park, you can book via one of the general site types listed below the map such as RV Pull-Thru or Primitive Tent Site. If you book via one of the general categories, you will be randomly plugged into an open site that fits that category. 

I hope this answers some of our guests questions about online booking and how to choose their favorite site. We look forward to seeing you in the park soon!

Fair Detour

October 5th, 2016 | The Mohican Adventures Team

Our hometown fair is taking place this week! Traffic from the south (coming in on State Route 3 North or from 97 East) will NOT be affected. Below are details around the fair if you’re coming from another direction. *Don’t worry! The fair isn’t large and the detour is short and easy!* 

Coming from the North on State Route 60 or State Route 3: When you reach the Main Street intersection, you will no longer be able to turn right onto Main Street (you’ll see the big fair tent set up right there!). Instead, you’ll head straight through the Main Street stoplight and go past the Lutheran church. This road will dead end with our elementary school directly in front of you on the next block. At this stop sign, turn right. You’ll go through another intersection (with the stop sign covered) and then reach a stop sign at the next intersection. This is the State Route 3 intersection and you’ll make a left here. You’re back on track to us – we’re a mile and a half south on the right hand side! 

Coming from the East via State Route 60 or State Route 39: You will run straight into the fair on Main Street and be forced to turn left or right. Turn left and you’ll pass the Lutheran church on your right. This road will dead end with our elementary school directly in front of you on the next block. At this stop sign, turn right. You’ll go through another intersection (with the stop sign covered) and then reach a stop sign at the next intersection. This is the State Route 3 intersection and you’ll make a left here. You’re back on track to us – we’re a mile and a half south on the right hand side! 

Coming from the West on State Route 39: You will come into town and be stopped at a blinking light. Turning left will take you on Main Street and you’ll hit the fair detour. Instead, go straight through the blinking light and up S. Mount Vernon Avenue. This road is about a mile long and dead ends onto State Route 3. Turn right at the stop sign on Route 3 and we will be shortly ahead on your right hand side. 

If you’d like to check out the fair happenings, you can view their Facebook page at Loudonville Free Street Fair or their website at http://loudonvillefair.com.

Labor Day Weekend Availability

August 18th, 2016 | The Mohican Adventures Team

We still have a few smaller cabins and primitive tent sites left available for Labor Day Weekend. These can be booked online with a 3-night minimum stay. Our RV/Camper sites are fully booked. 

Autumn Keys to Quicker Check-Ins

August 16th, 2016 | The Mohican Adventures Team

As we get into our off-season and hours shorten, we highly recommend following these keys for quicker check-ins. Preparing for your stay ahead of time will help our limited staff check you in as efficiently as possible and get you to your spot quicker for your relaxing stay! 

1) Pay off your balance ahead of time. This makes your check-in process simpler. Balances also have to be paid off for late check-ins which often take place when we close earlier during our off-season. 

2) Bring everyone into the office upon arrival to receive their wristbands and sign in. All guests ages 4 and up must wear a wristband during their stay. 

3) If you have a change in the number of guests staying, feel free to email (info@mohicanadventures.com) or call us (419-994-2267) ahead of your arrival so that we may have the corrected paperwork printed before you check in. 

We look forward to seeing you this fall!

What Boat Type is Right for You? – Canoe Feature

July 2nd, 2016 | The Mohican Adventures Team

*Part 4 of our 4-part series on which boat type is right for you! Today’s feature is on CANOES.*

canoe_02

There’s a reason canoes are “what started it all” and continue to be the most rented boat style offered. They’re convenient to steer, can comfortably sit two or fit up to a family of four (2 adults & 2 small children), and have the space and design to carry all your belongings, including hard-sided coolers and pets. These flat-bottomed boats offer decent stability while also being streamlined to steer around obstacles or race down the river. In a nutshell, these boats are the go-to choice for paddlers both new and experienced. 

Canoe considerations: Canoes can tip, especially if occupants lean too far the wrong way or you hit objects with force. If you have small children, you may want to consider a raft. These boats also only offer 2 seats, so be prepared for middle occupants to sit on the floor (don’t worry – they’re flat bottomed) or bring a cooler or short lounge chair for the center of the boat.

What Boat Type is Right for You? – Tube Feature

July 1st, 2016 | The Mohican Adventures Team

*Part 3 of our 4-part series on which boat type is right for you! Today’s feature is on TUBES.*

River-3

I’m a tuber! Nothing is more fun to me than sitting and floating peacefully down the Mohican River for an entire day. Tubes keep me cool on a summer day as I can keep my hands & feet in the water and easily hop on and off to take a dip. I’ve enjoyed weekday trips where I’ve sat back and let the river carry all my worries away, much like it does all the work and carries me downstream. I’ve also gone with a big group of friends on the weekend for a busy day on the river, stopping at the snack shops, swimming around deeper pockets of the river, and holding onto each other making a tube snake down the river. If you want to just sit back and let the river do the work, a tube is the boat for you! They are also the cheapest option at $15/tube for the 7-mile river trip.

Tube considerations: These boats are slow! Tubes take an average of 4-6 hours depending on water levels, so planning ahead for a full day on the river is key. On busy river days, you may also feel like an obstacle for other faster boats to paddle around. Many guests will purchase an additional tube for a cooler. Remember your own rope to tie your cooler tube to your own.

What Boat Style is Right for You? – Raft Feature

June 30th, 2016 | The Mohican Adventures Team

*Part 2 of our 4-part series on which boat type is right for you! Today’s feature is on RAFTS.*

035

We are a raft family. Our family has a lot of young children in it. Why do we take a raft? The fun & flexibility! Rafts are the most stable boat style, which allows our kids to bounce around and be kids. Who wants to spend their day on the river yelling at their children to sit still in the middle of a boat? Our kids go from side to side taking in the Mohican beauty and can even jump in and swim along the side without overturning the boat. Rafts are more spacious, fitting up to 6 people, and are great for everyone to be together. I also don’t worry when we get off course and hit something; rafts just bounce off and keep on going!

Raft considerations: These boats are bigger boats that the river doesn’t carry as quickly as other boats. They take an average of 3 hours on the 7-mile river trip depending on water levels and how much you paddle. Hard sided coolers, coolers with hard wheels, and pets are not allowed in the rafts.

What Boat Style is Right for You? – Kayak Feature

June 29th, 2016 | The Mohican Adventures Team

*Part 1 of our 4-part series on which boat type is right for you! Today’s feature is on KAYAKS.*

099

We are a kayak family! There are kayaking options to fit all of my family’s needs. My husband and son like to race each other around river bends. They prefer single, sit-inside kayaks where their center of gravity is lower to the river. The kayaks give them the versatility to paddle quickly down river, power up river, and zig-zag into whatever nook they want to check out. My daughter and I prefer a double, sit-on-top kayak. We enjoy the easy steering that a kayak offers while also taking advantage of the sit-on-top style to have our legs out and sometimes stretched into the river. I also like that if you would tip in your kayak, the sit-on-tops don’t fill up with water (which is helpful when my husband is ahead of me beating my son in a race). 

Kayak considerations: Our shortest trip is 7-miles long, so if a young child is taking a kayak, make sure they’re up for paddling that long. If you’re questioning their stamina, consider taking a double kayak together. Pet owners have also been known to utilize a double kayak with Fido as their 2nd occupant. Just remember a leash for the bus ride back!
