The perfect getaways for rest, romance, or recreation

About Us

Like many residents of Athens County, Mike and Shelly Rex met during their college days at Ohio University, fell in love with the area, and never left town. They have lived in their home, a remodeled barn originally built in the 1890’s, since 1989, raising 3 boys and hosting countless pets and stray animals over the years. Lake Hill Cabins were built on their property and began renting in 2003, a successful venture which evolved into renting boats and campsites at Strouds Run State Park, just a few miles from their home. Eventually, boat rentals at Lake Hope State Park in nearby Zaleski, Ohio, came under Rex family’s management as well.

Taking great pride in safety, cleanliness, and excellent customer service, the Rex Family and their staff will work hard to make your visit memorable, whether it is roughing it in the Strouds Run Campground, getting pampered in the hot tub at the fully-furnished Lake Hill Cabins, or boating, swimming, or fishing at Lake Hope State Park or Strouds Run State Park. It won’t take long for you to find a commonality with someone in the family, and feel like you have known them forever.

Stories are told, laughs are shared, memories are made, and visitors become friends. We look forward to meeting you soon!
