Hidden Hollow Camp is not open to the public on a daily basis. Reservations are required to use the park and its facilities.

Hidden Hollow Camp is named for the distinct hidden flood plain cut by the Black River. There are many species of wildflowers not commonly seen in our other parks including Blue-eyed Mary, Indian Cucumber Root, and Wild Hyacinth. The forests and thickets provide ideal habitat for migrating warblers. Signs of River Otter have been observed along the Black River, and Gray Fox live in the floodplain forest.

Team building Challenge Course at Hidden Hollow

The park district proudly introduces a new team-building challenge course at Hidden Hollow Camp! As part of your organized youth group’s overnight reservation at the camp, you are permitted and encouraged to use this course with your members. Team-building activities provide great opportunities to develop group dynamics. By participating in these group-challenge activities, your members will learn skills to strengthen their relationships, encourage cooperation and problem solving, develop good communication, explore their talents and abilities, and gain personal development strategies that will help them throughout their lives.

The course was designed to provide you and your group with fun and rewarding experiences that will enhance your time spent at Hidden Hollow and provide lasting memories for years to come. Three different challenge structures provide the basis for your team-building experience and can be used in a variety of ways. Information on how to use the course, along with some of the course components, can be obtained from the park headquarters at no charge. Materials may be checked out for overnight reservations only and will be given to you along with the site key. The key and the materials must be returned at the same time. Failure to return any materials will result in forfeiture of the group's key deposit.


Indoor Camp-Outs
The group activities building at Hidden Hollow Camp can accommodate large gatherings of organized youth groups such as scouts, churches, schools, and other organizations, allowing youth/school-age children indoor camp-outs. The park district also uses the facility for conducting special nature-oriented programs and classes. The amenities provided by the building are rustic, with items such as a wood-burning stove for heat and a food preparation area including an electric range, food preparation tables, and a refrigerator. Outdoor vault toilets are conveniently located nearby. Although there is no indoor plumbing, the frost-proof water spigots with potable water are easily accessible at two outdoor locations. A gray-water pit for disposal of dirty dish water is located adjacent to the toilets. The site includes a campfire ring surrounded with plenty of flexible bench seating for evening programs and a parade ground area with a flagpole for scout ceremonies. There are turf areas for outdoor recreation activities and tent camping.

The camp is made available to organized youth groups for camping and to conservation organizations for nature study, trail projects, and hiking experiences. The rate for youth groups is $1/per person/per night with a $20 minimum. Groups interested in using Hidden Hollow Camp for camping must contact the park office at 330-722-9364.
