Dear Shoot The Hills Photography Enthusiasts:

We feel so fortunate to have a group of people like you with such enthusiasm, who share out love for the Hocking Hills State Park and all its beauty. Thank you!

As most of you are aware, we recently lost out beautiful Hocking Hills Dining Lodge to a devastating fire, which has deeply impacted many people from employees, to locals, tourists, and surrounding businesses alike. Additionally, it has affected the many programs that relied on this wonderful gathering place. Rest assured, a new lodge will be built! The State of Ohio has jumped into action. Once the current site is cleared for cleanup, the State will begin sharing ideas and schedules for rebuilding. However, this process will take some time.

With that being said, it has caused the Friends of Hocking Hills State Park (FHHSP) organization to make some hard decisions. Unfortunately, without the proper facility and other necessary support to hold an event worthy of your participation, FHHSP has voted to suspend Shoot The Hills 2017 and 2018 while the new lodge is being constructed, and plans to resume the event in the spring of 2019. It is our hope that we will be back bigger and better than before and with a state of the art facility to host in!

We trust you will understand and will remain passionate about the Hocking Hills and Shoot The Hills, and dive back in when the Shoot The Hills event returns. As always, we welcome your input and believe the new lodge will provide an amazing event experience in the near future.

Keep snapping and stay in touch!
