Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains
the Hocking River passes through three Ohio
counties on its way to the Ohio River at
Hockingport, Ohio. The Hocking River is typical of many
eastern North American rivers experiencing
the changes that come with continued
population growth and development.
The Hocking River Commission believes
that development can be planned to be
compatible with the river. Our
goal is to preserve the benefits a clean,
healthy river can provide to the communities
it passes through.
