Haught Run Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Haught Run is another of the four campgrounds that exist along the Covered Bridge Scenic Byway and the Muskingum River. There are a couple of ways to see it. In spring, early summer or whenever there’s enough water in the river, you can paddle this. The water will be brown; Muskingum is a Native American word for “muddy river,” after all. But it’s a nice float—considered southeast Ohio’s best, in fact—that will take you past historic barns, century-old farmhouses, covered bridges, rocky bluffs and some picturesque farmland scenery. Bring your fishing rod and camera. Anglers who cast into the Muskingum can find smallmouth bass, panfish, and muskies, while wildlife watchers can expect to see animals typical of a lowland hardwood forest, like white-tailed deer, raccoons, muskrats, frogs, herons, and more. When the water’s too low to canoe or kayak, or when you just prefer traveling by foot, you can hike."
