Now that iconic 1980s video game Oregon Trail is back, you and your party can avoid contracting dysentery while you cosplay in a vintage Conestoga Wagon.

Hocking Hills' Hilltop Resorts and Campground has just introduced a new, old way to camp with this wagon.

"Originally used in the 18th and 19th centuries for moving freight, this 18-foot covered wagon comfortably fits up to four guests with a king size bed and twin bunks, air conditioning and Wi-Fi," reads a press release. "Bathrooms, showers, laundry, picnic tables and other amenities are all found at the campground."

The wagon rents for $119 per night.

Hilltop Resorts offers a variety of novel stays right next to Lake Logan. Rent everything from a deluxe RV to a farmhouse cabin or "glamping" tent, with a fridge, microwave and fire pit.

"Hocking Hills visitors enjoy on-site hiking, fire rings, hot tubs and other outdoor spaces that offer natural social distancing, yet endless stunning surroundings and a complete change of place and pace," says Hocking Hills PR coordinator Sophia Winegard. "All Hocking Hills area businesses are working very closely with state and local health officials to ensure the safety of visitors and local residents."
