Five Rivers MetroParks welcomes groups, families, or individuals to explore your wild side with camping in many of the parks. Camping is a great way to experience nature at dusk, dawn and even after dark.

There are 14 frontcountry camp areas are available throughout seven MetroParks, including Carriage Hill, Englewood, Germantown, Possum Creek, Sugarcreek, Taylorsville and Twin Creek. Each campsite is unique and provides a different experience.  Most sites are primitive (pit toilet, fire ring, picnic table). Bring gear, food and water. Due to the threat of the emerald ash borer, do not bring firewood to any MetroPark facility. A limited supply of firewood is provided.

Secluded backcountry campsites are offered on the Twin Valley Backpacking Trail.

Permits are required for both front country and backcountry camping. To reserve a free campsite at least one week in advance, call (937) 277-4374 between 9am-4pm Monday-Friday.
