Rye Camp R with Flowers

We believe that nature nurtures the soul.

Rye Camp started as a dream...a place to go and escape the daily city life. A place for our children and explore, discover and get dirty. Screen free. It developed into something we wanted to share with all of you. Come and experience what we have to offer. You don't have to go away to get away.

Get dirty

Be a kid again. Get out there, run, play and forget the daily grind.

Remember what it was like to be a kid? Care-free, out in nature, not worried about a little dirt. Enjoy outside again. Escape the grind and embrace the grit.

The perfect, simple weekend getaway.

You don't have to go away to get away. Rye Camp is an ideal weekend trip for Ohioans. A perfect way for friends, family, and couples to make memories.

Explore the beauty native to the midwest.

Fields of juniper and aster, bright honeysuckle berries, and swaths of sycamore trees define the environment.

Recharge. We have everything you need.

Whether you stay in one of our bell tents or A-Frames (coming soon) or pitch your own tent, you can add pizzas, smores kits, firewood, and even Rye Camp merch to your stay.

As a family, we were all getting pretty fried by the daily grind. We had an amazing weekend at Rye Camp. It was just what our family needed to recharge.

"My family and I had a wonderful getaway at this hidden gem! It’s close to home (Dayton) but feels worlds away! Even though there were other visitors, we felt like we had the whole campground to ourselves - a major plus! The Rye Camp Team thought of everything down to a S’Mores Kit and pizza delivery! Glamping but getting away from it all! It’s on our list for this year!"

Aaron Reiff

"Rye Camp is such a special place!  I love the community campfire area. I attended the summer and fall campfire evenings! It is beautiful and peaceful. Lena and Jason are great hosts!"

Barbara Miller

"My daughter and I spent the night here in one of their amazing glamping tents. It was such an amazing experience and was way above our expectations. The beds were so comfy, and they had games for us to play. This place makes camping easy as you don't have to pack a million things in your car. During the day, we explored some of the nearby parks and just overall had a fantastic time. She has already asked me when we are going back!"

Sarah Doczy

"We had a great girls night at Rye Camp. Four of us stayed together on property and it was a great alternative to the typical dinner and drinks. I would love to come back with my family."

Emma S.W.Durocher

"Everything was perfect...clean, private, fresh water, games, big campfire circle. Communication with owners was easy."

Marjorie Harrell

"I really enjoyed my experience at Rye Camp! I've been there twice now. Once in my own tent and another in their large tents and both time it was perfect! It feels very private and safe on their property and I look forward to coming again!"

Chelsea Hall

"It was an amazing experience. Each campsite is surrounded by trees and plants, also have your own picnic table and cornhole plus fire pit. I asked for firewood and they set it up all I had to do was light it. The Bell tent we stayed in was amazing!! So clean and cute. The beds were so comfy to sleep in. When we stayed it was slightly cold and they left hand warmers , a flashlight and walkie talkies to use. Will definitely be going back!"

Morgan Hatten

"What a perfect romantic getaway! My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful snowy night at Rye Camp and will definitely be back. Our bell tent was the most comfortable I have ever been while camping, and we loved being close enough to town to bring a hot dinner from our favorite restaurant with us."

Lindsay Woodruff

"Remote yet close to home peaceful ! You can go primitive or total glamping with their set-up site! Really loved it that my daughter and friends shared it! Bring your furry friend for fun outdoor experiences! This place has large group area for Kumbaya as well as your own private setting near your site! Cherish this place and the memories you make here!"

Rebecca Combs

"Such a cozy little camp site. So private. My fiancé and I and our son got the primitive site and even with that we loved it. We had a cute little camp fire and the vibe of the place was beautiful, especially at night. We will be back! Thanks Rye!!!"
