Sweet Spot by Yellow Springs

1 site · RV, Tent5 acres · Yellow Springs, OH
Learn more about this land: The campsite is in an open meadow on our 5 acre property, next to the ruins of what was one of the oldest barns in the county (there are still some beautiful stone walls left). You will be surrounded by trees and the spot is completely private. Directly across the road from our property (a 5 minute walk) is the Little Miami Scenic Trail, the third longest paved trail in the US (amazing for biking). The unique village of Yellow Springs is only a 5 minute drive away with a great local grocery store and several cafes. Included in this campsite is access to our 1830s spring house if you want a refreshing dip! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE BOOKING.Notes: 1) For camper vans: we do allow camper vans (not RVs or trailers) but you will need to park at the entrance of the meadow where there is gravel. Recently a camper got stuck in the meadow due to rain/mud (which is why we do not allow RVs or trailers). 2) We are still building a compost toilet so the option on the property now is to dig a cat hole at least 6" deep. There is an open public toilet in Yellow Springs and several businesses with open bathrooms. 3) The spring house is not secluded, you can see it from our driveway. We regularly let it drain and it fills itself up. Water level depends on rainfall. It is cold but perfect for hot days! 4) The campsite is right off of Route 68. You cannot see cars from the site but you can hear them. The amount of noise from cars is lower at night. 5) The meadow is ideal for tent camping, though it is NOT a built campsite so it is not perfectly level throughout.

Choice of wide open spaces, partial or full shade spots available. Short walking trail along the creek line is maintained. 'Rocky Cross' Geocach nearby. Please be aware that if we have had a lot of rain, the creek side spots may be too wet and difficult to get back up the hill with the wet grass.  If this is the case, we do have the gravel barn driveway that can accommodate your stay. During peak busy season, the barn drive may have additional guests due to site, weather or general camping conditions. The barn drive offers a view of the creek area about 100 feet away and is about 175 feet from the patio common area. WiFi covering the entire camp and all cellular carriers work great here. 30 Amp electrical in many spots. White tank water fill is available in select locations.

Just mention you would like the details on the premium WiFi upon arrival! **Please read the following advisories and restrictions** =================================================== ! TRAVEL/ROUTE RESTRICTIONS ! (State Route 127, Northbound) If traveling here from the South (only on Ohio State Route 127), please note the height restrictions on three roads that connect SR 127 with the parallel Wayne Trace Road. The names of the roads to avoid: Consolidated (Height restriction 9' 9" under the railroad) Brower (Height restriction 10' 0" over Seven Mile Creek) 7 Mile Road (Height restriction and very sharp turn to bridge) Please watch what route electronic devices may may pick avoiding these routes. A suggested route from traveling North on State Route 127 to Camp Rocky Run is to turn in Camden, OH on State Route 725 and head East to Wayne Trace Road. !! NOTE on RV types !! You must have a self contained RV with on board restroom facilities. We have no restroom facilities available. For this reason, we do not offer tent camping.   !! NOTE on camp fire location !! The fire ring provided on the shared creek side patio is the only spot a camp fire, of any kind, can be built. (Sorry, but we have had too many damaged spots in the grass from the use of 'portable' fire ring units.) !! NOTE on Class A RVs with towed vehicle !! If it is too wet to access the creek side spots, we can still accommodate your stay in the nearby barn driveway but if you are unable to back up with the 'toad' then a detach will be required. Again, this is only if it is too wet to access the creek side camp spots. Generally we will be able to help you back in, but at times we may be away and suggest a helper in guiding you into the barn drive. Note, the barn driveway is not a pull through site.

RV camping near Dayton guide

Overview

Stop between Cincinnati and Columbus, where you’ll find miles of state parks that define Dayton, OH camping. Start your next Dayton camping trip with a visit to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, located in Riverside. Closer to central Dayton, you’ll find art museums, mini-golf courses, and Carillon Historical Park, which the whole family can enjoy. If you’d rather skip ahead to all things nature, both parks and creeks surround the city. Yes, Dayton may be the birthplace of aviation, but you won’t want to take flight once you’ve checked into your Ohio campsite.

Where to go

Caesar Creek State Park

You may be far from the Great Lakes, but just east of Dayton, Caesar Creek State Park comes with public beach access and boat ramps. If that’s still not enough water for you, book a campsite with a swimming pool and perhaps a view of the creek. For the best vantage point, however, head to the state nature preserve, where you can glimpse gorgeous gorges while hiking.

John Bryan State Park

If you're looking for something more grounding—or perhaps something rockier—John Bryan State Park has you covered. Adventurers will love tent camping near the park’s hiking and biking trails. But the real charm of the area is in its rocks. Let your adrenaline soar as you summit the rocks at the park’s designated climbing area. Top off the day’s events with a s’more around the fire pit.

Twin Creek Metropark

Dayton’s not finished with its parks quite yet. Enroute to Twin Creek Metropark, you’ll encounter no shortage of Dayton campsites. Extend the day by hiking, fishing, and riding horses. Then, unwind for the night at another kind of park: an RV park. Book a site that comes with full hookups and a fire ring. What better way to relax in the Dayton area?

When to go

Midwest winters have their reputation for a reason. For the most pleasant camping experience, head to Dayton when the weather is warm. From mid-spring to mid-fall, campers will get the most out of Dayton’s great outdoors. June, however, is known as the city’s rainiest month, so plan accordingly. You’re certain to stay dry—not to mention entertained—on an RV site with communal activities, or while in an A-frame with board games and cable TV.
