Looking for the best place to go camping in the Midwest? Look no further than Natural Springs Resort as your top Ohio camping destination! Located in New Paris, Ohio only minutes from Richmond and the Indiana border, we’re just a one-tank trip from Dayton, Cincinnati or Indianapolis. And with multiple options for lodging and camping, a 12-acre spring-fed lake, and activities like fishing, scuba diving and boating – you can’t go wrong with a stay at Natural Springs. 

Choose your favorite lodging option

Your first step to booking a stay at Natural Springs is to select your accommodations. For seasoned campers with a sense of adventure, we offer a number of tent campsites at an affordable price. With a recently renovated bathhouse and free Wifi throughout the park, you’ll be roughing it in comfort. If you love traveling in your RV, we have more than 200 RV campsites with 30/50 AMP hookups, pull-thru/back-in options, and fire rings and picnic tables for your personal use. And new for the 2022 season are two additional prime sites for booking!

No RV or tent? No problem! We also offer a variety of beautiful cabin rentals including our mini cabins, loft and deluxe loft cabins, and premium/plus cabins. We also offer rental campers (with a second site added for 2022) for those wanting an RV camping experience! No matter the size, all cabins and rental RVs feature a full bathroom, along with amenities ranging from microwaves and mini-fridges to a fully-stocked kitchen with pots/pans and an outdoor grill so that you can cook for the whole family. Mini cabins house four people and our other cabins/RVs can house up to six, and bed/bath linens are available for an additional price.

Check out our exciting amenities

If you love the water, you’ll be in heaven on our spring-fed lake at Natural Springs Resort. Originally the site of a limestone quarry, our crystal clear 12-acre lake makes us a top Ohio camping destination with activities like swimming, boating and even scuba diving! Play with your family on the beautiful sandy beach or take a walk on the wild side with our floating waterpark or “Wibit” for ages 7 and up. Renting one of our non-motorized paddleboats, canoes or kayaks can provide hours of entertainment on the water, and so can our well-stocked catch and release fishing either from the water or the shore. 

If you prefer a warmer dip in the water, you can check out our heated swimming pool. Your family will also love our inclusive playgrounds and playing together on our basketball and sand volleyball courts. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, grab a bite to eat at our beachside café and grill, and don’t forget our signature ice cream for dessert. Forgot anything at home? We’ve got you covered with our well-stocked General Camp Store (including bait, tackle, propane, firewood and much more). You can even rent a golf cart for zipping around the resort to visit your neighbors or our picnic shelters, historic chapel and lakefront views.
