Overnight Camping Basics

  • Campsite reservations are limited to nationally recognized youth groups and are free of charge to those groups (i.e., BSA, GSA, AWANA, YMCA Adventure Guides, etc.).
  • We have three campsites available and each holds up to 50 people (tent camping only, trailers and campers are prohibited). Only one campsite per group is allowed.
  • Overnight camping is year round, except during January when the park is closed and is only allowed on Friday and Saturday nights. This excludes holiday and special event weekends.
  • Only youth group members and their leaders/parents may camp. Family camping is not permitted.
  • Campgrounds offer fire pits, firewood, picnic tables and trash collection; which are all provided by Cantigny.
  • Campground restrooms, showers, potable water and recycling bins are located in the Education Center, adjacent to the campsites.
  • Advanced reservations are required. All required documentation must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the campout, this includes: a certificate of Liability Insurance, signed camping agreement and (for boy scouts only) a tour permit.
