Camping with the Library presents a day of fun activities the whole family will enjoy, from thru-hiking to an acoustic jam session.

As the sun sets, gather around the campfire for a cooking demo and storytelling, then join the Cincinnati Observatory for a tour of the night sky. Patrons are required to register individually for each activity and to secure a campsite. Tent and hammock campers only. 

What to Expect

Camping is free of charge! However, patrons are responsible for their own camping necessities, including food, water, equipment and safety.

Tent and hammock campers only.

The library will have outdoor toys and games available for use along with honor books that may be read and returned to any of our branches or express units.

The program takes place at A.J. Jolly Park’s Camp Whipperill, outlined below in magenta.

The library will mail registered patrons a campsite pass two weeks prior to the event. Passes may be picked up at the campground between 1-3 pm for those who register within the two-week window.

A.J. Jolly Park

We would like to thank A.J. Jolly Park for partnering with us to make this event possible!

The park has many amenities that will be available to campers, including a 200-acre fishing lake, picnic area, an 18-hole Frisbee golf course, and several sports areas.

Patrons may also rent the park’s available kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and paddleboats.
