Where Nature Meets Luxury
Camp Aramoni is bringing world-class hospitality to the great outdoors. Our luxury campground is the first of its kind in Illinois and opens on August 1, 2021. The 96-acre property offers fully immersive experiences including lavish safari-style tents, all inclusive meals and on-site activities in the lush forests along the Vermillion River.
RESERVE YOUR TENT TODAY
The campground features 11 semi-permanent safari-style tents, each outfitted with upscale amenities drawing inspiration from native Illinois wildflowers. The tents include air conditioning and heat, private en-suite restrooms, mini fridges, comfortable beds with luxury linens, personal bonfires, and more. With each tent accommodating two to six guests for a total occupancy of 56, the campground is ideal for private couples’ getaways while expansive enough for corporate retreats and full wedding buyouts. Located at the heart of the campground, The Barn offers spaces for food and wine tastings in addition to dining areas where meals are served daily. The Barn is also home to Camp Aramoni’s general store, Gertie’s, that is stocked with sundries, snacks, grab-and-go meals and curated merchandise. Camp Aramoni's rates are inclusive of all meals featuring seasonal, chef driven menus available en-suite or at The Barn. The tents are currently under construction, and the tent images on this site were provided by Camp Aramoni’s tent manufacturer, Bushtec Safari. Follow our journey on social media for daily updates!

Why yes it is! Glamping, or glamorous camping, combines our innate desires for nature with our modern desires for comfort. However, we prefer the term “luxury camping” to convey the high level of service provided at Camp Aramoni. When you stay at Camp Aramoni, you will experience our luxury accommodations, all inclusive meal plan, on-site activities and unparalleled attention to detail all wrapped into a secluded natural landscape.
You will receive access to your private tent in addition to all meals, a champagne toast upon check-in and gourmet nightly s'mores. Camp Aramoni’s tents are priced for double occupancy (two guests).
