Dayton KOA

Brookville, Ohio

Date of Stay:

Too pricey for my blood and I would have preferred "less for less." Still, the facilities were fine although the showers a bit cramped, the water a bit sulfurous and just a degree or two insufficiently heated. The place is well manicured and convenient to I-70 and the USAF Museum. The cabins look very nice for those without a motorhome. No complaints really. But I won't be looking for any more $46 a night campgrounds.

Date of Stay:

We were directed to this campground by the 2008 Passport America Directory. There were no signs . . . none at all. Not on the highway and not on the local roads leading to it. In fact, there was not even a sign at the entrance! When we hesitated at the entrance, were were waved in. It is a beautiful setting. Mature deciduous trees along the banks of the Illinois River with many birds in evidence, including many red headed woodpeckers. However, there were no washroom facilities at all. Also, there had been water troubles due to recent spring flooding and we could not use the water hookup even for bathing in the motorhome. This campground is very out of the way but, despite the water problems, which were surely temporary, and the complete lack of washroom facilities, it was a very pleasant environment. If you do not have toilet/showers on board your RV, consider this place no further. The infrastructure is a bit worn too but our electric and sewer hookups worked fine. Despite the overall seediness of the place, the peace and quiet and the birds made our stop worthwhile and we would seek this campground out again. In fact, it is one we enjoyed a great deal more than other more complete campgrounds. As for finding it, well, here are the directions from the Passport America directory: I-74 - Exit 95 and go north on route 116 for 5 miles, and then exit north on route 26. Then go 3.4 miles to Millpoint Road, go west 7/10 of a mile to campground entrance.

Date of Stay:

Clean facilities but very uninspiring otherwise. Conveniently located to I-80. It will be a decade or more before the trees amount to anything. Laundromat closed at 7PM putting a crimp into our plans. Internet was OK.

Date of Stay:

Facilities and store are very neat. Sites graveled with picnic tables on rather ratty grass but acceptable enough. The place would be pretty confining if full but it was at 1/2 capacity or less on our stay. No hesitation in staying at this place again. Rate was for water/electric. Sewer was $3 more. Free wireless internet cheerfully offered with access codes for each of our two computers.

Date of Stay:

Sites are small, rates are highish and no free internet. Also, while the washroom facilities were clean, toilets did not flush well and were frequently disgusting if the previous user did not take care and patience with them. The toilet/shower/laundry facility is neat and clean overall though. It is also locked, with no access to campers at all from 10PM to 6AM daily. The place is quite busy with most sites seemingly taken by full time residents who do frequent trips in and out during the course of a day making for rather heavy traffic. All in all, I'd rather not stay at this campground again.

Date of Stay:

Excellent park. Well tended and groomed. No problems with free wifi. Spotless washrooms/showers. Copious hot water. Office stays open until 8PM. Walmart Supercentre across the way, and yet the campground was pretty quiet.

Date of Stay:

Usual KOA fare. No complaints at all. Stayed here after finding Kodachrome Basin State Park full. Facilities were spotless. Price included free Wi-Fi.

Date of Stay:

A tired park much in need of refurbishment. Some litter about. The showers, while clean were dark and so used as to appear dirty even though they were not. Very small and cramped as well. Wife decided to shower in the motorhome after I described the facilities. The site marker signs are so rotten that many have snapped off at ground level. There seems no maintenance on anything in quite some time. Still, the electric, water and WiFi all worked fine. There were no sewer hookups available when we pulled in but a dumpsite was all we absolutely needed. This park is adequate but, with only a little work could be so much better. We would stay here again. This is actually our second visit as we stayed here in 2004 as well. Twenty-three dollars with free WiFi seems pretty good compared to what most other parks are offering. Pretty view.

Date of Stay:

Our second review of this park. Hope that is permissible. We stayed here in 2004 as well. Not many changes, but the Passport America rate of $16 per night for a maximum of 7 nights makes this fine park seem an excellent value. Facilities are top-notch although, still being fairly new and in the desert, it will be a long time if ever before shaded sites are available. Wifi is still pricey for a single night at $5, but weekly and monthly rates are available that are fair. Electrical is still metered at 13 cents per kwh for an additional cost of a buck or less per night depending on A/C usage. Obviously a big rig with multiple A/Cs in the hot season, TV, etc will cost more. We stayed for 6 nights and are totally satisfied. If we return to southern AZ we will definitely stay at Tombstone Territories a third time. If you plan to do so, consider buying a PA membership. It will pay for itself in only 3 nights at this one park! We give this place a 10 at PA rates . . . perhaps a 6 at the full $32 rate plus electric as it seems power and wifi ought to be no additional cost for that price.

Date of Stay:

Small campground but we found nothing to complain about. Restrooms and showers were just immaculate. They are key coded for entry and this could be a problem as the office is not continuously staffed and those arriving while it is unmanned will not have immediate access. We stayed two nights and were perfectly happy.

Date of Stay:

No complaints. Simple place. A single, cramped shower that you must request a key for access to but it was clean and we found that no problem. A single toilet each for M/F. Yes, there are trains but not so many that we were bothered although we actually like trains anyhow. Stayed here several nights. We especially appreciated the quail that run about the place.

Date of Stay:

Large campground located out of the way with access on twisty and narrow (but paved) roads several miles out of town. Washroom facilities were average to a little worse but acceptably clean. While there are indeed many un-level lots and they cater primarily to seasonals, we were directed to a level and convenient pull through by friendly staff.

Date of Stay:

Restroom facilities are marginal. Clean enough but cramped with no shelves and only a single hook for toiletries while showering. Connections are for 50 amps only but operator loans out adapters for 30 amp plugs so this is not a minus. Setting is a grassy field but surrounded on three sides by mature trees and set back from the road so as to be quite nice.

Date of Stay:

Washrooms were atrociously filthy! By the amount of dead insects that had accumulated on the washbasins it seemed they had not been cleaned in many weeks. Showers were unusable due to hygiene reasons. All in all, this place is a disgrace!

Date of Stay:

The nightly rate is a guess, as I forget the exact figure and can not find my receipt at the moment. This is an aging "parking lot for RVs," without charm and in need of refurbishment. Building with showers/toilets, etc is new and those facilities were spotless but the rest of the place looks tawdry and the advertised WI-FI we were told probably would not be accessible . . . and it wasn't. We stayed one night and moved on to the similarly named "Mountain View RV Park" a few miles north of Sierra Vista on SR 90. It does not offer any more "charm" but is a bit less tawdry and WI-FI was working.
