This is a beautiful park, nice pool, small lake with water fountains, restaurant, etc. Plenty of office help and each camper is escorted to their site. I had an end site so there was plenty of room for me. There are two major areas, one that is closer to the facilities and the other is a little further away, but is very shaded. I guess the only problem are the KOA rates which are always about $10 - $15 higher than most RV parks. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

If you are into aviation, the National Museum of the Air Force is a must see, but allow at least a day to do it justice. You will also want to see the many locations of the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historic Park that has many individual locations for Wright Brothers info.

This was our 2nd stay here in less than a year. Initially we had a small problem with our reservation that the owner personally handled and made it right. I appreciated that he is on top of things, especially customer service. Our stay was as great as the first. Even had the same site as before. Long level pull thru, full hookups. Interior roads are a little tight but manageable. Nice shade. Awesome water pressure. Trash is picked up multiple times a day. We would've stayed a couple days longer but they were full. This park is usually busy so reservations are a must. Very family friendly. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

The park is located west of Dayton in a quiet location. We had lots of rain while we were there, but our site was pretty well drained. Lots of trees, satellite is difficult, but they do have cable. All utilities worked just fine. This KOA has lots of things to do in the park, including fishing, paddle boats and pizza, etc delivered to your site. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Don't miss the Museum of the US Air Force and all of the Wright Brothers locations in Dayton. Skyline restaurant has the famous Cincinnati chili, served with chili over spaghetti, with options of adding beans, onion and cheese-just get the "Five Way", if you leave hungry, it's your own fault.

Big rig friendly with mostly level sites. Showers were great with high water pressure and hot water. This is the first campground I have seen with a television. Laundry was good. Dog park was small but good. Swimming pool was closed due to season. Good for riding bicycle. Could not use our satellite due to trees but cable was good. Due to the special weekend sewer site was not available. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Walmart was 3 miles. Other shopping was about 20 minutes. Dayton was about 15 minutes. Visited the Wright B Flyer Museum and Carillon Historical Park which were both great. Amazed at all the technology that originated in Dayton.

This was a very very nice campground. We had ample shade and nice site. The staff upon arrival was very pleasant and helpful. Very nice little general store and they had a very nice snack shop. There was a very cute train that took kids for a ride around the park. Very nice pool and some nice hiking trails. Very dog friendly also.

Very close to attractions. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

As KOAs go, this is a good one. Our pull-through site was level, but none too long. Utilities were good, including wifi. Employees were very capable and friendly. Interior roads were a bit narrow, but manageable. Approaching the park can be tricky, especially from Brookville Salem Road. If you are heading southwest, it is a VERY sharp right turn onto Wellbaum to get to the park. Better to take Pleasant Plain and turn south on Wellbaum. Expensive as is the rule with KOAs. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

This was the best park we could find within an easy drive of the National Museum of the Air Force, which is why we were visiting Dayton. We have a 36+ Class A pulling a car, and it was a bit tight (but doable) getting around the park and into (and out of) your space thanks to the "curvy" layout of the park's roads and spaces. Excellent WiFi speeds and good cable TV as well. Our ZeroWater tester showed the city water to be in the high range of particulates, so we chose to use bottled water. The park is relatively close to the freeway, so light sleepers (my wife) might be woken up by the occasional loud semi roaring by. Aside from these nitpicks, it was a decent park to stay at, and if we ever return to the area, it will be our pick again. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

If there, you have to see the National Museum of the Air Force (and give yourself several days to see it all). Entrance is free (3D moves inside the 6-story theater are not), and it is simply incredible!

Located inches from I-70, the freeway noise is overwhelming. This is a very tight campground and is difficult to navigate a big camper; especially if it is crowded. The spaces are very tight; not much room for more than 3 or 4 around a campfire. Bathrooms were nice but the water was cold and the not very clean. They nickel-dime you for everything. Almost all gravel, so no scooters. Pool opens late and closes early. We will not return. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 6 nights to see the area.

The park is far enough from I-70 (Exit 24: SR-49, Dayton Greenville Pike) so there is no noise from the Interstate but the last three quarters of a mile is along a rural residential roads (Pleasant Plain Rd and Wellbaum Rd) that are narrow without a shoulder.

This was one of the better parks we came across during our travels in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey. The park was well cared for. There have been some new improvements. And there were several nice features but some of them were closed for the season or only open on the weekends. There was an escort to the site. The basic rate was for 30 amp service. There was an additional $4.00/day charge for 50 amp service.

The interior roads are a mixture of gravel and pavement. Some of them were narrow with tight turns. The site parking pads were gravel. This is another park that doesn't understand the simple concept of the importance of a flat, level parking pad! There are a limited number of sites that appeared level. Those with a pitch had a single or double pitch. Like most KOAs, there is not much privacy between the sites as the sites are very close to each other. The pull-through sites were just long enough for coaches and their toads attached. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50 amp), and sewer. The utility connections were towards the rear of the sites which could require a lot of hose/cables. There was an outside table and fire pit but a neighbor's fire pit could pose a hazard due to insufficient distance with the neighbor has a large fire.

There are basically two different types of camp areas. One has an extensive tree canopy which almost prevents any type of satellite reception. The other has some sites with open access to the sky for satellite reception. There was an adequate choice of cable channels. Didn't try to get any broadcast channels. The provided WiFi was adequate. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Pretty easy access to the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historic Park sites. Plan at least 2 days for the NHP sites. Don't miss the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Plan at least 2 days for the USAF Museum alone - 3 if you want to watch any of the I-MAX movies. We were able to make a day trip into Cincinnati to visit William Howard Taft NHS. And another day trip to Chillicothe to visit Hopewell Culture NHP and Charles Young Buffalo Soldier NM.

Good for an overnight. Super staff. The roads could be challenging in a big rig. We were fortunate and got a site near the office so we didn't traverse the back of the park. The roads to our site (#34) were cautiously adequate in our 45' motorhome towing. The pull thru sites close to the office are long enough but narrow. Not a lot of room between sites. Had to watch the utility post to insure we could open slides and bay doors. We would overnight here again in the same area, but a long term stay is not on our list. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

We needed a campground in this area because we wanted to visit the National Museum of the US Air Force. This KOA had the best reviews and they did not lie! This campground is beautiful, clean, well maintained with the cleanest, nicest shower house we have ever seen. All tile, with a TV and spotless. It's a KOA so of course you pay for the amenities so it's pricey. It's just the two of us so we do not use the amenities for the kids but we still felt it was worth it. There is a farm in the back with goats, a llama, and pigs. No farm smells but wonderful hearing them. We were parked right by it and really enjoyed our site (112). The staff is very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend staying here. It's one of the best. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean campground. Love the trails (for our dogs), the new bathroom is awesome (even a tv in it). Feels like a hotel. Every time we go through that area, this is the campground we go to. From front desk to staff on the ground, all were very nice and welcoming. We had a site with less shade but there are lots of shaded sites too. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

Park is overpriced, even for a KOA. Mostly gravel roads. Turns are tight. We were guided to our site and led through empty sites to get there. Our site was level, barely long enough to fit our 40' motorhome. Park was full during our 2-day stay. Barely room to pull out slides and awning. They don't enforce the number of people that can occupy a site. Our neighbor had 10 people staying in his camper, multiple cars trying to park, huge bonfires at their site 24 hours a day. This is a crowded and busy park and they don't have the staff to oversee or handle any problems. We definitely won't be staying here again. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice park. Typical KOA. Adequate spaces but some can be tight in a 45ft motorhome. Staff was not clear on where to put us. Good wifi.
In a big rig I would recommend going to look at the sites before trying to get in one. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.
