All of the good comments about the park are true but they are diminished, in my case, by the scam of a $5 fee for early check in because it is their `policy'. That would not be so bad but I cannot find where that policy is stated either in their literature or online The way I found out about it was when we were standing at the front desk paying the balance of our reservation and the Clerk said the fee applied. BTW it's $5 per early hour! We stay at lots of KOA's and this is the first time it has ever raised its ugly head. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The roads are narrow! We hit a tree and damaged the edge of our travel trailer on the way in trying to avoid someone who was parked too close to the road. Trying to get into our site was difficult. It was angled, and we parked on an uneven part of the site at the suggestion of our park guide so that our slide could open without hitting either the electrical post or going into our neighbor's site. As a result, we weren't able to completely level the trailer. The sewer hookup was approximately two feet from our neighbor's fire pit. Our fire pit was on a small flat space on top of a small hill. It would have been very easy to fall or twist an ankle in the dark. Our patio pad was on a raised cement block. It would have been easy to trip on it going up or twisting an ankle coming down in the dark. The men's restroom was pretty dirty before the morning cleaning. There was wet toilet paper hanging from the inside handicap bar and the trash bin was overflowing. On other visits, it was clean. On the positive side, there were lots of activities offered. We didn't avail ourselves because we stayed only one night. The park had beautiful, mature shade trees and was well-maintained and clean. The staff all were nice. I uploaded two photos that show everything that I've described - we were in the middle of the three spaces. You can see the how close together these sites were, the incline where the fire pit was with only a small area that was flat, as well as the raised concrete patio. The second photo shows how close the sewer hookup was to the fire pit in the site on the right. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful and well maintained, except, I-70 is immediately adjacent and very loud and the water supply is the worst we have every encountered. The public water is yellow colored and metallic tasting. Our filters would not take it out. OK to shower, flush and wash dishes, but purchased water for drinking. Otherwise the management and employees do a nice job maintaining the campground. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall a good trip. We stayed in a pull thru site but with the poor placement of landscaping combined with sites not big enough for rvs and tow vehicles (the row in front of our site was blocked by the neighbors tow vehicle when leaving) Not a huge deal to back out but that defeats the idea of a pull thru to begin with. It was the closest sites of any camp ground I've been to. If you have slide outs I highly suggest you watch where you put stage your camper based on the fire pits. Luckily I noticed the placement before we unhooked, if not our rear slide would have almost been overtop of the fire pit, but we were able to back up. I couldn't however help how close the neighbors fire pit was to our camper. Plenty of family friendly activities to do there but per usual, all cost you a few bucks. There's a train ride, hay ride and putt putt golf, for the price you pay for the sites I may have felt differently about my stay if these activities were included in the reservation price. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was level. Power and water were good. Dump was conveniently located. We were on gravel, but we had a picnic table on a concrete slab. There is a very nicely done fire ring. The general facility was excellent and nicely maintained. But our big attraction was their WiFi which was as good as we have ever had available at a commercial campground. We quite like this campground and will return. It is reasonably close to the Museum of the Air Force and Huffman Prairie, the first airport in the world. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

Be sure to visit the Air Force Museum. If you're limited on time, cruise through the first buildings on the beginning of flight, WWI, WWII, etc. as the last and farthest away exhibit has space capsules and rockets and then the presidential planes to walk through.

Beautiful park with many amenities for families. Land is rolling with mature trees and impeccable landscaping; truly a relaxing atmosphere. All staff were attentive and friendly. Our only negative comment is that the PT sites were close together, and it was a bit tight to maneuver through the roads (we have a 45' with tow). Sites are gravel and in good condition, no patio. We would definitely stay here again if traveling to the Dayton area. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

This is another hard park to rate. Our first impression was good, as it is a very pretty park located in the trees. The staff were helpful and we got an escort to our site, always a good thing. The roads and trees and sites are all very close though. We noticed several people having difficulty getting into their sites without driving into other nearby sites (some of which had vehicles in the way). We would probably not come here again because of the closeness. Verizon service was strong. It seemed rather expensive for what you got. There was an upcharge for 50 amps. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

Excellent park. 1/2 star off for ease of parking, sites were really tight. We had to pull through an empty spot in front of our site to get out. We were praying no one parked in there overnight, we would have been stuck in our site until someone moved. 1/2 star off for cafe burgers and fries..... Had to wait 45 mins, they forgot to cook our order. The park is clean, bathhouse clean, pool clean, grounds immaculate. A bit pricey. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Dayton Aviation National Parks. When we arrived, we were not greeted by the staff. I had to tell her my name four times before she understood. Then I asked other staff members how far to the National site. They had no clue. This is a major reason why people come to Dayton. I asked if our site was level and she said, "I think so, yes, it is." The little yellow cart took us to our site and left. Normally at KOA's, they point out where the water and electric is even though we know it. The little things to welcome you. Not here. We tried to make our site work but it was very unlevel. My husband went to the office and they were quite upset. They told us to choose another one. We choose another one close by. Again, VERY unlevel. Most campers here are up on blocks, one side very much unlevel or the front tongue way down. My husband called the office as we were still hooked up and the office was far away. They got quite upset saying they have NEVER had anyone complain about the unlevel sites. They yelled at my husband telling him to just PICK A SITE. How are we to know which sites are available and not? Finally, after 90 minutes, yes 90 minutes, a KOA cart came and escorted my husband with such attitude to a totally different section of the park. Then the owner came over quite upset telling my husband never in his 15 years has he had someone complain about any of his sites. He said he would be right back. We are still waiting for him to return. Most KOA's are extremely friendly and helpful. Not this one. They seem too arrogant and upset that we had a 35 foot travel trailer that we needed to level. They couldn't be bothered. We are upset because they didn't seem to take our concerns to heart but only threw back how great their KOA was. Would NOT stay here again. Internet is also terrible: kicks you off every 3 minutes and you have to re-sign in. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The park is beautifully landscaped and very clean. Appeared to be a great place for vacationing with children. Sites are quite tight and short. Our motorhome is 36 ft long and with the car, we didn't have an extra foot to spare. WIFI is adequate for email and browsing, though it did keep cutting out and you have to keep putting the password in. But it did connect and I've been to so many campgrounds that had absolutely useless WIFI. Utilities all worked well. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

Easy access of interstate with passable interior roads. You are lead to your site, but we suggest you scout the route before moving your big rig. WiFi speed was reasonable and Verizon cell had 4 bars. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

Sites were spacious and fairly level. Gravel. Interior roads were tight but manageable in a 40' RV with tow. A common issue we face in some parks, including this one, is there are trees in the inside of tight turns, so either the trunk will scrape or the branches will.

This KOA is HUGE and one of the most beautiful KOAs we've ever been in. One of the most beautiful campgrounds we've ever been in. There are gazebos and lots of picnic tables and even full hookups for the tent spots - we've never seen that before. There's a creek to wade in, and a mini golf course. IF this KOA had swings and a bounce pillow it would be heaven to us. Oh, and there were two ponds too, with frogs, all sorts of birds, fish. We would ABSOLUTELY stay here again. It was so beautifully maintained, you can tell the owners put lots of their earnings into maintaining this place and keeping it beautiful. It was also super quiet because of all of the trees, it made us wish we were staying longer. If we're ever in the area again, we'll go back, it was just delightful. Water pressure was GREAT here too! We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.

We have been traveling for nine days. This campground is by far the best one yet. Perfectly maintained, with fresh flower hanglng pots on the covered bridge spanning a meandering creek and on the rental cabins scattered throughout. Two lakes with fountains for boating. Playgrounds, minigolf, and even a "pan for gold" activity for the kids, as well as horseshoe pits, basketball court and soccer fields. Multiple loops of shady campsites. Fresh gravel on sites. Each with a firepit and some with patios. A little store, a "cafe" and several beautiful gazebos. Excellent landscaping. So, so nice. It was a shame that we were only there one night. The staff appeared to be mostly college age folks. Very friendly. I could see having a family gathering there. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Motorhome.
