Read the earlier reviews. Very high noise level, particularly the trains. Small roads with tight turns for anything over 36ft. Hookups on wrong end of pad. Low water pressure, and you have to share that with your neighbor. Had to drive across grass to reach our site. Run down permanent sites with unfriendly occupants. Park exit is very narrow, and trees badly scratched the side of my coach. I would not recommend this for even an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm glad I visited this campground before reading the reviews, otherwise I wouldn't have camped there. Maybe they've done some renovating in the months or years since most of these reviews were written, or maybe I'm just not picky. Admittedly, my wife and I weren't swept off our feet by the luxury and vast amenities, but we've stayed in worse and paid more for them. We full time so we visit a lot of campgrounds, and I feel Enon Beach Campground doesn't deserve the bad rap it has. While the showers and bathrooms are certainly dated, you get level (mostly paved), shades sites with full hookups and plenty of space compared to other places we've been. There are a lot of full time residents there and the "RV Graveyard" does take away from the coziness a little, but the two weeks we spent there we had no problems with anyone carrying on or making noise, and found all of the folks we interacted with to be very nice people who would do anything to help you before they even met you. The staff was friendly, and they have an entire section of the beach for dogs to go swim in the water separate from the roped off swimming area. There was also a fishing pier and a dock with some paddle boats that can be rented for $2 per half hour. We certainly got used to the trains and the hum of the interstate after a day or two, and honestly didn't notice it after a while unless we were sitting outside. We would definitely stay here again and plan on it in the near future. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A transportation junkies dream! Railroad tracks right outside the park, and I-70 100 yards away. Frontage road and a highway on the other sides! Noisy? This place defines noisy. Also motorcycles and ATV's. Lots of permanent sites, older rigs - thought we were getting into a "Deliverance" campground! Big sign at the gate "No Guard Dogs". A pit bull tied to a golf cart passed us almost immediately. Something good to say? A great spot to watch Norfolk Southern trains and count the semis on I-70. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While this campground is convenient to the air force museum, I would not recommend it. It had very tight turns for a 36' motorhome. It was full of unoccupied junky old trailers and located right beside two freeways and the train tracks. Internet only in laundry room. Too expensive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Oh my gosh!! Wish I had read the other reviews before we pulled in. The place is in dire need of some TLC. I'm rating it a 3 because the staff was very nice: otherwise I'd give it a 1. The roadways in the park are NOT user friendly for big rigs. Trees at the sites need to be trimmed. We had to move because the site we were first in had cedar trees on both sides and we were unable to get our LR slides out. We asked to move and although the staff was very accommodating, she moved us to a site with similar tree issues. The second site was supposed to be a "pull through" but they had only paved half of it. When we went to leave, we had to drive over part of the playground (which appeared to be part of the site in the first place.). Water pressure was very low. Other reviews mentioned power surges, but with a surge protector, we were ok. Lots of old broken down dumpy trailers, some covered in so much dirt/slime and mold, you really couldn't make out the manufacturer. They appear to have been here for quite some time. The "lake" was more of a pond. Didn't see anyone swimming, nor would I go in there as there were close to 35 geese swimming, walking and "doing their business" on the road and beach. Didn't need to worry about people not picking up after their pets, as goose droppings were everywhere! Trains about 100 yards away and yes, blew the whistle as it passed the park (due to the train crossing about 75 feet from the entrance of the park.). Didn't go out after dark as I didn't feel too safe. Seemed more like a rundown trailer park instead of an RV park. Definitely will not stay here again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. Felt it was very overpriced ($35) for the area, sites, amenities, narrow roads and current clientele. This park is not NOT big rig friendly. Grass needs serious cutting! Park does not take credit cards either. I'd recommend a Wal-Mart parking lot first. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first campground in the U.S. It was mid-November and quite cold, going below freezing sometimes at night. We were there six nights. Most campgrounds were closed. There were a number of permanent residents, almost all in rundown RVs and trailers. There were a few regular RV customers. The showers were not heated, and very run down. Water, sewer, and electricity were OK. Wi-Fi was only accessible in the games room. One night there was a birthday party, and another night people under the influence in the games room. We used the Wi-Fi at the library in town. The park would present better in the summer, when I expect there would be families camping, and the unheated showers less of an issue. We would not stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I can agree with a lot of what was said. The place was a little rundown but then again a lot of people will be turned away by the Train and freeway noise. So I can understand why they don't make it a high dollar resort. Its close to Dayton not really a lot choices. The staff was very nice accommodating and helpful. Derelict campers I met two of them one was a out of work Iron Worker who was working for a defense contractor doing the best he could with his 8$ an hour, the other was a retired carpenter. Both were very good guys and I enjoyed meeting them. Shame on anyone who looks down their nose at someone in a lesser financial position then they are. They gave me a good monthly rate like the rest of us they do the best they can with what they have. I would stay there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
So sad! This could be a great campground! Nice water access and easy on/off to the highway, but terribly neglected and run down. Everything the prior reviews say is true. The train is incredibly close and does wake you at 2 or 3 in the morning, even if you like trains. And the collection of derelict campers is pathetic. A little paint, general maintenance, electric stability (yes, we had problems with the electric too: and with 2 dogs in the summer, not something we were happy about), and improved amenities this campground has some potential. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They have a nice beach and children were swimming and fishing. No lifeguards. Nearer to the office the sites seem to be nicer. The campground overall is dirty with small sites. The water pressure varies from average to off. It has a lot of old trailers, 5th wheels and motor homes that are not taken care and lots of stuff piled around them. It is next to a train track where trains run throughout the day and night which adds to the noise. This campground appears to have a younger wilder crowd that plays music, drives trucks and motorcycles until 1 or 2 in the morning. They throw beer cans around. Pet owners don't always pick up. This definitely is not a park I would stay in again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were part of a group of 15 motorhomes ranging up to 42 ft. The park did not allocate enough paved sites for all of us so many had to park on grass sites. It had rained for 2 days and 2 big rigs got mired in the mud. There were quite a few badly kept seasonal sites. Electrical power spiked over 133 volts frequently causing our surge protector to shut down our electric service. There is a nearby train track. It didn't bother us but we like trains. The internal roads are quite narrow and the trees have not been trimmed. Closest to AF museum. Next closest is a KOA that costs almost twice as much. We moved. It was worth it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a dump. Across from our site were 10 or more junk RVs many of which had their windows smashed out and it was obvious they were not inhabited by humans. Many of the seasonal RVs were in bad disrepair. The campsite is located within 100 feet of a railroad crossing and the train goes through 6 to 10 times a day including the night. The train whistle will wake you in the night. The electrical power fluctuates, don't plug in your laptop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have only one word about this place & that is "dump." Overpriced, junky in the extreme. Side by side sites are narrow & the permanent party sites were junked up with old rusty cars sitting around, & other junk sitting out. RVs didn't look like they had been moved in years & were dirty. The whole campground had a look of neglect. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For the love of God I hope you see this before you make reservations! My husband said, "I wouldn't go in there without a full body suit on," when referring to the restroom/showers. He is usually more adventurous then I am. This is the worst campground we have ever stayed in. It's not a campground, it is a dilapidated trailer park full of hooligans on dirt bikes, 4 wheelers, three wheelers (thought they were outlawed!) and go carts.. you name it. If it made noise, and they could get it to start at 7AM and was nuisance, they had it. This place is not safe for children. Friday night, the domestic violence issue woke at least one person in two of the three units in our group, and we were on the opposite end of the place, near the entrance. Thankfully, there was no gunshot. We suspect the Saturday night lights and sirens visit of Sheriff and ambulance to be routine. Others already reviewing this place mentioned the train. We'd like to point out it is TRAINS.. every 3 hours (my husband says more frequent than that!) and they are almost running right through your campsite. We dumped on a site with sewer hookup (fortunately vacated early, probably because of the wake up call dirt bike brat) because the dump station was in the neighborhood where the crack house trailers were. There were TWO different units (if you can call a dump like that a unit) with signs warning "video surveillance"?. They sure aren't protecting their property.. We would stop overnight on a roadside before staying here again. Despite the fact that there are ample dumpsters, the more permanent residents consistently fill their fire rings with trash, including plastic milk jugs.. and burn it.. The place stinks. The few other "visitors" we met were disgusted as well. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Avoid this place. It's a dump. Mostly permanent run down trailers many which are not maintained. Also a couple of rows, as closely parked together as possible, that can only be described as "road kills". They were very old dilapidated remains of campers. Bathrooms were DIRTY and rundown. As others have mentioned this is RIGHT ON the railroad tracks. Trains come thru about every 45 minutes and blow their horns. Trailer Life rated this as a 6/6/5. Who ever did the review for TL was very generous. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We camped for two and one-half months, and this was the worst park of all. We felt unsafe; the facilities were filthy. We did not use the restroom or showers because of the dirtiness of the facilities. One of the female employees had a male friend who was sitting with her on the patio using the "F" word constantly. People were in the park openly drunk. Trash was strewn around the lake. Train went by constantly. Do not use this as the "nearest campground" when you want to go to the fabulous Air Force Museum near Dayton. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were very disappointed when we drove into this campground. The office is new but the bathrooms are in a dilapidated building. They weren't really "dirty" but the mold, falling in ceiling didn't make we warm and fuzzy! Several locks were missing and the shower pressure was poor in the women's bathroom. There are some really rundown trailers around and I wondered about their occupants though I didn't see any. The water connection is a pull thing, not a handle to turn on. The lake does not have sand but mud. The sign in the bathroom says to wash the mud off in the lake or hose off. Mmmm, sounds wonderful. There are about a half dozen pull thrus for travelers. The rest seem to be permanents. There's not a lot to choose from in the Dayton area so I'd stay again overnight if I had to but I would rather not. I'm surprised no one mentioned the train track that is right next to the campground. When you come down the road to the entrance you think you are going to cross a train track based on the signs and then the entrance is right there. It goes as close as it can get without being in the campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Well from the time we got there we new it wasnt as advertised. It seems to be some what rundown with a lower class of locals hanging out there. Very old trailers, very old run down faclities staight out of the 60's. Not really recommended for campers with all their teeth. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Park was crowded and dangerous. Every type of motorized vehicle was speeding around. Carts, scooters, dirt bikes, and ATVs with no regard for anyone. Restrooms were filty. Loud drunken campers and large fires all around the lake. Staff made no effort to control traffic or rowdy campers. Will never camp here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
[ 1 / 10 ]
This place is awful. It is run-down, dirty, and has little to offer. There are many broken down, unkept permanent rigs, and that area had trash all over the place. The so-called swimming lake is dirty and scummy. No one in his right mind would go in it. The buildings are delapidated. I wouldn't even think about using a bathroom here. Fortunately, all we wanted was an overnight site; I can't imagine any camper wanting to stay here. We paid $28 to stay here, and what we wanted most of all was just to leave, as soon as possible. Would NEVER stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
