Quiet Hours

Site Requests

We understand that you may have a particular site in mind when booking a reservation at Dayton KOA. To accommodate these requests we require a $25 site request fee which places a lock on your reservation. Due to constant renovation and updates to the campground amenities and sites, we cannot guarantee that the site you request during booking will be the same site upon arrival. Should the site you requested upon making your reservation be changed for any reason, you will be contacted by a staff member prior to your arrival. The site request fee is refundable should your request not be accommodated due to extenuating circumstances.
