Anyone going to the Ham Convention in Dayton in May?

We plan to attend the Ham Radio Convention this year in Dayton, Ohio in May. Can anyone recommend a good place to camp there with our Airstream?

I always plan on going ,If I get there is always a different matter. There is a KOA on OLD US 40 . I think its classed as Dayton. Its about 9 miles from the arena,better book early.
I have no facilitys for Sewer but If U wanted to park with elect and water U would be welcome. Im about 2 miles from Hara Arena.

We were at the Dayton KOA last spring...didn't know anything about a convention but it was a great campground and full of neat people attending a Ham Convention! Our lot backed up to a little creek... and busy as it was... it was a quiet stay for us!

Have fun!!

Its May 16-18. Here's a link to their website. 2008 Dayton Hamvention® - The Greatest Amateur Radio Convention in the World!

Thanks all for all the info on the camp site and the invitation for a hook up. I'll talk it over with Ham Husband, Ron.

I will be there as always. Sites 2314-15 and 16. Look for the Military communications shelter on the back of my silver Dodge Ram. I have been to the KOA just west of Hamvention exit off 70. Its a REALLY nice Campground. If I was taking my A/S thats where I would stay for sure!

I hope u have a plan to visit after hrs of course . I bet MaryLou could find an adult beverage or two. We are only bout 7 miles from that KOA. Unless I see you first. My sister is calling a family get-together in April in Howell (closer to Brighton) one never knows what might happen. After this month of Feb I never know anymore with the loss of 3 family members.

Hey Otters,

Great idea, after all, Peeps prefer Ham over other farm animal friends! How exciting to be planning a big trip...you are gonna love it.

Hi TM,
Our Peep is actually vegetarian. He thinks we 're going to the Ham event to protest with other PETA members. Missed seeing you guys at the last couple of So Cal Rallies. Hope its not too long until the next Cal Streamers Rally for us. When I think of the big trip, I keep thinking of your AS mid-west trip running from the Tornadoes. Hope we don't have the same experience!
