Brookville - KOA, OH

343 miles and 6.5 hours from our last stop - 1 night stay


Every Ohio campground we have ever stopped in has been top notch, and this one was no exception. Unfortunately, we got there so late in the day that there was barely time to enjoy its many facilities. However, we decided to give it a try.

All that was followed by a dinner, which didn't get eaten until after 9:00. It was like one last frantic effort to squeeze more fun into the last remaining days of our trip.

Tomorrow we would decide whether we were going to make the push for home--in which case this would be our final night--or linger one more day on the road. I was for lingering and selfishly having the boys for one more night to ourselves. I knew that as soon as we hit the driveway, the phone would be ringing, and they would off and running. I wasn't sure if I was ready for that yet.


The Brookville KOA is an award winning 204-site campground just minutes from I70. Within its lovely park-like setting, the campground has a heated 80-foot swimming pool, a fishing pond with paddleboat rentals, and mini-golf.
