Touring Ohio in a Mini-T Campervan presents a unique blend of adventure and historical exploration. Two standout destinations are the Wright-Patterson AFB FamCamp, exclusively for those with military ID, and the publicly accessible John Bryan State Park. These sites not only provide excellent camping experiences but also act as gateways to the rich history of the Dayton area, including the renowned Wright-Patterson Museum, open to the public.
Wright-Patterson AFB FamCamp: A Military Exclusive
Adjacent to Bass Lake, Wright-Patterson AFB FamCamp is a military-only 54-site RV camping area. It’s a secure and exclusive retreat perfect for Mini-T Campervan enthusiasts with military connections. Offering full and partial hook-ups, dry camping, and tent camping, it's an all-year-round destination. Water activities like kayaking and canoeing add to its charm.
A key attraction near FamCamp is the National Museum of the United States Air Force, located on the base but open to the public. This museum is a treasure trove for aviation enthusiasts, displaying an extensive collection of aircraft and missiles, and chronicling the evolution of flight from the Wright brothers to space exploration.
John Bryan State Park: A Public Natural Haven
John Bryan State Park, about 9 miles east of the AFB, is a public state park offering a tranquil escape in nature. Known for its remarkable limestone gorge carved by the Little Miami River, the park is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. Your Mini-T Campervan can comfortably fit into one of its campsites, surrounded by picturesque landscapes.
Apart from camping, the park is ideal for hiking, fishing, and rock climbing, with trails meandering through stunning scenery. The nearby town of Yellow Springs adds a cultural touch with its artsy vibe, unique shops, and local dining.
