Bass Lake Recreation Area is located in Area A on the north side of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, OH. This is a typical military FAMCAMP arrangement with side-by-side sites fairly close together and there is little shade. The campground is well-maintained and provides a convenient place to stay when visiting the Air Force Museum. Use is restricted to military personnel.

Date of visit: June 2017

This is why Bass Lake is so popular - its proximity to the National Museum of the United States Air Force. It is an immense facility with eight huge galleries providing a fascinating look at the history of aviation. It contains an absolutely amazing collection of aircraft and artifacts.
