Dayton State Park Campground is a small year-round campground with 10 sites located at the entrance to Dayton State Park. Charging a fee of $15 per night, each camp site has a picnic bench and a fire ring; however, dry conditions may cause fire restrictions for campers. A couple of sites have shade, though most sit beneath the intense Nevada sun. Large RVs will fit at several of the sites, and a dump station sits beside the campground to service RVs for an extra fee.

Notably, there is no bathroom in the camping area. A single bathroom building serves the entire state park, and reaching this bathroom requires a walk down a slightly overgrown path, or else driving to it. Overall the campground is less an example of an impressive outdoor family location and seems to be more of the extremely functionally limited variety. There is a seven-day limit on camping here, and camp fees are payable at the self-serve kiosk at the entrance to the gravel loop road.
