I stay at local RV parks if I can. But if I can’t KOA is my choice. I took a look at the campgrounds near the Grand Canyon and realized if I want a full hook up and some place that looks clean and well maintained I need to do a KOA and we did. 75 a nite is not bad compared to some of the hotels in the area. Plus they can hook you up with tour companies and even reserve them for you. I hate to say it, like it or not, KOA does serve a purpose. We… Read more »

Agreed. When I have a choice, I always choose KOA’s. Even though not all of them are perfect, at least you have some idea of what they will be like. They are a bit more expensive, but worth it in my estimation. My husband and I camp with a small motorcycle camper, so we like having the bathroom and shower facilities. Like the camp store too.

What is this crap on your drone give away? They want your birthday and address sounds like someone who wants my identity. This web site is turning into a scam and all they want is mopney. Not from me

Chuck Woodbury

Jim, Of course, I resent you calling this website a scam. We used to run these Amazon contests often and they were very popular, with virtually no complaints from readers. The contests are very easy for us to set up and run and fun for most readers. We pay the retail price for the prize (plus postage and shipping) and do not receive even a single penny from anyone.

While my wife and I do make a few trips a year with our travel trailer, my enthusiasm for RV travel has really waned in the last few years. The general availability and quality of RV parks seems to be decreasing rapidly. Sometimes it is all I can do to force myself to make do for the night, and wonder how some other RV’ers do an extended stay at these places. Using our RV still allows us to avoid three meals a day in restaurants, lets us bring our dog with us, and lets us sleep in our own bed… Read more »

So KOA wants to build a campground in an area that we want to get away from or build one that no one could afford to stay. They need to concentrate on setting up reasonably priced camping areas.

Haven’t stayed at a lot of KOA’s, but those i’ve stayed at were reasonably priced (at least to me).

What do you consider reasonably priced

I agree with John. I have never found a KOA that was reasonably priced. Additionally, it does appear RVing is heading towards being a rich man’s pastime what with more and more camping “resorts” being built or bought and changed to same. Boondocking is sounding better and better!

We’ve stayed at several KOAs and while they can be a bit more expensive than smaller parks, the service at all of them has been exemplary. They are clean and well patrolled by courteous staff. We have always felt safe and appreciated at KOAs.
