We just stayed at the KOA in Harpers Ferry,WVA and had a great time. 2miles from Historical Harpers Ferry, next to battlefiled, close to Charlestown and shopping. You can go tubing or rafting/kayaking down the nearby rivers, hike trails from the KOA. They have a very nice pool and lots for kids to do. I give it a 4.5!

We just got back from a trip out west to Rocky Mountain National Park and Yellowstone National Park. We stayed at several KOA's on the way out and back.
1. Des Moines West KOA (Adel IA), 3.5 good level site all gravel roads and site. FHU, 50amp sites, pull thru, $37.95 with KOA discount. Easy on and off from I80, but far enough away not to hear highway noise.

2. Hardin MT KOA, 4.5 Great owners, will help you set up if needed and will show you were to park. Park is old, number 4 KOA park but will maintained. FHU, 50amp sites, pull Thur, $38.04 with KOA discount.

3. Bismarck ND KOA, 4.5 Good sites, some seasonal campers but in a different area. Sites have a grass area and trees/bushes blocking other sites views. FHU, 50amp sites, pull Thur, $44.10 with KOA discount.

4. Oakdale WI KOA, 3.5 Great owner he cleans and sanitize the water spigot before you hook-up to the fresh water supply. Level long site, easy on and off from I90/94, but not far enough away to hear highway noise. Our site was less than 1/4 mile from I90/94. Durning the night it is bright enough to read a book outside from street lights and from lighted highway signs. FHU, 50amp sites, pull thru, $37.89 with KOA discount.

We are planning a trip to Yellowstone this next May and we will be leaving northern Indiana and traveling up to North East South Dakota for a few days then heading to Yellowstone from there. We are planning on stopping for the night in Miles City, MT. and was looking at staying at the KOA there (http://koa.com/campgrounds/miles-city/). I was wondering if anyone has stayed at this KOA and can give me some insight on it? There hasn't been a lot of reviews on this KOA and the reviews have been pretty mixed from good to bad. From the web sit it looks like it's pretty clean but have learned in the past that web sits can be decieving. Any input would be appreciated or any suggestions on another campground in the area would be appreciated too.

we Just returned from the "Allentown" (really more like New Tripoli) KOA: (4) they advertise in allentown, but really about 30 min west of allentown,(which worked for us). it was very nice, alcohol free which was a nice change up. they are very strict with rules tho, which is fine buy us cause we are too wifi was very good, prolly cause the place is very small. we were in site 56 which was right along the creek, and was very wide, but kinda short. i almost needed cones for the front of the trailer. seemed like a nice mix up of seasonals and transits. the playgrounds were extreamely nice and kept the children busy for sevral hours. they do have a hiking trial with a really crappy "senic overlook". i didn't see a peice of trash sit very long at all. the empolyee's were on top of everything. we didn't take the pup with this time, we were rushed out of the house after work, but i did take notice that the doggie area was really out of the way, actually it was in the drive way "outside" of the campground, so it was prolly a good idea to leave her home this time. the wash house's were at the office, which i would have thought to be a little out of the way. they claimed to have a "satalite restroom" but we never did find that one. i would have given this campground a 5 but there really wasn't a whole lot to do, but watch the kids play and sit around the fire. which isn't a totally bad thing, but it does get old after a few hours. all in all it was nice. almost every review i have seen was not very good, but dont' let them scare you away. we stayed here on a buy one night get one night free. we will return, again, at somepoint.

as a side note, we went to the lehigh valley zoo, and it was small, but by far the best zoo we been too yet. only 10 mins away

We have been KOA members for the past 5 years. Most are good but there are 1 or 2 we've been to I won't return to. The ones that stand out as great are:

Sugarloaf Key KOA - Especially popular with snowbirds and sites aren't the largest but, it's a clean and fun place. Pricey - $104/night

Hatteras KOA - Very family friendly and like Sugarloaf, right on the Atlantic ocean. Clean, nice size sites and friendly folks.....

Surely, you must be kidding! $104 per night!!! Other than being a "clean and a fun place" what other goodies do you get for that outrageous price?? Does that include meals? You have just reinforced my impression of KOA ----- vastly overpriced and highly over-rated. They do have, however, a lot of nerve!
