KOA Savannah - South

Our grand daughter went to Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, GA so whenever we were in the area we visited with her. This KOA was as close as we could get so we stayed there numerous times during her collage years. It can best be described as the bottom of the KOA food chain. Improvements - if any - have been few and mostly necessary. The sites are level but hard to get into and out of, even the pull thrus. Mainly because of the tall pine tree locations. They have a nice large RV wash rack at the entrance and if you ever stay there during some rain you will find out why, it becomes a sandy marsh. For me, the very best amenity is their large well stocked lake. If there for more than a day or two Iíve always got at least one Bass of more than three pounds from that lake.

KOA Scott, LA

Heading east on I-10 we knew we were going to stay at this KOA because we had penciled it in during our lunch stop. We called ahead to check on availability and were told there would be no problem if we got there early (4 PM).

Little did we know just how tight the overnight parking sites were. But they are easy to get into and with a little maneuvering we got our 57' rig into the 62'-65' (?) site. It was a FHU with 50 amps and CATV & WiFi included.

Easy fuel stop before getting back onto the highway was a plus. All in all a very nice overnighter stopping place.

Nice fishing lake.
Large grassy field for hitting golf balls.
We don't put our big slide out when just spending the night.

KOA Myrtle Beach, SC

This is probably the most expensive one we've stayed at and for sure the strictest. As you can see in the pictures it was the off season. I was here to do some golfing with my brother-in-law - he owns a year round condo - and Linda spent her time at her brotherís condo basking pool side and shopping.


Our site was a FHU - 50 amp - back-in - with CATV. Lots of room and quiet for a KOA. Itís in a great location and easy to get into and out of. A very nice place to stay for a short stop. )If you can put-up with the disposition of the staff).

That is a shame, why did they just tell you they were full. I would be made if I towed and then had to go home.

Thumbs down KOA North Sioux City, IA

Spent a couple of nights here this past weekend as what a disappointment. The only positive element was that the park was just recently purchased by a younger family. It was a breath of fresh air to be greeted by someone that's not old enough to be Muthuzala.

The park itself is not in that bad of shape but the over abundance of long term campers creates a very unpleasant atmosphere. Most were run down with trash and excess clutter every where as well as some make shift skirting. The least they could do is group them together and create a skid row if you will. What a let down.

It'd have to be a premium site. Giving them another chance is one thing, but what are they doing to make sure this doesn't happen again?
