I have stayed at one KOA. Pprobably will never stay at another one. I am a state park/COE/NFS kind of camper. Average cost less than $30 a night.

I'm a National Forest boondocker but my wife is a KOA Kamper so we alternate or compromise with NF or State campgrounds

X2. We were there a year ago. Had a great stay.

We are just completing a 15 day 2k mile trip all of which was spent on private property until tonight. We decided to split our last days drive and pulled into the KOA in Calhoun GA. This is my first KOA stay and have to say..If they are all like this place I will be giving more of them a try. We were greeted with smiles and treats for our dogs then minutes after being in our spot the cart pulled up with fresh hot chocolate chip cookies. They have a cute little petting zoo with friendly animals. One of the most beautiful peacocks I have ever seen and even offer food delivery to your spot made to order.

Currently in the Klamath Falls OR KOA. Got here Thursday night so the DW could participate in the Master Regional Rowing competition. We're here thru Monday and then headed for Lassen NP where we'll stay in the park. Nice folks and just on the edge of town so close to the rowing. I use KOA's mostly as on the way places to stay, great for one night as the are usually close to the main road, and mostly clean. If it were not for the racing I would not spend 4 nights in one. Rather be up in Crater Lake.

Spent 6 days at Association Island KOA on eastern end of Lake Ontario in Henderson Harbor. Very clean and friendly staff. Has its own marina and rental kayacks and canoes. We enjoyed our stay

We prefer state parks, etc. but occassionally a KOA happens to be the best option near where we want to be. Since we do not have kids, and tend to travel during the off season, we really never take advantage of all the activities and ameneties that most KOAs offer. Ones we have stayed in recently:

KOA Virginia Beach, VA (4): Twice now, because of high winds, they would not let us on the Bay Bridge Tunnel, so we ended up in the KOA for the night. Seems nice enough, with a variety of different types of sites from tent to full hookup pull throughs . Not that close to the beach, but I was told they offer a free shuttle during the season. Depending on the wind direction, the adjacent Navy Air Station can be noisy, but the planes are fun to watch, and shut down at night. Around $60

KOA 1000 Islands/Ivy Lea Ontario, Canada: (5) very nice park just full of families, and bustling with activities. Had a deluxe site with patio with furniture, fireplace, etc. for around $60 a night.

KOA St. Augustine, FL (4): Could not get reservations at Anastasia SP, so ended up in the KOA for like $75 a night. Pretty place with a nice duck pond, paved sites, pool, etc. Close to downtown and the beaches - right up the street from the State Park.

Fayatteville/Wade KOA, NC: (4) We usually stop for the night at Pedro's Campground at South of the Border for $22, but it was Academy Award night and Pedro's didn't have cable. Got a pull though grass site (no sewer) for like $35. Was off season, and most guests were snowbirds like us, but it seemed to have all the KOA stuff. They have since installed some bare bones pull throughs right at the gate for transients, but I do not know what they charge.

Just a note about the Florida Keys - daily rates are high. Even if you manage to get into one of the State Parks, sites are $38 and don't have sewer and stay is limited to two weeks. You will be hard pressed to find a private campground for less that $100/ night. We paid $125 at Gieger Key for a waterfront site with full hookups last February, and it was fantastic! New Mexico is nice, but it is pretty far from the Ocean .....

Koa

If you are in the midwest around Branson, Mo. I would highly recommend the Branson KOA. They have the best customer service and best accomodating staff of any KOA I have stayed at. Average price with a KOA card deluxe site about $45.

One KOA I would not recommend or stay at again is the Nashville KOA. $60. plus and no sleep for the weekly drunk day workers. Can not believe they allow it to be called a KOA.
