Makes me want to go back to Charleston. We visited there when my son was in the Navy. Loved it. Your report on the KOA will come in handy if we ever make a cross country trip.

Hmmmmm I well remember the Halloween "trick" of putting poop in a bag and lighting it on the sidewalk of houses that didn't give us "treats"..... I wonder if "poodle poo" carefully placed on the entry steps might give that camper the needed "trick" to pick up after "fido" ?????

Branson Mo. KOA

Recently stayed at the KOA in Branson,Mo. My dw and 3 girls all had a great time. Very clean and professional. Easy parking as we had a pull through but I think next time I will just back into one of the sites near the top of the hill. We were close to the playground and pool and really enjoyed the time there. Doesn't hurt that there are two vinyards close with free tours and tasting also.

What about the koa in Gettysburg ? My wife and I are newbies and are planning on a near by spot to get used to our new tt after the snow melts. We went up to Gettysburg to check out the campgrounds and thought the koa looked nice. We couldn't get in due to the snow. Anybody have an opinion on that koa? I've heard granite hill can be nice.

We're also curious about the San Diego Metro KOA. It won 2013 KOA of the Year. We'd like to go for a month in January or February 2015.

We LOVE KOA. We've been members for too many years to say. We took a vast trip in the fall, and we mostly stayed at KOA's because we didn't know the East Coast area at all and wanted something safe, consistent and clean. Sure, some have their faults, but it's like visiting an old friend.

Our very favorites on our most recent trip were (all 5s) - NIAGRA FALLS NORTH/LEWISTON, NY - perfect location and right near the Falls and other attractions; 1000 ISLANDS/ASSOCIATION ISLAND, NY - right on Lake Ontario - huge, lovely; QUECHEE, VT - stayed for several days - beautiful; FREEPORT/DURHAM, ME - campsites on the perimeter, all the way around with grass (where we chose to be), large pad sites in the center, and large common area, huge dog run - all very spacious; MYRTLE BEACH, SC - nice large sites, easy walk to the beach; CHARLESTON, SC - used to be a plantation. Has beautiful walking trails and a very large dog park with a swimming park area fenced off in case your doggie needs a dip in the lake).

CRESCENT CITY/REDWOODS CA; CARLSBAD, NM; SANTA FE, NM; DURANGO, CO; CORTEZ, CO; WILLIAMS/CIRCLE PINES, AZ; CANNON CITY/BRYCE, UT; SALT LAKE CITY, UT (all 5s)...we've stayed at so many that we like and too many to remember (45 years of camping as a couple). Compared to a hotel, they're pretty cheap (and even cheaper here in the west). Yes, we love national park campgrounds, state park campgrounds, boondocking in the mountains; but when it's appropriate, you just can't beat KOA, especially when on a road trip.

Not really impressed at all. Was great for a 1 night pass thru. Seleted a pull thru sight via after hrs check in. Wouldn't stay here for a weekend or extended trip.....pull thru sites very narrow. Would stay here again for 1 night while travelling. Very close to highway.....rts 81 and 77.

Cabins had a fence immed out front with camp sites right on the other side....didn't seem fair to cabin renters.

** out of 5
We actually loved having the Wytheville KOA available off Rt 81. Really long spot which we enjoy with our TV and SRX without unhooking, level spot, clear view for our Sat Dome. We will be stopping here every year on the way to Bristol week in August.

Koko, I'll let you know how it is. We've got reservations for 3 nights for this weekend at the San Diego KOA . Our longest trip so far has been around the 500 mile mark round trip. This trip is 780 mi one-way.

Thanks a lot. I'll be waiting for your report. It seems to have pretty reasonable winter temperatures, and it's only about a two-day drive from home. We don't want to be too far away.
