    My wife and I just completed an 8,6000 mile journey from Virginia out west and back. We were gone for 3 months and took care of a lot of items on our bucket list. i.e Bryce,Zion,Grand Canyon and a trip down Rt. 66. It was KOA most of the way and I just want to say how pleased we were at every stop.
    Beautiful parks, friendly and curteous staff who suggested things and places to visit we would never have known about. What awesome memories we have of the summer of 2010.

      Hi Bill – I am planning a similar trip next year from Pennsylvania. Did you have any problems taking this trip duing the summer months, I am thinking of leaving in mid-August and doing most of our traveling after Labor Day to avoid crowds. Also, could you share your itinerary with me? Thanks, Dan

        Don’t miss Mesa Verde. We did that trip last year and that was one of our favorite stops. We also enjoyed the hot springs by the sand dunes in southern Colorado.

        In April, May, & June of 2009, my husband and I completed a full circle trip of about 10,000 miles just in the Western U.S. We saw 40 National, State, & Tribal parks, nearly a dozen military installations (husband is retired Army), and several friends and relatives. Dan asked about beginning the trip in August. Yes, that start date will help to avoid large crowds. However, it is absolutely essential to check closing dates of many attractions and RV parks. The northern-most National Parks (Bryce, Crater Lake, Mt. Rainier, Glacier, Yellowstone) have very short seasons. In May last year, we were unable to go to Crater Lake because of snow. In June, we were snowed in at Yellowstone. You will see some of the most spectacular scenery in the country! Just be aware of the altitude and the changeable weather! Enjoy!

      If you are sharing your itinerary , I too would like a copy, especially of the Route 66 sections. We are planning a similar trip once we both retire, hopefully next year.

    My flat out favourite KOA is The Cookstown KOA in Cookstown Ontario Canada. My next favourite Is The Emmett KOA in Michigan. Both of these Koas go out of their way to provide a pleasant welcoming experience to campers.

    Your best KOA! Picking one is hard. The Oscoda KOA in Michigan and the OKC east KOA in Oklahome have got to be among the top 4.

    A very good time was had by many of us Vintage Airstream trailer owners while staying at the Bozeman, Montana KOA!!! Their pool,water play area and shady sites along a small stream were really a plus!! Nice clean restrooms !!!! We would go there again!

    The KOA in Bristol TN had friendly staff, and the best Ribs ever. They will even deliver dinner to your site!

    We absolutely loved the KOA next to Mount Rushmore!!!
    With a complimentary waterslide and mini-golf as well as a pancake breakfast for $2.50, you can’t go wrong. It is a larger KOA but layed out around a hill, so it doesn’t seem big. The staff was friendly and helpful beyond the call of duty.

    We have been camping at this site for 20 plus years through different people owning it. I have to say that the current people are the best. We feel so at home when we camp there. Amy is wonderful, knowing us who camp and when I call knowing us by name. Her Father Chris makes us feel very welcome, taking us to our site or just stopping by. I would tell anyone to camp here.

    The KOA in Barrie, Ontario, Canada is the best, they have great ideas to keep the children busy, which in turn lets us relax. I just love their Thanksgiving week-end, everyone brings a dish, be it veggies-potatatoes or dessert. The Owners supply the Turkey-Dressing-Gravy, An area is set up for everyone at the picnic tables, under the huge canopy and after grace is said we all enjoy a marvelous Thanksgiving dinner. The Children dress up and do the trick or treating on Sat. evening, at the sites that are marked by a yellow ribbon supplied by the campground. And a great time is had by all.
    The staff are friendly and serve up a great pancake breakfast, it’s the only campgroud i’ve ever been to that you can order up a pizza or garlic fingers and have it delivered to your site. GREAT PLACE TO CAMP.
