We haven't stayed there but the KOA campground in San Diego appears to be very nice. I store my rv there, the price is not too bad. Every time at least on weekends I see that they have a band a rock climbing wall some sort of events for the kids and they have these nifty looking 3 seater bicycles that are controlled by your arms at your sides. The spaces are pretty wide from what I can tell. I have never noticed that people with slides are close to touching their neighbor.

We have been fulltiming since January and have used KOA's probably 60% of the time. We have not stayed in a truly BAD one yet. Yes, they are all privately owned so standards and layouts do vary, but the one consistent theme is that they always listen to complaints and act on them. One manager actually told me that this is because they don't want bad reviews that could cost them their President's or Founder's award the next year. KOA can and do pull franchises if there are consistently bad reports. One other thing that we like: There is a "one hour full refund" policy printed right on the front of the KOA Directory. If there is something you don't like about the place in the first hour they will give you a full refund no questions asked. Haven't had cause to use it yet, but its comforting to know its available.

We generally stay in KOA, when we travel unless we know the campground in the area is good. We have found the KOA's have less surprises. We have had a few bad ones over the years but none we considered leaving. We have made two trips from Louisiana to Yellowstone by way of South Dakota, and all the KOA's on this route were good. I have found their prices compared to other private cg to be about the same.

Most of the koa's we've done have been "where we gonna stop tonight?" Kinda stops.
For the most part doable for a night. Many very nice. More just flat cost too much.

$$$$ drove past one near Cherokee NC. Last month where the sites looked average in size. But the prices were unbelievable. They started at $89 a night for their value sites, up to $129 for the premium sites. You have to be nuts$@&:/@?.....

Please post in rvparkreviews.com so others can know about the good ones, Unfortunately we hit more bad than good so read the reviews and try to find the best cmpgrnd in the area. We also use Passport depending on the reviews for that park.
