If in your travels you are on I-90 and need a stop in Billings, Montana you should stop at the K.O.A. there. It was the first and original K.O.A. I think it would give you a good idea of what they envisioned others to be. It is a nice park with all the typical K.O.A. amenities plus a pond and right on the river.

We used KOAs on our first cross country trip when we had a fifth wheel. It was a mixed bag but overall they were good. Most are well run and convenient to the major highways. we're not a fan of walmarts

We have been KOA members for several years but do not use them exclusively. Even though we receive a 10% discount we are usually paying more than the competition. However, virtually all of the KOAs we have stayed in are big rig friendly with pull throughs and have clean facilities. We have stayed in a number of KOA's across the country and in Canada and have yet to encounter one with which we were dissatisfied.

Is KOA over priced? Some are, some aren't, just like other RV's Parks we have utilized. I have found KOA's in the NW to be fairly priced and most in CA to be over priced. Using rvparkreviews.com to compare Parks usually works out for us.

Paid 40 dollars at a KOA in Rock Springs Wyo. to park in a stone lot with power and water. If I would of Known that the Wal-Mart was the next exit I would of stayed there. At least at Wal-Mart I would of had a paved spot to walk on, the KOA stone lot I couldn't even walk on with my Crocks with out hurting my feet. No trees just a parking lot I can get that at Wal-Mart for free and not have to unhook the Toad to go to the store. Jim

No matter if it is KOA or not, effective research of campgrounds does pay off. We choose carefully and are never disappointed.
We will soon do a 3-night journey and have pre-selected 3 fine KOAs that will make the evenings pleasant and affordable.

Thanks to all who have provided lots of good information. We will again be beginning our journeys in July when the new Vista should be delivered. It really pays to keep an accurate log of places you've stayed. In the past we've taken notes and listed good sights as well but we've taken them on pieces of paper and lost them. Do it in a good notebook, update it and kept in the coach. Since I do most of the driving the DW can keep the log. Well that's what I think but it's not up to me.
