KOA, Pueblo Colorado

We went to Wyoming from Az. and on the way back stayed at the KAO on I-25 south of Colorado Springs and just north of Pueblo.
While the campground is very nice, the horn blasts from the very close train is not. There must be a crossing very close to the campground but we did not see it.
The horn is loud enough to make you jump out of a sound sleep! Normally the trains that are running the tracks are not loud enough to wake us up as the motorhome is usually quiet inside.

We have learned during the last 4 years that KOA is an old indian word for "NEXT TO RAILROAD TRACKS".

The normal noise from the trains going down the tracks doesn't bother us, but these horn blasts seemed like they were every hour and right outside our door!
There is a state 2 way highway next to the freeway there and there must be a train crossing on the otherside of the interstate.
Not a good nights sleep at all.

Twelve years ago the management had me seeing red, so I don't remember the trains. Hope your stay was fine otherwise.

...in addition to being an old indian word for "NEXT TO RAILROAD TRACKS", and short for "Keep On Adding", maybe KOA also means "Keep Overnighters Awake" ?
