The interesting part is that KOA HQ, in writing, distances itself from the actions of the owners. I joined KOA last year. Instead of renewing that membership this year, I wrote them a letter, explaining why I wasn't renewing. I got a form letter back. I'm sure that it was a form letter because they only addressed one of the four issues that I raised. They claim that the CG owners are independent business people who pursue their own goals. In my letter, I raised concern about the damage being done to the KOA brand by substandard parks carrying the KOA logo and the militancy, including name calling, by some of the KOA owners.
KOA states that they recognize that people who stay over at Wal-Marts are also their customers.
I also wrote to the Billing newspaper, complaining that they allowed the KOA owner to express her opinions (and call RVers names) without identifying her as a KOA owner. I have no problem with her expressing her opinion but want others to understand her bias.
I won't be going to Billings anytime soon.
