I didn't know that she owned 3 RV parks. This is good to know. We used to stay at the Bozeman KOA (the key word here is "used to" ) but I hear that there is another nice campground in Bozeman, too.

We avoid KOA because they are so expensive. Charge extra for this, that, etc. There are too many reasonable CGs around.

Here is the reply from KOA on the matter.

Dear Gerald:

Thank you for your recent email regarding Kampgrounds of America Incorporateds position regarding overnight stays by recreational vehicles in parking lots such as Wal Mart stores. The topic has received much attention on the Internet, and some of that information has been misleading.

Kampgrounds of America Incorporated takes the very same position on the parking lot issue as the Wal Mart Corporation has stated over the years. We both believe that it is a matter best handled at the local level, taking into account local laws and ordinances. Kampgrounds of America Incorporated has no company policy in place that in any way encourages any actions to bar overnight stays in parking lots at any locations.

Due to our position as the leading brand in the commercial camping industry, its inevitable that our name would be attached to the debate whenever the issue of overnight stays in parking lots is raised, even though we take no official position on the issue.

Kampgrounds of America Incorporated, or course, highly values all campers, including those who occasionally stay overnight in parking lots such as Wal Mart Stores. In fact, our studies show that approximately 20 percent of our own KOA campers stay overnight in a parking lot at least once a year. We understand that a large percentage of parking lot campers are our campers, too, and that is why we take no corporate policy position on parking lot camping.

Its also important for you to know that, for the entire 43-year history of Kampgrounds of America, we have been a system of independently owned and operated campgrounds. That means our campgrounds are owned by independent, entrepreneurial local business owners who make their own decisions regarding their campground business operation.

Our system prides itself on delivering a high quality camping experience. We feel that our KOA Kampgrounds offer the very best in safe, clean, fun and affordable family camping, and that campers seeking those services will continue to stay with us during their travels.
