We have stayed in a few KOA's, but primarily, we aren't interested in paying the extra cost, since most have swimming pools and other amenities meant for RVers traveling with children. We always use Campground Reviews - Trusted Reviews of Campgrounds & RV Parks and their ratings primarily to decide where we will stay.

We never stayed at a KOA until last September during a round trip to FL. I picked the spots from the Good Sam trip planner. We only stayed at KOAs enroute and the location was based on travel segments and proximity to the highway. I also specified a minimum score in the search. As others have said, some were great, others not so much. All of them had very helpful folks. I made no reservations and had to choose an alternate in mid-MO. Turned out to be a very good problem as the second campground was much much nicer, even though it was 4 miles from the highway. I learned on that one. Sometimes the better are not as convenient.

Based on my very limited experience, I have no complaints about KOA.

Always a nice park BUT for more money than I wish to spend.

We've stayed in our fair share of KOA's. When we lived in Illinois, most of the parks were overrun with party crazy people, children running amok, and boozy campfires at night. However, we've stayed in some fantastic KOA's in other parts of the country. I also think it's really location, location, location and how well the owners/staff keep up the place. They are an expensive option.

As someone who plans stops about eight hours in advance, I’m a fan. And the staff have been very friendly and helpful, every single time.

Some like KOA. Some don't like KOA. A KOA is not my first choice however if nothing else suitable is available I know what I am getting at KOA. Just like any restaurant chain KOA is fairly consistent.

We joke about them. They are usually near an interstate exit (noise) & often it seems near a RR (more noise). We used to have the membership card but found we seldom used it. We are well equipped to overnight on an inverter so for a one nighter Wally will do as long as it is not too hot.
