KOA Kabins?

While not exactly an RV question, What is the appeal of KOA Kabins? I ask because I recently stayed at an older KOA where nearly half of their RV loops had been converted to Kabins, and the web site mentioned something about more coming soon.

From what I have seen, a lot of campground's are going this route........rented just about all the time, city folk's that don't want to or just don't own a RV and they want to escape the house and go camping. As mentioned, they are becoming really popular, and when I talk to campground owner's, they are a money maker........

I stayed at a place that had cabins, but not a KOA. The older couple next to me were joined by their kids & grandkids, since the kids had no RV they rented a cabin. Everyone seemed very happy about the arrangement.

We have stayed in cabins at KOAs a couple of times. They are basically a bed in a cabin. One has to bring everything. Contrast that to several state park cabins we have stayed in (mostly in Virginia) where everything but clothes and food are provided. We prefer the older CCC built cabins. Oh, and the VA state park cabins had bathrooms where all the KOA cabins required us to use a bathhouse.

Sometimes we have friends who want to join us at a campground and don't have an rv. Therefore they stay in cabins. Perfect idea for them.

When we did a lot of traveling on motorcycles cabins sure beat the crap out of sleeping in a tent.

A lot of the GA State Parks are putting in Yurts for all of the reasons above.

We just happened to check into Cape Hatteras KOA today for a four night stay in a cabin. We are in a deluxe pet friendly and only need to bring food, clothes, and dog stuff. Everything else is here, including a Weber Q grill so I could have left the Coleman Roadtrip home. I don't own a RV yet and we wanted an early season trip so this met our needs. Plus I get to talk to motorhome owners as I walk around!

The other use for the Kabins is when the coach will travel with a number of people more comfortably than it will sleep that number of people. For example we've used them in the later years of our kid's being in high school when sister and brother don't want to share a sleeping space any more and also when our family of 4 have traveled with our inlaws. Riding with 6 is fine it sleeping 6 is impossible.
