|A Place to tell everyone, KOA's Rot||Gary||1-2-03|
|I tried going to KOA's own web site to tell them that every KOA I stayed in from Northern Nevada To Miami Florida, and to Bolivar Missouri, Rot, Big Time. But there web site is so screwed up, it wouldn't go through.|
Why does KOA Suck you ask, I could not find one of them that was Y2K compliant, meaning no Modem plug at the campsite. They only have them in the office, and thats only until 9:00PM.
Something else that really Pi**ed me off about every KOA I stayed at was the Dirt Parking Pads, Not One of them were level, always that low spot on the front or back, and just on one side. Who wants to fool around with leveling blocks and what ever it takes to get half way level, after a day of fighting traffic, winds from ever direction, except the way you are going, the long lines at the gas pumps, on fuel islands that aren't big enough to sling a cat, put they expect you to get that 50 feet of nuts and bolts your trying to maneuver around in, without hitting everything that's, as far as your concerned, shouldn't be there in the first place.
And what's with the $50.00 limit at the gas pump? You have to put your credit card in again, for another $50.00, and so on, and so on. With today's gas prices, they should know a $200.00 limit would be more like it, Right?
Anyway, getting back to KOA, that was the biggest waste of $10.00 I ever spent for a campground membership. My best experiences with camp sites were at the Mom and Pop camp grounds. Seems like they always had the Modem plugs right at the campsite, right next to the cable TV plug.
On the cement parking pads, that were designed so if you pulled up or back, you could find level, without using blocks and so on. And they Were Always, less expensive than any KOA, I've ever stayed at.
I do remember having good experiences at "Good Sam-park" like the one in Amarillo Texas, www.overniterpark.com. easy in, easy out, and the over head Air Show while I was there, was unbelievable, there's an airport close by, after 10:00PM the planes come in from the east, so it was quiet at night. If any of ya get threw Orange Texas, there's a nice Mom & Pop campground there - $13.00 a night full hook ups, no modem tho, big trees, wild animal life, walking trails into the woods, and two very nice and helpful people running it, I highly recommend this one.

|My experience with KOAs has been teriffic also. My favorite is the Staunton /Verona KOA in Virginia. The have plenty of things for my kids to do. Swimming, fishing, tubing in the river. They even have a waterfall on the campground. They have a country band on weekends Definately not over priced. Very nice staff. Their website is www.svkoa.net|
