KOA Charlotte - the KOA office is a gas station connected to a biker bar.. and nothing wrong with either of those, I just don't feel they belong in the same park as a KOA. Lot was all gravel and on an incline. Noisy until 2 AM. Just not happy with this one.. and will not give a second chance.

KOA in Seattle. Site so small you cant open your awnings. Full of full time folks living in run down crap. And people and cars coming in and out at all time of the day and night. The full timer across from me was selling drugs from his TT I watched him make afew sales. And a lot of full timers getting drunk on Friday and Saturday night. Police were called out both nights. I did not feel safe leaving my 5er along when going site seeing.

From what I see KOA's are on the bottom of my list. My brother tells me the few KOA's he has stayed at have very tight camping quarters. I would be camping at a state park or dry camping.

Ditto. This is my choice.

Those big green flies are the worst.

I feel compelled to defend Koa. I just finished a three month trip around America. Koa was consistently better on average. Easier to book online, good size sites, cable and WiFi. I wish I had figured this out sooner. Of couse there were a few disappointments especially on the East coast but in general they were good.

KOA Lake Whippoorwill down in Orlando, they did not like kids at that place and made the stay horrible.

Speedway KOA, Daytona, Fl. Sewer line problem behind our site, shared line with 3 others. Inspection cap 'blew' off a couple of times, neighbors sewer connection was leaky. Took three days of bitching, a call to the county health dept. and an e-mail to corp. HQ.
There were no other sites available, 'Speed Week', Daytona 500. A pricey, smelly stay.
KOA, no way.
