It sounds like they are not quite at the consistency that other franchises strive for (Hey, say what you will about McDonald's, but of you order a burger, you pretty much know what you're getting, anywhere in the country).

We stay at KOA's frequently and as others have said some are great and some are bad. The one in Townsend TN is our favorite ever! But if your going to try them I recommend using the reviews on sites like trip advisor and such that are independent. I have found the KOA reviews on their site to be better than the campground actually is. The membership actually pays off very quickly due to their high prices so if your going to try them more than once you will generally at least pay for it and if it turns out you like them and stay more you could save some money...

Of the two KOA's we've stayed, one was outstanding, the other terrible. Pricing was similar, about $50 per night.

Lake Livingston (Onalaska, TX) KOA was beautiful, well maintained and friendly staff. Sites were pretty tight, unless you pony up for a pull through. But views of the lake were great. Independent seafood restaurant in the middle of it, "beach" area as well as pool and fishing.

Lake Conroe, TX KOA was terrible. Check-in at Noon, but no one in the office and just a sign on the door showing your campsite number (which was not the one I paid extra for) Staff unapologetic. Apparently the staff I booked it with forgot there was a high school reunion in the camp that weekend... So late night drunk people roving about too.

No maintenance and grass high and uncut. There was trash in my campsite. The power went out in the middle of the day for about two hours... Indoor pool was ok, at least we could keep cool until the power came back. We waved at a staffer on a golf cart and she just scowled at us! Left first thing in the morning. LOL
