We camp at a local campground that delivers all ice/firewood to your campsite. It cuts down on car/truck traffic and the kids that deliver will actually fill your coolers and stack your wood for you. They always make good tips.

I thought the show was interesting. Corporate is making some bucks, never seen any other undercover bosses give out as much money as last night.
- Never stayed in any Koas, they seemed to cost about twice as much as state, city and corp parks.

It seems every show is trying to out do the last with how much money they give out.

I don't usually camp at KOA's, but the few times I have, I've had no trouble and wouldn't hesitate to try one again.

The KOA's along the East Coast we've found are pretty decent campgrounds. We've stayed in a few from Maine to Florida. True, you do pay a bit more, but most have very clean facilities and a strict business code to maintain. I'd use them again.

I watched the show as well.....kinda getting old for me. The CEO's just give handouts to the few employees they meet and screw the rest of the organization. I can't stand the end of this show anymore....socialism at it's best.

We have stayed at KOA's all over the country. Some are very basic and some are over board with more things than a theme park. We like to take our grandchildren to KOA's, because they generally have a pool and play area for the kids.

We have only stayed in two KOA's so far (both in South Dakota) mid week and just driving through. Both were immaculate and not very crowded. That would be my only complaint. Very few campers but all directed to the same general area. We have reservations at a couple this coming season and again, just driving through. These will be on a weekend so the crowds may be bigger. We'll see how it goes.

The last straw came when the host came at and yelled at my son, who was playing under our awning (we were inside preparing dinner), for not being supervised. While this was just one particular KOA, we've had similar instances at others. I am a very respectable, considerate, and hospitable camper, just don't mess with my kids.

BTW, when the deputy finally left, he commended me for showing great restraint and told the owners maybe they should review their policies.
That reminds me of a private CG we was at by Brainerd Minn, Crow Wing CG, the owner there runs around in his golf cart just looking for something to yelll at you about and strict as hell, about visitors coming in-- we won't be back there. You should be able to go to a CG to enjoy yourself and not have to worry about a sheriff coming around to harass you.

We have stayed at over a dozen KOA from Freeport, ME to Ft Myers, FL. There were a couple that could use some upgrades but most were very well maintained. They are usually convenient to the major highways and we find them ideal for one night when just passing thru. Guess we are lucky that in our 3-yr (386 nights) camping we have not encountered any rude CG staff and no one yelling at us for rule infractions. Just no reason for that behavior.

While the campground is clean the KOA in Pomona CA doesn't look anything like the other California ones they showed.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
