I agree with the money part - I watch UB often and I believe the $50K gifts were the most I have ever seen given out.

Cannot comment on anything about KOA.

The San Antonio KOA Campground is very nice. Next to Ft Sam and the military hospital, only a few minutes from downtown and easy access to the interstates. We stayed there a couple times this past fall and was very happy with it.

We have stayed at a number of KOA's ND,SD, Wisconsin, Michigan and Ontario. All have been nice and clean but a couple were older and in need of some upgrades to their site power as our EMS kicked the power out a few times. One in Wisconsin the site they put us in was so tight I had to get the DW to watch the front of the truck as we pulled out to make sure we didn't hit the car across from us as they were too ignorant to move their second vehicle and chose to watch us manouver our way out instead (it was a good thing I had anticipated this and parked the way I did or we would have been forced to make them move). Palmer Gulch in SD was by all counts the nicest.

That deleted spam thread was Vietnamese in case you want to use Google translator. Maybe those are new campsites that you can order takeout via your Ipad/Droid tablet. The little white boxes are then delivered to your site via hotrod golf carts so you get them freaky fast.

I think they are not much better or worse than many private campgrounds. All have their great experiences and not so great experiences. I mostly avoid them because I do believe they are a little more expensive. Asheville, NC we were packed in like sardines and neighbors were way to close. About the same experience in Salt Lake City, Ut with the added addition of the Camping Nazi. Campgrounds don't get to pick their neighbors like most homeowners. One of my favorite private campgrounds, the last time I visited had a high school football stadium being built right beside it. Needless to say I am now looking for my new favorite in that area. JT

When we drove back from Fla, we stopped in the Yemassee S.C. Point South KOA. It was a one-nighter since we were enroute to the Outer Banks NC. That KOA had a "Hunt's" operation in the campground office that would prepare pizza and buffalo wings and deliver them to your trailer too. That was perfect since I was tired and din't want to start cooking or going back out to eat. The KOA office even had a bar in it with bar stools and beer taps. Unfortunately it was Sunday and their 'blue laws' didn't allow serving any beer, wine or liquor.

Sounds like a nice KOA as I am sure there are many. Would love a recommendation on where to stay while visiting the Outer Banks since it is on our places to visit. Thanks JT

These are the two links I use to find and read reviews on RV parks.
RV Park Reviews :: Home
RV Campgrounds, RV Camping, RV Rentals, RV Parks, RV Resorts - Woodalls

I drove to the Kitty Hawk launch sight on Outer Banks via car. Pretty area and a good one to visit.

We've stayed at "Ocean Waves" campground in Waves NC on the Cape Hatteras Nat'l Seashore. We like that campground because it's pretty far (almost 1 hour) from Nags Head and it's less crowded way down there. Ocean Waves is also a fairly inexpensive campground in comparison. Granted, their pool is small but the beach is huge.
